New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and defensive end Will Smith have a busy few days coming up. Thursday night, they will play a crucial game against the Falcons in Atlanta.

When Curtis Lofton was with the Falcons he was thought of as a stand-up guy. As a team guy. Apparently, the Falcons did a great job covering up the fact that he's just a guy with his head up his ass.
It's no secret that Lofton wanted to stay with Atlanta last season but wasn't brought back as the Falcons wanted to go in a different direction with their defense...

Drew Brees and Matt Ryan are two of the top fantasy options at the quarterback position in week thirteen. The Saints struggle on the road and the Falcons excel at home which leads us to believe that the Saints may be throwing a little more thus leading to Brees being ranked ahead of Ryan this week in my rankings.
