2014 Week 15: Saints Fantasy Football Preview vs. Bears

After a huge game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the New Orleans Saints laid an egg against the Carolina Panthers in the Superdome. Drew Brees posted a season-low 11 points in standard ESPN leagues, and Jimmy Graham has had back-to-back pathetic outings. Kenny Stills had a monster game against Pittsburgh, but just like everybody in a Saints’ uniform, he didn’t have a good showing...

Saints go on the road against all expectations and take out Steelers 35-32

The score make it look much closer than it really was, mostly thanks to horrific prevent defense and tackling down the stretch that allowed the Steelers to score 16 points in about 2 minutes, but the Saints went into Pittsburgh and completely outplayed the Steelers. I said the Saints would need a perfect performance by Brees to win this game and that is exactly what they got. Unbelievably...

Huge win by Ravens’ total-team effort over Saints, 34-27…

What a huge win for the Ravens… They ultimately turned the Saints’ game plan into a joke. Rob Ryan’s exotic blitz pressures did not work. Joe Flacco and his receivers read the blitz so well… Joe’s audibles at the LOS were right on… The Ravens’ offensive line (especially RG Marshal Yanda and RT Ricky Wagner) was dominant. Huge run-blocking plays courtesy of the up-front...

Colston Quiets Down In Week 8 After Great Day In Week 7

Saints wide receiver Marques Colston wasn't very active against Green Bay, catching four balls for 49 yards.Fantasy Spin:Colston had six catches for 111 yards on 10 targets in Week 7, but took a back seat to Brandin Cooks and even Kenny Stills in this one. As the young receivers grow, Colston's production is likely to be more and more inconsistent.

Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7 receptions...

Fantasy Football: Which Owners Got Screwed in Week 1?

Contrary to popular belief, fantasy football is not a science. It can be dissected and experimented upon, but it cannot be predicted, nor can it be a pure form of enjoyment, largely due to repeated run-ins with agonizing playcalling and bizarre goal-line packages. Every week, fantasy owners throw their pitiful arms into the air as if the world revolves around them and their 15 member...

Saints’ Offensive Player Grades @ Falcons

The offense put up 34 points and were effective both running and passing. That should be sufficient for a win, and yet the unit will live with the regret of a couple miscues that left some points out there. And while it’s hard to blame the offense for the loss, the Colston fumble was the final dagger. Still, the Saints on this side of the ball seem in sync and primed to put up...

Brandin Cooks Bound for Superstardom with Saints

From 2006 until 2013, the Saints’ wide receiver corps underwent very little change. Led annually by Marques Colston, the Saints also featured—in no determinable pecking order—Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, and Robert Meachem. Only a quarterback of Drew Brees’ caliber could enjoy the immense success he has with such a lackluster rabble of wideouts. Of course, […] The post...
