The New Orleans Saints host the Atlanta Falcons in a matchup testing the Falcons undefeated record, but more importantly for fantasy owners, providing arguably the most interesting matchup of the day. To help you prepare your fantasy football lineup this week, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
The Falcons skill position players remain healthy as they look to continue their undefeated run. They face a Saints defense that has been awful against both the pass and the run, opening the door for some great fantasy options. There really are no bad starts among the Falcons starters this week.

The Saints will be without Darren Sproles due to his hand injury, leaving a question mark at running back. The Falcons have struggled against the run this year, but it is a roll of the dice whether you start Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram or Chris Ivory. Outside of bye week fill-ins, none of the three backs is a safe option.
The Falcons have performed well against the pass this season, but even still, the Saints remain a consistently strong passing attack. Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston remain strong. Lance Moore has struggled with consistency, but even he is a decent bye week and general flex option this week.
