New Orleans Saints
The Saints' offense remains as potent as ever, and Oakland ranks dead last in points allowed, so it should be another day at the office for Drew Brees. The only real question mark is in the backfield--Darren Sproles is questionable with a fractured hand, and the emergence of Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram have made this situation too muddy for fantasy owners to trust. Other than that, the Saints should cruise--Marques Colston and Lance Moore are must-starts. Jimmy Graham is fully healed from his ankle injury and should keep on trucking.
And then there's the defense. The less said about it the better.
Yeah, so about that Saints defense...Carson Palmer threw for 782 yards the past two games, and he should continue his hot streak here. Palmer is a great fantasy sleeper this week. Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson are out again with high ankle sprains, so look for Marcel Reece to rack up the receptions again. He's a nice PPR play and has flex value in standard leagues.
Denarius Moore caught his fifth TD of the season last week and should continue getting his targets with Darrius Heyward-Bey questionable. Perhaps the biggest surprise for Oakland has been TE Brandon Myers. Through nine games, he's already tripled his career highs in catches and yards. The low number of TDs has limited his standard fantasy value, but Myers is a great PPR play this week.
