Saints Rushing offense

Bad matchup vs. the Vikings defense.

The Saints ground game was one of the biggest surprises of this season as they successfully utilized the unique talents of both Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram throughout the season. It is rare to see the same team have two running backs both finish amongst the top-10 in fantasy scoring, but the Saints did just that as Kamara finished fourth while Ingram finished right behind him at sixth. Ingram consistently out-carried Kamara on the ground for most of the season, but in their last four games, the split has been much more even with Ingram rushing only four more times than Kamara. When Kamara has the ball in his hands, he has been absolutely electric as he finished the season with over 6.0 yards per rush attempt and eight rushing touchdowns despite only 120 rush attempts on the season. Kamara has definitely been utilized more so as the Saints pass-catching back, while Ingram remains their bruiser and primary goal-line option. Ingram’s workload on the ground has been extremely consistent, with between 11 and 14 carries in each of his last seven games of the regular season. Last week’s outing was a bust for this rushing offense as a whole though, as the Saints allowed Drew Brees to carry the team via the passing attack as neither Ingram nor Kamara could find room to run on the ground. Ingram has actually averaged fewer than 3.5 yards per attempt in each of his last three games, failing to surpass 45 rushing yards in any of those outings. The Saints lost their starting left guard Andrus Peat last week, which will certainly cause some disruption on what has been a solid offensive line for most of this season. Seeing how their ground game struggled last week, this matchup is not one that the Saints rushing offense will be looking forward to

If the Saints struggled to rush against the Panthers last week, they will most certainly struggle against Vikings top-tier run defense in this week’s matchup. The Vikings are ranked fifth against the run using DVOA, allowing just 83.6 rushing yards per game during the regular season—second-fewest in the league. They held opposing running backs to the fewest fantasy points per game this season while only one running back has surpassed 100 rushing yards against them. Their linebackers have been solid while the Vikings have elite talent on the defensive line with Everson Griffen on the outside and Linval Joseph clogging up the interior. A big difference-maker for the Vikings this season has also been the ability of their safeties to contribute in run defense, as Harrison Smith has been one of, if not the, best run-defending safeties in the league. This defense has stayed healthy pretty much all year and is coming off a couple weeks of rest this week. The Saints have a strong offensive line, but the Vikings defensive line matches up well with them and should be able to apply constant pressure while clogging up holes.

Saints Passing offense

Bad matchup vs. the Vikings defense.

The Saints passing offense definitely took a step back this season from their recent high-octane seasons as New Orleans finally found a ground game with the combination of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Despite the reduced passing yardage though, Drew Brees still had an excellent season under center as he finished the year with a pristine 72.1 completion rate and over eight passing yards per attempt—the only quarterback that started at least half the season to surpass that mark. Drew Brees has been one of the best in the league at throwing deep balls, and one of his primary targets downfield has been Ted Ginn. We saw last week what Ginn can do through the air as he hauled in an 80-yard touchdown bomb for the Saints’ first score of the game. Ginn finished the regular season with 15 receptions of 20 or more yards in length. The top receiver for the Saints though, Michael Thomas, actually bested Ginn with 22 receptions of 20 or more yards on the year. Thomas has been stellar since entering the season as a rookie, proving that he can make tough, physical catches underneath with the ability to blow the top off a defense on the very next play. Thomas has been riding hot lately with at least 90 yards or a touchdown in seven of his last nine games, including a season-high 131 receiving yards in last week’s win. Alvin Kamara has been the second-most targeted receiving option for the Saints as he has provided an electric option for Drew Brees all season long. Despite his dud of a performance last week, Kamara is the kind of running back who can (and has) bust a long play at any given moment when he finds some space. Josh Hill is also a name to watch at tight end, as he is playing over 80% of the snaps at tight end with at least one red zone look in each of his last two games, including a touchdown and a season-high 49 yards last week. He is not being heavily targeted with just between two and four targets in each of his last six games, but the Saints offensive scheme has been known to favor tight ends in the red zone.

The Vikings own one of the best defenses in the league and coming off two weeks rest, this unit is one that should be very much ready to go against the Saints this week. The Vikings are ranked top-5 against both the pass and run using DVOA—the only team in the league to accomplish that feat. On the season, only the Jaguars have allowed fewer fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks than the Vikings. The Vikings have actually allowed the league’s fewest passing touchdowns (just 13) while giving up the second-fewest passing yards per game (192) and fewest passing yards per attempt (5.55). They have a shut-down cornerback in Xavier Rhodes who has had success against most receivers he has faced this season. Rhodes should match up against Michael Thomas this week, who he helped limit to just five receptions for 45 yards in their Week 1 meeting. Terence Newman has also been excellent in coverage out of the slot, so not much should be expected out of the Saints slot man Brandon Coleman this week. Tedd Ginn Jr. actually should have the best chance amongst Saints receivers this week as he faced off against their worst cornerback, Trae Waynes, who has given up close to a 60% catch rate as quarterbacks have opted to target him heavily in lieu of getting near Rhodes. Alongside the Vikings cornerbacks are two of the best safeties in the league, including Harrison Smith who has had a Pro Bowl-caliber season. The front seven for the Vikings has been equally, if not more, dominant than their stout secondary with talent on both the interior and exterior of their defensive line along with a Pro Bowl linebacker in Anthony Barr. The Saints offensive line, while a solid unit on the season, should be outmatched here which will limit the time Drew Brees has to find an open man. While it is tough to count out the Saints pass attack, they will be fighting an uphill battle against this stout Vikings defense.

Vikings Rushing offense

Good matchup vs. the Saints defense.

The Vikings ground game finished the year in a good spot as they ranked seventh with 1,957 rushing yards on the season while also tied for seventh with 15 rushing touchdowns. If not for the loss of Dalvin Cook early in the season, that ranking very well may have been even higher. This rushing offense has been in good hands with the combination of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon leading the charge. Since Week eight, only three running backs have more carries than Latavius Murray as he has been one of the most heavily used running backs in the league over the second half of the season. Murray has definitely been the work horse back on the ground in this offense, but he has needed that volume to post decent numbers as Murray managed to average just under 3.9 yards per carry as he struggled to find space more often than not. Murray closed out the season with 20 or more carries in three straight games while averaging 85 rushing yards per game with three rushing touchdowns, including a multi-touchdown day against Chicago in their season finale. Jerick McKinnon has been the third down back for the Vikings, working in only moderately in the ground game with fewer than 10 carries in four of his last five games of the season and 50 or fewer rushing yards in each of his last 10 games. The Vikings did lose their starting left guard Nick Easton in Week 16, but that was a minor loss as his replacement Jeremiah Sirles has done a decent job in replacement as the Vikings remained a top-tier unit in Week 17 according to Footballguys offensive line guru Matt Bitonti.

The Saints run defense has been nothing to write home about this season despite owning middle-of-the-pack statistics such as their 16th-ranked 111.7 rushing yards allowed per game. On a per rush basis, the Saints actually gave up 4.4 yards per carry, ranking them tied for fifth-most in the league. Their rushing defense was massively protected by their high-powered offense that kept opposing offenses in a pass-first mode as they were often playing from behind. While they have a Pro Bowl defensive end in Cameron Jordan, he is not known for his effectiveness against the run. The interior of their defensive line has definitely underperformed while linebacker has been their biggest weakness against the run with both Manti Te’o and Craig Robertson missing tackles and assignments on a regular basis this season. Only four running backs have rushed more than 20 times in a game against the Saints, but the Saints allowed an average of nearly 110 rushing yards per game to those four running backs—so it is clear that this front seven can be worn down with volume. With Latavius Murray getting fed like he has in recent weeks, this could shape up nicely for him to have some late-game success as the interior of the Saints defense breaks down.

Vikings Passing offense

Tough matchup vs. the Saints defense.

Case Keenum has done an excellent job under center for the Vikings for most of this season. In his first season with more than 10 starts, Keenum looked solid with an above-average 67.6% completion rate while averaging just under 240 passing yards per game with 22 touchdowns to only seven interceptions. Keenum finished the season with a couple of how more mediocre passing games from a statistical perspective, but he did a great job taking care of the football during the second half of the season with only two interceptions throughout his final seven games. The Vikings and Saints did play in the first game of the regular season, and the Sam Bradford-led Vikings offense cruised past the Saints as Bradford posted nearly 350 passing yards while Adam Thielen finished with 157 passing yards—his second-highest mark in a game this season. With Bradford under center and Dalvin Cook in the backfield though, this Vikings team from Week 1 is tough to compare to what they have on the field now. Regardless of his quarterback, Adam Thielen has had a career year with 1,276 receiving yards—fifth-most in the league. Thielen has been a consistent threat for the Vikings, but he did cool off near the end of the season with only 115 receiving yards over his last three games. Stefon Diggs has been the second option for the Vikings through the air this season. While he took a step back from his 2016 season with far fewer big plays, Diggs still put up respectable numbers and finished the season on a high note with a touchdown in each of his last three games. Diggs also found the end zone twice in the Week 1 matchup against the Saints—one of his two multi-touchdown games this season as Diggs finished with twice as many touchdowns as Adam Thielen. Kyle Rudolph has been a solid pass-catching tight end this season, but he finished the year banged up with only four receptions for 26 yards in his final three appearances. Rudolph was a big red zone threat for the Vikings though as he tied Thielen for the team lead in red zone looks among receivers and tight ends, converting eight of those 16 red zone looks for touchdowns. Rudolph saw a red zone look in all but two games this year if you factor out his last couple of games with Rudolph on a reduced snap count due to injury.

To the same point as above, the Saints defense (and secondary in particular) has definitely evolved as the season has progressed since their Week 1 meeting with the Vikings. This defense has been up and down throughout the season against the pass—but when they have been good, they have absolutely shut down opposing passing offenses. A huge part of this defense’s success has been rookie cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Lattimore has been as close to a shut-down cornerback as you can get, posting elite numbers such as a catch rate of just over 50% while allowing one of the lowest rates of fantasy points per route run in the league. On the other side, second-year starter Ken Crawley has actually not been far behind Lattimore in terms of his success this season while rookie safety Marcus Williams has also impressed in coverage over the top. Lattimore is clearly the rock of this secondary though, and this was put on display when he missed nearly three full games due to injury. Over that three-game span, the Saints allowed over 322 passing yards in two of those games while giving up seven passing touchdowns with just one interception over that span. As soon as Lattimore returned, the Saints fired off four games in a row with just a single passing touchdown allowed per game and nine interceptions over that span. From a fantasy perspective though, those big games throughout the season are certainly something to be kept top of mind when considering what this defense is capable of. While the Saints finished the season near the middle of the pack allowing the 18th and 15th most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks and wide receivers, they closed out their last eight games giving up the 14th and 5th most fantasy points per game respectively to these positions. The Saints allowed an average of 356 passing yards per game in their last two outings, which is not at all a positive trend to boost this unit’s confidence. However, Marshon Lattimore was still an elite presence despite the tough day on the stat book for the team as he allowed only one completion for 19 yards when targeted. This week, expect Lattimore to shadow Stefon Diggs while backup cornerback P.J. Williams should see most snaps against Adam Thielen from the slot. Diggs is facing a very tough challenge, while Thielen actually has a solid matchup against the backup Williams who is filling in for Kenny Vaccaro after he was placed on injured reserve recently. In the trenches, the Saints have a top-10 pass rush led by Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Jordan, while the Vikings have a quite solid offensive line that has only allowed 27 sacks on the season—tied for seventh-fewest in the league. This Saints defense as a whole is a tough unit to play against and they have the ability to shut down opposing receivers, but the Vikings have exploited matchups all season line and should have a chance to do it yet again here despite the lack of production we might expect from whoever is lined up opposite Lattimore.
