Week 3: vs Minnesota Vikings
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Drew Brees tossed 27/40 for 237 yards passing, two TDs and one interception last week, and checks in at 11th among fantasy quarterbacks so far this year with 56/82 for 570 yards passing, three TDs and two interceptions thrown to date. Last week he lost a heart-breaker at Cleveland 24-26 while relying on Jimmy Graham heavily (13 targets for 10/118/2 receiving) - five other Saints had three receptions, led by Robert Meachem (five for 3/37/0) and Kenny Stills (four for 3/25/0). Marques Colston saw no passes in Week 2, making him a big burden for fantasy owners after eight targets for 5/110/0 receiving in the first game of the year.
The Vikings' D surrendered 15/22 for 142 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions last week, while sacking Tom Brady once for -7 yards. To date, the Vikings are ranked eighth in the NFL averaging 194.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with one passing score given up vs. two interceptions generated. They slumped last week after starting out allowing St. Louis to throw 24/36 for 246 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions, with five sacks for -27 yards. This is an above-average, but not a shut-down pass defense, as of Week 3.
Brees and company have a neutral matchup at home this week.
