Week 13: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Drew Brees threw 35/45 for 420 yards, three TDs and one interception against the Ravens last week (and had a couple of other TDs that could have been reeled in with some better luck) - though the Saints lost Brees' fantasy owners probably won last week if they started him. Jimmy Graham (10 targets for 6/47/2 receiving) led the team in TDs, while Kenny Stills (nine for 8/98/0) led the team in receiving. Marques Colston also visited the end zone (four for 4/82/1) and Joe Morgan made two big plays on the night with a 67-yard rush and a 62-yard reception. It looks like Stills will work out just fine taking over for Brandin Cooks.
The Steelers' pass D is ranked 16th in the NFL averaging 241.6 net yards passing allowed per game, with 19 passing scores given up vs. eight interceptions (tied for 20th in the NFL) and 20 sacks (25th) generated to date. They are a mediocre-to-sub-par bunch pretty much across the board, as you can see. Zach Mettenberger (15/24 for 263 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, with zero sacks taken) and Michael Vick (10/18 for 125 yards, two TDs and zero interceptions, with four sacks taken for -7 yards) both notched two passing scores on the Steelers in their last two games played.
Advantage, New Orleans.
