Week 11: vs Washington Redskins
FBG says: Neutral matchup. This is not your Saints offense as they have gone to a run-heavy offense as the team that once led the league in pass attempts is averaging just 26.7 passing attempts per game. While they are throwing less, Brees' completion percentage is on pace to be a career high at 71.7% and over his last three games, he is averaging a remarkable 78.8% completions. The lack of volume has not impacted their overall production due to the completion percentage being as high as it is as they are still averaging 260 yards passing per game on the season which ranks as the fifth most in the NFL this season, but the risk is that if the completion percentage regresses back to Drew Brees' historical averages it could have a severe impact to this offense due to the lack of volume. The Redskins found themselves in a shootout last week as they allowed Case Keenum to throw for 304 yards and four touchdowns. The issue for the Redskins on the season has been out of the slot as they have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing players out of the slot position. The Redskins Bashaud Breeland along with the safeties have been horrendous in coverage this season in D.J. Swearinger and Deshazor Everett who has filled in for the injured Montae Nicholson. Adam Thielen tore this defense apart last week going for eight receptions for 166 yards and a touchdown. The Redskins mixed and matched their defense putting linebacker Zach Brown on Thielen as well as Bashaud Breeland and neither worked this week. While the Saints move their wide receivers around quite a bit this could be a good opportunity for Michael Thomas or Ted Ginn to play more in the slot than they typically do to take advantage of some of these mismatches. Overall this is a defense that from a yardage perspective is about league average, but can be exploited if the team designs a game plan to exploit the slot receiver.
