Week 7: vs New Orleans Saints

All QB vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Alex Smith and company had a sweet passing matchup last week, and the Chiefs...ran the football all day long. Smith managed 19/22 for 224 yards passing, zero TDs and interceptions, with one sack taken for -1 yards while the running backs racked up 40/183/3. Jeremy Maclin led the team in receiving with three targets for 3/49/0 to his credit, followed by Spencer Ware (two for 2/32/0) and then Travis Kelce (three for 3/32/0). Nobody else on the team went over 30 yards receiving, though Smith did hit nine different receivers among his 19 completions. This approach wins games in the real NFL, but leaves fantasy owners invested in the K.C. passing attack less-than-enthused. The Saints' pass defense allowed 303 net yards, two TDs and one interception to Cam Newton last weekend, with two sacks recorded for -19 yards - no surprise here as New Orleans averages 301.6 net passing yards per game (31st in the NFL) with seven passing scores given out vs. a mere two interceptions and just nine sacks recorded this year (tied for last and 25th in the NFL, respectively). From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), New Orleans has averaged 26.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (third-most in the NFL); and 26.8 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-most); with 14.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (third-most). This is another great matchup for Smith and company, but the rushing matchup is also attractive so if history is any guide don't get too excited about what the Chiefs will do in this phase of the game.
