Week 2: at Los Angeles Rams

All QB vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. New Orleans kickstarted their 2019 campaign with a thrilling 30-28 home victory over the Houston Texans. Quarterback Drew Brees showed no signs of slowing down in his age-40 NFL season, as he turned in another wildly-efficient 370-yard, multi-touchdown performance. Michael Thomas continued to dominate opposing defensive backs with yet another 10-catch and 100-yard performance to open the season. Following an injury-shortened season, Ted Ginn, Jr. re-emerged as Drew Brees' second-favorite wide receiver in the offense by catching all 7 of his targets for 101 yards against Houston. Second-year receiver Tre'Quan Smith was unable to carve out a significant role in the Saints' offense as many had hoped. Smith tallied just two targets in the opener, and slots in firmly as the third option at wide receiver as the pecking order currently sits. Running back Alvin Kamara proved to be an elite receiving option for the position in week one with 7 catches for 72 yards on 8 targets. Kamara registered the second-most targets on the team in 2018, and he will undoubtedly continue to make an impact there this season. New Orleans' notably strong offensive line stifled the Houston Texans' pass rush in the season opener. A clean pocket is critical to success for any aerial attack, and the New Orleans Saints excel at protecting franchise quarterback Drew Brees. Expect the Saints to continue to give opposing secondaries fits throughout the season in 2019. The Los Angeles Rams turned in a fantastic defensive performance on the road in week one. The Rams held Cam Newton and the Panthers to just 239 passing yards, 0 touchdowns, and 1 interception on the day. Christian McCaffrey finished the day as Carolina's leading receiver out of the backfield while D.J. Moore led the receivers with 76 receiving yards on 10 targets. The Rams' defense dominated on all three levels, as the defensive linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs each contributed heavily. On the defensive line, Dante Fowler, Jr. turned in one of the most impressive performances of his career with 6 pressures and 2 sacks on Newton to open the season. Aaron Donald, unsurprisingly, dominated on the interior as well with three pressures of his own. At linebacker, both Cory Littleton and Bryce Hager defended the pass exceptionally well, with the former intercepting Cam Newton late in the fourth quarter to help secure the victory. Finally, in the secondary, the addition of All-Pro safety Eric Weddle paid dividends early thanks to an expectedly-strong performance at the back-end of this defense to go along with Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters who looks to rebound from a rough 2018. The Rams' defense is as talented as any at all three levels, and they will surely give offenses fits all season long.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)

The man continues to do it all. Hill lined up as a tight end, quarterback, and played special teams again this week. He did not throw a pass under center and it was clear they were going to run the ball each time with the zone read. The biggest drive came in the 3rd quarter where Hill was given a chance under center and then caught a touchdown pass on the next play. Hill faked to Kamara on the zone read and took the ball 6 yards down the sideline as he lowered his shoulder and ran over the Texans corner. On the very next play, he shifted back to receiver and Brees found him in the middle of the end zone for an easy touchdown. Bridgewater still looks to be the actual backup quarterback for the team, but Hill shoes his value in being able to play all over the place. The red zone snaps for Hill cuts into the value of Cook or any other tight end the Saints have on the field.
