Week 15: vs Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

FBG says: Good matchup. Drew Brees accounted for six touchdowns (5 passing, 1 rushing) and 349 passing yards in last week's loss to the 49ers. While last week was certainly his best performance of the season, it was not at all out of the ordinary for Breesas he has had huge weeks throughout his 19-year career and has actually passed for three touchdowns in four of his last seven games since returning from injury in Week 8. A big part of his success this season has to be attributed to having the best wide receiver in football, Michael Thomas. Now garnering MVP buzz, Thomas handily leads the league in both receptions (121) and receiving yards (1,424) while also averaging a league-leading 11.4 targets per game. Thomas has now exceeded 100 receiving yards in seven of his last nine games with double-digit receptions in five of those outings. Beyond Thomas, tight end Jared Cook has been a reliable contributor through the air with over 60 yards in three straight games and three touchdowns over that span. Cook exited last week's game early with a concussion though, so his status may be in question for this Monday night game. The Colts defense has certainly shown some signs of weakness lately as they have allowed season-highs in total points (31 and 36) in back-to-back weeks. Their secondary is relatively absent of individual playmakers, yet they had been playing very well as an overall unit for most of the season--holding opposing quarterbacks to the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game through the first 10 weeks of the season. Their last four games have been a different story, however, as the Colts have given up multiple passing touchdowns in all four games, an average of 313 passing yards per game, and have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. After coughing up over 450 yards and four touchdowns to Tampa Bay last week, this defense is firmly trending in the wrong direction. Cornerback Pierre Desir stands no chance against Michael Thomas, while even the likes of Ted Ginn and tight end Jared Cook (if he plays) should all have favorable matchups. The Colts have had some success in rushing opposing passers with top edge rusher Justin Houston, but they should be outmatched this week against the top-tier Saints offensive line that has given up the fourth-fewest sacks (21) in football. All in all, the Saints passing offense should have ample opportunities to continue putting up big numbers through the air this week.
