Week 3: at Atlanta Falcons

All WR vs ATL

FBG says: Good matchup. Two weeks into the season, it's clear that Drew Brees remains one of the league's best pinpoint passers. He's still deadly on slant and post routes, consistently drilling his targets as they enter their breaks and exploiting holes like few ever could. But he's yet to showcase much of a downfield game thus far. The Saints' early-season pass game has revolved around the brilliance of Michael Thomas on those physical routes and Alvin Kamara's open-field dynamism. When asked to make plays with the deep ball, Brees and company have come up short. Some of that can be blamed on the shaky state of his receivers, who simply aren't giving him much support. Ted Ginn is a nominal No. 2, but he's not built to create mismatches for 60 minutes, especially at age 33. And the Saints' other wideouts have combined to produce just 38 yards on 5 targets. This could be the week we see new addition Cameron Meredith eased into action. He's been inactive for the first two weeks but would make for a downfield presence to support Thomas, Kamara, and Ginn. More likely, though, the team will keep trying to manufacture big plays with its superstars in the short and intermediate games. That can be wildly effective with Brees at the helm, but it's lacking its usual dynamism for sure. The Falcons certainly miss linebacker Deion Jones in the passing game. The quick-footed Jones has developed into one of the league's best coverage linebackers, and his absence was a big reason Christian McCaffrey was able to catch 14 passes for 102 yards last Sunday. There were problems downfield, too, with cornerbacks Desmond Trufant and Brian Poole struggling noticeably. Poole continues to be worked over in the slot, which puts more pressure on the usually stout Trufant and the safeties. There are still playmakers in this unit, especially safety Ricardo Allen, who's grown into an elite centerfield coverage man. But with the cornerbacks flailing and the pass rush disappearing for long stretches, the Falcons will likely continue to struggle without Jones and strong safety Keanu Neal.

Saints | Cameron Meredith still getting acclimated (Fri Sep 14, 02:26 PM) - New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith is still 'getting up to speed' in the offense, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Our View: Meredith is behind Austin Carr right now and only worth holding in dynasty leagues. He might be a redraft add later in the season.
