Week 7: at Kansas City Chiefs
All WR vs KC
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Drew Brees dominated the Panthers' secondary last weekend - he was basically unstoppable with 34/49 for 465 yards passing, four TDs and one interception thrown, taking just one sack for -5 yards. Brandin Cooks led the charge at receiver, with nine targets for 7/173/1, while Michael Thomas (five for 5/78/1), Coby Fleener (seven for 6/74/1 receiving, plus 1/2/1 rushing) and Josh Hill (five for 2/23/1) all pulled in TDs. Only Willie Snead (seven for 4/47/0) missed out on the scoring fest among the starting receivers last weekend. It's all good for the Saints in this phase of the game entering Week Seven.
The Chiefs' pass defense averages 236.6 net passing yards allowed per game (12th in the NFL), with eight passing scores given out but a league-best nine interceptions generated. They are next-to-last in the NFL with just seven sacks this season, though, which can be a problem with New Orleans - if you allow Brees time to stand in the pocket he'll slice, dice, and julienne your secondary. Last week, Derek Carr managed 22/34 for 221 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown against this secondary, with two sacks taken for -4 yards, just under the usual pace against K.C., as the defense bounced back from a bad outing at Pittsburgh. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Kansas City has averaged 25 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (seventh-most in the NFL); and 34.1 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (third-most); with 8.1 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (12th-most). The recent numbers are skewed by the big game Ben Roethlisberger put up in Week Four (22/27 for 287 net yards passing allowed, five TDs given up and zero interceptions generated by K.C.) - most weeks they are pretty stout in this phase of the game.
This looks like a neutral matchup for Brees and company.
