Week 4: at San Diego Chargers
All TE vs SD
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Drew Brees gave it his best against the Falcons, despite doing without his number two receiver, Willie Snead (toe injury) - Brees wound up with 36/54 for 376 net yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown while taking two sacks for -17 yards. Coby Fleener finally looked settled in as the starting tight end with 11 targets for 7/109/1 receiving, followed by Brandon Coleman (eight for 7/78/0) and Mike Thomas (11 targets for 7/71/1 receiving). Though the Falcons shut down Bradin Cooks (eight targets for 2/13/0), Brees just found other guys to hit. Mark Ingram (six for 4/30/1) hauled in the other TD pass on the day. It's all good for the Saints in this phase of the game.
The Chargers allowed 331 yards passing, one TD and one interception to Andrew Luck last week, and currently average 322.0 net passing yards allowed per game, with five passing scores allowed balanced by four interceptions and seven sacks generated to date. Over the first three weeks of the season, San Diego has averaged 26 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (fourth-most in the NFL); and 23.5 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (17th in the NFL); with 11.4 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (sixth-most).
There was 661 yards passing between the Chargers and the Colts' quarterbacks in last week's game, and this matchup may exceed that total. This is a great matchup for Brees and company.
