Week 8: vs Seattle Seahawks
All TE vs SEA
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Whoa Nelly, here we go with one of the highest-octane passing attacks in the NFL - New Orleans - facing a stingy, shut-down type of pass defense - Seattle. This should be fun.
The Saints are first in the NFL averaging 339.3 passing yards per game, with 17 passing scores vs. just five interceptions thrown and nine sacks taken to date. Last week, Drew Brees took apart the Kansas City secondary to the tune of 37/48 for 367 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -8 yards. Six receivers were in the double-digits of receiving yardage: Michael Thomas (13 targets for 10/130/0 receiving), Willie Snead (11 for 9/87/0), Brandin Cooks (nine for 7/58/1), Coby Fleener (two for 2/44/0), Mark Ingram (four for 4/20/1) and Brandon Coleman (one for 1/10/1). The Saints' passing attack is going strong as you can see.
The Seahawks didn't allow any TDs to Carson Palmer last week, but he still had over 300 net yards passing when the game was all over - 29/49 for 311 net yards, with four sacks taken for -31 yards. Even with the big game averaged in, the Seahawks average 226.0 net passing yards allowed per game (ninth in the NFL), with just four passing scores given out vs. five interceptions (tied for 14th in the league) and 20 sacks (tied for third) generated. From Week Five to Week Seven of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Seattle has averaged 22.9 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (eighth-most in the NFL); and 31.2 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (fourth-most); with 8 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (10th-most),
This looks like a neutral matchup for the hard-charging Saints.
