Week 12: at Los Angeles Rams

All WR vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. Drew Brees returned to form last week as he had his best game of the season, passing for 385 yards and two touchdowns while giving up one interception. These are the kind of big games we used to expect of Brees on a weekly basis, but he hasn't had as much of a need to pass this season since the Saints have been rushing the ball so effectively and are finally getting good play out of their defense. Michael Thomas had double-digit targets for the third straight week and sixth time this season as he hauled in six of 11 targets for 91 yards. Brees really spread the ball around last week as four players finished with five or six receptions and between 74 and 91 yards. Alvin Kamara continues to play a big role in the passing offense while Ted Ginn bounced back from a one-catch showing in Week 10 to post 87 yards from six receptions. Colby Fleener had his best game of the season also with 91 yards on five receptions, but he has been a non-factor since back to back touchdowns in the Saints first two games this season. The Rams defense had one of their worst games of the season last week as they gave up 24 points with neither a sack nor a turnover. Coming into last week, the Rams secondary had been playing pretty well as they had at least one interception eight of nine games with just one quarterback passing for over 260 yards against them. They were torched on a few big plays by the Vikings last week, particularly on behalf of Adam Thielen. The big culprit here was slot cornerback Dominique Hatfield, who was forced into the game when Kayvon Webster sustained a concussion in the first half. Webster's status this week is uncertain, but if he sits, this should provide a mismatch opportunity for Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn on the outside. The Saints let Ginn and Thomas alternate sides, so Thomas should see Trumaine Johnson on some snaps as well. Johnson did a great job on Stefon Diggs last week, so this is not as positive of a matchup. Overall, the Rams still have a solid secondary with very talented safeties and a couple of elite interior defensive linemen to apply pressure on the quarterback. While the Rams still may not be able to stop this high-powered Saints offense in the midst of an eight-game winning streak, it still should be a tough matchup on the road for Drew Brees and company.
