The Saints are 16th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 3 weeks, but Rodgers is on fire right now and the Saints have no answers for him or the Packers offense.
Denver is 9th against fantasy quarterbacks, but the opponents have not been great fantasy quarterbacks and Rivers should be better suited to do well on the short rest than Broncos QB Peyton Manning.
