Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
NO defense is pretty solid but Matty Ice has all his guys healthy at home. This should be a classic shootout.
Smith has shown he can surprise, plus he's at home versus shaky Titans D.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints and Falcons tend to be high scoring games, but keep in mind that the Saints allowed the third fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks last year.
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
The Saints are known for their top-notch offensive schemes which overshadows their defensive backfield. It doesn't escape us though at FFLockerRoom. While Ryan does have White and Jones back at full-force, they will have their work cut out for them to put up big passing numbers.
