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.
Cleveland has one of the tougher defenses in the NFL, but their offense is going to sabotage their good efforts and Big Ben is one of the best at extending plays.

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.

Big Ben usually kills the Browns but their D is borderline elite these days, so I doubt he goes off in week 1.
