The Buffalo Bills are getting into the red zone at an astounding rate which should turn into more opportunities for the running game to score and less field goals for Dan Carpenter.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
No Ingram makes him very active in Saints home opener vs Vikes.
Still has a role but hasn't been all that effective and matchup isn't the best
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas should maintain his flex value against the Vikings as the Saints offense should be more explosive at home.

Rough start to the season for Fred, who is going to look to be wholly reliant on scoring touchdowns now that he's splitting carries with Spiller down the middle.
