Lynch is going to have tough sledding on the road against the 2nd ranked fantasy running back defense.
The Saints were allowing the 3rd most points to fantasy backs headed into Monday Night with the Chicago Bears. Jackson should be a low RB2 instead of a flex play this week and he has upside in a game that figures to be a shootout.
