New Orleans Saints
DST - NO
Week 7 Outlook
The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 373 total yards and 22 points in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Football Team.
The Saints' defense forced two turnovers and recorded two Taylor Heinicke sacks. While they played well enough to win, it was not their best day in fantasy. They have a bye in Week 6.
The Saints D/ST surrendered 485 total yards 27 points in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Giants.
The Saints D/ST had two really good games in fantasy and a pair of really bad ones. This was one of the poor showings of 2021. They will get a shot to bounce back in Week 5 against Washington, but the Football Team's offense is firing on all cylinders with Taylor Heinicke running the show.
The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 300 total yards and 13 points in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Patriots.
The Saints' defense had a solid fantasy output in Sunday's win. They sacked Mac Jones twice and picked him off three times. The Saints' D/ST should only be used in fantasy when they are in a favorable matchup.
The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 383 total yards and 26 points in Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Panthers.
The Saints came back down to earth on all facets in Sunday's loss. They were also down players and coaches on the defensive side of the ball due to COVID. The Saints are a matchup-dependent D/ST option in fantasy.
The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 229 total yards and three points in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Packers.
The Saints had their way with the Packers from the start and never looked back. They dominated Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in all phases. They forced three turnovers and totaled a pair of sacks on Rodgers and Jordan Love, who played a lot of the fourth quarter with the game out of reach. The Saints will get the Panthers in Week 2.
