Week 14 PPR Rankings
George Kittle photo 26. George Kittle TE - (at NO)
It was a messy game against the Ravens last week and Kittle's finishing line of 2/17/0 confirms it. They threw the ball just 21 times in that game, something that won't happen this week. The Saints opponents have averaged 38.1 pass attempts per game, so when you combine that with Kittle's tight-end-leading 25 percent target share, we have what should be a sky-high floor. The Saints have been beat over the middle of the field this year and when targeted, tight ends have caught 73.7 percent of their targets, which is the third-highest mark in the league. We've seen six tight ends finish as the TE13 or better, though none have finished in the top-five. There have been seven tight ends who've totaled at least 41 yards but none who've topped 88 yards. Looking over their schedule, they've had one of the easiest ones in football. Start Kittle as a high-end TE1 and have little concern.

Deebo Samuel photo 63. Deebo Samuel WR - (at NO)
He was the 49ers receiver we felt to have the most value last week but knowing that Sanders is back to his full-time role and seemingly over his rib cartilage issue, Samuel moves down the totem pole a bit. He's still going to be heavily involved in the gameplan, as the Saints may very well be the best run defense in the NFL. Because of that, they've faced an average of 21.7 wide receiver targets per game. They haven't allowed much on a per-target basis, though, as the 1.68 PPR points per target is right around the league average. The real downer in Samuel's projection is that he runs the fewest routes from the slot of the 49ers' receivers, and that's where the Saints have been gashed this season. It means he'll see Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple for most of the game. There have been just six wide receivers who are primary perimeter players who've finished as a top-30 PPR option against the Saints, and all but one of them saw at least nine targets (Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 74 yards and a touchdown to finish as the WR22). That doesn't give him great odds, leaving him in the high-end WR4 territory this week.

Emmanuel Sanders photo 80. Emmanuel Sanders WR - (at NO)
Sanders started his time in San Francisco incredibly hot, but he has since slowed down. In a tougher matchup against the Saints this week, Sanders is a low end WR3, but he does have upside. Still, he is the third receiving option on an offense that isn't know for its prolific passing attack.

Raheem Mostert photo 107. Raheem Mostert RB - (at NO)
Mostert has ran really well over the past two weeks, but Matt Breida is back and is expected to claim the RB1B role, to Tevin Coleman's 1A. Mostert has played well enough to earn more touches, which makes this entire backfield a mess. In terms of order of value, Mostert is likely third and isn't anything above a low end flex play.

Tevin Coleman photo 112. Tevin Coleman RB - (at NO)
Coleman has been less than impressive, while Raheem Mostert has ran really well. Now, throw Matt Breida back in the mix, and this backfield is a fantasy headache. Consider Coleman a flex play, at best, this week.

Matt Breida photo 138. Matt Breida RB - (at NO)
Breida logged full practice reps on Wednesday and is expected to be back this week for the Niners. Obviously, this backfield is a time share. He was splitting snaps with Coleman before, and now with Mostert playing so well, Breida could lose some touches to him as well. The matchup isn't great on top of it, so he is nothing more than a low end flex this week.
