Now that we know Drew Brees is going to miss what looks to be at least six weeks, it's Bridgewater's turn to run Sean Payton's offense. He's now played in two games with the Saints, going 31-for-53 passing (58.5 percent) with 283 yards (5.34 yards per attempt) and one touchdown. That's quite the stepdown from Brees. The Seahawks front seven was able to pressure Andy Dalton 38 percent of the time, while getting pressure to the Steelers quarterbacks just 28 percent of the time. It's fair to say they're missing Ezekiel Ansah on the edge, as he's yet to play in a game. If we remove noodle-armed Ben Roethlisberger from the equation (was playing through an elbow injury), the Seahawks defense has allowed Dalton and Mason Rudolph to complete 47-of-70 passes (67.1 percent) for 530 yards (7.57 yards per attempt) and four touchdowns. Going into Seattle is never an easy thing to do but it should help that Bridgewater and the Saints have a full week to create a gameplan around Bridgewater, and not Brees, as the Rams gameplan was clearly built around Brees' strengths. Unfortunately, we may see even more Taysom Hill than we did with Brees, which would severely cap Bridgewater's upside. In a game the Saints are projected for just 20 points, it's tough to say he should be started as anything more than a low-end QB2.

Teddy Bridgewater blanks in releif duty

Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 17-of-30 passes for 165 scoreless yards in Sunday's Week 2's loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

Bridgewater played in relief of Drew Brees, who left the game with a thumb injury. While Bridgewater did not turn the ball over, he also didn't sore and couldn't get much going with his weapons. If Brees misses time, perhaps Bridgewater is worth a look to stash, but not start. Saints get the Seahawks in Week 3.
