 Anderson has not been the most consistent running back this year, but over the past month, this Denver offense has been relying on him and he has been a major help to fantasy owners. He has at least 19 touches in each of his past four games so be sure to start him this week again.

Still playing for seeding.

The Buccaneers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Brees should be a QB1 with the Saints playing for the NFC South title.The Chiefs are 14th against fantasy running backs, Anderson is a RB2 against a team that could be resting starters for the playoffs.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Brees, as usual, was excellent from a real-life perspective against the Falcons, but lackluster from a fantasy perspective, with just one touchdown pass and an interception. With a heavy reliance on the running game, it's doubtful that Brees will magically need to air the ball out next weekend against the Bucs. The Saints' playoff seeding can still move around, and they need a win to secure a home game, so expect Brees to be motivated. Still, that should leave him as just a reliable but uninspiring fantasy option.
