Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After posting 23.5 fantasy points against the Cowboys, Allen has now scored 17.2 or more fantasy points on 10 different occasions this year. The only other quarterbacks who can say they've done it more than eight times are Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott. He's on fire but will face his toughest test of the season when the Ravens come to town. They've been potentially the toughest matchup in football for quarterbacks since Week 4. Over their last eight games, they've allowed just five passing touchdowns while intercepting seven passes. They've also held quarterbacks in check on the ground, as none have rushed for more than 27 yards all season. The 17.4 fantasy points they've allowed on the ground to quarterbacks ranks in the bottom-five, and Allen doesn't get very many designed runs, so this could be problematic. We haven't seen a quarterback finish better than the QB13 against them since back in Week 3 and that was against Patrick Mahomes, who kind of does that to everyone. Even the mobile Russell Wilson was held to just 241 passing yards, 27 rushing yards, and one touchdown against them. Allen should still present a semi-decent floor with his legs, but he's nothing more than a middling QB2 for this matchup with a very limited ceiling.The issue when the Saints defense plays well is that it'll limit Brees' pass attempts. We saw that happen in Week 13 when he threw just 30 attempts. It's odd to see that the two games he's posted less than 20.8 fantasy points this year came each time he played the Falcons. The matchup with the 49ers is going to be a tough one. They've been continually getting to the opposing quarterback, generating a sack on 11.3 percent of dropbacks. This is an issue because Brees was without both left tackle Terron Armstead (ankle) and left guard Andrus Peat (forearm) against the Falcons last week. That's his blind side, so monitoring their health would be wise. Even if they're healthy, the 49ers have allowed a league-low 161.6 passing yards per game. That's not a misprint. There's been just one quarterback to throw for more than 242 yards against them, and that was way back in Week 2. They've allowed just 12 passing touchdowns through their 12 games, with no quarterback tossing more than two against them. The only quarterbacks who've finished inside the top-10 against them have been Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray (twice), and Andy Dalton. Jackson and Murray are obviously much different players and do a lot of scoring on the ground, while Dalton's QB10 finish was back in Week 2. We all know Brees offers nothing on the ground, and actually has Taysom Hill stealing some production at quarterback. It's hard to bet against Brees at home but the 49ers drop him into the high-end QB2 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Allen does go against the 4th ranked Ravens fantasy QB D, but he has also been on a tear in recent weeks. He is a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 at home in a tough matchup.The 49ers are 3rd against fantasy quarterbacks, but Brees is a player that can have a big game against anyone at home. I think he is a QB2 this week, but he does have some upside at home.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 The 49ers have allowed an average of 169.4 passing yards over their past five games. This is a solid defense and Brees is not a high volume passer, or a QB that pushes the ball down the field, anymore. He is firmly in the QB2 range for this week's matchup.
