Win My Fantasy League
Jaylon Smith should be busy against a Rams offense that likes to run and move the ball via short passes before taking their shots. Smith ranked 10th in the league in solo tackles last season and projects to have a productive night against Los Angeles.One of the most productive pass rushers in the league when healthy, it has been amazing to see what Jason Pierre-Paul has been able to continue to do after his fireworks accident. The Saints present a strong plus matchup due to their work in both the short passing and the run game. JPP could get home with Shaquil Barrett occupying the offensive line's attention, but the plus here comes from tackle and tackle for loss upside, not from sacks. JPP should be in lineups due to his weekly multiple sack threat, but expectations should be tempered against Drew Brees.
