Derek Lofland

The Colts are just 24th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, Brees should be a QB1 again at home this week in another game that could become a shootout.The 49ers are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks, even with the shootout they had in New Orleans last week, I would not trust Ryan to be more than a low-end QB2.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The Colts have struggled defensively, allowing the ninth-most fantasy points to QBs over the past five weeks. The Saints are still fighting for the top overall seed in the NFC, and it's usually smart to put your money on Brees when he plays at home in prime time. He is a solid QB1 this week.Ryan topped 20 fantasy points for the first time since Week 6 last game, but he lost Calvin Ridley in the processes. Facing the 49ers this week, Ryan's upside is just not there, especially with him arguably having the least amount of talent around him in his career.
