Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Something has to give when Brady, who leads the NFL with 21 TD passes, encounters a Saints defense that's given up only six TD passes in six games. Brady has produced 11 touchdowns over his last three contests, including four last weekend against the Bears. He's likely to be without Antonio Brown (ankle) for at least one more game. The Saints have the league's second-best opponent passer rating (73.5). New Orleans defensive coordinator Dennis Allen seemed to have Brady's number last season. In three games against the Saints (including the playoffs), Brady completed 58.9% of his throws, averaging 6.0 yards per attempt and 215.7 yards per game. He had four TD passes and five interceptions in those three games and was sacked seven times. Despite being the QB1 in fantasy scoring, Brady ranks QB7 this week and is a fade in DFS contests. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 4th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Tom Brady is a matchup proof QB1 that should have a huge game in New Orleans.
