New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons
Sunday, 1:00 PM, Georgia Dome

Saints  
PlayerRatingNotes
Drew Brees*****790 passing yards and seven touchdowns indicate Brees is hitting on all cylinders at the perfect time for fantasy owners entering the playoffs this week. 
Pierre Thomas***Would be ranked higher if he were the lone ball carrier in New Orleans.  Still has decent value against a bad Falcons defense.
Marques Colston****Has been rather inconsistent, but has scored in back-to-back games.
Robert Meachem****Has at least one touchdown in five consecutive games.  No reason to believe that streak ends this week.
Devery Henderson* 
Jeremy Shockey** 
Garrett Hartley****Should be in scoring position a lot in this one.
Saints ** 

 

Falcons

  
PlayerRatingNotes
Matt Ryan**It’s looking like Ryan will return this week, but how does the toe injury affect his play on the field?
Jerious Norwood**Norwood had one more carry than Snelling last week, so it’s looking like a 50/50 split at RB.  Unfortunately that means neither is likely to be overly productive.
Jason Snelling** 
Roddy White****Had a 100-yard receiving game and a touchdown in the last meeting.  Has scored in back-to-back games, despite being without Ryan.
Michael Jenkins  
Tony Gonzalez*****The most consistent Falcons player all year, Gonzalez continues to produce regardless the circumstances.
Matt Bryant** 
Falcons
