New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is always even-keeled and professional, but that doesn’t mean he’s putting a smile on for the team’s ugly 1-4 start.
New Orleans Saints
Mark Ingram (Running Back): The Texans have given up the 9th most fantasy points to running backs so this is a positive matchup for Ingram. The Texans are incredibly hot as they have won their last two games however the Saints are looking to avoid a 3 game losing streak.
Pierre Garcon (Wide Receiver): New Orleans has given up the 10th most fantasy points to wide receivers all season long. Garcon has been somewhat disappointing this season but this week 10 matchup yield his best fantasy output of the season.

You may be just sobering up from that fantasmagorical Saints’ shootout win over the New York Giants on Sunday, but when you finally come to your senses, consider this: We have just experienced what might be the most memorable 30-hour streak in sports history. I am not talking about wall-to-wall ball of close games. I am talking about a series of events that sporting fans will still be talking about ten years from now. And, although it is during the meat of the college football season, not one college game entered into it.
