The rampant complaining about Drew Brees and the underachieving New Orleans Saints seems a bit misplaced in the fantasy football world because, after all, this remains a productive group of fantasy football performers. What has happened recently is not unlike what happens to plenty of other options; when the team faces a favorable matchup, we get outstanding statistics. In tougher matchups, the team struggles. And then every so often something a bit unexplainable occurs, such as in Week 14 when the Saints’ offense, at home against a miserable Carolina Panthers defense, couldn’t do much with it.
This week, however, the Saints meet the Chicago Bears.
