Saints quarterback Drew Brees was surgical, going 30 of 42 for 313 yards and four touchdowns. Like Peyton Manning, age is an issue with Brees but could be worth a championship or two in your dynasty leagues.
Saints receiver Marques Colston had his best game of the year with nine catches for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Colston will be 31 next year and is headed to the back-loaded portion of his contract. His value takes a big hit if he doesn’t play in New Orleans. Futhermore, there’s really no consistent receiving option in New Orleans besides Jimmy Graham.
Panthers tight end Greg Olsen led the team in targets and receptions with 12 targets, hauling in eight for 40 yards. He seems to be Cam Newton’s primary target. If Carolina should upgrade their receiving position, look for Olsen’s value to take a hit.
