Saints quarterback Drew Brees returned to a little normalcy with 342 yards and two touchdowns all without a full-strength Jimmy Graham. However, Brees has not looked like his usual self this year and is in the big group of QB1’s in dynasty formats.
The same could be said for Lions quarterback Matt Stafford with 299 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions without Calvin Johnson. He’s had a sub-par (for him) season as well and is squarely in the QB1 bunch but definitely not elite.
Lions receiver Golden Tate had a big day while continuing his big season with ten catches for 154 yards and a touchdown. Tate is a solid WR3/4 in dynasty formats.
Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton had a season-high 16 tackles and has solidified his standing as a low-end LB1 especially in tackle heavy formats.
