Saints quarterback Drew Brees had a good, not great, day with 297 yards and a touchdown. Certainly not the days from Brees were use to but Brees shouldn’t’ be viewed as anything more than a mid-QB1 anyway.
Meanwhile, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham had seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown which is more in-line with his usual production. He should continue to be an elite TE1 in dynasty formats even if Gronk challenges him for the top spot.
Panthers rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin had a horrible game with just two catches for 18 yards on ten targets. The targets are encouraging but it won’t happen again if Benjamin only secures two targets.
Saints linebacker Junior Galette had two more sacks to make it six on the year. He’s just getting warmed up as a sack specialist and should be viewed as a poor man’s Justin Houston and a LB2/3.
