The Saints have a massive showdown looming this week vs. the Chiefs, but it seems unlikely that they will have their starting quarterback back in the lineup. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Brees had a “limited range of motion” in his last throwing session and that there’s “not a great chance” that he’ll be in the lineup. The Saints want to make sure that Brees is as close to 100% as possible before putting him back on the field, which makes sense considering that they have already clinched a playoff spot.
That means Taysom Hill will likely draw another start at quarterback, and he has been an excellent fantasy option in that role. He’s averaged 21.62 FanDuel points per game in his four starts thanks to his ability to contribute with his arm and his legs. He’s coming off a career-high 291 passing yards and two passing touchdowns in his last start, and he’s also posted two games with multiple rushing touchdowns. That’s a juicy combination for a fantasy quarterback.
The Saints are currently listed as three-point home underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook for their showdown with the Chiefs, which could be a potential Super Bowl LV preview.
