Chase Holden’s Fantasy Football Start’ Em and Sit’ Em: Saints vs. Falcons It’s Week 3 and more importantly rivalry week for The Who Dat Nation! The Saints are headed up to Atlanta to take on the pesky Falcons or as I like to call them “ The Dirty Birds”. After last week’s performance Tyeler Davison Jersey Stitched , we know that the New Orleans defense still hasn't made it back to their 2017 work ethic, and head coach Sean Payton addressed that there’s still a lot of work to be done. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that these two NFC south teams light up when they play each other and fantasy owners can reap the benefits from it this week. As a reminder, all of my work will be based on PPR leagues, and obvious starters like Alvin Kamara will not be written about. Each week, I will evaluate both teams and list my picks from the matchups.Start’ EmTre’Quan Smith (NO)Tre’Quan Smith saw his first fantasy points last week against Cleveland. Although he didn’t put up much of a stat line I feel that this is the week we see the 91st overall pick of the 2018 draft get in the end zone. On Wednesday Coach Sean Payton said “We’ve got to find a way to get him (Smith) more touches. He’s handling our installation, He knows what were doing game plan wise and I think he’s ready to prove that”.This guy shows promise to be a future stud in the Saints receiving core after a standout performance during training camp and in the preseason. Now don’t get it twisted, this isn’t a player you’ll want if you play in an 8-10 man league, but If you play in a 14-16 man league don’t pass up throwing this WR3 into your lineup. Tevin Coleman - Falcons RBPhoto by Kevin C. Cox/Getty ImagesLast week, the Falcons announced that Devonta Freeman would be out for 2-3 weeks nursing a knee injury. This passed the torch to Tevin Coleman to lead the backfield and honestly he’sdoing a pretty great job so far filling Freeman's shoes. Last week against Carolina Youth Craig Robertson Jersey , Coleman put up 107 rushing yards and 4 receptions for 18 Yards. Going beyond this game, Coleman is someone you definitely want in your season long lineups and if his production continues I can definitely see his workload increasing even when Freeman returns. With the Saints having their defensive woes he is a must start in all formats for Sunday’s match up.Sit’ EmNew Orleans & Atlanta’s Defense“Really Chase, another defensive sit em?” Absolutely! The Saints and Falcons seem to bring out the best in each other offensively, which could end in a huge offensive clinic between Drew Brees and Matt Ryan. Expect a lot of scoring in Atlanta this Sunday. Both offenses have great weapons so play it safe because we all know scoring will make that initial 10 points fade away. If you own either of these defenses go ahead and grab you a streamer for this week from a different game.Mike Gillislee (NO)Mike Gillislee came to New Orleans expected to fill the absence of Mark Ingram during his 4 game suspension and he’s been nothing but disappointing since. It seems that not just anyone can waltz in and recreate the Boom and Zoom effect that New Orleans possessed in 2017. So far Alvin Kamara has surprised many (not me) being able to fill more of a single back role in this years offense and that won’t change this week in Atlanta. I personally know a few people that stashed Gillislee in hopes that he would rack up some points while Ingram served his time riding the pine but get real, he’s only owned by 1.9% of ESPN fantasy players. Unless your in a 16 man league do yourself a favor and hit the drop button.For any NFL Start/Sit questions you have, feel free to ask me on Twitter @GarageGuyChase The defending champs are reeling and seem on the verge of receiving a knockout punch.An embarrassing 48-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints 鈥?the most lopsided defeat for a Super Bowl champion 鈥?left the Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) one loss from last place. They're optimistic because they are in control of their fading playoff hopes in a mediocre NFC East. But there's nothing positive to point at following a dismal loss to the Saints (9-1)."You can't hang your head," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "If anybody does, and if anybody begins to sort of doubt, you don't need them. Because we believe, and I believe in those players Craig Robertson Jersey Stitched , I believe in those coaches. It's a group that is hurting. It's a group that will pick themselves up this week. They're not going to feel sorry for themselves and we'll get ready for the Giants."The Redskins (6-4) lead the division but just lost quarterback Alex Smith for the rest of the season. They'll face the Cowboys (5-5) for first place on Thursday. The Giants (3-7) visit Philadelphia on Sunday. If the Eagles win the last six games, they'll secure the East. But they look more like a team that can lose out than win six in a row.Carson Wentz played the worst game of his career in New Orleans, tossing three interceptions with a 31.9 passer rating. The offense managed only one touchdown, went three-and-out six times and continued spiraling downward. It barely resembles the group that outperformed the Patriots 41-33 in the Super Bowl.Running backs Jay Ajayi (torn ACL) and LeGarrette Blount (left in free agency), wide receiver Torrey Smith (traded to Carolina) and tight ends Trey Burton (left in free agency) and Brent Celek (released) are the skill players missing from that unit, along with Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles, who is Wentz's backup. Undrafted rookie Josh Adams is the lead running back but the receiver corps was upgraded with the addition of wideout Golden Tate and rookie tight end Dallas Goedert.Yet, the offense has been out of sync all season. The Eagles have scored more than 24 points only once.Pederson was bothered more by the offense's performance against the Saints because Drew Brees and Co. have run through defenses all season."We had more plays out on the field that we left, so that's the disappointing thing, that we didn't do a better job offensively and score more points Youth Ken Crawley Jersey ," Pederson said. "The 48, they're a good football team. Let's not kid ourselves there. That's a good football team, and we knew we were going to have to score points."The offense's biggest problem has been slow starts. The Eagles have scored only 21 points in the first quarter, including 14 in one game. Against the Saints, their three first-quarter possession were two three-and-outs and an interception thrown into double coverage."We keep preaching. We keep talking. We keep practicing. We put our players in those positions to execute," Pederson said. "Sometimes I think because there's been so much made about the way we've started games differently than a year ago that sometimes you want to make the play. Players just need to make the plays that come to them and don't go looking for plays. There's enough out there that when the play comes, you make it, and it starts with the first play of the game."NOTES: Pederson said CB Rasul Douglas (leg) and DB Avonte Maddox (knee) and C Jason Kelce (elbow) are fine. CB Sidney Jones (ankle) and LB Jordan Hicks (calf) are week to week. LS Rick Lovato is in concussion protocol.
