It’s the playoffs in a lot of fantasy leagues around the country. The Colts and the Saints both have a good amount of players you should start.
The Colts travel down to New Orleans on Monday night to try and stop their awful slide. But if you’re still in your fantasy playoffs, you’re looking much better. I am in the semi-finals myself. There are some players on both teams from this game that are good plays fantasy wise.
Personally, I will be starting Marlon Mack. Mack didn’t see too much action in the second half against Tampa Bay, but did score a touchdown. Expect him to get more play on Monday night, especially in the second half. He might be the Colts’ best option to move the ball.
Jacoby Brissett did put up good fantasy numbers last week. If Indy is going to win, he’s going to have to have a big game. Brissett might be a good start if you have an injured quarterback. He has a chance to throw some touchdowns and accumulate yards.
Jack Doyle is the only other player worth starting. Doyle is only valuable if he scores a touchdown. Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to figure out when he is going to score. Only start him if you have no better options.
The Saints have plenty of players to start however. Drew Brees is a must-start. The 40-year old has been slinging the ball as good as he ever has been. He is a QB1 for sure this week, and all weeks no matter who you’re playing against.
Michael Thomas is a must-start as well. He is the best receiver in football and is a matchup nightmare. The Colts are banged up in the secondary so they could have even more issues stopping Thomas. He could put up big numbers for you.
Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook are the other two players who you should start. Cook had a monster game last week, catching two touchdown passes. Kamara is always a threat to go off at any given time. Both players will put up numbers against the Colts.
Whoever you matchup against this week, these players should help you get a win.
