FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
KING OF THE HILL (WEEK 13)
BEAST DOME NATION.
The Fantasy Football Season continues with a Thursday Night Showdown against two teams going for a playoff spot. The Cowboys come into New Orleans ready to face a very strong defense. While Dak and company has looked solid as of late, minus that weird Week 11 game against the Chiefs. This one could be a challenge.
Going up against the Saints, the Cowboys cannot take too many shot. The Saints Defense at home reaches a whole new level, especially on Primetime TV when the whole city will be rallied. Even Tom Brady is never safe when he comes to play against the Saints. The Cowboys cannot rely on the run game, Saints front 7 will eat them up. The Cowboys have to find whatever mismatches the Saints give them in the passing game. With Amari Cooper back, Gallup and Lamb and Schultz will all see less coverage and that gives Dak an advantage.
Saints are going with Taysom Hill. A move that should have been made instantly when Jameis Winston went down. The problem with the Saints offense, they have nobody to throw to. With Taysom Hill that does not matter. Hill will pound the rock all game long, and you can expect Mark Ingram to do the same. Alvin Kamara returns, but at less than 100% in not a great matchup, I am not in love with his upside.
The Saints will pound pound and punt. The Cowboys will dink dink and dak. In the end, Cowboys have a much better chance of scoring more points in this game because the Saints simply cannot score that many points.
