CSC’s Fantasy Start/Sit, Chiefs vs. Saints: who to start in Drew Brees’s return

Saints meet Chiefs in clash of Super Bowl hopefuls

Start: Michael Thomas

The Chiefs are the second best defense against fantasy wide receivers this year, pretty surprising for a defense that is often considered middle of the pack. However, with Drew Brees returning Sunday, Thomas could look to continue his solid fantasy play as he has scored in double digits in three of his last four games. Start Thomas as a high end WR2 in what should be a shootout.

Sit: Saints D/ST

This should go without saying against the Chiefs, but the Saints D/ST is still being started in around 52% of leagues. Despite the fact that the Saints are a top 5 fantasy defense, and that Patrick Mahomes threw 3 interceptions last week against Miami, the Chiefs are by far the best offense in the league. They are “giving up” -5 points per game against fantasy defenses. Even though the Saints defense has been stellar this year, its hard to see any defense in the NFL slowing down the Chiefs.

Sit: Clyde Edwards-Helaire

Edwards-Helaire has been consistently average in his fantasy production this year, scoring 9+ points in all but two games this year. However, his low ceiling against a tough run defense in the Saints, should land him outside of the top 20 as far as running back go in Week 15. I would only use CEH as a FLEX in larger leagues for this week.
