The Saints grab defeat from the jaws of victory once again, as they allow 17 unanswered points to Danny Dimes and the winless New York Giants and drop their first game back in the Superdome. This was a bad game from the whole team but as the Saints continue to get healthier they should improve in all areas. Also, based on how this season has gone so far with the Saints winning every other game, they should win by 25 next week. Small victories.
STUD: Taysom Hill
Taysom Hill had a great game running and catching the football on Sunday. Hill caught 2 passes for 26 yards and rushed for 28 yards on 6 carries including two rushing touchdowns. Hill scored 16 fantasy points, his best outing of the season so far. However, a costly interception following a touchdown wiped away by a penalty cost the Saints a chance to put more points on the board. If you were bold enough to start Hill this week, he payed off in a major way. If you were a Saints fan like the rest of us, I’m sure you are wishing Hill would stop throwing the ball so much.
dud: Saints D/ST
The Saints defense let a quarterback best known for falling down when no one was around him throw for over 400 yards this week. The only turnover they got was an intercepted Hail Mary at the end of the first half, and they gave up 17 straight points to the Giants to lose the game. This was the Saints D/ST’s first negative scoring week, as they turned in -3 points. Next week is another matchup with a sneaky good offense in Washington. Hopefully the defense will be able to bounce back as they get healthier.
