New Orleans @ Washington
Team Totals: Saints 23, Football Team 21
Saints-Football Team profiles as a fantasy-unfriendly affair with Week 5’s third-lowest total and New Orleans nursing injuries to LT Terron Armstead (elbow) and C Erik McCoy (calf) against Washington’s loaded defensive front. Sean Payton’s ongoing effort to hide Jameis Winston translated to lowly Weeks 1-4 pass attempt totals of 20, 22, 21, and 23, while Taysom Hill’s Weeks 3-4 involvement spiked with Payton forced to manufacture offense. Taysom should be stashed in all two-QB/Superflex leagues. Especially with Armstead and McCoy likely on the shelf, I’m teeing up Washington’s D/ST here. … Alvin Kamara generated post-Week 4 attention for the first target-less game of his career, yet Kamara is on pace for a career-high 374 touches, and I’m willing to bet Payton imminently increases Kamara’s receiving involvement.
