NFL Week 3 Regular Season
Green Bay Packers DFS Spin
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been kept clean on a league-high 83.1 percent of his drop backs through two weeks. Rodgers has been under pressure on an incredibly low 16.9 percent of his drop backs this season. Keeping Rodgers upright has led to 604 passing yards and six touchdowns through two weeks. It's a considerable change from 2019, when Rodgers was under pressure on 34.5 percent of his drop backs. He should remain in lineups this week against the Saints, though Davante Adams' hamstring woes could prove problematic for Rodgers.
New Orleans Saints DFS Spin
Drew Brees completed 26-of-38 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Saints' 34-24, Week 2 loss to the Raiders Monday night. Despite missing Michael Thomas (ankle), Brees was still able to eclipse 300 yards. The Saints jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but the Raiders controlled the game over the final 45 minutes-plus. Brees' interception was a poor throw over the middle picked off by LB Nicholas Morrow. His touchdown was a short toss to Jared Cook. Most of Brees' passing yards were piled up after the catch by Alvin Kamara, who led the team with 95 yards through the air. Brees is no longer a top-12 fantasy play at the position and won't be a recommended option next week at Green Bay.
Packers vs. Saints Betting Prediction
The over is 4-0 in the Packers’ last four games overall, is 5-0 in their last five games when playing in Week 3 and is 21-7 in their last 28 games played in the month of September. Meanwhile, the over has cashed in four of the Saints’ last five games overall, is 4-1 in their last five games when favored and is 10-4 in their last 14 games played in September. This figures to be another high-scoring game between Rodgers and Brees.
