New Orleans Saints Fantasy Spin

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Alvin Kamara (ankle/knee) has not been ruled out for next week's game against the Cardinals. New Orleans decided to sit Kamara down after seeing him labor through a high-ankle injury in last week's win at Jacksonville, though he's reportedly made progress and could return to lead the Saints' backfield as soon as Week 8. The Saints have a bye in Week 9, which could influence their thinking in relation to both Kamara and Drew Brees, who has reportedly made headway in his recovery from thumb surgery. With Kamara shelved, Latavius Murray will function as the Saints' workhorse Sunday in Chicago

Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Mitchell Trubisky (questionable, shoulder) will play against the Saints in Week 7. Trubisky will be back in the saddle Sunday after having the bye week to heal his injured shoulder. The former second overall pick has largely disappointed this year, though with injuries and byes complicating the Week 7 landscape, Trubisky will at least be a serviceable two-quarterback-league starter, even against a Saints defense that completely erased Gardner Minshew in Week 6.

NFL Betting Trends

New Orleans

The Saints have covered the spread in four straight games and are 22-8 against the number in their last 30 road games.

Chicago

The Bears have failed to cover the spread in all five of their last five opportunities coming off a bye, but are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games overall.

Prediction

My stomach hurts thinking about backing Trubisky and laying four points in the process but I don’t see how the Saints move the ball today. Teddy Bridegwater has played very well in recent weeks and that New Orleans defense has been outstanding since Brees got hurt. That said, without Kamara, Bridgewater will be a sitting duck. Chicago has a ferocious front seven and I could see the wheels falling off for the Saints. The Bears are the more rested team and they should be angry after losing overseas to the Raiders two weeks ago.
