Falcons vs. Saints Week 11 Prediction
Reports state that the Saints will start Taysom Hill at quarterback for the injured Drew Brees Sunday versus their NFC South rivals the Falcons at 1:00 p.m. ET. Is Atlanta a live dog catching four points in this divisional clash?
453 Atlanta Falcons (+4) at 454 New Orleans Saints (-4); o/u 49

Venue: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, LA
Atlanta Falcons DFS Notes
Calvin Ridley (foot) will play in Week 11 against the Saints. Ridley doesn't have an injury designation on the team's final practice report -- he looks like a full go against the Saints. Ridley's return puts something of a damper on Julio Jones' target share, though both should be treated as set-it-and-forget-it WR1s in a game with the week's fourth highest over-under (50.5).
New Orleans Saints DFS Notes
Saints head coach Sean Payton won't name a starting quarterback for Week 11 against the Falcons. “I haven’t announced that either one of them are starting," Payton said when asked whether Taysom Hill or Jameis Winston would start in place of Drew Brees (ribs, lung) this week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Friday that Hill would start Week 11 against Atlanta. That doesn't mean Winston won't be involved in some way against the Falcons. If he gets the nod at QB, Hill would be a top-end tight end option on fantasy sites that give him tight end eligibility, while said eligibility sparks a civil war on fantasy football Twitter.
