Here's the situation - it's the last week before the playoffs. I'm on a 6 game winning streak and am now in 4th place but I'm facing the #1 team (also on a 6 week streak) which scored 188 points last week. The team I beat last week is 1 game behind me and is playing an abandoned team. We split the season series but if I lose this week I will probably be in the consolation bracket.
So I have to win this week.
Torn on Brees vs Tyrod.
Taylor has been on fire, scoring 26-plus fantasy points in each of his last 2 games against very good KC and Houston defenses. The Philly D has given up more points to QBs than any other team in the last 4 weeks
Meanwhile the Saints are playing on the road against Tampa Bay. Brees is averaging just 12.61 PPG in 5 road games played this year. His only bad home outing was also against Tampa Bay, getting only 12.1 points.
NFL.com's projection has Brees at 22.54 and Tyrod at 12.02...
Leaning toward Tyrod. Any thoughts?
