MATCHUP SUMMARY

The visiting Saints will travel to Carolina fresh off their huge win over Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers 38-3. In what was arguably the biggest surprise in week 1, veteran QB Jameis Winston outshined Rodgers finishing with five touchdowns passes completing 14-20 passes. At least for one week, it looks like the Saints made the right decision choosing Winston over Taysom Hill to be their starter. Star running back Alvin Kamara was held mostly in check gaining 83 yards on the ground on 20 carries but did catch a touchdown from Winston.

Sam Darnold got some revenge against his former team the New York Jets in week 1 when they grinded out a 19-14 home win. Darnold completed 24-35 passes for 279 yards and a long touchdown pass to Robby Anderson. Star RB Christian McCaffery led the team in both rushing and receiving when he carried the ball 21 times for 98 yards and added nine receptions for 89 yards. He may find the yards tougher to come by this week against a solid Saints defense.

 

THE DFS GEMS

Alvin Kamara, NO – $8,800 on DraftKings. The way I see this game going is that the Saints get up early and grind out another win, similar to last week and I see Kamara carrying most of the workload on offense. I could easily see him getting 150 total yards from scrimmage and 2 scores this week.

DJ Moore, CAR $5,900 on DraftKings. Like I mention above I think the Saints get the lead here early and if that happens it will open up a good game script for Sam Darnold and this passing attack. I will side with DJ Moore here who saw eight targets in week 1 catching six of them for 80 yards.
