The New Orleans Saints allowed 427 yards to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 under defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Last year, the Saints allowed 500-plus yards in two games and 400-plus yards in six contests. Ryan's defenses have finished in the top 10 just twice since 2004 and 19th or worse eight times.
Fantasy Tip: Not only is the Saints defense bad this year, but they are already dealing with several key injuries in their secondary that won't help matters. Stacking a quarterback-wide receiver duo of the Saints' opponent on a weekly basis might not be a bad strategy this year on FantasyScore.
