2019 RTSports Outlook

Bridgewater was dealt to the Saints before the start of the season and served as their top backup last year. He got one start, starting the last game of the year. He was just alright in the game, going 14-of-22 for 118 yards and a touchdown with an interception. It was just great seeing him back on the field and playing after suffering a horrific leg injury in 2016. Bridgewater isn't quite back to his old self but close. He will remain the top backup for the Saints this year and hopes to take over as the starter once Drew Brees retires. Bridgewater seemed on the verge of big things before suffering his injury. When healthy and playing, Bridgewater is a top competitor and winner. He is a smart quarterback and has a knack for making the big play. He is a dual threat, having 190-plus rushing yards each of his first two seasons in the league. He doesn't have a great arm and struggles some with the deep ball but excels with the quick hitters and shorter throws.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Bridgewater remains a question mark. He seems healthy but it still isn't known what he can do over a full season in a starting role. For now, he remains the backup, waiting for Brees to hang it up.

Player Notes
Oct 20 9:10pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater threw for 281 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' 36-25 victory over the Chicago Bears. On the one hand, Bridgewater completed just 60.5 percent of his passes, his second-lowest mark of the season. Fortunately, the 26-year-old averaged his second-highest yards per attempt mark of the season, 7.4, and was aggressive looking downfield. The day could have been even better for the sixth-year veteran had wide receiver Ted Ginn hauled in a deep pass in the end zone. Still, it was a good sign that Bridgewater had some success against a tough defense, though he may not have fantasy value moving forward. Starter Drew Brees (thumb) has an outside chance to play in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Oct 17 3:00pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is in for a rough Week 7 against the Chicago Bears. Except for his four touchdown passes against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5, Bridgewater has been an average fantasy quarterback. Through six weeks, Bridgewater has averaged just 217.8 yards per game with 6.9 yards per attempt and seven touchdowns. He'll take on a Bears Defense that ranks fifth in points allowed to opposing quarterbacks. Bridgewater is a low-end QB2 for this contest and won't have fantasy value for long with starter Drew Brees' return coming soon.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater managed his team to a 13-6 victory in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bridgewater went 24-for-36 for 240 yards and a touchdown, averaging just 6.7 yards per attempt. Unfortunately for the sixth-year veteran, a 42-yard touchdown pass to Latavius Murray was brought back by a penalty. Bridgewater went over 30 pass attempts for the third consecutive game but couldn't put together a strong fantasy performance. With starter Drew Brees' return around the corner and a Week 7 matchup with the Chicago Bears looming, Bridgewater is a QB2 moving forward.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 24-for-36 for 240 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater has been solid since taking over the starting job and probably will receive at least one more start before Drew Brees returns to the lineup. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense next week and probably would only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 4:40pm ET

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey (back), who is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Saints after being limited in practice all week, is not expected to play on Sunday. It would be Ramsey's third straight missed game and hurt Jacksonville's chances of slowing down Saints No. 1 receiver Michael Thomas. If Ramsey is inactive, expect cornerback A.J. Bouye to cover Thomas. Jacksonville's defense/special teams is a low-end streaming option this week against Teddy Bridgewater and the Saints.

From RotoBaller

Oct 10 5:00pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater gets a bit of a tougher matchup in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Bridgewater is coming off his best game as the Saints starter, in which he averaged a season-high 9.24 yards per attempt and tossed four touchdown passes. Unfortunately, he's still only averaging 7.0 yards per attempt on the season, which would have him ranking in the bottom 10 of starting quarterbacks. Despite drawing a beatable Jaguars secondary that might be without star cornerback Jalen Ramsey (back), Bridgewater is a QB2 for this game. He's simply too risky to trust and with Drew Brees' return seemingly around the corner, he won't have fantasy value for too much longer.

From RotoBaller

Oct 8 1:00pm ET

New Orleans Saints' QB Teddy Bridgewater scored an impressive 31.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 5 win against the Buccaneers. Bridgewater threw for 314 yards on 26-of-34 with four touchdowns and one interception. It's the 1st time this season Bridgewater scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.

Oct 6 4:30pm ET

Saints' QB Teddy Bridgewater passed for 314 yards on 26-of-34 with four touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.

Oct 5 9:00pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has averaged 29 pass attempts per game, but has only reached 6.13 yards per attempt. He has resorted to check-downs and short passes, severely limiting his fantasy potential. However, Bridgewater draws a good Week 5 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have given up the 11th-most points to opposing quarterbacks. Game script also bodes well for Bridgewater in this one, as the Bucs come into the game ranked fourth in the league in scoring. Despite these positives, Bridgewater's past results this year suggest he'll be nothing more than a QB2 in this contest.

From RotoBaller

Sep 30 1:23am ET

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater connected on 23 of his 30 passing attempts for 193 yards and an interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Spin: After two weeks it's pretty clear the Saints are trying to follow the same script that the 2014/15 Vikings used with Bridgewater: run the ball, play good defense and don't make major mistakes. Unless they fall into a deep hole it seems unlikely the Saints will ask more out of Bridgewater, and that leaves him basically bereft of fantasy appeal.

From TheHuddle

Sep 29 11:50pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played well in the 12-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. Bridgewater was 23 of 30 with 195 passing yards and one interception in the victory. He didn't have any deep flashy passes, but he managed the game well for the Saints. It wasn't a strong performance in terms of fantasy production, but that should change next week. Bridgewater has a favorable matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5. He should be considered in the QB2 conversation for that one.

From RotoBaller

Sep 27 8:30pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will make his second consecutive start in Week 4 when he takes on the Dallas Cowboys at home. Bridgewater operated as a game-manager in Week 3's game, completing 19-of-27 passes for just 177 yards and two touchdowns. Bridgewater is averaging just 6.00 yards per attempt since taking over for the injured Drew Brees, which caps his fantasy upside considerably. Dallas has been tough against opposing passing games, allowing the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to enemy quarterbacks. Treat Bridgewater as a low-end QB2 for Week 4's game.

From RotoBaller

Sep 23 3:00pm ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater finished with 177 yards and two touchdowns on 19-for-27 passing in the win over the Seahawks on Sunday. The Stellar play of the Saints' offensive line kept pressure off of the 26-year-old, allowing Bridgewater to connect with Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas throughout the contest while walking away with a 70 percent completion percentage. With rumblings of Taysom Hill being involved to some degree coming into this one, Bridgewater made his case to remain the starter moving forward. Bridgewater isn't as mobile as he used to be, but with so many weapons at his disposal on the offensive end of the ball, he could be a useful starter in deeper fantasy leagues until Drew Brees (hand) is able to return.

From RotoBaller

Sep 23 12:43am ET

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 19-of-27 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks. He added three carries for 12 yards.

Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater effectively managed the game with Alvin Kamara doing the heavy lifting on offense and the defense/special teams scoring two touchdowns. Somewhat surprisingly, he ceded very few snaps to Taysom Hill in his first start in place of Drew Brees. Bridgewater figures to receive a stiffer test and will be no better than a middling QB2 option next week at home against Dallas Cowboys.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 9:40am ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will start Sunday's Week 3 contest against the Seattle Seahawks, though the team intends to use Taysom Hill at times during the game. Heading into the weekend, head coach Sean Payton hadn't committed to a starter, though it was looking more and more like it'd be Bridgewater. This isn't an easy matchup and Bridgewater didn't set the world on fire when he came in as an injury replacement for Drew Brees last week, so it's fair to think of him as just a mid-tier QB2 despite the weapons around him.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 8:23am ET

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater is expected to get the starting nod for Week 3's game against the Seattle Seahawks, although QB Taysom Hill is likely to see some action during the game as well.

Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater is the better bet this week as far as streaming fantasy options go, while the bulk of Hill's action is likely to come in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

From TheHuddle

Sep 18 10:53pm ET

New Orleans Saints QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill will both play in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, with head coach Sean Payton declining to name a starter Wednesday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater is likely to play more snaps, with Hill subbing in for his regular assortment of Wildcat formation plays, especially in short-yardage situations and plays near the goal line. For those looking for a streaming option in fantasy, Bridgewater is certainly the better bet.

From TheHuddle

Sep 16 11:50am ET

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater took over for Drew Brees, who prematurely exited after injuring his thumb, during the loss to the Rams and finished with 165 yards on 17-for-30 passing. With Brees heading for surgery and expected to be out for around six weeks, the 26-year-old will start for the foreseeable future. Despite his lack of playing time over the years, Bridgewater will have an abundance of options at his disposal while serving as the primary signal-caller, making him an efficient option for those who are forced to weather the storm of Brees absence in the weeks ahead.

From RotoBaller

Sep 16 12:53am ET

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 17 of 30 passes for 165 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 15. Bridgewater replaced QB Drew Brees (hand) in the first quarter.

Fantasy Spin: Bridgewater had his moments, but every positive play he made seemed to be erased by a penalty. It's never easy to take over a game like that, so don't read too much into his struggles. If Brees is set to miss significant time, Bridgewater would be worth considering if your QB situation is poor.

From TheHuddle

Sep 15 5:03pm ET

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) was removed from the Week 2 game against the Los Angeles Rams in the first quarter due to a thumb injury. QB Teddy Bridgewater replaced him. Brees has not been ruled out to return, per the sideline report.

Fantasy Spin: Brees had his thumb wrapped on the sideline, and it's uncertain if he will be able to return or not. The Saints haven't yet ruled him out or offered an update. More on it when we know it.
