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.
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.
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.
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.
Saints' QB Teddy Bridgewater passed for 314 yards on 26-of-34 with four touchdowns in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played a strong first half in Friday's preseason loss to the Vikings, going 14-for-19 passing for 134 yards. He threw a touchdown to tight end Dan Arnold. Bridgewater remains the top backup in New Orleans, though he'll see the field less this year than third-string quarterback Taysom Hill, who the Saints use in a variety of ways. Bridgewater's the better pure passer, and if anything happens to Drew Brees, he'll be the first one up. But as long as Brees is active, Bridgewater's not rosterable in re-draft.
