Week 17 at New Orleans Saints
Taylor Heinicke had 274 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons last week, but he also threw three interceptions. Heinicke will get another opportunity to show what he has against the Saints this week, but New Orleans is better on defense than the Falcons and with such inexperience, it’s hard to recommend him in any lineups, especially in what will be a championship week for any owners still playing for something. He should stay on waivers.
Heinicke was placed on IR, meaning either Garrett Gilbert or Kyle Allen will be starting the final game of the season. Regardless of who takes snaps, fantasy owners should stay away.
