Saints own huge lead in NFC South

The New Orleans Saints already own a dominating lead in the NFC South with a 5-0 record. Carolina is in a distant second at 1-3 (they were on bye in Week 4). Both Tampa Bay and Atlanta are 1-4. At this time last season, the Saints and Falcons held the same record, except the records were flipped. New Orleans is the only remaining undefeated team in the NFC.

Fantasy Analysis:

The next best team in the NFC is Seattle at 4-1. All the remaining teams have at least two losses. The Saints are enjoying a big boot on defense. They aren't dominant, but they are improved. Couple that with the predictably explosive offense led by Drew Brees @drewbrees, Darren Sproles @DarrenSproles and Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham, and the Saints are back in the driver's seat on the NFC. Upcoming games against San Francisco, Seattle and St. Louis will have big playoff implications.

If Darren Sproles is so dominant, why did they give Pierre Thomas 27 touches against the Bears and Sproles very few?

That's how the Saints favorites. Keeps the other defenses on their toes. Sproles KILLED it the week before. RB1 in PPR!
