He'll visit the Rams in Week 15.
Junior Galette racks up three sacks
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (12/9/13) Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette sacked Cam Newton three times in the win over the Panthers, giving him nine sacks this year. Galette benefitted from tight coverage that gave him extra time to get to Newton.
He finished with six tackles and is up to 34 stops this season. Galette visits the Rams in Week 15.
Saints DST brings the heat

The Saints were unable to force a turnover, but they held the Panthers to 239 total yards and 16 first downs. New Orleans has a chance to repeat that success Week 15 when it visits struggling St. Louis.
Saints DST a risky option in Week 14
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (12/7/13) The Saints DST has been a great Fantasy option this season, but the matchup in Week 14 against the Panthers is tough. We'd avoid the Saints DST as a starting option this week.
The Saints have scored at least 11 Fantasy points in a standard league in all six home games, which is impressive. But they do have four games this season with single digits in points, and the Panthers are a tough opponent.
Only five DST options have reached double digits in Fantasy points against the Panthers and just one in the past three weeks. Cam Newton should be able to make plays against the Saints, and we'd only consider the Saints DST a starting option in deeper formats.
