Marques Colston risky even at home
Colston has been better at home than on the road this year with at least seven Fantasy points in a standard league in five of six games. But he only has two touchdowns on the season and two games with double digits in Fantasy points.
The Panthers have only allowed three receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points and score touchdowns this year, and they have limited guys like Victor Cruz, Larry Fitzgerald and Vincent Jackson twice to seven Fantasy points or less.
Don't be surprised if Colston gets to seven points this week, but that would make him a No. 3 Fantasy receiver at best. He's a risky starting option heading into the Fantasy playoffs even though the Saints are playing at home.

Which Saints running back can your trust in Week 14?
Thomas is the better of the two because he has at least seven Fantasy points in a standard league in five of his past six games. At home, Thomas has 37 Fantasy points in his past three games against Buffalo, Dallas and San Francisco. The good thing for Thomas, which helps him in PPR leagues, is he had at least four catches in five games in a row and 10 games this year.
Sproles, meanwhile, only has three games this season with more than six Fantasy points in a standard league. All three of those games have come at home, which is positive, and he does have six games this year with six or more catches, including Week 13 at Seattle.
Only five running backs have reached double digits in Fantasy points against the Panthers this season and just one since Week 7. What could help Thomas and Sproles is four running backs have caught at least five passes against the Panthers. But only four running backs have scored against Carolina all season.
Thomas has more upside based on his workload, but Sproles is still a decent option in PPR leagues because of his catch potential. But both remain risky because of the matchup.

Drew Brees happy to be back home
Brees has at least 24 Fantasy points in five of six home games this season, and he's scored 35 or more points three times in the Superdome. He also has a good history against the Panthers with four games in a row with at least 325 passing yards and 13 total touchdowns and five interceptions over that span.
Now for the bad news. This year's version of the Panthers have not allowed a quarterback to score 20 Fantasy points, and no quarterback has thrown multiple touchdowns, including matchups with Russell Wilson, Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady. But we think Brees at home will be the first to accomplish this feat.
Keep Brees active in all leagues, and we hope he gets back on track after scoring just nine Fantasy points against the Seahawks.
