New Orleans Saints DFS Spin

Chris Olave hauled in five of nine targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 13-0 loss to the 49ers. New Orleans' offense sputtered as a whole, but Olave was able to produce against a tough defense. The standout rookie could have had a bigger game had his quarterback not struggled, as he almost made two circus catches on poorly-thrown balls that would have resulted in an additional 30-plus yards and a touchdown. It was still a productive fantasy line from the 22-year-old, who now boasts a 56/822/3 receiving line through 11 contests. Olave remains the Saints' clear No. 1 wideout heading into next Monday's pivotal division matchup against the Bucs.

Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin

Tom Brady completed 29 of 43 passes for 246 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Buccaneers' 23-17 overtime loss to the Browns on Sunday. He also rushed once for two yards. Brady's final numbers were perfectly adequate from a fantasy perspective, but he repeatedly failed to move the Buccaneers late in regulation and overtime, leading to the team's sixth loss of the campaign. Brady took three sacks and was unofficially hit on another three occasions, and Tampa Bay was forced to punt on six of its last seven possessions, including overtime, with the exception of the final drive of regulation that culminated in a Hail Mary attempt. Brady did record touchdown passes to Chris Godwin and Ko Kieft of 10 and five yards, respectively, making it two straight games with multiple scoring tosses for the future Hall of Famer. Brady will aim for a much more efficient outing from a scoring perspective in a Week 13 Monday night home matchup against the division-rival Saints.
