Where do Gillislee, White fall in Week 2 rankings? (2:35)

Field Yates likes Mike Gillislee's matchup against the Saints, while Matthew Berry sides with Mike Clay's ranking of James White as the better option in your fantasy lineup. (2:35)

The New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints enter Sunday’s game seeking their first victories, and most people would probably admit to being shocked -- shocked! -- if the defending Super Bowl champs were to start 0-2. For fantasy purposes, it’s not all that relevant. There will be numbers in this game, and you won’t want to rely on the defenses. The Patriots will certainly move the football, but so will the Saints. Drew Brees threw for 291 yards in Monday’s loss at Minnesota, and he should top that against a Patriots secondary that was shredded by the Chiefs’ Alex Smith.
