Dalton has looked good but you don't sit Brees.

We don't know if Dalton is for real or just enjoying a hot streak. Brees will produce.

Brees also has Sproles but I agree that Dalton has a greater number of talented targets to work with.

I'm a Dalton owner but will not start him over Cam Newton as the total package still outweighs Dalton's couple of high weeks.
Keep in mind that Dalton only broke the 300 yard mark for the first time a couple weeks ago.

Green Bay's Pass D is ranked #1 at the moment...they've played SF (A. Smith), CHI (Cutler) and SEA (R. Wilson)...Cutler should've had a better week but Smith and Wilson aren't putting up big #s against anybody. That #1 pass D ranking is a little misleading.

The Jags only gave up 195 yards to Matt Schaud in Week 2 but did give up 270 to Ponder in Week 1 and 300+ to Luck in Week 3 but only gave up 2 total passing TDs to those 3 combined while GB has gave up 2 to Smith, 1 to Cutler and 2 to Wilson for a total of 5 TDs.

You have two good options here but I like Brees overall

As a Dalton owner, it pains me to say, that you don't sit Brees. Dalton got it going in recent years, but Brees has had it going for years
