Berry: Darnold a quality fantasy replacement for Mahomes (1:52)

Matthew Berry sees Sam Darnold as a good replacement if you have Patrick Mahomes on your fantasy roster. (1:52)

Give New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater loads of credit for replacing an injured Drew Brees and leading his team to victory in every single one of his starts, including Sunday's impressive road win against the defensively minded Chicago Bears. That said, things seem likely to change in Week 8. Brees, who needed surgery on his right (throwing) thumb for a ligament tear suffered in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams, could get clearance to play as soon as Monday, with an appealing home meeting against Kyler Murray and the underwhelming Arizona Cardinals defense on tap in Week 8.
