Saints' Marshon Lattimore (ankle) expected to play against Falcons
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore is expected to play Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons.
Lattimore's missed the last two games with an ankle injury, but he's finally returned to practice and figures to start on Thursday night. He will step back in for replacement P.J. Williams as he bolsters the Saints' defense and stands a tough matchup for Falcons wideout Julio Jones.
In this week's matchup, our models project Lattimore for 2.1 tackles, 0.5 pass defenses and 0.2 interceptions. The Saints' projected 5.1 FanDuel points still rank outside the top-20 options on the Week 14 slate.
