No. 10 overall pick Josh Rosen is expected to get work with the first-team offense after his debut was sabotaged by incompetent backups. Rosen might not see many snaps with Larry Fitzgerald or David Johnson, but second-round wide receiver Christian Kirk and especially fourth-round running back Chase Edmonds proved plenty capable of making plays in their preseason debuts.

There should be plenty of extra opportunity in the Saints backfield during Mark Ingram’s four-game suspension. Terrance West, Jonathan Williams or Shane Vereen could emerge as the robin to Alvin Kamara’s Batman. Williams could be the early frontrunner after an impressive 4-26-1 rushing line last week. However, 61% of tickets and 85% of money on the under have helped move the total down since opening at 42 points.
