    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is expected to play in Week 13's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Ingram returned to practice as a limited participant Friday, Dec. 2, and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is expected to split playing time with Tim Hightower this afternoon but is still worthy of consideration as a high-upside RB2.

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) will play in Week 13's game against the Detroit Lions, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is coming off of a Week 12 performance where he accumulated 146 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards and two combined touchdowns versus the Los Angeles Rams. Although he is slated to split carries with Tim Hightower this week, he should be viewed as a solid RB2 option in all fantasy formats.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 12/4/16 2:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw 31-of-44 for 326 yards but was intercepted three times in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was the first time in 60 home games for the Saints that Brees did not throw a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Brees is just like any other quarterback in the NFL, due for a lackluster game now and then. This may have been the game. His overall stats were good (three-fourths of his passes completed), but the interceptions hurt. Brees is still a strong QB1 due to his yardage and touchdown numbers.

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran seven times for 37 yards Sunday, Dec. 4, in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was hampered by an injured toe for part of the game, and even then he didn't look good at all against a strong Lions defense. You may want to check the injury reports to see how Ingram will fare early in the week.

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) participated in the open portion of practice Friday, Dec. 2, after not practicing earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: It bodes well for the possibility he will suit up Week 13 against the Detroit Lions, although Tim Hightower is a good bet to receive more touches given the nature of Ingram's injury. Ingram is a high-upside RB2 in what has quickly become a very good rushing attack, while Hightower is more a lower-end RB2 option.

    Posted 12/2/16 4:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Ingram may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He likely will share snaps with Tim Hightower if he plays in the game but can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

    Posted 12/1/16 2:09pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) missed his second straight practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Ingram's availability is starting to get worrisome. If he's able to practice tomorrow it would be a sigh of relief, but be prepared to fire up Tim Hightower incase Ingram can't take the field.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/30/16 2:21pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: It's early in the week, so don't go into panic mode just yet. He has a few more days to practice, and even if he's limited that will be a good sign for him being able to play this weekend. If he cannot play then Tim Hightower would immediately become one of the best sleeper starts and value plays for Week 13.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/29/16 12:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had been averaging 94 yards and one touchdown per game at home this season before last week's debacle.

    Huddle Up: Don't be surprised to see Drew Brees and the Saints make a concerted effort to get Cooks the ball in Week 13. It might be easy to want to bench him this week after not being targeted last week, but the Saints and Detroit Lions could be involved in a shootout. You won't want Cooks on your bench if that occurs.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/28/16 12:29pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not see a single target in a Week 12 rout of the Los Angeles Rams - a fact head coach Sean Payton suggested was 'the result of some coverages'. 'There were certainly calls with his name and number on it, and periodically once in a while that (being held without a target) can happen,' Payton said.

    Huddle Up: There's no question the emergence of rookie Michael Thomas has played a role in it, but Cooks has been extremely hit-or-miss this season and required touchdowns to save his fantasy day. The third-year wideout has topped five catches and/or 66 yards only once since Week 6, falling below his season yards-per-catch average of 14.4 five times over that six-game span. As a result, Cooks is quickly fading into low-end WR2 territory.

    Posted 11/27/16 7:11am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) is expected to play in Week 12's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He's worth considering as a low-end RB2 or flex option in the majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 8:48am ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) is active for Week 12's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is expected to split the carries with Tim Hightower in Sunday's game. Both players are worthy of consideration as RB2 or flex options in the majority of fantasy formats.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram ran 14 times for 146 yards, including two touchdown runs of 61 and 10 yards, in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was knocked out in the team's last game against the Carolina Panthers, so to see him snap back after 10 days is very encouraging. He added a third touchdown on a 21-yard pass completion from Drew Brees, so Ingram can definitely be used in flex status as a RB/WR.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/27/16 2:25pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw for four touchdowns and 310 yards on 28-of-36 passing in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Brees hasn't fallen below 4,000 passing yards since 2005, and he's just shy of 3,600 yards now so Brees should reach that mark barring injury. Brees is a strong QB1 with 30 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.

  • Tim Hightower - RB
    Posted 11/27/16 3:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to RB Tim Hightower in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Snead caught five passes for 38 yards, so if it hadn't been for that razzle-dazzle touchdown pass Snead would have had a bad day. Don't count on this play happening too much more, but Snead is ordinarily a decent threat for fantasy points. Snead is one of Drew Brees' many targets, so his numbers may go up and down.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 2:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught nine passes for 108 yards and a pair of touchdowns in a 49-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: The Ohio State rookie wideout is having one heck of a first year in the NFL. Thomas has seven touchdown catches and close to 800 yards through 11 games, which could put him in contention for postseason awards. Thomas is a decent WR2 or WR3 play on your fantasy roster, as he is finding his way through a crowded Saints receiving game.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/27/16 9:18pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not have any receptions and he was not targeted once in the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: There was no word on whether Cooks suffered some kind of injury, or if he was simply blanketed by the Rams causing Drew Brees to have to look elsewhere. Either way, it was an ugly goose egg of his legion of fantasy owners in a key week of action.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/25/16 1:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) has been listed as questionable for Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is fully expected to play after practicing all week, but he has yet to pass the concussion protocol. Tim Hightower would be in line for 20 touches and a very good RB2 if Ingram is forced to miss the contest, but both should be considered low-end RB2 options at best if the former Heisman Trophy winner suits up.

    Posted 11/25/16 4:06pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 25, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Ingram will have to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He would share work with Tim Hightower if he is active for the game and could be a low-end No. 2 or a flex option in most leagues.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/25/16 8:55pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas' growth since the start of the season has been 'unbelievable,' according to QB Drew Brees, and Brees said they have been able to open up the playbook for Thomas.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has been the most consistent receiver for Saints, and he should be a high-end WR3 against the Rams in Week 12.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/24/16 8:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Ingram has said he will play in Week 12, but he has to clear concussion protocol. If he suits up, he is a flex candidate against the Rams.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/23/16 7:10am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) will practice Wednesday, Nov. 23, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was expected to be fine this week, and such appears to be true. The Los Angeles Rams have been among the best against opposing RBs the last five weeks, though, and Ingram is a suspect flex play with Tim Hightower sharing the load so well.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/23/16 5:19pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Ingram will have to pass all of his concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so owners should check on his status later in the week. Ingram could be a flex option in deeper leagues if he is active because he probably will share time with Tim Hightower.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/23/16 7:53pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) said Wednesday, Nov. 23, that he will play in the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams, although he remains in the concussion protocol after being knocked out of the Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is still a question mark for Week 12, and the matchup isn't terribly favorable. If Ingram cannot go it will be Tim Hightower picking up the slack. For fantasy purposes, avoid Ingram until he can officially return and practice in full.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/19/16 5:53pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas said he is focused on protecting the ball better after losing a pair of fumbles in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Thomas continues to be a reliable option for Drew Brees, and he should be no worse than a high-end WR3 going forward.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/18/16 6:27pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) should be 'fine' for Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams, according to head coach Sean Payton, and Payton said he wasn't sure if Ingram was officially diagnosed with a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Ingram may still have to clear concussion protocol depending on the diagnosis, but regardless, it sounds like he should be ready for Week 12. He is a low-end RB2 with Tim Hightower eating into his touches.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/17/16 7:40pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (undisclosed) was helped off the field by trainers against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Stay tuned for an update on Ingram's status. If he misses any time, Tim Hightower would likely assume the lead back role and become a solid RB2.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/17/16 7:51pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion) was taken to the locker room and is being evaluated for the concussion against the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen if Ingram can return, but on the plus side, it shouldn't be an injury that keeps him out for an extended period of time.

  • Tim Hightower - RB
    Posted 11/17/16 9:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower finished with 12 carries for 69 yards and eight catches for 57 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Hightower had the backfield to himself after Mark Ingram left with a possible concussion. If Ingram is forced to miss more time, Hightower would immediately become a RB2 in all formats.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/17/16 9:33pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks finished with seven catches for 42 yards and two carries for seven yards in a 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: It was an odd game for the speedy receiver, who had one of his worst outputs in terms of yards but tied his season high in catches. Expect a better line when the Saints take on the Rams in Week 12.
