• Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 11/27/14 5:47pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: Robinson remains out with an injury that's developed into a quite an issue as he's on the verge of missing a sixth straight game. Meanwhile, the team's other three backs practiced Thursday, leaving Robinson as the forgotten man.

  • Nick Toon - WR
    Posted 11/25/14 3:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon saw the bulk of the snaps in WR Brandin Cooks' (thumb) absence in Week 12 Monday, Nov. 24, although WR Joseph Morgan was the big-play threat, making plays of 67 and 62 yards.

    Huddle Up: Toon did draw five targets to Morgan's one in the passing game and finished with three catches for 42 yards, but he's a deep-league option at best right now.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 11/24/14 7:41pm ET

    The New Orleans Saints have declared RB Khiry Robinson, WR Robert Meachem, DL Brandon Deaderick, LB Kyle Knox, OT Nick Becton, CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste and CB Terrence Frederick inactive for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Robinson will miss a fifth straight game, leaving the RB chores to Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Travaris Cadet, while Meachem won't be part of the Saints' reconfigured WR rotation which is playing its first game without the injured Brandin Cooks.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/22/14 5:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and is probable for Monday night's tilt with the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: Khiry Robinson is out for the game, so Thomas will be the No. 2 back behind Mark Ingram. Ingram will get the majority of snaps but Thomas will see some time on passing downs. He's a flier flex play in deeper PPR leagues this week.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/20/14 6:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20. Thomas has missed the last four games, but he said there's a chance that he plays in Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: The Saints could use a timely return by Thomas as fellow RBs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Travaris Cadet (hamstring) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/18/14 6:25pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Way-too early end to a strong first season for the first-round pick who ranks second on the team in receptions (53), receiving yards and (550) and TD catches (3). Kenny Stills, Marques Colston and Robert Meachem should get more looks in his absence.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/17/14 11:59am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) will miss two to four weeks due to a broken thumb.

    Huddle Up: That's a major kink in the game plan for the struggling Saints. The rookie has been electric in home games and already is a preferred target for Drew Brees.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 11/17/14 2:06pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Nov. 17, and could miss four to six weeks.

    Huddle Up: That means Cooks would return in Week 16 at the earliest. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to keep Cooks around unless they have deep rosters. Kenny Stills should be picked up in all leagues. He'll benefit the most from Cooks being out.

  • Kenny Stills - WR
    Posted 11/17/14 3:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WRs Robert Meachem and Joe Morgan will likely be asked to play more with WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) out for an extended period. WR Kenny Stills is likely to have a much bigger role in the offense, as well.

    Huddle Up: Stills will see the biggest fantasy bump. He should be added in all leagues this week with Cooks likely done for the regular season.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/15/14 12:25am ET

    New Orleans Saints RBs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (arm) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and have been ruled out for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: That'll make four straight games missed for the duo, meaning another bright green light and heavy workload for Mark Ingram on Sunday against the visiting Bengals.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/14/14 12:13am ET

    New Orleans Saints RBs Pierre Thomas (shoulder, rib) and Khiry Robinson (arm) were both absent from practice again Thursday, Nov. 13. Both players are long shots to play in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Thomas did some individual work Wednesday.

    Huddle Up: Hard to believe that both backs are on the verge of missing their fourth straight game. In the meantime, it's been a fantasy boon for the fantasy owners of Mark Ingram who's notched three straight 100-yard rushing games.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/13/14 12:16am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is dealing with a shoulder injury but he'll be good to go against the Bengals on Sunday. Ingram is a RB2 once again this week versus Cincinnati.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/7/14 12:26am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder, ribs) was held out of practice Thursday, Nov. 6, and is questionable for the team's Week 10 game Sunday, Nov. 9.

    Huddle Up: Thomas and fellow RB Khiry Robinson (forearm), who have both missed the Saints' last 2 games, were held out of practice for a second straight day, increasing the likelihood that they'll miss another contest Sunday. See if Friday brings any status changes.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 11/7/14 6:32pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RBs Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and Khiry Robinson (arm) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and have been been ruled out for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Thomas and Robinson will both miss a third straight game, meaning there will be a continued reliance on Mark Ingram, who's 56 total touches over the last 2 games. Travaris Cadet will also be involved in the passing game.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/5/14 9:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.

    Huddle Up: Ingram is in no danger of missing Sunday's game. With Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson still nursing injuries, Ingram is a strong RB2 this week against San Francisco.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/31/14 12:15am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram carried the ball a career-high 30 times for 100 yards and two TDs and added a 10-yard reception Thursday, Oct. 30 in a 28-10 road win over the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Four days after ripping the Packers for 172 yards and a TD on 24 attempts, Ingram became the first Saints' RB to post back-to-back 100-yard rushing performances since Deuce MacAllister in 2006. He now has 6 rushing scores on the season and has reached double-digit fantasy points in 4 of his 5 games on the year.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 10/30/14 7:46pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RBs Khiry Robinson (forearm) and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are both inactive in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday, Oct. 30.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here as Mark Ingram and Travaris Cadet will shoulder the RB duties against the disappointing Carolina defense.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 10/29/14 6:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: As expected, Thomas will miss a second straight game, leaving the Thursday-night RB load to Mark Ingram, Travaris Cadet and, possibly, Khiry Robinson.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE
    Posted 10/28/14 5:18pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited in practice Tuesday, Oct. 28. Graham said he still expects to play.

    Huddle Up: Yeah, Graham will be out there at something less than 100 percent Thursday night in Charlotte, but you pretty much have to roll with him no matter what given his propensity for scoring grabs as he displayed on his 22-yard TD catch in Week 8.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 10/28/14 8:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 28.

    Huddle Up: Robinson figures to miss a second straight game, ensuring another big workload for Mark Ingram, who has earned it in any case with his career-high 172 rushing yards in Week 8.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 10/28/14 8:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 28.

    Huddle Up: Much like teammate Khiry Robinson, it looks like Thomas will miss a second straight game, meaning there will be a continued pass-catching role for Travaris Cadet, who's had a combined 10 receptions for 91 yards over the last 2 games.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/28/14 11:53pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is a little sore after a career-high 24 carries in Week 8 but added that he will be ready to carry a heavy load again in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 30.

    Huddle Up: If given a similar workload -- and he should with Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas expected to be out again -- Ingram should find room to run Thursday night against a Carolina D which surrenders the third most fantasy points to opposing RBs.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/27/14 9:21am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram carried 23 times for a career-high 168 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Ingram benefitted from both Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas being out of the lineup as well as a game in which the Saints took a lead and were able to run clock by running the ball. While Ingram has been effective all season long, once the other Saints backs return it will likely be a frustrating hydra-head of a fantasy backfield.

  • Pierre Thomas - RB
    Posted 10/27/14 8:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) likely would not have been able to participate in practice Monday, Oct. 27 had the team worked out Monday.

    Huddle Up: With the Saints playing on Thursday in Week 9, it's going to be that much harder for Thomas to get back on the field. Meanwhile, Mark Ingram and Tarvaris Cadet were quite effective in shouldering the RB duties Sunday night so there's no need for New Orleans to rush Thomas back before he's ready.

  • Brandin Cooks - WR
    Posted 10/24/14 12:39am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks has been targeted 22 times in just two home games so far this year. He totaled eight catches for 74 yards in Week 3 and nine catches for 56 yards in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Like the rest of the Saints' offense, Cooks is better in the Big Easy, and the early schedule hasn't done them any favors with 4 of their first 6 on the road. That, of course, means that 6 of their final 10 will be at home, starting with Sunday night's game against the Pack.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 10/24/14 6:13pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: With Pierre Thomas also out, the Saints' RB situation is actually quite clear for a change as Mark Ingram should handle the bulk of the carries and Travaris Cadet will be the pass-catching back in a fairly decent matchup against the visiting Packers.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE
    Posted 10/24/14 6:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Graham figures to be out there Sunday night after playing a week ago, and his fantasy owners pretty much have to roll with him and chalk up his pointless Week 7 performance as a circumstantial aberration.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 10/23/14 6:50pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

    Huddle Up: Robinson has missed both of the Saints' practices this week, but the situation figures to gain more clarity Friday.

  • Jimmy Graham - TE
    Posted 10/22/14 6:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: Graham owners were left in a tough spot last Sunday as the TE was well enough to play but clearly not well enough to contribute as he finished without a catch on only 2 targets. Look for signs he's making some health strides this week in practice.

  • Khiry Robinson - RB
    Posted 10/22/14 6:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

    Huddle Up: It's still early in the week, and the Saints just might be playing it cautious with fellow RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) already on the shelf this week. Stay tuned ...
