• Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 12/10/18 12:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) may still return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 10. Head coach Sean Payton has been encouraged by his rehabilitation. Ginn cannot be designated to return if teammate OG Josh LeRibeus (ankle) is designated, however.

    Huddle Up: Ginn did nothing to write home about before being hurt, but he would provide the Saints with a needed receiving threat. Pick him up off waivers if you have the roster room and are needy at the position.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 12/9/18 4:39pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 51 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added five grabs for 36 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara split the carries with Mark Ingram and the production was similar, with Kamara doing better in the pass game. The Saints will play another divisional game on the road against the Carolina Panthers on Monday night in Week 15.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 12/9/18 4:35pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added one grab for just one yard.

    Huddle Up: Ingram and Alvin Kamara split the carries down the middle, with Kamara more productive in the pass game. The Saints travel to meet the Panthers on Monday night in Week 15.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 12/9/18 4:24pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 24-of-31 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he ran for a score.

    Huddle Up: Brees has passed for 201 or fewer yards in each of the past three outings, and just one touchdown pass in each of the past two. It's a time of the year fantasy owners needed him not to struggle after such a giant year. He'll try and rebound in Week 15 in Carolina on Monday night.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 12/9/18 4:41pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas registered 11 receptions for 98 yards on 13 targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Thomas just missed out on his fourth 100-yard game, and he has tied a season high with three straight games without a touchdown. He'll try and re-discover the end zone in Week 15 against the Carolina Panthers on Monday night.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 12/7/18 2:26pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Thomas should have a favorable matchup this week against a wounded Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary and can be a No. 1 fantasy receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 12/6/18 12:19pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was participating during the media access portion of practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Thomas appears to be on track for the Week 14 game and may have been receiving a day off Wednesday, Dec. 5. Thomas should be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues if he plays.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 12/6/18 2:03pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Thomas should receive his normal workload this week and will look to bounce back after two disappointing games. He will have a favorable matchup this week and will be a No. 1 receiver in all leagues.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 12/5/18 1:58pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

    Huddle Up: It's much too early to hit the panic button on Thomas just yet. If he misses another practice or two then there will be more cause for concern. In the meantime he has the potential to be the top fantasy wide receiver this week against a porous Tampa Bay Buccaneers pass defense.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/29/18 7:03am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas isn't expected to be shadowed by Dallas Cowboys CB Byron Jones, who has held opposing quarterbacks to a 67.4 passer rating when throwing at him.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was quiet last week, and the matchup isn't stellar for him this week. However, he has emerged as one of the top-flight receivers in fantasy as a WR1.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/29/18 9:28am ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees currently has a 76.4 completion percentage and a 127.3 passer rating. Those numbers would both be single-season records.

    Huddle Up: Brees has been nothing less than spectacular in his 18th NFL season. To boot, he's thrown 29 touchdowns and just two interceptions, making a compelling case for the real MVP and fantasy MVP.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/29/18 8:24pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 18 of his 28 passes for 127 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: It was just the third time this year Brees has failed to throw multiple touchdowns, and it was also just his third interception. If there is a silver lining, he should have a chance to bounce back in Week 14 against a Tampa Bay defense that he beat for 439 yards and three scores in Week 1.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/29/18 8:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 27 yards and gained one yard on two receptions in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: The Cowboys disrupted the entire offense of the Saints, and Ingram was one of the many victims. The good news for his fantasy owners is that he will have RB2 upside in Week 14 against Tampa Bay's terrible defense.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/29/18 8:17pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith failed to haul in his only target in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Whether it was the toe injury he has been dealing with or the lack of production from the offense in general, Smith laid an egg for fantasy owners. He's flashed a ton of upside, but he's likely to remain an all-or-nothing option moving forward.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 11/29/18 8:15pm ET

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) returned against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13 after being evaluated for a concussion. He finished with 11 carries for 36 yards and eight receptions for 36 yards in a 13-10 loss.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't his best game by any means, but Kamara's owners can breathe a sigh of relief that he avoided a potentially serious injury after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Jaylon Smith.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/29/18 8:15pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught five of his eight targets for 40 yards in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: The entire New Orleans Saints offense was out of rhythm in this one, and it led to the second straight quiet outing for Thomas. Fortunately, he should be able to return to form in Week 14 against a horrendous Tampa Bay secondary that he torched for 16 catches and 180 yards earlier this year.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/28/18 12:26pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (toe) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Smith exploded two weeks ago before being inactive on Thanksgiving. Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara remain the Saints' top two receiving options, but Smith's ceiling is in the WR2 range this week.

  • Wil Lutz - PK
    Posted 11/28/18 12:29pm ET

    New Orleans Saints PK Wil Lutz (back) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 28.

    Huddle Up: Start Lutz as you normally would. He's been the top fantasy kicker so far this year.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/27/18 9:31am ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees leads all quarterbacks with a 117.7 passer rating in the red zone this season.

    Huddle Up: Just another reason why Brees is back among the top-five fantasy QBs after a down season in 2017. Really the only concern is that the surging Saints wrap up the NFC's seed early and they throttle down Brees for the stretch run to begin prepping for the postseason.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/27/18 2:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith was limited in practice for a second straight day Tuesday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: Unless Smith is downgraded and misses practice tomorrow he should be able to take the field Thursday night. Assuming he does, he'll be in WR3 territory coming off the injury.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/26/18 1:56pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (toe) practiced on a limited basis Monday, Nov. 26.

    Huddle Up: Smith was inactive last week, so starting off with a limited status is a good start even with a short week. As the Saints' No. 2 wide receiver behind Michael Thomas, Smith possesses low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 upside.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 11/22/18 8:19pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 15 of his 22 passes for 171 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Brees didn't pile up the yards in this one, but he made up for it with four touchdowns. The Saints keep rolling on the offensive side of the ball, and Brees continues to remain a steady QB1.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 11/22/18 8:17pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught four of his six targets for 38 yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Drew Brees spread the ball around in this one, connecting with eight different players. You will run into these games occasionally when Brees is at the helm, but Thomas will deliver for fantasy owners more often than not.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 11/22/18 8:29pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 11 times for 52 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Ingram ran well, but Drew Brees shared the wealth in the passing attack and all the touchdowns went to receivers. He still has RB2 upside, but Ingram hasn't been quite as consistent as he was last season.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 11/22/18 8:22pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 14 times for 89 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: It was a mediocre game by Kamara's standards, and he was a victim of Drew Brees spreading the ball around. Expect more typical numbers moving forward.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/21/18 2:45pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (foot) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 21, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons on Thanksgiving night.

    Huddle Up: Smith blew up in last Sunday's blowout of the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles, posting a career-high 157 yards and a score on 10 grabs. He could have another big game against a leaky Falcons pass defense if he is active.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/20/18 4:26pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (foot) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 20, after not practicing Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: The upgrade is a good sign that Smith will be able to take the field on Thanksgiving Day. After a breakout outing in which he caught 10 passes for 157 yards and a touchdown, he has WR2 potential in a scrumptious matchup versus the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 11/19/18 3:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (foot) was not able to practice Monday, Nov. 19.

    Huddle Up: Smith went off for 10 catches and 157 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets yesterday, so his absence would be a big loss for the Saints this Thanksgiving. If he misses practice over the next couple days then we could be looking at an unfortunate doubtful status.

  • Brandon Marshall - WR
    Posted 11/18/18 7:54am ET

    Confirming a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Marshall will not play in Week 11's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Marshall signed with the Saints less than a week ago, so it will take time for him to get accustomed to the playbook. At this point in his career, he probably has higher name value than fantasy value, so he's not worth rostering outside of deep seasonal leagues.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 11/18/18 9:07am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara could tie Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown for the fourth-fewest games (26) to reach 30 career touchdowns. Kamara enters Week 11 on Sunday, Nov. 18, with 28 touchdowns in 25 career games.

    Huddle Up: Despite the initial fears following Mark Ingram's two-TD return in Week 5, Kamara has remained option 1A in the Big Easy and an elite fantasy back with an average of 21.2 (standard scoring) and 25.5 (PPR) fantasy points in the four games since.
