• Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/18/17 11:14am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead played in only 21-of-71 snaps in a Week 6 victory over the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead hinted last week he would get worked back into the mix slowly and that is exactly what happened. It would seem the lack of playing time was in an effort to allow him to fully recover from his hamstring injury than to further punish him for his three-game PED suspension to begin the season. Either way, expect him to double his snaps in Week 7 against the Green Bay Packers before taking on his usual workload in Week 8. Owners are advised to keep him on the bench one more week.

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Snead didn't play much in his return from a suspension and injury last week. It could take a little more time for him to get back to 100 percent, but he should not be dropped by any means. He can be started as a flex if there are not better plays on your roster, but lower your expectations.

  • Coby Fleener - TE
    Posted 10/17/17 11:33am ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has caught just three passes for 42 yards in his last three games. Furthermore, he was targeted only once in the Saints' 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Fleener is clearly not an integral part of New Orleans' game plan on a week-to-week basis. He scored a touchdown in each of his first two games but has been invisible since then. It might be hard to drop him since he's technically the starting tight end in one of the NFL's best offenses, but you certainly can't start him.

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Even if he plays, he is likely to see a limited number of snaps this afternoon, so he should be avoided unless you have multiple receivers on bye weeks.

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is active for Week 6's game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see a limited number of snaps this afternoon, so he should not be viewed as a great option in any fantasy format.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 6:04pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted three catches for 11 yards on six targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Thomas really laid an egg, which is disappointing considering the score was 52-38. If someone came home and checked the score, they probably thought Thomas was in beast mode, but he was mostly invisible. He'll look to rebound in Week 7 in Green Bay. Despite the egg-laying he remains a must-start fantasy option in most formats.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 6:04pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead posted one catch for 11 yards on three targets in Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Snead finally made his return after a three-game suspension and then a hamstring injury. It wasn't an impressive start. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but for now he is only worth keeping on your roster for depth. Wait for him to knock off the rust in another game or two before relying on him as a starter.

  • Michael Hoomanawanui - TE
    Posted 10/15/17 6:03pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Michael Hoomanawanui posted two grabs for 27 yards and a touchdown on three targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Despite Hoomanawanui finding the end zone he is nothing more than a desperation fantasy option when your primary option has a bye week. The Saints travel to meet the Packers in Week 7.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/15/17 6:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. hauled in four receptions for a team-high 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added a three-yard rush.

    Huddle Up: Ginn's yardage total was his best of the season, and he has now found the end zone in two of the past three games. Despite the decent production, he remains nothing more than a WR4 or flex play in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 7 in Green Bay.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 6:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 10 times for 75 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added four grabs for 12 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: Kamara looked energized in the win, as he now doesn't have a future Hall of Famer in Adrian Peterson breathing down his neck. He is a solid RB3 or flex play, especially in PPR formats, and the clear-cut handcuff to Mark Ingram going forward.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/15/17 6:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 25 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions and he added five receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: It's like a cloud was removed from Ingram's head when Adrian Peterson was shipped to Arizona. While Peterson wasn't cutting into Ingram's time, perhaps he was not performing or was uncomfortable looking over his shoulder at the future Hall of Famer. It was smooth sailing in Week 6, and fantasy owners hope that continues in Week 7 in Green Bay and beyond.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 10/15/17 5:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a great game for Brees, especially with a 52-38 score on the board, but there were three defensive touchdowns from the Saints to prop up their score. Mark Ingram rushed for two scores, so that's why Brees only did what he did. He'll look for better results in Week 7 in Green Bay, but he will be battling Brett Hundley and not Aaron Rodgers. The Saints could use a run-heavy offense if they grab a lead against the inexperienced quarterback.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 6:48am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead said the team is easing him back in the fold this week after missing three games due to suspension, a week for a hamstring injury and the team's bye week. 'Right now, they're throwing me back in there slowly,' Snead said. 'And I think once this week goes by and I'm able to handle what they're giving me, I think my role will grow more and more every week.'

    Huddle Up: Those comments resonate as he appears to be fourth fiddle behind Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn Jr. and Brandon Coleman. Snead should be avoided this week unless you have several players on a bye.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/12/17 3:38pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Snead is being eased into the offense and probably will see limited snaps if he plays this week. Owners may want to avoid Snead this week, but he should have some fantasy value during the second half of the season.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 7:59am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) has recovered from his hamstring injury, according to head coach Sean Payton.

    Huddle Up: It remains to be seen how much of a factor he'll be in the offense. We should have a better gauge after the week of practice, but he could be a flex option against the Detroit Lions.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 10/11/17 2:32pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: This week marks the first time this year that Snead will take the field for an actual game. There's always risk involved in starting anyone who has been out of action for a long time, but Snead deserves at least flex consideration in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair with the Detroit Lions.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 10/10/17 8:50am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: AP has rushed for 2.39 yards per carry the last two seasons. Yes, there were scheme questions, offensive line questions and questions of what he has left. It's pretty clear he has lost a step. However, the Cardinals are desperate, and if Peterson has anything left to give - this is his last chance. Pick him up for depth in deeper leagues, but his value is heavier in non-PPR formats.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 9:56am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas had eight receptions for 89 yards and a touchdown in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Thomas reached the end zone for the second consecutive week and has demonstrated remarkable consistency of late, averaging 88 receiving yards over his last three games. He should be viewed as a WR2 when the Saints return from their bye in Week 6 versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 10/1/17 9:52am ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 29-for-41 for 268 passing yards in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

    Huddle Up: Even though Brees' numbers were not eye-popping, it is important to note that he recovered nicely from a slow start on offense, with the Saints only able to score a field goal in the first half. New Orleans has a bye next week but Brees should continue to be viewed as a QB1 in all fantasy formats when they return to action versus the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 9:46am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara had 10 receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins. He added 25 rushing yards on five carries.

    Huddle Up: Kamara possesses a great deal of upside and should be stashed in keeper and dynasty fantasy leagues. The 22-year-old rookie has 20 receptions through the first four games of his career, making him a viable flex option for PPR formats. New Orleans has a bye in Week 5, but Kamara possesses a somewhat favorable matchup versus the Detroit Lions for Week 6.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/1/17 10:06am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed for 45 yards on 14 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4. He also caught four passes for 17 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Ingram has been receiving a majority of the carries during games but is sharing time with Alvin Kamara. He will be off next week but could be a flex option against the Detroit Lions in Week 6 since he will be involved in the run and pass game.

  • Coby Fleener - TE
    Posted 10/1/17 10:25am ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener caught two passes for 21 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Fleener has not been a big factor in the passing game this season and has posted more than 35 yards in only one game. He could be a No. 2 tight end for owners but should not be a starting option most weeks.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/1/17 10:12am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught two passes for 25 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Ginn has been in the starting lineup since the start of the season but has only caught four passes in the last two games. He will continue to be a deep threat for Saints but could lose some playing time with Willie Snead coming back. Ginn will only be a flex option against favorable matchups.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 9/29/17 6:10am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead took part in team drills Friday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Snead did individual work Wednesday and Thursday, and it seems far-fetched to expect him to be a big factor in the gameplan against the Miami Dolphins. He'll be a better flex option after next week's bye.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/29/17 6:10am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Peterson hasn't had a big enough role on the team to consider in fantasy against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/29/17 4:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been receiving around 10 touches over the last two games and likely will have a similar workload against the Miami Dolphins. He should be avoided in most leagues because he has not been very productive in new role.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 9/29/17 4:10pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Snead will play in Week 4. He has missed the first three games, so he may be eased back into the lineup. Snead will be a risky option since it would be his 2017 debut, so owners may want to see him in a game before placing him in their lineups.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 9/28/17 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead practiced on an adjacent field from the team portions Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Snead doesn't appear to be a big part of the gameplan this week, and it might be best to hold off starting him until after their Week 5 bye.

  • Adrian Peterson - RB
    Posted 9/28/17 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was absent from practice during the portion open to the media Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value has dwindled to the point that he's probably not worth a flex play against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Willie Snead - WR
    Posted 9/27/17 5:56am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead's workload in Week 4 will be determined after head coach Sean Payton sees how Snead handles this week of practice, Payton said.

    Huddle Up: Snead can be a WR2 possibility, but he'll probably need until after their Week 5 bye to hit full speed. He's a flex possibility against the Miami Dolphins this week, but there are safer options.
