• Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 10/21/18 7:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 212 yards and two touchdowns in a 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7, becoming the fourth quarterback to reach 500 career passing touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Brees has thrown multiple touchdowns in five of his six games this year, including both games since Mark Ingram has returned. He might not be an elite fantasy option at the position anymore, but he is still a reliable QB1.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 7:46pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 17 times for 64 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Kamara had just nine touches in Mark Ingram's first game back from suspension, but he was back to his normal workload against Baltimore. Kamara owners can breath a sigh of relief.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 10/21/18 8:14pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught seven of his nine targets for 69 yards and a touchdown, his first since Week 2, in a 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Thomas has cooled a bit after a hot start, but he always packs WR1 upside as the go-to target for Drew Brees.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/21/18 8:00pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 12 times for 32 yards and caught two passes for 10 yards in a 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: After scoring twice in his return from a suspension, Ingram took a backseat to Alvin Kamara in this one. His role in the offense this year still isn't exactly clear, but even if Kamara is given more touches, RB2 numbers could still be obtainable for Ingram.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/20/18 10:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery after dealing with some inflammation in the knee. Head coach Sean Payton said Ginn could return later this season.

    Huddle Up: Tre'Quan Smith and Cameron Meredith should receive more targets while Ginn is sidelined. Both receivers should be owned and could be flex options in favorable matchups.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/19/18 7:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith is expected to see a larger role after WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, and Smith said he is 'ready for the opportunity.'

    Huddle Up: Smith was able to show that he can be a threat down the field when he caught three passes for 111 and two touchdowns against the Washington Redskins in Week 5. He will be a boom-or-bust flex option against the Ravens in Week 7.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 2:21pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 18, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cameron Meredith and Tre'Quan Smith probably will receive more targets in the passing game with Ginn sidelined. Both players should be owned in leagues because of the Saints offensive scheme and could be flex options against favorable matchups.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR
    Posted 10/18/18 2:44pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Meredith may receive more targets in the passing game with Ted Ginn Jr. sidelined. He is coming off a solid Week 5 performance but is facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense this week. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 4:12pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Meredith caught five passes for 71 yards in his last game and could have a bigger role if Ted Ginn Jr. is not able to play. He will have a tough matchup in Week 7 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/17/18 4:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Ginn's status later in the week. He has posted decent numbers so far this season, He would be facing a tough Baltimore Ravens defense if he plays and could be benched because of his uncertain status.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/15/18 9:07am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's nine offensive touches in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins were a byproduct of the team's several explosive plays in that game and not a reduced role, according to head coach Sean Payton, who expects more balance between Kamara and Mark Ingram going forward.

    Huddle Up: Kamara's reduced role in Week 5 sent quite a few owners into a bit of a panic, but the expectation moving forward should be that he sees a few more touches in every game than Ingram. The second-year back should have little issue performing at an RB1 level the rest of the way, so owners should leave him locked into lineups for the remainder of the season.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR
    Posted 10/13/18 6:20pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) said 'every week has been an improvement' as he returns from knee surgery, and he is just trying to make the most of the opportunities when they arise.

    Huddle Up: Meredith saw a season-high in catches, targets and yards against the Washington Redskins in Week 5 with Ted Ginn out of action, and his best could be yet to come as he continues his recovery. He's someone to keep an eye on if you need help at receiver.

  • Drew Brees - QB
    Posted 10/8/18 8:01pm ET

    New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 26-of-29 passes for 363 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8, and he became the No. 1 quarterback in NFL history in terms of career passing yardage.

    Huddle Up: Brees continues to get it done at a high level, and he misfired on just three of his attempts on a record night. He even completed a pass to himself in the game on a deflection. He can join Tom Brady, Brett Favre and Peyton Manning in the 500 touchdown club in Baltimore next week with one more TD pass.

  • Tre'Quan Smith - WR
    Posted 10/8/18 8:33pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith rolled up three receptions for 111 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Sean Payton finally kicked off the training wheels and let Smith show what he can do, and he showed off his speed. His 62-yard touchdown was the score which sent Drew Brees over the hump for the NFL's all-time passing yardage record. Smith will be a hot property off of the waiver wire this week, and it's hard to imagine Smith falling back behind Ted Ginn when he returns from injury.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/8/18 8:30pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed six times for 24 yards in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8 and he added three receptions for 15 yards on four targets.

    Huddle Up: That's not exactly what Kamara's fantasy owners were expecting, especially on a night when the Saints dropped 43 points on the Redskins. The return of Mark Ingram from a four-game suspension was expected to take some touches away from Kamara, but Ingram had two scores and a total of 18 touches while Kamara took a backseat and was unproductive when in there. Fantasy owners of Kamara hope it's just a one-game thing. He'll look to bounce back in Baltimore in Week 6.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/8/18 8:25pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 16 times for 53 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8. He also had two receptions for 20 yards.

    Huddle Up: Ingram was back after a four-game suspension for PEDs, and he didn't exhibit any signs of rust whatsoever. His return limited Alvin Kamara to six rushes and a total of nine touches, which can't make his fantasy owners happy on a night when the Saints threw up 43 points. Ingram is a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens.

  • Josh Hill - TE
    Posted 10/8/18 8:44pm ET

    New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill finished with two receptions, 24 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Hill didn't have as many catches or yards as Benjamin Watson (4-30-0), but he was the guy who was able to find the end zone. Both players are only worth considering as very low-end TE2 options in the very deepest of fantasy leagues. The Saints travel to meet the Ravens in Week 7 after the bye.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 10/8/18 8:36pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted four receptions for 74 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Thomas was overshadowed by Tre'Quan Smith (3-111-2) in this one, and Cameron Meredith was also busier (5-71-0) with Ted Ginn sidelined. As such, Thomas and his fantasy owners might be disappointed that he didn't have a bigger night in a game which saw the Saints go for 43 points. Thomas will look for bigger numbers in Baltimore in Week 7.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/6/18 12:49pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) did not practice Saturday, Oct. 6 and he has been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: With Ginn sidelined, Cameron Meredith might slide up to start alongside Michael Thomas with Tre'Quan Smith and Austin Carr perhaps seeing more targets as well.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR
    Posted 10/6/18 12:52pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited in practice Saturday, Oct. 6, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 5 game with the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Meredith might draw the start in place of the injured Ted Ginn, so he might be a decent streaming option for those dealing with byes or injury issues.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/6/18 1:11pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Saturday, Oct. 6, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 5 game against the Washington Redskins on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Kamara faces a tough matchup on the ground, as Washington ranks seventh in the NFL in rushing defense allowing just 90.7 yards per game with two touchdowns. Of course, Kamara is also a threat through the air, and with Ted Ginn Jr. sidelined, Kamara could see even more targets on Monday.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/6/18 1:51pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram was officially activated to the 53-man roster Saturday, Oct. 6 and the team cut RB Mike Gillislee to make room.

    Huddle Up: Ingram served as four-game suspension without pay for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He will return to give New Orleans one of the best one-two punches in the NFL. Treat Ingram as an RB3 or flex fantasy forward with the potential for more as he knocks off the rust.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 10/6/18 10:33pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara and WR Michael Thomas are tied for the league lead with 10 receptions inside the 20 - three more than any other player.

    Huddle Up: Only 21 players across the league had 10 or more catches inside the red zone last year, so the fact teammates are at that mark after four games speaks to how proficient and pass-heavy the Saints have been so far. It's also a big reason why both players rank the top their respective positions in PPR leagues. While Mark Ingram's return figures to curb how active they have been near the end zone up to this point, both players could easily hold their current spots atop the fantasy leaderboard all season long.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/4/18 4:22pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: This is just the Saints managing Kamara's reps during the week, as the former Tennessee product should be perfectly fine for the team's upcoming Monday Night Football matchup at home opposite the Redskins. Even with Mark Ingram coming back from suspension, Kamara will remain an obvious RB1.

  • Cameron Meredith - WR
    Posted 10/4/18 4:16pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: This appears to be the same knee issue Meredith dealt with going into last week's contest. He ultimately played and enjoyed his best outing thus far as a Saint, hauling in three of four targets for 32 yards. Meredith has the potential to be a regular force in New Orleans' potent offense but owners must monitor his health first throughout the week.

  • Ted Ginn Jr. - WR
    Posted 10/4/18 4:30pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) was absent from practice on Thursday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: The veteran Ginn was just being rested here as the club works to manage his reps. He'll be available for New Orleans' home date with the Redskins on Monday Night Football this week, but he's someone to really only consider deploying in the deepest leagues. In his last game, Ginn failed to haul in any of his three targets.

  • Mark Ingram - RB
    Posted 10/2/18 10:55am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is back after serving a four-game suspension to open the season. 'We'll have to figure out the balance (between Ingram and RB Alvin Kamara,' Payton said Tuesday, Oct. 2. 'It'll be good for us offensively to have (Ingram) back.'

    Huddle Up: One would think that the Saints will try to replicate last season's smashing backfield success when Ingram led the team in rushing (1,124 yards on 230 attempts to Kamara's 728 yards on 120 carries) while the then-rookie Kamara was the preferred pass-catcher (81 receptions for 826 yards on 100 targets to Ingram's 58-416 on 71 targets). But this is a different team and different season, and Kamara, who's off to a scorching sophomore start as fantasy's No. 1 RB in both standard and PPR scoring, certainly looks to be capable of handling more of the lead-back workload. That said, Ingram is rested and ready along with the fantasy GMs who have him stashed on the bench, so plug him in as a high-upside RB2/flex play this week and see what happens.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 10/1/18 8:14pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is the first player in NFL history with 1,000 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards through his first 20 career games.

    Huddle Up: Kamara will get a chance to show his skills in front of a national audience on Monday night in Week 5 against the Washington Redskins. He continues to show why he was a top fantasy target on draft day.

  • Alvin Kamara - RB
    Posted 9/30/18 8:24pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 19 times for 134 yards and three touchdowns and caught five passes for 47 yards in a 33-18 win over the New York Giants in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: The impending return of Mark Ingram will eat into Kamara's touches a bit going forward, but he's still a high-end RB1 heading into a Week 5 matchup against the Washington Redskins.

  • Michael Thomas - WR
    Posted 9/30/18 8:43pm ET

    New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught all four of his targets for 47 yards in a 33-18 win over the New York Giants in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Thomas and the entire passing attack had an off day, but look for him to return to his WR1 ways in a home contest against the Washington Redskins in Week 5.
