  Saints | New Orleans loses Wild Card game    Sun Jan 5, 04:38 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 26-for-33 for 208 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in the Wild Card playoff game. QB Taysom Hill completed a 50-yard pass, rushed for 50 yards on four carries and caught two passes for 25 yards and one touchdown during the game. RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 21 yards and one touchdown on seven carries and caught eight passes for 34 yards. RB Latavius Murray rushed for 21 yards on five carries. WR Michael Thomas caught seven passes for 70 yards on eight targets. TE Jared Cook caught five passes for 54 yards on five targets, while WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught one pass for 18 yards on two targets.

Footballguys view: The Saints just couldn't stop the Vikings offense down the stretch. There was a potential non-call on Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph when he pushed off to score a touchdown in overtime, but so many other opportunities slipped through the Saints fingers on Sunday. It's another disappointing end for the Saints in the postseason. The Saints are now the first team in NFL history to have six straight playoff eliminations by one score and the second team since the Packers from 2013-15 to be eliminated in three straight postseasons on the final play of the game.

  Saints | Ted Ginn may receive bigger role    Sat Feb 9, 01:48 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. likely will receive a bigger role in the passing game in 2019 after being limited to five games this season.

Footballguys view: That's a fair statement. Ginn still has plenty of speed to burn and is a dangerous deep threat for Drew Brees. Rookie Tre'Quan Smith flashed at times but was not consistent.

Footballguys view: The Saints are at home against the Eagles on Sunday in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

  Saints | Tre'Quan Smith ready to shine    Fri Oct 19, 10:07 PM

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.'

Footballguys view: We're ready for him to shine too. Team sources were raving about Smith during training camp but we had to wait a bit or him to show what he could do in the regular season. He's worth throwing in as a 'what the heck' flex this week...and he's got the skill set and upside to be much more going forward.

  Saints | Ted Ginn catches TD pass    Sun Sep 9, 04:59 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught five passes for 68 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa bay Buccaneers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: Ginn was up and down last year, and he started 2018 on an up note. He'll be a good pickup for a spot start against the Browns next week, and he appears to be holding off rookie Tre'Quan Smith.

  Saints | Ted Ginn Jr. burned press coverage in 2018    Thu Jun 28, 03:31 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. recorded a catch rate of 88.2 percent and a perfect receiver rating of 158.3 against press coverage in 2017, according to Pro Football Focus. Both marks were the best in the league among receivers who finished with at least 10 targets.

Footballguys view: Last season did see a drop in targets from 95 to 70, but he still managed over 700 yards and four touchdowns, increasing his yards per catch average by a full yard, though still below his career high of 16.8 in 2015. He caught almost as many balls on less targets last year too, which will happen when Drew Brees becomes your quarterback. The downside is we expect him to lose some snaps to Cameron Meredith and Tre'Quan Smith. His ADP is 61 right now, and we expect it to hold there.

  Saints | Ted Ginn shines with eight grabs    Sun Jan 14, 08:34 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. racked up eight receptions for 72 yards on 11 targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game loss against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: Ginn had a strong game, including a touchdown called back by penalty. He was too inconsistent to be reliable for fantasy teams this year, but if he's the Saints clear #2 receiver again next season, he'll have some bench value. Willie Snead's injury opened the door for Ginn, and Snead will be a restricted free agent in a few months.
