  Saints | Saints' top three RBs back on the field    Thu Nov 27, 04:59 PM

New Orleans Saints RBs Mark Ingram (shoulder), RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) and RB Travaris Cadet (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.

Footballguys view: Ingram is the lead back here, and Thomas serves as a change of pace and receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy owners need to adjust expectations for the Saints backfield since Thomas has returned from his injury.

  Saints | Brodrick Bunkley may have torn quad    Tue Nov 25, 11:56 AM

New Orleans Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley (quadriceps) is believed to have torn his quadriceps in the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 24, but he'll undergo an MRI exam first to make sure. Bunkley had just 17 tackles and no sacks on the year, but he was one of the team's best inside run-stuffers.

New Orleans Saints LB Kyle Knox (hand) did not practice Saturday, Nov. 22, and has been ruled out for Monday night's game. WR Robert Meachem (ankle) was limited and is questionable. LB Curtis Lofton (ankle) and CB Keenan Lewis (knee) were limited and are probable. OT Zach Strief (chest) was a full participant and is probable.

  Saints | Travaris Cadet probable for Monday    Sat Nov 22, 02:58 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet (hamstring) is probable for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens after being limited in practice Saturday, Nov. 22.

Footballguys view: Cadet's workload won't make him fantasy relevant...especially now that Pierre Thomas is expected to be back in action. Cadet is third-string behind Mark Ingram and Thomas.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas probable     Sat Nov 22, 02:54 PM

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.

Footballguys view: After missing about a month, Thomas is back in action. We like him as a low-end RB3/flex option. The Saints offense hasn't looked like what most expect recently, so getting Thomas back should certainly help. Mark Ingram is still the starter, and his workload as a runner makes him a low-end RB1.

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice for the second straight day Friday, Nov. 21.

  Saints | Full practice for Mark Ingram    Thu Nov 20, 05:34 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: We expect a great game from Ingram, bouncing back from last week's sub-100 yard totals (he still had 97 combined yards though). Prior to that he had run for more than 100 yards for three straight games. He's a great RB2.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas limited Thursday    Thu Nov 20, 05:28 PM

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 Monday, Nov. 24.

Footballguys view: Thomas could see some more work this week with other running backs banged up, but is still behind Mark Ingram, who is an RB2 this week. Thomas is no better than an RB4 if he plays on Monday night.

  Saints | Travaris Cadet, Khiry Robinson no-shows    Thu Nov 20, 05:24 PM

New Orleans Saints RBs Travaris Cadet (hamstring) and Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Footballguys view: Robinson probably won't play, while Cadet is almost impossible to start and no better than an RB6, which makes him useless.

  Saints | Edwin Baker waived    Tue Nov 18, 06:11 PM

The New Orleans Saints placed RB Edwin Baker on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Footballguys view: There's a few teams in need of a running back across the league now. Baker isn't a stud, but he's a servicable player who might get some calls.

  Saints | Brandin Cooks placed on IR    Tue Nov 18, 05:29 PM

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

Footballguys view: The rookie's season is now over. Cooks flashed playmaking ability for the Saints this year, and he will be missed. Without Cooks, we could see Kenny Stills become a more fantasy relevant player.

  Saints | Two Saints WRs could see more time    Mon Nov 17, 02:34 PM

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.

Footballguys view: Neither player has a ton of fantasy upside. We like Kenny Stills here with Cooks done for about a month. Stills is likely to have a much bigger role in the offense.

  Saints | Brandin Cooks may miss 4-6 weeks    Mon Nov 17, 01:39 PM

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

Footballguys view: Bad news for the rookie here. That timetable puts his return right at the end of the regular season. The way the Saints are playing, there's no guarantee they're headed for the playoffs.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas will not play    Fri Nov 14, 04:06 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 14, and has been ruled out for Week 11.

Footballguys view: Mark Ingram's way to big numbers is paved with the absence of Thomas and Khiry Robinson. He's still a strong RB2 as the Bengals come to New Orleans this week.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham poses matchup problem    Fri Nov 14, 12:32 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham will likely be covered by Cincinnati Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur in Week 11. Lamur makes the most sense to cover Graham because of his combination of athletic ability and size (6-4, 240 pounds). However, Lamur has struggled against tight ends this year; According to ESPN Stats & Information, four tight ends caught a combined 28 passes for 339 yards, three touchdowns and 18 first downs with Lamur on the field. Lamur has faced the likes of Baltimore Ravens TE Dennis Pitta, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker, New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski and Carolina Panthers TE Greg Olsen this year.

Footballguys view: It doesn't really matter who teams try to cover Graham with, he will get his, especially with this offense playing in the Superdome four of the last six weeks of the fantasy season.

  Saints | Mark Ingram's status not in doubt    Thu Nov 13, 06:07 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) was limited in practice again Thursday, Nov. 13, but his status doesn't appear to be in doubt for Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ingram has carried the ball 57 times in the last two games while dealing with his shoulder ailment.

Footballguys view: Ingram is a RB1 this week at home against the Bengals. He said that his body has become used to the heavy workload.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas, Khiry Robinson out    Thu Nov 13, 06:01 PM

Footballguys view: We're not surprised here. This means another big role for Mark Ingram in Week 11.
