  Saints | Alvin Kamara shines Sunday    Sun Aug 20, 10:54 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara had five carries for 61 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown, and one catch for 22 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: If you're in a super deep league, add Kamara as a Week 16 or Week 17 'lottery ticket' back. Yes, he's third on the depth chart behind Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram but Kamara could get a longer look at the end of the year...especially if the Saints are out of playoff contention. We love his all-purpose skill set and know that he was a touchdown hog in college at Tennessee. Kamara is a dynasty player we covet...and we'll just have to wait and see if he gets an opportunity to do anything in 2017.

  Saints | Adrian Peterson to sit preseason opener    Thu Aug 10, 01:03 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (rest) will not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, August 10, against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: As old as Peterson is, and given he lasted about half a minute last season before getting hurt, it makes sense to rest him as much as possible. Fantasy GMs who lost him last season will approve, but they should be cautioned that Peterson is not what he once was and is in, at best, a committee position. Could he take hold of the starting job? Stranger things have happened, but you don't base your season on an outlier.

  Saints | Ted Ginn listed as No. 2 WR on depth chart    Tue Aug 8, 01:39 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. is listed as the No. 2 wide receiver on the team's first unofficial depth chart that was just released.

Footballguys view: It appears that Willie Snead will be the #3, and perhaps Snead and Ginn's ADP should be closer, as Snead routinely goes 3-4 rounds (if not more) ahead of Ginn. Ginn will have a boom/bust scoring profile, but with his deep speed and Drew Brees ability as a quarterback, the booms will be big.

  Saints | Coach explains Orlando Franklin release    Wed Aug 2, 06:11 PM

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said OG Orlando Franklin (knee) was released because he is still dealing with soreness in his knee and was not able to practice. Payton did not rule out the possibility of re-signing Franklin at some point.

Footballguys view: The Saints aren't in dire straits along the offensive line, thought Franklin would have been a nice addition. They - and the various skill position players around them - will be as productive as usual.

  Saints | Mark Ingram a fixture in passing game    Wed Aug 2, 01:45 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been very active in the passing game throughout training camp, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Footballguys view: Adrian Peterson can do a lot of things, but catching the ball has never been his forte. While after the signing, Peterson was going ahead of Ingram, sanity has reasserted itself and Ingram is going about eight running back spots ahead of Peterson (Ingram currently tracks as RB20 and Peterson is at RB28). While Peterson will see carries, it's important to remember how slow and awful he looked before his injury. That wasn't all the offensive line's fault. We think, especially in PPR leagues, Ingram has a ton of value, and the yards he picks up as a receiver count as much as what he does on the ground, so that RB20 feels OK to us.

  Saints | Brandon Coleman has Drew Brees' trust    Mon Jul 31, 09:10 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman has the trust of QB Drew Brees. 'There's really not a guy who I have more trust in than Brandon Coleman, honestly,' Brees said. 'I've played with him now for a long time, and I feel like he's a guy that can play every position. He can play X, he can play Z, and he can play inside. So his versatility in this offense is really good, he's a very smart player and he's been a guy who's just done whatever we needed him to do over the last few years.'

Footballguys view: There's a lot to trust when a target is 6'6" 225 pounds. Coleman is a big man and has intriguing upside, but he's never been able to quite break through. He's the no4 WR on the Saints roster behind Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and Ted Ginn Jr.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara draws high praise    Sun Jul 30, 08:39 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara's playing style resembles that of retired RB Marshall Faulk, head coach Sean Payton said Sunday, July 30.

Footballguys view: That is high praise indeed. Kamara has a ton of talent as a runner and receiver out of the backfield, plus he's a noted touchdown hog from college. The problem is that he's buried on the depth chart behind Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram. We love Kamara from a dynasty perspective and compare his skill set to that of Thomas Jones.

  Saints | Willie Snead wants to be deep threat    Thu Jul 27, 05:51 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead is focused on becoming more of a deep threat this season rather than his potential long-term contract.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening without Brandin Cooks (Patriots) to stretch the field. Last year, Cooks had an average of 13.06 air yards per target (21st in the league) while Snead averaged 7.38 air yards per target (94th in the league). Snead has worked on his back-end speed this offseason and may have more opportunities down the field with Cooks gone.

Footballguys view: The Saints have had some injuries up front and Franklin is versatile enough to play guard or tackle. We might see the Saints kick LG Andrus Peat outside to tackle while LT Terron Armstead (shoulder) is out.
