New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) will return to practice this week with an eye on returning for Week 8.

Footballguys view: The team is winning with Teddy Bridgewater, so there's no need to rush Brees back especially the way the schedule shakes out. If Brees can't make it back this week, he should be back after the Week 9 bye week.

New Orleans Saints RB Dwayne Washington will be 'invited into the offensive mix' against the Chicago Bears in Week 7 with RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) ruled out, according to Larry Holder of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: Latavius Murray is the starter and could produce like a RB2 for Fantasy GMs while Kamara is out. Washington is a big back who can grind between the tackles. We're monitoring his pro career but only in super deep dynasty formats.

Footballguys view: Cadet has spent most of his pro career with the Saints, and they're likely just updating their emergency list here. Alvin Kamara (ankle) is a little banged up, so perhaps the Saints want to add some depth behind Latavius Murray.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara involved in run, pass game    Sun Oct 13, 04:15 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 31 yards on 11 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He also caught seven passes for 35 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara was contained by a high effort Jaguars defense, but his PPR result was still acceptable, albeit a floor game. Next week against the Bears should also be a long afternoon and Latavius Murray looked good. Kamara came in questionable with an ankle injury, so perhaps the team should go to a more even split over the next two weeks before the bye.
