New Orleans Saints OG Josh LeRibeus (ankle) may still return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 10. Head coach Sean Payton has been encouraged by his rehabilitation. LeRibeus cannot be designated to return if teammate WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) is designated, however.

  Saints | Ted Ginn could return from IR    Mon Dec 10, 03:11 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) may still return from the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: Getting Ginn back would give the passing game a speedy deep threat that hasn't necessarily been there every week for QB Drew Brees. Head coach Sean Payton has been encouraged by Ginn's rehabilitation. Ginn cannot be designated to return if teammate OG Josh LeRibeus (ankle) is designated, however.

  Saints | Michael Thomas just misses triple digits    Sun Dec 9, 07:41 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas registered 11 receptions for 98 yards on 13 targets in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Footballguys view: Thomas had been held down in recent weeks, but came through in PPR leagues as a frequent target for Drew Brees on an afternoon when not much came easy for the Saints offense.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara totals 87 scrimmage yards    Sun Dec 9, 07:39 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 51 yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added five grabs for 36 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Kamara failed to get any chunk plays against a defense that had trouble containing talented backs in recent weeks. He wasn't a bust, but didn't help teams advance this week either. He'll still be a RB1 in PPR leagues against Carolina next week.

  Saints | Mark Ingram gets into end zone    Sun Dec 9, 07:35 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added one grab for just one yard.

Footballguys view: Ingram has failed to establish a solid floor since coming back from a suspension this year. His touchdown bailed out anyone who started him, but he's not an automatic play next week at Carolina on Monday night.

  Saints | Drew Brees totals two touchdowns    Sun Dec 9, 07:24 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 24-of-31 passes for 201 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he ran for a score.

Footballguys view: Brees came up small yet again in an outdoor game even though the conditions were fine by game time. He'll have another divisional matchup against a vulnerable defense on the road next week at Carolina. He might be tough to trust if you survived this result.

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (pectoral) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and has been ruled out for Week 14. FB Zach Line (concussion), DT David Onyemata (hip) and OT Ryan Ramczyk (shoulder) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Bucs pass rush doesn't really present any edge threats that can take advantage of Armstead's absence with Jason Pierre-Paul banged up.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: It's Wednesday so Thomas missing playing time is not too alarming. He might be getting some extra rest for this banged up ankle. We expect Thomas to be ready to go in Week 14 against the Buccaneers.

  Saints | Drew Brees struggles in loss    Thu Nov 29, 11:24 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 18 of his 28 passes for 127 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Brees has had an incredibly low floor for an elite fantasy quarterback this year. While we will try to steer clear of the Dallas defense at home against Philly by benching Carson Wentz next week, Brees should have a get right game against the minor league Bucs secondary next week.

  Saints | Mark Ingram held to 28 yards    Thu Nov 29, 11:20 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed seven times for 27 yards and gained one yard on two receptions in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Ingram was neutralized by a fired up Cowboys defense. He'll still be a boom/bust RB2 with a good chance to bounce back at Tampa next week.

  Saints | Tre'Quan Smith a non-factor    Thu Nov 29, 11:17 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith failed to haul in his only target in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Smith is too unreliable to trust in the fantasy playoffs next week against the Bucs even though he has a demonstrated WR1 upside. He is a just a high ceiling desperation play going forward.

  Saints | Michael Thomas held in check    Thu Nov 29, 11:15 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas caught five of his eight targets for 40 yards in a 13-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Thomas was covered well and his run after catch opportunities were limited in the loss. He'll surely have a better game against the Bucs next week.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara returns to game    Thu Nov 29, 11:15 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) returned against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13 after being evaluated for a concussion. He finished with 11 carries for 36 yards and eight receptions for 36 yards in a 13-10 loss.

Footballguys view: Kamara and the whole Saints offense was a Week 13 dud. He should have a great chance to bounce back next week and shake off the effects of the loss against the Bucs next week.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas isn't expected to be shadowed by Dallas Cowboys CB Byron Jones, who has held opposing quarterbacks to a 67.4 passer rating when throwing at him.

Footballguys view: Thomas was already in your lineup, but this makes a better case for putting him in DFS lineups despite his high price.

  Saints | Drew Brees tops in red zone    Tue Nov 27, 12:31 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees leads all quarterbacks with a 117.7 passer rating in the red zone this season.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Brees is accurate and aggressive as a passer...especially when the team is near pay dirt. It's easier than ever to move the ball through the air between the 20s. Brees is showing he can get it done at the highest level when things get tighter in the red zone.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 11 times for 52 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Ingram earned some tough yards between the tackles but didn't get to convert any touchdowns, so his fantasy day was a let down despite the good matchup. He'll still be worthy of an RB2 start at Dallas on Thursday.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 14 times for 89 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in a 31-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Kamara was one broken tackle away from a long score more than once. Don't mistake his disappointing fantasy performance for a lapse in level of play. He's still a strong RB1 heading to Dallas next Thursday.
