  Saints | Willie Snead logged 21 snaps in Week 6    Wed Oct 18, 02:14 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead played in only 21-of-71 snaps in a Week 6 victory over the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: The Saints had a plan to ease Snead back into action, and that's what they did in Week 6. Going forward, Snead should continue to get more snaps and more opportunities for the Saints. In Week 7 on the road against the Packers, Snead is a deep flex play for fantasy owners.

New Orleans Saints LB Nathan Stupar (knee) suffered a torn ACL during the team's Week 6 game and will miss the remainder of the season. He will be placed on Injured Reserve.

  Saints | Daniel Lasco promoted to active roster    Tue Oct 17, 07:04 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Daniel Lasco was promoted the active roster from the practice squad Tuesday, Oct. 17.

Footballguys view: The Saints had been looking for RB help and working out various veterans after trading away Adrian Peterson last week. Lasco will serve as a backup/special teams player. We like his all-purpose skill set, but Lasco isn't in line to get many touches behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.

  Saints | Coby Fleener becoming a non-factor    Tue Oct 17, 02:33 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has caught just three passes for 42 yards in his last three games. Furthermore, he was targeted only once in the Saints' 52-38 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 6.

Footballguys view: Fleener has ran 101 routes for the Saints this year, that mark ranks 31st in the NFL for the TE position. He's just not that involved with the team's offense...even though the Saints have a high-powered passing attack with QB Drew Brees. Fantasy owners have much better options than hoping for Fleener to start doing anything.

  Saints | Shaun Draughn works out for Saints    Mon Oct 16, 07:53 PM

Free-agent RB Shaun Draughn (Giants) worked out for the New Orleans Saints Monday, Oct. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Saints have also worked out Khiry Robinson. They could use some more depth at the RB position since trading away Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) last week.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson working out for Saints    Mon Oct 16, 10:45 AM

Free-agent RB Khiry Robinson (Jets) is working out for the New Orleans Saints Monday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: The Saints picked up Robinson as an undrafted free agent out of West Texas A&M in 2013. He spent about three years with the team before being released in 2016. The Jets picked him up but Robinson broke his leg in the final preseason game for the team. He was picked up later in the year but re-injured his leg and was put on Injured Reserve. Robinson would give the team known veteran depth after trading away Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) last week.

  Saints | Michael Thomas held in check    Sun Oct 15, 09:04 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas posted three catches for 11 yards on six targets in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Chalk this one up to Darius Slay, who is one of the more unheralded shutdown corners in the NFL. Thomas should have a better time of it and stay in our lineups against the Packers next week.

  Saints | Ted Ginn totals 69 yards, TD    Sun Oct 15, 09:02 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. hauled in four receptions for a team-high 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added a three-yard rush.

Footballguys view: Ginn was the best matchup against the Lions secondary with Darius Slay often taking away Michael Thomas. The return of Terron Armstead at left tackle should also help this offensive line create more time for deep passing. Ginn is a good what the heck flex against the Packers depleted secondary next week.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara post 87 total yards    Sun Oct 15, 09:02 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 10 times for 75 yards in Week 6 against the Detroit Lions and he added four grabs for 12 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: Kamara was explosive and showing that he deserves to be larger part of the offense going forward. He'll be a high ceiling PPR flex going forward with an even higher injury ceiling if Mark Ingram goes down.

  Saints | Mark Ingram finishes with big game    Sun Oct 15, 09:01 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram rushed 25 times for 114 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 game against the Detroit Lions and he added five receptions for 36 yards on five targets.

Footballguys view: The Saints had a huge lead in this one, allowing Ingram get a ton of carries and also rewarding him with goal line opportunities. His fantasy scoring was mediocre through four games, but this game reminded us of his high weekly ceiling as the lead back in a high-powered offense.

  Saints | Drew Brees tosses two touchdowns    Sun Oct 15, 08:57 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 21 of his 31 pass attempts for 186 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Brees was quiet for fantasy and not very sharp in the second half as his team was nursing a huge lead. He didn't get much help from Michael Thomas, who was shut down by Darius Slay. The Saints do get the depleted Packers secondary next week, keeping Brees well within the QB1 ranks.

  Saints | Willie Snead a game-time decision    Sun Oct 15, 09:41 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Snead was already going to be eased in to the lineup, so he wouldn't be an advisable play even if he was at full strength today.

  Saints | Week 6 injury report for Saints    Fri Oct 13, 05:36 PM

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (shoulder), WR Willie Snead (hamstring) and OG Andrus Peat (hip) were limited participants Friday, Oct. 13, and each are listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Detroit Lions. CB Sterling Moore (pectoral), RB Trey Edmunds (concussion) and TE Josh Hill (concussion) practiced in full and were removed from the injury reports.

Footballguys view: Snead has said that the team has told him he will be eased back in, so he's not a suitable play this week. If Armstead can return, it will be a big boost to the Saints pass blocking after they started a rookie at left tackle in his absence.

  Saints | Willie Snead listed as limited    Thu Oct 12, 06:38 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Snead has missed three games due to suspension, a week for a hamstring injury and the team's bye week and he has been saying he is being eased in. Were not sure what his role is, so we're hesitant to put him in lineups as more than a WR5 if you are in a tough spot.

  Saints | Willie Snead being eased in    Thu Oct 12, 09:48 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead said the team is easing him back in the fold this week after missing three games due to suspension, a week for a hamstring injury and the team's bye week. 'Right now, they're throwing me back in there slowly,' Snead said. 'And I think once this week goes by and I'm able to handle what they're giving me, I think my role will grow more and more every week.'

  Saints | Willie Snead draws limited status    Wed Oct 11, 05:32 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

Footballguys view: He was eligible to return after his suspension the last time the Saints played (Week 4) but missed the game due to this injury. With a week to rest on the bye in Week 5, Snead is on track to play at home against the Lions in Week 6.

  Saints | Willie Snead healed up    Wed Oct 11, 10:59 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) has recovered from his hamstring injury, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Footballguys view: Snead was eligible to return in the Saints last game but this hamstring injury prevented him from playing in Week 4. With the bye week behind them, the Saints come out at home against the Lions. That's good news for Snead and the New Orleans passing attack. If healthy, Snead is a favorite target of QB Drew Brees and could post WR3/flex numbers for fantasy owners in Week 6.

  Saints | Ted Ginn not a big factor    Sun Oct 1, 01:12 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught two passes for 25 yards against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.

Footballguys view: The images of Ginn as a Devery Henderson plus in a Drew Brees pass offense haven't come to fruition. He's not even a hold heading into the Saints bye.

Footballguys view: Ingram appeared to be passed by Alvin Kamara as the closest thing the Saints have to a lead back. He'll be a PPR high ceiling RB2 heading into the Saints bye.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 29-for-41 for 268 passing yards in Week 4's victory over the Miami Dolphins, with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Footballguys view: Brees isn't a big downfield passing threat in this version of the Saints offense, but he is still a steady high floor QB1 heading into his bye. The Saints defense is also settling down and giving him fewer high-scoring game scripts.

Footballguys view: Snead is battling a hamstring issue and just came back from a three-game suspension. He'll return to the lineup in Week 6 after the Saints bye next week. Armstead should also be ready to return in two weeks and bolster the Saints offensive line.

  Saints | Willie Snead questionable for Week 4    Fri Sep 29, 07:10 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead (hamstring) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Snead was already not assured of his full role in his first game back from suspension, so this injury status makes it even easier to bench him for his first game back, although he should be claimed off of the waiver wire if he wasn't drafted.
