  Saints | Jimmy Graham with another solid game    Fri Oct 31, 01:33 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who had a team-high seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 win Thursday, Oct. 30, said a vicious hit earlier in the game inspired him to be more aggressive and physical against the Carolina Panthers. "I just need to play more emotional," said Graham. "I think early I wasn't playing emotional enough -- at least for me. I think I need to bring it that way on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and in practice. And when I do that, I think it adds something not only to my game, but it helps spur our offense."

Footballguys view: Graham was somewhat quiet and still had what passes for a huge game for a fantasy tight end. Even better days are likely to come in the second half of the season, starting next week at San Francisco.

  Saints | Mark Ingram injures shoulder    Thu Oct 30, 10:31 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (shoulder) suffered a right shoulder injury in the first half of the team's game Thursday, Oct. 30, and will play the rest of the game with a brace.

Footballguys view: Ingram was able to ring up 30 carries, so that shoulder must not have been bothering him too much. The big question for Ingram owners is whether he can get the bulk of the carries when Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson return.

  Saints | Mark Ingram ready to carry load    Tue Oct 28, 09:03 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is a little sore after a career-high 24 carries in Week 8 but added that he will be ready to carry a heavy load again in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: Ingram is in the final year of his contract, and he's on a tear--so long as he's healthy. This week against the Panthers, Ingram makes a nice RB2 with RB1 upside.

Footballguys view: Graham was back--sort of--in Week 8. At least he wasn't blanked against the Packers. Fantasy owners should still see him as a low-end TE1 in Week 9.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham questionable    Fri Oct 24, 04:19 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Graham carries the risk of a zero, but a potential shootout could give him plenty of opportunities for red zone catches, too. Unless you have a very compelling option to play ahead of Graham, it's probably best to put him in.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson ruled out    Fri Oct 24, 04:09 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Mark Ingram becomes almost a must start at home against a suspect Packers run defense, with no real competition for the bread and butter carries and goal line work in the Saints very productive offense.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas to miss Week 8    Fri Oct 24, 04:08 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 24, and has been ruled out for Week 8.

Footballguys view: Travaris Cadet will be the primary receiving back with Thomas out, and it should also add a few touches to Mark Ingram's workload. Whether Thomas is worth carrying through his injury depends on the scoring system and bench size of your league, and your current RB corps, but it is not a slam dunk.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas sits out of practice    Thu Oct 23, 04:21 PM

New Orleans RB Pierre Thomas (ribs, shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Graham was only targeted twice in the game against the Lions in Week 7...and he caught zero passes thrown his way. We'll see if he can get healthier and get back on track this week. This ankle injury complicates things, but Graham is still a low-end TE1 in Week 8.

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (forearm) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) is expected to miss two to three weeks due to a shoulder injury, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind when you're looking at Travaris Cadet on the waiver wire. Mark Ingram returned last week, but Cadet is turning into their primary receiving back. He should get a larger role with Thomas out.
