  Saints | Jimmy Graham limited    Wed Oct 22, 04:42 PM

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.

  Saints | Khiry Robinson misses practices    Wed Oct 22, 04:38 PM

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

Footballguys view: Both Robinson and Pierre Thomas (shoulder) are a little bit banged up. Fantasy owners of Mark Ingram should see a larger workload in Week 8. We like Ingram as a RB2/flex play in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas does not practice    Wed Oct 22, 04:37 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (rib, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Footballguys view: Thomas might not be able to play this week. With Thomas and Khiry Robinson (forearm) both banged up, we could see a larger role for Mark Ingram in Week 8 against the Packers.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas out 2-3 weeks    Tue Oct 21, 08:45 AM

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.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas injured    Sun Oct 19, 03:27 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (shoulder) left the team's Week 7 game early because of a shoulder injury.

Footballguys view: Travaris Cadet will take over as the primary receiving back and he could have value in PPR leagues on the waiver wire.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham will play    Sun Oct 19, 09:20 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) will play Sunday, Oct. 19, but is not expected to start in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Graham has multi-TD upside, but he could also be a zero. The fact that the Saints are playing the #1 defense in the league doesn't help matters, but the Lions have given up three of their five passing touchdowns to tight ends

  Saints | Jimmy Graham open to restrictions    Sat Oct 18, 05:34 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'd be open to being limited only to red zone situations in Week 7, when asked by a reporter.

Footballguys view: That does hurt his value and there is no way you'll know if it is going to happen before the game. He's a TE1 (if he plays) but this certainly raises some concerns.

New Orleans Saints LB Ramon Humber (ankle) and LB Kyle Knox (ankle) both did not practice Friday, Oct. 17, and have been ruled out for Week 7. CB Patrick Robinson (hamstring) did not practice and is questionable. CB Keenan Lewis (tow), LB Ronald Powell (illness) both were limited in practice and are probable. C Jonathan Goodwin (knee) and RB Erik Lorig (ankle) both fully practiced and are probable.

  Saints | Mark Ingram a full go    Fri Oct 17, 04:39 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for Week 7.

Footballguys view: The Saints backfield will go back to being a three, if not four-headed affair that frustrates fantasy owners. Against a fierce defense like the Lions, none of them look like compelling plays.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham to be game-time decision    Fri Oct 17, 04:16 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he won't know until just before kickoff Sunday, Oct. 19, if he'll play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. "I think (coach) Sean (Payton) might try to see how I'm doing on Sunday and maybe work me before the game to see where I'm at," Graham, who was limited and listed as questionable for Sunday, said. "As of right now I don't know." Head coach Sean Payton would not discuss whether Graham could be limited if he plays Sunday. TEs Benjamin Watson and Josh Hill will likely see an increase in snaps if Graham doesn't play.

Footballguys view: Graham is a low-end boom/bust TE1 if he goes on Sunday, but lineups should be set without him. Drew Brees is a borderline QB1 without Graham, so if you're considering him and another solid option, Graham's status matters a lot there, too. Marques Colston has been identified as the candidate to pick up the most slack in the passing game if Graham is out.

  Saints | Full practice for Mark Ingram    Thu Oct 16, 05:25 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) practiced in full for the second straight week Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Ingram might be fighting for his job when he comes back as Khiry Robinson has had some good days. Still, Ingram looked pretty good before the injury so keep an eye on his status for when he comes back. We like him as a RB3/flex play in his first week back.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas sits out practice    Thu Oct 16, 04:30 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas (illness) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: He should be back for Sunday, but even if he is, he has been reduced to RB4 status due to offensive issues and the Week 7 return of Mark Ingram.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham limited in practice    Thu Oct 16, 04:27 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 16. Head coach Sean Payton said he's optimistic about Graham playing this week.

Footballguys view: Payton may be, we are not. If he does play it's hard to not start him, but make sure you have another option in case he is a late deactivation.

  Saints | Mark Ingram may share carries    Thu Oct 16, 11:12 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (thumb) received a majority of the carries during the first two games of the season, but head coach Sean Payton said the team has not decided how they will split the carries in Week 7. RB Khiry Robinson filled in for Ingram while he was out and has rushed for 304 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season.

Footballguys view: Did Ingram just get Wally Pipp'd? Maybe, but it's fair to say that Robinson looked as good or better than Ingram has in his career during a much shorter span. This hurts both of their values of course, thought Robinson was a decent RB3 no more. Right now he's more of a low-end RB3 or RB4 and Ingram is a shaky RB3.

  Saints | Mark Ingram 100 percent ready    Wed Oct 15, 07:30 PM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (thumb) said he hasn't been limited at all after returning to practice this week, and he no longer has a brace on his hand. 'I'm ready to go full go, 100 percent, full tilt,' Ingram said. 'I've been getting all the reps in practice. They haven't babied me or eased me into practice, so I've been doing everything, catching, running, blocking, everything.' However, head coach Sean Payton has been mum on how the team will split repetitions between Ingram and RBs Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: It will be good to see Ingram back out there. In his first week back, we like Ingram as a RB3/flex play for your fantasy team. It's a tough matchup, and we're unsure how the carries will be divided.

  Saints | Mark Ingram practices, expects to play    Wed Oct 15, 05:28 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 15, and said he plans to play in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. RB Khiry Robinson had been taking most of the snaps in Ingram's absence. 'We'll see how we handle that on Sunday,' said head coach Sean Payton. 'Obviously we value depth at that position.'

Footballguys view: We might see Ingram wear a small brace on his hand, but his fracture has healed completely. Before his injury, Ingram was the best Saints back to start for fantasy owners. In his first week back--against a tough Lions defense--we can only recommend him as a RB3/flex play in Week 7.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham misses practice     Wed Oct 15, 05:22 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham likely to miss 2 games    Sun Oct 12, 10:07 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is expected to miss two to three weeks after the bye week in Week 6, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Josh Hill and Ben Watson are viable desperation plays at TE while Jimmy Graham is out. Graham could still possibly play next week, but he is likely a game-time decision at the very best. Hill could also increase his dynasty profile with good play in his increased role.

  Saints | Pierre Thomas still producing     Sat Oct 11, 02:11 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Pierre Thomas is currently RB11 in point-per-reception leagues. Thomas has seen a noticeably decreased role in the running game, but is still top-five among running backs in catches (22).

Footballguys view: The lack of ground yards hurts his overall value, especially since he has only caught more than 50 yards worth of passes twice so far this year. We'll see if that changes when the Saints return from their bye week.

  Saints | Tom Crabtree signs    Tue Oct 7, 06:19 PM

The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent TE Tom Crabtree (Buccaneers) to their active roster Tuesday, Oct. 7.

Footballguys view: This is just an insurance policy because Jimmy Graham is banged up with a shoulder problem. Graham should be back for Week 7, and that means Crabtree might not be with the Saints that long.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham could play    Tue Oct 7, 10:27 AM

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham's (shoulder) sprained shoulder diagnosis gives reason for optimism that he could play in Week 7, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Triplett.

Footballguys view: The Saints have a bye in Week 6, so that should give Graham plenty of time to heal. Watch his practice status next week, and fantasy owners should add Josh Hill in deeper leagues just in case.

  Saints | Mark Ingram to return Week 6?    Mon Oct 6, 02:53 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (hand) could return this week from the broken hand he suffered in Week 2. Ingram's original reported return date was slated for Week 6 - the Saints bye week.

Footballguys view: That's good news for the Saints, but it's bad news for Khiry Robinson's fantasy owners. Ingram looked like a man possessed earlier this year, and he is the Saints lead back when healthy. Monitor his practice status during the week to see if he can play in Week 7 against the Lions.

Brees reached 40,000 yards passing with the Saints in his 132nd game with the club.

  Saints | Jimmy Graham has shoulder sprain    Sun Oct 5, 08:40 PM

Updating a previous report, the injury for New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) is not believed to be serious, according to a league source. The team is heading into a bye, but it is still unclear if he will be able to return Oct. 19 when the team faces the Detroit Lions in Week 7.

Footballguys view: We'll just have to wait until next week to know where we stand with Graham, but his pattern of injuries is starting to make it seem inevitable that he will suffer an injury that causes him to miss time or lose effectiveness by midseason every year.
