Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 3 vs ATL (6 / 3 / 12 / 1 rec, 1 / 20 / 0 rush)
This game was all about spreading the ball around and Ginn got his chance early. It was Ginn who scored the first touchdown of the game on the first drive. Brees rolled right on play action and Ginn streaked out into the flat. They completed a short pass and Ginn stiff armed his defender to the ground before walking into the end zone. There was no help on the outside and the safety was busy providing help on Michael Thomas on the other side. Ginn is usually a boom or bust candidate and relies on the big play to score. This week he muscled up and scored one in tight after breaking a tackle. He was very quiet the rest of the game and the only other play worth noting was a 6-yard catch near the end of the first quarter. But the Saints ended up punting on that drive.
2018 Week 2 vs CLE (7 / 4 / 55 / 0 rec)
The final stat line may not show it, but Ginn did not have a great game. Brees narrowly missed him on a shot down the field for their first attempt, and then Ginn fumbled the next pass that came his way right at the line of scrimmage. This was early in the second quarter and right around mid-field. The rest of the game was full of failed shots down the field, a few quick outs, and one big play. That big play came in the form of 42-yard completion where Ginn caught the ball 16-yard down the middle of the field and then ran another 26 before being tackled. This was a huge moment in the game as it came right after the Browns had tied the score and it helped set up the eventual game winning field goal for the Saints. Ginn overcame his early fumble and made a play during crunch time. There has been no clear cut second receiver thus far for the Saints, but in regard to production it has easily been Ginn.
2018 Week 1 vs TB (6 / 5 / 68 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
The ball was flying all over the place this week and Ginn managed to cash in. It was Tampa Bay who had receivers haul in touchdowns of 50+ yards, but Ginn showed he has not lost a step when he ran past his man for an easy 28-yard touchdown. On the first play of the second quarter, Ginn simply ran past his man and Brees laid a beautiful ball right into the bread basket for an easy touchdown. Ginn caught 5 of his 6 targets but was competing with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara who accounted for 2/3 of all completions and most of the yards. Ginn is a threat over the top on every single play and it was a little surprising they did not take more shots down the field with him, especially when they were trailing late in the game.

OG Andrus Peat (ankele), OT Terron Armstead (knee) and WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) were limited in practice for a third straight day Friday, Sept. 21, but no longer appear on the injury report. Our View: Ginn is a good boom/bust WR3/Flex against the Falcons this week. He was open for a long score last week, but Drew Brees uncharacteristically missed him.
