Summary

Hau'oli Kikaha's story, when it is all said and done, could be one of 'what if' - but 2017 represents a chance for him to put the injury-plagued past behind him and start fresh. The third-year pro is recovering from a third tear of his left knee's ACL, something division rival Thomas Davis knows all too much about. The former Washington player has a wicked first step and the ability to bend the edge, but we have only seen him play in 2015. Projecting that to this season is difficult for fantasy owners, and surely the Saints will consider anything they get from him a bonus. There is a glimmer of hope, however, that he could remain injury-free and really kick things off. (May 2)

Saints | New Orleans eyeing open competition at DE (Sun May 14, 02:32 PM) - New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan has one defensive end spot locked up, but the team expects an 'open competition' between Alex Okafor, Obum Gwacham, Hau'oli Kikaha and third-round pick Trey Hendrickson for the defensive end spot opposite him.

Our View: The Saints need to find a new starter opposite Jordan after not renewing the contract of Paul Kruger. Okafor has the experience advantage and has an 8.0 sack season (2014) on his resume (when he was with the Cardinals). Hendrickson, the rookie from FAU, is known as a hustle player who just won't quit. He can get the quarterback with bend, burst and a burning desire to make a play. Hendrickson may be best suited as a rotational player, but the upside is there for him to be an effective starter.
