  Saints | Jared Cook catches TD pass    Sun Oct 25, 05:23 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 32 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted four times during the game.

Footballguys view: Cook wasn't a mainstay in the passing game, but he gathered in a score after juggling it and gave a solid result to anyone who trusted him with the Saints top two wide receivers out.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris caught four passes for 46 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted five times during the game.

  Saints | Four receptions for Tre'Quan Smith    Sun Oct 25, 05:16 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught four passes for 54 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted four times during the game.

Footballguys view: Smith was adequate in place of Michael Thomas after he had some bigger games while Thomas was out earlier in the year. He could start again next week, but the Bears are a tough matchup for wide receivers.

  Saints | Marquez Callaway leads team in receiving    Sun Oct 25, 05:15 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught eight passes for 75 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted 10 times during the game.

Footballguys view: Callaway left with an ankle injury late in the game or he could have had even more. He scored but it was wiped off of the board with a weak offensive pass interference call. Michael Thomas and/or Emmanuel Sanders could return next week and Callaway is no sure thing to play, but he certainly announced his presence in dynasty leagues.

  Saints | Latavius Murray has decent outing    Sun Oct 25, 05:05 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 47 yards on 11 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7.

Footballguys view: Murray ran well but was a fantasy disappointment in a great matchup. The Panthers hung tight this one and never let the Saints truly lean on their running game.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara posts 148 total yards    Sun Oct 25, 05:04 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 83 yards on 14 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He also caught eight passes for 65 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara didn't score but he was still the engine of the offense. He'll have a tougher matchup against the Bears next week.

  Saints | Drew Brees accounts for three TDs    Sun Oct 25, 04:50 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 29-for-36 for 287 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He also rushed for two yards and one touchdown on three carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Brees sneak touchdown was possibly just short of the goal line and a fumble, but it was upheld. That's the only blemish on a terrific day without his top two receivers. Brees fantasy stock is up, although he's a sit against the Bears next week in 1QB leagues.

  Saints | Terron Armstead out of game    Sun Oct 25, 02:03 PM

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (arm) suffered an arm injury during the Week 7 game and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Armstead is the stalwart left tackle that protects Drew Brees blindside, although the offense is designed around more short passing now. The Bears and Khalil Mack are up next week.

  Saints | Week 7 New Orleans Saints inactives    Sun Oct 25, 11:40 AM

The New Orleans Saints have declared DE Malcolm Roach, SS D.J. Swearinger, OT Derrick Kelly, WR Michael Thomas, WR Emmanuel Sanders, OG Nick Easton and CB Ken Crawley inactive for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Tre'Quan Smith will be the #1 receiver for the Saints today with rookie Marquez Callaway also playing a role.

  Saints | Michael Thomas likely to miss Week 8's game    Sun Oct 25, 10:57 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle, hamstring) has a Grade 1 hamstring strain, according to a recent MRI exam. He is expected to be sidelined one to two weeks, which means that he is likely to miss Week 8's game versus the Chicago Bears, according to multiple sources. Thomas has already been ruled out for Week 7's contest versus the Carolina Panthers.

  Saints | New Orleans makes three moves    Sat Oct 24, 04:26 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Juwan Johnson and WR Austin Carr were activated to the active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Oct. 24, as COVID-19 replacements. OL Will Clapp was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster.

Footballguys view: The Saints need all the help they can get at the position with Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID-19 list) out of action. Tre'Quan Smith should be their no.1 wide receiver in Week 7. We'll see more targets for RB Alvin Kamara and TE Jared Cook this week too.

  Saints | Michael Thomas available in trade?    Sat Oct 24, 12:43 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (hamstring) may be available in a trade and Thomas could be interested in leaving, according to several unnamed league sources.

Footballguys view: That would be an interesting move to be sure. Thomas has been banged up or suspended by the team in 2020 and has not played since Week 1. He has three catches for 17 yards this entire season. Thomas is under contract through the 2024 season and his numbers are at the top of the market -- which is fine if he's healthy. Perhaps a change of scenery is in order...which sounds crazy but you just never know in the NFL. Stay tuned.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders has been ruled out for Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers after he was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Oct. 23.

Footballguys view: The Saints will start Tre'Quan Smith and one of Deonte Harris or Marquez Callaway at wide receiver. Expect a lot of targets for Jared Cook and also a bigger offensive role for Latavius Murray in this game.

  Saints | Michael Thomas fined, not suspended    Thu Oct 15, 02:24 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was fined $58,823.53 for 'conduct detrimental to the team' and was inactive for New Orleans' Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he was not officially suspended by the team.

Footballguys view: We should see Thomas back in action after the team's bye week this week. The team sent a message to Thomas about what will not be allowed, and he's likely learned his lesson.

  Saints | Jared Cook is questionable     Sat Oct 10, 06:30 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (groin) was limited Saturday, Oct. 10, and is questionable. He's a game-time decision.

Footballguys view: Cook has a modest ceiling and isn't an obvious start with the Saints having a bye next week that could influence them to sit Cook for additional rest. Only possibly Dawson Knox or Anthony Firkser are suitable hedges, but they have their own availability issues with the Bills Titans game up in the air.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was limited Saturday, Oct. 10, and is questionable. He's a game-time decision.

Footballguys view: Thomas has a lower ceiling than usual and the Saints have a bye next week which could influence them to sit him to get one more week of rest. He's not an obvious start but if you can roster Tre'Quan Smith you can wait and see if he's a go with a good alternative. There's also still a chance that Buffalo and Tennessee players will be available if Thomas is declared out on Monday.
