Saints | Marques Colston, Pierre Thomas, Jeremy Shockey inactive

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee), RB Pierre Thomas (ankle) and TE Jeremy Shockey (groin) are among the team's inactives in Week 17 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to CBSSports.com.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints appear not to be taking any chances this week, understandably. The absence of Colston means that Lance Moore, Robert Meachem and even Devery Henderson are in line for increased looks. The Saints spread it around a lot, though. The return of Chris Ivory (hamstring) probably made the decision to rest Thomas an easy one. Ivory gets an upgrade in Week 17 outlook with this news; he could serve as an RB2 or a flex play against Tampa's suspect run D. With neither Shockey nor David Thomas (knee) available, Jimmy Graham is also pretty intriguing start as a fantasy tight end, too.
