Saints | Two WRs cut

Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:20:23 -0700

The New Orleans Saints released WRs Patrick Crayton and Steve Breaston Monday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Kenny Stills appears to have separated himself as the No. 3 wide receiver based on his play this preseason, and this move supports that idea. Stills isn't a bad late-round selection to shore up your WR depth.

Saints | Patrick Crayton signs

Mon, 12 Aug 2013 14:09:19 -0700

The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent WR Patrick Crayton (Cowboys) to an undisclosed deal Monday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Crayton will join the crowded competition for the No. 3 receiver duties with Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Steve Breaston and others. Crayton probably isn't worth a late-round flier unless he stands out in the final three weeks of the preseason.

Saints | Younger WRs could get more chances

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:27:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints WRs Saalim Hakim, Preston Parker, Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon could each see bigger roles following the injury to WR Joe Morgan (knee), who is likely to miss at least a few weeks. However, the team values experience in the top three receiver roles, and it is believed veteran WR Steve Breaston will get a long look as the No. 3 first before any of the younger players.

WR Jonathan Baldwin did not catch a single pass.

Chiefs | Uncertainty at WR

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 17:54:31 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin will be one of the starters at wide receiver in Week 15 with WR Dwayne Bowe (ribs) out for the rest of the year. Head coach Romeo Crennel said WRs Steve Breaston and Devon Wylie could be starting opposite of Breaston, but Crennel is unsure which player that will be. "We're going to work during the week and we're going to see who will give us the best chance in the game, and then those guys will be active," Crennel said. Breaston has disappointed with only seven catches for 74 yards this, but he is the receiver with the most experience on the current roster. He has been inactive for four of the last five games, and Crennel indicated that Breaston doesn't seem to have a strong grasp of the offense. WR Dexter McCluster has the most catches on roster in his career other than Breaston, with 108.

Chiefs | Steve Breaston in the doghouse

Thu, 15 Nov 2012 05:24:36 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs WR Steve Breaston was inactive for the team's Week 10 game, and head coach Romeo Crennel said that is because the team wants to take a look at other players. "What happened a little bit is that he hasn't made as many plays," Crennel said. "So this past game he took a backseat so that we could get a younger player up to see what the younger player could do." Rookie WR Devon Wylie took Breaston's place; however, he played six snaps and was not targeted on a pass. Crennel said there are other issues as well regarding Breaston. "He's a veteran player, and some young guys might have a little more quickness and a little bit more speed. And if you as a coach want to take a look at that speed, you have to make a move. So I did."
