Saints | Two Saints WRs on roster bubble?

Thu, 19 Jul 2018 18:22:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints WRs Brandon Coleman and Tommylee Lewis are potentially on the roster bubble, according to Nick Underhill of The Advocate. With the team adding more depth at the position "capable of laying down blocks in the running and screen games," Coleman may have to re-prove himself, while Lewis will have to show he's the best kick returner in camp to make the team. Lewis has done a "fine" job since latching on two years ago, but Underhill explains that "the talent on this team is too thick for fine to cut it."

Saints | Shane Vereen signs with Saints

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 08:39:53 -0700

Free-agent RB Shane Vereen (Giants) signed an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Wednesday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen looks to be depth for Mark Ingram's four-game suspension. Vereen could spell Alvin Kamara on third down, and he can be a short-term RB5 in PPR leagues.

Saints | Cameron Meredith hopeful for training camp

Tue, 17 Jul 2018 00:32:00 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Cameron Meredith (knee) said that while he is still recovering from his knee injury and has been limited in team activities thus far, he is hopeful to be given the "all clear" for training camp. "On a scale of '1 to 10,' it's almost a 10… I haven't had a setback along the recovery process," Meredith said of his injury. "I'm gaining strength day by day, month by month. I'm excited to see how soon I can get back, but the main objective for me is to do as much as I can with the trainers to get ready for the season. My goal is to try and get back to training camp. As long as there aren't any setbacks or anything like that, it shouldn't be a problem."

Fantasy Tip: Even if he's not fully cleared for the start of training camp, it's looking more like Meredith can at least be ready by Week 1. Only two years ago -- his last healthy season -- Meredith led the Bears with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns. Being reunited with receivers coach Curtis Johnson in New Orleans should also help the 25-year-old potentially make a major impact in this high-powered offense, and thus, he's a great sleeper for 2018.

Saints | Tre'Quan Smith transitioning well

Thu, 12 Jul 2018 19:46:46 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith has "handled the install well" during spring practices, according to head coach Sean Payton. "I think he's a quick study," Payton said. "He's big and he's doing a good job."

Fantasy Tip: Drew Brees has made a lot of receivers relevant over the years, and Smith is worth a third-round flier in rookie drafts. He can be left alone in redraft leagues for now.

Sat, 07 Jul 2018 20:29:49 -0700

Saints | Manti Te'o not assured a roster spot

Tue, 26 Jun 2018 19:01:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints LB Manti Te'o projects as a backup behind Demario Davis, A.J. Klein and Alex Anzalone, and he doesn't bring added value on special teams, possibly putting him on the roster bubble, according to ESPN's Mike Triplett.

Saints | Michael Thomas added muscle

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 20:19:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas said he changed his diet and added muscle this offseason without changing his playing weight.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is already entrenched as a WR1, and it doesn't sound like his letting success go to his head. He's a legitimate top-five fantasy option at his position.
