New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks was targeted eight times in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26, but he posted just two receptions for 13 yards. He also carried once for six yards.
Fantasy Tip: It was a disappointing fantasy performance for Cooks considering there were a total of 77 points scored in the game. Cooks remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues until this kind of performance becomes a regularity. It won't.

New Orleans Saints rookie WR Michael Thomas posted seven receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. He was targeted 11 times, tied for the most in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Thomas certainly had the eye of Drew Brees, as the Falcons did a good job shutting down Brandin Cooks and forcing someone else to beat them. Thomas entered the season with a lot of hype, but this was easily his best game of the season. He has WR3 ability in most fantasy formats.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener posted seven receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. He was targeted 11 times, tied for most in the game.
Fantasy Tip: Fleener went to New Orleans with high expectations from fantasy owners, but he fell on his face in the first two games. For those who gave up on him, there will be a mass waiver wire add in the upcoming week after this performance.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 36 of his 54 pass attempts for 376 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. Since 2012 Brees has 19 losses in game with 300 or more yards, most in the NFL. His interception snapped a streak of 305 passes without an INT, the fourth-longest streak in NFL history without a pick.
Fantasy Tip: The Saints are 0-3, but Brees is still putting up big numbers and is doing his part. He remains a top-notch fantasy option across the board in all formats heading into Week 4.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram carried 15 times for 77 yards in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26. He also hauled in four receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown on six targets.
Fantasy Tip: Ingram's touchdown was his first in three games, but he has yet to post a rushing score. His 77-yard rushing total was the highest of the season, but he is still sitting on just 165 yards through three games. He needs to do better.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Thomas should receive more playing time with Snead out. Coby Fleener likely will also see more targets in the passing game. Thomas should be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in deeper leagues, while Fleener can be a starting tight end for fantasy owners.

Fantasy Tip: Snead missed practice on Thursday and Friday before getting a limited session in on Saturday, so this news isn't entirely unexpected. Rookie Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should be more involved than usual in a plus-matchup, while Travaris Cadet and Mark Ingram could see a bit more work in the passing game as well.

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (knee) and CB Delvin Breaux (leg) have been ruled out for Week 3. DT Tyeler Davison (foot, shoulder), LB Dannell Ellerbe (quadriceps), TE Josh Hill (ankle), DE Cameron Jordan (knee) and FS Kenny Vaccaro (ankle) are listed as questionable. Jordan and Vaccaro were limited during practice Saturday, Sept. 24, while the other players did not participate in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Snead will be a risky option for owners this week since he will be a game-time decision and plays on Monday Night Football. Owners may want to consider other options because there will not be many other options available Monday, Sept. 26, if he is ruled out.
