Saints | Brandon Coleman, Seantavius Jones have impressed

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 09:37:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints second-year WRs Brandon Coleman and Seantavius Jones have impressed head coach Sean Payton, and they both may see bigger roles in the offense in 2015 now that WR Kenny Stills isn't in the picture anymore. Both undrafted rookies spent the 2014 season on the practice squad.

Saints | Sean Payton high on C.J. Spiller

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:11:13 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller received some praise from head coach Sean Payton after the team was surprised to be able to land him in free agency. "His cutup is unbelievable," Payton said of Spiller. "And I'm not talking about last season because I think it became challenging, but you go back a couple of years and start looking at his screen reel, a sweep reel, a return reel."

Fantasy Tip: It'll be a committee approach in New Orleans again with Mark Ingram and Spiller (surprise, surprise), but the fantasy outlook for both runners should be positive. The Saints have a history of finding success for pass-catching backs like Spiller, so he could be a fine value in point-per-reception leagues, and he still has plenty of upside left.

Saints | NO considered Reggie Bush

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:08:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush was considered by the New Orleans Saints before he agreed with the Niners, according to Saints head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Be careful not to overvalue Bush in 2015 drafts. Remember, he'll be splitting time with Carlos Hyde in San Fran, and Hyde is expected to be the main back, with Bush contributing mostly in passing situations. Consider Bush as fantasy depth in point-per-reception formats.

Saints | Marcus Mariota won't go to Saints

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:50:40 -0700

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota isn't an option for the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said the Saints will not move up in the first round in order to select Mariota. Payton also said there wasn't "one iota" of truth to rumors that New Orleans is looking to trade QB Drew Brees.

Fantasy Tip: The knock on Mariota is that he played in a spread offense in college that may not translate well to NFL offenses. However, he's likely to go early in the first round to a QB-needy team and compete for a starting job right away. Mariota may be worth a late-round flier in fantasy drafts, but you shouldn't expect much out of him right away.

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 09:32:02 -0700

Saints | Josh Hill expected to have bigger role

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 07:52:10 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill is expected to have a bigger role in the offense in 2015. Head coach Sean Payton has mentioned him quite a bit since they traded TE Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: For a relative unknown, Hill's numbers were promising. He caught 14 balls for 176 yards and five touchdowns in just 20 targets in 2014. View Hill as a TE2 with upside.

Saints | Under salary cap

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 10:20:50 -0700

The New Orleans Saints are currently $1.7 million under the 2015 salary cap. General manager Mickey Loomis spent the early part of the offseason getting rid of much of their payroll that had them around $23 million over the $143.2 million cap before the new league year began.

Saints | Drew Brees not on trade block

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 10:12:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will not be traded, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. Recent speculation said that Brees may be on the trade block after his favorite target, TE Jimmy Graham, was dealt to the Seattle Seahawks. "Anybody who thinks we're trading Drew Brees, that's just not true," Loomis told USA TODAY Sports. Brees threw for 33 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in 2014 while completing 69.2% of his passes for a league-high 4,952 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Brees will continue to be a QB1 for fantasy owners in 2015, but you may want to temper your expectations a bit after he lost both Graham and Kenny Stills this offseason.
