Saints | C.J. Spiller has done well on turf

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:43:40 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has averaged 5.02 yards and 7.66 yards on 501 career attempts and 109 career receptions, respectively, when playing on turf -- the surface he'll be playing on in New Orleans.

Fantasy Tip: This is promising news for Spiller, who will play at least half of his games in 2015 on turf. Mark Ingram will see the majority of work on the ground, but Spiller will be the primary pass-catching option out of the backfield. The key for Spiller will be staying healthy. He should be drafted as a low-end RB2 in PPR scoring leagues.

Saints | Nick Toon to see a lot more snaps

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 12:29:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon's snap count will go way up this season, according to head coach Sean Payton. Payton said Toon has been working hard, he understands the system and he has shown progress.

Fantasy Tip: Toon has a good chance to be the No. 3 wide receiver this year behind Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston. There are plenty of targets to take over in the wake of TE Jimmy Graham and WR Kenny Stills leaving. WRs Josh Morgan, Brandon Coleman and Seantavius Jones should also see some playing time, but this could be the year that Toon breaks out.

Saints | Khiry Robinson ready for opportunity

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 15:09:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson is ready to take what he can get after an arm injury cut his 2014 campaign short. "I'm the type of person, I'm gonna get what I get and do what I do with it," Robinson said. "So whether it's 20 carries or one carry, I'm gonna [perform to] the best of my ability every play." Robinson is remaining confident after the Saints spent big money to re-sign RB Mark Ingram and acquire RB C.J. Spiller.

Fantasy Tip: Robinson will indubitably be the third wheel in the Saints' backfield this year. His value will increase tremendously if Ingram suffers a long-term injury, but for now he should not be drafted as more than a handcuff for Ingram.

Saints | Josh Morgan has had good offseason

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:24:04 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Josh Morgan battled TE Benjamin Watson for most catches in practices this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan is expected to be the No. 4 wide receiver behind Brandin Cooks, Marques Colston and Nick Toon. Morgan is more of a deep threat and doesn't see a lot of targets, so he'll really only have value if another receiver gets injured.

Saints | C.J. Spiller a good fit in New Orleans?

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:52:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has a perfect skill-set for head coach Sean Payton's system, which relies on getting the ball to players in space, according Chris Wesseling of Wesseling believes Spiller is significantly more talented than RB Reggie Bush and RB Darren Sproles, who both thrived in Payton's system.

Fantasy Tip: Pass-catching backs like Spiller have enjoyed a lot of success in Payton's system. He has a good chance to slide into RB2 territory in PPR formats, and he should make a solid flex option in standard leagues.

Saints | Junior Galette under fire again

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:19:10 -0700

New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette was allegedly shown on video striking a man and a woman with a belt in a video from an apparent brawl on South Beach in 2013. An NFL source said the league is aware of the situation, and Galette is slated to meet with league officials later this month after he was arrested for simple battery involving domestic violence on Jan. 5.

Saints | HC excited to use C.J. Spiller

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:37:51 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller will have plays designed specifically for him in head coach Sean Payton's offense. Payton said he's anxious to see how Spiller fits into the offense with his speed and good hands.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller will assume the role previously held by Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. The aforementioned running backs were all legitimate pass-catching threats in Payton's pass-happy offense. The key for Spiller will be staying healthy after suffering a broken collarbone last season. If he can stay on the field, he has RB2 potential in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston limiting his mileage

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 19:50:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston did not participate in minicamp practice Tuesday, June 16, and it was at least the third session he has missed over the past two weeks. "When you play nine, 10 years in this league at a skill position, mileage is mileage," Colston said. "I'm just kind of in a mode where they want to manage that process throughout the year."

Fantasy Tip: Colston is now two years removed from the 80-catch, 1000-yard plateau, and his receptions and yards have decreased in consecutive seasons. He best years are behind him, and as indicated by his limited participation recently, nagging injuries have taken their toll. At best, Colston could be drafted as a low-end No. 4 wide receiver, but he looks a lot better as your No. 5 or No. 6.
