Saints | Travaris Cadet to see reduced role?

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 19:27:02 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Travaris Cadet will compete with RB Alvin Kamara for the third-down back role while RB Adrian Peterson and RB Mark Ingram serve as the traditional backs, according to beat writer Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: After the Saints traded up for Kamara, he is going to be given a chance to show what he can do. Cadet's value was already limited to deeper PPR formats, and the addition of Kamara likely makes him a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Saints | Alvin Kamara tabbed for third-down role

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 19:12:38 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will be used to create mismatches in the passing game, according to general manager Mickey Loomis. "To fill that role with a player of his caliber, we're pretty excited about it," Loomis said "Obviously, we were. That's why we traded up to get him."

Fantasy Tip: With Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram also in the backfield, Kamara is likely to be relegated to passing downs in 2017. He is worth a late-round flier in PPR formats, but his real value is in keeper leagues.

Saints | New Orleans wanted Patrick Mahomes

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 21:25:26 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was being targeted by the New Orleans Saints with the 11th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: The Chiefs moved up and grabbed Mahomes, who will now be groomed by Andy Reid. He won't have fantasy value in redraft leagues in 2017, but he has tons of arm talent and QB1 upside. Stash him in keeper formats.

Saints | New Orleans add Alvin Kamara

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 18:54:37 -0700

The New Orleans Saints selected Alvin Kamara with the 67th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Kamara joins a prolific offense but a crowded backfield that also features Adrian Peterson and Mark Ingram. If Kamara proves his worth, he could become the lead back in a couple of years, but his value is mainly in keeper leagues for now.

Saints | Mark Ingram fine with Peterson addition

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:49:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is fine with the team's signing of RB Adrian Peterson if his addition helps the team win. Ingram said he expected the team would add another running back and is not concerned about sharing playing time with Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram probably will be the starting running back for the Saints but likely will see less carries than he did in the past. He should still have a role in the passing game in 2017 and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
