Saints | Ted Ginn to be No. 3 WR

Sun, 16 Jul 2017 15:39:56 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. will be the team's No. 3 receiver this season and can also be used as a kick or punt returner.

Fantasy Tip: Ginn posted at least 700 yards in each of the last two seasons but could improve those numbers as part of the Saints offense in 2017. He should receive plenty of playing time this season and could be at least a No. 4 fantasy receiver.

Saints | Mark Ingram perfect as a red zone receiver

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 19:35:38 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram hauled in all 10 of his targets inside the 20 last season, making him only one of five players with at least five such targets to catch every one.

Fantasy Tip: Adrian Peterson has made a lot of noise recently about proving himself as a receiver, but Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara are better equipped to handle that work. With that said, at least 22 percent of the Saints' targets have been directed at the running back position over the last 10 seasons, and the average during the span is 26 percent. In short, there should be plenty of opportunities for all three backs to get their fill of catches. Ingram should be considered a high-upside RB3.

Saints | Naysayers motivate Adrian Peterson

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 15:07:25 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is motivated by those who doubt his age, ability, health, etc. "I'd be lying to say [the doubt] doesn't [motivate me]," Peterson said. "You want to do things people say you can't do."

Fantasy Tip: There is credence to the doubt surrounding Peterson. At 32 years old, Peterson has missed almost two full seasons in the last three years. He'll be splitting playing time with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to boot. Nonetheless, he is Adrian Peterson, after all. View him as a flex option in a high-scoring, high-flying offense.

Saints | Adrian Peterson eyes 500 receiving yards

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 09:06:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has had more than 400 receiving yards only once in his career, but he is shooting for 500 in 2017. "I was attracted to playing with (Drew) Brees, a guy who is good at distributing the ball to different players. I know in this system, I'll get some opportunities to catch the ball in space. Drew Brees, he'll get the ball to me," Peterson said.

Fantasy Tip: Brees loves throwing to his running backs, but 500 receiving yards is a big ask in a backfield which also has Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and maybe even Travaris Cadet vying for touches. Peterson will be fortunate to top 1,000 total yards this season, and owners should be thrilled if he can give them roughly 750 yards rushing and 350 receiving to go along with eight to 10 touchdowns. He's on the RB2 borderline and probably should be drafted as a RB3.

Saints | Adrian Peterson to see 150 carries?

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 08:14:29 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is likely on tap for 150 carries, according to Saints color commentator Deuce McAllister. "If he gets (about 150 carries), he'll get probably 700 to 1,000 yards," McAllister said. Peterson is keeping his weight between 215 and 219 pounds with 6 percent body fat. Peterson, who has totaled more than 400 receiving yards once, said he'd like to tally 500 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: It's important not to get overhyped about the 32-year-old's aspirations. He is a freak of nature, but very few backs have been this productive at his age. They also have Pro Bowler Mark Ingram and third-rounder Alvin Kamara, who projects as a Darren Sproles type. Peterson is an RB3 in fantasy that could receive a boost in this dynamic offense if everything goes right.

Saints | Michael Thomas can make his mark

Tue, 04 Jul 2017 16:02:31 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas can become the seventh wide receiver in NFL history to achieve 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns over his first two seasons. The other players to accomplish this feat are former NFL WRs Dave Parks, Randy Moss, John Jefferson, Bob Hayes, Bill Groman and New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas was easily the best rookie receiver last year and is now the No. 1 wide receiver in New Orleans with the departure of Brandin Cooks. The Saints pass a ton, so don't be surprised to see Thomas make history in 2017. He's a low-end WR1 option heading into his sophomore season.

Saints | Drew Brees chasing completions record

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 14:19:48 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is 465 completions away from breaking former NFL QB Brett Favre's all-time completions record of 6,300. Brees is capable of breaking the record in 2017 as he has completed more than 465 passes in one season on two different occasions (2011 and 2016).

Fantasy Tip: Brees will have more than his fair share of NFL records if he can stay healthy for the next couple seasons. He's arguably the most consistent fantasy quarterback in NFL history and should be one of the first quarterbacks taken in drafts again this year.

Saints | Alvin Kamara working as receiver

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 18:17:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara spent time working with the receivers during OTAs.

Fantasy Tip: Kamara seems like a safe bet to see time as the third-down back, but if he also lines up as a receiver, it would boost his fantasy stock. For now, consider him a RB5 in PPR formats with plenty of upside in keeper leagues.
