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.

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.

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 NFL.com. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram missed a few practices this offseason but does not appear to be dealing with any serious injuries. He should see a good amount of carries this season but probably will lose some playing time to the other running backs on the roster. Ingram could be a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.
