Saints | Drew Brees optimistic about future

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 15:53:58 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said 2014 was the most frustrating season of his career, but remained optimistic about the team's future. "I think we've identified the problems or the things that got us beat or the things that didn't allow us to be as good as we know we can be, and we have the solution to fix it," Brees said. "It's going to take a lot of work, but I know we can get it done."

Fantasy Tip: Brees still threw for 4,952 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2014. He's proven to be one of the most consistent quarterbacks in fantasy football and real football. Consider him No. 1 quarterback option next season, as usual.

Saints | Jimmy Graham ruling out surgery?

Mon, 26 Jan 2015 19:18:15 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) caught three passes for 30 yards and two scores in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 25, and when asked if his performance would rule out surgery, he said, "It should, which is really exciting."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's comments aren't a guarantee that he will avoid going under the knife, but it is certainly a good sign. If healthy, he is the second-best option at the tight end spot for fantasy owners.

Saints | Jimmy Graham might avoid surgery

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 07:25:51 -0800

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (shoulder) said he'll rehabilitate his shoulder injury after the Pro Bowl, but he hasn't made a final decision on surgery. "It's something we talked about and is something that's still being debated," Graham said. "This is kind of a trial to see where I'm at. I've had three weeks off and I've finally had some time to heal. It feels great, and I'm going to continue to do my rehab and get back to 100%."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will likely be one of the top two tight ends to target again in traditional drafts next season if intrusive surgery isn't required.

Saints | Mark Ingram wants to return to Saints

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 15:37:31 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram, who will be eligible for free agency this offseason, wants to return to the team next year, and he thinks the interest is mutual. Ingram ran for 964 yards on 226 attempts and nine touchdowns last year, which were all career highs. His 74.2 yards per game ranked him eighth in the league.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints said late last season that they were prepared to let Ingram test the free-agent waters, so we'll have to wait and see what happens. If he doesn't return, Khiry Robinson could be in line for some nice fantasy success in New Orleans. If Ingram returns, he should be expected to remain the lead back in a backfield that would remain crowded.

Saints | Marques Colston may be asked for pay cut

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 11:22:07 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take a pay cut this offseason, because he is scheduled to make $7 million in 2015 and count $9.7 million against the salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Colston will be back with the Saints next season, but probably be a starting option for most teams in the league if he is released. Colston saw his receptions and receiving drop for the second straight year, but could still help fantasy teams as a low-end No. 2 or No. 3 receiver next season.

Saints | Khiry Robinson missed opportunity

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 07:17:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson was slated to have his role increased before he suffered a fractured forearm midseason.

Fantasy Tip: With Mark Ingram an unrestricted free agent, Robinson and Pierre Thomas could enter 2015 in a platoon. Both would be RB3 targets in traditional drafts, but Robinson could sneak into the RB2 range due to his youth and potential for a featured role.

Saints | Drew Brees going to Pro Bowl

Fri, 09 Jan 2015 14:45:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees will play in the 2015 Pro Bowl in place of Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger (neck).

Fantasy Tip: Brees nearly threw for 5,000 yards for the fourth consecutive year but finished with 4.952 yards. He has thrown for at least 30 touchdowns in seven straight years and should have most of his weapons in the passing game back for 2015. Owners should consider Brees as a No. 1 quarterback in their drafts next season.
