New Orleans Saints RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) and OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and have been ruled out for Week 13. C Senio Kelemete (hip), TE John Phillips (ankle) and OT Zach Strief (knee) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He likely will share snaps with Tim Hightower if he plays in the game but can be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It bodes well for the possibility he will suit up Week 13 against the Detroit Lions, although Tim Hightower is a good bet to receive more touches given the nature of Ingram's injury. Ingram is a high-upside RB2 in what has quickly become a very good rushing attack, while Hightower is more a lower-end RB2 option.

New Orleans Saints OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) and RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 1. OG Senio Kelemete (hip), TE John Phillips (ankle) and OT Zach Strief (knee) were limited.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's availability is starting to get worrisome. If he's able to practice tomorrow it would be a sigh of relief, but be prepared to fire up Tim Hightower incase Ingram can't take the field.

Fantasy Tip: It's early in the week, so don't go into panic mode just yet. He has a few more days to practice, and even if he's limited that will be a good sign for him being able to play this weekend. If he cannot play then Tim Hightower would immediately become one of the best sleeper starts and value plays for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see Drew Brees and the Saints make a concerted effort to get Cooks the ball in Week 13. It might be easy to want to bench him this week after not being targeted last week, but the Saints and Detroit Lions could be involved in a shootout. You won't want Cooks on your bench if that occurs.

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not see a single target in a Week 12 rout of the Los Angeles Rams - a fact head coach Sean Payton suggested was "the result of some coverages". "There were certainly calls with his name and number on it, and periodically once in a while that (being held without a target) can happen," Payton said.
Fantasy Tip: There's no question the emergence of rookie Michael Thomas has played a role in it, but Cooks has been extremely hit-or-miss this season and required touchdowns to save his fantasy day. The third-year wideout has topped five catches and/or 66 yards only once since Week 6, falling below his season yards-per-catch average of 14.4 five times over that six-game span. As a result, Cooks is quickly fading into low-end WR2 territory.

Fantasy Tip: There was no word on whether Cooks suffered some kind of injury, or if he was simply blanketed by the Rams causing Drew Brees to have to look elsewhere. Either way, it was an ugly goose egg of his legion of fantasy owners in a key week of action.

Fantasy Tip: Snead caught five passes for 38 yards, so if it hadn't been for that razzle-dazzle touchdown pass Snead would have had a bad day. Don't count on this play happening too much more, but Snead is ordinarily a decent threat for fantasy points. Snead is one of Drew Brees' many targets, so his numbers may go up and down.

Fantasy Tip: The Ohio State rookie wideout is having one heck of a first year in the NFL. Thomas has seven touchdown catches and close to 800 yards through 11 games, which could put him in contention for postseason awards. Thomas is a decent WR2 or WR3 play on your fantasy roster, as he is finding his way through a crowded Saints receiving game.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was knocked out in the team's last game against the Carolina Panthers, so to see him snap back after 10 days is very encouraging. He added a third touchdown on a 21-yard pass completion from Drew Brees, so Ingram can definitely be used in flex status as a RB/WR.
Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:25:36 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Brees hasn't fallen below 4,000 passing yards since 2005, and he's just shy of 3,600 yards now so Brees should reach that mark barring injury. Brees is a strong QB1 with 30 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.
