New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees didn't put much stock into the reports the team was looking to trade up to land the No. 1 pick earlier this offseason and said he doesn't plan to retire any time soon.
Fantasy Tip: Brees would usurp Tom Brady in the QB pecking order if Brady's suspension sticks. Brees isn't a top-three quarterback anymore, but he's one of the next QBs to consider.

Memphis QB Paxton Lynch could be an option for the New Orleans Saints in the 2016 NFL Draft. The Saints had talks to move up to No. 1 overall for a quarterback previously. They could be a team to watch to move up into the first half of the first round to grab Lynch.
Fantasy Tip: Lynch is believed to be a couple years away from starting, and he's not an option outside of dynasty leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Brees is at the point in his career where he'll really do anything just to give the Saints the best chance to pursue a championship. Defense could be a big issue for New Orleans again in 2016, but that only means that Brees will likely still be passing frequently. He's a top QB1 again this season.

Updating an earlier report, free-agent WR Robert Meachem (Saints) worked out for the New Orleans Saints Friday, April 22. He ran a 4.48-second 40-yard dash and passed a physical, but he didn't do any field work.
Fantasy Tip: Meachem could be a WR5 in this offense, but it would be a stretch. He still has to sign as well. Keep an eye on him.

Fantasy Tip: Meachem has been out of football since 2014 and never really lived up to his first-round pick status. If he latches on with the Saints, he could inch into the WR5 conversation because of the potential of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Carson Wentz and Jared Goff will be the first two quarterbacks drafted. Lynch is expected to be the third QB taken, though, and it should be in the first round. He'll likely spend his first season acclimating and learning and should not be viewed as a potential starting quarterback in fantasy.
