Fri, 09 Dec 2016 18:33:39 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Ingram has been productive despite splitting snaps, but he will be a low-end RB2 in Week 14 against a suddenly stingy Tampa Bay defense.

Thu, 08 Dec 2016 20:27:45 -0800
Fantasy Tip: After logging a limited session the previous day, the fact that he didn't take the field Thursday makes Ingram's status worth keeping an eye on. He will be a low-end RB2 in Week 14 if he suits up.
Thu, 08 Dec 2016 18:50:00 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Ingram has been able to play through the injury, but he is a low-end RB2 in Week 14 against a Tampa Bay defense allowing just 13.3 points per game over the last four.
Thu, 08 Dec 2016 18:43:56 -0800
Fantasy Tip: If Thomas is unable to play in Week 14, Brandin Cooks would become one of the top plays at receiver, and Willie Snead would become a viable WR3.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (fibula), LB Craig Robertson (shoulder), C Max Unger (foot) and OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 8. RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring), OT Senio Kelemete (hip) and OT Zach Strief (elbow) were limited participants.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (fibula) and LB Craig Robertson (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 7. C Max Unger (foot), OT Terron Armstead (knee, quadriceps), RB Daniel Lasco (hamstring), OG Senio Kelemete (hip) and OT Zach Strief (elbow) were limited.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram was limited last week, too, but that didn't keep him from playing. He and Tim Hightower figure to continue to split playing time out of the backfield. Their matchup is tough this week, though, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have only yielded one rushing touchdown to the position over their last five games.
Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:59:29 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Thomas will be a key name to keep an eye on in the coming days. If he misses practice again over the next day or two then there will be good cause for worry. Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead turn into a WR1 and WR3, respectively, if Thomas is inactive, while Coby Fleener is a sleeper start either way.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 09:38:22 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Since Hill was beginning to emerge as the starter in recent weeks, it is fair to assume Coby Fleener will likely see regular snap counts for the remainder of the season. Considering the factors causing Fleener's struggles this season are more internal than external, there's no guarantee more playing time will help him because a more consistent fantasy asset. He can be left on the bench for the fantasy playoffs.

New Orleans Saints TE Josh Hill (leg) needed help off the field after it appeared tacklers rolled over his lower right leg following a pass catch in the second quarter. Hill was taken to the locker room, and no immediate update was available on his condition.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw 31-of-44 for 326 yards but was intercepted three times in a 28-13 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was the first time in 60 home games for the Saints that Brees did not throw a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Brees is just like any other quarterback in the NFL, due for a lackluster game now and then. This may have been the game. His overall stats were good (three-fourths of his passes completed), but the interceptions hurt. Brees is still a strong QB1 due to his yardage and touchdown numbers.
