New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he has not had contract extension talks with the Saints in the past three months. Brees said he would like to sign an extension at some point before the start of the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: Brees is entering the final year of his contract but will not hold out during training camp. Brees is still one of the better fantasy quarterbacks in the league even though he is 37 years old and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is worth watching in training camp and the preseason. If the rookie can build rapport with Drew Brees, and the club doesn't look outside of the organization for veteran depth, Thomas might be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex option in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

New Orleans Saints S Erik Harris was working in a potato chip factory four years ago, but after landing a job with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League he met Saints CB Delvin Breaux. The latter talked up Harris to everyone in the organization, and the team liked what they saw enough to sign Harris. Now, he has played both safety spots while rotating in with the first-team defense during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp. "He's been a pleasant surprise," head coach Sean Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: Given Ingram's injury issues, Hightower could easily end up starting a few games. Grab him in the later rounds, especially if you are an Ingram owner.

Fantasy Tip: Both Cadet and Lasco can give the Saints help in the passing game, while Murphy helps more as a returner. Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller will likely be the top three backs, though. Whoever backs them up will only be worth a deep flier.

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) received some interest from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the offseason, but the team never made him an offer and are not pushing to sign him at this point, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Boldin should be able to find a team at some point during training camp but probably will not be a major fantasy option in 2016. Owners in all leagues can avoid Boldin during their drafts.

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has been pursued the strongest by the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. Boldin thinks highly of Saints wide receivers coach John Morton, who coached him with the San Francisco 49ers.
Fantasy Tip: The Saints could use a veteran presence at wide receiver with Marques Colston gone, and the connection with Morton makes this possible marriage even more sensible. Signing Boldin would likely decrease the fantasy value of Willie Snead, Coby Fleener, Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman, although probably Thomas and Coleman the most. If this move does come to fruition, Bolding should be viewed as no more than a WR4 in PPR leagues.
