Saints | Mark Ingram fine with Peterson addition

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:49:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is fine with the team's signing of RB Adrian Peterson if his addition helps the team win. Ingram said he expected the team would add another running back and is not concerned about sharing playing time with Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram probably will be the starting running back for the Saints but likely will see less carries than he did in the past. He should still have a role in the passing game in 2017 and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Saints | Adrian Peterson will have clear role

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 15:36:11 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson will blend well with fellow RB Mark Ingram and will have a clear role in the Saints' offense, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: That role remains unclear for now, but we are in the beginning stages of the offseason. Peterson has plenty of time to get used to his new offense and the like. The likeliest scenario is that Peterson will serve as more of a ground-and-pound back, while Ingram plays more of a pass-catching role (96 catches the last two years). Ingram does have the most fantasy appeal of the two, but his value clearly takes a hit with Peterson there. That said, view Ingram as an RB2 and Peterson as an RB3.

Saints | Adrian Peterson terms

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 05:41:21 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson landed a two-year, $7 million deal. He's guaranteed $3.5 million in 2017, which includes a $1 million salary and a $2.5 million signing bonus. The 2018 compensation is $3.5 million, and none of which is guaranteed. It includes $2.4 million in total roster bonuses (which includes a $750,000 roster bonus earned on third day of free agency plus $1.65 million in per-game roster bonuses), a $1.05 million salary and a $50,000 workout bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will be the 1B fiddle to Mark Ingram, and neither back should be valued higher than an RB2 if both backs remain healthy. Peterson falls into the RB3 range because he doesn't catch many passes and is 32 years old.

Saints | Adrian Peterson joining Saints

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 05:12:40 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the New Orleans Saints Tuesday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson isn't expected to be the lead back with Mark Ingram expected to serve in that role. However, Peterson's presence will hurt Ingram's fantasy prowess as no more than an RB2. As for AD, he's little more than an RB3 in this situation. Both backs have a lengthy injury history of late, and if one went down, the other would benefit in a big way.

Saints | Mark Ingram will be the starter

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 13:56:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram would still be the lead running back even if free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) signed with the Saints, according to The New Orleans Advocate's Nick Underhill.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram's stock would take a hit, but he will remain the Saints' most appealing fantasy running back if the Peterson signing does come to fruition. As stated earlier, Ingram and Peterson should be viewed as an RB2 and RB3, respectively, if they are both healthy and if Peterson signs.

Saints | Adrian Peterson nearing deal with Saints

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 12:41:50 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is coming close to a deal with the New Orleans Saints that would pay him $3 million this year, according to sources. The deal is not done, but it is looking optimistic.

Fantasy Tip: This move would definitely put a damper on Mark Ingram's fantasy value. Ingram has RB1 upside, but the addition of Peterson would put him into RB2 territory at least, although, Ingram could be used in more of a pass-catching role in this case. He has shown receiving prowess in previous seasons (96 catches the last two seasons). As for Peterson, he would be no more than an RB3 candidate at 32 years old and after missing nearly two full seasons in the last three years.

Saints | Malcolm Butler trade 'deadline' looming?

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 08:06:43 -0700

New England Patriots CB Malcolm Butler is either going to get traded to the New Orleans Saints this week or probably not at all, according to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss, who believes a deal will essentially come down to whether the Saints are willing to trade their late first-round pick (No. 32) or a different package of a high second-rounder (No. 42) combined with another pick.
