Saints | Michael Thomas taken by New Orleans

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 17:24:45 -0700

The New Orleans Saints selected Ohio State WR Michael Thomas with the No. 47 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas doesn't have a ton of speed but he has the physical nature that should play well in the NFL, and he has after-the-catch abilities. He'll likely serve as depth in New Orleans behind Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead, and Thomas could become a nice red zone option for Drew Brees. His opportunities might be few and far between in his rookie year, though, so he's more of a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

Saints | Drew Brees not close to the end

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 06:59:12 -0700

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.

"It wouldn't be the first time that I've been on a team where they took a quarterback in the first round to come take my position and I would take the exact same approach now that I did then, which is, it's my team, it's my job," Brees said. "I don't think there's any use in talking about it because I doubt it would happen. And if it did, I trust our organization. I trust Mickey (Loomis) and Sean (Payton). If there's somebody there that you feel like is going to be the future of our organization for years to come, then take him, but I don't plan on giving up my job anytime 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.

Saints | NOLA in on Paxton Lynch?

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 07:07:45 -0700

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.

Saints | Drew Brees wanted Josh Norman

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:04:49 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees was willing to amend his contract in order to acquire Washington Redskins CB Josh Norman.

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.

Saints | Robert Meachem works out for Saints

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 11:54:48 -0700

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.

Saints | Robert Meachem to try out for Saints

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 23:33:49 -0700

Free-agent WR Robert Meachem (Saints) will work out for the New Orleans Saints Friday, April 22, according to a source.

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.
