New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray played 41 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 17, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Alvin Karmara played 61 percent.
Huddle Up: Murray also carried the ball 10 times but for just 27 yards in the victory. This was expected to be the case for the entire season with Murray getting a heavy workload in favorable game scripts for the Saints before QB Drew Brees and Kamara each missed time. Expect him to finish the season with a significant role behind Kamara, and he'll warrant flex consideration in the most appealing matchups.

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught two passes for 14 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. He was targeted four times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ginn has not posted more than 50 yards in any game since Week 1 and has been targeted only 10 times over the last three games. He will see a handful of targets next week but can be benched in most leagues.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught two passes for 33 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. He was targeted two times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cook has caught a touchdown in three of the last four games but has been held to under 45 yards in three of those games. He likely will continue to be a red zone target and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end next week.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 27 yards on 10 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. He also caught two passes for five yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Murray has been quiet since Alvin Kamara has rejoined the lineup but will still see some touches on offense moving forward. He probably can be benched next week because of the tough matchup.

Huddle Up: Kamara posted his second-best rushing game of the season this week and has caught 18 of his 20 targets over the last two weeks. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week against the Carolina Panthers.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara will be 'unleashed' more against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11, according to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Kamara logged four carries and had eight receptions in his return from knee and ankle injuries, and another week to heal up should only result in more work for the versatile back. He tallied 104 total yards against the Buccaneers back in Week 5, and Kamara will have his typical RB1 upside in the rematch.

Huddle Up: Ginn has posted more than two receptions in only two of his eight games this season but has been targeted at least five times in five of those games. He will have a favorable matchup next week and could be a flex option in some deeper leagues because of his big play ability.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught six passes for 74 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cook returned to the lineup after being sidelined for a few weeks and had his best game of the season. He should have a bigger role in the passing game during the second half of the season and can be a No. 1 fantasy tight end next week.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 12 yards on five carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10. He also caught two passes for seven yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Saints had only 11 rushing attempts during the game, so Murray did not have a big role in the offense this week. He will be facing one of the best run defenses next week in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could be benched if fantasy players have better options available.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 32-for-45 for 287 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.
Huddle Up: Brees has been held without a touchdown pass in two of his four games this season but should have more success next week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues in Week 11.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees faces the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10, and the Falcons have allowed the third most passing touchdowns this season while ranking last in both sacks and takeaways.
Huddle Up: Brees torched the Arizona Cardinals in his return from a thumb injury last week, throwing for 373 yards and three scores. He will have plenty of upside again in Week 10 against a struggling Atlanta defense. Brees is a must-start QB1.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray will continue to have a big role in the offense against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10 despite the return of RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee), according to head coach Sean Payton. 'Week 1 of Alvin coming back,' Payton said. 'We'll be smart.'
Huddle Up: Murray proved he is more than capable of shouldering the load in Kamara's absence, delivering a pair of 100-yard rushing efforts. Even with Kamara back, Murray should be a strong flex option against the Falcons.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Kamara should receive most of the work at running back this week, but Latavius Murray should also have a role in the offense. Kamara should be involved in the running and passing game against the Atlanta Falcons and is a must-start option in all leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is ready to return in Week 10 after a two-game, three-week absence and said he would be happy to share the workload with fellow RB Latavius Murray who shined in Kamara's absence. 'It's not like I'm selfish. I don't need the ball every play,' Kamara said. 'He's fully capable, too. So I think we'll get a good balance going, and it will be hard to stop.'
Huddle Up: Murray averaged only 6.8 touches per contest in the six games Kamara has played, but he'll need a few more going forward to have true standalone fantasy value. In the the meantime, Murray is a must-own handcuff for those who own Kamara and a high-upside bench stash for those who don't.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) will continue to wear the splint on his thumb for a while, the quarterback said Wednesday, Nov. 6. He had no adverse effects or swelling after his first game back, however.
Huddle Up: Brees rolled up 373 passing yards and three touchdowns while completing 79.1 percent of his pass attempts in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals in his first game back since Week 2. The splint didn't affect his performances, so fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about its presence. He faces a favorable matchups against the defensively-challenged Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.
