New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not participate in practice Saturday, Oct. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Marquez Callaway should be the main option in the passing game with Harris out of the lineup and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: It looks like Harris may be a long shot to play in the Week 7 game, but fantasy players will know more in the next day or two. He is a risky option since the Saints do not play until Monday Night Football, so players may want to bench him this week.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: It is not known if Harris is being eased back into practice or if he is still dealing with the hamstring injury. Fantasy players should know more about the situation in a few days but may want to keep Harris on the bench this week.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught four of his eight targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in a 33-22 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Callaway has been able to deliver some big plays, but he has yet to have more than four receptions in a game. With the potential returns of Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith looming, Callaway is only going to become a riskier option.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 16 times for 71 yards and a touchdown and caught five of his eight targets for 51 yards and a score in a 33-22 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 5.
Huddle Up: A week after being held without a catch, Kamara had a season-high five grabs. His role in the passing game has dipped a bit this year, but he never been busier on the ground.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston completed 15 of his 30 passes for 279 yards, four touchdowns and an interception and lost a fumble in a 33-22 win over the Washington Football Team in Week 5. He added six rushes for 26 yards.
Huddle Up: Winston is up to 12 touchdown passes, but nine of them have come in two games. He has been able to cut down on his turnovers, but he continues to be a boom-or-bust fantasy option.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see how long Harris may be sidelined. He can be a deep threat for the Saints but probably can be avoided in fantasy leagues most weeks.

New Orleans Saints RB Tony Jones Jr. (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for three to four weeks with the ankle injury he suffered in Week 4 against the New York Giants, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Jones is theoretically one of the better handcuff options available in fantasy, but the Saints' slow-paced offense so far in 2021 isn't allowing him to enjoy the same kind of workload that Latavius Murray enjoyed in a similar role over the previous two seasons. Managers of Alvin Kamara may want to roll the dice on picking up Dwayne Washington and possibly Ty Montgomery off waivers if they want to protect their investment.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed two of his three passes for nine yards and an interception, rushed six times for 28 yards and two touchdowns and caught both of his targets for 26 yards in a 27-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants in Week 4.
Huddle Up: While Hill is a versatile weapon for the Saints, he is more of a nuisance for Alvin Kamara owners than a useful fantasy option in his own right.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught both of his targets for 74 yards in a 27-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Callaway did most of his damage on a 58-yard reception, and although he has shown some big-play potential, his overall numbers have left a lot of be desired. He is a risky flex play, at best, and his value figures to disappear whenever Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith return.

New Orleans Saints TE Juwan Johnson caught two of his three targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in a 27-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants in Week 4.
Huddle Up: It was Johnson's third score of the year, but with just six catches for 64 yards in four games, he is a completely touchdown-dependent fantasy play.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 26 times for 120 yards in a 27-21 overtime loss to the New York Giants in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Kamara had his best rushing performance of the season, but he also failed to catch pass, and Taysom Hill vultured a couple of touchdowns. Kamara will offer RB1 upside every week, but it looks like his receiving numbers are going to suffer with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 1, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Winston has not thrown for a lot of yards this season but is tied for sixth in the NFL with seven touchdown passes. He can be a starting option in some two-quarterback leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Winston has thrown seven touchdowns in three games this season but has only 387 passing yards total in those games. He should have success against the New York Giants but probably is only a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Winston had a bounce back game last week but still has not thrown for more than 148 yards in any game this season. He should have success against the New York Giants this week but probably is only an option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints TEs Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson each saw one catchless target in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Neither guy is a lineup fixture by any means, but both have come with a bit of upside at different points in the last few months. Week 4 should be quite telling, especially for Johnson, who was a Week 1 darling with two touchdown grabs. One more week of invisibility makes both players better suited for the wire (if they aren't already).

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris landed all three targets for 31 yards in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Harris is more or less a gadget player with enough speed and wiggle to occasionally make a splash in fantasy. He's only a DFS value gamble with the rare matchup utility in redraft settings.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught four of five targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Sean Payton probably scolded Jameis Winston in private for such an ill-advised throw, but it worked out in the team's favor. In Week 4, New Orleans returns to their actual home turf, and Callaway faces a fairly strong Giants secondary. He is a fringe starter in redraft formats.

New Orleans Saints RB Tony Jones Jr. ran twice for 12 yards in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He added 10 yards after catching both targets.
Huddle Up: Any excitement from the late fantasy draft season surrounding Jones' promotion to RB2 has faded. The Saints hardly have utilized him in 2021, and until he sees consistent action, he's merely a stash as Alvin Kamara's handcuff.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran 24 times for 89 yards in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He added three receptions for 29 yards and a TD.
Huddle Up: On to Week 4 we go when the Saints finally return to New Orleans and face the New York Giants. Kamara is a sound RB1 in all PPR formats next week, but it might look something like this game where he has to earn every yard.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill ran six times for 32 yards and a touchdown in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: The only thing really to say here is it is a shame gamers still have to worry about Hill stealing rushing touchdown chances from Alvin Kamara. Hill has no value in traditional formats and is merely a wild guess play in DFS.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston threw for 128 yards, two touchdown and no interceptions on 13-for-21 passing in Week 3, at the New England Patriots, on Sunday, Sept. 26. He added four yards on five attempts and was sacked three times.
Huddle Up: The battle of good vs. bad Jameis actually has a middle ground. Who would have thought? Winston wasn't asked to do much for the second time in three weeks, and it resulted in another Saints win ... sensing a trend that may forecast Winston's role going forward? The New York Giants come to New Orleans for a real home game in Week 4, and the former Buccaneer is a backup in 12-team, single-QB formats.

New Orleans Saints TE Juwan Johnson caught one pass for 23 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Johnson had a two-touchdown performance last week but was held to one catch against the Panthers. He likely will see a handful of targets next week but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Deonte Harris caught one pass for nine yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He was targeted two times during the game.
Huddle Up: Harris led the team in receiving in the first game of the season was not a big factor in the passing game this week. He likely will continue to be one of the main receivers for the Saints for now but is not a strong fantasy option.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for five yards on eight carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He also caught four passes for 25 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: The Saints struggled on offense against Carolina which let to Kamara only receiving 12 touches. He should have a better performance next week and will still be a starting option in all leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston went 11-for-22 for 111 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2. He also rushed for 19 yards and one touchdown on three carries.
Huddle Up: Winston posted a five-touchdown performance last week but did not find success against the Panthers. He has thrown for under 150 yards in both games this season and has 42 pass attempts in those games. He will face the New England Patriots next week and probably should only be an option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 2, and he has scored multiple touchdowns in five straight meetings with Carolina, logging at least 20 touches in all five games.
Huddle Up: Kamara logged 23 touches and found the end zone in the opener against Green Bay, and a similar performance is probably his floor against Carolina. He is a good bet to finish as a RB1 in Week 2.

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Sept. 14.
Huddle Up: This has very little bearing on his fantasy status, as he was already stashed on the Physically Unable to Perform list before the season. Assuming he is deemed nothing more than a close contact or ends up being asymptomatic, Thomas should be ready to go sometime after the team's Week 6 bye if his ankle rehab stays on track.

New Orleans Saints TE Juwan Johnson caught all three of his targets for 21 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-3 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: One game is a small sample, but Johnson could be emerging as Winston's go-to target in the red zone. Cameron Brate became a viable fantasy play in the same role for Winston in Tampa Bay, so Johnson could be worth a look if you need tight end help.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 20 times for 83 yards and caught three passes for eight yards and a touchdown in a 38-3 win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Huddle Up: His three catches did little to quiet concerns that his receiving numbers will suffer without Drew Brees under center, but the Saints didn't have to throw the ball much overall after jumping out to a big lead. He still saw a sizeable workload and should continue to be one of the busier backs in the league.
