New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees is a player that the Saints want to keep as long as he wants to keep playing, according to general manager Mickey Loomis.
Huddle Up: Brees will be a free agent this offseason, but the Saints will try to re-sign him. He finished with 2,979 yards and 27 touchdowns in the regular season and can be considered a No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues in 2020.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara could hold out in hopes of securing a long-term contract extension, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Triplett, who notes that the team's other top contributors from the 2017 draft class can have their fifth-year options picked up, whereas Kamara is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season. Triplett also mentions that valuing Kamara may be difficult because despite his versatility he only plays about two-thirds of the team's offensive snaps.
Huddle Up: This is pure speculation at this point, but Triplett lays out a compelling case for a contractual impasse. It's just something to file away and keep an eye on once the offseason kicks into high gear.

New Orleans Saints impending free-agent QB Drew Brees is expected to talk with head coach Sean Payton Monday, Jan. 13, and Payton said he expects Brees to be the Saints quarterback next season.
Huddle Up: Brees played in only 11 regular season games this season but still ranked in the top five in the NFL with 27 touchdowns. He is still a solid quarterback despite his age and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in leagues if he returns to the Saints.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees declined to make any comment on his future in the wake of the team's Wild Card loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 5. Brees turns 41 later this month and is set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Huddle Up: Brees played well, posting a 27-to-4 TD:INT ratio despite missing five full games and most of another, but his season once again ended in playoff disappointment. It's possible Brees could retire, or the team might ask Teddy Bridgewater, who went 5-0 as a starter, or even Taysom Hill to become the new QB1 regardless of what Brees elects to do. It should make for an interesting offseason.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has six touchdowns in his last six games, and he is averaging 71.7 receiving yards per game during that span.
Huddle Up: After a slow start to his time in New Orleans, Cook has been locked in down the stretch. He should be treated as one of the premier fantasy tight ends for playoff contests.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees threw 15 touchdowns and zero interceptions during four December games, throwing at least three touchdowns in all four contests.
Huddle Up: Brees and company have averaged 36.3 points per game since Week 10, and he's been carving up defenses heading into a Wild Card matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. He is arguably the top fantasy quarterback available for playoff contests this weekend.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (knee) is dealing with knee inflammation, and he's fine, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Huddle Up: The Saints have playoff positioning to play for, and the Carolina Panthers are a midrange matchup. However, they have allowed 28 touchdowns to running backs this season and may not make the game competitive enough to throw very often. Brees is a low-end QB1 with that in mind.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook posted three receptions for 84 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Cook came up huge in the championship week in a majority of fantasy leagues, especially at a position which is rather light. The Saints will wrap up the regular season in Carolina in Week 17.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 11 times for 80 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans, his first multi-score game of the 2019 season. He also added six grabs for 30 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: This is the type of game fantasy owners have expected all season. If you made it to your championship game despite the frequent goose eggs in the touchdown column from Kamara, congrats. He and the Saints wrap up the regular season in Carolina in Week 17.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 27-of-38 passes for 279 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 16 against the Tennessee Titans.
Huddle Up: Brees and the Saints went outdoors and got it done. Remember when that used to be an issue? It's not anymore. The Saints wrap up the regular season in Carolina in Week 17.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill posted two receptions for 42 yards and a touchdown while running twice for one yard in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Hill is a Swiss Army Knife capable of doing a little bit of everything, but his fantasy appeal remains rather minimal. The Saints travel to meet the Titans in Week 16.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith posted just one catch in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts but it was good for a 21-yard touchdown.
Huddle Up: Smith hasn't posted big numbers, but he does have scores in back-to-back games, and three of the past four outings. He'll look to keep up the scoring ways in Week 16 at Tennessee, but he remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook finished with four grabs for 54 yards on his four targets in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Cook was unable to carry over the momentum from last week's two-score performance. He still has six scores over the past eight outings. He'll travel to meet the Titans in Week 16, and he remains more of a low-end TE1 or high-end TE2 in most fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed nine times for 29 yards in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added two grabs for 20 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Murray had double-digit touches, but as long as Alvin Kamara is healthy his fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Saints travel to Tennessee in Week 16.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 14 times for 66 yards and he added five receptions for 23 yards in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: It was expected Kamara would absolutely blow up this season with Mark Ingram out of the way, but he has a total of just one rushing touchdown, one receiving score and he hasn't topped 100 total scrimmage yards in the past three games.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 29-of-30 passes for 307 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday, Dec. 16. He now sits atop the NFL's all-time list for touchdown passes in a career with 540, one ahead of Peyton Manning, and two ahead of current New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. He also set a record the single-game completion percentage record at 96.7.
Huddle Up: Records are wonderful, but fantasy owners are more concerned with what's going on now. He has nine touchdown passes over the past two games with one rushing score, and he has three or more TD strikes in five of his past seven outings. That's fantasy gold, even at age 40 he continues to do big things.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) practiced in full again Saturday, Dec. 14, and was taken off the Week 15 injury report.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: Cook needs to be cleared by the doctors before he is allowed to play, so fantasy players need to keep an eye on the situation. He can be a starting option in fantasy leagues but is a risky option since the Saints play on Monday Night Football.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 13 times for 25 yards and caught four of six targets for 18 yards vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: The star back hasn't scored since Week 3 and has touchdowns in that game only. He has has maintained double-digit PPR production in every game from Week 3 through Week 13 before this week's potential season-ending clunker. Should gamers have survived, he faces the Colts in Week 15 -- a defense that has been been stout of late vs. running backs of all types.

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith snagged two of his four targets for 29 yards and a touchdown vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Smith missed so much time this year with ankle injury and was set back because of it. He how has scores in two of his last three but has no more than a pair of catches in any of the last five appearances. That kind of involvement is of no use in fantasy playoff lineups.

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught four passes for 50 yards on six targets vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8.
Huddle Up: Ginn is merely a flier for a cheap touchdown most weeks. With so much at stake in Week 15, he's no better than a weak flex vs. Indy. The Colts gave up six WR scores in the five games entering Week 14 before allowing a trio of TDs to the position against the Bucs.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed seven times for 69 yards vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He added two receptions for 25 yards on three looks.
Huddle Up: The Saints face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15. A defined role, and the way Alvin Kamara has played in 2019, makes Murray a reasonable play for gamers seeking a touchdown opportunity. The disparity in efficiency is becoming too large to ignore, and Murray has worked his way into weekly flex territory.

Huddle Up: The Indianapolis Colts are ahead, and while they have played pretty well vs. quarterbacks of late, Brees is capable of decimating the best of 'em. He remains a strong fantasy option in all settings.
