New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. caught two passes for 36 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Ginn had an outstanding Week 1 performance but has been held to under 40 yards in each of the last four games. Fantasy players may want to keep Ginn on the bench until Drew Brees returns to the lineup.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 37 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He was targeted three times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cook has caught a touchdown in each of the last two weeks but has posted at least 40 yards only once this season. He could be a bye week replacement in some leagues next week but is not a weekly starting option.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 44 yards on eight carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He also caught three passes for 35 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Murray may have had a bigger role in the offense this week since Alvin Kamara entered the game with an injury. Murray will continue to receive a decent amount of touches each game but should not be more than a flex option in deeper leagues against favorable matchups.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 31 yards on 11 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6. He also caught seven passes for 35 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Kamara was questionable for the game and may not have been 100 percent against the Jaguars. He will continue to be a big part of the offense for the Saints and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 24-for-36 for 240 yards and one touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater has been solid since taking over the starting job and probably will receive at least one more start before Drew Brees returns to the lineup. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense next week and probably would only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) is expected to play in Week 6's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, barring a setback, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: Kamara was listed as questionable on the injury report after tweaking his ankle during practice Friday, Oct. 11, although he was a full participant in the walkthrough Saturday, Oct. 12. He should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy leagues if he is active for the game.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Murray should be in uniform for Week 6 and could receive the start depending on Alvin Kamara's status. He can be a flex option if he starts but probably can be avoided if Kamara plays.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Kamara could be a game-time decision for the Week 6 game, so fantasy players should monitor the situation over the next few days. He is one of the focal points on offense for the Saints and is a must-start option if he is active.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) was not seen participating in the open portion of practice Friday, Oct. 11, and head coach Sean Payton declined to elaborate on his status for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Payton and the Saints are one of the league's more buttoned-up teams when it comes to injury info, but two missed practices following a mid-week injury is a definite red flag. See if the Week 6 injury report adds any more clarity, but Kamara owners need to start lining up a contingency plan just in case.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) wants to return prior to the team's Week 9 bye, according to Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson, who writes that Brees has been 'living in the training room' in hopes of an early return. The team, however, appears to be targeting Week 10 for Brees' return.
Huddle Up: Unless things go completely off the rails over the next two weeks it's hard to imagine the Saints bypassing an extra two weeks of recovery time and holding Brees out until after the Week 9 bye. Continue stashing the veteran on your bench.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook posted four grabs for 41 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: Cook had season highs in catches and yardage while finding his first way into the end zone for the first time. It still wasn't a huge line worthy of TE1 status, but it's a start. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Week 6 at Jacksonville.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed seven times for 28 yards in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added two grabs for six yards.
Huddle Up: Murray is a nice change of pace for starter Alvin Kamara, but his fantasy value is severely limited unless something happens to the starter. The Saints travel to meet the Jaguars in Week 6.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 16 times for 62 yards in Week 5 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while he added six grabs for 42 yards on seven targets.
Huddle Up: Kamara was held out of the end zone for the fourth time in five games this season, and he has yet to record a 100-yard rushing performance. Still, he is a fantasy beast with great hands out of the backfield, and it's just a matter of time before that huge fantasy line comes. The Saints travel to Jacksonville in Week 6.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) shared a video to Instragram Saturday, Oct. 5, of him participating in some light throwing drills.
Huddle Up: Brees' thumb appeared to be heavily bandaged and he wasn't taking any sort of contact but it's a positive step toward a potential return to the field. He seems to be on track, if not ahead of schedule, for his initial six-week timetable for recovery.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught three passes (on six targets) for 21 yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Coming off a strong 2018 in Oakland, Cook has been a complete bust over the first month, managing just 90 yards receiving and no TDs in four games. If you can carry Cook on your reserve roster for a while longer, do so. If not, it might be time to move on.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray ran four times for 14 yards in Week 4 against the New Orleans Saints.
Huddle Up: There was a train of thought that, minus Drew Brees, the Saints would turn to a two-headed rushing attack of Alvin Kamara and Murray. It's time to forget about that notion, and keep Murray glued to your bench until we see clear evidence of a sustainably increased role.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran 17 times for 69 yards against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4. He also caught three passes for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Through four weeks, Kamara has two monster games and two relatively modest ones. The absence of Drew Brees is allowing defenses to really focus on Kamara, but he's doing enough with his workload to remain a must play.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater connected on 23 of his 30 passing attempts for 193 yards and an interception against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: After two weeks it's pretty clear the Saints are trying to follow the same script that the 2014/15 Vikings used with Bridgewater: run the ball, play good defense and don't make major mistakes. Unless they fall into a deep hole it seems unlikely the Saints will ask more out of Bridgewater, and that leaves him basically bereft of fantasy appeal.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Cook has not been a big factor in the passing game over the first three weeks and only caught one pass in his first game with Teddy Bridgewater as the starter. Fantasy players may want to keep Cook in the bench until he starts posting better numbers.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (not injury related) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Cook has caught just five passes for an unimpressive 69 yards and no touchdowns through his first three games with the Saints. He's a bottom-tier TE1 who has lost much of his appeal since QB Drew Brees went down to injury.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (non-injury) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Cook has had a disappointing start to the season with only five receptions and 69 yards in three games. He will need to continue to build chemistry with Teddy Bridgewater and could be benched if better options are available.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook managed only one catch on two targets in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Cook has a mere five receptions on 12 targets through three games, hardly what anyone expected when he was signed to a two-year, $15.5 million contract this spring to be the best tight end in New Orleans since Jimmy Graham. While many of his fantasy owners may have no other choice but to continue starting him, he's quickly become a TE2 - something that probably will not change with the Saints likely to play conservatively with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara ran 16 times for 69 yards and a touchdown and caught nine of his 10 targets for 92 yards and another score in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: Kamara showed why he was special in this one, breaking or dodging four potential tackle attempts on a well-executed screen pass into the end zone from 29 yards out late in the first half. He also scored on a 1-yard plunge near the end of the game. Kamara's fantasy owners have to be thrilled with this workload thus far, as he has managed at least 20 touches in two of the first three games. Expect another heavy workload and high-end RB1 production despite a tougher matchup in Week 4 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater went 19-of-27 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks. He added three carries for 12 yards.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater effectively managed the game with Alvin Kamara doing the heavy lifting on offense and the defense/special teams scoring two touchdowns. Somewhat surprisingly, he ceded very few snaps to Taysom Hill in his first start in place of Drew Brees. Bridgewater figures to receive a stiffer test and will be no better than a middling QB2 option next week at home against Dallas Cowboys.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater is expected to get the starting nod for Week 3's game against the Seattle Seahawks, although QB Taysom Hill is likely to see some action during the game as well.
Huddle Up: Bridgewater is the better bet this week as far as streaming fantasy options go, while the bulk of Hill's action is likely to come in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (thigh) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Ginn was not targeted in the Week 2 game and will be working with Teddy Bridgewater this week, so he may take a hit in terms of his fantasy value. He could be a flex option because of his big play ability, but fantasy players can also keep him on the bench if they have better options.

New Orleans Saints WR Ted Ginn Jr. (thigh) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 19..
Huddle Up: Ginn likely will lose some fantasy value because of the change at quarterback but is still a big play threat. He could be a flex option in some leagues but could be benched if better options are available.
