New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) practiced in full again Saturday, Dec. 14, and was taken off the Week 15 injury report.
Huddle Up: Cook is a top-flight TE1 due to his red-zone usage in the second half of the season. He has four touchdowns over his last four games.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (elbow) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 14, and has been taken off the Week 15 injury report.
Huddle Up: Brees is good to go as a mid-tier QB1 against the Indianapolis Colts Monday, Dec. 16.

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 QB Drew Brees (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13.
Huddle Up: Brees has thrown 12 touchdowns in the last four weeks and is one of the top quarterbacks at the moment. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: It's promising to see Cook on the practice field. He'll still need to pass the league's concussion protocol, but he has a long week ahead of the matchup Monday, Dec. 16, against the Indianapolis Colts.

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.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 29-for-40 passing for 349 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He also rushed for a touchdown.
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.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) caught two passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns on a pair of targets vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He left early with a concussion.
Huddle Up: Monitor his status throughout the week. The veteran has been on a tear in fantasy of late, and he will be a sound play vs. the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15, should Cook clear the concussion protocol.

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (concussion) suffered a concussion during the Week 14 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Cook will need to pass all of the concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so his status for Week 15 is uncertain. Josh Hill would be the main tight end for the Saints if Cook misses time and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

New Orleans Saints DE Cameron Jordan had six tackles (five solo) and four sacks against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13.

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill ran twice for 33 yards and a touchdown during the team's Week 13 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Hill also caught two passes for 12 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: In addition to his two TDs, Hill also blocked a punt, showing off his tremendous versatility and athleticism. In a low-usage gadget role, however, Hill is a complete shot in the dark from one week to the next.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook had three receptions for 85 yards against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Cook comfortably led the team in receiving yardage but inexplicably let an easy touchdown slip through his fingers. Despite that, Cook has finally emerged as a solid TE1 regardless of the opponent.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray carried the ball four times for two yards on Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Murray matched his season low with two total yards, which was a massive disappointment after he led the team in rushing with 64 yards in Week 12. The hope that Murray would morph into a true successor to Mark Ingram has never materialized, leaving Murray with inconsistent fringe value. He's best kept on the bench against the Niners next Sunday.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara had 11 carries for 64 yards during the team's Week 13 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Kamara added four receptions for 23 yards; he was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: Like seemingly everyone associated with the Saints' offense, Kamara looked a step slow Thursday night, particularly in the passing game -- he also appeared frozen as Atlanta recovered multiple onside kicks. To be frank, it hasn't been a great year for Kamara, who has just two touchdowns this season, both of which came back in Week 3, after scoring 18 times in 2018. He's far too talented and involved offensively to bench, but he hasn't delivered the kind of value you'd like to see out of a top-10 pick, either.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 18 of 30 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: Thursday night marked the first time this season that Brees has passed for less than 200 yards, other than the game he injured his thumb, though his receivers did him few favors with drops from Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook on a likely TD. Expect him to have his hands full next Sunday when the 49ers come calling.

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray carried the ball seven times for 64 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 12 win over the Carolina Panthers.
Huddle Up: This was probably Murray's best game with Alvin Kamara also playing, even if the touch split is still heavily favoring Kamara. Murray hasn't grown into Mark Ingram 2.0, but he has flex appeal on a short week against the Falcons.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook caught six of his eight targets for 99 yards and a touchdown in a 34-31 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Cook had season highs in receptions and yards, and he caught a touchdown for the fourth time in the last five games. His yardage totals continue to fluctuate, but he has a big enough role in the offense to be used as a low-end TE1.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed 11 time for 54 yards and caught nine passes for 48 yards in a 34-31 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 12.
Huddle Up: He continues to deliver pedestrian rushing totals, but Kamara has been piling up receptions since returning from an injury. He hasn't been the top fantasy back by any means, but he remains a steady RB1.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees completed 30 of his 39 passes for 311 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in a 34-31 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Brees has now thrown three touchdowns in three of his four games since returning from injury, and he has wasted no time becoming a weekly QB1 option once again.

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.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 75 yards on 13 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. He also caught 10 passes for 47 yards during the game.
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 QB Drew Brees went 28-for-35 for 228 yards and three touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Brees has thrown for eight touchdowns in five games this season and has gone back-to-back games without an interception. He will be facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 11 and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.
