New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught all five of his targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns in a preseason game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: In case there were any questions about Callaway's ability to fill in for the injured Michael Thomas, he likely answered them. The former undrafted free-agent got behind the defense and made a beautiful 43-yard diving TD catch less than three minutes into the game before making a wonderful one-handed grab along the sideline from 29 yards out on the second score. Callaway should be the unquestioned top receiver in New Orleans for at least the first month of the season and has made a strong case to be drafted as a WR4 with his work this summer.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway has shown much growth as a wide receiver and now might be too valuable to the offense to be used as a return specialist, in the opinion of one team beat reporter.
Huddle Up: With Michael Thomas' continuing injury issues, Callaway is certainly a name to keep in mind when mining for late-round WR upside in your drafts.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 9.
Huddle Up: Callaway likely will be back in the lineup after a one-week absence and probably will be a top-three receiver for the Saints. He should see a handful of targets, but fantasy players may have better options available.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Callaway had a big breakout in Week 7 with eight receptions for 75 yards on 10 targets. While he showed a flash of being a fantasy viable receiver in the Saints offense, his role will likely be dialed back considerably with Michael Thomas expected to return to action this week. Callaway is a deep-league stash.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 30, but has been ruled out for Week 8.
Huddle Up: The Saints will be without three receivers because of injury, so Tre'Quan Smith likely will be the top receiver for the Saints. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues. Alvin Kamara and Jared Cook will also see increased targets in the passing game and should be starting options.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 29.
Huddle Up: Callaway has been targeted 16 times in his last two games and will continue to have a big role in the passing game as long as Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are sidelined. He will be facing a solid Chicago Bears defense this week but can be a flex option in some leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway (ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.
Huddle Up: Callaway was a hot waiver wire commodity after catching eight of 10 targets for 75 yards in Week 7. He'll be a WR3/FLEX option if able to play this week with WR Michael Thomas possibly headed toward another missed game, but fantasy managers will want to see Callaway on the practice field.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught eight passes for 75 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. He was targeted 10 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Callaway entered the game with only five catches on the season but was a big part of the passing game with Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders not available. He could see a decent amount of targets again next week if Thomas and Sanders remain out and could at least a flex option in leagues.

New Orleans Saints WR Marquez Callaway posted four receptions for 34 yards in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers on six targets.
Huddle Up: Callaway was operating as the No. 2 receiver behind Emmanuel Sanders in this one, for all intents and purposes, as he tied Bennie Fowler for the second-most targets among the team's wideouts. Still, he has a long way to go before he has fantasy staying power, and his snaps will be less once Michael Thomas returns in Week 7 after the bye.
