2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
New Orleans Saints
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Saints were a huge disappointment last season. We don�??t expect a repeat but this team still seems some talent short of making a playoff run. The offense can put up some points but the defense remains a bit suspect. New Orleans seems about a .500 team this year, getting a little better than last season but still coming up short of the playoffs.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Some might say last season was a breakout one for Mark Ingram , but things are looking up for him even more this year. The Saints look to be moving to a more run-oriented offense, giving Ingram more chances to rush the ball. He can improve on his numbers from last year and become a legit No. 1 for fantasy teams. The Saints will score some points with Ingram getting a lot of touches and the goal-line chances. He is ready to take his game to a new level.
FANTASY DUD
He started to show signs of slowing down last season, so don�??t be surprised if Marques Colston takes another step backwards this season. He is another year older and battled several injuries throughout his career. He might be breaking down sooner than later. He still might have some big games along the way but Colston won�??t be the same fantasy receiver as past seasons, especially if the Saints are running the ball more, which is expected.

Team Notes

Aug 27, 01:52 PM New Orleans Saints RB Khiry Robinson (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 27, with an undisclosed ailment.
Aug 24, 05:12 AM New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon (ankle) has a high ankle sprain and could miss as much as two to three weeks, according to sources.

Fantasy Impact: Toon might lost his roster spot at this point.
Aug 23, 12:02 AM New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had four catches for 117 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown, in a preseason game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Impact: Cooks continues to impress. He is setup for a breakout season.
Aug 22, 10:22 PM New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees spent two months working on his mechanics with his throwing coach this offseason, and he said the oblique injury he suffered last summer had an impact throughout the 2014 season.
Aug 22, 10:12 AM New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said he expects to play at least a quarter against the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 22. Head coach Sean Payton has not confirmed his quarterback rotation yet, though.
Aug 20, 11:42 AM New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram has been featured as a receiver out of the backfield in practice Thursday, Aug. 20.
Aug 19, 10:03 PM New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman was cited as the player who has impressed the most during training camp, head coach Sean Payton said Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Impact: Coleman is a guy all leagues should consider drafting at this point. You just keep hearing great things about him.
Aug 19, 10:03 PM The Carolina Panthers might reach out to free-agent WR Robert Meachem (Saints) to provide depth to their receiving corps. He will still just be 31 in September, but he has managed only four touchdowns over the past three seasons.
Aug 19, 05:23 PM New Orleans Saints TE Kevin Brock (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list. Free-agent TE Alex E. Smith (Saints) was subsequently re-signed.
Aug 19, 05:23 PM New Orleans Saints TE Kevin Brock (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list. Free-agent TE Alex E. Smith (Saints) was subsequently re-signed.
Aug 19, 02:13 PM New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller (knee) should be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Impact: His stock is taking a hit some but don't downgrade him too much because of this injury. He should be ready for Week 1 and be a big part of this offense.
Aug 19, 02:13 PM New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) hopefully will be able to play at some point during the preseason, according to head coach Sean Payton.
Aug 18, 09:33 PM New Orleans Saints WR Seantavius Jones is on the roster bubble. If he doesn't make the 53-man roster he is likely to be a candidate for the team's practice squad.
Aug 18, 09:33 PM New Orleans Saints QB Garrett Grayson is considered a long shot to win the primary backup job to starting QB Drew Brees, but the idea has still not been ruled out.
Aug 18, 09:23 PM New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman did not see work in the first half of the opening preseason game, but this week he has been featured in three-receiver sets during practice. Head coach Sean Payton said this week that Coleman did nothing wrong, and the team will work to get him more involved in the second preseason game.

Fantasy Impact: Coleman's stock is rising. He has a good chance to be the No. 3 receiver in this pass-heavy offense.
Aug 18, 09:52 AM New Orleans Saints LB Dannell Ellerbe (toe) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.
