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

Jun 28, 09:02 PM New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller has a perfect skill-set for head coach Sean Payton's system, which relies on getting the ball to players in space, according Chris Wesseling of NFL.com. Wesseling believes Spiller is significantly more talented than RB Reggie Bush and RB Darren Sproles, who both thrived in Payton's system.

Fantasy Impact: Spiller really seems setup for a big year. The big issue for him will be staying healthy. If that happens, watch out.
Jun 19, 04:42 PM New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller will have plays designed specifically for him in head coach Sean Payton's offense. Payton said he's anxious to see how Spiller fits into the offense with his speed and good hands.
Jun 18, 12:12 PM New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) and SS Kenny Vaccaro are sitting out of practice Thursday, June 18.
Jun 18, 12:12 PM New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) and SS Kenny Vaccaro are sitting out of practice Thursday, June 18.
Jun 18, 09:42 AM Free-agent DT Kevin Williams (Vikings) signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, June 18. He received a $500,000 signing bonus, which is his only guarantee in the deal. He has another $1.6 million in playing time incentives.
Jun 17, 02:33 PM New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner (undisclosed) walked off the field with trainers Wednesday, June 17. It's unknown if he's cramping or injured.
Jun 16, 11:03 PM New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston did not participate in minicamp practice Tuesday, June 16, and it was at least the third session he has missed over the past two weeks. 'When you play nine, 10 years in this league at a skill position, mileage is mileage,' Colston said. 'I'm just kind of in a mode where they want to manage that process throughout the year.'
Jun 16, 08:52 AM New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette (pectoral) won't require surgery on his pectoral injury after meeting with Dr. James Andrews. The injury should require rest and rehab.
Jun 10, 02:23 PM New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Wednesday, June 10, because of an apparent injury.
Jun 10, 01:33 PM New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (ankle, foot) participated in organized team activities Wednesday, June 10.
Jun 08, 09:12 PM The Detroit Lions will work out free-agent WR Robert Meachem (Saints) Tuesday, June 12.
Jun 08, 03:42 PM New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks expects to play at a faster pace in his second season in the NFL. Cooks said he's ahead of where he was last offseason from a mental standpoint and feels that he has unfinished business following a shortened rookie season due to a broken thumb.
Jun 05, 12:32 PM New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette (pectoral) is likely to have a decision on surgery in the next week or so. Doctors are split on whether he should have surgery, and he's seeking another opinion.
Jun 05, 09:42 AM New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (foot, ankle) was out of practice Thursday, June 4, but head coach Sean Payton said it wasn't due to anything significant. Ingram was out last Thursday due to what Payton described as a minor foot/ankle issue. It's unclear if he has missed the entirety of the last two weeks because one practice session per week is open to the media.
Jun 04, 07:02 PM New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette (pectoral) recently suffered an injury to his pectoral and is supposedly considering surgery, according to sources. The cause and extent of Galette's injury is unknown at this time.
Jun 03, 07:13 PM New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) is in good shape and working to get through his knee injury, according to head coach Sean Payton, Wednesday, June 3. Byrd still needs to do some maintenance on his knee, but he is nearing a return to organized team activities.
