New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills' 20.0 yards-per-catch average led all NFL players that recorded at least 30 receptions last season.
Fantasy Tip: Stills is featured in our sleeper and breakout reports as he looks to take another step forward in his sophomore year. Make sure his name is bolded on your cheat sheet, especially in non-PPR drafts.

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills and DT Akiem Hicks look like breakout candidates for the team this year. Both have been carrying themselves with plenty of swagger in offseason workouts. Stills has been playing all three receiver positions and running all of the routes. Hicks has shown himself to be one of the strongest players on the roster, and he's been nearly unblockable.
Fantasy Tip: Stills had boom-or-bust potential last year in New Orleans' offense. He could be more of the same in 2014 with the way Drew Brees loves to spread the ball around. However, increased versatility and more familiarity in the offense should help. His ceiling remains high, but he's still risky and is more valuable in standard-scoring formats.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait for the inactive list to come out to see if Colston will play. If he is able to play, he should be considered a low-end starting wide receiver or flex option. Robert Meachem and Kenny Stills could get increase in value if Colston misses the game and could be flex options. Meachem likely would be a safer option than Stills for owners.

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 9.
Fantasy Tip: With Colston out, Kenny Stills likely will receive an increase in his fantasy value since he will get more playing time. Lance Moore likely will also see more targets during the game. Both should be starting options for owners this week.
Fri, 01 Nov 2013 21:02:08 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is uncertain to play in the Week 9 game against the New York Jets. If he cannot go, the team still has good depth at the receiver position with WR Lance Moore healthy, and WR Kenny Stills emerging as a solid threat. WRs Robert Meachem and Nick Toon also provide good depth.
Fantasy Tip: If Colston is inactive, and TE Jimmy Graham (foot) is again limited, bump Moore up to a WR3 or flex play in standard leagues, and a low-end WR2 in points-per-receptions (PPR) fantasy formats. Stills would also be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex play if Colston is sidelined.

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 31.
Fantasy Tip: Stills' injury does not appear to be serious at all. He's a hot waiver wire commodity this week after his explosion with two touchdowns in Week 8. With Jimmy Graham (foot) returning to full health and Lance Moore around, however, Stills involvement may be inconsistent. Beware not to put too much stock into one week worth of production from him.
Wed, 30 Oct 2013 13:17:59 -0700
New Orleans Saints CB Keenan Lewis (foot, knee) DT Akiem Hicks (knee) and DE Cameron Jordan (ankle) all fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. S Roman Harper (knee), TE Jimmy Graham (foot) LB David Hawthorne (ankle) WR Kenny Stills (knee) and CB Rod Sweeting (hip) all were limited in practice. S Kenny Vaccaro (head,back), WR Marques Colston (knee), G Jahri Evans (hip), DE Tyrunn Walker (knee) and S Malcolm Jenkins (knee) all did not participate in practice
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:21:12 -0700
New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 24, and the likelihood of him playing in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills decreased. TE Benjamin Watson may start in Graham's place if he cannot play. Watson had three catches for 61 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6 when Graham was blanketed in coverage.
Fantasy Tip: Watson could pick up some of the slack, but as Larry Holder notes, he'll likely be used to block frequently, too. Marques Colston should be primed for a big game, and Kenny Stills and Nick Toon are sleeper options that could make some big plays if Graham doesn't play.
Thu, 05 Sep 2013 09:29:51 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Robert Meachem is happy to be back with the team, where he caught 45 passes for 722 yards and nine touchdowns in 2009. "Just watching him run around, he looks as good as ever," QB Drew Brees said. "I look forward to getting him incorporated back in."
Fantasy Tip: Meachem had pretty solid chemistry with Brees before, so it'll be interesting if the two can regain some of that after lost time. Meachem provides the Saints with a proven No. 3 receiver. The signing will temper the excitement over Kenny Stills, but if he continues to produce like he did in the preseason, Meachem might just provide WR depth.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 14:20:23 -0700
The New Orleans Saints released WRs Patrick Crayton and Steve Breaston Monday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Kenny Stills appears to have separated himself as the No. 3 wide receiver based on his play this preseason, and this move supports that idea. Stills isn't a bad late-round selection to shore up your WR depth.
