New Orleans Saints WRs Robert Meachem and Joe Morgan will likely be asked to play more with WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) out for an extended period. WR Kenny Stills is likely to have a much bigger role in the offense, as well.
Fantasy Tip: Marques Colston and Stills should see the biggest boost in their fantasy football value with Cooks hobbled. Jimmy Graham will also likely be targeted more. Travaris Cadet and Pierre Thomas will be relied on more for passes out of the backfield, too. Meachem and Morgan are weak flex plays at FantasyScore moving forward.
Fri, 07 Nov 2014 13:54:48 -0800
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as probable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Stills should be able to play this week despite not being a full participant in practice. Stills costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners may be able to find better options to use.
Thu, 06 Nov 2014 18:24:55 -0800
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (thigh) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Stills is still looking likely to play Sunday, and he has enjoyed three solid games in a row. He will take up just 6.0% of the cap ($3,000) at FantasyScore and makes a nice upside play for the price.
Wed, 05 Nov 2014 17:26:27 -0800
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (thigh) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5, due to his thigh injury.
Fantasy Tip: Stills' status will be better known by Friday, so check back then. If he plays, he is a bargain in FantasyScore leagues at just $3,000 (or 6.0 percent of the cap).
Fri, 12 Sep 2014 14:35:37 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is probable for Week 2.
Fantasy Tip: Stills has a FantasyScore price of $3,700 (7.40% of cap) which could be a bargain if he suits up in Week 2. Check back closer to kickoff before you set your lineups.
Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:37:32 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was limited in practice for the second day in a row Thursday, Sept. 11.
Fantasy Tip: All signs are pointing to Stills being questionable for the second straight week. The Saints don't want to rush him back. If you're filling out a FantasyScore lineup with a Thursday deadline, stray from his $3,700 price. However, he could be a bargain come Sunday if he suits up against the Cleveland Browns.
Wed, 10 Sep 2014 14:22:35 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.
Fantasy Tip: Stills sat out in Week 1, leaving him at the cheapest slot in FantasyScore ($3,700; 7.4% of cap) in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. If he winds up playing, he could be a bargain. Brandin Cooks ($5,300; 10.6% of cap), who broke out in Week 1, may be another popular lineup addition if Stills remains out.
Sun, 07 Sep 2014 08:51:59 -0700
The New Orleans Saints have declared FB Erik Lorig, DL John Jenkins, WR Kenny Stills, SS Marcus Ball, WR Nick Toon, OT Senio Kelemete, CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste inactive for Week 1.
Sat, 06 Sep 2014 12:08:40 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Tip: This increases the value of Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks at the wide receiver position. Colston is worth the $5,800 on FantasyScore while Cooks could be a nice value pick at $4,600.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 14:18:33 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. It was the second time Stills was limited in practice this week.
Fantasy Tip: It's looking like Stills may be a game-time decision Sunday morning. Even at a cheap FantasyScore price of $4,500 (9% percent of salary cap), it's not wise to put Stills in your starting lineup. Check back Sunday to see if he's active.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 15:03:59 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) didn't participate in team drills Thursday, Sept. 4, but he's not ruling out playing in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. However, the decision on whether he'll play ultimately will come down to the trainer's decision.
Fantasy Tip: Stills is in serious danger of sitting out the season opener. Play it safe and bench him. The beneficiary will be rookie Brandin Cooks, who has an agreeable salary at FantasyScore of $4,600.
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 14:51:16 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Stills could be questionable to play in Week 1, and he might even be a game-time decision Sunday. As a result, he's a risky play in daily games. Marques Colston is a safe bet for solid production, and rookie Brandin Cooks should return nice profit at a cheap price if Stills doesn't suit up.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 20:48:24 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps), SS Rafael Bush (undisclosed), SS Marcus Ball (undisclosed), LB Khairi Fortt (undisclosed) and FB Erik Lorig (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, and CB Trevin Wade (undisclosed) was limited.
Sat, 23 Aug 2014 19:23:30 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) left the third preseason game because of a quadriceps injury and did not return to the game. Stills was sidelined for three weeks during training camp because of a quadriceps injury.
Fantasy Tip: Stills is expected to be a solid part of the passing game this season, but owners should monitor the situation in case he misses some time.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 14:48:39 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston (undisclosed) and WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) are doing individual drills in practice Sunday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Colston is a WR3 with an uptick in PPR leagues.
Fri, 15 Aug 2014 17:07:22 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was inactive for the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the Tennessee Titans. He was on the field in workout clothes before the game catching passes for QB Drew Brees (oblique), and he did some running.

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) pulled up lame on a deep route in practice Friday, July 25, and is being examined by trainers.
Wed, 09 Jul 2014 08:23:27 -0700
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.
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:20:34 -0700
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.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:19:18 -0800
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.
Sun, 03 Nov 2013 08:29:03 -0800
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.
Thu, 31 Oct 2013 14:38:13 -0700
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.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 14:09:19 -0700
The New Orleans Saints signed free-agent WR Patrick Crayton (Cowboys) to an undisclosed deal Monday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Crayton will join the crowded competition for the No. 3 receiver duties with Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Steve Breaston and others. Crayton probably isn't worth a late-round flier unless he stands out in the final three weeks of the preseason.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 13:26:34 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills appears to be the leading candidate for the No. 3 wide receiver job at this point. WR Steve Breaston likely will compete with Stills for the job, but Stills has a big edge.
Wed, 07 Aug 2013 13:34:52 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills received some reps with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 5, and performed well. Stills was targeted often by QB Drew Brees on various short-yardage routes. Stills is likely a long shot for the No. 3 wide receiver job but likely will make the final roster.
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:27:29 -0700
New Orleans Saints WRs Saalim Hakim, Preston Parker, Kenny Stills, Andy Tanner and Nick Toon could each see bigger roles following the injury to WR Joe Morgan (knee), who is likely to miss at least a few weeks. However, the team values experience in the top three receiver roles, and it is believed veteran WR Steve Breaston will get a long look as the No. 3 first before any of the younger players.
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 10:34:12 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan is battling WRs Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Courtney Roby for the No. 3 wide receiver spot in training camp behind WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that New Orleans should continue to have an explosive aerial attack led by Drew Brees, until we know who actually has the No. 3 job, none of those options are worth drafting. They could make for waiver-wire fodder later in the season if injuries open up a spot in front of them.
Thu, 25 Jul 2013 19:16:58 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (wrist), LB Victor Butler (knee), CB Patrick Robinson (knee) and SS Roman Harper (hernia) may miss some practice time because injuries. Butler and Robinson are expected to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Head coach Sean Payton said Stills and Harper likely will be limited if they are able to practice.
Sat, 20 Jul 2013 16:45:47 -0700
New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (undisclosed), LB Eric Martin (undisclosed) and LB Rufus Johnson (undisclosed) are expected to be ready once practices begin even though they were placed on the Non-Football Injury list.

Sun, 09 Jun 2013 17:09:23 -0700
New Orleans Saints WRs Jarred Fayson and Andy Tanner are a pair of receivers who have spent plenty of time on NFL practice squads, and are trying to make the 53-man roster. Both receivers reportedly have been consistent during offseason workouts, and they have found ways to free themselves up in the secondary. WR Kenny Stills, a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, has yet to stand out. All three might be competing for the fifth receiver job.
Thu, 09 May 2013 17:57:29 -0700
