Saints | C.J. Spiller a healthy scratch in Week 1

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 11:06:25 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller was a healthy scratch in Week 1, according to head coach Sean Payton, who also stated RB Travaris Cadet was going to have a bigger role on offense and rookie Daniel Lasco was going to contribute more on special teams.

Fantasy Tip: The hope Spiller owners had following the Saints' encouraging use of him in the third preseason game appears to have been for naught. Tim Hightower operated as Mark Ingram's direct backup like he did last season, while Cadet had four touches - including three catches for 14 yards and a score - in what was expected to be Spiller's role. With Cadet and Lasco almost certainly locked into their roles, it is quite likely Spiller will be a healthy scratch most of the season and could be cut in the offseason.

Saints | Sean Payton close to new deal

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 13:10:35 -0800

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he is close to finalizing a new contract with the Saints. Payton added that he sees himself staying with New Orleans for at least the next four or five years.

Fantasy Tip: Rumors about Payton staying or going have been going on for a while now, especially after the 2015 season. Those rumors can be put to rest once Payton signs his imminent new deal. He's regarded as one of the best offensive minds in the game, and as long as he and Drew Brees are on the same team, Brees will be a QB1.

Saints | Sean Payton staying in New Orleans

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 11:48:15 -0800

New Orleans head coach Sean Payton will remain with the team in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: It's big news for the offense, but he can't suit up and catch passes or run the football. QB Drew Brees is aging, and his shoulder was an issue this year. He needs weapons around him. His fantasy stock as an upper-middle QB has little upside until that happens.
