New Orleans Saints news, rumors and injuries

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham, who had a team-high seven catches for 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 9 win Thursday, Oct. 30, said a vicious hit earlier in the game inspired him to be more aggressive and physical against the Carolina Panthers. "I just need to play more emotional," said Graham. "I think early I wasn't playing emotional enough -- at least for me. I think I need to bring it that way on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and in practice. And when I do that, I think it adds something not only to my game, but it helps spur our offense."
Fantasy Tip: Graham appears back to full health after putting up touchdowns in his last two games. It's also not a coincidence that the Saints offense has been back in a groove with Graham more involved. You should feel comfortable paying for Graham in daily fantasy leagues moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Although it's good news that Ingram remained in the game, the injury is worth monitoring going forward to see if it forces him to miss time or limits his effectiveness.

Fantasy Tip: Fortunately, it appears that this was a false alarm and Graham's shoulder is fine. He caught a touchdown just before halftime and appears no worse for wear following the hit.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for any updates on Graham's condition. He has dealt with a shoulder issue for much of the year, and he may have aggravated the problem.

Fantasy Tip: With both Robinson and Thomas out, Mark Ingram ($6,100; 12.2% of cap), who had a monster Week 8, should be in your lineups against the Panthers. Travaris Cadet ($3,300) isn't a bad option in PPR leagues such as FantasyScore, either.

Fantasy Tip: Graham should be good to go this week, and will cost $7,900 in FantasyScore. Graham should be a starting option in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: With Thomas officially ruled out, Mark Ingram could be a decent play in FantasyScore, and will cost $6,100 this week.

New Orleans Saints LB David Hawthorne (hand) and FB Austin Johnson (knee) both did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 29, and have been ruled out for the team's Week 9 game. C Jonathan Goodwin (knee, ankle) and LB Kyle Knox were both limited in practice and are questionable.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram said he is a little sore after a career-high 24 carries in Week 8 but added that he will be ready to carry a heavy load again in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 30.
Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance Ingram will have the backfield to himself again Thursday with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson nursing injuries. With the Saints facing the 28th-ranked run defense of the Carolina Panthers, Ingram ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) could be one of the better values at running back at FantasyScore in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: If Robinson doesn't play Thursday night, which wouldn't be a surprise, Mark Ingram would again get the majority of work on the ground. Travaris Cadet could be a nice sleeper in point-per-reception leagues.
