Saints | C.J. Spiller a good fit in New Orleans?

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:52:44 -0700

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 Tip: Pass-catching backs like Spiller have enjoyed a lot of success in Payton's system. He has a good chance to slide into RB2 territory in PPR formats, and he should make a solid flex option in standard leagues.

Saints | Junior Galette under fire again

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:19:10 -0700

New Orleans Saints LB Junior Galette was allegedly shown on video striking a man and a woman with a belt in a video from an apparent brawl on South Beach in 2013.

Saints | HC excited to use C.J. Spiller

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:37:51 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller will assume the role previously held by Reggie Bush, Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas. The aforementioned running backs were all legitimate pass-catching threats in Payton's pass-happy offense. The key for Spiller will be staying healthy after suffering a broken collarbone last season. If he can stay on the field, he has RB2 potential in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | Marques Colston limiting his mileage

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 19:50:29 -0700

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."

Fantasy Tip: Colston is now two years removed from the 80-catch, 1000-yard plateau, and his receptions and yards have decreased in consecutive seasons. He best years are behind him, and as indicated by his limited participation recently, nagging injuries have taken their toll. At best, Colston could be drafted as a low-end No. 4 wide receiver, but he looks a lot better as your No. 5 or No. 6.

Saints | Mark Ingram returns to practice

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 10:19:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram (ankle, foot) participated in organized team activities Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram missed a few practices this offseason but does not appear to be dealing with any serious injuries. He should see a good amount of carries this season but probably will lose some playing time to the other running backs on the roster. Ingram could be a solid No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Saints | Brandin Cooks wants to play faster

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 12:36:07 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is the go-to guy in the Saints offense now with Jimmy Graham out of the picture. He figures to be the No. 1 wide receiver in New Orleans with Marques Colston on the downward trend at this point in his career. Cooks should be drafted as a WR2 with added value in point-per-reception leagues.
