Saints | C.J. Spiller sticking in New Orleans?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 18:32:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints RB C.J. Spiller will likely remain on the roster, at least into training camp, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett. Spiller will count more against the cap if he is cut before June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller was a huge disappointment in his first year with the Saints, and if he remains with the team in 2016, he would be nothing more than a late-round lottery ticket for fantasy owners.

Saints | Marques Colston may be too expensive

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 17:01:45 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston may be asked to take another pay cut this offseason in order to stay with the team. He is scheduled to make $3.2 million in 2016 and have a $5.9 million salary cap figure.

Fantasy Tip: Colston probably will be a No. 3 wide receiver if he remains with the Saints. Colston finished this season with 520 yards and four touchdowns. He likely will go undrafted in most leagues next season but could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Saints | Matt Forte a long shot for Saints

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 12:35:24 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte probably will not be pursued by the New Orleans Saints this offseason unless he is willing to accept a hometown discount.

Fantasy Tip: Mark Ingram likely will enter next season as the starter, but Forte could be the backup running back if he decides to play closer to his home town. Forte would be a fine option in point-per-reception leagues because of the Saints' offense, but there is a good chance he signs elsewhere.

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:50:15 -0800

Updating a previous item, New Orleans Saints LB Dannell Ellerbe restructured his contract Wednesday, Feb. 10, but the terms are unknown.

Ellerbe was originally set to count $5.9 million against the salary cap. He's played in just seven games the last two years due to injury and has never played a full season.

Saints | Drew Brees' money guaranteed

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 13:22:30 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees had $10.85 million of his $20 million salary guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There wasn't really any doubt that Brees was coming back to the bayou. He remains one of the most consistent and reliable fantasy and real-life quarterbacks. Continue to draft him as a top starting fantasy quarterback.

Saints | Drew Brees extension before free agency?

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 14:29:12 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees may receive a contract extension before the start of free agency March 15. Extending Brees before free agency begins would give the Saints the ability to use the extension to cut down Brees' salary-cap cost for 2016. New Orleans is currently $10 million over the projected salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Brees and the Saints had not begun negotiations as of Feb. 4, but those negotiations should begin in the near future. Brees is still one of the best passers in the NFL and deserves a contract extension, which could solidify him staying in New Orleans for the rest of his career. He's a QB1 once again heading into next season.

Saints | Brandon Browner to be released

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:12:21 -0800

Updating a previous item, New Orleans Saints CB Brandon Browner will be released by the team, according to sources. By league rules the Saints can't cut him until after the Super Bowl. Browner will cost $6.3 million against the salary cap in 2016 and is due $5 million in salary and bonuses, including $2.75 million fully guaranteed. New Orleans will save $950,000 in cap space and $2.25 million in cash if they wait until after March 9 to release him. Browner was flagged for 24 penalties (21 accepted) this year, which was the most by any player in a season since at least 2001.

Saints | No talks for Drew Brees yet

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 13:52:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees said any conversations with the Saints regarding a contract extension have not happened yet.

Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of time for Brees and the Saints to get an extension done. Even if he doesn't sign an extension this year, he'll likely still be quarterbacking the Saints in 2016. It's hard to believe an extension isn't in the cards for Brees, though. Draft him as a QB1 again this year.
