New Orleans Saints FS Jairus Byrd (knee) was out of practice Thursday, May 26, and working on the side with trainers. He is rehabbing the same knee that has bothered him the last two years and should be ready for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: The odds are it's a minor ailment that shouldn't affect his draft stock. He had a decent 84-1,138-9 season last year. He's a solid WR2, and entering that pivotal third year, he has upside.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees, who said he hasn't had contract extension talks in two months, will not negotiate a new contract during the 2016 season. He doesn't plan to miss any offseason activities, whether a deal gets done or not.
Fantasy Tip: Brees' numbers have declined since his ridiculous 2011 season when he threw for 5,476 yards and 46 touchdowns. He hasn't exactly fallen off a cliff, either, despite his roster becoming somewhat questionable the last couple of years. Brees is 37, but he's still one of the first signal callers you're going to target after the first three studs are gone. That will be even more evident if Tom Brady's suspension holds.

Fantasy Tip: Brees has thrown at least 30 touchdowns in each of his last eight seasons and at least 4,000 yards in each of his last 10 seasons. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues even though he is 37 years old.

Fantasy Tip: Brown's best season came in 2013 when he had 41 catches for 472 yards and a touchdown. He doesn't move the fantasy needle at all, but he could become relevant as a waiver wire addition if injuries in front of him on New Orleans' depth chart open up considerable playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Barth will compete with Kai Forbath to be the team's placekicker but fantasy owners can find more reliable options elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player moves the needle in fantasy, but the Saints' offense is a prime spot to emerge from the fantasy purgatory. If one of them signs, they'll have a chance in camp to show they're worth a WR5 flyer.

Fantasy Tip: If Nicks shows the Saints something, it's an offense that he could have a bit of a fantasy revival in. If he signs, he'll have to show a spark in camp to be worth a WR5 flyer.

Fantasy Tip: Kai Forbath now has sole possession of the Saints' kicker position. Forbath struggled with the Washington Redskins last year, though, and there are plenty of better options to consider for a starting fantasy kicker.
