Fantasy Tip: Coleman was considered a big-time sleeper last season but he never really panned out. Now, he might be on the bubble heading into the new season. Avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues for now.

New Orleans Saints FB Austin Johnson is the only fullback on the roster currently. He has been on and off the roster recently, and his status heading into the season hinges on whether the team decides they need a fullback.

New Orleans Saints RBs Travaris Cadet, Daniel Lasco, Marcus Murphy are likely to jockey for the spots behind RBs Mark Ingram, Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller. Murphy and Lasco benefit special teams, with Murphy as a return man and Lasco for coverage. Cadet might also crack the roster as a runner, receiver and return man, and the final spot might come down to Cadet and Murphy and who is hotter in training camp and the preseason.

New Orleans Saints QB Garrett Grayson will have to earn the No. 3 job and show some real progress to keep him roster spot. He will be slotted behind QBs Drew Brees and Luke McCown. Since the team invested a third-round pick on Grayson last year as a developmental project, he is likely to stick around.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener has an uncanny ability to separate and get open, according to QB Drew Brees. "There's always a place to throw the ball where he can get it," Brees said. Fleener was targeted eight times during 7-on-7 drills and 11-on-11 drills this week -- the same number of targets as WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.
Fantasy Tip: Fleener is one of the more intriguing options at tight end this season with his new team. In one of the most pass-happy offenses in the NFL, he's a mid- to low-end TE1, even if he still has some things to learn.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas should have a decent role in the passing game even though he will be a rookie in 2016. He likely will be a decent option in the late rounds of most deeper fantasy leagues.

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram is the lead running back for the Saints, while RB Tim Hightower appears to be the backup, according to Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune. RB C.J. Spiller holds the No. 3 spot.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower proved his worth later on last season in New Orleans when Ingram was sidelined. Ingram is still an RB1 when healthy, though. Spiller is a mid-round option in PPR leagues, while Hightower is a late-round handcuff consideration for Ingram in standard formats.

Williams is healthy after missing last year with an injury and has impressed in practices. The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Larry Holder says that Williams is playing more physical.
