Fantasy Tip: The potent system gives Coleman some WR5 luster if he manages to make the team. However, he'd be the fourth receiver at best.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener hasn't been reliable enough catching passes and isn't on the same page with QB Drew Brees on some routes, according to beat writer Larry Holder. TE Josh Hill has been more involved in the passing game in recent practices.
Fantasy Tip: That breakout season for Fleener to thrust him into the fantasy spotlight is in question now. He has a lot of tools, and the offense has a history of making fantasy stars. Fleener will need to pick it up to rekindle some of the upside he had entering camp. He's a low-end TE1 for now, and Hill is a TE2 that could become a deep sleeper.

New Orleans Saints TE Coby Fleener is still getting situation in his team's offense, and he continues to make adjustments. "I'd say it's an ongoing progression," head coach Sean Payton said Monday, Aug. 22. "I think, man, there's some plays that are real good, and then there's some plays where we've got to be a little bit more detailed and that's something that I know he's got to work on."
Fantasy Tip: No matter what the depth charts have been saying, Fleener will be well ahead of Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanwanui, and should be a the second or third option in the pass game once the regular season gets rolling. He is being drafted as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues, and is a good consolation prize for those who miss out on the likes of Rob Gronkowski, Greg Olsen, Jordan Reed, etc.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller hasn't come close to the impact he had when he was a standout at Clemson. Sure, early in his career in Buffalo he had a few notable games, but he has settled into a reserve role in the NFL and he is only worth rostering in fantasy leagues as a depth player at this point until he proves otherwise.

New Orleans Saints RB Tim Hightower is expected to serve as the team's primary backup to RB Mark Ingram, as none of the other reserve tailbacks have flashed or helped themselves in training camp and the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Hightower made a miraculous comeback last season, returning to fantasy relevance. However as long as Ingram is healthy Hightower's workload will be rather minimal, and therefore so will his fantasy appeal.
