News: Saints have come to terms with defensive lineman Junior Galette to a three-year deal, according to the team's official website. Galette racked up a career-high five sacks in 12 games (one start) last season for the Saints.
Analysis: Galette was set to become a restrictive free agent before the Saints gave him a new deal. He is expected to move to outside linebacker in New Orleans' new 3-4 defensive scheme. The 24-year-old has logged 9.5 sacks in his first three seasons in the league and should be viewed as a low-end Fantasy option in most IDP formats on Draft Day.
News: Saints defensive lineman Junior Galette was able to get after the quarterback in Week 7 against the Buccaneers. He brought down Josh Freeman once and finished with five tackles in the 35-28 win. Galette now has four sacks on the year.
Analysis: Galette is half a sack away from matching his career mark and might be worth a look in deeper IDP formats heading into Week 8 against the Broncos. Since he does not record many tackles, however, consider him a low-end Fantasy option.
News: Saints defensive lineman Junior Galette totaled two sacks for a loss of 7 yards Week 3 vs. Kansas City. He also had one forced fumble.
Analysis: Galette had three tackles and no sacks in his first two games, so Sunday should tell you not to expect too many standout performances from the third-year veteran. He is just a backup defensive lineman for New Orleans and is not a recommended Fantasy option.
News: Saints DL Junior Galette totaled two sacks and three quarterback hits in Week 2 against the Bears. He now has 2 1/2 sacks through two games.
Analysis: Back in January, Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams singled out Galette as a player to watch heading into 2011. Thank you Mr. Williams because Galette hasn't disappointed and this fast start means he is worth a look off waivers in Fantasy IDP formats.
News: DE Junior Galette is someone Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams said he's eager to see play next season. Galette made the team last season as an undrafted free agent but didn't see much playing time on defense. Hes earned the right to get a chance now," Williams said. "Hes really, really come a long way and is in a position to compete now."
Analysis: Galette had four tackles in four games last season. That's not a great track record, but if he lands relevant playing time then we're pretty sure he'll improve on his one tackle per game average.
News: Undrafted rookie free-agent DE Junior Galette has a chance of landing a spot in the Saints defensive line rotation in the wake of their release of veteran Bobby McCray. Galette has participated in walk-throughs with the first-team defense during the majority of OTAs, and head coach Sean Payton has praised him more than once.
Analysis: While we wouldn't be surprised if Galette stuck with the Saints, we would be surprised to see him register a bunch of stats. Keep him off of Fantasy rosters.
