Saints take advantage of Bears' mistakes in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2014) The Saints defense, one of the league's least effective units this season, got some help from Jay Cutler in a surprisingly stout showing in Week 15's 31-15 win over the Bears.

The Saints racked up 19 Fantasy points in the game, their best showing of the season, thanks to three Cutler interceptions. They held the Bears to just 278 yards of total offense as well, while also sacking Cutler seven times in the win.

The Saints DST unit has recorded double digits in Fantasy points just four times all season, and they could struggle to do so again in Week 16 against the Falcons. The Saints had just 3 Fantasy points in their Week 1 matchup with Atlanta. 


Saints PK Graham makes one, misses one in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Saints placekicker Shayne Graham blew a 42-yard field goal attempt in the second quarter Sunday against Carolina, but it wouldn't have mattered in a 31-point defeat.

Graham did nail a 41-yarder in the third and boot through his lone extra point attempt.


Saints can't slow Steelers down late


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Saints DST unit struggled mightily again in Week 13, a 35-32 win over the Steelers.

The Saints gave up three touchdowns to the Steelers in the second half, while surrendering 538 yards of total offense. They did come away with a pair interceptions in the game, however, while sacking Ben Roethlisberger once.

The Saints DST unit has failed to record double digits in Fantasy points in each of their last four games, though they could end that streak in Week 14 with the Panthers on the schedule. They registered their best game of the season, an 18-point showing against the Panthers in Week 9's matchup. 


Saints DST continues to struggle


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Saints DST unit's struggles continued in Week 12, as they fell to the Ravens, 34-27.

The Saints allowed the Ravens to rack up 449 yards of total offense, and could have been in for an even worse night, if the Ravens hadn't failed to score on two of their four trips to the red zone. The Ravens still managed to drop 34 points on them, though one score came on an interception return by the Ravens defense.

The Saints forced one turnover in the game, and ended up with just 3 Fantasy points, their second game in a row with that total. The Saints have failed to reach double figures in each of their last three games, a streak that could continue in Week 13 against the Steelers. 


Saints can't slow down slumping Bengals


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Saints DST unit fell apart in Week 11's 27-10 loss to the Bengals at home Sunday.

The Bengals offense had one of their best games in weeks against the Saints, racking up 405 yards of total offense in the game. The Saints failed to record a single turnover, and sacked Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton just once in the loss.

The Saints defense has had moments of greatness this season, and were averaging 11.8 Fantasy points in their previous four games, so hopefully this is just a bump in the road. Their next game is set for Week 12 against the Ravens. 


Late meltdown costs Saints in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) The Saints defense mostly held up their end of the bargain Sunday, but fell apart late in a 24-23 loss to the Lions in Week 7.

The Lions had just 10 points with four minutes left in the fourth quarter, as the Saints looked to be on their way to an easy win. Unfortunately, they surrendered two quick touchdowns to cost them the game.

The Saints did limit the Lions to just 344 yards of total offense in the game, including a paltry 59 yards on the ground. They forced a pair of turnovers and sacked Matthew Stafford three times in the loss.

The Saints DST unit still managed to score 9 Fantasy points in Sunday's game, their second-highest total of the season. They will likely struggle to reach even that level in Week 8, with the Packers on the schedule. 


Shayne Graham connects on all tries in Sunday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Saints placekicker Shayne Graham was perfect on a Sunday afternoon in which his team was far from it.

Graham booted a 27-yard field goal in his lone attempt and added three extra points in the loss to Cleveland.


Cameron Jordan does his job against Seahawks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Defensive end Cameron Jordan led the Saints charge defensively Saturday in Seattle. He contributed six tackles, one of three sacks and two of three TFLs.

Shayne Graham lays goose egg in Seattle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) When your best moment is an onside kick, you know it's a tough day. And it was a tough day Saturday in Seattle for Saints placekicker Shayne Graham, though the gusting wind was certainly a factor.

Graham missed two field goal attempts. The first just missed left from 45 yards out in the first quarter, but it must be pointed out that the holder placed the laces forward. His second attempt was way off from 48 yards and proved to be a key miss in the fourth quarter.

He did squib an onside kick that his team recovered with time running out, but it did not result in the completion of a comeback.


Saints keep Nick Foles under 200 yards


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2014) The Saints were able to hold off Philadelphia's comeback attempt as Shayne Graham drilled the game-winning field goal as time expired to win Saturday's Wild Card playoff game against the Eagles 26-24. New Orleans limited Nick Foles to 195 passing yards despite allowing two touchdown passes. The defense sacked Foles twice but were unable to force any turnovers, as they surrendered 256 yards of total offense.

The Saints will now travel to Seattle for a showdown against the Seahawks in the second round of the playoffs.

Saints DST mediocre in win over over Buccaneers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Saints DST brought a limited number of Fantasy points to their owners Sunday despite a strong defensive performance. They held Tampa Bay to 290 yards and 17 points, but did not score. They did record an interception and two sacks.

Shayne Graham boots only extra points on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Placekicker Shayne Graham had zero chances to kick a field goal in his second game with the Saints on Sunday. He was perfect on six extra points.

Saints DST could score big Fantasy points on Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) It must that Cajun cooking. Something makes the Saints defense (and offense, for that matter) so far superior at home than on the road. And they are at home Sunday against Tampa Bay, which makes their DST a premier play.

The Saints have surrendered just 108 points in seven home games this season for a PPG average of 15.4. They have yielded no more than 20 points in any home game all year. They have registered 12 of their 18 turnovers at home as well.

The result is that they rank near the top of the NFL in many statistical categories, including second in passing yards allowed (2,890). Their run defense can be porous at times, but has been (surprise!) far better at home.

The three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers rank the Saints DST as a top 10 option for Week 17 and two place them in their top four. The unit is a fine choice for Fantasy lineups against Tampa Bay.


Saints DST gives up game-winning score


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5:43 pm ET) The Saints DST only gave up 17 points Week 16, but lost the game. 

New Orleans did a good job stopping quarterback Cam Newton most of the game. They forced an interception and picked up four sacks. But Newton came up big when it mattered. With 22 seconds left, Newton threw the game-winning touchdown against the Saints. New Orleans will take on the Buccaneers Week 17.


Saints DST facing tough matchup


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) The Saints DST will have their hands full Week 16 against the Panthers. 

Carolina has been tough on opposing defenses, limiting them to just 7.29 Fantasy points per game. The Panthers don't score a ton of points per game, but do a good job not turning the ball over. The team has only fumbled 10 times this season, which is the lowest figure in the league. Cam Newton has also been more careful with the ball, tossing 11 interceptions. 

The Saints, however, have been much better defensively this season. The team has allowed just 19.3 points per game, which ranks fifth. They've been able to do so by getting to the opposing quarterback. The team has 43 sacks this year, one of the higher rates in the league. The Saints have been a useful Fantasy defense all season, but they are a slightly more questionable play this week.


Saints DST a Week 16 disaster


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) The Saints DST was a gigantic dud Sunday at St. Louis. The unit did not score or force a turnover. They completed their goose egg by recording no sacks and allowing the Rams to gain 302 total yards.

Garrett Hartley bats just .333 in Week 15


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Saints placekicker Garrett Hartley had as hard a time Sunday as his teammates. He missed two short boots wide left and made a 45-yarder in the second quarter.

Saints DST a fine Fantasy option against Rams


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Fantasy DSTs generally fall victim not only to strong opposing offenses, but to those representing the same team. Such is not the case with the Saints.

The Saints control the clock so effectively that their defense ranks fifth in the NFL in both passing and rushing attempts allowed. They are one of the few teams that score a boatload of points, but rank among the best in both passing defense and rushing touchdowns allowed. They are tied for second in the NFL with 43 sacks. They are indeed a fine Fantasy play in Week 15 at St. Louis. 

The Rams rank 27th in the NFL in total offensive yards (4,140) and 28th in rushing touchdowns (7). They are mediocre at best in other statistical categories. And they have struggled against such top defenses as Carolina, Seattle and San Francisco.

It's no wonder that all three CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers rank the Saints DST seventh or better this week. If you have them, play them.


Saints DST brings the heat


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2013) The Saints DST racked up five sacks while shutting down Carolina in a 31-13 win Week 14. Linebacker Junior Galette tallied three sacks, defensive end Cameron Jordan two. New Orleans is up to 43 sacks this season.

The Saints were unable to force a turnover, but they held the Panthers to 239 total yards and 16 first downs. New Orleans has a chance to repeat that success Week 15 when it visits struggling St. Louis.


Saints DST gets humbled in Seattle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) The Saints gave up a season-high 34 points in their loss at Seattle, though one touchdown was a defensive score. New Orleans had no answer for Russell Wilson, who accounted for 357 yards and three touchdowns without committing a turnover.

The Saints DST managed one sack, by linebacker Parys Haralson. The unit forced running back Marshawn Lynch to fumble in the first quarter, but Seattle recovered.

The Saints DST should have more success at home vs. the Panthers in Week 14.


Saints' pass rush comes up big in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2013) The Saints defense faced more pressure than normal in Week 12 against the Falcons, as they had to make up for a subpar showing from the offense. Fortunately, the DST unit held up well in a 17-13 win.

The Saints allowed the Falcons to amass 292 yards through the air, but held the passing game out of the end zone. Atlanta scored just one touchdown, on their first offensive drive, and were limited to field-goal tries from that point on.

The Saints held the Falcons to 355 yards of total offense in the game, and the defensive line played a key role. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan was taken down for sacks five times in the game. The game's lone turnover proved crucial as well, as wide receiver Darius Johnson lost a fumble in Saints' territory in the fourth quarter, with the Falcons attempting to mount a comeback.

The Saints DST unit more than held its own against the injury-riddled Falcons, but will likely face a stiffer test in Week 13. New Orleans has to travel to Seattle for a Monday night matchup with the Seahawks next week. 


Saints DST a solid Week 12 option


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) The Saints have recorded a sack in every game this season. They've failed to score double-digit Fantasy points just three times, and are in the top 10 of total points scored among DSTs – despite being one of two teams yet to score a defensive touchdown.

Week 12 brings a matchup against the Falcons, who have been a wonderful matchup for DSTs over the past four weeks. Defenses have intercepted nine of their passes in the last four games, recorded 10 sacks, and have scored 15 or more Fantasy points in three of the last four games against Atlanta.

The Saints have been one of the more pleasant DST surprises in 2013. They can be started in most Fantasy formats going forward.

Garrett Hartley comes through big Sunday for Saints


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Saints placekicker Garrett Hartley did a lot more than just kick three fourth-quarter field goals Sunday to break a slump. He booted a critical 42-yarder with two minutes left to tie the game against San Francisco and a 31-yarder to win it with just three seconds remaining.

Hartley entered the game having missed four of his last six attempts.


Saints defense fine, DST not so much for Fantasy owners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) If the Saints hadn't held San Francisco to a mere 196 total yards on Sunday, their DST would have been virtually valueless to Fantasy owners.

New Orleans created just one turnover, scored no touchdowns on defense or special teams, and registered three sacks in the victory.


Saints DST holds Cowboys under 200 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/11/2013) The Saints DST did not produce a turnover in the Week 10 blowout of the Cowboys, but otherwise turned in a strong performance. New Orleans held Dallas to 194 total yards and did not allow a third-down conversion.

Defensive ends Glenn Foster and Tom Johnson and linebacker Parys Haralson all registered sacks for the Saints, who have a tasty matchup Week 11 at home vs. the 49ers.
