Senio Kelemete
News
Healthy scratches dominate the inactive list released Sunday by the Saints in Cleveland. The lone two injured players are safety Marcus Ball (hamstring) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle).

The other inactives are wideouts Nick Toon and Joseph Morgan, cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, guard Senio Kelemente and defensive end Glenn Foster.

Brandin Cooks
News
In theory, Saints wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston should get more looks with tight end Jimmy Graham expected to miss Week 7 at Detroit with a sprained shoulder. The Saints' best options for replacing Graham are Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson, but neither of them are near the receiver he is. Hey, Drew Brees has to throw the ball somewhere.

The problem with that theory is that the Lions are so good against the pass (best in the NFL, actually, allowing just 197.2 yards per game) that more looks -- or a higher percentage of the looks, rather -- might not do either player much good.

At least in points-per-receptions leagues, Cooks is a worthy start. He's a high-volume guy and got his highest volume yet (nine catches on 11 targets) after Graham departed in Week 5, but you might want to steer clear of Colston, who's inconsistent to begin with.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him outside the top 30 for this week, to give you some perspective.

Terron Armstead
News
The Saints have released their final injury report prior to Week 5.

Jairus Byrd and Erik Lorig have been ruled out for the contest. The team also made eight players probable. Terron Armstead, Marcus Ball, Jonathan Goodwin, David Hawthorne, Curtis Lofton, Patrick Robinson, Benjamin Watson and Corey White should all play. 

Glenn Foster
News
Healthy scratches dominate the inactive list released Sunday by the Saints in Cleveland. The lone two injured players are safety Marcus Ball (hamstring) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle).

The other inactives are wideouts Nick Toon and Joseph Morgan, cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, guard Senio Kelemente and defensive end Glenn Foster.

Cheta Ozougwu
News
The Saints signed nose tackle Tyrone Ezell and linebacker Marcus Thompson and waived linebacker Cheta Ozougwu with a failed physical designation. Ezell has spent time with the Texans, and Thompson with the Dolphins.

Injury
Undisclosed - PUP. Eligible to return Week 7 at Detroit
Jahri Evans
News
The Saints will be without the following players for Friday's preseason game against the Titans: Drew Brees, Marques Colston, Champ Bailey, Rod Sweeting, Erik Lorig, David Hawthorne, Kyle Knox, Ben Grubbs, Jahri Evans, Ty Nsekhe, Victor Butler, John Jenkins, Kenny Stills, Je'Ron Hamm, Patrick Robinson and Jairus Byrd.
Ronald Powell
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the biggest question mark on Friday's injury report for Week 7 at Detroit.

Graham was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day and will likely be a game-time decision for the game. Graham along with defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring) were the only two players deemed questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ronald Powell (Illness), running back Pierre Thomas (illness), defensive back Keenan Lewis (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), running back Mark Ingram (hand) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were all ruled probable. Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Illness - Probable for Week 7 at Detroit
Ramon Humber

Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Injury
Ankle - Out for Week 7 at Detroit
Pierre Thomas
News
Saints running back Pierre Thomas told reporters he's still battling an illness, but insisted that he'll play Week 7 at Detroit, per ESPN. Thomas was a limited participant in practice on Friday and has been listed as probable for Sunday's game.
Injury
Illness - Probable for Week 7 at Detroit
Benjamin Watson
News
Although coach Sean Payton has been less than forthcoming about the situation, odds are Jimmy Graham misses Week 7 at Detroit with the shoulder sprain he suffered in Week 5, before the bye. The Saints  will have to turn to others at tight end.

Those others figure to be Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson. Jamey Eisenberg prefers one. Dave Richard prefers the other. Neither likes either enough to start in a standard 12-team league.

Part of the problem is that both contributed about the same numbers in Week 5, when Graham suffered the injury. Watson got more than twice as many targets, but Hill actually got a little more yardage. Of course, Watson also played 86 percent of the team's snaps to Hill's 35 percent.

To me, that's reason enough to side with Watson, but he'll get enough interference from Hill that we're talking only deep leagues here, as in 16 teams or more.

Cameron Jordan
News
Saints defensive lineman Cameron Jordan and defensive back Kenny Vaccaro, normally two of the more productive players on their defense, didn't do much Week 1 at Atlanta. Jordan had one solo tackle and Vaccaro had four.

Jordan was one of the league leaders in sacks last year with 12 1/2. Vaccaro had 79 tackles in only 14 games.

Brian Dixon
No Updates
Shayne Graham
News
Saints kicker Shayne Graham made three field goals and finished with a season-high 11 points during a 37-31 overtime win Week 5 against the Bucs. 

Graham made field goals of 29 and 30 yards in the first quarter, and then tied the game at 31 with a 44-yard field goal with 2:30 left in the fourth quarter. 

The Saints are back in action Week 7 at Detroit. The team is on a bye Week 6.

Erik Lorig
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the biggest question mark on Friday's injury report for Week 7 at Detroit.

Graham was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day and will likely be a game-time decision for the game. Graham along with defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring) were the only two players deemed questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ronald Powell (Illness), running back Pierre Thomas (illness), defensive back Keenan Lewis (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), running back Mark Ingram (hand) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were all ruled probable. Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Injury
Ankle - Probable for Week 7 at Detroit
Todd Davis

Travaris Cadet
News
With tight end Jimmy Graham (shoulder) expected to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, the Saints could go with more four-receiver looks and line up running back Travaris Cadet outside, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Cadet has 10 catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.
Tom Crabtree
News
The Saints waived tight end Tom Crabtree Saturday and signed inside linebacker Todd Davis to the active roster. Crabtree was signed earlier in October but did not make an appearance with the Saints.
A.J. Davis
News
The Saints signed linebacker Todd Davis, an undrafted free agent out of Sacramento State, and waived cornerback A.J. Davis, who spent last season on injured reserve.
Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Jairus Byrd
News
Saints defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, wide receiver Nick Toon, wide receiver Joe Morgan, linebacker Ronald Powell, running back Mark Ingram, fullback Erik Lorig and safety Jairus Byrd were all ruled inactive Week 5 vs. Tampa Bay.
Injury
Knee - IR. Out for the season
Tavon Rooks
News
The Saints have knocked their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players Saturday.

Among the offense players let go are center Matt Armstrong, wide receivers Seantavius Jones , Brandon Coleman and Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guards Jason Weaver and Marcel Jones, tackles Tavon Rooks and Thomas Welch and running backs Greg Jones and Derrick Strozier.

The defenders cut loose are cornerbacks Trevin Wade, Terrence Frederick and Derrius Brooks, linebackers Keyunta Dawson and Todd Davis, tackle Lawrence Virgil, safety Pierre Warren.

Placekickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke are also out.

Drew Brees
News
Anyone who owns Drew Brees in Fantasy has been at least a little disappointed with the numbers he's delivered so far. But with an average of 314.8 yards per game and two touchdown passes in each of the last four games, he hasn't given anyone reason to consider sitting him.

But that changes in Week 7. The Saints are facing the league's toughest pass defense in Detroit, which made the Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater look hopelessly inept in Week 6 and limited the Packers' Aaron Rodgers to 162 yards in Week 3. That's just what the Lions do. They're the only team allowing fewer than 200 passing yards per game and have given up the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks by far.

And then there's the matter of Brees being without star tight end Jimmy Graham for the first time this season. Between that, the killer matchup and the fact he hasn't been knock-you-over-good, we have a recipe for something radical.

Jamey Eisenberg still ranks Brees a respectable ninth at quarterback for this week, but I lean more Dave Richard's way. I'll go ahead and say it: I'm benching Brees for Joe Flacco in one league.

Parys Haralson
News
The Saints have agreed to a one-year deal with linebacker Parys Haralson Tuesday, the financial terms of which are not yet known.

Haralson appeared in all 16 games for the Saints after he was acquired in a preseason trade. He recorded 35 tackles -- 16 solo -- and 3.5 sacks in eight starts. He is an eight-year veteran. 

Akiem Hicks
News
Saints defensive end Akiem Hicks is poised for a breakout season, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Hicks (6-5, 324) recorded 4.5 sacks and 56 tackles in his first full year as a starter.

"Akiem is a monster," fellow defensive end Cameron Jordan told the paper. "That dude is a monster."

Alex Parsons
News
Brandon Coleman
News
The Saints have knocked their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players Saturday.

Among the offense players let go are center Matt Armstrong, wide receivers Seantavius Jones , Brandon Coleman and Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guards Jason Weaver and Marcel Jones, tackles Tavon Rooks and Thomas Welch and running backs Greg Jones and Derrick Strozier.

The defenders cut loose are cornerbacks Trevin Wade, Terrence Frederick and Derrius Brooks, linebackers Keyunta Dawson and Todd Davis, tackle Lawrence Virgil, safety Pierre Warren.

Placekickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke are also out.

Josh Hill
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham told reporters he's unsure if he'll play Week 7 at Detroit because of a nagging shoulder injury, according to ESPN. Graham told reporters Friday he believes his status will come down to the coach's evaluation during pregame warmups.

Graham suffered a shoulder sprain Week 5 against Tampa Bay but returned to practice for the first time as a limited participant on Thursday. He was a limited participant on Friday as well and has been officially ruled as questionable. If he's unable to play on Sunday, the team will likely turn to Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson for all the tight end targets against the Lions.

Ty Zimmerman
News
Saints wide receiver Andy Tanner, safety Ty Zimmerman and tackle Ty Nsekhe cleared waivers Tuesday and have been placed on injured reserve, the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Injury
Undisclosed - IR. Out for season
Austin Johnson
News
Wide receiver Kenny Stills led a contingent of Saints that made minor contributions to their defeat of Minnesota on Sunday.

Stills finished with four catches for 38 yards. Robert Meachen had one reception for 23 yards while backup tight end Benjamin Watson pitched in with a catch for 10 yards.

Little-used running backs Travaris Cadet and Austin Johnson added nine and two yards on the ground, respectively.

Terrence Frederick
News
The Saints have knocked their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players Saturday.

Among the offense players let go are center Matt Armstrong, wide receivers Seantavius Jones , Brandon Coleman and Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guards Jason Weaver and Marcel Jones, tackles Tavon Rooks and Thomas Welch and running backs Greg Jones and Derrick Strozier.

The defenders cut loose are cornerbacks Trevin Wade, Terrence Frederick and Derrius Brooks, linebackers Keyunta Dawson and Todd Davis, tackle Lawrence Virgil, safety Pierre Warren.

Placekickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke are also out.

Zach Strief
News
Saints right tackle Zach Strief on Monday will re-sign with the team for five years, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He became a starter in 2011 and is coming off perhaps his best season.

The deal averages $4.1 million annually, with Strief getting $8.5 million guaranteed.

Jonathan Goodwin
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the biggest question mark on Friday's injury report for Week 7 at Detroit.

Graham was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day and will likely be a game-time decision for the game. Graham along with defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring) were the only two players deemed questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ronald Powell (Illness), running back Pierre Thomas (illness), defensive back Keenan Lewis (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), running back Mark Ingram (hand) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were all ruled probable. Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Brodrick Bunkley
News
Saints nose tackle Brodrick Bunkley agreed to a pay cut and will earn $1.3 million instead of $4.4 million this season.
Tim Lelito
News
Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan (knee) is probable for Week 3 against the Vikings, after getting through Friday's practice without issue.

Additionally, offensive lineman Jonathan Goodwin (elbow) is probable, while guard Tim Lelito (back) is questionable for Sunday's game. 

Justin Drescher
No Updates
David Hawthorne
News
The Saints have released their final injury report prior to Week 5.

Jairus Byrd and Erik Lorig have been ruled out for the contest. The team also made eight players probable. Terron Armstead, Marcus Ball, Jonathan Goodwin, David Hawthorne, Curtis Lofton, Patrick Robinson, Benjamin Watson and Corey White should all play. 

Ryan Griffin
News
The Saints will sign quarterback Ryan Griffin to the team's practice squad after clearing waivers Wednesday, NOLA.com reports.

Griffin spent some of his rookie season last year on the practice squad before eventually moving to the active roster. He lost a camp battle to Luke McCown during the preseason and didn't survive final roster cuts.

Khiry Robinson
News
Saints running back Mark Ingram is expected back in the lineup Week 7 at Detroit, but how much he'll play coming off a three-game, four-week absence for a broken hand is to be determined.

Starting him in Fantasy already causes enough anxiety, what with Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson also in the picture. Robinson performed well in Ingram's absence and could spell him more in the beginning as a result, and Thomas, because of his receiving ability, could play more if the Saints' fall behind, which is distinctly possible given that the Lions are No. 1 against the pass.

They're not such a great matchup for the running backs either, allowing just 73.5 rushing yards per game, second-fewest in the league.

If you're going to start a Saints running back in standard leagues, it should probably be Ingram since he's the best bet to get the ball at the goal line, but you probably shouldn't start a Saints running back in standard leagues. Thomas is OK in points-per-reception leagues.

Tyrunn Walker
News
Saints running back Pierre Thomas (chest) is the lone injured player on the inactive report for the Saturday playoff battle in Seattle.

The healthy scratches are quarterback Ryan Griffin, corernback Terrence Frederick, linebacker Rufus Johnson, safety Jordan Pugh, defensive end Tyrunn Walker and wide receiver Nick Toon.

Rafael Bush
News
The Saints matched the Falcons' offer sheet for restricted free agent safety Rafael Bush, so he'll stay with New Orleans on a two-year, $4.5 million deal, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Mark Ingram
News
Saints running back Mark Ingram, who missed the previous three games with a broken hand, was a full participant in practice on Friday and has been officially deemed probable for Week 7 at Detroit, per the team's official website.

Ingram ran for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the first two games before getting hurt. His role on offense remains uncertain for Sunday.

Injury
Hand - Probable for Week 7 at Detroit
Marcus Ball
News
The Saints have released their final injury report prior to Week 5.

Jairus Byrd and Erik Lorig have been ruled out for the contest. The team also made eight players probable. Terron Armstead, Marcus Ball, Jonathan Goodwin, David Hawthorne, Curtis Lofton, Patrick Robinson, Benjamin Watson and Corey White should all play. 

Robert Meachem
News
Several Saints made minor contributions to the offense in the Sunday loss to Cleveland. Among them was Robert Meachem, who managed three catches for 37 yards. Fellow wideout Kenny Stills also snagged three for 25 yards.

Backup tight end Benjamin Watson added one reception for four yards. Fullback Austin Johnson pitched in with 10 yards on two carries.

Seantavius Jones
News
The Saints have knocked their roster down to 53 by waiving a number of players Saturday.

Among the offense players let go are center Matt Armstrong, wide receivers Seantavius Jones , Brandon Coleman and Charles Hawkins, tight end Nic Jacobs, guards Jason Weaver and Marcel Jones, tackles Tavon Rooks and Thomas Welch and running backs Greg Jones and Derrick Strozier.

The defenders cut loose are cornerbacks Trevin Wade, Terrence Frederick and Derrius Brooks, linebackers Keyunta Dawson and Todd Davis, tackle Lawrence Virgil, safety Pierre Warren.

Placekickers Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke are also out.

Orson Charles
News
The Saints signed tight end Orson Charles to the practice squad Tuesday, NOLA.com reports. Charles was a fourth-round draft pick by the Bengals in 2012.

Stanley Jean-Baptiste
News
As expected, running back Mark Ingram (hand) is on the inactive list issued by the Saints for their Week 3 game against Minnesota. Also out with injuries are safety Marcus Ball (hamstring), fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) and linebacker David Hawthorne (ankle).

The healthy scratches are cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, nose tackle John Jenkins and wide receiver Nick Toon.

Corey White
News
The Saints have released their final injury report prior to Week 5.

Jairus Byrd and Erik Lorig have been ruled out for the contest. The team also made eight players probable. Terron Armstead, Marcus Ball, Jonathan Goodwin, David Hawthorne, Curtis Lofton, Patrick Robinson, Benjamin Watson and Corey White should all play. 

Jimmy Graham
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham told reporters he's unsure if he'll play Week 7 at Detroit because of a nagging shoulder injury, according to ESPN. Graham told reporters Friday he believes his status will come down to the coach's evaluation during pregame warmups.

Graham suffered a shoulder sprain Week 5 against Tampa Bay but returned to practice for the first time as a limited participant on Thursday. He was a limited participant on Friday as well and has been officially ruled as questionable. If he's unable to play on Sunday, the team will likely turn to Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson for all the tight end targets against the Lions.

Injury
Shoulder - Questionable for Week 7 at Detroit
Kenny Vaccaro
News
Saints defensive lineman Cameron Jordan and defensive back Kenny Vaccaro, normally two of the more productive players on their defense, didn't do much Week 1 at Atlanta. Jordan had one solo tackle and Vaccaro had four.

Jordan was one of the league leaders in sacks last year with 12 1/2. Vaccaro had 79 tackles in only 14 games.

Patrick Robinson
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the biggest question mark on Friday's injury report for Week 7 at Detroit.

Graham was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day and will likely be a game-time decision for the game. Graham along with defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring) were the only two players deemed questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ronald Powell (Illness), running back Pierre Thomas (illness), defensive back Keenan Lewis (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), running back Mark Ingram (hand) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were all ruled probable. Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 at Detroit
Luke McCown
News
Saints backup quarterback Luke McCown got the start in Friday's preseason game against the Titans, and did a good job piloting the offense in a 31-24 win.

McCown led the offense through the first half compiling 117 yards through the air while completing 12 of 20 passes successfully. He tossed  a pair of touchdowns to Jimmy Graham as well. 

McCown is expected to open the season as the Saints' No. 2 quarterback.  

Vinnie Sunseri
News
With pick No. 167 in the NFL Draft, the Saints selected safety Vinnie Sunseri from Alabama.

Sunseri is coming off a torn ACL from last October, so his status for training camp is questionable. He will likely be given time to heal, since the Saints don't need him right away.

When healthy, the Saints can use Sunseri on special teams since they are entrenched at safety with Kenny Vaccaro and Jairus Byrd.

Brandon Deaderick
News
Saints defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, wide receiver Nick Toon, wide receiver Joe Morgan, linebacker Ronald Powell, running back Mark Ingram, fullback Erik Lorig and safety Jairus Byrd were all ruled inactive Week 5 vs. Tampa Bay.

Jamey Eisenberg considers Jordan Matthews of the Eagles, Brian Quick of the Rams, Allen Robinson of the Jaguars, James Jones of the Raiders and Hakeem Nicks of the Colts the first five receivers you should be targeting on waivers ahead of Week 4.

Additionally, Riley Cooper, Greg Jennings, Jarrett Boykin, Kenny Stills and Miles Austin are mentioned as possibly worth dropping if you need the roster spot right away.

Marques Colston
News
In theory, Saints wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Marques Colston should get more looks with tight end Jimmy Graham expected to miss Week 7 at Detroit with a sprained shoulder. The Saints' best options for replacing Graham are Josh Hill and Benjamin Watson, but neither of them are near the receiver he is. Hey, Drew Brees has to throw the ball somewhere.

The problem with that theory is that the Lions are so good against the pass (best in the NFL, actually, allowing just 197.2 yards per game) that more looks -- or a higher percentage of the looks, rather -- might not do either player much good.

At least in points-per-receptions leagues, Cooks is a worthy start. He's a high-volume guy and got his highest volume yet (nine catches on 11 targets) after Graham departed in Week 5, but you might want to steer clear of Colston, who's inconsistent to begin with.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank him outside the top 30 for this week, to give you some perspective.

Keenan Lewis
News
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is the biggest question mark on Friday's injury report for Week 7 at Detroit.

Graham was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day and will likely be a game-time decision for the game. Graham along with defensive back Patrick Robinson (hamstring) were the only two players deemed questionable for Sunday.

Meanwhile, linebacker Ronald Powell (Illness), running back Pierre Thomas (illness), defensive back Keenan Lewis (toe), center Jonathan Goodwin (knee), running back Mark Ingram (hand) and fullback Erik Lorig (ankle) were all ruled probable. Linebackers Ramon Humber (ankle) and Kyle Knox (ankle) were the only two players to be ruled out for the game.

Toe - Probable for Week 7 at Detroit
