Player Outlook

Ted Ginn won't quite replace Brandin Cooks in New Orleans, at least not statistically, but it doesn't mean he won't have a good role and a chance at some really good weeks. Ginn's deep speed, combined with the Saints' fast track at home and their really good quarterback creates a positive environment for Fantasy stats. In a more run-oriented offense in Carolina the last two seasons, Ginn had nearly 100 targets per season, with over 700 yards and 14 total scores. His catch rate wasn't great but the number of opportunities and the end result stood out. Entering his 11th season, Ginn is still one of the league's fastest receivers. Even with the reputation of dropping passes from time to time (including seven last season), he's in the right spot to help Fantasy owners as a quality reserve during bye weeks or in deeper formats. Round 11 is a good time to take a spin on Ginn. 

Player News
  • Head coach Sean Payton said he has a clear vision for how the team will use Ginn, the Saints' official site reports. "I see [Ginn] playing at flanker," said Payton. "I see him being a guy that can take the top off the coverage. I like what this guy does." It sounds like Ginn will have a spot on the outside across from Michael Thomas in three-wide formations, with Willie Snead manning the slot. The plan could change if the Saints use a high draft pick on a receiver, but the team is expected to go defense-heavy in the early rounds. In addition to his key role in the offense, Ginn likely will be in the mix for punt and/or kick return duties, an area in which he provided much value earlier in his career. Although he'll celebrate his 32nd birthday prior to the 2017 draft, Ginn is still one of the fastest receivers in the league, and he's become more of a threat on offense over the past few seasons.

  • Ginn will help replace Brandin Cooks as a downfield threat alongside Michael Thomas and Willie Snead, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. The Saints actually signed the soon-to-be 32-year-old before they traded Cooks, but it's hard to argue the two moves weren't related. Ginn can't be considered a direct replacement for the team's 2016 receiving yardage leader, but he can help to stretch opposing defenses the way Cooks so often did. Coming off back-to-back seasons in Carolina with more than 700 receiving yards, Ginn signed a three-year, $11 million contract with New Orleans -- making him the clear favorite for the No. 3 receiver role. The 2016 New Orleans offense produced three wideouts with 72 or more catches and 895 or more yards, with Willie Snead bringing up the rear in both categories among the trio. Snead and Michael Thomas figure to take on some of Cooks' vacated targets, but Ginn could also play a big role in replacing the speedy young wideout.

  • Saints' Ted Ginn: Signing with New Orleans confirmed
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ginn officially signed with the Saints on Friday. As expected, Ginn found a new home within the NFC South after spending three of the past four seasons in Carolina. He'll likely serve as a return specialist and deep threat for the Saints, with his presence potentially making it easier to stomach a trade sending Brandin Cooks out of town. Cooks has been the subject of trade rumors the past few weeks, as the Saints badly need to improve on defense and already have two other talented young wideouts in Michael Thomas and Willie Snead. Should Cooks ultimately be dealt, Ginn could earn a regular spot in three-wide formations in a potent New Orleans offense.

  • Ginn is expected to sign with the Saints, ESPN's Dianna Russini‏ reports. Ginn bolsters a New Orleans wideout corps that also includes Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and Brandin Cooks, though his signing could potentially foreshadow the possible departure of Cooks via a trade. Ginn, who turns 32 in April, is coming off a 2016 season with the Panthers in which he caught 54 passes (on 95 targets) for 752 yards and four TDs in 16 games.

  • Ginn secured four of seven targets for 69 yards in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Bucs. He also rushed for 24 yards on two rushes and netted zero yards on one punt return. Ginn had a touchdown called back and instead settled for a 39-yard gain on a play where his knee was ruled to have come down before he stood back up and continued running downfield. Nevertheless, the speedy veteran checked in second to Kelvin Benjamin in receptions and yardage on the Panthers in the contest, while equaling the latter's team-high seven targets. Despite his reputation as a downfield threat with suspect hands, Ginn turned in a serviceable performance as a No. 2 receiver in 2016, posting the second-best career reception (54) and yardage (752) totals of his career.
