Wide receiver Joseph Morgan re-signed with the
How much Morgan actually plays is up in the air, but based on Payton's comments, it appears that the speedy receiver could be used to spell top receiver Brandin Cooks. Morgan is certainly familiar with Drew Brees and the Saints' offense, so there should not be any acclimation period. However it remains a question whether he will see enough playing time to make a fantasy impact. Still, even with only limited snaps, Morgan has the sort of big-play capabilities that could make him useful in daily fantasy formats.
“I think he provides great speed on the outside,” Payton said of Morgan. “And that’s something that from a game-plan standpoint, if you’re just running (Brandin) Cooks vertical, then at some point he gets tired. So I think having Joe, there’s another element of speed, he’s a very physical player, takes pride in blocking. So he’ll have a role in this game. He’ll play in this game.”
Morgan was waived in December following a suspension due to unspecified reasons.
"A lot of people been saying it's my off-field issues or whatever, I'm not a troubled guy, Sean even told me that in the meeting I had with him. It's nothing to do with the off-field issues, it was basically the team making a decision based off what they like and they are making plans for the future and unfortunately I wasn't a part of that," Morgan said in December.
Morgan missed the 2013 season because of a torn ACL, and was suspended two games at the start of this season for undisclosed reasons. He caught just four passes for 92 yards this season before he was reportedly waived by New Orleans.
