Saints' Josh Hill: Again held without a catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Hill did not have a catch in Sunday's loss to Washington.

A week after hauling in his second touchdown pass of the season, Hill once again went under-utilized in the New Orleans Saints ' offense. Hill played on only 19 of the Saints' 57 offensive snaps, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and he remains firmly behind Ben Watson in the tight end pecking order. Absent an injury to Watson, Hill should be left on waiver wires in nearly all leagues.

Saints' Ben Watson: Only 19 receiving yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Benjamin Watson caught three passes on five targets for 19 yards in Sunday's loss in Washington.

Watson had recently emerged as one of Drew Brees' favorite targets the last few weeks, but he crashed back to Earth on Sunday. Despite the disappointing output, Watson remained heavily involved in the offense, as he played 49 of the New Orleans Saints ' 57 offensive snaps (86 percent), according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. He may never be an elite weapon at this stage of his career, but Watson is firmly in the tight end mix as a weekly option for fantasy teams. Owners, however, will have to wait an extra week for Watson's services, as the Saints will be on bye in Week 11, before a Week 12 tilt against the Texans.

Saints' C.J. Spiller: Season-high eight carries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

C.J. Spiller gained 24 yards on eight carries and added another 10 yards on two receptions on two targets in Sunday's loss in Washington.

With Mark Ingram getting dinged up in the first half (he would later return), Spiller's workload increased, and the eight carries represent a season-high. Still, even when Ingram was sidelined, Spiller was forced to split carries with Tim Hightower, who actually out-carried Spiller 11-8. While Khiry Robinson's season-ending injury gives his value a slight boost, it's becoming readily apparent that the New Orleans Saints do not appear willing to give Spiller anything close to resembling a consistent workload, which severely limits his value. The Saints will be on bye in Week 11 before taking on Houston in Week 12.

Saints' Willie Snead: Held without a catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Willie Snead did not have a catch in Sunday's loss at Washington.

Snead, who was dealing with a sore knee, missed most of the week's practices leading up to Sunday, and he played only 38 of the New Orleans Saints ' 57 offensive snaps (67 percent), his fewest since Week 1, according to the . As such, it is not unreasonable to infer that Snead was limited by his injury, which might explain his Week 10 dud. Although Brandin Cooks continues to re-emerge as Drew Brees' top target, Snead's role as the Saints' No. 2 receiver is secure. Snead will have a chance to heal up during the Saints' Week 11 bye, and a favorable matchup against Houston awaits in Week 12.

Saints' Brandin Cooks: Stays hot in loss to Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brandin Cooks caught five of his eight targets for 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Redskins. He also gained 11 yards on his lone carry.

The second-year wideout provided all of the New Orleans Saints ' offense on the day, catching a short score in the first quarter before torching the Redskins for a 60-yarder in the second. Cooks has now caught five touchdowns in his last three games and has averaged over 80 yards receiving in the last six. The speedster will look to continue his recent success in Week 12 against the Texans, following next week's bye.
