  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Underwhelming production in 2021

    Callaway caught 46 of 84 targets for 698 yards and six touchdowns over 17 games in 2021.

    With Michael Thomas (ankle) on the shelf all season, Callaway consistently handled heavy snap counts for New Orleans both before and after Tre'Quan Smith made his season debut in Week 7. However, the 6-foot-2 receiver only ran a route on 53 percent of his snaps and he was only targeted on 19.5 percent of his routes - less than each of Deonte Harris, Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram, Ty Montgomery and Adam Trautman. While Callaway still put together a couple of nice games this year, this underwhelming usage led to inconsistent stat lines that made him hard to trust in fantasy lineups. Unless the Saints get a dramatic upgrade at quarterback in the offseason, things could get worse for Callaway in 2022 with Thomas set to reprise his role as the team's undisputed top option at receiver.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Nearly hits century mark

    Callaway caught six of 10 targets for 97 yards in Sunday's 18-10 win over the Panthers.

    He very nearly topped 100 yards for the second time in the last three games, but Callaway had to content himself with being Taysom Hill's top option in the passing game. His developing chemistry with the QB -- Callaway has a 16-255-0 line on 24 targets over those three games -- bodes well for his chances of another big performance in Week 18 against the Falcons, as the Saints will be trying to claim a wild-card spot.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Four catches in blowout loss

    Callaway caught four of five targets for 46 yards during Monday's 20-3 loss to Miami.

    Callaway was the Saints' best source of offense in the first half, catching three balls for 42 yards despite the rest of the Ian Book-led offense doing next to nothing. However, he was unable to overcome extra defensive attention that ensued once Tre'Quan Smith (chest) was knocked out of the game. While Callaway would be cemented as New Orleans' No. 1 wideout if Smith can't play in Week 17 against Carolina, we now have proof that all Saints' skill players will have a dangerously low floor if Book is forced to make another start in place of Taysom Hill (COVID-19) or Trevor Siemian (COVID-19).

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Posts 112 yards in win

    Callaway caught six of nine targets for 112 receiving yards in Sunday's 9-0 win over the Buccaneers.

    Callaway was the lone skill position player for either team to eclipse the century mark in what turned out to be a defensive showdown. The 23-year-old finally broke free for a big 40-yard leaping reception in the second half after the Saints offense dinked and dunked for the majority of the contest. This was Callaway's first 100-plus yard receiving game this season, and he totaled just 47 yards in his previous two games with Taysom Hill under center, so fantasy managers shouldn't overreact to this strong performance heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Dolphins.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Another quiet game

    Callaway caught two of four targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-9 win over the Jets.

    Callaway hasn't reached 40 receiving yards in a game since Week 5, and he's seen exactly four targets in each of the last five games. He'll be a touchdown-dependent, boom-or-bust option against the Buccaneers in Week 15, having found the end zone six times this season despite the modest target volume.
