Player Outlook
Callaway had his chance to establish himself as a go-to receiver in New Orleans, but he didn't do enough. At least, that's what the Saints' actions suggest after they drafted Chris Olave in Round 1, then signed veteran slot guy Jarvis Landry and plan on having stud outside receiver Michael Thomas back. It doesn't leave much opportunity for Callaway unless someone gets hurt, which isn't really that big of a loss for Fantasy managers since he had just three games with 15-plus PPR points in 2021. You can do better with a late-round pick.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Returns for minicamp

    Callaway (thumb) participated in June minicamp, the Saints' official website reports. Callaway had thumb surgery early in the offseason, but there weren't any reports of limitations at spring practices. His bigger concern for this year is a beefed-up WR room that now has Jarvis Landry and first-round pick Chris Olave joining Callaway, Michael Thomas (ankle), Deonte Harty and Tre'Quan Smith. There's still some opportunity for Callaway to earn a top-three spot on the depth chart -- especially if Thomas isn't ready for Week 1 -- but the 24-year-old Callaway could just as easily drop to the No. 4/5 role after starting 11 games last season.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Recovering from thumb surgery

    Callaway had offseason surgery on his thumb, Nader Mirfiq of Rare Media Live reports. Callaway has plenty of time to recover before training camp, at which point he'll likely be in the mix for the Saints' second or third wideout spot. Michael Thomas is expected to come back as the far-and-away No. 1, with Callaway and Deonte Harris the current favorites to earn key roles behind Thomas among the team's holdovers from 2021. While he fell far short of the summer hype, Callaway did finish last season with a respectable 46-698-6 receiving line on 84 targets, making him the leading receiver for one of the league's worst passing attacks.

  • 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: 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.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: One catch against Dallas

    Callaway caught one of four passes for 13 yards during Thursday's 27-17 loss to Dallas. Callaway continues to command a large snap share and subsequently run a lot of routes, but the Tennessee product has topped five targets in only three games this year. This lowly workload has made him a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, and things are unlikely to get better with the dual-threat Taysom Hill (finger) playing through a torn ligament in a finger on his throwing hand.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Touchdown streak ends

    Callaway caught two of four targets for 24 yards during Thursday's 31-6 loss to the Bills. Callaway was targeted on both short and deep passes, but he was unable to find the end zone for the first time since Trevor Siemian took over at quarterback. Making matters worse was that Callaway again was held below six targets, three receptions and 37 receiving yards with Siemian under center. Unless the Saints make some sort of change at quarterback, Callaway will be hard to trust as anything more than a touchdown-dependent fantasy asset.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Makes most of one catch

    Callaway brought in one of four targets for a 26-yard touchdown in the Saints' 40-29 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. Callaway saved his fantasy day with his scoring grab, which came at the start of the fourth quarter and marked the Saints' first score since early in the second quarter. The second-year wideout hasn't topped 40 receiving yards since Week 5, but he's now recorded a touchdown reception in three consecutive contests. Callaway's next assignment is a tough one, considering New Orleans hosts the Bills for a Thanksgiving showdown in Week 12.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Scores fourth TD of season

    Callaway caught three of six targets for 25 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-25 loss to Atlanta. Callaway had a seventh target that he dropped, but the play was nullified by a penalty. Even if it had counted, Callaway still wouldn't be averaging five targets per game on the year. While this modest volume was worth a roll of the dice when Jameis Winston (knee) was available, losing Winston for the season was a blow to Callaway's outlook, even if the indefinite absence of Michael Thomas (ankle) means Callaway won't have to share the top of the depth chart. Whether it's Trevor Siemian or Taysom Hill at quarterback for New Orleans in Week 10 against Tennessee, Callaway probably will need to find the end zone to be of use in fantasy lineups.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Handles five targets

    Callaway caught three of five targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 36-27 win over Tampa Bay. Now seven games into the year, Callaway has topped 50 receiving yards just twice. Things won't get any easier if Jameis Winston (knee) is forced to miss time, as New Orleans is likely to revert to a highly run-heavy gameplan if Taysom Hill (concussion) or Trevor Siemian needs to run the offense. Combined with the return of Tre'Quan Smith and the impending return of Michael Thomas (ankle), it wouldn't be surprising if Callaway's huge Week 5 performance against Washington goes down as an anomaly come season's end.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Cools down in Seattle

    Callaway caught three of seven targets for 32 yards in Monday's 13-10 win over the Seahawks. Callaway got open in the back of the end zone on New Orleans' first scoring drive, but a Seattle linebacker was able to knock the ball down on its way to Callaway, forcing the Saints to settle for a field goal. He led all Saints wide receivers in catches, targets and receiving yards, as running back Alvin Kamara (128 receiving yards and a touchdown) was the only New Orleans pass-catcher that was able to get going in this one. Callaway had totaled three touchdowns in his previous three games, and this was his lowest yardage total since Week 2, so he'll likely bounce back in Week 8 against the Buccaneers.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Finds end zone twice

    Callaway caught four of eight targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington. The second-year receiver tied Alvin Kamara for the team lead in targets and finished one back in receptions, but Callaway led the Saints in receiving thanks largely to a 49-yard TD on a hail mary at the end of the first half. He then snagged a 12-yard strike from Jameis Winston early in the fourth quarter as New Orleans pulled away. Callaway will head into a Week 6 bye with 13 catches on 21 targets for 222 yards and three scores, but he could face additional competition for Winston's attention on the other side of the break with both Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) eligible to return.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Nets 74 receiving yards

    Callaway caught two of two targets for 74 yards during Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to the Giants. Callaway was silent before popping for a 58-yard gain at the start of the third quarter. Meanwhile, Deonte Harris easily paced the team with eight targets while no other Saints player saw more than three. Though Callaway is technically the No. 1 perimeter option while Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) are sidelined, his upside is clearly capped by a low-volume New Orleans passing game that saw Jameis Winston set a season high with 23 passing attempts Sunday. However, his low floor is at least coupled with a high ceiling in Week 5 against a Washington defense that has surrendered 10 passing scores through four weeks.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Leads team in receiving

    Callaway had four receptions (five targets) for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-13 win over the Patriots. Callaway turned in his best performance of the season as the Saints move to 2-1. He continues to serve as the club's top option at wide receiver, but that hadn't resulted in much fantasy production due to the conservative nature of New Orleans' offensive game plan. Callaway will look to build on this performance in a soft matchup against the Giants next Sunday.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Two catches in Sunday's loss

    Callaway caught two of four targets for eight yards in Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers. Jameis Winston only completed 11 passes all afternoon in a truly terrible performance, but Callaway still led all Saints' wideouts in catches and targets. The second-year player still appears to be atop the depth chart for New Orleans, but between a blowout win in Week 1 and a complete no-show by the Saints' offense in Week 2, he hasn't had much of a chance to turn that role into real volume. Callaway faces a potentially tough matchup next week as well, on the road against the Patriots.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Primed for No. 1 role

    Callaway enters Week 1 against Green Bay as the Saints' likely No. 1 receiver, while Michael Thomas (ankle) is out for at least five games and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) for at least three, Amie Just of The Times-Picayune reports. Thomas is on the PUP list, and Smith is on injured reserve. Callaway barely made the team as an undrafted rookie last season, but he now finds himself as the likely go-to receiver for Jameis Winston, who otherwise has Alvin Kamara and a couple of young, unproven tight ends. Callaway caught eight of nine targets for 165 yards in two preseason games, including a pair of TDs from Winston. The Saints' depth chart behind Callaway doesn't offer much, with Deonte Harris, Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Chris Hogan and Ty Montgomery all candidates to handle various roles.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Sensational versus Jaguars

    Callaway caught all five of his targets for 104 yards and two touchdowns in Monday night's 23-21 preseason win over the Jaguars. Callaway was the star of the show, hauling in a 43-yard touchdown while being interfered with to cap New Orleans' opening drive. He then made an incredible, one-handed catch while outstretched for a 29-yard score two series later. In doing so, the second-year pro showed a great connection with quarterback Jameis Winston, which should bode well for Callaway as he approaches the regular season. With Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) sidelined to this point, Callaway has operated as the Saints' top wideout and impressed in that role. Smith seems a safe bet to be ready to play Week 1, but Callaway certainly has capitalized on his recent opportunity, putting his stock on the rise as coach Sean Payton likely embraces a more vertical passing game this season.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Hot start in preseason opener

    Callaway caught three of four targets for 61 yards in Saturday's 17-14 preseason loss to the Ravens. Callaway has been the favorite practice target for both Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston, and his rapport with the former was evident on the opening drive, when Callaway caught all three of his targets for 61 yards. His only other target over the next two possessions resulted in an incomplete pass, though. With Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) both sidelined by injuries, Callaway has established himself as the Saints' top healthy receiver, and he could retain that title over Smith for the duration of Thomas' absence, which is expected to last well into the regular season. Callaway will look to strengthen his case in Week 2 of the preseason against Jacksonville.

  • Saints' Marquez Callaway: Operating as No. 1 receiver

    Callaway is operating as the Saints' No. 1 receiver in training camp by default, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports. With Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (undisclosed) sidelined while Deonte Harris faces a possible suspension for off-field conduct, Callaway seems to have a solid chance to open the regular season as the team's clear top receiver. Not only has he reportedly caught more passes than any other wideout during training camp, but Callaway is "by far" the go-to option for quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill. While it's possible that Smith and Harris could both be available for Week 1, Callaway will probably have a significant role in the passing game regardless of their status.
