Saints' Brandon Coleman: Returning to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman will re-sign with the Saints, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Coleman opened the offseason as a restricted free agent but was made an unrestricted free agent after the Saints declined to extend him a qualifying offer. However, it turns out that Coleman won't be going anywhere, and he'll rejoin a New Orleans depth chart that recently added Cameron Meredith (knee) to slot in as the No. 3 wideout behind starters Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn. That means Coleman is likely set to compete with the likes of Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis for one of the final roster spots at receiver, though Coleman figures to have a leg up given his effectiveness as a blocker in the run game.

Saints' Brandon Coleman: Non-tendered by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints didn't tender Coleman a contract for the 2018 season Wednesday, making the receiver an unrestricted free agent, Nick Underhill of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

Coleman hits the open market following a 2017 campaign in which he caught only 23 passes despite serving as the Saints' No. 3 wideout for most of the season. The Rutgers product was efficient with his limited opportunities the past three years in New Orleans, producing 8.8 yards per target while scoring on eight of his 79 catches. The Saints are devoting most of their cap space to Drew Brees and the defense during the upcoming season, perhaps setting up an offensive-minded draft in April. Coleman will find an opportunity to compete for a depth receiver job elsewhere, unless he signs with the Saints for less than the original-round restricted free-agent tender.

Saints' Brandon Coleman: Ruled out this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Vikings.

With Coleman -- who hauled in four passes for 44 yards in last weekend's wild-card win over the Panthers -- unavailable this week, Willie Snead figures to see added opportunities in the Saints offense Sunday, while working behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn.

Saints' Brandon Coleman: Nursing neck injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman didn't practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Since posting at least 30 receiving yards in five of the Saints' first nine contests, Coleman compiled a minuscule eight receptions (on 13 targets) for 82 yards the rest of the regular season. Due to the scarce attention paid to him by Drew Brees during that span, Coleman's outing Sunday against the Panthers came as a surprise. Targeted first among Saints skill-position players, Coleman hauled in four of five passes for 44 yards by game's end. There's no guarantee he'll be as involved in Sunday's divisional-round matchup at Minnesota, but first he must ditch his injury in order to have any chance to replicate the previous performance.

Saints' Brandon Coleman: Best game in months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman caught four passes on five targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 31-26 playoff win against the Panthers.

The Saints' No. 3 receiver was targeted on Drew Brees' first pass of the game and remained involved throughout the victory. In fact, Sunday's contest marked the most yards Coleman has accrued since Week 7 and most catches since Week 2. Coleman has a tendency to disappear in games, which often makes him a risky fantasy choice in many leagues. However, as the playoff field and corresponding fantasy options dwindle, desperate owners could do worse than the 6-foot-6 receiver, despite a difficult test against a tough Vikings secondary next week.
