Saints' John Kuhn: Returns to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhn re-signed with the Saints on Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

The Saints previously released Kuhn on Sunday in a procedural move that allowed the team to make multiple waiver claims, but it was expected all along that the fullback would ultimately be brought back. It took just three days for Kuhn to officially become a Saint again, and despite dealing with a minor calf injury at the close of the exhibition schedule, he's on track to take the field Week 1. Kuhn has plenty of experience in short-yardage situations, though New Orleans has too crowded a backfield for him to become relevant in most formats.

John Kuhn: Released by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kuhn (calf) was released by the Saints on Sunday, John Katzenstein of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Kuhn is currently dealing with a minor calf injury, and despite being expected to take the field from Week 1, he was cut in order to make room for a pair of waiver claims made by the Saints this weekend. Kuhn has established himself as one of the most reliable fullbacks in the NFL, however, so he should be high priority for any team with a need at the position.

Saints' John Kuhn: Dealing with minor calf issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite suffering from a slight calf injury, Kuhn is expected to take the field Week 1 against the Vikings, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Given Kuhn's role with the club, his absence wouldn't leave owners looking for alternatives at the running back position. However, his exclusion from Week 1 would leave the likes of Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson without their lead blocker. He's expected to play, so those concerned should monitor his status further as the contest approaches.

Saints' John Kuhn: Re-signs with Saints
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuhn re-signed on a one-year deal with the Saints on Friday, Herbie Teope of NOLA.com reports.

Kuhn, who will turn 35 at the beginning of the upcoming season, totaled 37 yards and four touchdowns on 18 carries to go along with 16 receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in his first season with the Saints. He doesn't receive a ton of touches, but Kuhn's solidified himself as a goal-line threat and safety blanket for Drew Brees, which gives him a bit of value in deep fantasy formats.

Saints' John Kuhn: Five touchdowns in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kuhn gained 37 yards on 18 carries and 70 yards on 16 receptions in 16 games in 2016. He also scored five touchdowns.

In his first season in New Orleans, Kuhn did what he has done best throughout his NFL career: score touchdowns. Still, the veteran fullback managed only 107 total yards in 16 games, which makes him an unappealing fantasy asset outside of touchdown-only leagues. Kuhn will be 35 years old when the 2017 season kicks off, and as an unrestricted free agent this offseason, his NFL future remains uncertain.
