Saints' Wil Lutz: Remains perfect
Lutz connected on all three of his field goal attempts and all three of his extra point attempts in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Lutz continued his accurate ways, nailing all six of his kicks in the loss. Through three weeks, he's perfect on six field goal tries and all 10 extra point attempts. A matchup with Detroit in Week 4 should offer plenty of chances for Lutz to keep his hot streak going.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Demario Davis: Seven tackles in loss
Davis finished with seven tackles (six solo), one sack and a tackle for a loss in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
He finished behind only Malcolm Jenkins in tackles in this one and got to Aaron Rodgers for his second sack of the season, regularly making plays as Green Bay scored 37 points in the contest. Through three weeks, Davis has 21 tackles and is on pace for his fourth consecutive 100-tackle season.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Malcolm Jenkins: Leads team in tackles
Jenkins recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and a tackle for a loss in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Jenkins paced the Saints in tackles Sunday, staying busy against a powerful Green Bay defense. He's up to 22 tackles on the season and is on pace to break the career-high 109 he set in that category in 2015 while with the Eagles.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Adam Trautman: Two receptions in loss
Trautman caught both of his targets for 17 yards in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Trautman recorded the first multi-catch game of his career. Jared Cook left this one early, as he was seen limping to the locker room in the second half. If he's limited or forced to miss time, Trautman should see his role increase moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Tre'Quan Smith: Six targets in loss
Smith brought in four of six targets for 42 yards in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
For the second week in a row, Smith finished second in targets behind only Alvin Kamara, though it was Kamara and Emmanuel Sanders who were on the receiving end of Drew Brees' three touchdowns. Smith's deep-threat abilities have yet to make an appearance in 2020, as Drew Brees has struggled to get the ball downfield, and despite the increase in targets, is value is capped by the Saints' highly-conservative pass attack....

Saints' Taysom Hill: Three touches in loss
Hill carried twice for six yards and brought in his only target for one yard in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
He also lost a fumble. Hill's 2019 career year seems a distant memory, as he's now totaled just 10 touches through the first three weeks of the season. With Alvin Kamara and Drew Brees both in full health this season, Hill's rolls as a receiver and quarterback have shrunk considerably. He can't be comfortably utilized in most fantasy formats....

Saints' Latavius Murray: Posts 65 yards in loss
Murray carried 12 times for 58 yards and caught his only target for seven yards in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
As expected, Murray played clearly behind Alvin Kamara, though Murray has now logged at least 13 touches in two of the first three weeks of the season. He hasn't found his way to the end zone yet, but if he can continue to see double-digit touches, he Murray can be used as a deep-league flex.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Drew Brees: Strong showing in Week 3 loss
Brees completed 29 of 36 pass attempts for 288 yards and three touchdowns in the Saints' 37-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
Brees turned in his best performance of the season, as the Saints went back and forth with the Packers in a thrilling Sunday night showdown. Despite the improved showing, Brees continued to rely on the short pass game, peppering Alvin Kamara with 14 targets on the evening and routinely checking the ball down. He'll get a good draw in Week 4 against the Lions, where he'll look to get the Saints back in the win column after two straight losses.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Emmanuel Sanders: Has best game with new club
Sanders caught four of five targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-30 loss to Green Bay.
Earlier in the week head coach Sean Payton said that Sanders' touches would increase going forward; he held true to his word and the wideout posted his best performance since joining New Orleans. The veteran still has still only garnered eight targets over the two games sans Michael Thomas (ankle), as running back Alvin Kamara (23 targets in that span) appears to have absorbed most of the injured star wideout's targets. Drew Brees will have to start taking more shots down the field in order to get his wideouts more involved (Brees currently owns a league-worst 4.61 average air yards per attempt). Thomas is hoping to return to the field against the Lions in Week 4, a development that would not do any favors for Sanders' target share.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Alvin Kamara: Monster receiving performance
Kamara rushed just six times for 58 yards, but corralled 13 receptions (14 targets) for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-30 loss to the Packers.
Kamara did his best Michael Thomas (ankle) impression with his teammate forced to sit this one out due to injury. The dynamic back did most of his damage after the catch, including a 52-yard touchdown scamper in which he broke four tackles after receiving the ball near the line of scrimmage. After a down year slowed by injury in 2019, Kamara is looking more like the top-five fantasy player we saw in his first two seasons in the NFL. The 25-year-old became just the second player in NFL history to rush for three touchdowns and catch three touchdown passes through his team's first three games (per ESPN). There is a chance that Thomas returns for Week 4's matchup against the Lions, but if he is forced to sit out, Kamara should be in line to post WR1 numbers again after averaging 11.5 receptions and 117 receiving yards in the two games sans Thomas....

Saints' Jared Cook: Heads to locker room with limp
Cook came up noticeably limping after a catch in the second half of Sunday's game against the Packers and was taken to the locker room, Amie Just of NOLA.com reports.
It looked like a groin injury for Cook. His return should be considered questionable. Cook had two catches for 21 yards at the time of his exit.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Andrus Peat: Ruled out with ankle injury
Peat (ankle) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Packers, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.
Coach Sean Payton should have an update on the starting guard's status after the game, but Peat's done for the night. Given the nature of Peat's injury, he could be looking at a multi-week absence, though his status beyond Sunday is uncertain at this point.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Andrus Peat: Carted off after being rolled up on
Peat (leg) was carted off for X-rays late in the first half of Sunday's game against the Packers, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Advocate reports.
Nick Easton takes over for Peat, who had his leg rolled up on by running back Alvin Kamara while blocking upfield. Peat's return should be considered questionable at this time.... See More ... See Less
Saints' David Onyemata: Inactive Sunday night
Onyemata (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Onyemata was a late addition to New Orleans' injury report, but his calf issue is serious enough that he'll need to miss at least a week. With Marcus Davenport (elbow) also inactive, the Saints' defensive front could find it difficult to contain Green Bay's potent ground game.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Trey Hendrickson: Ready to rock Sunday
Hendrickson (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Hendrickson was initially listed as questionable, but he's managed to shake his groin injury in time to go Sunday. With Marcus Davenport (elbow) inactive again, Hendrickson looks primed to draw another start at defensive end.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Marcus Davenport: Can't face Packers
Davenport (elbow) is inactive for Sunday's game against Green Bay, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Davenport was initially listed as questionable for Sunday, but he'll ultimately be forced to miss a third straight contest due to his elbow injury. Trey Hendrickson again stands to fill in for Davenport at defensive end.... See More ... See Less
