Top Saints News

  • Saints' Payton Turner: Records first sack of career

    Turner logged five tackles (four solo) and one sack during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    Turner didn't log a snap during the Saints' season opener, but he saw 29 defensive snaps in Week 2 with Marcus Davenport (shoulder) sidelined. The rookie first-round pick was one of the lone bright spots for the Saints' defense Sunday as he recorded his first career sack. He will likely garner similar playing time for the remainder of Davenport's IR stint.

  • Saints' Demario Davis: Leads team with 12 tackles

    Davis totaled 12 tackles (eight solo), one tackle for loss and one pass deflection during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    After playing just 42 defensive snaps and registering four tackles against the Packers in the season opener, Davis responded with a 12-tackle performance against the Panthers. The 32-year-old has registered at least 110 tackles in four straight seasons and likely will be a top IDP option for the remainder of the season.

  • Saints' Aldrick Rosas: No field-goal attempts

    Rosas converted one of one PAT during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    Getting another opportunity with the Saints while Wil Lutz (abdomen) remains on IR, Rosas only needed to handle a pair of kickoffs and an extra-point try thanks to New Orleans' offensive implosion. Not only was the end zone hard to reach, but getting within field-goal range was as well with both Jameis Winston and Alvin Kamara struggling to generate much of anything. Unfortunately, a Week 3 trip to New England is a difficult spot for a rebound, especially after Bill Belichick's defense forced four interceptions against the Jets in Week 2.

  • Saints' Ty Montgomery: Minimal offensive involvement

    Montgomery caught his only target for three yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    Montgomery was in the starting lineup next to Chris Hogan, but he again saw less than 15 offensive snaps while Deonte Harris was the only receiver to be used in the run game. With his offensive role unlikely to grow anytime soon, Montgomery remains far off the fantasy radar.

  • Saints' Chris Hogan: Three targets against Saints

    Hogan secured one of three targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

    Hogan drew the start in this one opposite Ty Montgomery, but the 30-year-old ultimately finished fourth in offensive snaps among Saints receivers behind Marquez Callaway, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Deonte Harris, plus tight ends Adam Trautman and Juwan Johnson. While Hogan should remain in the rotation at receiver all season, it seems unlikely that he'll manage fantasy relevance at any point, especially once Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) and Michael Thomas (ankle) return to the fold.

  • Saints' Lil'Jordan Humphrey: Gets involved in passing game

    Humphrey caught one of two targets for 27 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Panthers.

    Humphrey wasn't in the starting lineup this time around, but he jumped from 29 percent of the offensive snaps Week 1 to 55 percent Sunday, despite the Saints needing a pass-heavy approach most of the game. While this jump in playing time resulted in a couple of targets for him after he didn't see any in the season opener, the 6-foot-4 receiver likely will continue to see his biggest offensive contributions come as a blocker.

  • Saints' Deonte Harris: Sees two more targets

    Harris caught one of two targets for nine yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

    Harris again saw a couple of targets while playing on a little less than half of the offensive snaps, but this time he was unable to get loose for a long gain. The 5-foot-6 receiver likely will remain a touchdown-dependent fantasy option Week 3 when New Orleans travels to New England.

  • Saints' Taysom Hill: Totals 16 rushing yards

    Hill rushed twice for 16 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

    Jameis Winston and the Saints offense came crashing back to Earth after an explosive Week 1 blowout of Green Bay. However, Hill seemed to provide a small spark when given a couple of chances. It will be interesting to see if he becomes more involved going forward should Winston's struggles persist.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Gets another handful of targets

    Johnson caught one of three targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

    After seeing 19 percent of the offensive snaps Week 1, Johnson jumped to 41 percent Sunday while Adam Trautman fell from 82 to 52. While it's possible that game script played a large role in those disparities considering the Saints attempted nearly half as many rushing attempts compared to the season opener, Johnson saw three looks in both games, and it looks like he could have some sort of role in the passing game regardless of the situation. Next up is a Week 3 trip to New England.

  • Saints' Adam Trautman: No targets in passing game

    Trautman was not targeted during Sunday's 26-7 loss to Carolina.

    On a day when Jameis Winston had trouble moving the ball, Trautman was not used as a safety valve over the middle of the field. Instead, Alvin Kamara and Marquez Callaway saw almost half of Winston's 21 pass attempts while Juwan Johnson was the only Saints tight end to have a pass sent his way. While Trautman at least paced his position group with 52 percent of the offensive snaps, Johnson was close behind at 41 percent and ultimately saw a target every six snaps. Unless Trautman eventually becomes a larger part of the passing game, he'll be hard to trust in any fantasy format.
