Saints' Alvin Kamara: Finds end zone in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara rushed for 37 yards and a touchdown on two carries during Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers. He also caught three of five targets for an additional five yards.

Kamara made the most of his limited opportunities in this one, churning out a 12-yard gain before rumbling for his first career touchdown on a 25-yard carry in the fourth quarter. He was also targeted more than all other Saints backs combined, though he didn't make much of an impact as a receiver. Kamara still has a ways to go before be can be considered a reliable fantasy play, but he has certainly flashed his potential at times in the early stages.

Saints' Ted Ginn: Catches long touchdown versus Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ginn caught two of his three targets for 44 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers. He also gained 15 yards on his lone carry of the 34-13 win.

Ginn made his money with one big play in this one, hauling in a 40-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the second half. The veteran wasn't heavily targeted, but his role in the offense is likely to revolve around big gains this season, rather than sheer volume. It was good to see Ginn come through with a splash play, but he remains a boom-or-bust fantasy option next week against the Dolphins.

Saints' Mark Ingram: Grinds out yardage in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram gained 56 yards on 14 carries and caught two of his four targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

Ingram labored for an average of four yards per carry against a stout Carolina front, but he wound up with a respectable 86 yards from scrimmage thanks to an effective outing as a receiver. He received as many carries in this one as he did in the previous two weeks combined, though Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara combined to tote the ball 11 times. Ingram's role in the offense seems quite dependent on game flow, but he is clearly the lead back at the moment and should play a big part next week against the Dolphins.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Finds end zone in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas caught seven of his eight targets for 87 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

Thomas, who was the only receiver on the team with more than three targets, also led the way in receiving yardage be a hefty margin. He also scored his first touchdown of the season on a contested grab from five yards out at the end of the first quarter. Thomas appears to be adapting quickly to life as Drew Brees' top target and will look to continue his recent success next week against the Dolphins.

Saints' Drew Brees: Throws three touchdowns in win over Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 22 of 29 passes for 220 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 34-13 win over the Panthers.

Brees efficiently completed 76 percent of his passes while hooking up with nine different receivers. He connected with Michael Thomas, Ted Ginn and Brandon Coleman for scores, deferring to the run game after building a comfortable lead. Brees has been outstanding through three weeks in 2017, throwing six touchdowns compared to no interceptions while averaging 289 yards per game. He will look to keep it up next week against a Dolphins team that was just beaten handily by the Jets.
