Saints' Sheldon Rankins: First sack of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rankins recorded five tackles (two solo) and a sack across 50 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Rankins played in 81 percent of the Saints defensive snaps, good for second-highest on the defensive line only behind Cameron Jordan. A run-stuffer, Rankins does not reach the quarterback often, as he recorded a season-total of two sacks last season.

Saints' Manti Te'o: Four tackles in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Te'o made four tackles (one solo) in Sunday's win against the Browns. He played 35 of the Saints' 62 defensive snaps.

Te'o continues to split time with A.J. Klein (48 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (23 snaps), though Klein appears to have surged to the top of linebacker committee in Week 2 after registering nine tackles. Still, barring injury, it remains difficult to predict how Klein, Te'o and Anzalone will be deployed on a weekly basis.

Saints' A.J. Klein: Leads linebacker committee in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Klein had nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's win against the Browns.

A week after playing just 38 percent of the team's defensive snaps, Klein saw 48 of the Saints' 62 defensive snaps (77 percent) in Week 2 -- significantly more than Klein's main competitors for playing time, Manti Te'o (35 snaps) and Alex Anzalone (23 snaps). Klein's nine tackles also tied for the team lead in this game. For at least one week, Klein appears to have surged to the top of the linebacker committee, but it remains difficult to predict how Klein, Te'o and Anzalone will be deployed on a weekly basis.

Saints' Josh Hill: One catch in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill caught his only target for five yards in Sunday's win against the Browns.

Hill played 39 of the Saints' 66 offensive snaps, sharing the field frequently with starting tight end Ben Watson, who saw 54 snaps. Still, Hill barely saw a look in the passing game and probably should not be owned in most fantasy leagues.

Saints' Wil Lutz: Game-winning kick in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lutz was 2-for-3 on field goals and was successful on his only extra-point attempt in Sunday's win against the Browns.

Lutz missed from 44 yards out in the second quarter, but he converted a 31-yard kick in the first quarter and the game-winning 44-yarder in the final minute of regulation. Although the Saints struggled for most of the game against an improved Browns defense, the team should continue to provide plenty of scoring opportunities, giving Lutz a solid floor in most fantasy leagues.
