Saints' Demario Davis: Two sacks in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis had 11 tackles (nine solo) and two sacks in Sunday's win against the Giants.

Davis' career high is five sacks, achieved last season with the Jets, so Sunday's performance was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners. While owners probably should not expect Davis to rack up sacks, the Saints' starting middle linebacker has proven to be an excellent source of tackles, as he has 37 total tackles through four games. The Saints are on bye in Week 5 before hosting the Redskins in Week 6.

Saints' Taysom Hill: Jack-of-all trades contibutor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill gained 28 yards on four carries and caught one pass for negative four yards in Sunday's win against the Giants. He also returned one kickoff for 16 yards and completed one-of-two passes for 10 yards.

The Saints' do-everything quarterback/special teams specialist was again all over the field in New York. On Sunday, Hill had both his first career reception (on a screen pass) and first career completion, as he completed a pass to cornerback Justin Hardee on a fake punt. While Hill is still the third-string quarterback -- Teddy Bridgewater remains Drew Brees' primary backup -- the former BYU Cougar played 12 offensive snaps against the Giants and remains a quarterback option capable of meaningful contributions for fantasy owners in two-quarterback leagues in need of a starter in a bye-week pinch.

Saints' Josh Hill: Posts 63 yards in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hill caught all three of his targets for 63 yards in Sunday's win against the Giants.

Hill had exactly one catch in each of the first three games of the season, so it's probably best to chalk up his big game as an outlier. While the sixth-year pro has some decent skills as a receiver, he is primarily deployed as a blocker in the Saints offense and can still be largely ignored in more fantasy leagues.

Saints' Ben Watson: One catch in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson caught one pass on three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's win against the Giants.

Watson again split snaps fairly evenly with Josh Hill -- 37 snaps for Watson compared to 43 snaps for Hill -- though it was Hill who had the bigger statistical output, hauling in all three of his targets for 63 yards. Nevertheless, Hill is primarily used as a blocker in the Saints offense, so Watson should likely remain the preferred tight-end receiving option. The veteran remains a back-end starting option in many fantasy leagues.

Saints' Cameron Meredith: Three catches in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Meredith caught three passes on four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's win against the Giants.

Meredith played on 22 of the Saints' 70 offensive snaps, as the team continues to ease him into action. Still, Meredith was the only wide receiver other than Michael Thomas to register a reception, as both Ted Ginn (38 snaps), Tre'Quan Smith (26 snaps) and Austin Carr (12 snaps) were all held without a catch. With the Saints' passing game primarily revolving around Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara, ancillary options such as Meredith are hard to consistently trust, though the talented Meredith may still have some weekly upside if he is able to carve out a larger role in the offense as the season progresses.
