Saints' Willie Snead: Posts 23-yard reception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snead hauled in one of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

The 25-year-old speedster saw some extra opportunities with Ted Ginn (ribs) sidelined for the contest, but Snead has still to log more than two catches in any game this season. With Michael Thomas, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara commanding such a large share of the offense, Snead has become an afterthought in this much more balanced 2017 version of the Saints' offense. Snead still boasts big-play upside due to his game-breaking speed, but his role is simply too small to warrant serious fantasy consideration.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Leads team in receiving
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas brought in nine of 11 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

Thomas' reception, receiving yardage and target totals were all season highs, and he scored a touchdown for the third straight contest. The second-year wideout has posted 19 catches overall in the last pair of games, and factoring in Sunday's production, he's now only the second player in NFL history with at least 90 catches in his first two seasons. Thomas will look to continue building on his strong season versus the Falcons in Week 16.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Finds the end zone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kamara ran for 44 yards on 12 carries and added 45 yards and a touchdown on six catches during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

Kamara gave the Saints back the lead in the second quarter when he circled out of the backfield and took a quick Drew Brees pass into the end zone for a 10-yard score. It was Kamara's seventh game with a touchdown in his last eight contests. The only game in which he has been held scoreless since Oct. 29 was Week 14's injury-shortened outing against Atlanta. He'll get another shot against Atlanta next week and seems likely to have an opportunity to keep his streak going. The Saints were attacking Atlanta with three passes to Kamara on its opening drive before the rookie was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Look for the Saints to revisit that matchup in Week 16.

Saints' Mark Ingram: Rushes for two touchdowns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ingram ran for 74 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and added 77 yards on five catches during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

Ingram could have ended Sunday's contest with a crisp 101 total yards and a touchdown, but he sliced through the Jets defense in the closing moments for an exclamation point -- a 50-yard touchdown run. It was his second play of the day that went for at least 50 yards. The Saints have thrived on the versatility that both Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara have brought to the running and passing games. If anything, Kamara's emergence has helped keep Ingram fresh. The veteran back has topped at least 90 total yards in five of his last six games as compared to thrice in his first eight games of the year.

Saints' Drew Brees: Bounces back with two scores
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brees completed 26 of 36 passes for 285 yards, two touchdowns and an interception during Sunday's 31-19 win over the Jets.

Brees helped New Orleans reclaim the lead in the second quarter when he hit rookie phenom Alvin Kamara circling out of the backfield for a 10-yard score. He followed up with a four-yard touchdown pass to Michael Thomas in the fourth quarter after two earlier potential touchdown passes were overturned. Brees is captaining a ship that already has already provided the Saints with the team's most wins since 2013, but, unlike in years past, the team isn't living or dying on the strength of Brees' right arm. Kamara and Mark Ingram have run the show this season and combined for three total touchdowns on Sunday. Brees has been efficient, but also has just three 300-yard games this season and one contest with more than two touchdown passes. That's not the Brees we're used to. For comparison, over the previous five seasons, Brees has averaged 9.8 games per season with 300 or more yards and seven games per season with three or more touchdown throws.
