Saints' Sterling Moore: Returns to Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints decided to re-sign Moore on Monday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.

Moore was cut by the team toward the end of October. He has been brought back to help bolster the team's secondary depth, as well as provide experience. The 27-year-old only suited up for the first two weeks of the season, and recorded three solo tackles during that time.

Saints' Alex Okafor: Out for season with torn Achilles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor was diagnosed with a torn Achilles after being evaluated Monday and will miss the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

As the Saints had feared when Okafor was carted off the field in Sunday's 38-31 win over the Redskins, the starting defensive end sustained a significant injury and will likely be headed to injured reserve. Okafor, who signed a one-year, $2 million contract in March, has been an unsung hero of the Saints' defensive turnaround this season, recording 43 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 10 games. With surgery awaiting him and potentially keeping him sidelined to begin the 2018 campaign, Okafor may have a cool market as he heads into free agency this winter. The Saints, meanwhile, are expected to rely on a rotation of Hau'oli Kikaha and Trey Hendrickson to fill the defensive end spot opposite top pass rusher Cameron Jordan.

Saints' Wil Lutz: Boots game-winner in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lutz made four field goals and two extra points in Sunday's 34-31 comeback win against the Redskins, including converting the game-winning 28-yard field goal in overtime.

Lutz had been scuffling some of late -- missing a kick in three of his last four games -- but he was perfect in a busy Week 11. The big-legged kicker has notched double-digit points in nearly half the games this year and continues to have a stable floor, with the Saints averaging over 30 points per game.

Saints' Craig Robertson: Quiet in Week 11 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robertson had three tackles (one solo) in Sunday's 34-31 win against the Redskins.

Robertson again played every defensive snap for New Orleans, but his production lagged. In fact, the starting outside linebacker has notched just seven total tackles in his last two games combined. Robertson recorded a career-high 115 tackles last year and has some big performances this season (11 tackles in Week 6 against the Lions), so his recent dip in production is difficult to explain. Fantasy owners should probably just hold tight and hope for a rebound performance in Week 12 against the Rams.

Saints' Cameron Jordan: Records eighth sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jordan had four tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's 34-31 win against the Redskins.

Jordan upped his sack total to eight on the season, to go with 42 tackles. His ability to rack up sacks while maintaining a solid tackle floor makes Jordan one of the best IDP options along the defensive line. At this stage of the season, the dominant defensive end's play speaks for itself, and fantasy owners should continue to deploy Jordan with confidence.
