Brandin Cooks caught 3-of-3 targets for 38 yards in the Saints' Week 9 win over the Panthers.

It was a disappointing night coming off Cooks' 6/94/1 Week 8, especially since he seemed to be finding the soft spots in Carolina's secondary. Either way, Drew Brees was spreading the ball around, finding eight different receivers. Cooks has weekly blow-up potential, but his season-long upside seems capped by the Saints' spread-the-wealth passing attack. With half his rookie year now in the books, Cooks is on pace for 86/820/4 four as a receiver, and 136 additional yards as a rusher. He's a boom-or-bust WR3.

Greg Olsen caught 3-of-4 targets for 30 yards in Carolina's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

Olsen's missed connection was the result of an inaccurate throw from Cam Newton. Olsen has just four catches for 46 yards over his past two games, but is still on pace for 90/1,078/10 at the season's halfway point. A 10-day rest for Week 10 should do Olsen and the Panthers' offense some good. He remains locked in as a top-five tight end.

Returning from a four-week absence, DeAngelo Williams (knee) started Carolina's Week 9 loss to the Saints, rushing eight times for 20 yards.

Williams added a 30-yard catch on a screen, leaving him at 50 total yards. As feared, he rotated near evenly with Jonathan Stewart, out-touching him just 9-8 while out-gaining him 50-46. Neither player was allowed to gain the upper hand or get into a rhythm. The situation is one of the least appealing running-back quagmires in all of fantasy football. D-Will should be bench fodder more weeks than not down the stretch.

Rotating with DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart rushed eight times for 46 yards in Carolina's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

D-Will got the "start," but out-touched Stewart just 9-8. Stewart out-rushed Williams 46-20, but D-Will finished with 50 total yards thanks to a 30-yard reception. As feared, the duo formed a value-draining committee, with neither back being allowed to get into a rhythm. It's a shame with Stewart coming off one of his better games in recent memory in Week 8. J-Stew will be a high-risk FLEX option going forward.
Oct 30 - 11:52 PM

Kelvin Benjamin caught just 2-of-10 targets for 18 yards in Carolina's Week 9 loss to the Saints.

A lot of the blame for Benjamin's quiet night rests on the inaccurate arm of Cam Newton, but Benjamin straight up dropped a ball in the end zone for the second-consecutive week. He also committed a costly holding penalty that wiped out a third quarter first-down run from Jonathan Stewart. Benjamin flashes jaw-dropping physical talent every Sunday (or Thursday), but has had truly abysmal hands through the first eight games of his NFL career. With half the season in the books, Benjamin is on pace for 80/1,178/10. Great numbers, but they could be better if Benjamin stopped muffing catchable passes.

Jimmy Graham caught 7-of-7 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 9 win over the Panthers.

Both the catches and yards were Graham's most since Week 4. The nice night came despite the fact that Graham appeared to tweak his troublesome shoulder multiple times, though he never checked out of the game. Graham beat blanket coverage from CB Melvin White on his one-yard score, and also dealt with supremely-physical attention from LB Thomas Davis. With half the season now in the books, Graham is on pace for 92/1,036/10 despite playing at less than 100 percent for the better part of a month. The yardage rate should pick up.
Oct 30 - 11:43 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 30 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns in New Orleans' Week 9 win over the Panthers, adding a 10-yard reception.

Ingram got the ball on New Orleans' first two plays from scrimmage and never looked back, becoming the first Saint since Deuce McAllister in 2006 to notch back-to-back 100-yard days on the ground. The 3.3 YPC was mildly disappointing against a Panthers team surrendering a league-worst 5.2 yards per carry, but Ingram was dialed up in a host of predictable running situations. He now has 54 carries for 272 yards and three touchdowns in the past five days. Ingram has a tough Week 10 matchup in the 49ers, but will be a locked-in RB2.
Oct 30 - 11:38 PM

Cam Newton was off his game in Carolina's 28-10, Week 9 loss to the Saints, completing just 10-of-28 passes for 151 yards and an interception, adding seven rushes for 43 yards and a touchdown.

Newton also lost a fumble on a strip sack. The passing performance was one of the worst of Newton's career, as he simply wasn't accurate, either lofting passes too high, or throwing them too hard. "Touch" was not in Newton's vocabulary this evening, though that's often the case. He was also hurt by drops. The only thing saving Newton's night from outright fantasy disaster was his 10-yard rushing score in the third quarter, where he spun out of a sack, got the edge and dove across the goal line. Newton now has 10 days to rest up for what should be a high-scoring affair with the Eagles. It will have been nearly a month since his last positive fantasy performance.
