Ted Ginn hauled in all four of his targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 6 win over the Lions.
Ginn was able to get open on a shallow cross out of a bunch set in the first quarter, easily avoided a tackle attempt from rookie LB Jarrad Davis, and dove into the end zone for a 20-yard score. That was just the start for Ginn, who the Lions could not seem to tackle. He created a couple more big plays in the first half, and he was pushed out at the one in the second quarter. Unfortunately, the Saints sat on the ball after the break, and what could have been a big day ended up being just a good one. It was still Ginn's best with the Saints, and he will look to build on it next week in Green Bay. Oct 15 - 5:23 PM

Ted Ginn caught both of his targets for 25 yards and rushed once for nine yards in the Saints' Week 4 win over the Dolphins in London.

Even with Willie Snead on the sidelines, Ginn has struggled to produce fantasy value early in the season. He is going to score some long touchdowns this year, as he did last week in Carolina, but he cannot be trusted in fantasy lineups, especially with Snead likely back after the bye.
Oct 1 - 1:05 PM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-3 targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 3 win over the Panthers, adding a 15-yard rush.

Ginn ran right by James Bradberry on his 40-yard touchdown in the third quarter, hauling in a perfectly-thrown ball by Drew Brees. Ginn should have a second touchdown in the second quarter, a 50-yarder, but Brees somehow overthrew him. With Willie Snead coming off suspension against the Dolphins in Week 4, Ginn's WR3/4 status will grow more volatile.
Sep 24 - 5:13 PM

Ted Ginn hauled in 3-of-6 targets for 24 yards in the Saints' Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

It was another disappointment from Ginn, who has just 77 yards in two games without Willie Snead. He did have two end-zone targets broken up and was tackled inside the five, and those opportunities should result in fantasy points most of the time. Even so, Ginn will be nothing more than a WR3/FLEX play next week in Carolina.
Sep 17 - 6:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-5 targets for 53 yards in the Saints' Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

His lone big catch was on a corner route for a 27-yard pickup against ageless CB Terence Newman. Ginn also ran the ball once for five yards. This was a tough matchup with a stingy secondary. Ginn played 42-of-62 snaps, so he's on the field a ton. There will be better days ahead in this potent offense.
Sep 11 - 11:27 PM

Ted Ginn hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards and rushed once for 24 yards in the Saints' third preseason game.

It should have been a bigger night for Ginn, but a 48-yard run was cut in half by a penalty while he and Drew Brees were not on the same page on a deep shot. Still, Ginn was heavily involved with the first-team offense, seeing more targets than everyone but Michael Thomas while Brees was in the game. Willie Snead has gotten the ink, but Ginn may be a better bet at his 12th-round ADP.
Aug 26 - 10:14 PM

Ted Ginn is listed as the starter opposite Michael Thomas on the Saints' first unofficial depth chart.

He's listed directly ahead of Willie Snead, who is on the second team along with Brandon Coleman. Ginn was praised by Drew Brees after spring practices and has picked up right where he left off at camp. Meanwhile, Snead has been dinged up and missing practice time, though he was back out there Monday. Ultimately, all three of Thomas, Ginn, and Snead are expected to play heavy snaps in the Saints' big-play offense that loves to throw the ball around. Snead remains a strong WR3, and Ginn is worth a flier in the late rounds as a home run-hitter over the top.
Aug 7 - 8:27 PM

Drew Brees praised Ted Ginn's OTAs performance.

"I could not be more impressed with him," Brees said. "He certainly doesn't look like he's lost a step. He can fly." Ginn's film agrees with Brees' assessment, as the 32-year-old remained one of the league's fastest players last season, effortlessly blowing by defensive backs. Ginn will be a pure role-playing deep threat in New Orleans, but will be a real factor for the Saints. In a high-octane offense missing nearly 150 targets from 2016, Ginn should offer inconsistent WR3/flex appeal this year.
Jun 1 - 1:57 PM

Saints coach Sean Payton said he has "an exact vision" of how to use newly-signed WR Ted Ginn.

"I seem him playing at flanker, I see him being a guy that can take the top off the coverage. I like what this guy does," Payton said. "He’s still, when he’s playing in each game, the fastest player on the field." Payton added Ginn will "do some of the same things" as departed WR Brandin Cooks, although it is highly unlikely he is as involved in the offense. Despite making the switch from Carolina to New Orleans, Ginn's boom-or-bust WR4 fantasy value remains intact.

Ted Ginn said he signed with New Orleans "because Drew Brees is the type of guy that can extend your career."

Ginn added he does not need to be the "superstar," but he is hoping to be a "factor" for the most prolific passing game in the league. With Brandin Cooks gone to New England, Ginn will get his chance to contribute as the deep-threat complement to Michael Thomas and Willie Snead. Ginn should retain boom-or-bust WR4 value in New Orleans.

Mar 14 - 11:01 AM

Saints agreed to terms with WR Ted Ginn, formerly of the Panthers, on a three-year, $11-million contract.

One of the league's most dangerous deep threats, Ginn would be a readymade replacement for Brandin Cooks on streak routes if Cooks is sent packing. Ginn, of course, has a far more limited skill-set than Cooks, but would be a nice replacement as more of a role player. The battle for targets would no longer be so fierce between New Orleans' top three receivers. Ginn is coming off back-to-back 730-yard campaigns in Carolina. He will catch some bombs from Drew Brees.
Mar 9 - 11:50 AM

The Denver Post suggests the Broncos could make a run at free agent Ted Ginn.

The Broncos want an upgrade on returns, and could also use Ginn as a deep threat to play alongside Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. From a fantasy standpoint, staying in Carolina would still be Ginn's best option. Turning 32 in April, this may be Ginn's final shot at a lucrative contract. Ginn is coming off a 54-752-4 receiving season and remains one of the NFL's fastest players.

Jan 30 - 4:48 PM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-7 passes for 69 yards in Week 17 against the Bucs.

Ginn did not have the highs of his 2015 season this year, but he was a surprisingly consistent fantasy option as the de facto No. 1 receiver down the stretch. He only found the end zone four times after visiting the painted area 10 times last year, but he caught 10 more passes and recorded 51 more total yards. Even turning 32 in April, Ginn should see interest on the free agent market if the Panthers let him get there.
Jan 1 - 5:11 PM

Ted Ginn caught 3-of-9 targets for 29 yards in the Panthers' Week 16 loss to the Falcons.

Ginn’s targets did not dry up in this game, but he was held in check with Cam Newton struggling to locate the ball. His long gain went for just 17 yards, and Newton flat out did not see him on what should have been a long touchdown late in the game. Ginn will hope to find better luck next week in Tampa Bay. As long as he keeps seeing around eight targets a game, he should hit more weeks than not.

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-8 targets for 64 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' Week 15 win over the Redskins.

His touchdown was a 30-yard strike over the top of the defense. Josh Norman was in coverage but passed Ginn off to SS Donte Whitner in a cover-three zone, and Whitner was completely lost on the play. Ginn could have easily had another 65-yard touchdown after CB Bashaud Breeland fell down at the line of scrimmage, but Cam Newton under-threw the ball a bit and Ginn alligator-armed it when he saw the safety coming for the hit. It fell incomplete. Ginn has emerged as Newton's favorite receiver of late with Kelvin Benjamin falling off the face of the planet. Ginn will be a boom-bust WR3 next week against the Falcons in a plus matchup.
