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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 12:33:00 AM

Ted Ginn caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Panthers' Week 14 win over the Chargers.

It was Ginn's first effort under 40 yards in eight games. He'll bounce back to upside WR4 status in Week 15 against the Redskins. He's the Panthers' No. 1 receiver.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 06:39:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught 5-of-6 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against Seattle.

Ginn got behind the secondary for a 55-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He didn't have any touchdowns until Week 11, but has now scored in his last three games. Ginn is on a hot streak with at least 40 yards in seven straight games. He's a boom-or-bust WR4 for Week 14.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 12:27:00 AM

Ted Ginn caught 4-of-10 targets for 115 yards and one touchdown in the Panthers' Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Ginn was targeted relentlessly on deep balls, and he and Cam Newton finally hooked up on one in the second half for an 88-yard touchdown. Ginn absolutely torched T.J. Carrie on the play. His 10 targets led the team. Ginn has now scored long touchdowns in back-to-back games, and he is averaging just over seven targets in his last six games. He has developed into a fairly reliable WR4 with upside, but he faces a tough trip to Seattle next week.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 08:10:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught 3-of-4 targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 11 win over the Saints.

Ginn added a 13-yard rush, an end-around where he was brought down at the one-yard line. Ginn's touchdown was a thing of beauty, as he corralled a perfect strike from Cam Newton against tight coverage as he slid in the back of the end zone. Considering all the passes that Ginn has dropped in his career, it was remarkable that he caught this one. Ginn is catching 4-5 weekly passes and making a few big plays, but it isn't translating to WR4 value the way it sometimes did in 2015.
Fri, Nov 18, 2016 12:18:00 AM

Ted Ginn caught 5-of-8 targets for 44 yards in the Panthers' Week 10 loss to the Chiefs.

Ginn did most of his damage on deep comeback routes on the sidelines, while Kelvin Benjamin worked the middle with slant patterns. Ginn has caught five balls in four-straight games but hasn't scored in any of those. He might be worth a WR4 dart throw Week 11 against the Saints in Carolina.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 05:13:00 PM

Ted Ginn caught 5-of-7 targets for 40 yards in the Panthers' Week 9 win over the Rams.

The 5/40 effort was Ginn's third straight. It's a surprising floor, but Ginn hasn't hit his ceiling in 2016. The veteran deep threat remains little more than a dart throw WR5.
