Nick Toon caught four passes for 43 yards in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Bears.

He reeled in all four of his targets for the second consecutive week. Toon has been chipping into Marques Colston's snaps. The Saints like to rotate their receivers, and Toon has taken over as the No. 3. It's still not enough to make him an option for 2014. But Toon could make Colston expendable in the offseason.
Dec 16 - 12:30 AM

Nick Toon caught 4-of-4 targets for 45 yards in New Orleans' Week 14 loss to the Panthers.

Toon continues to play a much-bigger role in the absence of Brandin Cooks (wrist, injured reserve), but hasn't shown enough to put himself on the WR4/5 radar. He can continue to be ignored in re-draft leagues.
Dec 7 - 6:30 PM

Nick Toon caught two passes for 17 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' Week 13 win over the Steelers.

Toon reeled in both of his targets as the seldom-used No. 4 receiver. There's no re-draft value here, though he's passed Robert Meachem on the depth chart.
Nov 30 - 5:39 PM

Saints WR Nick Toon played 44-of-74 snaps in Monday's loss to the Ravens, catching 3-of-5 targets for 42 yards.

Each of the catches, yards and targets were the most of Toon's thus far dismal three-year career. He had previously never caught more than one pass in a game. The New Orleans Times-Picayune expects Toon to maintain a role for however long Robert Meachem (ankle) is sidelined. It's nice to see Toon finally getting some regular-season run, but he's highly unlikely to come into 2014 fantasy value.
Nov 25 - 6:36 PM

Saints declared WR Nick Toon, RB Mark Ingram, LB David Hawthorne, S Marcus Ball, FB Erik Lorig, DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste and DL John Jenkins inactive for Week 3 against the Vikings.

A 2012 fourth-rounder, Toon has yet to suit up this season. He's worth keeping around in Dynasty leagues, but only as an end-of-roster type. Khiry Robinson will carry the "big back" mail in Ingram's absence, and should get at least 1-2 goal-line chances.

Saints WR Nick Toon failed to secure either of his targets in Saturday night's preseason clash with the Colts.

He has four catches for 17 yards this preseason. Toon is the direct backup to Marques Colston -- something to file away for forward thinkers -- but he has no re-draft value. The 25-year-old's Dynasty appeal is minimal at best.
Aug 23 - 10:56 PM

The Times-Picayune has named Nick Toon one of the most impressive players at Saints camp so far.

Toon has "consistently come up with catches on nearly every pass pattern." It sounds like rapid improvement from last season, when he played on just 205 snaps and was active for just eight games, looking overmatched when asked to fill in for Lance Moore.
Jul 31 - 11:10 AM

The Times-Picayune's Katherine Terrell believes WR Nick Toon has the "edge" in the battle for the Saints' fourth receiver job.

Terrell is the second Saints reporter to single out Toon in the last month. ESPN's Mike Triplett recently said Toon could see "significant" snaps this season. Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and rookie Brandin Cooks are locked in as the top-three receivers. Toon appears to be in the driver's seat for the No. 4. He's trying to hold off Joe Morgan and Robert Meachem, among others.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett believes WR Nick Toon has a chance at "significant" playing time this season.

Triplett admits Toon could be cut if he struggles in the preseason, but sees a "much better chance" he cracks the Saints' top-four wide receivers. Toon only saw 12 targets in 205 snaps last season, and was primarily used as a blocker. He can be safely ignored in fantasy leagues

ESPN's Mike Triplett believes the Saints are still high on Nick Toon’s potential.

Toon looked overmatched when filling in for Lance Moore last year and was active for just eight games. He should open training camp as the No. 4 wideout depending on what the Saints do in the draft. If Toon can put together a strong preseason, Joe Morgan and Robert Meachem will be competing for one roster spot.

Saints declared WR Nick Toon, TE Josh Hill, QB Ryan Griffin, S Rafael Bush, DB Trevin Wade, LB Keyunta Dawson, and DL Tyrunn Walker inactive for Week 15 against the Rams.

The Saints are relatively healthy. Hill, the No. 3 tight end, has a hamstring injury. Special teams ace Bush is battling an ankle issue.

Saints declared WR Nick Toon, FS Rafael Bush, QB Ryan Griffin, CB Trevin Wade, LB Keyunta Dawson, OT Terron Armstead, and DE Glenn Foster inactive for Week 14 against the Panthers.

The Saints don't have any major injuries heading into Week 14. Toon has been a healthy inactive the last two games. Bush remains week to week with an ankle injury.

Nick Toon had no catches on four targets in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Jets.

Subbing for an inactive Marques Colston (knee), Toon led all Saints wideouts with 55 snaps and 43 routes run. He also led them with ineffective play. Toon had a brutal drop on a perfectly thrown deep ball early on and then had a pass clang off his hands for an interception later. From there, Drew Brees appeared hesitant to throw the second-year man the ball.

Nick Toon caught his first career pass for 18 yards in the Saints' Week 4 win over the Dolphins on Monday night.

The 2012 fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin was appearing in just his second game. Toon was seeing snaps because Lance Moore (wrist) was inactive.
