Travaris Cadet had seven touches for 60 yards in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.

Cadet was the preferred passing-down back over Pierre Thomas this week. He had only one carry, but secured all six of his targets for 59 yards. Cadet lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter. He's just a deep stash in re-draft leagues.

Pierre Thomas was held to two carries for eight yards in Week 4 against Dallas.

He added two catches for 15 yards. The Saints used Travaris Cadet as their primary passing down back, with Thomas getting just four touches. He's showed signs of decline in his age-29 season and is on track for just 776 total yards. Thomas will be just a low-end FLEX play in Week 5 against the Bucs.
Sep 29 - 1:07 AM

Kenny Stills had two catches for 62 yards in Week 4 against the Cowboys.

Stills was targeted three times, and continues to be used only as a situational deep threat. He was able to get open on a 46-yard catch in the third quarter. Stills is nothing more than a WR5/6 in fantasy leagues.
Sep 29 - 1:01 AM

Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 31 yards in Sunday night's Week 4 loss to the Cowboys.

It was a step back after Cooks had eight catches for 72 yards last week. He was targeted just six times, and didn't get any red-zone looks. Through four games, Cooks is on pace for 92 catches, 796 yards, and four touchdowns.
Sep 29 - 12:55 AM

Marques Colston had five catches for 50 yards in Sunday night's loss to Dallas.

Colston was targeted 10 times, behind only Jimmy Graham. He had two drops and struggled to get separation throughout the game. Colston is currently on track for a 48/740/4 line. He'll be on the WR2 radar in Week 5 against the Bucs.
Sep 29 - 12:50 AM

Jimmy Graham caught eight passes for 86 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 4 loss to the Cowboys.

Graham had one catch in the first half before coming on late in the fourth quarter. His touchdown was a 13-yard pass from Drew Brees. Graham had a team-high 11 targets, but lost a red-zone look to Josh Hill. He's on pace for a 128/1,704/12 line through four games. Graham will remain a must-start in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 12:33 AM

Khiry Robinson rushed eight times for 87 yards in Sunday night's Week 4 loss to the Cowboys.

He added two catches for 18 yards. Robinson had just seven carries for 25 yards prior to breaking off a 62-yard run in the fourth quarter. He doesn't play on passing downs, but managed to put together a solid game with the Saints playing from behind the entire second half. Robinson is only in line for one more start with Mark Ingram set to return after the Saints' Week 6 bye. He's a sell-high candidate.
Sep 29 - 12:12 AM

Drew Brees completed 32-of-44 passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.

The Cowboys shut down Brees in the first half, with both of his touchdown passes not coming until the fourth quarter. His interception was a tipped pass to Cowboys LB Justin Durant. Brees spread the ball to nine different receivers, and hit Jimmy Graham and Josh Hill for his two scores. He's on pace for 4,812 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions through four games. Brees will be a top-three option against the Bucs in Week 5.
Sep 28 - 11:47 PM

CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms Mark Ingram (hand) remains on pace to return following the Week 6 bye.

Ingram was running like one of the best backs in the league at the time of his injury. He'll immediately resume first-string power duties upon his return, sending Khiry Robinson into a bench role. Owners should be trying to stash Ingram if possible.
Sep 28 - 9:40 PM

Saints LT Terron Armstead suffered a concussion in Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Cowboys.

Armstead was forced from the game after getting shaken up on the Saints' first series. He'll now need to go through the league's concussion protocol before returning to practice.
Sep 28 - 9:03 PM

Saints WR Joe Morgan is inactive for Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Cowboys.

Morgan is a healthy scratch for the third straight week. The rest of the Saints inactives are RB Mark Ingram, CB Patrick Robinson, S Marcus Ball, FB Erik Lorig, ILB David Hawthorne, and DT John Jenkins.
Sep 28 - 7:05 PM

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett still expects Khiry Robinson to be the Saints goal-line back Sunday.

Pierre Thomas scored on a 1-yard run last week but that was because the Saints went hurry-up with their nickel offense still on the field. In a standard situation in which the Saints huddle up, Robinson would be the one coming in to hammer home a goal-line chance. Although last week's production (69 total yards) was disappointing, the matchup against Dallas is even better this week. Owners shouldn't be shying away at all.
Sep 26 - 11:12 PM

Saints C Jonathan Goodwin has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

The veteran suffered the injury in Sunday's win. It had the looks of a multi-week issue when Goodwin went down. The Saints will now roll with second-year UDFA Tim Lelito in the middle. Lelito played 176 snaps as a rookie, grading out negatively in Pro Football Focus' ratings. He showed well against the Vikings, however. It might not end up being a huge downgrade for Drew Brees.
Sep 22 - 2:03 PM

Saints TE Ben Watson left Sunday's Week 3 win over the Vikings with an undisclosed injury.

It's a chance for second-year man Josh Hill to step in as the No. 2 tight end. Hill had a career-high 48 yards and scored his second career touchdown Sunday.
Sep 22 - 8:31 AM

Josh Hill caught 2-of-2 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 3 win over the Vikings.

The targets were Hill's second and third of the season, while the score was the second of his career. With the Vikings fixated on Jimmy Graham, Hill got left all alone on his 34-yard score in the first quarter. He'll be lucky to find pay dirt again this season.
