Saints re-signed CB Sterling Moore.

Moore has been out of the league since the Saints released him last month. His return isn't a good sign for Marshon Lattimore's (ankle) status.
Nov 20 - 5:31 PM

Saints DE Alex Okafor suffered a torn Achilles' Week 11 against the Redskins.

Signed to a one-year deal in March, Okafor had been a revelation for the Saints, recording 4.5 sacks and getting consistent pressure since New Orleans' defense turned things around in Week 3. It is a tough blow for a player who likely would have been able to cash in this spring, and it leaves the Saints with another injury question mark on defense.
Nov 20 - 9:22 AM

Saints No. 1 CB Marshon Lattimore briefly re-entered Sunday's overtime win over the Redskins, but excited after one snap after re-injuring his right ankle.

Lattimore's one return snapped occurred in the third quarter. Lattimore wasn't noticeably hobbled on the sidelined, and tweeted afterward he was "solid." There's at least a chance he suits up for Week 12 against the Rams.

Coby Fleener caught 5-of-5 targets for 91 yards in New Orleans' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Fleener entered today with 88 yards since the calendar flipped to October. He doesn't offer legit TE2 value.
Nov 19 - 6:56 PM

Michael Thomas caught 6-of-11 targets for 91 yards in the Saints' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Thomas hit his high floor, but for the 10th time in 10 games, couldn't reach his ceiling. It's been frustrating for fantasy owners, but Thomas has been extremely consistent. He's practically a lock for 6/75. With only two touchdowns so far this season, Thomas is overdue for some positive scoring regression.
Nov 19 - 5:56 PM

Ted Ginn caught 6-of-6 targets for 87 yards in the Saints' Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Ginn also lost 12 yards on a rush. Each of the catches, receiving yards and targets were Ginn's second most of the season. Ginn has established enough of a floor that he can be safely trotted out as a WR4 with the ceiling for more thanks to his big-play ability.
Nov 19 - 5:55 PM

Drew Brees completed 29-of-41 passes for 385 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Saints' 34-31, Week 11 overtime win over the Redskins.

The 385 yards were a new season high. Brees appeared to end the Saints' wild comeback bid late in the fourth quarter, but an awful pick was called back by an illegal hands to the face penalty. Both of Brees' scores came in the final 2:53 of regulation. The game had appeared long over, but Brees ripped apart the Redskins' late soft coverage. Brees' pick came on the game's opening drive. He made a poor throw down field, and D.J. Swearinger swooped in for the easy takeaway. Brees continued to struggle to drive the ball, but it's scarcely mattered with the Saints' running game overwhelming opposing defenses. Brees will be a mid-range QB1 for Week 12 against the Rams.
Nov 19 - 5:24 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 11 times for 134 yards and a touchdown in the Saints' Week 11 win over the Redskins, adding three catches for 21 additional yards.

The 100-yard day on the ground was Ingram's fourth in six games since Adrian Peterson was dealt. He was having a quiet day until overtime, where he piled up 51 yards on two carries. His score was a cannon shot 36-yarder in the first quarter where he put a defender on skates at the second level. All eight of Ingram's scores have come since Peterson's trade. Ingram will be a top-five RB1 for Week 12 against the Rams.
Nov 19 - 5:08 PM

Alvin Kamara rushed eight times for 42 yards in the Saints' Week 11 win over the Redskins, adding six receptions for 75 additional yards and a touchdown.

Kamara is simply one of the most dangerous players in the league. He's a terror in the open field or when he gets an opposing defender 1-on-1. He's cleared 100 yards from scrimmage in three straight appearances, and is averaging 113 in six games since the Saints shipped out Adrian Peterson. He's an every-week RB1 in the Saints' run-committed offense. The Rams are on deck for Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:07 PM

Marshon Lattimore was forced from Sunday's game against the Redskins with a left ankle injury, and is questionable to return.

Lattimore checked out early, and has been riding a stationary bike ever since. It seems like he could end up returning, but he remained sidelined as of the late second quarter. Perhaps he'll be back after the break. The Redskins have been picking on P.J. Williams in Lattimore's absence.
Nov 19 - 2:07 PM

Saints DB Kenny Vaccaro (groin) is inactive for Week 11 against the Redskins.

Vaccaro's absence will be felt in the slot against Jamison Crowder. Also inactive for the Saints are QB Taysom Hill, RB Jonathan Williams, LB A.J. Klein, C Cameron Tom, WR Austin Carr and DE Al-Quadin Muhammad.
Nov 19 - 11:33 AM

Saints DB Kenny Vaccaro (groin) is questionable for Week 11 against the Redskins.

Vaccaro has sat out the last two days after getting in a limited practice on Wednesday. He seems likely to miss his second game in a row. P.J. Williams will fill in at slot corner if Vaccaro can't get the green light against Washington.
Nov 17 - 4:11 PM

Saints signed RB Jonathan Williams off the Broncos' practice squad.

It's reportedly a two-year deal. New Orleans had an open roster spot after losing Daniel Lasco to a season-ending spine injury. Williams resurfaced on Denver's practice squad after he was among the Bills' final cuts at training camp this summer. He'll serve as a change-of-pace option behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Williams adds depth to a Saints' running game that is already among the league's best.
Nov 14 - 1:22 PM

In an interview with XTRA 1360 AM, Drew Brees said he plans to remain with the Saints beyond the 2017 season.

This comes on the heels of an NFL Network report that the Saints are "uncertain" of Brees' future in New Orleans. "I feel like we’ve got a great opportunity ahead of us and I don’t plan on leaving New Orleans ever," he said. Brees is in the last year of his contract and admitted he has not "approached" the team about a new deal. Though some in the organization feel Brees has lost a step, the 38-year-old still leads the league in completion percentage and is fourth in quarterback rating behind only Alex Smith, Tom Brady and Carson Wentz.
Nov 14 - 1:19 PM

Saints RB Daniel Lasco is out for the season with a bulging disc in his spine.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the injury will end Lasco's season but is not considered career threatening. Mainly a special teamer, Lasco suffered the injury in kickoff coverage during New Orleans' Week 10 win over Buffalo.
