Saints WR Ted Ginn (ribs) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. NFL Network’s Jane Slater mentioned WRs Willie Snead and Tommylee Lewis as guys who will pick up Ginn’s slack. But neither can be trusted in fantasy lineups in a game in which New Orleans shouldn’t need to throw a whole lot.

Saints WR Ted Ginn (ribs) will not play against the Jets today, according to NFL Network’s Jane Slater. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but the Saints probably know that they can win this one without him. Slater mentions WRs Willie Snead and Tommy Lee Lewis as guys who will pick up Ginn’s slack. But neither can be trusted in fantasy lineups in a game in which New Orleans shouldn’t need to throw a whole lot.

Saints WR Ted Ginn (ribs) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jets. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and expects to play. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. He’ll be a boom-or-bust WR3 if active

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. HC Sean Payton confirmed on Friday that his rookie has cleared the concussion protocol and will play against the Jets this weekend. Kamara remains a high-end RB1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) is expected to play against the Jets this weekend. The rookie put in his 2nd straight full practice on Thursday. Kamara -- and Mark Ingram -- should be busy with New Orleans whopping 16-point favorites.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (concussion) put in a full practice on Wednesday. If he hasn't completely cleared the concussion protocol yet, he's close. Kamara is on track to play against the Jets this weekend. He'll, of course, be an elite RB1 for that one.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara sustained a concussion on the 1st drive of Thursday night’s game in Atlanta. He carried once for 2 yards and caught 3 balls for 25 yards before exiting — but this is still a brutal turn of events for fantasy owners. Kamara will have 10 days to try to pass through the protocol ahead of Week 15’s meeting with the Jets.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Falcons. The ankle adds some risk to Lattimore, but there's also volume upside to a game-long matchup with WR Julio Jones. We have Lattimore in DB3 range in our Week 14 rankings.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is active for tonight's game against the Falcons. ESPN's Dianna Russini reported earlier today that Ingram's toe is "not a big issue." He belongs locked into season-long fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Dianna Russini hears that Saints RB Mark Ingram's toe is "not a big issue." It's sounds like Ingram's missed practices on Tuesday and Wednesday were more about the short week than the toe. Keep him locked into fantasy lineups for tonight's game against the Falcons.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is expected to play against the Falcons tonight, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. We don't know much about the toe injury, but Ingram didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it seems like a real issue. There's added risk this week, but fantasy football's #4 RB needs to be in starting lineups if active. We'll find out his official status around 7 pm ET tonight.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (toe) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, so it looks like his status is legitimately in question. The good news is that we'll know his official status by 7 pm ET tomorrow. If active, Ingram will remain a must-start in season-long leagues -- albeit with more risk than usual.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is inactive for today's game against the Panthers because of the ankle sprain that limited him to just 1 day of practice this week after costing him the Week 12 game. Lattimore's absence brightens the outlook for Panthers lead WR Devin Funchess and dings the Saints' team D.

The Saints on Saturday placed TE Coby Fleener on IR following the concussion he suffered in Week 12. The team promoted TE Garrett Griffin from the practice squad to join Josh Hill and Michael Hoomanawanui on the active roster. Hill stands the best chance of gaining fantasy relevance, but no Saints TE has done so with any regularity this season. Don't bet on anything big here.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He returned to a limited practice Friday after sitting out Thursday to rest his sprained ankle. We'll check on his status Sunday morning. Lattimore's not much of an IDP option, but his status impacts the outlook for Panthers WR Devin Funchess and the Saints' team defense.

Saints TE Coby Fleener (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Panthers. Josh Hill figures to serve as New Orleans’ lead TE but isn’t a fantasy option.

Saints TE Coby Fleener sustained a concussion in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Rams. We'll keep an eye on Fleener's progress through the protocol this week, but he's been off the fantasy radar for a while now.

Saints starting CBs Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and Ken Crawley (abdomen) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rams. That leaves reserve corners stepping into a lineup that Washington QB Kirk Cousins carved up a week ago. The matchup favors the Rams' run game, but there's plenty of upside for Jared Goff and the receivers. WR Sammy Watkins, in particular, carries much more upside than usual with Robert Woods out.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore left Sunday's win over Washington twice because of a left ankle injury. He initially hurt it on Washington's 1st series of the game and remained out through the rest of the half. Lattimore returned after the break but left again early in the 3rd quarter and did not return. We'll see about his status heading into a Week 12 visit to the Rams.

Saints DE Alex Okafor tore his right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's win over Washington. That takes as well-performing edge player off New Orleans' surprising defense. HC Sean Payton refused to go into specifics on a replacement plan, but rookie DE Trey Hendrickson looks like the primary beneficiary. He has put in his 4 largest snap shares over the past 4 weeks and presents some sleeper potential for deep IDP leagues.
