Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Bucs. That figures to vault TE Adam Trautman into the lead role and might also mean more action in the passing game for Taysom Hill.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Friday, putting him in danger of missing Monday night’s game vs. the Bucs. We’ll see how he’s listed on the final injury report on Saturday afternoon. Johnson’s absence would leave Adam Trautman as New Orleans’ lead TE and potentially mean a bigger pass-catching role for Taysom Hill.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) put in a full practice on Saturday and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll be back for Monday night's game vs. the Ravens after missing the previous 2 weeks. Trautman isn't a fantasy option but does put a slight dent in TE Juwan Johnson's outlook.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) is inactive. Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report and then limited in Friday's practice, so he carries elevated risk today.

Saints TEs Juwan Johnson (hamstring) and Adam Trautman (ankle) are listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report and then limited in Friday's practice. Trautman returned to a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. With both guys at less than 100%, try to avoid this situation in Week 8 fantasy lineups.

Saints TE Juwan Johnson was added to Thursday's injury report with a hamstring and limited in practice. So his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update on Johnson. TE Adam Trautman (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. If he remains out for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders, TE Juwan Johnson will be a low-end spot-start option in fantasy lineups.

The Saints have ruled WR Michael Thomas (foot), WR Jarvis Landry (ankle) and TE Adam Trautman out for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. WR Chris Olave, on the other hand, should be set to return after missing Week 6 with a concussion. Trautman's absence boosts TE Juwan Johnson, who garnered 6 targets Sunday with Trainman leaving early.

Saints TE Adam Trautman is expected to miss Thursday night's game against the Cardinals after leaving Sunday's loss with an ankle injury, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Early signs are that he's avoided a serious issue," Fowler adds. Juwan Johnson should benefit from Trautman's absence and be a TE2-level option for fantasy football lineups in Week 7.

Saints TE Adam Trautman hurt his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He tried to return in the 2nd half but was unable to stay on the field. He's officially questionable to return.

Saints QB Andy Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes (71.4%) for 236 yards (8.4 yards per attempt) and 1 TD in Sunday's narrow loss to the Vikings in London. He spread the targets around, with WR Chris Olave drawing a team-high 7, WR Marquez Callaway getting 6, TE Juwan Johnson seeing 4 and no one else topping 3. Olave's 4 receptions and 67 yards led the team. Four other Saints caught 3 balls. Jarvis Landry came away with a mere 2 catches for 7 yards on 2 targets. We'll see about QB Jameis Winston's status for the Week 5 home date with Seattle.

The Saints are set to sign TE Chris Herndon, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Herndon flamed out with the Jets and then caught just 4 balls for the Vikings last year. New Orleans' TE depth start is a bit fluid with Adam Trautman and Taysom Hill at the top, but we'd still consider Herndon a long shot to earn a significant role.

Saints TE Adam Trautman was activated from the COVID list on Wednesday. He'll be back for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers but would be a desperation fantasy play.

The Saints on Wednesday placed TE Adam Trautman on the COVID list. If he misses Monday night's game against Miami, the Nick Vannett would be in position to lead New Orleans TEs. Juwan Johnson is also currently on the COVID list.

Saints TE Adam Trautman (knee) has been activated from IR. He returned to practice this week and figures to play vs. the Bucs on Sunday night. Trautman averaged 6.8 targets and 4.0 catches in his last 4 games -- but none of those came with QB Taysom Hill. He's worth considering in 1-game DFS contests but isn't a viable Week 15 season-long play.

Saints TE Adam Trautman is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an MCL sprain in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That makes the 2nd-year TE droppable in just about all redraft fantasy football leagues. We'll see whether Juwan Johnson can get back into the picture, but Nick Vannett and Garrett Griffin both played ahead of him at Philly. Vannett figures to be the next guy up.

Saints TE Adam Trautman isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. He suffered a foot injury in the 2nd preseason game but is ready for this weekend's regular-season opener vs. the Packers. Trautman is a fine bench stash but shouldn't be in Week 1 fantasy lineups.
