Saints QB Taysom Hill has been placed on the COVID list. He's joined by QB Trevor Siemian. That leaves 4th-round rookie QB Ian Book to make his 1st career start vs. the Dolphins on Monday Night Football. The Notre Dame product was a mediocre college passer, leaving school with a 63.8% completion rate, 7.8 yards per attempt and 72 TDs vs. 20 INTs. He did run for 1,517 yards and 17 TDs over 4 college seasons -- and then ran a 4.65-second 40-yard dash at his Pro Day. Book goes just 6'0 and 211 pounds, though, so he's no Taysom Hill. Book is only in play for DFS showdown contests. Expect a heavy dose of RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram on Monday night.

Saints RB Mark Ingram was activated from the COVID list and practiced on Friday. He should play vs. the Bucs on Sunday night, providing a change of pace behind RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints HC Sean Payton has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday night's game vs. the Bucs. One of the best offensive minds in the game and New Orleans' play caller, Payton's absence will be felt. Consider it a slight downgrade for QB Taysom Hill and RB Alvin Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara will carry the "full load" against the Jets today, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Kamara has been out since Week 9, but the Saints don't really have the option to ease him in with RBs Mark Ingram and Ty Montgomery on the COVID list. Kamara has as much upside as any RB this week.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. HC Sean Payton said Friday that Kamara was “real close” to playing last week, and that it was actually a hamstring issue that kept Kamara out. RBs Mark Ingram and Ty Montgomery are on the COVID list and are likely to miss Sunday’s game, so Kamara should be in for a heavy workload against the league’s 32nd-ranked RB defense.

Saints RB Ty Montgomery has joined RB Mark Ingram on the COVID list. Both guys are unlikely to be cleared for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. New Orleans might not have any choice but to give RB Alvin Kamara a full workload in his first game back from his MCL injury.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) put in a full practice on Wednesday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Jets, barring a setback. And a full week of practice would set him up to play his usual role. Kamara can be penciled into Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Saints RB Mark Ingram has landed on the COVID list. He's reportedly vaccinated, giving him an outside shot to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Ingram wasn't much of a fantasy option with RB Alvin Kamara slated to return from his knee injury. But his absence might mean a few extra touches for Kamara.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is expected back for Sunday's game vs. the Jets, according to insider Jeff Duncan. Kamara has been sidelined since spraining an MCL in Week 9. He'll carry some added risk in his first game back, but the matchup against the league's 32nd-ranked RB defense makes Kamara nearly impossible to bench in fantasy.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Kamara got in 3 limited practices this week, so we're tentatively expecting him to return for Week 14. RB Mark Ingram (knee) put in a full week of practice and will be back in the lead role tonight. He averaged 15 carries and 7.5 targets across Weeks 10 and 11, although we'd expect that target volume to take a hit with QB Taysom Hill under center. New Orleans will also be without starting OTs Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. He was limited in practice all week. Kamara seems more likely than not to return for this one, but you'll need to check back around 7 pm ET on Thursday to see if he's active. Kamara will come with more risk than usual in fantasy lineups if he does suit up. RB Mark Ingram (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report and will be available tomorrow night.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) remained limited in Tuesday's practice. “Still a little bit of a ‘we’ll see’ situation with Alvin Kamara, just as far as whether he plays and, if he does play, how much he’s used in this game considering that he’s missed the last 3 after having a setback from his MCL return," insider Nick Underhill said Tuesday. We'll see what Kamara does on Wednesday and how he's listed on the final injury report for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) returned to a limited practice on Monday. It gives him a shot to return for Thursday night's game vs. the Cowboys. RB Mark Ingram (knee) was a full participant on Monday, so he should be available for the Dallas game. We'll get another update on this backfield tomorrow.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. He didn't practice all week. RB Mark Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable after putting in limited practices on Monday and Wednesday. We'll look for updates on his status and get New Orleans' inactives around 7 pm ET on Thursday. If Ingram can't go, Tony Jones would step in as the Saints' lead back.

Saints RBs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram missed Tuesday's practice with knee injuries. Kamara seems like a long shot to make it back for Thursday night's game vs. the Bills. Ingram's status is less clear. The veteran might just be getting some time off on the short week, but check back tomorrow for another update. Insider Nick Underhill says RB Tony Jones would "carry the load" if Kamara and Ingram are out Thursday. Jones is a fine speculative pickup tonight.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles. He was limited on Wednesday before missing Thursday and Friday’s practices, so it looks like he suffered a setback. Kamara’s absence again leaves Mark Ingram as New Orleans’ lead back. He handled 14 carries and 7 targets on an 85% snap rate last week. That’s RB1 usage, but it’s worth noting that the Saints will be without both LT Terron Armstead and RT Ryan Ramczyk on Sunday.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) did not practice on Thursday. That followed a limited practice on Wednesday. Kamara either got the day off or suffered a setback on Wednesday. We'll see if he practices on Friday and how he's listed on the final injury report. Mark Ingram should be rostered in all fantasy leagues as a strong RB2 if Kamara misses this weekend's game vs. the Eagles.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. He presumably has a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on him over the next couple of days.
