Saints DE Trey Hendrickson (neck) is inactive for today's game against the Vikings. That could leave more snaps available for DE Marcus Davenport, who ramped up to a season high in total snaps last week against the Chiefs. Davenport carries sneaky upside against a Minnesota offense that allowed 13 sacks over the past 3 games. But there's also risk to a guy with just 1.5 sacks for the season and 2 total QB hits since Week 8. New Orleans will also miss FS Marcus Williams, which improves the passing matchup for the Vikings.
Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Chargers. He missed last week's game and remained limited in practice this week but is available for IDP lineups if you waited for him. DE Marcus Davenport (toe) will also be making his season debut. He missed the first 4 games and remained limited in practice this week. We'll see how much playing time Davenport takes on in his return. DT Sheldon Rankins (thumb) is also active after entering the night questionable. Neither he nor Davenport belong in lineups in most IDP leagues.
The Saints have ruled CB Marshon Lattimore (hamstring) and CB Janoris Jenkins (shoulder) out for Sunday's game at Detroit. That leaves New Orleans without it's top 2 corners against a Lions offense sporting Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones on the outside. The Saints will also continue to be without DE Marcus Davenport (elbow, toe).
The Saints have ruled DE Marcus Davenport out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with an elbow injury. According to NOLA.com's Luke Johnson, Davenport had been practicing recently with a brace on his left elbow. He sat out each of this week's workouts, however. We'll see about his status heading into Week 2.
The Saints gave up next year's 1st-round pick to move up from 27th to 14th in Round 1 of the NFL Draft to take DE Marcus Davenport. The UT-San Antonio pass rusher tallied 15 sacks and 27.5 tackles for loss over the past 2 season. He then posted the 3rd-best speed score in this edge class. Davenport will present lots of IDP upside in sack- and pressure-friendly fantasy football leagues.
