Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) and LB Pete Werner (shoulder, oblique) are active for today's game against the Panthers. Neither is a high-level IDP play, though there's upside to the matchup for each player.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He appears to be in better shape than last week, though, when Jordan played through a questionable tag. Then, he missed all three days of practice before playing limited snaps (29%) in a loss to the Lions. Jordan managed limited practices Thursday and Friday this week, so we'd expect him to be more involved Sunday. There's still risk, though, especially for a player with just 2 sacks all season. You can find Jordan in DL3 territory of our Week 14 rankings. There's upside to the matchup, though, if you're looking for an option down there.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is active for today's game against the Lions. He didn't practice at all during the week and faces an opponent allowing less than 2 sacks per fame on the season. You probably have a better -- or at least safer -- option for your IDP lineup this week.

Saints Edge Cameron Jordan (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions. Jordan missed practice all week. HC Dennis Allen said Friday that the team will give Jordan "a chance to play until [the] last moment," according to Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football. You should plan as though Jordan won't be available for your IDP lineup.

The Saints have ruled LB Pete Werner (shoulder, oblique) and S Marcus Maye (shoulder) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. We wouldn't target a replacement for either in IDP lineups, though Werner's absence can only help the tackle upside for LB Demario Davis.

The Saints placed CB Marshon Lattimore (knee) on IR ahead of Sunday's loss to the Falcons. That means he'll miss at least three more games, improving the WR matchups for the Lions, Panthers, and Giants the next three weeks. Unfortunately for us, that trio of teams doesn't feature many WRs worth plugging into starting lineups in common-sized fantasy football leagues.

Edge Jason Pierre-Paul will sign with the Saints, according to CBS' Josina Anderson. Pierre-Paul is an interesting addition for the New Orleans defense, but it's hard to imagine much fantasy impact. He tallied just 3 sacks -- plus 5 passes defensed -- over 14 games with the Ravens last season. JPP's now 34.

The Saints have several defensive starters questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts: LB Demario Davis (knee), S Tyrann Mathieu (foot), S Marcus Maye (hamstring, illness), and CB Alontae Taylor (hip). Davis and Mathieu played through their issues last week and seem likely to do so again. Taylor popped up on the injury report Thursday and put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. Maye finished the week missing Friday's workout. We'll check their statuses Sunday.

Saints LB Demario Davis (knee) and S Tyrann Mathieu (foot) are active for tonight's game aginst the Jaguars. We moved Davis down the Week 7 LB rankings for his knee risk, though, given that it was bad enough to make him a game-time decision. Mathieu managed limited practices throughout the short week and seems fine for his normal level of IDP use.

Saints LB Demario Davis is a game-time decision tonight against the Jaguars. He has missed practice this week with a knee injury despite not missing a single snap of Sunday's game against the Texans. We've knocked Davis down the Week 7 LB rankings and view him as risky even if he does play. If he can't go, journeyman Jaylon Smith would start in his place, according to Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com. We also gave Pete Werner a boost in the Week 7 rankings.

The Saints get S Marcus Maye back this week after his three-game suspension under the league personal-conduct policy. Maye's ban came from a 2021 DUI charge that didn't get resolved until this summer. Jordan Howden has been the primary fill-in, but Maye should immediately reclaim his post. The veteran collected 13 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 INT over this season's first two games. He's not a high-level IDP option but worth being aware of in deeper leagues.

Saints CB Paulson Adebo (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Packers. That leaves New Orleans without two secondary starters, after S Marcus Maye was suspended three games earlier this week for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Fifth-round rookie Jordan Howden will start in Maye's place. Alontae Taylor looks like the No. 2 CB, with Isaac Yiadom filling the third spot against Green Bay.

The Saints have agreed to a two-year extension with Edge Cameron Jordan. The deal includes $27.5 million guaranteed, a particularly noteworthy number given that Jordan is already 34. He's coming off significant declines by nearly all measures last season, traditional stats and advanced metrics. This pact says New Orleans believes Jordan will remain a big part of the defense at least through this year, though. With a contract that now runs through 2025, Jordan's presence for 2024 seems like a lock as well. We'll see beyond that. Jordan doesn't sit as high in our IDP rankings as previous years. But he's also likely to go in value range of your drafts.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is active for today's game against the Eagles. It will be his 1st game action since Week 5 internal injuries that included a lacerated kidney. It's tough to know how effective he'll be, but New Orleans has clearly been cautious with the veteran. And he carried no game status on the final injury report of the week, despite remaining limited in practice. The long layoff will likely lessen any hesitation the Eagles might have about challenging Lattimore in coverage, which would help his target count. Lattimore will be a risk-reward play in IDP lineups for Week 17.

Saints LB Pete Werner (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Eagles. He sports some re-injury risk after leaving his last game early, missing last week and remaining limited in practice all week. But he also carries significant tackle upside whenever on the field. We've got Werner modestly projected in our Week 17 IDP rankings. Philadelphia has been a worse scoring matchup for LBs than you'd probably expect for such a run-favoring offense.

Saints LB Pete Werner (hamstring) and CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Each put in limited practices all week. Lattimore still hasn't played since Week 5 and would be tough to use in IDP lineups if active. Werner returned from ankle surgery in Week 15 but left that contest early with the hamstring issue. The lack of a full practice makes him risky as well. New Orleans has ruled S Marcus Maye (shoulder) out for the game.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. S Marcus Maye (shoulder) is active.

The Saints have ruled LB Pete Werner (hamstring) out for Saturday's game agains the Browns. His absence pushes Kaden Elliss back into the starting lineup, and you can find him in our Week 16 IDP rankings. The Saints also list S Marcus Maye (shoulder) and CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) as questionable.

Saints LB Pete Werner (ankle) is active for today's game against the Falcons. It'll be his 1st game since the Week 9 injury that required surgery. There will be some risk to using him in that return game, especially given that Werner remained limited in practice all week. But he has been a high-ceiling IDP performer when healthy this year. CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) is inactive once again. He hasn't played since Week 5.

Saints LB Pete Werner (ankle) and CB Marshon Lattimore (abdomen) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Both guys entered Week 13 questionable -- before the bye -- but didn't play. Werner and Lattimore each remained limited throughout this practice week. We'll see whether either is finally ready to return come Sunday.
