Klint Kubiak is expected to be named the Saints' new OC, according to multiple reports. Kubiak is currently the 49ers' passing-game coordinator, so the move can't become official until after the Super Bowl. The 36-year-old son of Gary Kubiak has 10 seasons of NFL coaching experience. That includes serving as Vikings OC back in 2021. That team ranked 12th in total yards and 14th in points, ranking near the middle of the pack in run/pass split.

Saints WR Chris Olave (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. WR Michael Thomas remains on IR, so New Orleans is down to WRs Rashid Shaheed, A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood, and Marquez Callaway. Shaheed is the best fantasy bet and has some exciting upside as a WR3 today.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter both call Saints WR Chris Olave (ankle) a game-time decision for today's meeting with the Giants. But Rapoport adds that "there is not a lot of optimism that he can go." That's not a surprise after Olave missed practice all week. With WR Michael Thomas still on IR, Olave's absence would leave Rashid Shaheed as the best fantasy bet in New Orleans' WR corps. A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, Keith Kirkwood, and Marquez Callaway would round out the group. Olave's absence could also mean bigger roles for TE Taysom Hill and RB Alvin Kamara in the passing game. We've removed Olave from the Week 15 Rankings and updated Saints projections.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) is not listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He was a full-go in Friday’s practice, so he shouldn’t be limited in this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. Shaheed is an upside WR4 option and will get a boost if WR Chris Olave misses with his ankle injury.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Giants. We'll keep you updated on Shaheed's status over the next few days.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Panthers. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said this morning that Shaheed “has a chance” to return for next week’s game vs. the Giants. We’ll keep you updated on his status this coming week.

Saints insider Nick Underhill confirms that WR Rashid Shaheed (groin) will not play vs. the Panthers on Sunday. Shaheed's quad injury is "more serious than initially believed," Underhill adds. "Initially thought to be a contusion, a second opinion showed it is more serious." It sounds like there's a good chance that Shaheed misses more time beyond Week 14. He's droppable in most redraft fantasy leagues.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. He didn’t practice all week, so fantasy owners certainly shouldn’t count on him in Week 14 lineups. We’ll get New Orleans’ inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Panthers. Fantasy owners can't be banking on having Shaheed in starting lineups at this point. We'll see if he gets back on the field tomorrow.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (thigh) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Lions. He didn’t practice all week and might miss more time beyond Week 13.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed (quad) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Lions, according to insider Nick Underhill. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that Shaheed avoided a major injury, so he can stay stashed on benches in deeper fantasy leagues. WR Chris Olave is also iffy for Week 13 with his concussion, which could leave A.T. Perry, Keith Kirkwood, and Lynn Bowden as New Orleans' top three WRs. We'd expect to see a lot of Alvin Kamara, Taysom Hill, and Juwan Johnson in that case.

Saints WR Rashid Shaheed suffered a thigh injury in the first half of Sunday's game vs. the Falcons. He's officially questionable to return. With WR Michael Thomas on IR, Shaheed's absence leaves New Orleans with WR Chris Olave, A.T. Perry, Lynn Bowden, and Keith Kirkwood.

The Saints placed WR Michael Thomas on IR with his knee injury. He's out for at least the next four games, which makes Week 16 his earliest possible return date. Thomas would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups at that point. He can be dropped from redraft rosters. His absence should leave WRs Rashid Shaheed and rookie A.T. Perry in full-time roles. See where those guys sit in the Week 12 WR rankings.

Saints HC Dennis Allen said Monday that WR Michael Thomas (knee) will miss some time. Allen wouldn’t share if Thomas will land on injured reserve. Through 10 games, the career-long Saint has racked up 39 catches, 448 yards, and 1 score. Thomas can be dropped in shallow to standard-sized formats, but he’s worth holding elsewhere in case he only misses a game or two. From Week 13 on, New Orleans’ WR strength of schedule looks slightly positive. Rashid Shaheed figures to benefit most while Thomas is out.

Saints HC Dennis Allen called WR Michael Thomas' knee injury "fairly significant." He added that the injury isn't believed to be season-ending but that Thomas is getting a second opinion. The Saints have a Week 11 bye, but it sounds like we should expect Thomas to miss multiple games beyond that. He's droppable in most redraft fantasy leagues. Rookie WR A.T. Perry replaced Thomas in the Week 11 loss to the Vikings, catching two of four targets for 38 yards and a score. He's worth a look on the waiver wire in deep leagues. WRs Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed should also pick up more work with Thomas out.
