New Orleans released WR Emmanuel Sanders. It saves the cash-strapped Saints $4 million against the 2021 salary cap. Sanders saw 82 targets -- a 15.7% share -- last year, so his departure leaves behind significant opportunity. We'll see what else New Orleans does at the position, but WR Tre'Quan Smith is currently in line for #2 WR duties.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) has been activated from IR. So he'll return for Sunday's game against the Bucs after missing the last 3. Smith figures to re-join Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in 3-WR sets and has some appeal as a cheap DFS play.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. He's eligible to come off IR for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs, although it's still unclear if he'll be ready. We'll keep you updated.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) is out for Friday's game vs. the Vikings. With WR Michael Thomas on IR, New Orleans is down to Emmanuel Sanders and some combination of Marquez Callaway, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Juwan Johnson at WR.
The Saints have designated WR Marquez Callaway to return from IR. He missed the past 3 games after landing on IR Dec. 5 with a knee injury. Callaway played 17 snaps or fewer in each of his past 4 appearances and saw just 2 total targets over that span. He posted an 8-75 receiving line on 10 targets the game before that, though. It's too late in the season for Callaway to be a real option in season-long fantasy football leagues. There's a chance he becomes a sneaky DFS option if activated over these final 2 weeks, though. The 22-year-old makes for an interesting dynasty stash as well.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him to play vs. the Vikings on Friday. Smith's absence would leave Emmanuel Sanders as New Orleans' clear-cut #1 WR.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith injured his ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.
The Saints have placed WR Michael Thomas (ankle) on IR. So he'll miss the final 3 games of the regular season. The team expects Thomas "close to 100% for the start of the playoffs," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith will operate as New Orleans' top 2 WRs vs. the Chiefs, Vikings and Panthers the next 3 weeks. Jared Cook is back in the TE1 mix with Thomas out and QB Drew Brees back.
Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (concussion) isn’t listed on the final Week 11 injury report after getting in a full practice on Friday. He’ll play against the Falcons on Sunday but isn’t a viable fantasy play with Taysom Hill under center.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith sustained a concussion in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week.
The Saints have ruled WR Michael Thomas out for Monday night’s game against the Raiders. That’s been the expected move all week, though there was a bit of optimism Friday. We’ll see whether that means Thomas can make it back from his high-ankle sprain for Week 3. His absence leaves targets for Emmanuel Sanders and crew, and elevates Tre’Quan Smith to a starting role in a positive matchup. We can’t help but downgrade Drew Brees with no Thomas, though, especially after an unspectacular opener
Saints WR Michael Thomas suffered a high-ankle sprain late in Sunday's win over the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "It’s something he believes he can play through," Pelissero adds. "With an extra day before next Monday’s game vs. Raiders, nobody ruling Thomas out." It sounds like this is a relatively minor high-ankle sprain, but it's still worrisome. Just last year, we saw this injury derail Alvin Kamara and Saquon Barkley's seasons. We'll obviously keep a close eye on Thomas' status this coming week. His absence would be a big blow to QB Drew Brees, while opening up a ton of opportunity for Kamara, TE Jared Cook and WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Tre'Quan Smith.
Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s been out since Week 5 but should step back in as New Orleans’ #3 WR. That gives him some DFS tournament appeal in a pristine matchup against the Falcons.
Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Ted Ginn and Austin Carr will again serve as the #2 and #3 WRs — but WR Michael Thomas and TE Jared Cook are the only viable fantasy plays in New Orleans’ passing game.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith suffered an ankle injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Bucs and is officially questionable to return. He missed Weeks 3 and 4 with an ankle injury, although it's unclear if this is related.
Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (ankle) practiced all week and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Bucs after missing the past 2 weeks. Smith should slot back in as the #3 WR behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn, leaving him as a weak fantasy play in this Teddy Bridgewater-led passing game.
Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys. Ted Ginn and Austin Carr will again serve as New Orleans’ #2 and #3 WRs, but neither is a fantasy option with Teddy Bridgewater under center.
Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks. He didn’t practice all week and might be looking at a multi-game absence. Austin Carr, Deonte Harris and Lil’Jordan Humphrey get bumped up the depth chart behind Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn. Thomas is the only viable fantasy starter here with QB Drew Brees out.
