ESPN's Mike Triplett reports that the Saints plan to release LB Kwon Alexander. The veteran was set to make $13.4 million in 2021 and tore his right Achilles' tendon in Week 16. So this move comes as no surprise. We'll see if he can make it back to the field in a significant role for any team in the coming season. Long-term, there's still time for the 26-year-old to round back into form. He remains stashable if your IDP dynasty league is deep enough. Alexander's release plus Trey Hendrickson's impending free agency should help New Orleans find snaps for Zack Baun in his 2nd season.

The Saints traded up to select Wisconsin LB Zack Baun in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. Baun finished his Badgers career playing almost exclusively on the edge. But at 230 pounds, he'd likely have trouble holding up there every play in the NFL. New Orleans' 4-3 base gives him more of an off-ball LB role, but we'd bet on plenty of pass-rushing. Baun's cross-category potential and impressive overall athleticism makes him worth a bet in dynasty rookie drafts. The risk is that he plays a role similar to what Anthony Barr has with the Vikings -- which has included plenty of real-life value but limited fantasy production.
