Fantasy Football News 2021

Most Recent Shark Bites

Saints K Wil Lutz announced that he suffered a setback in his rehab from core-muscle surgery and will miss the rest of the 2021 season. That leaves the starting job to K Brian Johnson, who made his lone XP and both FGs -- including the 33-yard game winner -- in his NFL debut against the Seahawks on Monday night.

The Saints have activated LB Kwon Alexander and DE Marcus Davenport. Both players are active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. We'd still go ahead and use LB Pete Werner ahead of Alexander in IDP lineups if you were planning to.

Saints WR Deonte Harris (hamstring) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks. Harris ranks 2nd among New Orleans WRs in both snaps and targets this season. His absence leaves the Saints with WRs Marquez Callaway, Kenny Stills, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Ty Montgomery. We'll see if WR Tre'Quan Smith is activated from IR for Monday night.

Saints QB/TE Taysom Hill (concussion) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Seahawks. Hill has played 37% of New Orleans' offensive snaps this season -- 48 at WR, 27 at TE, 22 at QB and 12 in the backfield -- so it's a tangible loss for this offense. It's good news for QB Jameis Winston, though, who won't lose snaps to Hill this week.

The Saints on Tuesday designated DE Marcus Davenport (pectoral) and LB Kwon Alexander (elbow) to return from IR. That doesn't yet restore them to the active roster. The team will have this week and the next 2 to decide on that for each player. But the designation suggests the Saints believe each player is close to being ready. Davenport should work his way quickly back into the starting lineup upon his return. Alexnader, on the other hand, might have to watch rookie LB Pete Werner take his job. We'll see how that situation develops over the next few weeks.

Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since hurting his hamstring a few days before the season opener. He'll return to practice this week, although it's unclear if he'll play vs. the Seahawks on Monday night. Smith isn't worth grabbing off the waiver wire now, especially with WR Michael Thomas expected back within the next few weeks.

Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) is still "a few weeks away," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Thomas is eligible to come off the PUP list this week, but it sounds like we shouldn't expect him to play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday. If you've stashed Thomas up until now, though, keep stashing.

Saints QB/TE/WR/RB Taysom Hill sustained a concussion in Sunday's game vs. Washington and is done for the afternoon. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week.

Saints WR Deonte Harris is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. Washington with a hamstring injury. We'll update his status when we know more.

Saints RB Tony Jones is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with an ankle injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Giants, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Jones can be dropped from fantasy rosters. The Saints signed RB Devine Ozigbo in a corresponding move. It's now Ozigbo, Dwayne Washington and Ty Montgomery behind Alvin Kamara on the depth chart. Kamara will continue to dominate backfield work.

Saints RB Tony Jones suffered a leg injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Giants. He had to be carted to the locker room, so don't expect to see him back out there today.

Saints WR Kenny Stills has been promoted to the active roster. The 29-year-old was signed to New Orleans' practice squad less than 2 weeks ago but has plenty of experience in the offense after spending his first 2 NFL seasons with the Saints. We'll see how much action he gets vs. the Patriots on Sunday, but Stills obviously isn't a Week 3 fantasy option.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore finished the week with a full Friday practice and is off the final injury report ahead of Sunday's visit to the Patriots. Lattimore missed Week 2 after thumb surgery but looks ready to return for Week 3. He's not a high-upside IDP option for this matchup, but the Saints defense gets its top cover man back.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (hand), CB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (knee) and DE Tanoh Kpassagnon (calf) are inactive for today's game against the Panthers. That leaves New Orleans without 2 of its top 3 corners. They will get former Texans CB Bradley Roby into the lineup for the 1st time after he spent Week 1 finishing up a suspension that carried over from last season. Kpassagnon is a rotational player, but his loos could be amplified by the defense already missing starting DE Marcus Davenport (IR). Overall, the Saints have already lost starters at every level of the defense vs. last week's lineup. That can only be good news for the Panthers offense.

The Saints have placed DE Marcus Davenport (shoulder) and LB Kwon Alexander (elbow) on IR. That means both starters will miss at least the next 3 games. We'll see beyond that. Zack Baun and Kaden Elliss are the next 2 LBs up behind leader Demario Davis. Each played 40% of the Week 1 snaps, with Alexander at 60%. It's tough to bet on either in IDP lineups for Week 2. At DE, Carl Granderson and Tanoh Kpassagnon will see more time with Davenport out.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is having surgery Tuesday for a chipped bone in his right thumb. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that he'll be "week to week" in his return timeline. That makes it sound as though we should expect Lattimore to miss at least the Week 2 visit to Carolina. We'll see beyond that. New Orleans will at least get CB Bradley Roby for that contest. He had to finish out a league suspension in Week 1 after arriving via trade from Houston.

The Saints signed WR Kenny Stills to their practice squad. Stills spent the first 2 seasons of his NFL career in New Orleans before moving on to Miami and then Houston. Stills is 29 now and caught just 11 balls across 10 games with the Texans last year. We'll keep an eye on him but wouldn't bother adding Stills to fantasy rosters right now.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport strained a pectoral muscle in Sunday's win over the Packers. "He'll miss some time, but should be back sooner rather than later," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. Whether the team places Davenport on IR should tell us more about when he might actually return. DE Carl Granderson looks like the next man up for New Orleans, with Tanoh Kpassagnon right there as well. First-round rookie Payton Turner was a healthy scratch in Week 1 and doesn't look like he'll be in the picture yet.

Saints DE Marcus Davenport came away from Sunday's opener with a pectoral injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team is reportedly awaiting results of an MRI, so we'll see about the severity.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (knee) is active for today’s game against the Packers
