The Saints have signed former Patriots RB Mike Gillislee to a 1-year deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gillislee steps into the spot vacated by Jonathan Williams' Saturday release and could see meaningful touches during Mark Ingram's 4-game suspension. We'll, of course, need to wait at least a week to see before trying to use Gillislee in fantasy lineups. His arrival keeps Trey Edmunds -- and perhaps Boston Scott -- buried on the depth chart for now. Alvin Kamara is the only Saints RB who should be in Week 1 fantasy football plans.
The Saints have cut RB Jonathan Williams, who seemed on track to pick up early carries in Mark Ingram's absence. Williams' departure leaves Trey Edmunds and rookie Boston Scott as potential early touch collectors during Ingram's 4-game suspension. Don't go out of your way to draft any non-starting Saints RB over the next week, though.
