Saints TE Jared Cook exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers to get checked for a concussion. He took a shot to the head on a 26-yard TD -- his 2nd score of the game. We'll update Cook's status when we know more.

Update: Cook has been diagnosed with a concussion and been ruled out.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Falcons. He missed the past 2 games.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (calf) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Falcons. Lattimore missed the past 2 games and remained limited in practice this week. We'll check his availability tonight, when the inactives are announced.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Panthers. That means P.J. Williams will likely slide out to start in Lattimore's place again, and rookie Chauncey Gardner-Johnson should see starter-level playing time in the slot. Both are down-the-list IDP options. Lattimore's absence improves the matchup for Panthers lead WR D.J. Moore.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. He made it back to a limited practice Friday after missing the previous 2 days with the calf injury that cost Lattimore the Week 11 game at Tampa. Even if he plays, Lattimore looks like a risky bet to play a full game. Find a safer option for the DB/CB slots on your IDP rosters.

The Saints have ruled CB Marshon Lattimore (thigh) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. That's good news for Mike Evans, who caught 0 passes among 3 targets in their earlier meeting.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's loss to the Falcons with a thigh injury and did not return. Lattimore could be seen jogging on the sideline and riding a stationary bike, trying to make his way back. We'll see if that means New Orleans' lead corner can make it back for next Sunday's trip to Tampa Bay. If he does, Lattimore will be in a good spot for IDP production. If he doesn't, the matchup gets much better for Buccaneers WR Mike Evans.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) practiced all week and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday’s smash spot at home for the Falcons. Kamara might cede a bit more work to RB Latavius Murray than he was before the injury, but he remains a high-end RB1. Murray is in the RB3/Flex mix in this week's plus matchup.

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 TE Jared Cook (ankle) was a full-go in practice all week and will play against the Falcons this weekend. Cook will step back in as New Orleans’ lead pass-catching TE and boasts lots of TD upside with the Saints sporting a huge 32.5-point implied total.

Saints HC Sean Payton confirmed that RB Alvin Kamara (knee, ankle) is expected to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. That's been the belief for a while now, so it was surprising to see Kamara limited in Wednesday's practice. He might cede a bit more work to Latavius Murray on Sunday, but Kamara is right back to RB1 status.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's expected to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons, but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Thursday and/or Friday.

Saints RB Jared Coof (ankle) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice, putting him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Falcons. Atlanta actually ranks 14th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to TEs, but Cook still brings exciting upside in Week 10 fantasy lineups with the Saints sporting a huge 32-point implied total.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. He’s expected to return following New Orleans’ Week 9 bye. Latavius Murray will again operate as the Saints’ feature back today. He turned 32 touches into 150 yards and 2 TDs last week.

11:10am EDT 10/27/19

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) is officially active for today’s game against the Cardinals. There’s some added risk here in his 1st game since tearing a ligament in his throwing thumb, but Brees has plenty of upside vs. Arizona’s 29th-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports that Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) will start against the Cardinals today. He and the team clearly feel confident enough in that injured throwing thumb -- especially considering New Orleans is off next week. There's still a bit more risk here than usual, but Brees has plenty of upside vs. Arizona's 29th-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Saints RB Alvin Kamara (knee, ankle) won't play against the Cardinals today. Kamara is expected back after New Orleans' Week 9 bye, Schefter adds. Latavius Murray gets another game as the feature back after racking up 150 yards and 2 TDs on 32 touches last week.

Saints QB Drew Brees (thumb) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. HC Sean Payton refused to name his starting QB on Friday, but Brees has said that he plans on playing. We’ll continue to monitor the situation. Whoever is under center for New Orleans — Brees or Teddy Bridgewater — will be in a nice spot at home for Arizona’s 29th-ranked QB defense.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara (ankle, knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. It’d make a lot of sense for New Orleans to hold Kamara out of this one with a looming Week 9 bye, but it looks like there’s at least a shot he returns on Sunday. We’ll continue to look for updates on Kamara and will get his official game status by noon ET on Sunday. Latavius Murray will be a RB1 if Kamara ends up inactive.

Saints TE Jared Cook (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. We’ll see if he can return after the Week 9 bye. With Cook sidelined last week, TE Josh Hill ran 19 routes and TE Dan Arnold 14. It’s a situation to avoid, despite the plus matchup.
