Tre'Quan Smith Injury Updates

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 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 (foot) put in a full practice on Wednesday and isn't listed on the final injury report. So he'll play against the Cowboys on Thursday night. The last time we saw the rookie, he was exploding for a 10-157-1 line vs. the Eagles. It's worth noting that Smith has struggled on the road this season, but he'll be playing indoors in Dallas.

The Saints have placed WR Ted Ginn on IR. We still don't have any details on his knee injury or whether he's a candidate to return after 8 weeks. But Ginn should be dropped in all fantasy leagues. Rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith is the bigger winner here, as he figures to take over Ginn's role on the outside. He played 67% of the snaps and hauled in all 3 of his targets for 111 yards and 2 scores with Ginn out in New Orleans' last game. WR Cameron Meredith is also a candidate for increased volume.

Saints WR Cameron Meredith has missed several straight days of practice -- along with the 1st preseason game -- while dealing with an undisclosed injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the issue is not Meredith's surgically repaired left knee, but that's all we know. Meredith on Tuesday tweeted, "So many obstacles on my path, trying to test my perseverance." We'll see if any further info on his situation comes out and/or when Meredith returns to the field. Until then, it might be a good idea to back off him in best-ball drafts a bit. Rookie Tre'Quan Smith, on the other hand, gains late-round intrigue as long as Meredith remains sidelined.

Update: Meredith returned to practice Tuesday, according to Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate.
