Shark Bites

Saints WR Marquez Callaway caught 5 balls for 104 yards in Monday night's preseason game against the Jaguars. That included a 43-yard TD on a play that drew a defensive pass-interference call, as well as a 1-handed reception or 29 yards. "Every time the lights turn on, [Callaway] does an amazing job," QB Jameis Winston said afterward, per Pro Football Talk. In addition to WR Michael Thomas being out, the Saints have also gone without WR Tre'Quan Smith in each of the 1st 2 exhibitions. The team also lost TE Adam Trautman to injury against Jacksonville. Callaway seems to be seizing the opportunity and should open the season in New Orleans' starting lineup. He looks like the best bet to lead Saints WRs in targets while Thomas is out.

Multiple Saints beat writers mentioned on Friday how good Saints WR Marquez Callaway has looked in training camp so far. "He really has impressed as a potential WR 1/2 so far," ESPN's Mike Triplett tweeted. With both Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (leg) currently sidelined, Callaway is getting a big opportunity as the de facto #1 WR. And it sounds like he's taking full advantage. We'll see when Smith is able to get back on the field. But with Thomas expected to miss the first handful of games, Callaway has a chance to be a fantasy factor.

The Saints have designated WR Marquez Callaway to return from IR. He missed the past 3 games after landing on IR Dec. 5 with a knee injury. Callaway played 17 snaps or fewer in each of his past 4 appearances and saw just 2 total targets over that span. He posted an 8-75 receiving line on 10 targets the game before that, though. It's too late in the season for Callaway to be a real option in season-long fantasy football leagues. There's a chance he becomes a sneaky DFS option if activated over these final 2 weeks, though. The 22-year-old makes for an interesting dynasty stash as well.

Saints WR Marquez Callaway limped off with a lower-body injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Panthers. He was surprisingly busy and productive before exiting, hauling in 8 of 10 targets for 75 yards. We'll look for an update on his injury.
