  Saints | Michael Thomas fined, not suspended    Thu Oct 15, 02:24 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was fined $58,823.53 for 'conduct detrimental to the team' and was inactive for New Orleans' Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but he was not officially suspended by the team.

Footballguys view: We should see Thomas back in action after the team's bye week this week. The team sent a message to Thomas about what will not be allowed, and he's likely learned his lesson.

  Saints | Jared Cook will play    Mon Oct 12, 10:16 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (groin) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers Monday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Without Michael Thomas, the Saints offense will be in need of weapons like Cook on the field. Fantasy GMs have looked to Cook as a low-end TE1 this season.

  Saints | Michael Thomas disciplined    Mon Oct 12, 10:12 AM

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) won't play in Week 5 due to team discipline after he allegedly punched CB Chauncey Gardner-Johnson in practice.

Footballguys view: Thomas was close to returning this week and could have played on Monday night. Instead, he'll be watching his teammates play again and waiting for his opportunity to get back on the field.

Footballguys view: Thomas got in an altercation with a teammate and will be benched as discipline. The Saints are on a bye in Week 6 so we'll see him in Week 7.

  Saints | Jared Cook is questionable     Sat Oct 10, 06:30 PM

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (groin) was limited Saturday, Oct. 10, and is questionable. He's a game-time decision.

Footballguys view: Cook has a modest ceiling and isn't an obvious start with the Saints having a bye next week that could influence them to sit Cook for additional rest. Only possibly Dawson Knox or Anthony Firkser are suitable hedges, but they have their own availability issues with the Bills Titans game up in the air.

  Saints | Michael Thomas a GTD    Sat Oct 10, 06:26 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) was limited Saturday, Oct. 10, and is questionable. He's a game-time decision.

Footballguys view: Thomas has a lower ceiling than usual and the Saints have a bye next week which could influence them to sit him to get one more week of rest. He's not an obvious start but if you can roster Tre'Quan Smith you can wait and see if he's a go with a good alternative. There's also still a chance that Buffalo and Tennessee players will be available if Thomas is declared out on Monday.

  Saints | Tre'Quan Smith catches two TDs    Sun Oct 4, 05:53 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Tre'Quan Smith caught four passes for 54 yards and two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 4. He was targeted four times during the game.

Footballguys view: Smith had a strong game in place of Michael Thomas as he appears to be on his way to starting eventually, whether it's the Saints next year or another team after his rookie contract is up. He'll probably go back to waiver wires when Thomas returns, but we know he can produce if given the chance.

  Saints | Emmanuel Sanders finishes with 93 yards    Sun Oct 4, 05:47 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders caught six passes for 93 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 4. He was targeted nine times during the game.

Footballguys view: This was Sanders best all-around game as a Saint, but the return of Michael Thomas next week will cap his weekly ceiling. He's more bye/injury depth than a core piece of your fantasy lineup heading into a matchup with the Chargers.

  Saints | Latavius Murray rushes for two touchdowns    Sun Oct 4, 05:38 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray rushed for 64 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 4. He also caught one pass for 19 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Murray's two scores made him a strong play this week, and it looks like double digit touches may become the norm for him this year, making him a safer flex play. Next week, he'll face a Chargers defense that gave up five touchdowns today.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara posts over 100 total yards    Sun Oct 4, 05:31 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara rushed for 83 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 4. He also caught three passes for 36 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Kamara's 20ish PPR points was a disappointment after he was leveling off as a regular week winner through three weeks. The production was still there for the backfield with Latavius Murray getting two scores instead of Kamara this week. He's the most valuable running back in fantasy football heading into a matchup with the Chargers.

  Saints | Two touchdowns for Drew Brees    Sun Oct 4, 05:15 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees went 19-for-25 for 246 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Detroit Lions in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Everything worked against the Lions defense, but Brees fantasy numbers didn't show it because the running backs scored on the ground three times. An early deflected ball led to an interception and 14-0 deficit but Brees was calmly executing to lead the Saints to a much needed win. Brees is a low ceiling QB1 against the Chargers next week, although Tom Brady threw five scores against the Chargers today and Brees will get Michael Thomas back.

He was retested to confirm the diagnosis and it was determined that the original test result was inaccurate. The game will go on as scheduled.

Footballguys view: You can play your Saints and Lions as you normally would.

  Saints | Michael Thomas could return for Week 5    Sun Oct 4, 11:11 AM

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas (ankle) appears to have a 'realistic opportunity' of returning to action for Week 5's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: The Saints must have had some hope of Thomas returning this week or they would have put him on injured reserve. It sounds like he's still questionable for Week 5.

New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and has been ruled out for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Rookie Adam Trautman should get a big opportunity this week with Cook and Michael Thomas out. He's a fine emergency tight end if you need to replace Jonnu Smith this week and don't like your other options.
