  Saints | Chase Young receives positive report    Fri Jun 14, 12:11 PM

New Orleans Saints DE Chase Young (neck) received a positive medical report after having his surgically repaired neck examined this week, according to a source. He is scheduled to undergo more tests in six weeks but expects to participate in training camp.

Footballguys view: Young was still productive playing through the neck injury last year, and we haven't seen him playing healthy for a long stretch since his second season. The Saints could hit a free agency home run if Young can return to that form. IDP league players should consider buying low on Young.

  Saints | Taysom Hill agrees to reworked deal    Thu Jun 13, 03:10 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill reportedly agreed to a restructured contract that converted his base salary to a signing bonus and lowered his salary cap number from $15.7 million to $6.8 million.

Footballguys view: Hill has a larger cap number next year (around $18 million) but the Saints will figure that out later. For now, Hill remains the Swiss Army knife he's always been. Fantasy GMs can use him as a gadget player where league software may consider him a TE or a QB.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara unhappy with contract    Thu Jun 13, 01:59 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara skipped the team's final mandatory minicamp practice on Thursday, June 13, due to what is believed to be contract-related reasons, according to Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com.

Footballguys view: Kamara is likely looking for more guaranteed money. There's only $1 million remaining in guarantees on his contract, but Kamara is scheduled to make around $18 million this season. The Saints could potentially lower his cap number for this year and give the centerpiece of their offense more security. Stay tuned to see if this lasts into training camp.

  Saints | No timetable for Ryan Ramczyk    Wed Jun 12, 01:37 PM

New Orleans Saints OT Ryan Ramczyk (knee) still has not made much progress in his recovery and there is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Dennis Allen.

Footballguys view: It's time to ask whether Ramczyk is going to play again, to be brutally honest. The Saints understand this, taking tackle Taliese Fuaga in the first round this year. If 2022 first rounder Trevor Penning can generate some positive momentum, the offensive line might be ok. Michael Thomas called out the Saints medical staff for their ineffective rehab plans earlier in the offseason.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara expected at minicamp    Sun Jun 9, 06:39 PM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara is expected to participate in the mandatory minicamp this upcoming week, according to head coach Dennis Allen. Kamara did not report for the voluntary workouts this offseason.

Footballguys view: While Kamara hasn't participated in OTAs, ESPN.com's Katherine Terrell reports teammates and coaches have said he was around the facility over the offseason. The veteran running back finished 2023 with a disappointing 1,100 scrimmage yards and six touchdowns after missing the first three weeks to suspension. Is there potential for a rebound here? If incoming offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak uses Kamara, currently RB14 on the Footballguys 2024 Draft Rankings, the way he used Christian McCaffrey in his previous job in San Francisco, we could see a return to past form.

  Saints | Chris Olave has shoulder injury    Wed Jun 5, 02:42 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Chris Olave (shoulder) is dealing with an unspecified shoulder injury suffered in the weight room a few weeks ago, head coach Dennis Allen said on Wednesday, June 5.

Footballguys view: This sounds like a nothing burger, but put a pin in it just in case this shoulder problem bothers Olave during training camp and the preseason. Olave has been able to practice fully but is wearing a red non-contact jersey.

  Saints | Alvin Kamara losing explosiveness?    Sat Jun 1, 09:10 AM

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara has averaged 4.0 yards per rush or less in each of the last three seasons, and he has just one run of 30-plus yards in that span.

Footballguys view: It happens to everyone as Father Time is undefeated. We'll see what Kamara looks like in training camp this year, but Fantasy GMs are preparing as if he'll post RB2 numbers. In PPR formats, we're still targeting Kamara to do his thing as the Saints' lead back.

  Saints | Taysom Hill could be true Swiss Army knife    Wed May 29, 12:13 AM

New Orleans Saints TE Taysom Hill's unique skill set has been on full display during organized team activities, according to Matthew Paras of NOLA.com. For example, Hill took part in individual drills with the running backs last week and is working with the tight ends this week.'It's been a lot of fun. It's weird to say after seven years of doing what I've been doing that I'm being asked to do things I've never done before. That is exciting to me and it's challenging, and I love to be challenged like that. I'm grateful for those guys creating unique and fun opportunities for me,' Hill said.

Footballguys view: Hill is kind of already that Swiss Army Knife. Fantasy GMs in superflex leagues can take advantage of Hill's status based on what your league software categorizes him as (most have him as a tight end).

  Saints | Revenge Game for Derek Carr    Wed May 15, 06:57 AM

The New Orleans Saints are going to play the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 17 of the 2024 NFL season.

Footballguys view: Derek Carr gets a chance to showcase his ability to his old team near the end of the regular season. Neither team will likely be pushing for a deep postseason run, so a little extra for this game could come from Carr trying to get revenge on his old team. As a matchup in Week 17 (fantasy championship week), Fantasy GMs should take note.

Undrafted free-agent TE Dallin Holker (Colorado State) received $235,000 guaranteed to sign with the New Orleans Saints, per ESPN's Katherine Terrell.

Footballguys view: Holker has a nose for the end zone, and he can find the soft spot in a zone. He didn't test well in the pre-draft process, but he might have better pad speed than he does timed speed. In super crazy deep dynasty formats, we'll keep an eye on his progress.
