The New Orleans Times-Picayune doesn't expect Brandon Marshall to play in Week 11 against the Eagles.

Marshall has only been with the Saints for five days. He also may not be in game shape after sitting the last three weeks. Marshall doesn't figure to play many snaps even if he's active. He's likely going to have to wait until Week 12 for his Saints debut.
Nov 17 - 6:05 PM

Saints LT Terron Armstead (shoulder) is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

Armstead injured his shoulder/pec in Sunday's blowout of the Bengals. It's a huge hit to the Saints offensive line, leaving Jermon Bushrod to protect Drew Brees' blindside. Armstead won't return until Week 13 at the earliest.
Nov 14 - 8:50 AM

Saints signed Brandon Marshall to a one-year contract.

This move was expected following Dez Bryant's season-ending injury. Marshall did not appear to have much left in the tank during six games with the Seahawks earlier this season. He can be left on the wire in shallower leagues.
Nov 12 - 11:22 AM

Tre'Quan Smith was not targeted in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Bengals.

In four games since catching three passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5, Smith has totaled eight catches for 85 yards. Even on the high-powered Saints offense, Smith is not a reliable fantasy option.
Nov 11 - 3:56 PM

Mark Ingram rushed 13 times for 104 yards while catching three passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Sunday was Ingram's first 100-yard rushing game since Week 11 of last season as he found gaping room all afternoon against a non-existent Bengals defense. Ingram found the end zone on a 28-yard screen pass in which is almost appeared as the Bengals defense was trying to let him score. Ingram still took a back seat to Alvin Kamara at the goal line. Ingram's big day was largely a product of the opponent and game script, leaving him as a sketchy fantasy option next week against the Eagles strong rushing defense.
Nov 11 - 3:50 PM

Alvin Kamara rushed 12 times for 56 yards and two touchdowns while catching 4-of-5 targets for 46 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Kamara had rushing scores from four and one yard out, giving him his fifth game this season in which he's scored multiple touchdowns. With the Saints coasting, he and Mark Ingram shared more opportunities than previous weeks, but Kamara till dominated the snaps when the Saints where in scoring position. With 12 touchdowns now on the season, Kamara will be a set-and-forget option in Week 11 at home against the Eagles.
Nov 11 - 3:42 PM

Michael Thomas caught all eight of his targets for 70 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Thomas got the game started with a 7-yard touchdown on the opening drive and then added a 17-yard strike with two seconds left in the first half to put the Saints up 35-7 at the break. Thomas is on his way to having the most efficient receiving season in NFL history. Through nine games, Thomas has reeled in 78-of-87 targets on the season with seven touchdowns. Thomas gets the Eagles at home in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 3:36 PM

Drew Brees completed 22-of-25 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Brees also added a 1-yard rushing touchdown for good measure. Against the league's worst pass defense, Brees found no resistance on Sunday. He started the game off with a 7-yard touchdown to Michael Thomas and never looked back, completing passes to seven different receivers. Brees has now thrown 21 touchdowns to just one interception on the season while completing 77 percent of his passes. Brees will be at home against the Eagles in Week 11.
Nov 11 - 3:31 PM

Saints LT Terron Armstead suffered an injured shoulder and is out for the remainder of Sunday's Week 10 game versus the Bengals.

The Saints haven't had many significant injuries to this point in the season, but losing Armstead for an extended period time would a major loss. Journeyman Jermon Bushrod has replaced Armstead at left tackle.
Nov 11 - 2:17 PM

Saints declared DE Marcus Davenport, LB Manti Te'o, DB J.T. Gray, C Will Clapp, OT Michael Ola, DL Mitchell Loewen, and OT Chaz Green inactive for Sunday's Week 10 game versus the Bengals.

There are no surprises here as Davenport is expected to miss a few weeks with a toe injury. The first-round pick has four sacks and seven quarterback hits on the season.
Nov 11 - 11:45 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Saints are expected to sign free agent Brandon Marshall this week.

Marshall will take Dez Bryant's spot. The Saints worked out Marshall last week and were considering adding him even before Bryant's injury. Marshall didn't show much with Seattle earlier this season but gives the Saints a veteran red-zone presence. He'll push Austin Carr and Ben Watson for targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Saints could have interest in free agent Brandon Marshall.

The Saints signed Dez Bryant over Marshall earlier this week. With Bryant out for the year, they may circle back to Marshall as a veteran flyer. Marshall was a non-factor in Seattle the first seven weeks, but he could push Austin Carr and Ben Watson for targets.

Dez Bryant (Achilles) is expected to be sidelined eight months.

It gives Bryant a chance to be ready for the start of next year's training camp. Given his advanced age, he could easily be sidelined into the regular season. Bryant is going to struggle for free agent interest.
Nov 10 - 2:14 PM

The MMQB's Albert Breer confirms Dez Bryant suffered a torn Achilles at Friday's practice.

He's done for the year. Getting injured this late means Bryant is in danger of missing the start of 2019. It's a potential career ender for Dez after going unsigned until Week 10. The Saints visited with multiple receivers last week and may look to bring in another veteran behind Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith.
Nov 9 - 5:10 PM

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Dez Bryant left Friday's practice with what the Saints fear is a torn Achilles.

He's getting an MRI as we speak. This would be an absolutely devastating turn of events for Dez, who ended his nearly seven-month unemployment Wednesday by signing a one-year deal with New Orleans. Bryant wasn't expected to play this week anyway but now he could be lost for the season. With Bryant now likely to join Ted Ginn (knee) and Cameron Meredith (knee) on injured reserve, more will be asked of rookie deep threat Tre'Quan Smith down the stretch while Michael Thomas will continue to be a target hog for the 7-1 Saints.
