New Orleans Saints
Mark Ingram II
Tony Jones Jr.
New Orleans Saints wide receivers Tre'Quan Smith (chest) and Ty Montgomery (back) were limited in practice all week and were removed from the final injury report for Week 18 against the Atlanta Falcons. Running back Mark Ingram II (knee), however, missed the last two days of practice and is questionable to play. Smith will return after missing Week 17, but fantasy managers should be able to find more upside for their flex spots. Smith is averaging 2.7 catches and 30.1 receiving yards while scoring two touchdowns in 10 games this season. Ingram appears to be in danger of missing his second straight game with a knee injury that has bothered him in the second half of the season. Tony Jones Jr. would be in line to back up Alvin Kamara again, but he won't have any standalone fantasy value.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (chest) and running back Mark Ingram II (knee) were both limited in practice on Wednesday after sitting out the Week 17 win over the Carolina Panthers. It looks as though the Saints could be getting both players back in a Week 18 must-win regular season finale against the Atlanta Falcons. Smith has mostly been a desperation flex play in deeper leagues this year, and he's averaging just 2.7 catches and 30.1 receiving yards in 10 games. He has a career-low two touchdowns. With Deonte Harris back from his suspension, Smith should be ignored if he returns. Tony Jones Jr. had just one carry for negative-two yards with Ingram out last weekend. Ingram carries no standalone fantasy value as long as Alvin Kamara is healthy.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (chest) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers. Receivers Lil'Jordan Humphrey (illness) and Ty Montgomery (back) were listed as questionable. Neither Humphrey nor Montgomery were able to practice on Friday, putting their status in question this weekend. The good news for the Saints offense is that Deonte Harris is back from his suspension and the COVID-19 list, so he and Marquez Callaway should serve as the team's top two pass-catchers against the Panthers. Even if Humphrey and Montgomery play, they aren't realistic flex options in this low-volume Saints passing offense with quarterback Taysom Hill running the show.
New Orleans Saints wide receivers Tre'Quan Smith (chest) and Ty Montgomery (back) both missed practice on Thursday. It was Smith's second straight day on the sidelines, while Montgomery was added to the injury report on Thursday. Two straight missed practices for Smith doesn't bode well for his chances of playing on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. Both Smith and Montgomery will likely have to practice on Friday in order to play in Week 17. Deonte Harris is still suspended, so Marquez Callaway, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Kenny Stills would operate in three-wide sets if Smith and Montgomery weren't able to play this weekend. Callaway has been the best fantasy receiver in New Orleans, but he's merely on the WR4/5 borderline in the Saints run-first offense.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (chest) was unable to take part in practice on Wednesday. Smith played 14 offensive snaps in the Monday night loss to the Miami Dolphins before departing with a chest injury and never returning. The 25-year-old wasn't targeted at all by rookie quarterback Ian Book, who was making his first career start. Smith could be facing an uphill battle to play in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers. The good news for the Saints offense is that quarterback Taysom Hill is back from the COVID-19 list, but fantasy managers have found it hard to trust any of the New Orleans pass-catchers on a consistent basis in 2021. Marquez Callaway is your best bet, while Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Kenny Stills would see expanded roles if Smith is unable to play on Sunday afternoon.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith left Monday's game against Miami after suffering a chest injury in the second quarter. The wideout wasn't targeted in the game and was active after dealing with a shoulder injury all week. Now, managers will have to monitor this latest setback. If Smith is ultimately able to play in Week 17, he should only be considered in the flex tier in deeper leagues.
New Orleans wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (chest) sustained a chest injury in Monday's 20-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins. He exited to the locker room in the first half and wasn't targeted before leaving Monday's game. The 25-year-old is considered day-to-day. Smith has caught 27 passes for 301 yards and two touchdowns over 10 games in 2021. Unless quarterbacks Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian are activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list before Week 17, the Saints passing game is one fantasy managers can avoid with Ian Book under center. Marquez Callaway and Lil' Jordan Humphrey will be the Saints' top two wideouts if Smith misses any time.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith (shoulder) was listed as limited on the team's estimated Thursday practice report. Marquez Callaway has been the most productive Saints receiver from a fantasy standpoint. Smith has two touchdowns on the year and hasn't found the end zone since Week 10 while not exceeding five catches or 64 yards in any single game. In the last four games, Smith has been extremely mediocre, catching 11 of 18 targets for 96 yards and no touchdowns. The Saints will be down to rookie quarterback Ian Book on Monday night against the Miami Dolphins with both Taysom Hill and Trevor Siemian testing positive for COVID-19, so Smith should absolutely not be trusted in fantasy starting lineups.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith managed two receptions for 17 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over the Bucs. Despite minimal competition for targets, Smith has struggled to produce mostly all season, now recording 33 yards or less in the last four contests. Given Deonte Harris is still suspended and the Saints' pass-catching group is thin, Smith projects as a deep-league flex for next week against a Miami team that allows the fifth-most points to fantasy wideouts.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is a flex option for deep leagues against Tampa in Week 15. Smith hasn't been the most reliable fantasy option this season, and he has now posted 33 yards or less in the last three games. Tampa is middle-of-the-pack against fantasy wideouts, so Smith is still worth considering as a deep-league flex as Deonte Harris will also be out due to a suspension.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith managed three receptions for 33 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over the Jets. The WR has been struggling lately as he hasn't posted more than 33 yards in the last three weeks. With Deonte Harris suspended for the next two games, Smith should be considered a strong option in this passing game. In terms of fantasy, he would only be worth considering as a deep-league flex at best.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is worth considering as a deep-league flex play in Week 14. Smith has struggled the last two weeks, posting 31 and 15 yards, respectively. The WR's target share has been decent the last few weeks though, as he has seen at least five targets in the last four games, but the problem is he hasn't been to capitalize in his production. Deonte Harris is now suspended for the next three games, meaning Smith may be relied upon more. The Jets are somewhat stingy against fantasy wideouts, but the WR could still be serviceable as a flex play in deep leagues if you need the help.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith managed only two receptions for 15 yards on seven targets in Thursday's loss to Dallas. Smith's production has dipped in the last two weeks as he has posted 31 yards or below in the last two contests after getting at least 44 yards in all three contests prior to that. The WR hasn't shown consistency this year and he's only a flex play at best if the matchup is favorable.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is a flex play against the Cowboys on Thursday night. Smith only managed 31 yards last week but was playing well the prior three weeks to that. The 25-year-old had posted at least 44 yards in three straight contests while seeing seven or eight targets in two of those contests. The WR is the best pass-catching option on this team right now, meaning he will see a few targets each week. The Cowboys allow the seventh-most fantasy points to wideouts, so Smith is worth starting as a flex.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith posted four receptions for 31 yards on five targets in Thursday's loss to Buffalo. The entire New Orleans offense struggled on Thursday and Smith's momentum from the past three weeks was ruined in Week 12. The WR had posted at least 44 yards in the prior three contests before managing 31 last night. Smith hasn't been an explosive fantasy option, but his role should remain decent given the lack of pass-catching options on the team. Still, he should be considered nothing more than a deep-league flex going forward.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is nothing more than a flex play in Week 12 against Buffalo. Smith has been playing better in the last three games, getting at least 44 yards in those contests while also seeing at least seven targets in the last two games. It's safe to say he is the best Saints WR to start in fantasy. Still, given his generally modest production on a low-powered offense, there's reason to believe there are better options to start for fantasy this week, especially considering Buffalo allows the fewest fantasy points to WRs among all 32 teams. Smith should only be considered as an option if managers are really lacking depth.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith finished with five receptions for 64 yards on eight targets in Sunday's loss to Philly. Smith saw his highest target total and posted his best yardage total in five games this season on Sunday. The WR now has at least 44 yards in the last three games and he's showing better consistency. This means Smith is worth monitoring for fantasy and potentially even stashing for your team in the event he continues to perform better and gains fantasy value.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is only a flex option, at best, in Week 11. In four games this season, the 25-year-old has only posted more than 50 yards once. He was expected to have an elevated role with Michael Thomas out, but that hasn't panned out in this low-volume Saints offense. The WR will be hard to trust given his uneven numbers this season, so he's only a deep-league flex option if you need him. You should have better options for a flex spot in standard 12-team leagues.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith finished with four receptions for 44 yards and a score on seven targets in Sunday's loss to the Titans. Smith saw his highest target total of the season but has only posted 44 yards or more in two of four games played this season. The WR was expected to take on a big receiving workload but his numbers this season have been modest as he hasn't posted more than 53 yards in a game. It's best to keep the 25-year-old on benches for now, at least until he posts better numbers.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith will be tough to trust for fantasy purposes despite a good matchup against the Titans. Smith is coming off of his best game of the season, a four-catch, 53-yard effort against the Falcons. He'll get to face a Titans defense that has allowed the most receptions and yards, as well as the fifth-most touchdowns to opposing receivers. Smith has been inconsistent but could be a solid low-cost option in DFS formats.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith finished with three receptions for 53 yards on four targets in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Smith posted his best total of the season on Sunday and he has now played in three games since returning from IR. The 25-year-old is expected to be a top receiver on this team but he hasn't shown any consistency. The Saints' messy QB situation is also a downside. Smith is better being out of fantasy lineups until he shows consistency.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is not a viable fantasy play in Week 9. Smith posted three receptions for 33 yards and a score on three targets last week and has a total of 44 yards on the season in two games after returning from IR in Week 7. Now, though the Saints have a lack of firepower at receiver, they also have a QB dilemma which could damper Smith's fantasy value. Add that to his modest performances this season and it's best to keep the WR out of your starting lineup.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith hauled in three passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in a win over Tampa Bay. Smith caught his first touchdown of the year from Jameis Winston (knee), a nice toss into the back of the end zone. While it was an impressive performance from the oft-injured 25-year-old, his fantasy outlook will be questionable moving forward without Winston throwing him passes.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith is a risky play in Week 8 against Tampa Bay. Smith made his season debut against the Seahawks last week, totaling just one catch for 11 yards in the victory. The 25-year-old had sleeper appeal coming into the season but has missed time due to a lingering hamstring injury. Smith has a chance to produce decent numbers against a Buccaneers' defense that has been vulnerable against the pass. Given that he's unproven this year, fantasy managers should leave him on benches.
New Orleans Saints wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith mustered only one reception for 11 yards on three targets in Monday's win over Seattle. A lingering hamstring injury from training camp put the WR on Injured Reserve to start the season, and he was finally able to take the field on Monday. Nevertheless, Smith put up a dud. The Saints lack elite pass-catching options, and Smith should be the WR2 on the team after Michael Thomas (ankle) returns. For now, it's only worth monitoring him, as he's not fantasy relevant yet until he shows consistency and puts up decent production.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?
Yes! As you can see from this Julio Jones write up from his player page, we updated his news section as soon as the news broke.
“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
