2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
I was among those who thought Emmanuel Sanders' career might be over after his Achilles tear in 2018. To tear your Achilles when you're over 30 years old, at a position that requires such quick cutting and change of direction, seemed to be the end of the road. Sanders proved me and many others wrong by coming back only 8 months later, showing the same speed and explosiveness he has built his career on.

He played half of 2019 with the Broncos and the other half with the 49ers, and produced 66 receptions for 869 yards and 5 touchdowns (despite having to switch teams and learn a new playbook halfway through the season). He is now 33 years old but all the Saints need him to do is be a dependable second option who can make defenses pay if they dedicate too much attention to Michael Thomas. That is something this team has been missing, and if he can provide even similar numbers to last year, the offense should be helped considerably.

Sanders is an excellent route-runner who specializes in running routes from the slot. That should be a perfect addition to this offense, and I look for him to be a very steady contributor. Even though I don't see him producing 1,000 yards or 8 touchdowns, he should provide a solid floor and be a great weekly flex option for fantasy teams.

News From The Past 90 Days
Michael Thomas to sit Monday night
Team discipline after altercation with teammate
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 11, 4:21 pm

New Orleans
Saints’ WR Michael Thomas had an altercation with a teammate at practice this weekend, per league sources. Saints now disciplining Thomas by sitting him Monday night, when he was being listed as questionable with an ankle injury. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas was listed as Questionable with an ankle injury but will now sit after getting into it with a teammate. Tre'Quan Smith and Emmanuel Sanders will continue to operate as the top wide receivers for Drew Brees. There's a chance tight end Jared Cook (groin) will return.


Injury Michael Thomas, Cook out for the Saints
Thomas limited in practice Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 2, 5:00 pm

New Orleans
Wow. Saints WR Michael Thomas ruled out for Sunday as they decide to practice caution with his ankle injury - along with five other starters ruled out: CB Marshon Lattimore, CB Janoris Jenkins, DE Marcus Davenport, TE Jared Cook and G Andrus Peat. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The amount of high-profile skill position players that have missed time over the first three weeks is astounding. Without Thomas and Cook, it should be the Alvin Kamara show once again for the Saints. Tre'Quan Smith and Emmanuel Sanders will be the wideout options for the Saints. Both are Flex candidates.


Injury Michael Thomas may miss several weeks
Ankle injury
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 15, 6:41 pm

New Orleans
#Saints star WR Michael Thomas' high-ankle injury is worse than originally believed, and he’s now expected to miss several weeks, sources tell me and @RapSheet. Thomas is as tough as they come and surely will try to defy that timeline. But it'll be a battle. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Thomas is a fantasy stud that can't be replaced. It won't be surprising if the team puts Thomas on the three-week injured reserved. Without Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith could see some increased playing time but targets typically headed to Thomas will likey be spread around to Kamara, Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Cook.
