Who Dat in the Saints Backfield

When it comes to fantasy football, the New Orleans Saints are known for Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.  Sure they have one of the most consistent receivers in Marques Colston and an explosive rookie in Brandin Cooks, but even we didn't place to much value on them when we ranked our WRs.   Brees has produced just 3 double digit WRs this season, Cooks (15.5) in Week 1 on 7...

Mailbag: Is there a precedent to move on from New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees?

Nick, there’s no question it’s been a difficult season so far. In light of Drew Brees’ late interception against the Lions, I have to ask if the Saints should move on from Brees this offseason like the Colts did with Peyton Manning? – Carl Carl, I understand your frustration and Brees certainly hasn’t been at his best this year.

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees deemed one of Week 7′s biggest goats

Nearly midway through the 2014 NFL season, the league is starting to take shape. It’s easier and easier to see what teams are contenders and which ones are just not ready for primetime.

Is This House Worth Buying?

It’s likely that Sam Shields won’t return from his knee injury until sometime after the bye. That means the defense will probably have to play at least one more game without its best corner.

Close loss to Lions makes 2-4 a reality for Saints

For about 56 minutes of the Saints 24-23 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, there was hope. It appeared that finally, the real Saints team decided to show up. The defense that allowed 28.2 points per game through the first five games was uncharacteristically stingy–only allowing 10 points. The offense–and Drew Brees–had moments of old, such as an effortless 46-yard touchdown...
