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...

Offensive Player Grades at Lions

23 points on the #1 defense in the NFL isn’t that bad. They moved the ball pretty well on a number of drives, too. Still, the offense had this game handed to them on a silver platter numerous times by the defense and they couldn’t close. In fact, they played a heavy hand in sabotaging everything late in the 4th quarter. The Saints finished with 73 yards on 21 carries (3.5 per...

Brandin Cooks Bound for Superstardom with Saints

From 2006 until 2013, the Saints’ wide receiver corps underwent very little change. Led annually by Marques Colston, the Saints also featured—in no determinable pecking order—Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, and Robert Meachem. Only a quarterback of Drew Brees’ caliber could enjoy the immense success he has with such a lackluster rabble of wideouts. Of course, […] The post...

Trying to understand Payton/Colston’s decision v.s. the Seahawks

It’s been several months since the Saints lost a heartbreaker in Seattle in the playoffs. The reason I bring this up is because I’ve been hearing other Saints fans blast Colston for making that erroneous pass that ran the clock out. It’s not completely Colston’s fault, although he should have better instincts to just step out of bounds and give Brees another chance. The play...
