Mark Ingram Out a Month - Hand Injury

Mark Ingram was finally starting to look like an NFL running back, picking up 143 yards on 24 attempts, with 3 TDs over the New Orleans Saints first 2 games of the season.  Now, he will miss a month with a hand injury.  Obviously if you own Pierre Thomas in fantasy football, this puts a little smile on your face, but Thomas has 4 less carries than Khiry Robinson and 2 less rushing...

Five Things to Look for in Saints at Browns

The best part of the game today is that once it starts we can start focusing on it as fans and at least momentarily leave behind the painful ending of week 1 in Atlanta. I’m not ready to call this game a “must win” but going 0-2 to start the season would be a big hole to climb out of. This is certainly a winnable game for the Saints and it’s critical to play well if they...

Saints Looking to Rebound Already After Week 1

I've always been sort of amused by the fallout from the first loss of the season, especially among a fanbase. I mean, there's all the hype amd hoopla of the first game, "We're gonna win the Super Bowl this year!" could be heard and seen on almost every team's fan sites everywhere. But you lose that first game, and suddenly those same places become the launching...

Who Should You Buy Low and Sell High After Week 1?

Even after just one week of NFL play there are quite a few players who you may want to try to add to your roster for a minimum cost, relatively speaking.  On the other hand, there are also a handful of players who you might want to try and get everything you can for them now; it’s unlikely they’ll do what they did in Week 1 on a consistent basis.  Here’s a list of guys to...

After a rather blah season...

Buy or Sell: Pierre Thomas

When New Orleans traded Darren Sproles to Philadelphia this offseason it opened up the pass catching RB role, most likely for Pierre Thomas. It’s unclear as of now how the entire RB situation will play out, as it has looked during the preseason like Mark Ingram will get a shot to be an early-down guy and New Orleans also obviously likes Khiry Robinson. But the Saints also love...
