  • NO Quarterback #7
    Whatever concerns the Saints had over Hill’s knee appear to be minor at best. Wednesday marked the first time Hill was on the injury report this season, and he was back practicing in full after just one limited session. Hill has a chance to earn work both on the ground and through the air with Jamaal Williams (hamstring) sidelined for the foreseeable future. As a result, those who can start Hill as a tight end could benefit from a potentially high-volume day.
  • NO Running Back #25
    Barring any setbacks, Miller appears ready for his NFL debut, which will come in Week 3 against the Packers. The dual-threat running back has dealt with knee and hamstring injuries over the last month, and was sidelined for the first two games as a result of those injuries. Now healthy, it’s possible Miller serves as the Saints’ RB1 with Jamaal Williams (hamstring) expected to be sidelined for the next several weeks. Veteran Tony Jones could split snaps with Miller, but Miller is the far more explosive option. Fantasy managers who have been waiting to start Miller should do so with caution in his first week. We wouldn’t recommend playing him outside of deeper leagues.
  • NO Running Back #32
    Jones Jr. was elevated from the practice squad before Sunday’s game to replace an injured Kendre Miller this week. With Jamaal Williams now injured, Jones Jr. will get his shot on the active roster even with Miller healthy. While many fantasy managers are excited about the prospect of Miller getting more work, Jones Jr. has been with the Saints longer and looked good on Sunday, particularly in pass protection. The two could split work on Sunday before Alvin Kamara returns to take over the backfield in Week 4.
  • NO Tight End #87
    Moreau has been splitting the Saints’ tight end reps with Juwan Johnson and, to a lesser degree, Taysom Hill. If Moreau is unable to play in Week 3, Johnson would earn the bulk of the routes and targets for the Saints’ tight end room. He would rank as a high-end TE2 in that scenario.
  • NO Quarterback #7
    Hill should be good to go by Sunday, but his injury is worth noting. The Saints are going to be without Jamaal Williams and Alvin Kamara in Week 3, opening up a few extra rush attempts for the positionless player. As long as Hill doesn’t enter Sunday with a questionable tag, he could push for TE1 numbers with enough carries.
  • NO Running Back #25
    Miller missed the Saints’ first two games because of the hamstring issue but was previously reported to be ready for Week 3. A full practice on Wednesday confirms that report barring a setback. Miller will return to split reps with Tony Jones in the Saints’ final game without Alvin Kamara. Miller is worth a stash in deeper leagues, but it’s hard to trust him with Jones coming off a two-score game.
  • NO Safety #6
    Maye was sentenced to six months of probation because of a 2021 DUI, so it’s possible the suspension is related to that incident. He will be eligible to return ahead of the Saints’ Week 6 game against the Texans.
  • NO Running Back #25
    Barring a setback to his hamstring in practice, Miller should make his pro debut against Green Bay. It comes just in times, as the Saints lost Jamaal Williams to a seemingly serious hamstring injury in Week 2 and Alvin Kamara (suspension) remains sidelined. Look for Miller to split the Week 3 backfield workload with Tony Jones. Against the Panthers on Monday night, Jones had 34 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries.
  • NO Wide Receiver #33
    Merritt is a former wide receiver who switched to running back for New Orleans. Despite a suspension to Alvin Kamara and injuries to Kendre Miller and Jamaal Williams, Merritt failed to carve out a role in the Saints backfield, leading to a healthy inactive status in Week 2 in favor of Tony Jones. Merritt’s departure indicates Miller is set to return and Jones is once again in the Saints’ favor.
  • NO Running Back #21
    Williams suffered what now seemed to be a serious hamstring injury against the Panthers in Week 2. He led the Saints’ backfield in the absence of suspended Alvin Kamara and injured Kendre Miller. Tony Jones led the rest of the way in Week 2, but expect more from Taysom Hill and Miller who is set to make his debut in Week 3.
