2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Jameis Winston is going to be the Saints' Week 1 starter at quarterback. There, I said it. Of course, I don't really know that. No one does, with the possible exception of HC Sean Payton. We've heard all the usual pre-camp proclamations about open competitions and guys earning their spot in a post-Drew Brees world. But we've also gotten a lot of indications out of New Orleans that Payton and company feel that Winston learned a lot and matured a lot in one year in the quarterback room with Brees.

The truth is, unless there's a major change in scheme coming (which is never out of play with the creative mind of Sean Payton), Winston makes the most sense. As well as Taysom Hill played in relief of an injured Brees last season, Winston is the more polished pocket passer, has the stronger arm, and has more command of the reads in the passing game than Hill at this point. Word is that Winston has done a lot of work on his accuracy, particularly in the short and intermediate game that's so important to the Saints attack, and ball protection has been drilled into his head over the past year. Unless he falls on his face during camp, it's hard to envision a scenario where he doesn't at least get the first shot.

With that being said, Hill will be a factor in this offense, and fantasy owners can almost count on his package being expanded from the Brees days. That means plenty of 3rd down work and lots of red zone and goal line play. That will obviously significantly cut into Winston's fantasy value, as will the two-headed running game of Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray, which I expect to be featured more with the departure of Brees.

In the end, even if Winston wins the job, it's not going to mean much for fantasy owners who should really be looking in places other than New Orleans for their quarterback.

News From The Past 90 Days
Jamies Winston named the starter in New Orleans
Strong second preseason game
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 27, 8:50 am

New Orleans
Jameis Winston has been named the Saints' starting quarterback and will make his first start for New Orleans on opening day vs. Green Bay Packers, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not it's official. Winston helped his causing by going 9-of-10 for 123 yards and two touchdowns to receiver Marquez Callaway. Killing Winston's fantasy value will be Taysom Hill who will still have a swiss-army-knife role in the offense and keep Winston in the QB2 conversation. This move does help all the Saints receivers and Alvin Kamara but it remains to be seen if Winston will target Kamara as much as Drew Brees did.


Saints add veteran RB Devonta Freeman
One-year deal
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 31, 5:00 pm

New Orleans
And this was quick: Former Falcons’ standout Devonta Freeman and the Saints now have reached agreement on a one-year deal, per his agent @DrewJRosenhaus. Freeman reunited with his former college teammate, Jameis Winston. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Freeman will be slotted in behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray on the depth chart. It's difficult to get excited about Freeman's fantasy prospects unless Kamara or Murray miss time with an injury.
