Fantasy Impact:

Listed at 6-foot-4, 255 pounds, Yelder caught 52 passes for 688 yards and also rushed for another score last season for Western Kentucky. New Orleans recently cut Coby Fleener and has 37-year-old veteran Ben Watson atop their depth chart. Yelder will have a difficult time cracking the 53-man roster, but he's a name to remember when training camp kicks off this summer.
