WR - FA
Week 13 Outlook
Saints WR Kenny Stills waived by team on Tuesday.
In a corresponding move, New Orleans has signed WR Kevin White to their practice squad. While perhaps not the most fantasy relevant news, this is a good opportunity to speak to the lack of depth at the WR position New Orleans has had this season without their star Michael Thomas. It remains to be seen if White will be elevated from the practice squad onto the active roster ahead of Sunday's Week 14 game vs the New York Jets, but even if he is there is no reason to consider him for fantasy lineups whatsoever.
Saints WR Kenny Stills caught 2-of-5 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 9 loss to the Falcons.
Stills only drew five targets but took one of them for a touchdown. Despite his touchdown, however, the Saints are getting healthier at the receiver which sends Stills backward in the packing order.
Saints WR Kenny Stills caught 2-of-5 targets for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Football Team.
Stills drew five targets but didn't do much with them. A scoreless 17 yards won't get it done in fantasy.
Saints WR Kenny Stills caught 1-of-3 targets for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Patriots.
Stills is the deep threat on a team that rarely takes shots in 2021. He is an afterthought in fantasy like the rest of the Saints' pass-catchers.
The New Orleans Saints have elevated WR Kenny Stills from the practice squad to the game day active roster for Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Stills' elevation suggests that New Orleans could be making changes to their receiver corps for Sunday’s game. The Saints have carried just five receivers on the active roster with Tre’Quan Smith on the injured reserve. Meaning a healthy scratch from Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris, Chris Hogan, Lil'Jordan Humphrey or Ty Montgomery, who have combined for just 164 yards receiving through the first two weeks, seems possible. After being drafted by New Orleans in 2013, Stills played in 31 games for the Saints where he had 95 receptions for 1,572 yards and eight touchdowns. More of a veteran presence at this point in his career, reuniting with Sean Payton is never a bad thing.
