Nick Vannett signed to Giants' practice squad

The Giants signed Nick Vannett to their practice squad on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The Giants promoted Lawrence Cager to their active roster with Daniel Bellinger ruled out for Week 12, so this is more than likely just a depth move. Vannett had been cut by the Saints this weekend and had just two catches on the year, so don't expect him to be active on Thanksgiving or to make a fantasy impact this season with New York.

Nick Vannett inactive for Week 4 vs. Vikings in London

The New Orleans Saints announced Nick Vannett is inactive for the Saints’ Week 4 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in London.

Fantasy Impact

Vannett doesn’t carry fantasy value himself as a tight end (one reception for five yards in 2023) but he is a key run blocker for the Saints who will also be without Alvin Kamara in Week 4. Vannett’s absence creates a glaring hole in a Saints run game already ravaged by injury. Vannett bring out, along with Jamie’s Winston and Kamara, is just one more reason to avoid the New Orleans’ offense in Week 4 for fantasy purposes outside of fading the field in DFS GPP tournaments.

Nick Vannett and Saints renegotiate contract

Nick Vannett and the Saints agreed to a new deal, reducing his base salary from $2.6M to $1.035M.

Fantasy Impact

Vannett’s new deal frees up $1.55M in cap space for this season, allowing the Saints to make an addition if needed. Vannett is a key blocker in the Saints’ running game but likely will not hold any fantasy value.

Nick Vannett not targeted in preseason finale

Saints TE Nick Vannett was not targeted in preseason win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

With Adam Trautman and Taysom Hill sitting out of the preseason finale it was Vannett's time to shine. Unfortunately, for the potential cut-candidate, he was not targeted. His competition, Juwan Johnson, was also not targeted. While neither offer much fantasy upside as Saints, they could move on to a more TE needy team.

Nick Vannett could be a cut or trade candidate

Nick Vannett is rumored to be a possible trade or cut candidate, per PFF. Vannett is in a battle for roster spots with five other tight ends currently still in camp with the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Vannett has seen the majority of his playing time in the second and third quarters this preseason. With Adam Trautman, Taysom Hill, and Juwan Johnson playing exclusively in the first half, Vannett may be on the roster bubble.
