Ted Ginn expected to play 'flanker' on Saints

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton told the media he has a "crystal-clear vision" on how to utilize newly signed wide receiver Ted Ginn on the offense in 2017. “I see him playing at flanker," Payton said via ESPN. "I see him being a guy that can take the top off the coverage. I like what this guy does."

Fantasy Impact

Ginn, who signed with the Saints at the beginning of free agency, is expected to have a featured role on the offense in 2017. He'll likely play a similar role that recently departed wide receiver, Brandin Cooks played on the team during his tenure with the Saints. Although Michael Thomas and Willie Snead will likely enter 2017 as the top two wideouts on New Orleans' depth chart, Ginn could be the mainstay at the No. 3 spot, assuming he beats out the underwhelming Brandon Coleman this offseason. In the past two seasons with the Panthers, Ginn compiled a 98-1,491-14 stat line while playing in their run-first offense. However, Ginn could be in line for a career year in Sean Payton's pass-happy system.

Ted Ginn to sign with Saints

ESPN's Dianna Russini is reporting the New Orleans Saints are signing wide receiver Ted Ginn.

Fantasy Impact

After two years in Carolina, Ginn is moving on from the Panthers and will sign with the Satins. The veteran wideout and return ace had two of the best statistical seasons of his 10-year career while in Carolina. Since 2015, Ginn caught 98 targets for 1,491 yards and 14 touchdowns while only missing one game in that span. With Brandin Cooks expected to be traded, Ginn will likely have a key role in the Saints' passing attack in 2017.

Ted Ginn finishes with 69 yards in Week 17

Ted Ginn finished the season with 69 yards in Week 17, while tied for a team-high in targets in the game with seven. Ginn also added two rushes for 24 yards. Ginn followed up the best season of his career with 684 yards and a total of nine touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact

Ginn was Cam Newton's top receiver coming down the stretch this season after being his go-to-guy the previous season. Ginn will still be fighting for targets next season with Kelvin Benjamin and Greg Olsen, leaving him as a WR3 next season if he is back with the Panthers.
