Terrance West signs with the Saints

NFL.com reporter Herbie Toepe is reporting that the Saints have agreed to terms with free agent running back Terrance West.

Fantasy Impact

The details of the contract haven't been specified, but West is clearly being brought in to help fill the void left by Mark Ingram's four-game suspension. This is West's third team in five years, though we wouldn't expect his stay to be long with the Saints, either. After hearing about backups Boston Scott, Jonathan Williams, and Trey Edmunds the last couple weeks, the Saints decided that they needed more depth at the position. The Saints have been hosting a bevy of running backs, including Jamaal Charles, so they wanted a veteran who could walk in and play right away. I'd expect West to have a 8-10 touch role over the first four weeks, giving him low-end flex potential, provided he makes the team.

Terrance West to visit Saints

Along with Jamaal Charles and Tim Hightower, free agent running back Terrance West is also scheduled to visit New Orleans and try out for the Saints on June 13. West previously visited Indianapolis and Philadelphia this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

West, 27, would presumably be signed as depth in the wake of Mark Ingram's looming suspension to open the 2018 season. Selected in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Browns, West spent the past three seasons in Baltimore, where he averaged a paltry 3.8 yards-per-carry and scored eight total touchdowns. If he signs with the Saints, West would merely be veteran depth behind Alvin Kamara.

Terrance West visits the Colts

Free agent running back Terrance West was in Indianapolis today to visit with the Colts. West, who averaged just 3.5 yards-per-carry in five games with Baltimore last season, previously visited Philadelphia earlier this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

West is a plodder who has a career 3.9 yards-per-carry average and caught more than 11 passes just once in his four NFL seasons with the Browns and Ravens. Indy's backfield is thin, but with Marlon Mack atop the depth chart, Robert Turbin acting as the short-yardage specialist and two rookie pass-catching backs in the fold, there might not be a lot of touches for West if he were to join the Colts.

Terrance West a healthy scratch Week 11

Terrance West is healthy enough to play after recovering from a calf injury but is a healthy inactive for the Ravens on Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact

With Alex Collins playing well, Danny Woodhead returning, and Buck Allen seemingly ahead of West on the depth chart, West is the odd man out in Baltimore for the time being and has no short-term fantasy value.

Terrance West ruled out for Week 6

Terrance was officially listed as out for Week 6 on Baltimore's injury report on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

West injured his calf early in Week 5 and never returned. It's good for the clarity of the backfield and expect more of the same as far as usage is concerned. Javorius Allen is going to benefit the most from West's absence with Alex Collins getting a slight bump as well.
