Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Rest of Season Rankings
Alvin Kamara Note

Those preseason concerns over Kamara seem foolish now, as he's totaled four touchdowns and four receptions through the Saints' first two games. He's the key cog in the New Orleans offense right now, especially with Michael Thomas battling a high-ankle sprain, and he should continue to be a top-four back in fantasy so long as he remains healthy.

Michael Thomas Note

Thomas returned in Week 9 against the Bucs, and although he didn't put up huge fantasy numbers, he showed that he was fully healthy. He should be considered a strong WR1 going forward, though perhaps not the top option at his position given Davante Adams' performance.

Latavius Murray Note

When you make a trade for someone like Murray, you're trading for someone his manager views as a bye-week filler or RB4 option. Now that most bye weeks are out of the way, your goal should be to collect as many league-winners on your bench as possible. If Alvin Kamara were to miss any time, Murray would be an every-week RB1, which is worth much more than Murray's bye week filler/RB4 pricetag. His schedule isn't going to allow you to start him right now, but we're not acquiring him to be a starter right now.

Emmanuel Sanders Note

Sanders will miss Week 8's game against the Bears, as he is still on the COVID-19 reserve list. When he does return, he should provide borderline WR3 value whenever Michael Thomas is out of the lineup. Which, as of now, appears to be for the foreseeable future.

Jared Cook Note

Cook's will miss Week 4 with a groin injury he suffered against the Packers. The severity is unclear, but given that he couldn't even muster a limited practice this week, his availability for Week 5 has to be considered questionable at this point. Monitor his progress, but make other short-, and potentially long-term arrangements.

Tre'Quan Smith Note

Smith should be the primary beneficiary of Michael Thomas's high ankle sprain. Fantasy managers have been waiting for years for Smith to become a reliable option and this is his best chance to do so. If he's available on waivers, add him everywhere, but wait to see how the New Orleans offense plays out before starting him immediately.
