NFC South

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, WR Michael Thomas has agreed with the New Orleans Saints on a restructured deal, essentially giving Thomas a one-year, incentive-based deal. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: According to Adam Schefter, the deal is worth $10 million with a value of up to $15 million as the Saints aim to retain the former Offensive Player of the Year. Thomas’ cap hit has been a key topic of discussion when regarding Thomas’ future in New Orleans, and the Saints are making an effort to keep him around to pair with new QB Derek Carr. Thomas has played 10 games over the last three seasons.

Fantasy Impact: Winston will back up newly-acquired Derek Carr for New Orleans QB duties. In three injury-marred years with the team, the 29-year-old has appeared in 14 games, throwing 2,103 yards, 18 TD, and eight interceptions. He was also sacked 24 times.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the Atlanta Falcons are signing DT David Onyemata to a three-year, $35-million deal. (Source: Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Onyemata will pair alongside DT Grady Jarrett to plug up the middle of Atlanta's defense. Onyemata had a down year in 2022 and missed time due to a PED-related suspension, but the athletic interior defender is a solid pass rusher and adds to a Falcons d-line that lacked production in 2022.

According to David Charns of, New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara has been indicted by a grand jury on charges of conspiracy to commit battery and battery resulting in substantial bodily harm for an incident from the Pro Bowl in 2022. (Source: David Charns,

Fantasy Impact: The NFL has withheld on any level of punishment for the 2022 Las Vegas incident involving Kamara until it went through the legal system. The system is not yet done with the case and will continue through the district court with a date set for March 2. Kamara played the entire 2022-23 season, and any punishment for the event could be determined over the offseason.

Adam Trautman caught his lone target for 16 yards in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Trautman continues to see limited targets as the backup to Juwan Johnson. Fantasy managers with games in Week 18 can feel comfortable dropping Trautman.

Rashid Shaheed caught all six of his targets for 79 yards in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Shaheed led the Saints in receptions and receiving yards Sunday. The bulk of Shaheed’s yards came on a 58 yard reception from Andy Dalton. The rookie wide receiver and the Saints will take on the Panthers in Week 18.

Chris Olave caught four of his five targets for 42 yards in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Olave came into the game with a questionable designation due to a hamstring injury. The 22-year-old still turned in a solid performance for fantasy managers considering the limited passing by the Saints’ offense. Olave and the Saints will take on the Panthers in Week 18.

Andy Dalton completed 18 of his 22 pass attempts for 204 yards and one interception in a 20-10 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Dalton was able to spread the ball around and avoid any major mistakes, outside of the one interception, to help the Saints get their seventh win of the season. Dalton figures to start the final week of the season win the Saints take on the Panthers in Week 18.

Marshon Lattimore is active for the Saints' game on the road against the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: Lattimore will have his hands full with the Philadelphia receiving corps. His presence does help the New Orleans secondary, though.

Fantasy Impact: Washington has been dealing with a series of migraines and hasn't even been able to practice over the last three weeks. David Johnson and Taysom Hill will continue to rotate in at running back behind Alvin Kamara.

Keith Kirkwood was held without a catch on two targets in a 17-10 win over the Browns Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Kirkwood was active for just the third time this season. The 28-year-old has just two receptions on the season and can be safely left on the waiver wire.

David Johnson tallied 16 rushing yards on seven carries and caught his lone targets for eight yards in a Week 16 win over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson continues to operate as the backup to Alvin Kamara in a struggling Saints’ offense. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable leaving Johnson on the waiver wire in Week 17.

Jarvis Landry (ankle) has been placed on the team's injured reserve, ending his season. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: An ankle injury has hindered much of Landry's season with the Saints, and he will be placed on IR because of it. His season is effectively over, and he is set to become a free agent in March. Tre'Quan Smith and Rashid Shaheed will have to continue to play a larger role in this offense with the veteran out for the season.

Mark Ingram II was placed on injured reserve after suffering an MCL tear, ending his season. (Source: Field Yates on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ingram suffered the injury in Week 13, and the recovery for a torn MCL is usually 4-to-6 weeks. So, this move just confirmed the already-known fact that the veteran's season was over. For the rest of the year, Eno Benjamin could serve as the primary backup behind Alvin Kamara after he was claimed off waivers.

Marquez Callaway failed to catch his lone target in the Saints' 17-16 Week 13 loss to the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact: Callaway was an absolute afterthought for the Saints offense Monday night, finishing last on the team in targets on a night in which the passing attack was unable to get much going. The wideout has failed to make much of an impact on a consistent basis as part of an injury-ravaged pass-catching group and cannot be trusted coming out of the team's Week 14 bye against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15.

New Orleans Saints linebacker Pete Werner is inactive for Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. (Source: Nick Underhill on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Werner was back at practice this week, albeit in a limited fashion, so there was some hope that he would be able to make his return tonight. Werner has been an LB1 option when healthy. Kaden Elliss will get another start in his place and offers LB1 upside. Elliss has been an IDP stud with Werner sidelined and should continue to roll on Monday night.
