New Orleans Saints fans who play fantasy football and rely on their favorite players for production are in luck —receiver Lance Moore is set to return to the team this week for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Moore has missed quite some time this season with a hand injury, but as Stephania Bell of ESPN details, all signs point to Moore being back in action and production from a fantasy standpoint:

"Moore has been out with an unspecified hand injury since Week 3, but he returned to a full workload in practice Wednesday, following it up with another full practice session Thursday. Per Triplett, Moore says the hand “feels good,” and that he’s “not really thinking about it at all” while out practicing. Those are positive signs pointing toward Moore returning for Sunday’s game. Moore has had a very quiet start to the season, but if Graham is forced to sit because of the foot injury, the Saints will be happy to have another pair of sure hands back in the mix."

This is especially good news for Jimmy Graham owners who happen to own Moore or can pick him up. Keep in mind it’s bad news for owners who have relied on rookie Kenny Stills for production.

There are only so many balls to go around in New Orleans, and as we have seen in the past, More and Drew Brees have a great connection. Be sure to capitalize on it this week in fantasy football.
