Your Saints’ sleepers

Fantasy-wise, the vast majority of contributors are taken on the offensive side of the ball.

However, in league’s with team defenses as an option, expect New Orleans to be among the top ten. Fake Teams, SB Nation’s blog for fantasy football advice, ranked the Saints defense No. 10 in the league, meaning they should be good enough to draw some eyes in a 12-team league.

Other than their defense, the Saints have a handful of receivers that could break out as the team’s second option out wide.

Players like Tre’Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, and Lil’Jordan Humphrey will all have a chance to make their presence known alongside Michael Thomas. That player, assuming one of the pack breaks out as the team’s trusted No. 2, will be the only one worthy enough to be on any fantasy roster.

Lastly, Latavius Murray may be a late-round flier as well. After all, the Saints used Mark Ingram enough the last few seasons to have him crack most fantasy rosters. Why not take a shot on Murray as well?
