Teddy Bridgewater Unlikely To Leave Saints

New Orleans Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who will be an unrestricted free agent in March, will be tough to pry away from the Saints, even if Drew Brees returns for another season. It would likely take a good team that isn't expected to draft a quarterback in the upcoming draft. The Dolphins could be a fit, but that's only if they could convince Bridgewater that they want to build around him and use their three first-round picks at other positions. Bridgewater went 5-0 in place of an injured Brees in 2019 and is on record saying that he thinks New Orleans is the perfect fit for him. As long as Brees sticks around and stays healthy, though, Bridgewater will have no fantasy value in the Big Easy.

Drew Brees Struggles In Loss To Vikings

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 26 of 33 passes for 208 yards, one touchdown, one interception, and a fumble in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. It was a dismal day for Brees and the Saints offense, as he averaged his lowest yards per attempt since his Thanksgiving Day dud against the Falcons- and looked uncomfortable for much of the game. Minnesota's pass rush certainly had something to do with this. Brees also picked the worst time to lose his first fumble of the season- with 4:18 left in the game and the Saints driving to try to tie or win the game. Still, Brees ended up with 27 touchdowns to just four interceptions this year, after missing five games. A free agent with his 41st birthday approaching, it's likely Brees will be back in New Orleans with an even bigger chip on his shoulder in 2020.

Alvin Kamara Struggles Overall, Scores For Third Straight Game

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara carried the ball seven times for 21 yards and a touchdown and caught eight of nine targets for 34 yards in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He struggled in this one, capping off a disappointing season for both he and the Saints, though he did score for the third straight game. Despite frustrating his fantasy owners for much of 2019, Kamara still finished with 797 rushing yards on 171 totes along with five touchdowns and 81 catches for 533 yards with one score. Injuries, ineffectiveness, and fumbles played a part in making his season less-than-stellar. With Drew Brees only getting older, the Saints may gradually ease into a more run-heavy approach in 2020. Kamara is a prime bounce-back candidate for next year and should still be among the first players taken in all drafts.

Latavius Murray Held To 25 Scrimmage Yards In Loss

New Orleans Saints running back Latavius Murray picked up 21 rushing yards on five carries and caught one of two targets for four yards in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Murray finishes his season with a disappointing effort, though it ended up being a pretty good year for the 29-year-old. He enjoyed two games as the starter with Alvin Kamara injured, as he proceeded to explode for over 150 scrimmage yards in both games. For the year, Murray posted a career-high 4.4 yards per carry and scored at least five times for the fifth straight year. He and Kamara could potentially benefit from a more run-heavy approach in 2020, as Drew Brees nears his 41st birthday.

Michael Thomas Catches Seven Passes In Playoff Loss

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas caught seven of eight targets for 70 yards in a 26-20 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Though he didn't play badly, the playoff loss is a disappointing end to a historic season for Thomas. The All-Pro set the NFL record for receptions with 149, posted the seventh-most receiving yards in a single season in NFL history, and matched his career-high with nine receiving touchdowns. It's scary to think that Thomas is still only four years into his career- there's room for him to get even better. His dominant 2019 should leave no doubt that he should be the first receiver taken in all draft formats, especially PPR.
