Curtis Lofton led the Saints with 11 total tackles (nine solo) in their 38-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

Lofton racked up tackles in part because DeMarco Murray was racking up rushing yards. The Saints looked completely overmatched in this game, though it is difficult to fault Lofton for that.

Kenny Vaccaro had seven solo tackles, including the Saints' lone sack as New Orleans fell to the Cowboys 38-17 Sunday.

The Saints defense does not look nearly as good as it did last season, though Kenny Vaccaro continues to play well.

Travaris Cadet caught all six of his targets for 59 yards and added one carry for one yard in the Saints' 38-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday. Cadet also lost a fumble.

Cadet caught more passes out of the backfield than Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson combined. This was probably just an aberration, and even if it wasn't, Cadet is unlikely to play once Mark Ingram is active.

Cooks caught five of his six targets Sunday for 31 yards as the Saints lost to the Cowboys 38-17

Cooks has had a couple of good games, but there is little reason to think he will become a consistent fantasy contributor this season.

Kenny Stills caught two passes on three targets for 62 yards in the Saints' 38-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

Stills's big-play-ability is second-to-none, but Drew Brees just does not throw his way often enough to make Stills a viable fantasy option.

Marques Colston matched his season-high with five receptions on 10 targets for 50 yards Sunday in the Saints' 38-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Five of Drew Brees's seven passing touchdowns this season have gone to tight ends. If that trend continues it will be a long season for Colston's fantasy owners.

Jimmy Graham had 86 yards on eight receptions—including a 13-yard touchdown—in the Saints’ 38-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

The rest of the New Orleans offense may be struggling a bit, but Jimmy Graham is as good as ever.

Shayne Graham made a 30-yard field goal but missed a 41-yard attempt in the Saints' 38-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday. He was 2-for-2 on extra points.

The Saints offense has not been great so far, and Graham has suffered as much as anyone. If Graham does not do better Week 5 it will be time for fantasy players to drop him.

Pierre Thomas caught both of his targets for 15 yards and also had two rushes for eight yards as the Saints fell to the Cowboys 38-17.

Thomas was largely replaced in the passing game by Travaris Cadet. Thomas has just 195 total yards in four games. Better days are ahead for the Saints offense, but it will be difficult to trust Thomas until he has a good game or two.

Khiry Robinson led the Saints with 87 rushing yards on just eight attempts while also catching two passes on three targets for 18 yards as the Saints lost to the Cowboys 38-17.

62 of Robinson's yards came on one run. His carries were limited as the Saints fell behind early. Robinson is still getting most of the carries, and he has a great matchup at home against the Buccaneers Week 5.
