The Saints reportedly believe defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley has a torn quad.

Bunkley was injured during Monday's loss to the Ravens. It was apparently never a consideration that he would be able to return to the game and the initial diagnosis of a torn quad remains in play. He'll have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity, but the team already believes that it is going to end his season.

Shayne Graham was 2-for-2 on field goals and successfully converted all three extra-points during Monday's loss to the Ravens.

After posting six points or less in each of his last three games, Graham fell just one point shy of reaching double-digits for the first time this month. Considering most fantasy teams caring only one kicker, there is no reason Graham should be owned at this point in the season now that the bye-weeks have come and gone, despite connecting on 17 of his first 18 field goal attempts this season.

Jimmy Graham caught six passes on10 targets for 47 yards and two touchdowns during the Saints' 34-27 loss to the Ravens on Monday.

Graham logged his second two-touchdown performance in his last three games as he now sits with 65 receptions for 670 yards and nine scores on the season. Although he is trailing Julius Thomas by three touchdowns for the league lead among tight ends, Graham remains arguably the top option at his position considering he is practically matchup proof in the red zone.

Joseph Morgan caught one pass for 62 yards and rushed the ball once for 67 yards during Monday's loss to the Ravens.

Morgan recorded just his second catch of the season on Monday night while adding a 67-yard run, which gave him a career-high 129 total yards. However, until we see him utilized more in the Saints offense there is no reason to run to the waiver wire to add his services this week as he strictly remains a wild card in all fantasy formats.

Marqes Colston caught all four passes thrown his way for 82 yards and a touchdown during the Saints' 34-27 loss to the Ravens on Monday.

Despite only receiving four targets, Colston was able to make a mark in Monday night's game as he converted all four of the passes thrown his way for 82 yards and one touchdown. Up to this point Colston has been far from a fantasy stud, but with Brandin Cooks out of the picture he may start to be utilized more in longer yardage situations which makes him a solid play in deep league formats as we inch closer to the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Stills caught eight passes on nine targets for 98 yards during the Saints' loss to the Ravens on Monday.

Stills made the most of his increased snaps in Week 12 as he set season-highs in both targets (9) and receptions (8) in the Saints loss to the Ravens. Although he has been rather inconsistent thus far in 2014, Stills owners should continue to receive quality production from the Saints speedster now that Brandin Cooks is out of action.

Pierre Thomas returned to the field and carried the ball five times for 19 yards and caught six passes on eight targets for 37 yards against the Ravens on Monday.

Monday night marked the first time since Week 7 Thomas was active after the Saints running back suffered from a shoulder injury for over the last month of the season. Although he received only five carries, Thomas was targeted eight times in the Saints passing game, which was the third highest total on the team. He will likely be used in the same capacity as the season progresses, which gives him PPR value at the very least.

Mark Ingram carried the ball 11 times for just 27 yards and caught two passes for 15 yards during the Saints' 34-27 loss to the Ravens on Monday.

With Pierre Thomas returning from a shoulder injury in Week 12, Ingram's snaps were limited which resulted in a very unproductive night as he averaged only 2.5 yards per carry. However, Ingram is still viewed at the team's top running back and with a favorable schedule ahead, he should still be considered a solid start in deep league formats the rest of the way.

Drew Brees completed 35-of-45 passes for 420 yards with three touchdowns and one interception during the Saints' 34-27 loss to the Ravens on Monday.

Statistically, Brees provided his fantasy owners with his best game of the season on Monday night as he completed 77.8 percent of his passes while throwing for a season-high 420 yards and three touchdowns. With a favorable schedule ahead, fantasy owners can expect similar results from Brees moving forward which is great timing considering the fantasy playoffs are right around the corner.

Saints NT Broderick Bunkley (leg) is out for the remainder of Monday's game.

Bunkley was down on the field for a substantial amount of time and this news doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Saints will look to John Jenkins during Bunkley's absence.
