Allen Lazard caught 6-of-8 targets for 146 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Saints.
Lazard got behind the Saints defense for a 40-plus yard catch in the second quarter. His touchdown came later that drive on a play-action pass from Aaron Rodgers. The Saints left him wide open again for a 72-yard catch in the second half, but he was tackled at the three-yard line. Lazard’s expanded role came with Davante Adams out, but he had fewer targets than Marques Valdes-Scantling going into Sunday night. Lazard has a streamable matchup with the Falcons in Week 4 if Adams misses another game.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 1-of-4 targets for five yards in Week 3 against the Saints.
He was held without a catch in the first half. Valdes-Scantling played in two-wide sets with Davante Adams sidelined, but this ended up his worst game. Allen Lazard (6/146/1) was featured over Valdes-Scantling, though his four targets were still tied for third on the team. Valdes-Scantling will try to rebound in a potential Week 4 shootout with the Falcons.

Tre'Quan Smith caught 4-of-6 targets for 42 yards in Week 3 against the Packers.
Smith’s six targets were behind only Alvin Kamara. He’s had an expanded role the last two weeks, but it hasn’t led to much fantasy production. Smith gets a matchup with the Lions in Week 4.

Emmanuel Sanders caught 4-of-5 targets for 56 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Packers.
Sanders went untargeted until Drew Brees hit him on a 10-yard touchdown on the Saints' final play of the first half. He ended up leading the Saints’ receivers in yards but finished well behind Alvin Kamara (13/139/2). Sanders scored this week, but he hasn’t made much of an impact despite Michael Thomas missing time. His target share would take a hit if Thomas returns in Week 4.

Aaron Jones had 16 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' Week 3 win over the Saints.
It was a step back after Jones went off for 168 yards and three touchdowns last week. Jones managed to save his night with a one-yard goal-line conversion, but he wasn't used much in the pass game, making just two catches for 17 yards on four targets. Jones should see a heavy workload for a Week 4 matchup with the Falcons.

Latavius Murray had 12 carries for 58 yards in Week 3 against the Packers.
The Saints went run heavy early, where Murray got eight of his 12 carries. He faded in the second half, but this is the second time in the first three weeks he's out-rushed Alvin Kamara. Murray's role figures to be scaled back if the Saints get Michael Thomas back next week.

Alvin Kamara rushed six times for 58 yards and caught 13-of-14 targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Week 3 loss to the Packers.
Kamara was the entire offense for the Saints, though he got out-carried by Latavius Murray (12). His 14 targets were a team high, more than double the looks for Tre'Quan Smith (6) and Emmanuel Sanders (5). Kamara had one of the plays of the year when he turned a check down into a highlight 52-yard touchdown where he got behind his blocks and reversed the field. The Saints could get Michael Thomas back next week, potentially cutting into Kamara's pass-game role. Kamara will remain a top-three fantasy back for a Week 4 matchup with the Lions.

Drew Brees completed 21-of-32 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns in Week 3 against the Packers.
The Saints ran a conservative offense in the first half, with Brees only throwing two passes 10 or more yards. They opened it up in the second, but Brees was outdueled in a shootout with Aaron Rodgers. Despite the loss, this was one of Brees' better games after he was held to 160 yards in the opener and had just one touchdown last week. Brees could get Michael Thomas (ankle) back for a Week 4 matchup against Detroit.
