The questions about the 2022-23 roster are far different than they were this time a year ago.

We already know the order of the quarterback depth chart, who is lining up at wide receiver, and there is an obvious No. 2 cornerback this year — maybe even three of them.

The battles this season will be waged a little further down the depth chart, reflecting the elevated talent level on this roster.

Here’s an early look at who appears to be in line to make the team following organized team activities and minicamp:

Quarterbacks (3)

1.
Jameis Winston

“To protect and serve” is a well-known motto adopted by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1963 that has been used by military and police units nationwide.

The words also may apply to New Orleans Saints offensive lineman James Hurst.

Entering his third campaign in New Orleans and his ninth overall in the NFL, Hurst is assigned to protect Saints quarterbacks and serve anywhere necessary along the offensive line.

In 2021, he was second on the team with 941 offensive snaps with 15 starts. Hurst graded 12th in the league with a 69.8 mark by Pro Football Focus among all NFL offensive tackles, drawing only four flags while only allowing three sacks.

Hurst has been plugged in all spots along the offensive line except at center, but for the 30-year old veteran seems to fit the crucial left tackle role like a comfortable pair of shoes. ...

Locked on Saints with Ross Jackson

New Orleans Saints and Demario Davis land on contract extension to keep the star linebacker in the Big Easy through 2024. Why the deal is important, why it got done now, and what it says about Dennis Allen, Mickey Loomis, and the Saints organization's belief in the team's future. Keeping leaders like Davis, Jameis Winston, Cameron Jordan, Michael Thomas, Marshon Lattimore, and others while adding vets like Tyrann Mathieu and Jarvis Landry has been a huge success for New Orleans this offseason.

2022 Saints Training Camp Preview: Offensive Line

The New Orleans Saints had one of the NFL's most dominant offensive lines entering the 2021 season. Over the previous four years, they had consistently bullied opposing defenses for one of the league's most balanced offensive attacks. They had allowed among the fewest sacks in the league and were the catalyst of a top-7 rushing attack that ranked first or second in touchdowns all four seasons.

Injuries decimated this formidable unit in 2021. Four starters missed a combined total of 35 games. Their starting five was together for a mere 22 snaps all season. Depth, which was a strength of...

Michael Thomas set for comeback season

It seems like a lifetime ago when Michael Thomas set NFL records and became the 2019 offensive player of the year. He would end that season with 1,725 yards and 9 touchdowns. Since then, Thomas has sort of gone ghost after spending a majority of the 2020 season on the bench due to injury and not even seeing the field for the duration of the 2021 season.

All of that seems to be ancient history now as Thomas looks set for a return at a time when the New Orleans Saints need him the most.

If you followed the Saints during the previous season, you understand that there was a severe lack in...

Saints Fantasy Football 2022 Outlook: RB Alvin Kamara

Kamara has been a consistent Top-5 PPR running back in fantasy football, but his 2022 fantasy value is cloudy due the possibility of receiving a suspension from the NFL.

In 2020, Kamara led all running backs in PPR scoring, edging out Dalvin Cook and Derrick Henry thanks to a six-touchdown performance on Christmas Day against the Minnesota Vikings. Kamara’s historic performance cemented a victory for owners in numerous fantasy football leagues.

His versatility and nose for the endzone made him the number one running back in fantasy heading into 2021. And though he did not put up the...

Prior to the 2020 NFL season, New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas was among the most productive wideouts in NFL history. A second-round choice in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, Thomas had set league records for productivity over a player's first four seasons.

Thomas had at least 92 receptions and over 1,100 yards in each of his first four years, with catch totals and yardage increasing over each of those seasons. He led the NFL with a career-high 1,725 yards in 2019, breaking his own franchise record. In the process, he also broke a 17-year NFL record with 149 receptions.

No one knows what is going to happen to Alvin Kamara this offseason. Not Alvin Kamara, not Pro Football Talk, and likely not even the New Orleans Saints.

All that is known at this time is that Kamara’s offseason incident could result in a suspension for the 2022 season for an amount of games still to be determined. However, this uncertainty leaves the Saints with a question mark at the running back position. What if Alvin Kamara is indeed suspended for a large chunk of the 2022 season? Can the Saints really rely on 32-year-old Mark Ingram to carry the workload in what many hope to be a...

Matt: This is going to be such an entertaining game in my opinion.

A big question I have: how will jetlag affect these two teams?

For the New Orleans Saints, you have a young, high-powered offense and an elite defense. Not to mention starting the season 2-1. You’ve got confidence in this group that has a history of success in London.

But then there’s Minnesota.

Kirk Cousins is a heavily overrated quarterback, but when you add in weapons like Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen, and Justin Jefferson and you have something.

This is going to be a very high-scoring affair with star-studded...
