Harris is the most notable name. He is an 11-year veteran who, earlier in his career, accumulated a first-team All-Pro nod and four Pro Bowl appearances with the Denver Broncos. ...

Derry’s Week 5 NFL Picks: Saints ‘must win’ vs. Seahawks; Texans shock Jaguars, sharps?

Four games into the season, and we now have a fair sample size of what teams really are. If a team is ranked 30th in defense heading into the second week of October, they’re probably not going to jump into the top half this season.

Conversely, if a team has been a surprise on the offensive side of the ball and is ranked significantly higher than where one might have expected, barring injury, a bettor needs to adjust their predictions.

At the same time, linesmakers already have begun to adjust (and overcorrect). Hence, I find some of the best values on the board to come this time of year...

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints have committed the most turnovers and second most penalties in the NFL in 2022, and their special teams rank last by Football Outsiders advanced stats if you are so inclined to prefer complicated math with your football. The Saints have been nothing short of a debacle in 2022.

If you told me the above paragraph was going to happen to the Saints the opening month of the season, I'd probably have wished for a time machine to travel back to the spring and steal Saints GM Mickey Loomis' cellphone when he was trading away the Saints 2023 first round pick to...

Better yet, Kamara said he is feeling good and plans to play Sunday against the Seahawks.


“It’s a weird injur. There’s nothing really you can do for it. It’s one of those things you’ve got to kind of be easy with, and one morning you wake up, and it’s feeling terrible.

If a few words on a Wednesday afternoon mean anything, the New Orleans Saints should be able to count on Alvin Kamara to be there when they line up against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday in the Superdome.

“Last week was kind of up in the air and didn’t go,” Kamara said. “This week I’m feeling great, healthy, ready to roll. So I’m going to be out there.”

Kamara’s presence would be a huge boon for a reeling Saints club that has lost three consecutive games, two of which Kamara viewed from the sidelines while protecting his injured ribs.

According to Bills pass-rusher Von Miller, Odell Beckham Jr. is going to visit the Saints. Miller told ESPN's Alaina Getzenberg on Wednesday that Beckham Jr. is going on a tour now, which includes the Giants and Buccaneers in addition to New Orleans.

Miller said that he talks to him every week and has talked about the fit in Buffalo, but that he should go around and see the league and get the love. It's unclear as to when this visit may occur, but worth noting that Beckham Jr. was in attendance for the Bucs-Saints game in Week 2.

Suppose someone asked you a month ago to predict who the New Orleans Saints’ offensive and defensive Most Valuable Players would be this season.

Chances are, you would have rattled off names such as Alvin Kamara, Jameis Winston or Michael Thomas for the former, and Demario Davis, Cam Jordan or Marshon Lattimore for the latter.

But here we are four games into the season and it’s none of the above.

Instead, the MVPs of the Saints so far have been a pair of young, but talented, players who have combined to play just 23 NFL games in their fledgling careers.

That’s 19 games for second-year...
