Kenny Stills gifts fantasy owners with two touchdowns

Chris Graythen

The Saints rookie had a huge game Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints rookie wide receiver Kenny Stills tripled his career touchdown total Sunday. The rookie scored two different long touchdowns as the Saints beat the Buffalo Bills, 35-17.

Stills had only three receptions, but went for 129 yards. He caught touchdown passes of 69 and 42 yards in the game. Wide receiver Lance Moore, playing his first game in more than a month, went for only 34 yards on three catches, but caught a 15-yard touchdown pass to kick off the game's scoring.

The team's presumed No. 1 receiver, Marques Colston, had his third straight quiet game Sunday. Colston caught only three passes for 18 yards, and now has only 44 yards total in his last three games.

Fantasy impact: Moore, back from injury, and Stills, still establishing his bona fides as an NFL player, are both moving into the regular rotation of Saints receivers. In the long run, that means that any individual Saint pass-catcher could have a big game, but it's going to be exceedingly difficult to predict which guy at any given time.

Despite his weak performance of late, Colston still should be considered the team's No. 1 receiver, but Stills and Moore (and pass-catching running back Darren Sproles) are all basically 1(a). Any of the three wide receivers would be a perfectly acceptable WR3/flex option, with Colston possibly still being a viable WR2, but not a definite one.
