Joe Morgan listed as starter on Saints initial depth chart, fantasy value remains low

USA TODAY Sports

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan is listed as a starter on the team's depth chart while Marques Colston recovers from a foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

It may be short lived but wide receiver Joe Morgan is listed as a starter (via ESPN.com) on the New Orleans Saints depth chart while veteran Marques Colston remains out with a foot injury. Colston has missed all of training camp and Morgan's inclusion as a starter on the initial depth chart means he will likely be the team's No. 3 wide receiver this season behind Colston and Lance Moore.

Morgan finished last season with 10 catches for 379 yards and three touchdowns and has a chance for a boost in production now that Devery Henderson is no longer in New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact: It's never a bad idea for fantasy owners to know who plays wide receiver for the Saints. Morgan probably isn't worth a draft pick at this point, but he could have some value later in the season if there's an injury or the New Orleans pass attack really starts to click.

Morgan's value will depend on how healthy Colston is heading into Week 1 of the season.
