Steve Breaston could be Saints No. 3 receiver; fantasy value rising

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Steve Breaston could end up as the No. 3 wide receiver this season in New Orleans. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Steve Breaston is getting his chance to be the team's No. 3 option. Breaston tells the New Orleans Times-Picayune that he's in a "blessed situation" with the Saints and now has to take advantage of the opportunity so he can stay in New Orleans.

Breaston moved up the depth chart after it was learned this week that Joe Morgan would miss the rest of the season because of an ACL injury. Breaston was released by the Kansas City Chiefs in February.

Fantasy Impact: Breaston was on fantasy radars several seasons ago but has dropped in part because of injuries. He isn't as fast as Morgan but fantasy owners in deep leagues looking for a late-round flyer on Draft Day should keep Breaston in mind just in case he starts to become a regular part of the offense.

Breaston has talent but Drew Brees has other strong options in the passing game, so keep expectations low.
