Saints add kicker Dustin Hopkins to practice squad - [Full Article]

The New Orleans Saints have added a second kicker and stowed him on the practice squad, an unusual move that raises questions about the future of starter Shayne Graham.

The Saints signed Dustin Hopkins and placed him on their 10-man practice squad on Wednesday. That could mean the Saints are considering Hopkins as an active-roster option in the final two games of 2014 or are giving him an extended tryout with an eye toward 2015.

Fantasy Impact: 

This doesn't have significant fantasy impact, but Graham owners should be aware that his job may be in jeopardy. It wouldn't be shocking if the Saints decided to use Hopkins as their kicker as soon as Week 16.
