Meredith should take over this week as the Saints' WR2. TE Ben Watson could also see a couple more targets. Both are fringe fantasy options, as Alvin Kamara and Thomas have dominated the passing volume in this offense. Rookie WR Tre'Quan Smith is another potential beneficiary of Ginn's absence.
As expected, Ted Ginn and Tre'Quan Smith nearly split the work opposite Michael Thomas. Ginn played 49 snaps, Smith played 42. But it was Ginn who outshined Smith in Week 1 with 101 yards on seven catches (on seven targets, third-most behind Thomas and Kamara). Ginn has the slight edge for WR2 duties in New Orleans, but as long as he is sharing time with Smith, as well as being behind Thomas, Alvin Kamara and perhaps Jared Cook (though Cook only saw three targets in Week 1) in the pecking order, Ginn is nothing more than a WR5 in fantasy.
