  • Jon Gruden Helping Saints, Derek Carr Install Offense

    The New Orleans Saints have brought in former Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden to help quarterback Derek Carr and the offensive coaching staff install their new offense under head coach Dennis Allen. Since being drafted in the second round in 2014, Carr had spent his entire career with the Raiders. Carr and Gruden ran the West Coast offense from 2018 through 2021, which is similar to the one the Saints employ. The Saints signed Carr this offseason primarily because of his familiarity with the offensive scheme, so it should allow him to hit the ground running sooner than later in 2023. The 32-year-old QB made his fourth Pro Bowl in 2022 but completed just 60.8% of his passes for 3,522 yards, 24 TDs and 14 interceptions in 15 starts. In his first year in the Big Easy, he should be viewed as a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

  • Juwan Johnson Looks To Be Go-To Guy For Derek Carr

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson said he asked the Saints to put together film of Julian Edelman from his time in New England, signifying he could be used primarily as a slot receiver/tight end hybrid in 2023. "I know the type of role I'll be doing, and (Derek Carr) loves those routes," said Johnson. "(Edelman) is one of the best at those choice routes, short-game routes." This will be an interesting development to follow since Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had a ton of success in a similar role in 2021. Johnson was a wide receiver in college and is on the light side for a tight end (230 lbs). In 2022, he posted the seventh-most slot snaps (185) among tight ends, so it's not a dramatic change. It appears he will be a move tight end while Foster Moreau serves as more of a traditional tight end.
