Ginn caught all six of his targets for 87 yards in Sunday's comeback win against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

A week after catching just one pass in a blowout victory in Buffalo -- a game in which Drew Brees attempted only 25 passes -- Ginn was much more involved in Week 11, as the Saints were trailing for most of the game. Ginn has been surprisingly solid in his first season in New Orleans, but he's caught more than four passes just twice all year and has historically been a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity. The speedy wide out is worth rostering in nearly all leagues but Ginn is still just the No. 2 receiver on an offense that has become more run-oriented than in years past.

Ginn caught one pass on one target for three yards in Sunday's win against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn entered the year with a well-established reputation as a boom-or-bust fantasy commodity but he has been a relatively consistent option in his first season in New Orleans. However, just as many fantasy owners were beginning to trust in Ginn as an every-week play, the former Buckeye cratered in a disastrous Week 10 performance. Drew Brees likely won't attempt a mere 25 passes most weeks -- his fewest in a game in 2009 -- but Sunday's outing should serve as a reminder to owners that lean weeks remain a distinct possibility for the No. 2 receiver in Saints' spread-the-wealth offense.

Ginn hauled in four of five targets for 59 yards and a touchdown, gained 21 yards on two kickoff returns and lost five yards on two punt returns in Sunday's 30-10 win over the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn hauled in a 36-yard scoring throw from Drew Brees in the third quarter to close out the Saints' scoring on the day. The 11-year veteran has mostly lived up to his big-play reputation since arriving in New Orleans, posting a 17.1 YPC and already logging nine receptions of more than 20 yards -- matching his 2016 figure in that category -- including four over 40. Ginn will look to continue the productive start to his Saints tenure versus the Bills in Week 10.

Ginn caught two of four passes for 68 yards in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

The highlight of Ginn's day was a 53-yard reception in the fourth quarter. The veteran speedster has reaped the benefits of playing with one of the league's most effective deep-ball throwers in Drew Brees, hauling in a reception of 40-plus yards in three of the past five games.

Ginn brought in all seven of his targets for 141 yards and logged one punt return for seven yards in Sunday's 26-17 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

With Willie Snead (hamstring) sitting, Ginn played the role of downfield threat he's proven highly capable of in the past, establishing season bests in receptions and receiving yards in the process. The 32-year-old also notched a season-long 47-yard catch and has gotten his Saints tenure off to a strong start overall, producing a 22-353-2 line over his first six contests. He could be in for another expanded role in Week 8 versus the Bears if Snead is unable to suit up.

Ginn nabbed all four targets that came his way for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 52-38 win over Detroit. He added a three-yard run during the contest.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn helped put New Orleans up for good late in the first quarter with a 20-yard touchdown reception. It was, from a yardage perspective, the best game of Ginn's short tenure with the Saints, but his future is a little murky. The veteran speedster has not caught more than four passes thus far this season and now potentially faces increased competition from pass-catching rookie back Alvin Kamara and the reinstated Willie Snead who, while catchless on Sunday, averaged 6.9 targets per game in 2016.

Ginn rushed once for nine yards, brought in both of his targets for 25 yards and tallied 26 yards on three punt returns in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Dolphins in London.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn turned in a serviceable performance with the few opportunities he saw against his original NFL team, but he was a distant third option in the passing game to Michael Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara. The veteran speedster hasn't logged more than four receptions over the first four contests, and he could see his involvement take a hit when Willie Snead (hamstring) finally makes his way onto the field. Despite his complementary role, Ginn remains a viable option in deeper formats, particularly those that also factor in return yards. He'll look for his first explosive effort in a Saints uniform when New Orleans tangles with the Lions following a Week 5 bye.

Ginn caught two of his three targets for 44 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers. He also gained 15 yards on his lone carry of the 34-13 win.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn made his money with one big play in this one, hauling in a 40-yard touchdown pass on the first drive of the second half. The veteran wasn't heavily targeted, but his role in the offense is likely to revolve around big gains this season, rather than sheer volume. It was good to see Ginn come through with a splash play, but he remains a boom-or-bust fantasy option next week against the Dolphins.

Ginn had three receptions on six targets for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He also had one punt return for 16 yards.

EDGE Analysis

After a solid Week 1 performance, Ginn fell flat in his first game in the Superdome donning the gold and black. With Willie Snead still suspended, Ginn actually ceded playing time to Brandon Coleman, who saw 58 offensive snaps (89 percent) compared to Ginn's 43 snaps. Ginn did not always appear to be on the same page as quarterback Drew Brees -- which may explain the reduced playing time. One play in particular stands out. Down 27-13 and driving late in the second quarter, Brees threw a deep ball on fourth down to Ginn, who had beaten his man by a few steps. The catchable pass was thrown to the outside shoulder, but Ginn failed to adjust to it and it fell incomplete, leaving Brees visibly frustrated. While Ginn will likely make some big plays as the season wears on and he gets on the same page as his new quarterback, the speedy receiver has been an inconsistent fantasy option throughout his career and that trend appears likely to continue in New Orleans.

Ginn caught four of five passes for 54 yards in Monday night's loss to the Vikings. He also gained five yards on one carry.

EDGE Analysis

Ginn's Saints debut was solid albeit unspectacular, even with Willie Snead serving the first a three-game suspension. With Snead sidelined for another two games, Ginn could see an uptick in production, but Drew Brees' penchant for spreading the ball around -- he connected with seven different receivers on Monday -- makes Ginn a risky starting option in most settings, especially given the former Panthers' boom-or-bust tendencies.
