Emmanuel Sanders caught 6-of-9 targets for 48 yards in the Saints' Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
Sanders led the Saints in targets and catches. Signed to a two-year deal in the offseason, Sanders' first season in New Orleans produced a 61-726-5 line on 82 targets across 14 games. He was signed to be the No. 2 wideout, but Michael Thomas missed nine games during the year, leaving Sanders to pick up the slack. Turning 34 this offseason, Sanders doesn't have a whole lot left in the tank. He carries a $10 million cap hit in 2021, and the Saints will take on a $6 million dead money hit if he's not designated a post-June 1 cut. Obviously, Sanders could be brought back for the second year of his deal, too, but the Saints need to upgrade their wideout group behind Thomas.

Antonio Brown caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Bucs' Divisional Round win over the Saints.
Brown wasn't targeted in the second half as he stood on the sideline with what appeared to be an injury. It was Scotty Miller and Tyler Johnson soaking up snaps behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Brown will have the week to get ready for next Sunday's NFC title game against the Packers.

Tre'Quan Smith caught all three of his targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Saints' Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
He caught a 56-yard score on a flea-flicker trick play from Jameis Winston before then making an incredible adjustment for a second score at the front right pylon on Drew Brees' lone touchdown pass of the game. Smith led the Saints in receiving. During the regular season, Smith posted a 34-448-4 line on 50 targets, setting new highs in targets, catches, and yards as the Saints' third wideout. A big-play receiver, maybe Smith will get more of a chance in 2021 if Emmanuel Sanders leaves town and the Saints also become more aggressive down the field. Smith will be entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Rob Gronkowski caught 1-of-5 targets for 14 yards in the Bucs' Divisional Round win over the Saints.
His missed connections were tough throws and would have required diving, sprawling grabs. Gronkowski is a favorite of Tom Brady in the red zone alongside Mike Evans, but his counting stats haven't been there much this season in a loaded offense. Gronkowski will be a TD-dependent proposition next weekend at Green Bay in the NFC title game.

Chris Godwin caught 4-of-7 targets for 34 yards in the Bucs' Divisional Round win over the Saints.
Godwin's biggest play was a third-down catch on a slant on the final drive that produced a first down and helped salt away the clock. He very nearly made an incredible touchdown catch in the back of the end zone earlier in the evening but was unable to control the ball as he went to the ground despite beating the safety on the deep shot and getting two feet in bounds on the play. Godwin has been up-and-down this season in a loaded offense. He gets the Packers next week in the NFC title bout.

Jared Cook caught 5-of-6 targets for 28 yards in the Saints' Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
Cook had one to forget, losing a fumble in the open field that led to a Bucs touchdown the other way several plays later, and then he had a Drew Brees pass go through his hands and into the arms of a defensive back for an interception to seal the eventual loss in the fourth quarter. On the year, Cook, 34 in April, caught 37-of-60 targets for 504 yards and seven touchdowns across 15 games. Cook finished the year as the overall TE19 in half-PPR points per game. His best days are well behind him, even if Cook still offers some athleticism. Cook will head to free agency in March.

Ronald Jones rushed 13 times for 62 yards in the Bucs' Divisional Round win over the Saints.
He failed to catch his lone target in the passing game and was out-touched 22-13 by Leonard Fournette, who piled up 107 yards and one touchdown. Jones played through a quad issue that was noticeably bothering him on a long run that was eventually called back on a penalty. He'll get another week to rest his leg ahead of the NFC title date with the Packers at Lambeau. The cold weather won't be friendly to Jones' quad. Look for Fournette to again pace the Bucs backfield in that one.

Alvin Kamara rushed 18 times for 85 yards and caught 3-of-6 targets for 20 yards in the Saints' Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.
It was Kamara's ninth 100-yard game of the season after he accomplished the feat seven times during the regular season. Kamara looked well on his way to a mammoth receiving year, but his receiving numbers flat-lined for a stretch when Taysom Hill was the quarterback for a month when Drew Brees was out with broken ribs. Kamara's season ended with 187 rushing attempts for a career-high 932 yards and 16 scores on the ground. He also set career-highs with 107 targets for 83 grabs, 756 yards, and five scores through the air. Kamara was rewarded with a long0-term extension in 2020 and will be the focal point of the Brees-less Saints offense in the coming years. Kamara will be a top-three fantasy pick next summer.
