It also looks like Michael Thomas will be ready to start the season.

Saints News Network offseason grade: A-

New Orleans’ front office had a salary cap deficit of approximately $77M going into the offseason. GM Mickey Loomis and VP of Football Operations Khai Harley were able to restructure and revise contracts, whittle down the cap numbers to a manageable -$20M and begin to sign players. The Saints flirted with quarterback Deshaun Watson before signing starting QB Jameis Winston to a two-year, $14 million deal. Perhaps the best two offseason acquisitions were to add Landry and Mathieu. Both have roots in the New Orleans area. Loomis made shrewd moves by retaining most of the coaching staff and promoting Allen as head coach and Pete Carmichael as primary play caller.—Kyle T. Mosley

Week 18: Panthers

Winston is expected to start Week 1 at the Falcons and the Saints hope he can pick up right where he left off. Winston tossed fourteen touchdowns with only three interceptions across his first seven games for the Saints last year, earning the sixth-best passer rating in the league and logging the lowest turnover rate of his career.

Thomas is also expected to return in Week 1. The 2019 fantasy football standout, who tallied 149 catches and 1,725 yards in 2019, hasn’t played a full season since then but the sky’s the limit—as is the bust potential—for the talented receiver.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year betting odds and prediction

  NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year betting odds and prediction The top of the NFL Draft was loaded with defenders, making this an intriguing award to find a bet in. Here are the top 15 on the board, odds courtesy of DraftKings. Aidan Hutchinson (+550) Kayvon Thibodeaux (+550) Travon Walker (+750) Quay Walker (+800) Kyle Hamilton (+800) Derek Stingley Jr. (+1000) Ahmad Gardner (+1000) Jermaine Johnson II (+1000) Devin Lloyd (+1000) Nakobe Dean (+1200) Jordan Davis (+1400) Trent McDuffie (+1600) George Karlaftis (+1600) Kaiir Elam (+2000) Andrew Booth Jr. (+2200) The first five picks in this past NFL Draft were all defensive players, with 16 total selected in the first round.

Winston got yet another weapon as the Saints traded up to draft Chris Olave with the 11th pick in this year’s draft. Olave will have plenty of opportunity, even with Thomas back on the field, to make a big impression for New Orleans.

The speedy receiver will also share the field with veteran newcomer Jarvis Landry.

In short: Winston has no shortage of weapons available and with Carmichael remaining as offensive play-caller, we should know what to expect from this offense.

Running back Alvin Kamara is perhaps the biggest question mark for the season. A looking suspension has been postponed yet again, but it’s delay suggests Kamara may be available for the start of the season with a suspension coming in a few months.

Let’s look at the schedule and see what we can surmise.

Beginning with the NFC South, the Saints will play the Buccaneers, Falcons and Panthers each twice. I think Tom Brady wins both of his matchups, but the Saints could easily take both from the Falcons and Panthers.

NFL futures, odds: New Orleans Saints enter the post-Sean Payton era with intrigue

  NFL futures, odds: New Orleans Saints enter the post-Sean Payton era with intrigue NFL futures, odds: New Orleans Saints enter the post-Sean Payton era with intriguePayton’s final season is a tough one to judge as it wasn’t very pretty or entertaining. The defense was impressive, but the offense left a lot to be desired. Certainly, you can put some of that blame on the fact that Jameis Winston missed half of the season after tearing his ACL. The Saints were forced to start four different quarterbacks and we had the joy of watching Trevor Siemian on Thanksgiving and Ian Book on a random Monday night. But even when Winston was healthy, it was far from the kind of offense we got used to under Drew Brees.

I’ll give them four wins within their own division.

Moving on to the rest of the NFC, the Saints host the Vikings, Seahawks and Rams at the Superdome. That’s a huge home-field advantage, and I will give them the Seahawks in an easy win. They can likely also beat the Vikings, so let’s call this six.

The Saints will travel to battle the 49ers, Eagles and Cardinals. I will give them the matchup in San Francisco versus Trey Lance, and we are at seven.

The Steelers, Ravens, Bengals, Browns and Raiders round out the AFC matchups. The Saints can beat the Steelers, and possibly the Browns, so I think we can call this eight.

After breaking it down, it makes sense why the over is heavily juiced. That being said, there are enough question marks around Winston and Thomas returning from injury, a minor coaching change, Kamara’s looming suspension and Olave’s rookie season that as a betting person, I’d rather take the plus-money.

BET: Under 7.5 wins (+138)

Clemson is favored to win the ACC at SI Sportsbook and Miami is poised to challenge in coach Mario Cristobal’s first season. Despite winning 10 games, 2021 marked a down year for Clemson as the program failed to win the ACC championship for the first time since Florida State completed the three-peat in 2014. Oddsmakers expect Dabo Swinney will enjoy a bounce-back campaign and lead the Tigers to a potential 12th consecutive double-digit win season. SI Sportsbook has installed the Tigers as prohibitive -143 favorites in an ACC conference that is more wide open than the betting odds indicate.
