After finishing 7-9 for three straight seasons, the Saints snapped out of their losing-season funk by winning the NFC South with an 11-5 record. Per usual, the offense was elite. However, their recipe for offensive success changed. After years of relying on Drew Brees to do it all, they asked less of their future Hall of Fame quarterback and leaned on a running back tandem of Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara that gave opposing defenses fits. Kamara's incredible rookie season earned him the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year hardware, and he'll have more on his plate to open the year due to Ingram serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Saints are Locked & Loaded

Kamara should be up for the challenge, and Brees is no slouch should the team opt to air it out a bit more frequently in Ingram's early-season absence. Despite the lack of passing volume in 2017, Brees remained elite, and he'll have new weapons to bolster a passing attack that already features one of the game's best wide receivers, Michael Thomas.The Saints signed wide receiver Cameron Meredith and tight end Benjamin Watson in the offseason, and they spent the 27th pick in the third round of this year's NFL Draft on wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith. Meredith missed the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL, but if he returns to his pre-injury form, he'll be a great addition to the offense. Meredith led the Bears in receptions, receiving yards, and tied for the team lead in touchdown receptions in 2016, but he'll face even less defensive attention as just another weapon in an offense bursting at the seams with playmakers.

Watson enjoyed a career year across the board with the Saints in 2015, and while he's long in the tooth, he might have something left in the tank and already has rapport with Brees from previously playing with him. The Saints should have one of the top offenses in the NFL again this season. A big part of the reason the Saints were able to return to the playoffs last year was the huge leap they made on defense. Perhaps leaning on the running game more often aided the defense, but it's a unit that received a major influx of talent last season and is loaded with talent at every level. Kamara wasn't the only Saint to take home ROY hardware, as cornerback Marshon Lattimore won the honor on the defensive side of the ball. Marcus Williams had an excellent rookie season at free safety, providing the club another hit in last year's NFL Draft. Second-year corner Ken Crawley took a huge step forward providing the team another top-flight corner opposite Lattimore, and Cameron Jordan is one of the NFL's elite hellraisers on the defensive line. The defense doesn't look like a one-year wonder, and they're poised to be a top-10 unit again this year.
