Saints' Kenny Stills: Meager production over 13 games
Stills caught six of 23 targets for 68 yards and one touchdown over 13 games in 2021.
Stills found his way back to New Orleans in 2021, but he struggled to produce despite there being plenty of available opportunity at receiver. He was ultimately waived at one point in December before re-signing and being made a healthy scratch in the second-to-last outing. With each of Michael Thomas, Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris and Lil'Jordan Humphrey due back in 2022, Stills seems unlikely to be offered another contract with the Saints, especially if the team adds more talent through the draft or free agency....

Saints' Kenny Stills: Healthy scratch Sunday
Stills (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.
Stills was held without a catch in each of the last five games, and he won't suit up for Sunday's primetime matchup. Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Easop Winston could see a slight uptick in playing time against Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: No targets despite plenty of snaps
Stills was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 30-9 win over the Jets.
Despite seeing the third-most snaps amongst Saints receivers in the absence of both Deonte Harris (suspension) and Lil'Jordan Humphrey (hamstring), Stills wasn't targeted with a pass. However, no Saints receivers should be expected to produce much as long as the offense revolves around the legs of Alvin Kamara and Taysom Hill.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: Back in Big Easy
The Saints re-signed Stills on Friday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
New Orleans' receiving corps is at less than 100 percent at the moment, with Deonte Harris suspended three games, Ty Montgomery (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list and Lil'Jordan Humphrey (hamstring) questionable for Sunday's road game versus the Jets. If Humphrey is able to suit up, Taysom Hill (finger) will have Tre'Quan Smith, Marquez Callaway, Humphrey and Stills available at wide receiver. Despite seeing time in 10 contests this season, Stills has been incredibly inefficient with his 22 targets, accumulating a sparse 5-64-1 line.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: Time over in NOLA
The Saints waived Stills on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Though the Saints will be without one of their top three wideouts in Deonte Harris for the next three games after his suspension was upheld by the NFL, Stills won't be given the opportunity to try and replace him. The 29-year-old already seemed to fall behind Ty Montgomery and Lil'Jordan Humphrey in the pecking order behind the Saints' starting receivers (Harris, Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway), as Stills ranked sixth among the position group in snaps in last week's 27-17 loss to the Cowboys. Stills concludes his second stint in New Orleans with five receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown on 22 targets over 10 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: No targets again
Stills was not targeted during Sunday's 40-29 loss to the Eagles.
This is the third time in three games that Stills hasn't seen a single target. Neither the loss of Jameis Winston (knee) or the return of Tre'Quan Smith has done him any favors, and he's also firmly behind Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris in the pecking order. The 29-year-old won't even be worth a dart throw in Week 12 against Buffalo.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: No targets against Titans
Stills was not targeted with a pass during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Titans.
With Tre'Quan Smith healthy, it seems like he, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris are settling in as the top three receivers on the depth chart. Meanwhile, Stills and Kevin White have been rotating in as occasional deep threats. Unless something suddenly changes in Stills' favor, he's just an afterthought in most fantasy formats....

Saints' Kenny Stills: First TD of season
Stills caught two of five targets for 30 yards with one touchdown during Sunday's 27-25 win over Atlanta.
Clearly working behind both Marquez Callaway and Tre'Quan Smith, Stills entered the final minutes of the game with just one catch on four targets before grabbing a go-ahead touchdown with just over a minute left in regulation. As this was easily the 29-year-old's most productive game of the year since reuniting with New Orleans in late September, there's still nothing to see here from a fantasy standpoint.... See More ...

Saints' Kenny Stills: No targets against Tampa Bay
Stills wasn't targeted with a pass during Sunday's 36-27 win over Tampa Bay.
With Tre'Quan Smith back in the fold, Stills' role has shrunk. Couple with the likely absence of Jameis Winston (knee) and the negative implications that has on the Saints' passing game, Stills is hardly even a GPP flier despite a welcoming Week 9 matchup with Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: Catchless in win
Stills failed to haul in any of his three targets in Monday's 13-10 win over the Seahawks.
Stills was targeted on multiple deep shots, but the wideout failed to connect with quarterback Jameis Winston. The Saints struggled to move the ball through the air outside of mostly short and intermediate passes. Stills played the third-most offensive snaps among the Saints' wide receivers, finishing at 43 percent.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Kenny Stills: Does little with five targets
Stills caught two of five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 33-22 win over Washington. He also gained one yard on his lone carry.
Finally signed to the 53-man roster this weekend after bouncing on and off the practice squad the prior two weeks, Stills saw a season high in looks from Jameis Winston but wasn't able to do much with the volume. He has three catches for 34 yards through three games, but his spot on the depth chart could be tenuous with both Michael Thomas (ankle) and Tre'Quan Smith (hamstring) eligible to rejoin the lineup after the Saints' Week 6 bye....

Saints' Kenny Stills: Signed to active roster
Stills was signed to the Saints' 53-man roster Saturday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stills was elevated from the practice squad for each of the last two games, but he'll join the active roster on a more permanent basis ahead of Sunday's game against Washington. The 29-year-old has secured one of four targets for 17 yards across his first two appearances of the year.... See More ... See Less
Kenny Stills: Sent back to practice squad
Stills reverted to the Saints' practice squad Monday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Stills had to revert to the practice squad after having been elevated to the active roster for Sunday's overtime loss to the Giants, but his play may have earned him another shot at seeing the field for New Orleans this season. The veteran played just 16 offensive snaps, and while he didn't catch his only official target, Stills did have a 46-yard touchdown called back due to penalty.... See More ... See Less
