Player Outlook
If you took one look at Perry's 2022 season stats and his frame, you'd wonder how he wasn't selected in the first couple of rounds of the 2023 NFL Draft. A closer evaluation of his film shows you that he played in an offensive system that requires a projection to the NFL level. Perry's ability to create consistent separation against NFL defensive backs is a projection, but the 6-foot-4 prospect did rack up 15 touchdowns and 10 catches of 20-plus yards in 2022. Perry should not be on your redraft radar and is better off left on your waiver wire in Dynasty leagues. Perry is a fine gamble in the final round of your rookie-only drafts.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Hauls in two scores Week 18

    Perry hauled in all three targets for 53 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 48-17 win over the Falcons. Perry ended his rookie campaign with his third and fourth receiving scores of the season. The 6-foot-4 wideout out of Wake Forest first caught a touchdown in tight coverage up the left sideline for an 18-yard touchdown that got the Saints on the board in the first quarter. He then scored the team's second-to-last touchdown when he got open in the right corner of the end zone for a six-yard score. Perry also caught a 29-yard pass on third down during the the third quarter, thus finishing with a single-came career high in receiving yards. Across 10 games this season, the sixth-round pick caught 12 of 18 targets for 246 yards and four touchdowns while showing notable playmaking skills on contested catches throughout the year.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Playing in Week 18

    Perry (illness) is listed as active Sunday against the Falcons. Since Michael Thomas (knee) went down Week 10, Perry has played a more prominent role in the Saints offense, recording at least one catch in seven games in a row. His output (9-193-2 line on 15 targets) during that span has been nothing to write home about, and he's coming off an illness that sidelined him at Thursday's practice. Still, with RB Alvin Kamara (ankle) inactive, Perry now will have to contend with only WRs Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed and TE Juwan Johnson (chest) for looks from QB Derek Carr.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Listed as questionable despite full practice

    Perry (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football reports. Perry was a full participant Friday in his return to practice, suggesting he'll likely play in the Saints' crucial Week 18 matchup. He's seen a lot of playing time but not many targets filling in for Michael Thomas (knee) the past month and a half, mostly serving as the fourth or fifth option in a passing game that also features WR Chris Olave, RB Alvin Kamara (ankle), WR Rashid Shaheed and TE Juwan Johnson (chest) as pass catchers for QB Derek Carr. For their regular-season finale, the Saints have three of those players listed as questionable, with Kamara seemingly in more danger than Perry and Johnson.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Misses practice Thursday

    Perry (illness) did not participate in practice Thursday after not even appearing on the injury report Wednesday. The wide receiver's status for Sunday's game against the Falcons is now uncertain. Perry has nine catches for 193 yards and two touchdowns this season, but he has yet to log more than four targets in a game.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Two targets in big win

    Perry totaled one reception (on two targets) for five yards during Sunday's 23-13 win against the Buccaneers. Perry logged two targets during the second quarter, marking his only notable action in Sunday's crucial win for the Saints. The rookie out of Wake Forest has come on somewhat over the second half of the season, but he's still logged more than three targets just once this season. Perry has shown big-play ability with two touchdown catches of 20-plus yards this season. However, unless he can find the end zone again Week 18, his fantasy value should remain inconsequential during next Sunday's regular-season finale against Atlanta.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Hauls in late touchdown pass

    Perry caught his only target for 35 yards and one touchdown during Thursday's 30-22 loss to the Rams. Perry went unnoticed for the entire night before the Saints made a late comeback that ultimately fell short in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Derek Carr threw a deep pass down the sideline for the 6-foot-4 wideout, and the rookie out of Wake Forest came down with it for a 35-yard touchdown with just under four minutes remaining. This noteworthy highlight still marked what was an underwhelming night for Perry given that he logged just one target despite playing the third-most offensive snaps (36) among New Orleans' wideouts. Instead, Carr was locked in on his top-two wideouts in Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed, as these two combined for 14 receptions on 22 targets. Tight end Juwan Johnson also served a bigger role with four catches on seven targets. With Michael Thomas (knee) still on IR, it's not a good sign for Perry's fantasy relevance that he tied with reserve wideout Keith Kirkwood and No. 2 running back Jamaal Williams for the Saints' sixth-most targets Thursday night. It's likely that Perry will play a similarly modest role over the final two weeks of the season.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Grabs two targets Sunday

    Perry gathered in both of his targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 24-6 win versus the Giants. Perry took two short passes for explosive catch-and-runs with receptions of 18 and 16 yards Sunday. The rookie wideout has had his workload and playing time increase as of late while Michael Thomas (knee) has been on IR. However, his target share didn't move much even though No. 1 wideout Chris Olave (ankle) was inactive Week 15. Perry has now logged seven receptions (on 12 targets) 154 yards and a touchdown this season, with all of those stats coming across the past five games. While Thomas is now eligible to come off injured reserve, the Saints will have a very short turnaround before playing against the Rams on Thursday Night Football. Thomas' continued absence could continue to lead to increased, though likely marginal, opportunities for Perry in Week 16.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Catches 44-yard pass in win

    Perry caught his only target for 44 yards during Sunday's 28-6 win versus the Panthers. Perry recorded the longest reception of his career, hauling in a 44-yard pass from quarterback Derek Carr midway through the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-4 rookie has seen starting reps over the past four games while Michael Thomas has been injured and on IR with a knee injury. The Saints' receiving corps is extremely short-handed with starter Rashid Shaheed (thigh) also inactive for the second game in a row Week 14, yet Perry's production was still limited, and he's now logged five catches (on 10 targets) for 119 yards over the last four games. The sixth-round pick's most notable impact was when he hauled in a touchdown pass on a broken play in Week 10. Barring an injury to No. 1 wideout Chris Olave, Perry's role is likely to remain limited to just a handful of targets when the Saints face the Giants on Sunday, Dec. 17.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Big gain on one catch

    Perry secured one of three targets for 30 yards in the Saints' 33-28 loss to the Lions on Sunday. The rookie was expected to enjoy an expanded role with Rashid Shaheed (thigh) sidelined, but Perry finished a distant third in targets behind Chris Olave and Alvin Kamara. Perry now has at least one catch in three straight contests, but he'll project for an even smaller role than Sunday's if Shaheed is ready to return for a Week 14 home matchup against the Panthers.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Logs two targets in loss

    Perry gathered in one of two targets for seven yards during Sunday's 24-15 loss to the Falcons. Perry once again saw increased playing time with veteran wideout Michael Thomas (knee) now on injured reserve. The 6-foot-4 rookie played the most offensive snaps (53) of any Saints receiver Sunday, but he still finished in a four-way tie for the team's fifth-most targets. Perry's biggest contribution actually came when he recovered a fumble by quarterback Derek Carr in the third quarter. The Wake Forest product has now totaled six targets while playing over 70 percent of offensive snaps in both of the past two games for New Orleans. Perry should continue to see increased playing time if Chris Olave (concussion) and/or Rashid Shaheed (thigh) are sidelined Week 13 after they were both forced out due to injury versus Atlanta.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Hauls in first two passes

    Perry accrued two receptions (on four targets) for 38 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Vikings. Perry saw the first significant usage of his career, playing 84 percent of New Orleans' offensive snaps while also logging the first four targets of his rookie season. The sixth-round pick was a healthy scratch through the first seven weeks of the season, but he made his NFL debut Week 8 after surpassing Keith Kirkwood on the wideout depth chart. Perry also came through big when he went up and made a contested touchdown catch on a pass thrown all the way back across the field by backup quarterback Jameis Winston, who relieved injured starter Derek Carr (shoulder) late in the second quarter. Perry's usage was likely expanded after starting wideout Michael Thomas was ruled out with a knee injury early on in Sunday's game. The Saints are on bye Week 11, so it will be worth monitoring Thomas' injury status when determining what, if any, value Perry may have in the Week 12 contest against Atlanta.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Inactive again

    Perry (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Texans. Despite making the Saints' initial 53-man roster, Perry has yet to see the field this season. The rookie sixth-round pick is currently behind Chris Olave, Michael Thomas, Rashid Shaheed, Keith Kirkwood and Lynn Bowden on the wideout depth chart.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Inactive Sunday

    Perry (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against Tennessee, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. The 2023 sixth-round pick out of Wake Forest did enough to make the Saints' active roster but won't be suiting up Sunday. Perry's next opportunity to see the field will be Week 2 against the Panthers.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Gets more run in preseason finale

    Perry caught three of his four targets for 12 yards in Sunday's preseason finale against Houston. Perry added three more receptions to his busy preseason, but the rookie wideout was unable to break off any big plays for the second straight game after his impressive exhibition debut (6-70-1 on Aug. 14). Chris Olave and Michael Thomas are expected to start alongside new quarterback Derek Carr once the regular season kicks off, but Perry may have shown enough this exhibition season to earn a spot on the Saints' final roster. The 23-year-old's roster bid would increase should either Rashid Shaheed (groin) or Tre'Quan Smith (groin) be forced to miss Week 1, but neither injury is currently considered long term.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Three grabs Sunday

    Perry caught three of five targets for 22 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Chargers. The 2023 sixth-round pick out of Wake Forest couldn't follow up his huge showing in the Saints' preseason opener, with his longest catch going for only nine yards. Perry remains in a fight for a depth spot in the receiving corps, but he did get the start Sunday with New Orleans resting all its regular skill players, and he was on the other end of Jameis Winston's first completion. The rookie will get one more chance to separate himself from the pack in preseason action Sunday, Aug. 27 against the Texans.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Leading receiver in preseason debut

    Perry caught all six of his targets for 70 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 26-24 preseason win versus the Chiefs. Perry wound up playing the second-most offensive snaps of any Saints wideouts, as veteran receivers Rashid Shaheed (groin) and Tre'Quan Smith (groin) were both sidelined by injuries. The 6-foot-3 rookie immediately established a connection with backup quarterback Jameis Winston, catching a 14-yard pass to begin the Saints' second offensive series. He followed this with a 29-yard touchdown reception on a deep crosser route three plays later. Starting quarterback Derek Carr also said that Perry was a "featured" piece of the team's game plan even though the rookie sixth round-pick got off to a rough start in training camp, according to Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com. Perry finished as New Orleans' leading receiver during his preseason debut, and this strong performance should go a long way toward his chances to make New Orleans' final 53-man roster.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Passes physical Wednesday

    Perry (undisclosed) passed a physical Wednesday and was reinstated from the Saints' active/non-football injury list, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports. Perry spent a little more than a week on the NFI list due to an unknown injury, but he'll now progress to on-field reps with training camp in session. A 2023 sixth-round pick, he was a touchdown machine at the tail end of his collegiate career, hauling in 26 scores in his final 27 games at Wake Forest.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Hits NFI list

    The Saints placed Perry (undisclosed) on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday. A sixth-round pick by New Orleans in this year's draft, Perry will begin training camp on the sideline as he deals with an unknown injury. Once he's healthy enough to get on the field, he'll bring his 6-foot-4, 198-pound frame and 26 touchdowns in his final 27 games at Wake Forest to the pro ranks.

  • Saints' A.T. Perry: Taken by New Orleans in sixth round

    The Saints selected Perry in the sixth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 195th overall. Perry is a bit thin at 6-foot-4, 198 pounds and with that comes concern about whether he can handle the physicality of the NFL, but Perry was extremely productive at Wake Forest (152 receptions for 2,389 and 26 touchdowns in his last 27 games) and he might have the right athletic traits to be a tough situational matchup for defenses. More specifically, Perry seems almost unnaturally flexible and agile for someone of his height, meaning he can look smaller when he needs to and start/stop/change direction more like someone 5-foot-11 when it suits him. That matters because if Perry is elusive enough then he can win the ball by creating separation rather than physically dominating at the catch point. He's someone to keep an eye on, even if he's a long shot.
