Three and out: Saints make best fantasy fit for Moss

Saints could sign Moss: After a workout in which he “looked like the old Randy”, free agent WR Randy Moss reportedly could sign with the Saints. The veteran has at least one more visit scheduled with an unnamed team, and other teams — like the 49ers — haven’t ruled him out. But from a fantasy perspective, few teams could provide a better fit than New Orleans. With a wide open offense and the league’s most prolific passer in Drew Brees (provided he signs), Moss should see plenty of chances to succeed. And if Marques Colston and/or Robert Meachem leave through free agency, Moss could find himself closer to the top of the depth chart than anyone would have thought. Right now, the six-time Pro Bowl selection rates as a No. 3 WR, but that could change.

Wayne “open” to signing with Dolphins: With Peyton Manning set to hit the open market and speculation rising that the Dolphins could be the front-runner for his services, WR Reggie Wayne is reportedly receptive to the idea of joining his QB in South Florida. Last week, the idea of the duo sticking together first surfaced, with the Dolphins among the teams interested in courting the pair. Frankly, Miami wouldn’t be a terrible landing spot for Manning and Wayne; the chance to work with Brandon Marshall and a strong backfield pairing of Reggie Bush and Daniel Thomas would provide the type of offensive weapons Manning hasn’t had in awhile. There’s a lot that has to happen to make that a reality, but it could make Manning a top-five fantasy QB again while resurrecting Wayne’s sunken value.

Best cleared to work out: Lions RB Jahvid Best (concussion) has been cleared to work out and is expected to fully participate in team OTAs during the offseason. It’s a positive step toward Best getting back onto the field after missing the final 10 games of last season. But after two NFL seasons that have seen the former Cal Bear suffer a handful of injuries, it’s hard to recommend him as anything other than a No. 3 RB. Plus, with Mikel Leshoure expected to play after missing all of 2011 with a torn Achilles and Detroit considering re-signing Kevin Smith, there may not be enough touches to go around.
