Kawaan Baker
22-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
There probably wasn't a better situation for Baker to fall into than the one the Saints currently present. After doing almost nothing to replace incumbent No. 2 wideout Emmanuel Sanders, No. 1 receiver Michael Thomas is set to miss the first few weeks of the season while recovering from ankle surgery. Not only could this give Baker the opening he needs to make the roster, but it could allow the South Alabama product to carve out a long-term role in the offense. Read Past Outlooks

Opportunity getting bigger
WRNew Orleans Saints
July 26, 2021
Baker has an opportunity to see snaps early in the season with Michael Thomas (ankle) expected to miss at least the first four games, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
While Tre'Quan Smith is primed to hold down the No. 1 role in Thomas' absence, Marquez Callaway and Deonte Harris are the favorites to handle the No. 2 and 3 roles behind him. However, nothing is set in stone, and Baker easily could push Callaway and Harris for some sort of offensive role during training camp. In fact, if Baker can impress the coaching staff during this window of opportunity, it's not impossible that the South Alabama product is involved in the offense all season long.

Learning multiple positions
WRNew Orleans Saints
June 28, 2021
The Saints intend for Baker to learn multiple receiver positions, Sam Shannon of the Saints' official site reports. "Baker is someone that has position flex ... you see him line up in the slot," head coach Sean Payton said during his post-draft press conference in May. "He's a high-IQ player for the receiver position. He's played in multiple positions. We will probably work him outside to begin with."
