Line gained four yards on one carry and caught one pass for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.
ANALYSIS
The Saints' starting fullback caught his second touchdown of the season, but given that he has only nine total touches all year, Line can safely be ignored in most fantasy formats.

Week 15 Reactions: Commissioner Goodell on Line 1
December 20, 2015
There were a number of big fantasy performances Sunday, but they'll all be overshadowed by Odell Beckham, who is likely to hear from the league office about his antics with Panthers cornerback Josh Norman.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
The Vikings re-signed Line during the 2016 offseason, securing his status as the team's No. 1 fullback. He had as many receptions as rushes during the 2015 season with six apiece, including three total touchdowns. Those numbers don't figure to change much in 2016, while the 26-year-old provides superstar running back Adrian Peterson with blocking out of the backfield.
Line will try to sick on the roster as a fullback, but the Vikings have de-emphasized the position under offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
Line, an undrafted free agent from SMU, began last season as the starting fullback while Jerome Felton was out due to a suspension. He made a strong impression, but he'll have a hard time finding a significant role under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who hasn't used traditional fullbacks much in his career.
Line will have a tough task to make the roster at fullback with Jerome Felton entrenched as the starter at the position.
