Zach Line: Totals 13 touches in 2019

Line rushed seven times for 20 yards and caught six of ten targets for 36 yards during the 2019 season.

Analysis: The SMU product saw a smattering of touches across the season, operating primarily as a blocking fullback for New Orleans. He failed to record a touchdown for the first time in three years with New Orleans, though his receptions and receiving yards were the most since he joined the team in 2017. Line will be an unrestricted free agent heading into his eight season, and it's unknown if he'll re-sign with the Saints.

Zach Line: Won't play Sunday

Line (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against Minnesota, Chris Corso of the Vikings' official site reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old missed Week 17 with the knee injury and was unable to practice this week, so he won't be available for the playoff opener. The Saints will be without a true fullback Sunday, though Josh Hill could work as a backfield blocker in Line's place.

Zach Line: Sits out Wednesday

Line (knee) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Line missed the season finale against the Panthers with the knee issue, and appears in jeopardy of missing the wild-card playoff round. The team signed fellow fullback Rick Ortiz on Dec. 28, suggesting there is serious concern for Line's status heading into the playoffs.

Zach Line: Sidelined for Week 17

Line (knee) won't suit up in Sunday's season finale against the Panthers, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Line was a late add to the injury report Friday after he failed to suit up in practice. Now that he's officially out Sunday, his absence will likely mean more time for Latavius Murray or depth tight end Josh Hill on offense.

Line (knee) is officially questionable for Sunday's matchup versus the Panthers, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Line popped up on the injury report Friday with the knee issue, signalling his status is firmly uncertain for the season finale. If he's forced to sit out Week 17, his absence will likely mean more time for Latavius Murray or depth tight end Josh Hill in the offense.

Line rushed twice for four yards in Monday night's 34-7 win over Indianapolis.

Zach Line: Returning to action Monday

Line (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Monday's game versus Indianapolis, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Line has been sidelined since Week 11 due to the knee injury, but he's ready to retake the field against the Colts. The 29-year-old should work as a blocker and occasional receiving option for the Saints.

Zach Line: Still out Week 14

Line (knee) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Line was able to work as a limited practice participant this week but will still miss his third consecutive contest. Dwayne Washington will operate as the Saints' depth running back once again.

Zach Line: Ruled out again

Line (knee) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Falcons, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Line will miss a second straight game due to his lingering knee injury. Expect Dwayne Washington to play an expanded depth role as long as Line is unable to play.

Zach Line: Can't go Sunday

Line (knee) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Analysis: Line was unable to practice this week with the knee issue, and won't be ready to go for Sunday's game. In his stead, Dwayne Washington is expected to handle the depth running back snaps for the contest.

Zach Line: Will play Sunday

Line (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Line was limited at practice all week due to the knee issue, but he's ready to go for Week 11. The 29-year-old should serve his usual role as a blocker and occasional receiving option for the Saints.

Zach Line: Limited in practice again

Line (knee) was limited in practice Thursday.

Analysis: Line played just nine snaps in Week 10 and has logged two limited practices so far this week. If he stays limited or is upgraded to full on Friday, he has a good shot to suit up against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

November 14, 2019 2:26 PM EST

Zach Line: Scores another touchdown

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.
