Ortiz signed with the Saints' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Zach Line (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, so Ortiz is being brought in to possibly fill a starting fullback role. It could be a one-game NFL stint for Ortiz if Line gets healthy before the playoffs, however.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Fullback in the Ravens' system has paid more fantasy dividends than most other teams in recent years thanks to Kyle Juszczyk, who cashed in during free agency following a 37-catch season in 2016. However, to just assume that Ortiz automatically inherits that type of production and role would be a complete oversight. Not only will Ortiz have to beat out Lorenzo Taliaferro for the fullback spot on the roster, but it's also worth noting that he doesn't have a comparable skill set to Juszczyk as a pass catcher. Ortiz will likely make his bones in the run game, but again, he'll need to hold off Taliaferro before playing time becomes a real topic of discussion for the rookie out of Oregon State.
