Saints | Brandin Cooks' option should be exercised

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 10:02:16 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks is expected to have his fifth-year option picked up this offseason. He would receive $8 million in 2018 if the optioned is exercised.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last two seasons and has 17 touchdowns during that span. Cooks will continue to be the top receiving option for the Saints and should be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver for fantasy owners in 2017.

Saints | Brandin Cooks leaves game

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 22:33:19 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (head) left the Week 17 game against the Atlanta Falcons after hitting his head on the turf. He walked to the locker room under his own power, but was unable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks finished the season with 78 catches for 1,172 yards and eight touchdowns. He was gold during the fantasy playoffs and was a must-start when 100 percent healthy. He and Michael Thomas are going to be a dynamic one-two fantasy punch for years to come.

Saints | Brandin Cooks targeted nine times

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 00:12:34 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks was targeted nine times and caught five passes for 98 yards in a 31-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is among New Orleans' top receiving targets, but Drew Brees has so many weapons in other players like Michael Thomas and Willie Snead that it is hard to pick one top receiver. Cooks is a WR2 or WR3-style receiver at best.

Saints | Brandin Cooks explodes in desert

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 21:58:04 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks posted seven receptions for 186 yards and two touchdowns on eight targets in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks posted his first multi-TD game since Week 1, and it was his first 1000-yard game since Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers. Cooks has five or more receptions in each of his past three outings and has re-emerged as a must-start WR2 in all fantasy leagues.

Saints | Brandin Cooks just misses out

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 22:53:28 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks posted five receptions for 61 yards in the Week 14 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was targeted a game-high 10 times. Cooks nearly had a second-half touchdown, but after further review the ball hit the ground while he was falling to the ground.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has struggled down the stretch, failing to find the end zone in each of his past four games. He has just two 100-yard games this season, and one since Week 1. He remains more of a low-end WR2 at this point.

Saints | Brandin Cooks ready for rebound?

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:49:11 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had been averaging 94 yards and one touchdown per game at home this season before last week's debacle.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see Drew Brees and the Saints make a concerted effort to get Cooks the ball in Week 13. It might be easy to want to bench him this week after not being targeted last week, but the Saints and Detroit Lions could be involved in a shootout. You won't want Cooks on your bench if that occurs.

Saints | Brandin Cooks' blanking result of coverages

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 12:29:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not see a single target in a Week 12 rout of the Los Angeles Rams - a fact head coach Sean Payton suggested was "the result of some coverages". "There were certainly calls with his name and number on it, and periodically once in a while that (being held without a target) can happen," Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question the emergence of rookie Michael Thomas has played a role in it, but Cooks has been extremely hit-or-miss this season and required touchdowns to save his fantasy day. The third-year wideout has topped five catches and/or 66 yards only once since Week 6, falling below his season yards-per-catch average of 14.4 five times over that six-game span. As a result, Cooks is quickly fading into low-end WR2 territory.

Saints | Brandin Cooks not targeted once

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 21:18:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not have any receptions and he was not targeted once in the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: There was no word on whether Cooks suffered some kind of injury, or if he was simply blanketed by the Rams causing Drew Brees to have to look elsewhere. Either way, it was an ugly goose egg of his legion of fantasy owners in a key week of action.

Saints | Brandin Cooks can't break big play

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:33:16 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks finished with seven catches for 42 yards and two carries for seven yards in a 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It was an odd game for the speedy receiver, who had one of his worst outputs in terms of yards but tied his season high in catches. Expect a better line when the Saints take on the Rams in Week 12.

Saints | Brandin Cooks has five receptions

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 22:18:23 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks managed five catches for 66 yards with six targets in the Week 9 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks entered the game with a touchdown in each of his past three games. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues despite the emergence of rookie Michael Thomas in the New Orleans pass defense.
