Saints | Brandon Coleman busy in loss

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 22:20:09 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandon Coleman posted six receptions for 47 yards on 10 targets in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Houston Texans. He saw increased work with WRs Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead resting.

Fantasy Tip: Coleman looked good last preseason, but he never did quite emerge as that special fantasy sleeper everyone envisioned. Now, Brandin Cooks is the top banana and a WR1 for fantasy owners, and Willie Snead and rookie Michael Thomas look to be special. It appears Coleman will be the No. 4 wideout in NOLA, and more of a WR5 for fantasy players in most formats.

Saints | Cooks, Snead sitting vs. Texans

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 16:48:23 -0700

New Orleans WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead will not play in the team's exhibition game against the Houston Texans on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player is known to be dealing with an injury, so the Saints' decision to sit both starters is likely just a way to give rookie Michael Thomas and others behind him on the depth chart plenty of snaps to show their wares. Look for Cooks and Snead to play most of the first half when New Orleans hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers next Friday.

Saints | Brandin Cooks out of practice

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 06:42:45 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, Aug. 4. Cooks was shaken up at the end of practice the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is coming off an 84-1,138-9 sophomore campaign, but this could be the year he could emerge into the WR1 conversation. The Saints landed a legit tight end in Coby Fleener and have other developing receivers, which they seemed to be exposed without at times last season. Cooks is a high-end WR2 with upside.

Saints | Michael Thomas to work as starter?

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:59:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas has a big body and could be a stud receiver in the red zone. Many project him to be the team's No. 2 wideout behind WR Brandin Cooks.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is worth watching in training camp and the preseason. If the rookie can build rapport with Drew Brees, and the club doesn't look outside of the organization for veteran depth, Thomas might be worth a look as a WR3/4 or flex option in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Saints | Brandin Cooks in line for big year

Tue, 12 Jul 2016 20:05:54 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks managed 1,138 receiving yards last season, and beat writer Nick Underhill sets the floor at 1,200 yards heading into 2016, with Cooks possibly flirting with 1,500 yards if he can stay healthy and post a few big games.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks will be a Top 15 fantasy option at his position. As long as he can stay healthy he has the potential to be a bona fide WR1 by season's end.

Saints | Drew Brees confident in young receivers

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 09:19:08 -0700

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees has confidence in his young corps of wide receivers led by WR Brandin Cooks and WR Willie Snead.

"I think when Drew is out there, he doesn't look at Brandin Cooks as a young player," head coach Sean Payton said. "I don't think he looks at Snead that way anymore because of the experience they've had. There's a combination there of guys that know what to do and how do they fit with the scheme that we're asking of them."

Fantasy Tip: Brees is 37, but he led the league in passing yards last season and completed 68.3% of his passes. The 32 touchdowns limited his output some, but that could increase as the experience with this group increases. Cooks has the ability of a WR1 in fantasy, but he's probably better served as a WR2. Snead amassed 984 yards and three scores last year and is a serviceable WR3. Brandon Coleman is a breakout candidate as a WR4. As for Brees, he's just below the elite tier of fantasy QBs, but he should be one of the first options after the top three are gone.

Saints | Brandin Cooks still not practicing

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 16:53:36 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (undisclosed) worked off to the side with trainers during practice Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks will be the Saints' No. 1 wide receiver assuming he's full-go when the season starts. He has added value in PPR leagues, too, after catching 84 passes for over 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns last season. View Cooks as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

Saints | Michael Thomas practices with first team

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:00:18 -0700

New Orleans Saints rookie WR Michael Thomas practiced with the first-team offense during organized team activities Thursday, May 26, with WR Brandin Cooks (undisclosed) missing practice.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas will still play behind Cooks, Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman for now, although he eventually could compete with Coleman for the No. 3 wide receiver spot. As it stands, Thomas is a WR4 consideration.

Saints | Brandin Cooks out of practice

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:46:30 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (undisclosed) is out of practice Thursday, May 26, and working on the side with trainers.

Fantasy Tip: The odds are it's a minor ailment that shouldn't affect his draft stock. He had a decent 84-1,138-9 season last year. He's a solid WR2, and entering that pivotal third year, he has upside.

Saints | Brandin Cooks tops 100 yards

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:41:41 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had five catches for 123 yards and a touchdown and four carries for 10 yards in a 38-27 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has now topped 100 yards in three of his last four games and has three touchdowns during the same span. He has been solid in the second half of the season and has saved his best football for the final weeks.
