Saints | Browns shut down Saints' passing game

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:19:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Marques Colston, who didn't catch a pass in Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns for the first time in 87 games, wasn't even targeted a single time. The Browns made it their mission to shut the Saints' downfield passing game down, and Cleveland had seven defensive backs on the field at once at times. WR Brandin Cooks was held to just three catches for 17 yards, and the four receivers combined for nine catches for 79 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Colston's fat zero for fantasy owners in Week 2 hurt badly. The good news is he has a good chance of bouncing back in Week 3 at home against the Minnesota Vikings.

Saints | Brandin Cooks has solid debut

Sun, 07 Sep 2014 18:29:24 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had seven receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Sept. 7.

Fantasy Tip: There were plenty of fantasy owners and experts loving Cooks in the preseason, and he lived up to the hype for at least one game. Still, after his solid performance, he might be a little overpriced in FantasyScore. There will likely be better values.

Saints | Kenny Stills limited Wednesday

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 14:51:16 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills (quadriceps) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Stills could be questionable to play in Week 1, and he might even be a game-time decision Sunday. As a result, he's a risky play in daily games. Marques Colston is a safe bet for solid production, and rookie Brandin Cooks should return nice profit at a cheap price if Stills doesn't suit up.

Saints | Brandin Cooks sits

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 06:25:15 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (illness) did not play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, due to illness. Cooks took the warmup, and said he could have played if necessary.

Fantasy Tip: This is just a temporary setback for Cooks, and should not change his status on draft day. Look for Cooks to be drafted as a fourth or fifth wide receiver with upside.

Saints | Brandin Cook returns

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 18:02:37 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (illness) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Aug. 21, and he is questionable for the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has assumed many of the duties that Darren Sproles had in New Orleans' offense, and he has the speed to deliver big plays whenever he touches the ball. Consistency could be an issue for a rookie in an offense that tends to spread the wealth, but his upside is tough to ignore, especially in PPR formats. Draft him as a fourth or fifth receiver, but he has a chance to become a viable flex option.

Saints | Brandin Cooks still impressing

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 14:35:11 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks already has a play package designed specifically for him, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. Teammate CB Keenan Lewis said to make sure your shoes are tight when covering Cooks and FS Jairus Byrd said he is mature beyond his years.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has arguably been the most impressive and hyped offensive rookie this offseason. It's still hard to tell where he'll fit in with the likes of TE Jimmy Graham and WR Marques Colston in the mix, but it might be time to start giving Cooks more consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is worth a flier near the ends of drafts as a WR5.

Saints | Brandin Cooks' versatility excites Drew Brees

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 15:12:35 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks could be in line to replace RB Darren Sproles' production in his rookie season, according to QB Drew Brees. Brees noted that the team was creative with Sproles, using him out of the backfield, splitting him wide and using him on screen passes. Cooks was versatile and extremely productive in 2013 in college, and he's incredibly fast, has good hands and is strong after the catch. "Oh man, I've seen all the highlights, and that gets you excited," Brees said. "I think he can do a lot of things. I think he can play outside receiver. I think I he can play inside in the slot. You can hand him reverses. You can throw him screens. He can return punts."

Fantasy Tip: Remember, Cooks will be in his rookie season. Aside from that, he has big potential in this explosive offense. However, remember that Brees loves to spread the ball around to all his targets. Cooks is a fine late-round target with plenty of upside, but his chances may be few and far between.
