Saints | Brandin Cooks has big game on MNF

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 22:51:03 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks posted 10 receptions for 124 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 21. He was targeted 13 times.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks had just one 100-yard game over his first 11, but he has hit the century mark twice in the past three games while finding the end zone seven times in the past seven games. He has re-emerged as a must-have WR2 in all fantasy formats.

Saints | Brandin Cooks not involved

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 17:10:57 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks finished with three catches on five targets for 29 yards in a 24-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: After a hot stretch, Cooks has now delivered two duds in his last three games. He still has solid upside, but he isn't a must-start at FantasyScore by any means.

Saints | Brandin Cooks listed as probable

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 13:15:12 -0800

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (head) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 11, and is probable to play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, according to head coach Sean Payton.

Fantasy Tip: Well then. It seemed doubtful that Cooks ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) would miss Week 14 when he suffered an apparent concussion in practice yesterday. But it wasn't that serious and he's already been cleared. The Bucs are a top-10 PPR matchup for receivers, so Cooks is a strong FantasyScore play now that he's good to go.

Saints | Brandin Cooks will play

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 11:24:52 -0800

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (dizziness) apparently did not have a concussion, and he has been cleared to play Sunday, Dec. 13, according to head coach Sean Payton. Cooks experienced dizziness Wednesday, Dec. 9, but he has cleared the concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: There's a bit of a surprise. Cooks ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is a solid WR2 on FantasyScore against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Saints | Brandin Cooks at practice

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 10:53:45 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) took part in the early portion of practice Friday, Dec. 11, after he was ruled out with a concussion the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Fridays are generally walkthroughs, so it's still unlikely he plays against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brandon Coleman ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a 4-73-1 game last week and could be a basement flyer on FantasyScore.

Saints | Brandin Cooks suffers concussion in practice

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 15:30:59 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) missed practice Thursday, Dec. 10, due to a concussion. It is not yet known when the concussion took place but it makes him doubtful for Sunday, Dec. 13, versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: This is horrendous news because with Cooks ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) popping up on the injury report for the first time late in the week with his concussion, it seems highly unlikely he'll suit up Sunday. Willie Snead ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has also been limited so if he can't go, Marques Colston ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Brandon Coleman ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could end up being diamonds in the rough for fantasy owners.

Saints | Brandin Cooks keeps rolling

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 17:43:17 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had five catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns and one carry for 11 yards in a 47-14 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has five touchdowns in his last three games, and after a bit of a slow start to the year, he is starting to live up to expectations.

Saints | Brandin Cooks heating up

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 16:15:27 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had four catches for 71 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: After a mediocre start to the year, Cooks ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has topped 70 yards in four of his last five games and has four touchdowns during the stretch. With the Saints rolling on offense, Cooks has become a solid starting option at FantasyScore.

Saints | Brandin Cooks continues upward trend

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 19:17:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks posted six receptions for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the New York Giants. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) managed just 20 catches for 215 yards with no touchdowns through the first four games, but he has 21 grabs for 317 yards and three scores in the past four outings. He has been targeted at least seven times in seven of his eight games and remains a strong FantasyScore option. However, he faces the NFL's No. 2 pass defense in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans, so start him at your own peril.
