Saints | Brandin Cooks dazzles

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 20:54:27 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had four catches for 117 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown, in a preseason game against the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks should be a safe option as a WR2 this season, and he has a ton of upside thanks to his big-play ability.

Saints | Brandin Cooks wants to play faster

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 12:36:07 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks expects to play at a faster pace in his second season in the NFL. Cooks said he's ahead of where he was last offseason from a mental standpoint and feels that he has unfinished business following a shortened rookie season due to a broken thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is the go-to guy in the Saints offense now with Jimmy Graham out of the picture. He figures to be the No. 1 wide receiver in New Orleans with Marques Colston on the downward trend at this point in his career. Cooks should be drafted as a WR2 with added value in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | Brandin Cooks to have big year?

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 15:12:19 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks is primed for a breakout year, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett. Triplett believes Cooks can attain 100 catches or 1,000 yards with TE Jimmy Graham and WR Kenny Stills now out of the picture.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks seems to be the go-to guy in the Saints' prolific passing offense with Graham and Stills out of town and Colston past his prime. Cooks will have plenty of opportunities to break out in 2015 and should see more than his fair share of targets. If he can stay healthy, he has WR2 potential.

Saints | Brandin Cooks spent time with QB

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 20:32:44 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (knee) spent time training together with QB Drew Brees during the offseason in San Diego. "Man, I love everything about him, his makeup, and then just his physical ability. I mean he's got all kinds of talent," Brees said.

Fantasy Tip: With Jimmy Graham having been dealt to Seattle, Cooks will have a prominent role in the offense. He is expected to start alongside Marques Colston, and could very well be the No. 1 receiving option in the offense if he isn't that already. Consider him a top-flight WR2 entering the season, as he makes his way back from a knee injury. He could emerge as a low-end WR1 by season's end for fantasy owners.

Saints | Brandin Cooks set for big role

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 16:24:14 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks will be atop the depth chart with WR Marques Colston to enter the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks could be a big-time breakout candidate after playing in the slot most of his solid rookie season. Look at Cooks as a premium WR3 with WR2 potential.

Saints | Brandin Cooks to work with Drew Brees

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 13:20:52 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks said he plans to work out with QB Drew Brees this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks caught at least five passes in eight games this season but only recorded three touchdowns during the season. Cooks could receive a better role in the passing game, so he could be considered a low-end No. 2 wide receiver or a No. 3 with high upside in drafts next season. Cooks probably will have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Saints | Kenny Stills stepping up

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 19:03:22 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Kenny Stills has tallied 13 catches for 260 yards and a touchdown in two games since WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) went down with a season-ending thumb injury.

Fantasy Tip: Drew Brees' tendency to spread the wealth makes any receiver for the Saints somewhat of a risk. That being said, Stills ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has a lot of upside for the price, making him a solid option at FantasyScore in Week 14 when New Orleans takes on a Carolina team ranked in the middle of the pack against the pass.

Saints | Brandin Cooks placed on IR

Tue, 18 Nov 2014 14:29:20 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks' absence could breathe new life into Marques Colston, while Jimmy Graham, Kenny Stills and Travaris Cadet figure to see more targets as well. Colston is an especially intriguing play on FantasyScore in Week 12 with an attractively low price of $4,600 in a tasty matchup with the Baltimore Ravens.

Saints | Brandin Cooks may miss 4-6 weeks

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 10:39:08 -0800

Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Nov. 17, and could miss four to six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks probably will not be able to return until late in December, so owners in shallow leagues can consider dropping him. Marques Colston, Kenny Stills and Travaris Cadet could receive more targets with Cooks out, which helps their fantasy value. All three players could be at least flex options in Week 12.

Saints | Brandin Cooks out 2-4 weeks

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 07:55:40 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) will miss two to four weeks due to a broken thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Kenny Stills is likely to benefit from Cooks' absence. Stills is a good flex option at the right price on FantasyScore. Marques Colston could also work his way back into fantasy viability.
