New Orleans Saints WR Nick Toon seems to be the frontrunner to be the Saints' No. 3 wide receiver, according to ESPN.com's Mike Triplett. Triplett said Joe Morgan and Josh Morgan are also in the mix for the position.
Fantasy Tip: Toon will essentially replace Kenny Stills in the Saints' offense, so he should see a lot more time on the field than he did in 2014 when he caught a mere 17 catches for 215 yards and 1 touchdown. Take him as a WR5 at best in this year's drafts.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Spiller appears to fit the team's no-huddle style well, and Ingram isn't much of a receiver. Spiller could fall into the role that Darren Sproles did so well in NOLA. He's a low-end RB2 in PPR leagues, while Ingram is on par with that for the between-the-tackles work.

New Orleans Saints QB Garrett Grayson said he felt he performed well in rookie minicamp. "Obviously I made some rookie mistakes, some simple things," he said. "It just takes time in understanding the playbook. Once things get going and I fully understand, I won't make those mistakes. I feel like I threw the ball well. I made the proper checks, things like that. I was really happy with the weekend."

Fantasy Tip: Brees likely has a few more good years left in his career and will have some solid weapons to work with even though he lost Jimmy Graham. Brees should be a starting quarterback most weeks next season but may be risky against certain matchups.
