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.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas is third on the depth chart and may have some slight value in PPR leagues in good matchups. However, he doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Ingram has looked like a more decisive runner during the preseason, and the fact that he is being used a little in the passing game is encouraging. The Saints rotate their picks too frequently and throw the ball too much to make Ingram more than a RB4 on draft day, but when you do decide to roll the dice on one of New Orleans' running backs, Ingram looks like he has the most upside at this point.

New Orleans Saints LB Kasim Edebali has impressed teammates with his athleticism and pass-rush skills. "One guy I'd point out, Kasim Edebali," DE Junior Galette said Tueday, Aug. 19. "You know he's not really a rookie, I feel like. He's up there in age, 25 years old. He's a lot more mature than I was as a rookie. And the guy gets off the ball and he can play."
