2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
The youth movement in New Orleans is headlined by Brandin Cooks. The team jettisoned two of Brees’ most dangerous targets in Stills and Graham. Additionally, the impending decline of Marques Colston as he enters the twilight of his career means Cooks will be asked to do a lot more during his sophomore season. The early reports from training camp have been positive. Cooks appears fully recovered from a thumb injury that ended his season a year ago, and he is gaining confidence as he prepares for a larger role in the offense. The Saints have had at least 650 passing attempts in each of the past five seasons. As long as Brees continues to lead the charge, Cooks should easily blow past the century mark in targets during the 2015 regular season. Even as the team’s top wideout, a bullish fantasy owner should not overlook the lack of size when evaluating Cooks’ touchdown potential for this season. Brees will still rely on the steadiness of Colston and size of TE Josh Hill and/or Ben Watson when the team doesn’t decide to run the ball inside the 10-yard line. A strong WR2 in most formats, Cooks is already flying up draft boards as one of the league’s preseason “buzz” players.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Cooks practices Friday, listed as Probable
Did he really have a concussion?
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 11, 2:15 pm

New Orleans
Saints WR Brandin Cooks probable after being cleared through concussion protocol. Sean Payton described it is mostly precaution ... Saints Sean Payton said Cooks felt some dizziness, showed concussion symptoms during Wednesday's practice so they put him through testing. (Mike Triplett on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooks owners can breathe a sigh of relief. It appears the Saints No.1 wideout will be available this week although make sure to check the Inactives on Sunday to be sure. It's likely he never had a concussion.


Injury Cooks misses practice Thursday with concussion
Injury likely suffered in Wednesday practice
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 10, 5:40 pm

New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints might be heading into Tampa with a beaten and battered offense. WR Brandin Cooks, who leads the Saints in all main receiving categories, missed practice Thursday due to a concussion, a new injury for the receiver. In addition, LT Terron Armstead (knee), RG Jahri Evans (ankle) and RT Zach Strief (shoulder) all missed practice due to injury. (The Advocate)

FFToday's Take: The blog makes no mention of Willie Snead, who missed last week with a calf injury, or Mark Ingram, who was placed on IR on Wednesday. Cooks has virtually no shot at playing against the Bucs this weekend after suffering a mid-week concussion, meaning Ben Watson and Snead (if he can play) candidates for 10-plus targets. Especially after the loss of Ingram and (in all likelihood) Cooks, Tampa Bay is looking like a solid streaming D/ST option this week.
