Saints | Brandin Cooks ready for rebound?

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:49:11 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had been averaging 94 yards and one touchdown per game at home this season before last week's debacle.

Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised to see Drew Brees and the Saints make a concerted effort to get Cooks the ball in Week 13. It might be easy to want to bench him this week after not being targeted last week, but the Saints and Detroit Lions could be involved in a shootout. You won't want Cooks on your bench if that occurs.

Saints | Brandin Cooks' blanking result of coverages

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 12:29:05 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not see a single target in a Week 12 rout of the Los Angeles Rams - a fact head coach Sean Payton suggested was "the result of some coverages". "There were certainly calls with his name and number on it, and periodically once in a while that (being held without a target) can happen," Payton said.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question the emergence of rookie Michael Thomas has played a role in it, but Cooks has been extremely hit-or-miss this season and required touchdowns to save his fantasy day. The third-year wideout has topped five catches and/or 66 yards only once since Week 6, falling below his season yards-per-catch average of 14.4 five times over that six-game span. As a result, Cooks is quickly fading into low-end WR2 territory.

Saints | Brandin Cooks not targeted once

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 21:18:32 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks did not have any receptions and he was not targeted once in the Week 12 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: There was no word on whether Cooks suffered some kind of injury, or if he was simply blanketed by the Rams causing Drew Brees to have to look elsewhere. Either way, it was an ugly goose egg of his legion of fantasy owners in a key week of action.

Saints | Brandin Cooks can't break big play

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 21:33:16 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks finished with seven catches for 42 yards and two carries for seven yards in a 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: It was an odd game for the speedy receiver, who had one of his worst outputs in terms of yards but tied his season high in catches. Expect a better line when the Saints take on the Rams in Week 12.

Saints | Brandin Cooks has monster game

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 17:21:42 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks hauled in seven receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks normally would have been the top dog in fantasy leagues this week, but Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants overshadowed him. Still, Cooks was pretty darn good. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 7 when the Fleur de Lis hits the road for Kansas City.

Saints | Brandin Cooks mostly contained

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 21:48:45 -0700

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks was targeted eight times in the Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons Monday, Sept. 26, but he posted just two receptions for 13 yards. He also carried once for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: It was a disappointing fantasy performance for Cooks considering there were a total of 77 points scored in the game. Cooks remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues until this kind of performance becomes a regularity. It won't.

Raiders | Sean Smith benched in Week 1

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:03:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders CB Sean Smith was benched midway through the third quarter of his team's Week 1 win against the New Orleans Saints after failing to get a bump on WR Brandin Cooks and getting burnt on his 98-yard touchdown catch. "I thought that he had a rough day, so we took him out. He'll be back. He's going to play well for us, but he didn't play well today," head coach Jack Del Rio said of the cornerback who signed a four-year, $40 million with the Raiders this spring.
