Patriots | Brandin Cooks most successful in Superdome

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 18:51:49 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks played 21 games at home in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and 21 games on the road during his first three seasons in the league with the New Orleans Saints. While his receptions and targets were split pretty evenly, he accumulated 1,644 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns in the Superdome, compared to 1,217 yards and seven touchdowns in away contests.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't deter owners from being high on Cooks going into the 2017 campaign, as it's just something to think about, since he'll be playing more in outdoor weather. Despite these splits, however, Cooks figures to have the potential to be a WR1, considering he still has a top quarterback throwing to him, and the fact that the Patriots have remarkably been amongst the three highest-scoring teams in each of the past seven seasons.

Patriots | New England to lose new pick

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 20:33:35 -0800

The New England Patriots will lose the fourth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft acquired from the New Orleans Saints as part of the trade for WR Brandin Cooks, according to multiple reports. Part of the Patriots' punishment for the deflated balls scandal was the loss of their highest pick in the fourth round, and the pick acquired from New Orleans is No. 118 while New England's own fourth-round pick is No. 132.

Eagles | Philly made solid offer for Brandin Cooks

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 16:40:55 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles S Malcolm Jenkins was part of a package the team used in attempt to acquire former New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks before he was traded to the New England Patriots. The Eagles offered Jenkins, a 2017 third-round pick and a 2017 fourth-round pick, but the Saints wanted a second-round pick plus Jenkins.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints ultimately settled on a first- and third-round pick from the Patriots in exchange for Cooks and a fourth-rounder. Especially considering how deep this year's draft is and the fact Jenkins spent the first five years of his career in New Orleans, it is a bit hard to believe the Saints accepted the Patriots' offer over the Eagles'. Nevertheless, Cooks should be a solid albeit slightly inconsistent WR2 in fantasy with New England in 2017.

Patriots | Cold weather to slow Brandin Cooks?

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 19:47:06 -0800

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has caught 16 of his 20 career receiving touchdowns in warm weather stadiums and domes.

Fantasy Tip: Those numbers likely have more to do with Cooks playing his home games in the Superdome than anything else, and he should do just fine as one of Tom Brady's main targets. Grab him as a WR2 and enjoy.

Saints | New Orleans trades Brandin Cooks

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 17:04:55 -0800

The New Orleans Saints have traded WR Brandin Cooks and a 2017 fourth-round pick to the New England Patriots in exchange for a 2017 first-round pick and a 2017 third round pick, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and Coby Fleener should all receive bigger roles in the passing game with Cooks gone. Thomas finished 2016 with 1,137 yards and nine touchdowns and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver. Snead nearly reached 900 yards this season and was third on the team with 72 catches. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver. Fleener struggled in his first year with the Saints and is probably a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

Patriots | New England acquires Brandin Cooks

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 16:47:51 -0800

The New England Patriots have acquired WR Brandin Cooks and a 2017 fourth-round pick from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a 2017 first-round pick and a 2017 third round pick, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks will be going from one of the top offenses to another and should be one of the top targets for the Patriots in 2017. He has recorded at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and has 17 touchdowns during that span. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks talks heating up

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 07:42:38 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks is in trade talks with the New England Patriots, who are considering sending CB Malcolm Butler to New Orleans for Cooks.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has averaged 81 catches for 1,156 yards and 8.5 touchdowns the last two years. His numbers could suffer if he goes to New England, though, because there are a number of others to target. They also haven't thrown the ball deep much in a couple of years. Cooks is a WR2 in fantasy, but his upside is larger in New Orleans.

Patriots | NE rebuffed in trade offer for Brandin Cooks

Sat, 04 Mar 2017 17:47:35 -0800

The New England Patriots offered their first-round draft pick (No. 32 overall) in exchange for New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks but were turned down, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints are reportedly holding out for a mid-first round pick. At least five teams have made overtures for Cooks per the Times-Picayune, so his market is robust. With Cooks still playing on his rookie contract, he's going to remain in high demand. Expect New Orleans to revisit a deal after the start of free agency when it may be able to take advantage of a receiver-needy team which missed out on the likes of Alshon Jeffery or Terrelle Pryor.

Saints | Brandin Cooks price a first rounder?

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 07:31:35 -0800

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks can be landed in a trade for a first-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has averaged 81 catches for 1,156 yards and 8.5 touchdowns the last two years. He'll be 24 this season and has plenty to like as a WR2 in fantasy.

Saints | Second rounder for Brandin Cooks?

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 06:49:44 -0800

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks can likely be acquired for a second-round pick, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It's a bit curious that a young receiver knocking on the door of WR1 status can be landed for a second rounder. Cooks has averaged 81 catches for 1,156 yards and 8.5 touchdowns the last two years. However, leaving New Orleans doesn't seem like the best recipe for honing untapped potential. He's a high-end WR2 in fantasy.
