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.

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks already has a play package designed specifically for him, according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport. Teammate CB Keenan Lewis said to make sure your shoes are tight when covering Cooks and FS Jairus Byrd said he is mature beyond his years.
Fantasy Tip: Cooks has arguably been the most impressive and hyped offensive rookie this offseason. It's still hard to tell where he'll fit in with the likes of TE Jimmy Graham and WR Marques Colston in the mix, but it might be time to start giving Cooks more consideration.

New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks could be in line to replace RB Darren Sproles' production in his rookie season, according to QB Drew Brees. Brees noted that the team was creative with Sproles, using him out of the backfield, splitting him wide and using him on screen passes. Cooks was versatile and extremely productive in 2013 in college, and he's incredibly fast, has good hands and is strong after the catch. "Oh man, I've seen all the highlights, and that gets you excited," Brees said. "I think he can do a lot of things. I think he can play outside receiver. I think I he can play inside in the slot. You can hand him reverses. You can throw him screens. He can return punts."
Fantasy Tip: Remember, Cooks will be in his rookie season. Aside from that, he has big potential in this explosive offense. However, remember that Brees loves to spread the ball around to all his targets. Cooks is a fine late-round target with plenty of upside, but his chances may be few and far between.
