    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks said he plans to work out with QB Drew Brees this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Cooks, the Saints' first-round pick, got off to strong start (53 catches-550 yards-3 TDs) -- along with many of his other rookie WR brethren -- but saw the campaign cut short after 10 games by a wrist injury. He's a player to keep an eye on in fantasy drafts this summer as he might fall lower than he should due to his truncated first season.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) was placed on season-ending Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Way-too early end to a strong first season for the first-round pick who ranks second on the team in receptions (53), receiving yards and (550) and TD catches (3). Kenny Stills, Marques Colston and Robert Meachem should get more looks in his absence.

    Updating a previous report, New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Nov. 17, and could miss four to six weeks.

    Huddle Up: That means Cooks would return in Week 16 at the earliest. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to keep Cooks around unless they have deep rosters. Kenny Stills should be picked up in all leagues. He'll benefit the most from Cooks being out.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (thumb) will miss two to four weeks due to a broken thumb.

    Huddle Up: That's a major kink in the game plan for the struggling Saints. The rookie has been electric in home games and already is a preferred target for Drew Brees.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks has been targeted 22 times in just two home games so far this year. He totaled eight catches for 74 yards in Week 3 and nine catches for 56 yards in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Like the rest of the Saints' offense, Cooks is better in the Big Easy, and the early schedule hasn't done them any favors with 4 of their first 6 on the road. That, of course, means that 6 of their final 10 will be at home, starting with Sunday night's game against the Pack.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks had seven receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons Sunday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Most importantly, Drew Brees looked perfectly comfortable throwing to the rookie; going forward, he'll be an integral part of one of the more prolific passing games in the NFL.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks (illness) did not play in the team's preseason game Sunday, Aug. 24, due to illness. Cooks took part in warmups, and said he could have played if necessary.

    Huddle Up: Doesn't sound like anything to worry about for one of the hottest young commodities on fantasy draft boards.

    New Orleans Saints WR Brandin Cooks has been the star of training camp thus far. He caught six passes in the scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 2.

    Huddle Up: Outside of Marques Colston, the Saints' WR corps has lacked usable fantasy material in recent seasons, but the speedy first-round draft pick could change all that this season. Cooks currently owns the fourth-highest rookie ADP, going in the 10th round, on average, in standard-size, 10-team leagues.

    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."

    Huddle Up: Cooks has plenty of speed, and as Brees noted the Saints know what to do to free up a speedy receiver and get him the ball in space. Cooks taking over the Sproles role also frees up Kenny Stills to take over the Lance Moore/Devery Henderson role in New England's offense--and both roles could see an uptick in looks if the Jimmy Graham contract dispute isn't resolved in a manner that gets Graham back on the field for the start of the season.
