Huddle Up: The 2014 first-round pick got off to a strong start (53-550-3) before a wrist injury cut short his rookie campaign after 10 games. Now with TE Jimmy Graham gone and fellow WR Marques Colston not getting any younger, the sky's the fantasy limit for Cooks.

Huddle Up: Cooks averaged six touches and 62.3 yards from scrimmage with four total TDs in 10 games last season in a rookie campaign cut short by a wrist injury but definitely look for much more from the second-year wideout with the Saints' perennial top target -- TE Jimmy Graham -- over the last few seasons now in Seattle.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
