Cooks caught five of his eight targets for 98 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Redskins. He also gained 11 yards on his lone carry. The second-year wideout provided all of the Saints' offense on the day, catching a short score in the first quarter before torching the Redskins for a 60-yarder in the second. Cooks has now caught five touchdowns in his last three games and has averaged over 80 yards receiving in the last six. The speedster will look to continue his recent success in Week 12 against the Texans, following next week's bye.
Cooks caught 4-of-6 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Titans. The second-year receiver started the season slowly, but he now has three touchdowns in the last two weeks after scoring just once in his first seven games. With quarterback Drew Brees also heating up of late, Cooks makes for an enticing play against the Redskins next week.
Cooks caught six of his eight targets for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Giants. The second-year wideout, who put up his second-most productive line of the season in terms of catches and yards, also caught multiple touchdown passes for the first time in his career. Big things were expected of Cooks this season and, while he as been a bit of a disappointment to date, he has experienced a noticeable uptick in production over the past month. Cooks will look to keep this positive momentum rolling as the Saints host the Texans in Week 9.
Cooks snagged six passes for 81 yards off of 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Colts. Cooks leads the Saints in both catches and targets and ranks second in yards behind fellow young speedster Willie Snead. Cooks' ability thus far to translate his swift feet to big plays should be exciting for fantasy owners. Through the season's first seven games, Cooks has six catches of 20 or more yards, including a 44-yarder on Sunday, after collecting just four such catches all of last year. While he's well on his way to topping his rookie totals in catches and yards, he may need some help going above last year's three touchdowns. Cooks has just one score thus far this season and the Saints have more rushing scores, 10, than passing scores eight thus far this season.
Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks had five catches on nine targets for 107 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Eagles. The breakout finally arrived for Cooks, who had failed to reach even 80 yards in a game this season. His touchdown was his first since Week 9 of last season. New Orleans continues to struggle and could be playing from behind quite a bit this season, which only means more available targets for Cooks. Up next is a quick turnaround to face Atlanta on Thursday.
