Kenny Stills sidelined by quad injury
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints receiver Kenny Stills left practice early Friday with a quad injury but Sean Payton doesn't believe it's a big deal. 

"He had a tight quad two weeks ago when he was training and it's the same right quad," Payton told the media Friday morning. "I dont think it's real serious."

Kenny Stills could have bigger role
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saints receiver Kenny Stills is having a good offseason, reports ESPN. And Stills could be in line for a bigger role this year.

The report said Stills looks like he’s ready to keep rising after a breakout rookie year when he had 32 catches for 641 yards and five touchdowns. Coach Sean Payton said after re-watching the film from last season, the Saints felt they needed to get Stills some more opportunities this year.

He is expected to compete with rookie Brandin Cooks for a starting role opposite Marques Colston.

Kenny Stills aims to avoid sophomore slump
by Larry Hartstein |

Saints receiver Kenny Stills is determined to avoid a sophomore slump after catching 32 passes for 641 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie, reports

"You know, in college, your second year they expect you to have a sophomore slump,” Stills told the website. "So that’s kind of the mentality I took to this offseason, making sure like in college you don’t have a sophomore slump. And just continuing to build and get better.

"I gained a few pounds, and my head’s been in this playbook. And I’m so focused just on football and enjoying myself and having fun. So I can’t wait for us to get going."

The Saints drafted blazing-fast receiver Brandin Cooks in the first round, which limits Stills' chance of a monster season. Cooks' presence, however, will free up Stills to run more short and intermediate routes, the report said.

Kenny Stills focused on learning, putting on weight
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Speaking at a charity softball game Wednesday, Saints receiver Kenny Stills said he's been "gaining a few pounds" and is focused on learning more about the offense. 

"There's definitely more that I can do," Stills said on the official team website when asked if there was more he could contribute this season. "I'm learning as much as I can and wherever they put me I'm going to be prepared to make plays."

Brandin Cooks could be the No. 1 rookie Fantasy receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Saints needed help at receiver after getting rid of Lance Moore and Darren Sproles this offseason, and they were aggressive in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Saints gave up the No. 27 and No. 91 picks to move up to No. 20 for Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks.

He will now become the third receiver for the Saints behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills, but he could end up as the No. 1 Fantasy receiver this season, even ahead of Sammy Watkins (Bills), Mike Evans (Buccaneers) and Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), who were all drafted ahead of him. Cooks landed with the best offense and best quarterback of that group.

We'll find out how the Saints plan to use Cooks, who has elite speed but is on the smallish side at 5-foot-10, 189 pounds. Think Tavon Austin of the Rams, but hope for DeSean Jackson at his best with the Eagles. And Cooks should fly on the turf at the Superdome.

I would only draft Cooks with a late-round flier in seasonal Fantasy leagues, but he's a late first round or early second-round pick in rookie-only formats. If the Saints use him the right way -- unlike how the Rams used Austin last year -- then he could be a sleeper in 2014.

As for Stills, don't panic with this move. He still has the chance for a breakout season as the starter opposite Colston. And Drew Brees definitely benefits with the addition of Cooks.
