Saints' Brandin Cooks: Held to two catches
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cooks caught two passes on eight targets for 13 yards in Monday night's loss to the Falcons.

On a night where the Saints accumulated 491 yards of total offense, Cooks was shockingly absent from the fireworks. Although his eight targets are evidence of Cooks' involvement, Drew Brees was simply unable to hook up with the young speedster, as the Falcons' defensive scheme appeared predicated on stopping him. Instead, tight end Coby Fleener and receivers Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman combined for 21 grabs, and even little-used wideout Tommylee Lewis caught three passes for 43 yards. With Brees unafraid to spread the ball around to whoever is open, these type of letdown performances are always a possibility for Cooks, but in the Saints' high-powered offense, he should be a top-end fantasy option more weeks than not.

Saints' Brandin Cooks: Two touchdowns Sunday in loss to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cooks caught six of nine targets for 143 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's loss to the Raiders. He also gained 11 yards on his loan carry of the game.

Cooks was outstanding Sunday, as he tied for the team-lead in targets while setting a new career-high in yardage, thanks largely to a 98-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. Cooks has improved from year to year throughout his career and could be in for a big year with both Willie Snead and rookie Michael Thomas also drawing the attention of opposing defenses. Week 2 will bring with it a favorable matchup against the Giants.

Saints' Brandin Cooks: Expected to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cooks is expected to take the field for Friday's contest against the Steelers, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Cooks posted one reception for 37 yards in Week 1 of the preseason. He sat out the next week, as head coach Sean Payton was looking to get other receivers some work with quarterback Drew Brees. Week 3 is typically the biggest dress rehearsal for the regular season, so Cooks could see a relatively decent amount of time on the field.

Saints' Brandin Cooks: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks won't take the field for Saturday's preseason game at Houston, John DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.

Joining Cooks on the sideline is Willie Snead, which indicates that head coach Sean Payton wants quarterback Drew Brees to work with some of the less experienced hands in the receiving corps. As a result, expect Brandon Coleman and Michael Thomas to serve as the starting WR tandem Saturday.

Saints' Brandin Cooks: Gains 37 yards on only catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks (undisclosed) hauled in his only target for a 37-yard gain in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots.

Cooks missed some practice time with an undisclosed injury last week, but it's apparently no long a concern. His reception came on Drew Brees' only pass attempt of the night, as the Saints didn't ask much of their veterans in the preseason opener. Cooks will reprise his role as the No. 1 wideout in a high-powered offense, but he does have a bit more competition for targets, following the offseason additions of TE Coby Fleener and rookie second-rounder Michael Thomas.
