Saints encouraged by progress of Khiry Robinson
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Saints have become encouraged over the progress made by second-year running back Khiry Robinson this season, the Baton Rouge Advocate is reporting.

Robinson has only managed mediocre numbers with 59 yards on 14 carries this season. But Sean Payton is happy with how he has approached his opportunities.

"Towards the end (of last season) there he had a hot hand with regards to just the idea of measuring or grading his run decisions," Payton said. "Certainly he is further along here in year two with his whole game. ... He understands fronts more, where plays are designed to go more and also the protections."

Robinson has been particularly impressive reading blocks and showing patience waiting for holes to open.

"I think he's becoming a smarter runner," tackle Zach Strief said. "He's very naturally talented. He has a lot of abilities ... but there's a lot that goes into running the ball in this league."

Fantasy Analysis | 1411068543
Brandin Cooks to shine in Week 3
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Brandin Cooks gets to finally play his first home game in New Orleans and we're expecting a fireworks display from this passing attack after the down game in Cleveland in Week 2. 

Marques Colston and Cooks were held to three catches for 17 yards combined while Cooks added two carries for 31 yards.

Look for New Orleans to come out throwing, so start Colston and Cooks in the majority of leagues. The good news for Cooks is he had 14 targets through two games, along with three carries, so the Saints are trying to get the ball in his hands.

We think a similar game plan will lead to big rewards in this matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
