4. Brandin Cooks, WR-Saints
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why Brandin Cooks should be given a chance on your fantasy team.
With both Kenny Stills and Jimmy Graham being traded away, it’s obvious that the Saints are hoping for big things out of Cooks this year. Even as a rookie, it became clear that he was already one of Drew Brees’ favorite receivers, being targeted 70 times in 10 games before getting injured, while also being given some chances to run the ball out of the backfield.
His speed and big play ability is amazing and suits him well with a quarterback like Brees, who can throw downfield with ease. With Marques Colston fading, Cooks is now surely the number one receiver on the Saints.
