Saints WR Brandin Cooks and WR Nick Toon look 'terrific'

Cooks and Toon "have looked terrific throughout camp," according to ESPN's Mike Triplett. With Saints WR Kenny Stills @KSTiLLS missing time with a quad injury, Cooks and Toon have impressed coaches with the extra reps they're seeing. Saints head coach Sean Payton identified Toon in particular as a player having a "fantastic camp." Second-year WR Stills and third-year man Toon are vying for playing time in a Saints passing attack that has produced 5,000 yards for three straight seasons.

Fantasy Analysis:

Cooks was the Saints first-round pick in the 2014 draft, and has been talked up quite a bit as a player who could have a fantasy impact in his rookie year. The former former Oregon State WR turned heads with a lightning-fast 4.33 40-yard dash at the draft combine. Toon, on the other hand, is a relative sleeper in fantasy. The Saints 6-foot-4 fourth-rounder from 2012 was placed on injured reserve his first season, then caught just four balls in eight games his second year. But with WR Lance Moore and prolific pass-catching RB Darren Sproles joining other teams this year, Saints QB Drew Brees @drewbrees will be eager to develop new threats to complement veteran WR Marques Colston @MarquesColston and stud TE Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham in his high-flying passing attack. Don't be surprised to see either or both of Cooks and Toon develop into valuable fantasy commodities this season.
