Saints Beat: 1,200 yards is 'the floor' for WR Brandin Cooks
Nick Underhill on WR Brandin Cooks:
I would set the floor at 1,200 yards. I think he could even flirt with 1,500 if he has a couple big games. I think that having other weapons like Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener should help open things up for him. Fleener is a guy that can draw safety help, and Cooks was almost unguardable last season against single-high coverage. If that remains true, Cooks should be freed up for a few more shot plays.
1,200 yards would push Cooks into WR1 territory in both formats. The Saints spread the ball around, and the last receiver to crack the 1,200-yard mark was Marques Colston in 2007. Jimmy Graham cracked it twice in five seasons.
