Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) returns for walkthrough

NOLA - [Full Article]

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Kenny Stills returned to the practice fields for Friday afternoon's walk-through at the Greenbrier resort.

Stills participated in the walk-through, jogging through several plays. The walk-though is non-contact and is conducted at less than full speed.

Stills suffered an injury one week ago during the Saints' first practice of the season. Saints coach Sean Payton described it as a quadriceps injury.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is an indication that his quad injury is not serious. Stills is one of our favorite sleepers. He figures to see a jump in snaps and targets after the Saints lost both Lance Moore and Darren Sproles, who saw a combined 143 targets last year. Stills should get at minimum the 5.5 T/G that Moore saw in the past three years, making him an intriguing WR3 with upside. The arrival of Brandin Cooks does take some of the wind out his sails, but that should only serve to keep his ADP at a reasonable level. Drew Brees had a QB rating of 139.3 when throwing to Stills, the highest in the league. He’s bound to improve as a second year receiver and is playing in one of the best pass offenses in the league. There’s a lot to like here.
