Robert Meachem compares Brandin Cooks to Percy Harvin - [Full Article]

Saints WR Robert Meachem compared WR Brandin Cooks' athleticism to that of Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin, who when healthy was one of the NFL's most dangerous weapons.

"He's quick and he's fast. He's one of those guys you can put at any position and be an athlete like we used to do with (Darren Sproles), like we used to do with (Reggie Bush)," Meachem said. "You just put him in certain situations and let him be an athlete. You give him the ball and say 'Do what you do.'

"You have the Percy Harvins of the league, and you just say 'Do what you do.' Let him play ball."

Fantasy Impact: 

The Saints spread the ball around, but not only do they have to replace the departed Lance Moore, the team has to also replace the production of Darren Sproles in the receiving game. The two combined for 143 targets in 2013, so while we're expecting Kenny Stills to see a larger role, there are targets for the speedy Cooks as well.
