Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) is listed as probable for this weekend's game against the Browns.  He put in a full practice on Friday, so it looks like he's at or near 100%.  We'd still shy away from getting Stills into Week 2 fantasy lineups, but he should be rostered in all fantasy leagues.  His return puts a slight dent in WR Brandin Cooks' Week 2 outlook.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) was limited in practice again on Thursday.  It's good news that he was able to practice 2 straight days -- something he didn't do last week -- but he remains iffy for this weekend's game against the Browns.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) was limited in Wednesday's practice.  He put in limited workouts on Wednesday and Friday last week before sitting out the opener.  Consider him questionable for this Sunday's game against the Browns.  We'll update his status again tomorrow.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) has been ruled out for Sunday's opener against the Falcons.  Stills put in a couple limited practices this week, but the Saints are being smart to hold him out until he's back to 100%.  Upgrade WR Brandin Cooks with Stills out this week.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s opener against the Falcons. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday. Stills says that if it was up to him, he’d play. We’d rather see him give that quad another week to heal. Even if he plays on Sunday, he’s too risky to use in fantasy.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) was held out of Thursday's practice after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday.  He's having trouble shaking this quad injury and seems unlikely to play against the Falcons this weekend.

Saints WR Kenny Stills believes his injured quad will be a "primary focus" throughout the season, according to insider Ramon Vargas.  The injury requires rest, but "there’s no time I’m not doing anything," Stills said.  It's certainly a concern for his 2014 fantasy output and will need to be monitored all year.  The good news is that you got Stills for dirt cheap in your draft.  He'll have plenty of upside whenever he's on the field.

Saints WR Kenny Stills (quad) was limited in Wednesday’s practice.  We’ll have a better read on his game day status as the week progresses, but at this time, consider him 50/50 to face Atlanta on Sunday.  Even if the 2nd-year WR is active, he’ll be a risky WR3 in fantasy.

Saints insider Mike Triplett considers WR Kenny Stills (quad) questionable for Week 1.  Stills missed most of camp with that quad injury and then aggravated it in this past weekend's preseason game.  Even if he plays in the opener against Atlanta, he'll be a risky WR3 play.  We still like him as a value pick in the double-digit rounds of drafts.

Saints WR Kenny Stills made his preseason debut on Saturday but left the game after aggravating his quad injury.  The quad kept Stills out for a couple weeks of training camp earlier this month.  The fact that he can't shake it is definitely a concern.  The good news is that Stills can be had in the 11th round of drafts, so you're not risking much to grab him.  When healthy, Stills will present big weekly upside as an efficient WR on a high-powered passing attack.

Saints insider Mike Triplett writes that WR Kenny Stills looked like a "go-to-guy" for QB Drew Brees this spring.  Triplett adds that Stills is "clearly ready to play a bigger role in the Saints’ offense this year."  The 2013 rookie finished 6th on the team with 51 targets.  With RB Darren Sproles and WR Lance Moore now out of the picture, Stills will climb in the pecking order, perhaps even emerging as a top-3 option in the attack.  While Triplett predicts Stills' yards-per-catch average will drop from last year's 20, he believes his receptions will go "way up."  Triplett throws out a projection of 800 yards and 5 or 6 TDs for Stills this season.  We like him to produce even more than that.

The Saints are "hoping" WR Kenny Stills emerges as a "faster Lance Moore" in 2014, according to insider Larry Holder.  "I can't see Stills averaging 20 yards per reception like last season," Holder adds. "That's not a knock on Stills, though. I anticipate his role to be more well-rounded in 2014."  Stills was more than just a deep threat last season, posting a 70% catch rate, committing just 1 drop and averaging 6.1 yards after the catch.  He's plenty capable of handling that "more well-rounded" role this season.  Moore averaged 90 targets per 16 games as New Orleans’ #2 WR over the past 4 seasons.  That's a fair projection for Stills in 2014, giving him high-end WR3 potential.

The Saints snagged WR Brandin Cooks after trading up to #20.  New Orleans had quietly gotten thin at WR.  Cooks has a good chance to slide right in as the 3rd receiver behind Marques Colston and Kenny Stills.  The Oregon St. product racked up 195 receptions,  2,881 yards and 21 TDs over the past 2 years.  He did most of that damage outside the numbers, despite going just 5'10 and 189 pounds.  This guy has big-time speed and explosion, ranking among the top WRs in the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle at the Combine.  He'll struggle for consistent targets in 2014 but has tons of long-term fantasy upside.  Colston turns 31 in June.

Saints insider Mike Triplette says the team is "comfortable" with Kenny Stills as the #2 WR.  The 5th-rounder was a big-play machine in his 2013 rookie campaign, averaging 20 yards per catch on his 32 grabs.  Stills played 61% of New Orleans' snaps last year.  With Lance Moore out of the picture, that number should rise into the 70s or 80s in 2014.  A bump in targets will follow.  Stills' deep-threat profile might make him inconsistent in fantasy, but he'll have tons of weekly upside.

Saints WR Marques Colston (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets.  We don’t have any details on the injury, but Colston has a lengthy history of knee issues.  His absence should mean a few extra targets for Kenny Stills, Lance Moore and Nick Toon.  Stills and Moore are both viable WR3 plays in fantasy. 

The Saints released veteran WRs Patrick Crayton and Steve Breaston on Monday.  That indicates the team is pleased with the early work of 2nd-year WR Nick Toon and rookie WR Kenny Stills.  Neither young guy presents immediate fantasy value, but both stand just an injury away from sleeper potential in arguably the league's most explosive passing game.

Saints insider Jeff Duncan calls rookie Kenny Stills the Saints' #3 WR "until further notice."  Duncan says WR Steve Breaston will push for the spot and doesn't even mention WR Nick Toon.  It's surprising considering Toon is more familiar with the offense than either Stills or Breaston.  Toon also drew rave reviews early in training camp.  We'll be keeping a close eye on the situation in New Orleans' preseason opener against the Chiefs tonight.  The winner of this battle will be an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
