Two injuries have robbed fantasy football owners of great players. So far, Jordy Nelson and Kelvin Benjamin have been lost for the upcoming year; fortunately for fantasy players, wide receiver is the deepest position.

Can the Saints' Brandin Cooks 'shock the world?'

The Saints are now back home, wrapping up the last week of training camp in New Orleans, enduring the heat by downing salt tablets and hydration drinks.

Perhaps part of the answer starts with 21-year-old Brandin Cooks, the franchise's first round draft pick last season out of Oregon State.

Brandin Cooks says there's 'no doubt' he can be the Saints' main weapon

With the 20th overall pick, the New Orleans Saints select Brandin Cooks, wide receiver, Oregon State.
