2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
On a fantasy points per game basis, Nick Toon delivered similar production to Davante Adams, Donte Moncrief and Markus Wheaton in 2014. All of these players have an arrow pointing up as they continue to see more playing time. However, a case can be made that Toon is in the best situation to blossom in 2015. For starters, he is closer to the guys above him on the depth chart where an aging Colston and inexperienced Cooks reside. As a slot receiver, Toon will also be tasked to help fill the void of departed tight end Graham. Secondly, he has more size than the others previously mentioned. Standing at six-feet, four-inches and 218 pounds, Toon is comparable to Colston. He needs to earn the trust of Brees and prove he can handle more reps within the offense, but a slight improvement on Stillsí 2014 totals is not out of reach.

News From The Past 90 Days
Brandon Coleman has eyes on No.3 WR role
Expected to see first half action against Pats
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 18, 12:33 pm

New Orleans
We've always known Marques Colston and Brandin Cooks would be the top two in the order. There's no longer any real argument which player sits No. 3: Brandon Coleman. Sure Coleman still receives reps with the second unit and below at times. But the most popular three wide receiver sets through camp involve the "Three Cs." (Times Picayune)

FFToday's Take: Coleman didn't get an offensive snap in the first half of the Saints first preseason game but is expected to see more action in Week 2 against the Patriots. Momentum is building for Coleman to win the No.3 role. He's battling Nick Toon but for now it appears Coleman's job to lose.

Nick Toon has good shot at the No. 3 role
Expected to lineup in the "Z" position
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 7, 9:00 am

New Orleans
Buried on the depth chart for three seasons, Nick Toon finds himself staring at a wide-open path to playing time, cleared by the offseason departures of Kenny Stills, Jimmy Graham and Robert Meacham. Toon seems to have a good shot at the No. 3 role behind Cooks and Marques Colston this fall, if he can hold off a hard-charging group of young players and free agents. (New Orleans Advocate)

FFToday's Take: Toon is set to play the "Z" position in the Saints base offense but is capable of lining up at "X". He'll do well to gain WR4 as the third or perhaps fourth option in the Saints offense behind Cooks, Colston and tight end Josh Hill. He's a late-round flier in redraft leagues.

Brandin Cooks shines at Saints minicamp
"Cooks is the best player on offense"
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 17, 8:00 am

New Orleans
The roster is brimming with talented young receivers. Brandin Cooks is the best player on offense - hands down. He has another gear. The third receiver job is Nick Toon's to lose. Word of advice: Draft C.J. Spiller on your fantasy football team. The Saints are going to get him the ball in a number of ways this season. If he can stay healthy, he could have a breakout year. It certainly won't be for lack of opportunity. (

FFToday's Take: Note, these are beat writer Jeff Duncan's comments after the Saints first minicamp practice on Tuesday. The Saints will run the ball plenty with Mark Ingram but Cooks and Spiller could be heavily involved in the passing game. Spiller is going to be a player to target in PPR leagues.
