Dolphins acquired WR Kenny Stills from the Saints in exchange for LB Dannell Ellerbe and a 2015 third-round pick.
We're not sure what the Saints are thinking here. Stills is a soon-to-be 23-year-old playmaker with two years left on his contract at minimum salary. It's a great get for the Dolphins, who were going to cut Ellerbe and his inflated salary anyway. Stills isn't just a deep threat, either; he was fourth in the league among receivers with his 78.8 percent catch rate last season. Acquiring Stills may mean the end is near for Mike Wallace in Miami.

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports the Saints are trying to trade Kenny Stills.

We're not entirely sure how credible this report is, although Russini has a strong track record. Stills is cheap talent at wideout and isn't yet 23 years old. We'll believe the Saints are trying to trade him when we see it. What is clear is New Orleans' intention to remake its roster, particularly on offense.

Kenny Stills' most common route run in 2014 was a hitch.

As a rookie in 2013, Stills mostly ran vertical "go" routes. The Saints asked him to expand his tree last year and he responded with impressive execution. Drew Brees had a 112.0 passer rating when targeting Stills, who caught 74.1 percent of his targets and finished with a 63-931-3 line. Brandin Cooks will return to take away some of Stills' underneath looks, but there's still plenty to like here -- especially with Marques Colston nearing the end of the line.
Mar 3 - 10:40 AM

Kenny Stills caught 5-of-7 targets for 82 yards in the Saints' Week 17 win over the Bucs.

There was a scary moment when Stills went down with a left-leg injury in the second half, but he ended up missing little, if any, time. A true deep threat as a fifth-round rookie in 2013, Stills displayed a more polished overall skill-set as a sophomore, catching 63 passes for a team-leading 931 yards. Still has the speed to gain consistent separation downfield, but is also a proficient enough route runner to do work at the short-to-intermediate levels. He'll offer WR2 upside in 2015.

Kenny Stills caught 6-of-8 targets for 68 yards Week 16 against the Falcons.

Stills was able to get open underneath, but he was not able to get deep against the Falcons' secondary. Stills has become a big part of the Saints' offense with Brandin Cooks (thumb) on IR and is a good bet to see 7-10 targets against the Bucs in the Saints' season finale.

Kenny Stills caught five passes for 67 yards in the Saints' Week 15 win over the Bears.

He was targeted seven times, good enough to share the team lead with Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston. Stills ran most of his routes vs. Bears RCB Tim Jennings. He was left wide open on his long gain of 21 yards, but couldn't get anything going deep. Stills was also targeted once in the end zone. He'll likely do battle with stud Falcons LCB Desmond Trufant in Week 16.

Kenny Stills caught 3-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the Saints' Week 14 loss to the Panthers.

With the Panthers stymying the Saints' entire offense, Stills had his quietest game in a month. It was a supremely-disappointing day for a wideout who entered Week 14 as one of the league's hottest players, but owners will have to shake it off for Week 15, as Stills will be doing battle with the Bears' truly atrocious defense.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:18:00 PM

Kenny Stills caught five passes for 162 yards and one touchdown in the Saints' Week 13 win over the Steelers.

Stills was targeted a team-high six times on a day Drew Brees attempted just 27 passes. He was the clear No. 1 option with Jimmy Graham getting blanketed and seeing zero targets. On his 69-yard touchdown, CB Ike Taylor slipped and Stills coasted down the right sidelined and into the end zone. He was a must-start in daily at his basement price. Stills will be a legit WR3 with WR2 upside when the Saints host the Panthers in Week 14.

Kenny Stills played on 50-of-74 snaps (67.5 percent) in Monday night's loss to the Ravens.

In the first game since Brandin Cooks was lost for the season, Stills set career-highs in both catches (8) and targets (9). So even though his snap count didn't rise dramatically, his usage was the key note. As expected, Stills was no longer merely asked to run vertical clear-out routes -- instead getting high-percentage looks from Drew Brees. Given this new role, his extremely efficient skill set and a cupcake rest-of-season schedule, Stills is an excellent WR3 prospect.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 08:34:00 AM

Kenny Stills caught eight passes for 98 yards in the Saints' Week 12 loss to the Ravens.

Stills was targeted nine times, mostly on short routes allowing him to try and use his after-the-catch skills. The Ravens did a good job on the outside of keeping Stills in front of them. His big play was a 33-yard catch over the top of CB Danny Gorrer, as Stills wrestled the ball away from Gorrer while falling to the ground. Stills will be a solid WR3 in Pittsburgh against the Steelers in Week 13.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the Saints to rely more on Kenny Stills and Marques Colston with Brandin Cooks (thumb) out 2-4 weeks.

Stills was quietly one of the league's more impressive rookies last year. He hasn't been overly productive this year as he's executed the Devery Henderson/Robert Meachem vertical role, but he has shown well lately with 21 catches and two touchdowns over his last five games. Now ticketed for more high-percentage routes that Cooks left behind, Stills is a borderline WR3. Colston and Jimmy Graham also get ticks up.

Kenny Stills caught 4-of-4 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 11 loss to the Bengals.

Stills was a bright spot for the Saints this afternoon, hauling in their lone score. He showed good awareness around the goal line, taking a short catch around the edge and diving for the pylon. Stills now has at least four catches in four of his past five games. As far as WR4 dart throws go, he's got some upside.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 05:25:00 PM

Kenny Stills caught 3-of-6 targets for 26 yards in New Orleans' Week 10 loss to the 49ers.

Stills set the tone for his quiet day on the Saints' first play from scrimmage, as he committed a drop. A boom-or-bust WR4, Stills will trend more toward bust than boom against the Bengals in Week 11. Cincy is extremely vulnerable on the ground, but stouter through the air.

Kenny Stills (thigh) is listed as probable for Week 10.

He'll be good to go as a situational deep threat in the Saints' attack.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 04:10:00 PM

Kenny Stills (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Stills played through his thigh issue last week and shouldn't miss any time. He has at least 50 yards receiving or a touchdown in three straight games. Stills is a boom-or-bust WR4 for Week 10.
