Kenny Stills (quad) returned to Saints practice Sunday.
Stills suffered the quad injury very early in camp, and the Saints were especially cautious about bringing him back. He missed each of the first two preseason games. Stills is currently going in the 11th round of standard drafts. Rookie teammate Brandin Cooks' ADP has meanwhile skyrocketed into the sixth. Aug 17 - 5:47 PM

Kenny Stills (quad) remains sidelined at Saints camp.

Stills went down last Friday, so he's missed almost a week. His absence has led to more opportunities for overwhelmingly impressive rookie Brandin Cooks, and third-year WR Nick Toon, whom coach Sean Payton claims has been "terrific." Stills is fighting for Drew Brees' looks, so he needs to get back on there.

Saints WR Kenny Stills is not practicing on Saturday after suffering a quad injury in Friday's practice.

Coach Sean Payton said Stills had felt similar tightness in the quad two weeks before. The injury seems minor, but there is no timetable for his return. Stills is expected to fill the No. 2 receiver role vacated by Lance Moore this season.

Coach Sean Payton said he feels he needs to get WR Kenny Stills more opportunities this season.

Still was targeted 46 times last regular season, good for sixth-most on the team. With the release of Lance Moore and trade of Darren Sproles, that opens up 136 targets for Stills and first-round rookie Brandin Cooks. Cooks is expected to help replace Sproles, while Stills should vault into the No. 2 receiver role vacated by Moore. Stills' targets may not dramatically rise as only the fourth or fifth option in the passing game, though 70 could be achievable. He has WR3/4 upside.

The NFL's best QB rating when throwing to a single wide receiver last season was Drew Brees to Kenny Stills (139.3).

Don't underestimate Stills' rookie season just because he only had 32 catches. He dropped just one pass on 51 targets, led the NFL in yards per catch (20.0) and turned five of his grabs into touchdowns. He was extremely efficient while also producing big plays, a surefire sign of chemistry. Now ticketed for a bigger role in the wake of Lance Moore's release, Stills carries plenty of upside into his second season.

ESPN's Mike Triplett expects the Saints to come away from the draft with at least one receiver.

The Saints are "very comfortable" with second-year Kenny Stills as their No. 2 wideout, but with Marques Colston on the downside of his career and Stills very unproven, it makes sense for the New Orleans to invest a middle-round pick on a wide receiver. Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews is a Marques Colston clone and could be available in the third round.

The Saints are "very comfortable" with Kenny Stills as their No. 2 receiver.

With New Orleans moving on from Darren Sproles and Lance Moore, Stills is going to take on a larger role this year. He's a lock to better his 32/641/5 line from 2013, but could continue to see inconsistent targets as the primary deep threat. ESPN's Mike Triplett would take the "under" on a 1,000-yard season from Stills.

Kenny Stills is expected to take on a bigger role in the wake of Lance Moore's release.

Stills already earned a surprisingly sizable role as a fifth-round rookie, playing on 708-of-1154 snaps (61.3 percent) and posting a 32-641-5 line. But he was just sixth on the team in targets with 51 (3.18 per game), a number that will certainly rise with Moore and Darren Sproles gone. Stills is a naturally exceptional playmaker capable of both deep routes and the quick-hitting routes Moore ran. His Dynasty arrow is pointing straight up.

Kenny Stills was held without a catch in New Orleans' Divisional Round loss to the Seahawks.

Stills technically wasn't targeted, but had two looks erased by penalty. One would have been a 30-yard catch. A fifth-round rookie out of Oklahoma, Stills established himself as a legit deep threat in his first NFL season, catching 32 passes for 641 yards and five touchdowns. That comes out to an eye-popping 20 yards per grab. A born playmaker, Stills has the skills to be more than a clear-out specialist. He's not just fast, but quick, and has excellent ball skills. Stills is an ascending player in Dynasty leagues.

Kenny Stills caught three passes for 35 yards in Saturday's Wild Card win at Philadelphia.

Stills played a ton of snaps, but ran most short crossing routes and outs as he saw a mere four targets. It's the eighth straight game the fifth-round rookie has seen four or fewer passes come his way from Drew Brees. Stills has to face the Legion of Boom next week, a unit that held him to a 1/3/0 line in Week 13.
Jan 5 - 12:58 AM

Kenny Stills caught a 76-yard touchdown in Week 17 against the Bucs.

It was the lone target Stills saw. On the score, Stills appeared to burn Darrelle Revis and the safety. There was no defender within five yards of Stills when he caught the ball. The rookie appeared in all 16 games as a situational deep threat and turned 32 catches into 641 yards and five scores. Stills will serve as the Saints' No. 3 receiver during the playoffs but is nothing more than the fifth or sixth option in the passing game.

Kenny Stills caught two passes for 23 yards in New Orleans' Week 16 loss to the Panthers.

The yards were Stills' second most in his past six games. He won't be on the daily-league radar for Week 17.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:04:00 PM

Kenny Stills caught four passes for 47 yards in Week 15 against the Rams.

It was Stills’ best game since Week 10 against the Cowboys. He reeled in all four of his targets, but Stills is just a bit player with Lance Moore back in the lineup. Stills has a ton of dynasty appeal. He’s not on the re-draft map.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 09:38:00 PM

Kenny Stills caught two passes for 22 yards in Week 14 against the Panthers.

Stills saw less targets than Lance Moore and Robert Meachem and continues to be used almost strictly as a situational deep threat. He remains a high-risk, high-reward WR4 and can't be trusted in the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Stills caught one pass for three yards in Week 13 at Seattle.

Stills was targeted twice but couldn't pluck his other ball off the turf. His biggest contribution was taking a 15-yard personal foul penalty from Richard Sherman. Stills remains a high-risk, high-reward fantasy WR4.
