The New Orleans Saints know who needs to be on the field offensively in order for them to have success, and it was obvious in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.
When Larry Holder of NOLA.com broke down the snap counts for the Saints, one player who really stood out offensively was wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
While the offensive line and quarterback Drew Brees all obviously played 100 percent of the plays, Holder reported that Cooks played a whopping 99 percent of plays in Week 1. That's a big number for a player who's essentially all over the field the entire game.

Cooks' value to the Saints can't be understated, and it's obvious that the team wants him involved in a huge way this season. Another name worth noting is tight end Ben Watson, who was in the game for 92 percent of the snaps in Week 1.
