Only the Best: Saints Wide Receiver Kenny Stills

Chris Graythen

If there is one Saints player worthy of the status of the NFL's standout performer in October, it has to be Kenny Stills.

We were asked by Applebee's to choose the Saints' best player for the month of October and no one has made more of an impact than rookie receiver Kenny Stills. Stills was drafted to be the "next Lance Moore." His size and stature combined with his good hands and sound route-running at Oklahoma made this a fair presumption. Thankfully for Who Dat Nation, Stills is emerging to be much more than the parameters set before him. He is far more than just a second-rate L-Mo.

Coming into 2013, Joe Morgan was to be the speedster who could stretch the defense for big plays, now Saints fans have to be reminded who Joe Morgan is. Stills can be both the field-stretcher and the slot receiver, and it is this diversity that makes him "the best" in the month of October.

Here are Stills' stats so far this season:


Receiving Kickoff Returns Punt Returns
G Rec Yds Y/G AVG Lng TD KR YDS AVG Lng TD PR Yds Avg Lng TD
7 13 327 46.7 25.2 69 3 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

It is the last two weeks in-particular where Stills has emerged as a player to watch:


vs NEP / 10.13.13 Receiving
Rec Yards Avg TD
Kenny Stills 3 64 21.3 1


vs BUF / 10.27.13 Receiving
Rec Yards Avg TD
Kenny Stills 3 129 43.0 2

If you key in on Jimmy Graham, Darren Sproles, or Marques Colston, Drew Brees will find the open man, and recently that man has been Kenny "Skills" Stills. The Saints have found a mid-round steal in Kenny Stills, and now they've created another problem for their opponents. His touchdown catch in New England was phenomenal and his two td catches against Buffalo were outstanding. His performances are starting to solidify and the drops are beginning to vanish. Clearly, Drew is finding more faith in Stills in big spots.

Kenny Stills, Who Dat Nation tips their caps to you. In October, you've been the best, and you've helped keep the Saints as the best in the NFC South.
