Granted, it’s early, but Saints receiver Kenny Stills’ past two weeks have showcased performances which could catapult him into the next big target for Drew Brees.

While veteran receiver Marques Colston, and more recently, tight end Jimmy Graham have produced historical numbers under Brees in the Saints offense, Stills is the hot hand entering Sunday’s matchup against Carolina at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Two weeks ago, he caught eight passes for 98 yards in a losing effort against Baltimore. And Sunday, he continued his December to remember with five catches for a career-high 162 yards during a 35-32 upset win at Pittsburgh.

Stills’ timing was perfect for the Saints (5-7), who are missing rookie receiver sensation Brandin Cooks (out for the season with a broken thumb). Graham was held without a catch against the Steelers.

“When you have a great quarterback, he finds the guys that are open,” said Stills, passing much of the credit to Brees, who beforehand, passed it to Stills.

Stills now has 44 catches this season for a team-high 691 yards.

“He’s a guy that you don’t have to overcoach,” Brees said.

Brees also complimented Stills as a receiver that has the ability to adjust routes on paper into game-time situations.

Sounds like Colston, a ninth-year pro whose 66 TDs from Brees rank sixth all-time in the NFL’s quarterback-receiver combinations. Meanwhile, Brees-to-Graham (50 TDs) ranks third in just five seasons.

Stills has far to go to catch up — his 69-yard score at Pittsburgh marked his third of the season, the eighth of his two-year career.

“He’s someone who picks things up pretty quickly,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “His skill set (is good). Obviously, he’s a player that can run. His transition ability is important, the way he’s able to get in and out of cuts.”

Home sweet home?

The Saints are about to test just how sweet — or not — home is.

Re: Kenny Stills having a December to remember

If Stills continues to improve and Cooks comes back from injury with no lingering issues then that gives us a pretty good one-two punch next year. Toon is also getting some playing time as well and is showing some progress recently. Bring up our PS players next year and we could really have something here. Josh Hill is really growing as a TE and Jimmy is...........well, he's Jimmy the scoring machine. We've got some good possibilities ahead for us.

Don't forget about Morgan. I think Cooks,Stills,and Morgan would be a great trio! And if Toon pans out,then that's even better.
