Rams trade for WR Brandin Cooks

Adam Schefter - [Full Article]

Patriots are trading WR Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round pick to LA Rams for the 23rd overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft and a sixth-round pick, league sources told ESPN.

Fantasy Impact: 

Cooks' value takes a hit in Los Angeles, where he'll compete for targets with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp. Jared Goff is no Tom Brady, and Sammy Watkins only saw 70 targets in 15 games (4.7 per game) in the role that Cooks is expected to fill. Woods and Kupp see slight downgrades as well. As for New England, this moves shows a lot of confidence in Chris Hogan and Julian Edelman, who will now vie for targets alongside Rob Gronkowski.
