Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his last four seasons, Cooks has racked up at least 65 passes, 1,082 yards and five touchdowns. That production would be good enough for low-end WR2 numbers, and Cooks is currently the No. 17 receiver off the board, so he’s being drafted just above his floor. His three-year average would make him a high-end WR2, which is where he finished 2018, his first season with the Rams. If you’re worried about Cooper Kupp’s return--don’t. Cooks was actually significantly more productive (5.5-90-0.25 on 7.4 targets per game) in the eight games with Kupp in the lineup last year. Cooks is a safe pick in the 4th round this year.

LAR WR Brandin Cooks - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Atlanta Falcons
Brandin Cooks is the fantasy WR32 through Week 6, a standing that is well below what fantasy investors had hoped for through six games. Cooks has yet to put forth a WR1 finish in 12-team 0.5 PPR scoring formats, and whether the pressure rate on quarterback Jared Goff is attributable to his own performance or the offensive line in front of him, the end result is Cooks not seeing the target volume his talent should demand.

Week 7 represents a get-right opportunity for Cooks, with a matchup against a Falcons defense who has struggled to contain wide receivers. Atlanta has an aFPA to wide receivers of 45.9, the third-most of any team. Cooks should see primary coverage from Isiah Oliver, a cornerback who's struggled through six weeks, and whose speed doesn't come close to matching Cooks'. Cooks leads the Rams with an aDOT of 13.8 yards, and this matchup should finally present an opportunity for Cooks to cash in on his deep targets and finish the week as a WR1.
