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 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Arizona Cardinals
Brandin Cooks had his worst season as a pro in 2019, with career lows in targets, yards, and touchdowns, and he ranks as the WR61 through Week 16. Cooks' most recent concussion was his fifth in the last six seasons, and while it's far from certain that his head injuries correlate with his diminished performance this season, it's reasonable to have some concern about his fantasy value moving forward as well as his health as an individual.

Despite an uptick in targets over the past two weeks, it seems extremely unlikely that Cooks will see much time on the field this Sunday. There are simply too many obstacles in Cooks' way to recommend him as a starter in redraft or DFS in Week 17.
