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 - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Among the Rams' top three wide receivers, Brandin Cooks was the most frequently targeted in the red zone in 2018, and had by far the highest red zone catch percentage at 88.24%. He also had the highest depth of target out of the three, and despite having played for three different teams in each of the last three seasons, he hasn't had fewer than 100 targets or 1,000 yards receiving since 2014.

Fantasy Downside
A healthy Cooper Kupp could reduce some of the target volume that Cooks received in 2018. Cooks disappointed owners during the fantasy playoffs in 2018, failing to score or cross 60 yards receving in Weeks 13-16 against the Bears, Eagles, and Cardinals.

2019 Bottom Line
Cooks is properly valued at his current ADP. Our projections make him the WR16 in .5 PPR leagues, and he's being drafted as the WR14 in the early fourth round. His five touchdowns on the season were his fewest in four years, and any positive touchdown variance could easily vault him into a top 12 finish at the position.
