Draft note
by John Paulsen
There are obviously major questions at quarterback when it comes to the Texans. But even if Deshaun Watson isn’t under center, and it doesn’t look like he will be, Houston has the capable Tyrod Taylor as a bridge along with rookie Davis Mills. Cooks saw 119 targets last year in 15 games and has surpassed the 1,000-yard mark in five of his last six seasons. The Texans aren’t going to be good, so they’ll probably be throwing the ball more than they’d like. Cooks is shaping up to be a #GarbageTimeHero in 2021.

HOU WR Brandin Cooks - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Browns

Brandin Cooks is well on his way to posting his sixth-career 1,000-yard season and he totaled 132 receiving yards in Week 1. He certainly is no Tyreek Hill, but wouldn't it be something if he could post even close to the numbers Hill did against the Browns in Week 1 (11/197/1)? Tyrod Taylor may have to force-feed Cooks the ball if Houston wants to hang in with the Browns in Week 2, so the upside is there as Flex or even a WR2.
