Draft note
by John Paulsen
Cooks’ streak of 1,000-yard seasons ended at four last year as he caught just 42 passes for 582 yards and two touchdowns. The Rams traded him to the Texans, his fourth team in five seasons, and there he’ll be asked to replace most of DeAndre Hopkins’ production in the Houston passing game. The good news is that there’s plenty of targets up for grabs with Hopkins’ 150 targets vacated. The bad news is the limited practice time available due to the odd nature of the current NFL offseason, though Cooks has been able to meet up with Deshaun Watson to work on their timing. Receivers who change teams generally do not meet their previous production unless they see a bump in targets or a quarterback upgrade, but it could be argued that Cooks will see both a bigger role and a better quarterback in 2020. He had a run of four straight top 15 finishes from 2015 to 2018, so getting back into WR2 territory is not out of the question if he can play a full season. He has suffered five known concussions in his career, which is a concern. He’ll vie with Will Fuller for the No. 1 role in the Houston passing game.

HOU WR Brandin Cooks - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Tennessee Titans
Deshaun Watson threw for 359 yards in the win over the Jaguars last week, with Brandin Cooks busting out for eight grabs, 161 yards and his first TD as a Texan. In his first four games with Houston Cooks totaled only 10 receptions and 138 yards. Watson has passed for at least 250 yards in all five contests this season so if Cooks has the potential to be a part of your starting lineup each week. At the No. 23 Tennessee pass defense on Sunday he makes for a WR3/flex option.
