Texans veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks, dealing with a sore neck, is expected to return this week after being sidelined Sunday against the Chicago Bears.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Randall Cobb is expected to remain on injured reserve and not play again this year. Cobb said in a telephone interview Friday he is contemplating whether to have surgery on his toe.
We reported the news about Cobb on Monday. But the return of Cooks is good news for Watson, who should get a little fantasy boost with Cooks in the lineup. The Texans were running with Coutee and Hansen as the top-two WRs in Week 14, but both should move down a spot with the return of Cooks. Hansen ran out of the slot at times in Week 14, according to reports.
DAL WR Randall Cobb - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 16 at Philadelphia
Randall Cobb is way down the list of offensive options in recent weeks. He had only one catch for -3 yards and has only six receptions over the past three games. Cobb had a nice run, but isn't really a factor even going against the Eagles poor pass defense. Keep Cobb on the bench or waiver wire for Week 16.
