2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
In the history of the NFL, no other wide receiver has been blessed to play with two different first ballot hall of fame quarterbacks like Brandin Cooks, who left New Orleans after two seasons catching passes from Drew Brees to move to New England and work with Tom Brady.

At just 24 years of age, the former first round selection from Oregon State owns consecutive 1100-yard seasons, with 20 career receiving touchdowns. As a member of the Patriots, Cooks joins a crowded receiving corps dominated by a tight end in Rob Gronkowski who commands a significant percentage of targets each game and a coach who is not afraid to employ game plans that could limit Cooks' targets from one week to the next.

Fantasy owners want to own a piece of the New England offense because it is potent and the Patriots will put up one of the highest point totals in the league this season. The problem is predicting when and to whom the points will be distributed to, making Cooks a less desirable option compared to other wide receivers taken in the early rounds of fantasy drafts. Cooks has the ceiling of a WR1 but given the all the mouths to feed in New England, his likely output will look more like a WR2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Hogan, White expected to sit for Patriots
Patriots playing to win, but will rest injured players
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 31, 8:10 am

New England Patriots
The #Patriots are playing to win today, but they'll rest players who are borderline with injuries. That includes WR Chris Hogan (shoulder), source said. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Adam Schefter is also reporting that James White is expected to sit meaning we should see a lot of Dion Lewis out of the backfield. Top receiving options for Brady include Brandin Cooks, Rob Gronkowski and Danny Amendola.


Injury Hogan, White expected to sit for Patriots
New England down two key offensive players
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 24, 7:00 am

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are expected to be without running back James White and receiver Chris Hogan for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. White will sit out with an ankle injury, while Hogan is dealing with a hurt shoulder. Both players practiced all week and were listed as questionable. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With White out of the running back mix, it will allow Mike Gillislee to be active for the first time since Week 8. Expect Dion Lewis and Gillislee to handle the majority of touches out of the backfield. Danny Amendola and Brandin Cooks should see an uptick in targets with Hogan out.


Injury Chris Hogan not expected to play
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 17, 11:40 am

New England Patriots
A surprise for today’s big game: Patriots WR Chris Hogan not expected to play vs Steelers as he continues recovery from shoulder injury, per league source.‬ (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Hogan's absence is somewhat of a surprise considering he played the majority of snaps last week. The Patriots signed Kenny Britt early this week. In Hogan's absence expect more work for Brandin Cooks, Rob Gronkowski Danny Amendola and the running backs.
