2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
All Cooks has ever done during his professional career is get the job done. Even with rookie Davis Mills at QB a season ago, all Cooks did was post his second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign (the 6th of his career) with six touchdowns and four 100-yard games. He is the clear and unchallenged WR1 in Houston.

A former winner of the Fred Biletnikoff Award winner as the best college receiver in the country, Cooks has reliable hands, quick feet, and is an excellent route runner with the vision to find space in zone coverage, the speed and strength to beat man coverage, and the elusiveness to make the first defender miss on a regular basis. He can align all over the field, and that versatile skill set is probably the thing that has allowed him to step in and excel immediately in stops at New Orleans, New England, Los Angeles and Houston.

Mills will be a better QB in year two, but this will be a run-heavy attack that now features an emerging Nico Collins and talented rookie John Metchie in the receiver room, which could cut into Cooks'28% target share from a season ago (6th amongst all NFL receivers), but he is still a solid WR2 in 10 and 12-team leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury John Metchie III diagnosed with leukemia
Texans rookie wideout likely to miss 2022 season
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jul 24, 1:30 pm

Houston Texans
"Recently I was diagnosed with APL (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia), the most curable form of Leukemia. I am currently receiving great medical care, am in good spirits and I expect to make a recovery at a later point in time. As a result of this diagnosis, I will likely not be playing football this season. My main focus will be on my health and recovery." - John Metchie (Texans on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The good news is, he expects to make a full recovery in hopes of playing in the 2023 season. Metchie was selected by the Texans in the 2nd round of this year's draft. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins remain the top two options for the Texans at wide receiver.
