2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Knowing the concussion history of Cooks, it is amazing that he has only missed a handful of games in his career. He has now had at least five documented concussions, including two in a short span last season. After his second concussion, many were calling for him to retire, or at least take the rest of the season off, but Cooks was adamant that he would play.

Concussions aside, Cooks has been productive as a receiver so far in his career. He had four straight seasons with at least 65 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards, and that was despite playing for three different teams during that span (Saints, Patriots, and Rams). However, last season he took a large step back, posting on 42-583-2 on 72 targets in 14 games. The slide could have been due to the concussions, or perhaps he simply could not get in sync with Jared Goff in a struggling offense.

Either way, the Texans are counting on him to return to his productive ways, and would love him to seamlessly take the place of DeAndre Hopkins as the primary receiver on the outside. He is not nearly as skilled as Hopkins, but he has speed, and has certainly upgraded at quarterback in moving from Goff to Watson. I expect Cooks to approach 70 receptions and 1,000 yards if he stays healthy, but that is a giant if. His injury history should rightly push him down considerable distance draft boards.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Will Fuller pops back up on the injury report
Hamstring injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 1, 11:30 pm

Houston Texans
Texans WR Will Fuller was limited Thursday with a hamstring injury. (Houston Chronicle - Aaron Wilson)

FFToday's Take: Here we go again. Fuller has already dealt with two hamstring "episodes" less than a month into the season. A midweek addition to the injury is never a good sign, so Friday may tell the tale regarding his prospects for a sweet matchup against the beleaguered Vikings' secondary. Fuller's fantasy owners can never feel great about matchups because they can't ever bee sure their guy will play a full complement of snaps. Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb would be solid flex plays at worst if Fuller sits.


Injury Brandin Cooks active for opener
Battling lingering quad injury
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 10, 7:20 pm

Houston Texans
#Texans WR Brandin Cooks (quad) will be active tonight vs #Chiefs, source said. A good sign. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Fantasy owners can breathe a bit easier, although it's a safe assumption that he'll be on a snap count of some sort after being "managed" throughout camp. It sets the stage for a potentially huge game for Will Fuller and maybe even Kenny Stills in what could be a bit of a shootout. Assuming fantasy owners have other appealing options on the bench, it may be worth it to leave Cooks on the bench and go with another healthier option this week.


Injury Brandin Cooks listed as Questionable
Quadriceps injury
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 9, 2:45 pm

Houston Texans
Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Cooks didn't practice Tuesday and was limited in practice Monday with a quadriceps injury. Cooks dealt with the injury during training camp and was able to practice throughout. The team limited his work in full-team drills. (Houston Chronicle)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Cooks will play this week but fantasy owners need to monitor the inactives on Thursday night. Kenny Stills is next up on the depth chart if Cooks were to sit.
