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 Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins not expected to play
Texans down their top two receivers for Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 8, 5:17 pm

Houston Texans
Texans injury report, not practicing Nico Collins, Brandin Cooks, Troy Hairston, Kurt Hinish, Derek Stingley Jr., with Ka'imi Fairbairn limited. Collins, Cooks, Stingley not expected to play. Hairston and Fairbairn expected to play. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Texans are going to be struggling for playmakers at the wide receiver position this week. Expect Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore to get the bulk of the work but it's hard to get excited about their fantasy prospects going up against the Dallas defense.


Injury Brandin Cooks out with a calf injury
Injured in practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 2, 4:18 pm

Houston Texans
#Texans will lean on Nico Collins, Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore with Brandin Cooks out with a calf injury. Desmond King will line up again as an outside corner with Derek Stingley Jr. out for third game in a row with Tavierre Thomas operating as primary nickel. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooks was added to the injury report yesterday and has now been ruled out. Nico Collins gets a slight bump in value but the Texans passing game has been so bad, he's only a Flex consideration.


Injury Brandin Cooks misses practice Wednesday
Unhappy
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 2, 3:46 pm

Houston Texans
Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks didn't practice again Wednesday for personal reasons, per league sources, one day after trade deadline expired with no deal reached. He expressed displeasure on social media Tuesday after no trade due to his contract-Texans' trade demands. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Unhappy players demanding trades and taking to social media to express their displeasure is commonplace these days. The Texans will at least be without Nico Collins due to a groin injury and may have Cooks out as well. We'll see.
