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 Brandin Cooks expected to return in Week 15
Neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 14, 11:45 am

Houston Texans
Romeo Crennel said he expects Brandin Cooks to return from neck injury this week. (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooks was held out of Week 14 with a neck injury and the Texans ultimately struggled in the passing game against the Bears. The Texans have the Colts and Bengals in Weeks 15 and 16. Cooks should be in the WR2 in both of those matchups.


Injury Brandin Cooks placed on Inactive list
Neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 11:30 am

Houston Texans
Update: Texans opted not to play Brandin Cooks today, and he is now officially inactive. Keke Coutee officially is active. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We had conflicting reports between Ian Rapoport and Adam Schefter on Cooks' availability. Ultimately he was placed on the Inactive list meaning Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen will be the top two receivers for Deshaun Watson. Rookie WR Isaiah Coulter is also active.


Injury Brandin Cooks a gametime decision
Neck injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 13, 10:00 am

Houston Texans
Brandin Cooks is a game time decision due to his neck injury, per sources. Texans will determine his status soon as to whether he can play. Keke Coutee and Chad Hansen would be primary receivers if Cooks can't go (Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: We've had conflicting reports on Cooks with Adam Schefter tweeting late last night that Cooks would be active. Ian Rapoport said this morning that Cooks would not play. We should the status of Cooks soon. His loss would be a significant loss to the offense.
