Brandin Cooks has a top-16 finish with four different teams in his career. He did so with New Orleans, New England, Los Angeles, and Houston (last year). This year, due to the departure of Will Fuller to Miami, he will occupy the leading receiver role for Houston and should be a decent fantasy option that could see another top-20 finish, which would be his sixth in eight seasons. Cooks quietly has five 1,000-yard seasons in the last six years. His floor is 60 receptions and 5 touchdowns, which could be higher depending on the state and success of the Texans quarterback situation. The uncertainty of Houston's offense may be a concern that drops Cooks further down draft boards, but his consistency as a producing fantasy receiver makes him one of the better value plays at wide receiver this season.
