Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Brandin Cooks once again finds himself on a new team, now with the Texans. Things could be worse considering he'll get to catch passes from Deshaun Watson but talent and opportunity have never been the problem for Cooks, it's always been about staying healthy. He has suffered multiple concussions over the last few years which adds major risk. On the flip side, if he stays healthy, he could be more dangerous than ever with Watson. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Brandin Cooks was looking for his fifth consecutive 1000+ yard season in 2019 but instead ended up with his fifth consecutive concussion. This one kept him out for a few games but he was mostly ineffective when playing anyway, proving nothing more than a deep threat behind Woods, Kupp, Higbee and Gurley. Now in a re-modelled Texans receiving corps, Cooks will have the opportunity to fight it out with Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills for targets. This offence has plenty of points in it but it far from guaranteed Cooks will get enough to make him a weekly fantasy starter. His 8th round price is too rich for me but if Cooks drops, he may be worth the gamble.Bryan Edwards arrives in a crowded Raiders receiving room in an awkward situation. Henry Ruggs is guaranteed to get a chance while Tyrell Williams is locked in outside for now. Edwards will be a threat in the red zone and can play outside or in the slot so he can at least offer something in a number of positions, he's just probably a season or two away from being fantasy relevant but if he impresses in training camp, he may just lock up the second outside position.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been just nine wide receivers who've finished as top-24 fantasy options in at least four of the last five seasons: Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry, DeAndre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, and... Cooks. Keep in mind he's done that while playing for three different teams, so he's essentially team-proof. Concussions were problematic in 2019 and will be a problem moving forward in his career, as another one could end it. While on the field, though, he's proven to have a WR2 floor in the NFL. We can't pretend that going to Deshaun Watson isn't an upgrade from Jared Goff, either. The issue is that Will Fuller plays a similar role and has chemistry with Watson. Cooks can likely be drafted as a WR4, but he'll be a starter when he's on the field. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Absent his concussion history, Cooks would be a draft-day target. He's an excellent receiver, with no better evidence than the fact that he had three straight 1,000-yard receiving seasons on three different teams. And taking over for DeAndre Hopkins, who has seen at least 150 targets in in five straight seasons, is an excellent spot. But Cooks has battled multiple concussions - at least five in his professional career - and the risk is of him missing time is extremely high. It would be wonderful if Cooks could play a full season this year, but drafters should be leery of drafting Cooks as a WR3 given his history. 
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Originally with Brees and the Saints, Cooks had 1100 yards and at least 8 TDs both seasons before heading to NE. In his first year with NE, Cooks put up nearly 1100 and 7. Then he went to the Rams, where, in his first season, he put up 1200 and 5. Cooks is no stranger to switching teams, no stranger to playing with great QBs, and no stranger to putting up very solid numbers. He was even WR29 last season prior to his injury. He's simply being under drafted. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cooks is changing teams yet again this season, but there may not have been a better place for him to land. There are a ton of vacated targets in Houston after the departure of Deandre Hopkins and Cooks could see a significant amount of them. Will Fuller will certainly be involved, as will Randall Cobb, but otherwise Cooks could very well lead this offense in targets. There's risk involved in drafting him, which is why his ADP is lower, but it could pay off in a big way for whoever selects him.It's hard to find a more perfect landing spot for Bryan Edwards than Las Vegas. Edwards is going to walk right in, assuming he's healthy, and make an instant impact as the X-receiver in this offense. He's quick and twitchy at the line of scrimmage and has some of the best hands in the class to go along with his big frame. Edwards, Ruggs, and Renfrow out of the slot is a great receiving trio and Edwards could very well lead the Raiders in targets in 2020.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Texans acquired WR Brandin Cooks and a 2022 fourth-round pick from the Rams in exchange for the No. 57 overall pick of the 2020 draft. Cooks, who has suffered some concerning (head) injuries in recent years but not missed much time, is coming off by far the worst campaign of his career. Somehow, this is the third time he's been traded in three years. He has a bad contract and has suffered at least five concussions as a pro."Raiders were one of many teams that felt (Bryan Edwards) was a first-round talent just based on tape study, but his injury history dropped him down draft boards." @DevyEusuf
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
The fun part is trying to figure out who will disappoint out of the Rams WR trio if they decide to continually target the TE or if the TE targets were mostly due to Cooks absence. What I hadn't realized is that Cooks only missed 2 games(Basically 3). Despite still being around the TE revolution still happened, and the consistency of the WRs suffered. Almost 2 less targets per game for Cooks in 2019 vs 2018. Passer Rating when targeted: 2019 - 88.1, 2018 - 115.9, 2017 - 106.9
