Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Cooks quietly had a solid year despite all of the turmoil in Houston. Deshaun Watson's pending departure hurts this offense and his numbers. Tyrod Taylor comes in to man the ship for at least a little while. The game script will force the Texans to pass in the 4th Qtr, opening up plenty of garbage catches and yards. Cooks can pad his stats and, in the process, get owners sneaky fantasy points. 
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
Brandin Cooks has quietly had a very strong NFL career. The 2021 outlook is very fuzzy with chaos falling upon the Texans. If Deshaun Watson plays QB, Cooks could be a serviceable WR3. With Tyrod Taylor at QB, Cooks is a WR4 at best and that seems the more likely scenario. If he drops in drafts considerably he may be a sneaky good addition to a roster. However, it's going to be a long, difficult season in Houston.Joe Brady figured out how to get the best out of Curtis Samuel, and Samuel turned that performance into a free agent deal with the Washington Football Team. Ryan Fitzpatrick will have to build report with his new receivers, but one would consider Samuel's '20 numbers as a good base line expectation with potential for more. But, it would be wise to draft him on the baseline, bot the upside.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Consistently undervalued, but tough to take a plunge on with so much QB uncertainty right nowGreat fit in WASH where deep speed could finally be capitalized upon w/ Fitz, in an offense he's familiar with. I like Joe Brady's scheme and his volume last year (2nd most touches among WRs!!!) more, but the QB upgrade should balance that out
