Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Parker's an extremely talented wide receiver that has developed chemistry with Ryan Fitzpatrick. As long as Parker's 2019 season wasn't a fluke, which I don't believe it was, he'll be in the borderline WR1 conversation all season long. 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Down slightly. I have a feeling the Dolphins will move to Tua sooner than later (if healthy), so there's an unknown there that has me dropping Parker. 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Are we just going to ignore the fast that Parker was immediately out targeted 60-52 to a UDFA. Or is an offense with no other weapons, and scoring 9 TDs the more likely answer for his success? His breakout was because of huge increase in success rate versus man and press, but he was still a bottom half percentile player at both, he just had Fitzpatrick not caring about throwing into tight windows. Not a problem if Fitz plays out the whole season. A long term concern for me though.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

Compared to 2019 finish (No. 7 WR in FAN PTS), going at a major discount in early ADP - sorry, I'm not nearly as threatened by Preston Williams as the consensus 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There were two wide receivers who hit at least 55 yards in 13 games last season. Michael Thomas and Parker. He didn't rely on touchdowns to score fantasy points. Knowing that Ryan Fitzpatrick will be back, and that Tua Tagovailoa may take over at some point, Parker should remain in the WR2 conversation most weeks. He did finish as the No. 7 wide receiver last year, but the team now has an improved defense and run-game, which will remove some volume from the passing offense.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.
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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Parker finally had the breakout season we thought he would have when he was drafted, tallying 1202 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns. He is a bit risky having done that on a really bad team in his Age 26 season, but I think he can maintain WR2 value if he can stay healthy in 2020.
