WR - HOU
Expert 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
If you're a believer in Trevor Lawrence like I am then DJ Chark might be a major value on draft day. Lawrence will throw a lot of TDs, the question is who will be catching them? Chark, Shenault, and newly acquired Marvin Jones should each see their numbers improve with Lawrence calling the signals.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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There are many trying to figure out the target share for Laviska Shenault, Marvin Jones, and Travis Etienne, but the one who's the clear-cut No. 1 option on this team is Chark. If Trevor Lawrence turns out to be the real deal, Chark can be the 2021 version of Tee Higgins when he was with Joe Burrow (was the No. 11 wide receiver in eight full games with Burrow). Chark already flashed WR1 potential in 2019 when he racked up 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and eight touchdowns with the combination of Gardner Minshew and Nick Foles, so why can't he be more with Lawrence? The coaching staff is a big question mark, but you don't draft Lawrence to run the ball 40 times per game. Chark comes with some risk but even more upside.

Love Trevor Lawrence, don't like Marvin Jones' signing or the general idiocy of this staff since Meyer arrivedConsistently undervalued, but tough to take a plunge on with so much QB uncertainty right now
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Chark should do better than 127.1 fantasy points if the Jaguars take a quarterback with the first overall pick. Chark Jr should be a WR3 with upside playing for Urban Meyer.
