Most wouldn't believe it, but 2018 was Cooks' most consistent season from a fantasy standpoint. That's impressive considering it was his first year in the offense while the other receivers had more experience. He finished as a WR2 or better in 53.3 percent of his games, which ranked 14th among wide receivers. With Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods getting theirs, it'll be hard for Cooks to get into elite territory, but knowing he was this consistent should give drafters confidence in taking him as a high-end WR2It's clear that the Lions view Golladay as their long-term WR1, though you have to wonder just how high his ceiling will be. Despite Golden Tate leaving and Marvin Jones missing time at the end of the season, Golladay finished as the No. 21 receiver in fantasy. When drafting him as your WR2, understand that he may not have the upside or consistency of guys like Stefon Diggs and Brandin Cooks
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
There was negligible difference between him and teammate Woods in fantasy last season - both were tucked right inside the top 20 in half-PPR FAN PPGEntering his 3rd year, which used to be the magical breakout season for WRs, but with a 70/1063/5 line in '18, he kind of already broke out - with his talent and another year of experience, fair to expect even more in '19
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Cooks' lack of production in the fantasy playoffs may scare fantasy owners off, but it shouldn't. He's been remarkably consistent throughout his career, seeing at least 100 targets and totaling at least 1,000 receiving yards in each of the past four seasons. Although Cooper Kupp should be back and healthy, Cooks was actually better with Kupp on the field, so that shouldn't be a negative for fantasy owners. He's a safe WR2, who should give you steady production all year.Golladay broke out last year, totaling over 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. But the vast majority of his production came after Golden Tate was traded and Marvin Jones went down with a season-ending injury. Given that Matt Patricia wants to run the ball as much as possible, it's unclear how much Golladay can produce with Jones in the lineup. But, the Lions should be behind in the majority of their games, so despite Patricia's desire, they'll likely need to throw the ball more. Golladay has talent but it's difficult to see him being much more than a mid-tier WR2 this season. That's certainly valuable, but not a superstar.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 I liked Golladay A LOT last season but his price has gone up too much for me to like him this season. He went 70/1063/5, but that was without Marvin Jones for a significant amount of time, TJ Hockenson, and Darren Bevell, who will likely turn the Lions into a run first team for the first time in ages.

 After Tate was shipped out last season, Babytron's 16-game pace was 80/1172/4.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Cooks has now been a top 13 fantasy receiver in four straight seasons so if you are suddenly expecting that to change, you might be disappointed. He will have to split the target share with Woods and Kupp, of course, but Cooks has managed to produce these big numbers despite averaging just 119 targets per season in that time.Golladay did have a mini breakout last season but it came while Marvin Jones was shelved and Golden Tate was playing in Philly. Now that he isn't the only competent receiver on the depth chart, his volume share should plummet. He is still a WR2, but be careful with the extent of your expectations.

Fantasy Football Advice
I absolutely love Cook's 4th round ADP. This is guy who's posted four consecutive 1,100 yard seasons, even after playing with 3 different QB's! In fact, there have been just 5 players with at least 5,000 receiving yards and 30+ TD's before their age 26 season. Their names are Randy Moss, Larry Fitz, DeAndre Hopkins, Mike Evans, and Brandin Cooks (Pat Thorman). We know for a fact that Cooks is going to have a massive role on an elite offense, and that's not even considering that Kupp won't be 100% to start the seasons. He's and elite WR, with an elite opportunity share, on an elite offense. Cooks is a lock in the 4th round. He should absolutely be going in the early third in all formats.Golladay is a popular breakout pick this season, but I've yet to take him in a mock draft. It's not that he's a bad pick, or that he needs to be avoided at all, but there just always seems to be someone else I'd rather have. Golladay posted a 70/1063/5 stat line in his sophomore season in 2018, and there is absolutely room for him to expand on that number this season. The Lions only good WR's are him, Jones and Amendola...so he's going to see a significant share of the targets. The problem is that 1) the Lions are going to run the ball a lot this season...and 2) Jones was used more as the downfield threat and red zone option before his injury last season. Golladay absolutely proved that he's capable of an expanded role, so that could change in his third year, but it's still tough to pull the trigger on him as often times my #1 WR (after going RB heavy in the first three rounds). By no means should you avoid Golladay, but for sure don't reach on him, because there are a lot of great options still on the board in his range.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooks is one of the best deep-ball threats in the NFL, but he is similar to Cooper in that he is a little hit or miss in a run-heavy offensive scheme.Golladay was one of the pleasant surprises in Detroit last year and he should have WR2 value playing with QB Matthew Stafford.
