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.Harry was highly touted coming into the NFL, but he struggled to get onto the field in his rookie season. We'll see if he can stay healthy this year and if he does, he has a great opportunity in front of him. This offense isn't going to be as pass-happy as previous seasons with Cam Newton now in town, but Harry should see a significant target share. Right now, Harry should be considered a low-end WR4, but there's a path for him to finish as a top-36 WR when it's all said and done. He just has to take advantage of the opportunity.
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.N'Keal Harry has a real chance to become the Patriots WR2 behind Julian Edelman. Apparently, with Cam Newton's arrival, that's very exciting! I don't see the upside though. The Patriots will certainly be a run-first team, Edelman remains the clear top option and Harry will have to compete with Mohamed Sanu, who cost a 2nd rounder last year and was drafted for a reason. I know Harry looks shiny and exciting but not break the bank on a guy with limited upside and a non-existent floor.

 Up with the addition of Cam, but not getting too crazy with his ranking just yet..
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.Despite spending a first-round pick on Harry last year, the Patriots targeted Harry more than four times just once, and it came in Week 17. The Patriots still have Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu on the roster, and neither of them are going away. Now you take away Tom Brady and add in the uncertainty of Jarrett Stidham under center, and it's enough to make Harry essentially a non-factor in fantasy.
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 
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.
