Expert 
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 offense has plenty of points in it but it far from guaranteed Cooks will get enough to make him a weekly fantasy starter. He's still injured going into the season opener too, adding another red flag.Sterling Shepard went into 2019 as the clear cut Giants WR1 but he failed to perform, missing half the season with injury and only performing against mediocre opposition. Now with Saquon Barkley, Evan Engram, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton to compete with, it's hard to see Shepard providing weekly security in an offense expected to run more often this year under Joe Judge. He's a low upside mid-round pick.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Acquired from the Rams in April, Cooks will be tasked with helping to fill the void created by Houston's March trade of DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona. Coming off a season in which he averaged a career-worst 41.6 receiving yards per game with a career-low two touchdowns, Cooks is the most likely candidate to emerge as Houston's top receiving option in 2020.Signed prior to last season to a four-year, 41 million extension, Shepard picked up a few of the targets that had gone to Odell Beckham in prior seasons, averaging more than eight targets per game for the first time in his career. The expectation is that he will continue to work primarily out of the slot in 2020 despite the slot also being the preferred position of Golden Tate.
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.Sterling Shepard tied for 17th most in the NFL for targets per game in 2019 with 8.3. The Athletic's Dan Duggan said Giants WR Sterling Shepard has dominated opposing cornerbacks in training camp, establishing himself as the clear No. 1 wideout.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been just nine wide receivers who've finished as a top-24 receiver in at least four of the last five years. Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry, Michael Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, and... Cooks. He's done that with three different quarterbacks, and it's hard to say Deshaun Watson is a downgrade. The lack of offseason might prove to be a lot for the chemistry between the two, but knowing Cooks has transitioned well in the past, it shouldn't take too long. Concussions, on the other hand, are a big worrisome point. He only missed two games due to concussions in 2019, but they're starting to add up. It also affected his performance (clearly) in a big way, as he never topped 46 yards in the six games following the injury. There's going to be one of Will Fuller or Cooks who shines as a top-30 receiver with top-20 upside, yet neither are being drafted there. Knowing Cooks has been in this situation before, he gets a vote of confidence. If you land him as your WR4, you should be psyched. If Fuller misses any time, he'd be a must-play WR2 nearly every week.In a season where he was dealing with injuries and a rookie quarterback, Shepard still posted WR2 or better numbers in 40 percent of his games, which ranked 33rd among wide receivers. Now, to be fair, the offense has changed, but it doesn't appear the new regime is very fond of Evan Engram, as evidenced by putting him on the trade block during the NFL Draft. Golden Tate is aging, and while Darius Slayton did flash at times, it was a relatively small sample size. It shouldn't shock anyone to see Shepard get 100-plus targets in 2020 and finish as a WR3, though you do have to wonder what his upside actually is with so many mouths to feed.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Brandin Cooks once again finds himself on a new team, now with the Texans. Things could be worse considering he'll get to catch passes from Deshaun Watson but talent and opportunity have never been the problem for Cooks, it's always been about staying healthy. He has suffered multiple concussions over the last few years which adds major risk. On the flip side, if he stays healthy, he could be more dangerous than ever with Watson.When healthy, Shepard has been a solid WR3 but the problem is, he's rarely healthy. Now with the emergence of Darius Slayton and the presence of veteran Golden Tate, I don't like Shepard's chances of living up to his ADP.
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.When Shepard's on the field, he's a target vacuum. However, he's rarely been on the field the past couple seasons and he is playing in one of the deepest receiving corps in the entire league. Darius Slayton, Golden Tate, Evan Engram, and Saquon Barkley are all going to command targets in this offense, which limits each player's ceiling. If one of the other options misses time, Shepard can be extremely fantasy relevant, but it's impossible to project that going into the season. Shepard's a risky pick this year.

Among the biggest busts of 2019 , but previously had been so consistent he deserves forgiveness... especially now as Watson's new No.1... will love the newfound deep ball accuracy.

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 - 106.94 years in and we have a yards per reception of 11.6. That average is a lot of work just to go over 1000 yards. Combine that with his lack of TDs, and worrisome concussion history, and you get a perfectly boring WR that needs 90+ receptions to be fantasy relevant.
