Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cooks has been the definition of productive over the course of his career. However, if Watson does not play in 2021, Cooks becomes a must-avoid option for me. This Texans team is essentially going to be guaranteed the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft at the start of Week 1 and the scoring opportunities for this offense are not exactly going to be abundant. Cooks might give you a safe floor each week, but there's virtually no upside to drafting the veteran receiver. Around his ADP, there are some other options that I'd prefer pulling the trigger on that have more upside.We already know that Will Fuller won't be available for the first game of the 2021 NFL season, which could scare some fantasy managers off of pulling the trigger on him in their drafts depending on where his ADP lands. If he's available at a major discount, I'm pulling the trigger all day long. The Dolphins have done a ton to surround Tua Tagovailoa with talent this off-season and Fuller is merely one of the additions. While Fuller might be more of a boom-or-bust FLEX play when everyone is healthy and on the field, we know from last season in Miami that health is never a guarantee. With Fuller's big play explosiveness, plus the potential for an increased target share if Devante Parker struggles with injuries again, Fuller has the potential to smash his ADP. My Very Early Projection: 49-739-5.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Over the last six years, there have been just seven wide receivers who've finished top-24 in at least five of them. Those receivers are Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Amari Cooper, Jarvis Landry, and... Cooks. He's done it with four different quarterbacks, too. However, 2021 might be his toughest test yet, as it appears Tyrod Taylor will be his quarterback, and this is projected to be the lowest scoring offense in the league. Still, he's the clear-cut top option on this team and should be a lock to see 100-plus targets as long as he's healthy.Not only will Fuller finish up his suspension and miss Week 1 this year, but he'll also be returning to the field with a new quarterback, and let's just say that life without Deshaun Watson hasn't been kind to him. In 20 games with non-Watson quarterbacks, Fuller has averaged 6.0 targets, 3.1 receptions, 38.7 yards, and 0.10 touchdowns, which is a far cry from his 6.5 targets, 4.5 receptions, 70.6 yards, and 0.67 touchdowns per game with Watson under center. Can Tua Tagovailoa take a step forward in his career in 2021? Sure, but he's not going to be Watson, and there are suddenly tons of options for him to throw to, which means Fuller is going to have to fight for his target share. There's more risk than you'd like with Fuller, who's also had his fair share of injuries throughout his career. Getting him as a WR4 would be ideal, as you aren't relying on him for production week-in and week-out.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
 If Will Fuller continued his 2020 pace and wasn't suspended for the last 5 games of the season his 2020 16 game pace would've been: 77 receptions, 1,279 yards and 12 TDs.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
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.Fuller is suspended for the first game of the season due to a PED violation. I knew there was a reason he was staying healthy last year. He's had a history of injuries and his QB Tua was injury prone back in college. Two injury prone players that depend on each other is too much risk for my liking. I'm looking elsewhere, even knowing that when Fuller plays he can get hot.
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. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Consistently undervalued, but tough to take a plunge on with so much QB uncertainty right nowDon't love the MIA fit w/ tentative Tua and run-heavy mindset. Stir in health concerns & linge ring suspension, lots of red flags
