Jones showed us all a glimpse of his upside with StaffordCooks can still cook after recording his third straight season with 100+ targets, 1,000+ receiving yards and seven plus touchdowns; catch rate is key area he needs to improve after downgrading from Brees and Brady to Goff
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
A stunning WR5, Jones submitted an NFL-high 18 yards per reception with the second-best DVAR behind Antonio Brown. He led the league in yards on contested catches (467) and posted a play of more than 20 yards in all but two contests. For all of these superlatives, he's also unlikely to sustain elite production with 3.8 catches per game. This could be a case, however, of a clear regression candidate turning into a value if he keeps falling beyond the fifth round. A top-12 fantasy wideout in each of the last three years, Cooks's stock has dipped after his second trade in as many years. It turns out Jared Goff isn't quite as good as Drew Brees and Tom Brady. His receptions, targets, and TDs have also declined in each of the past two seasons, and that trend could continue in an offense that also must feed Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp while revolving around Todd Gurley. Although he'll lose some weekly reliability, those expecting a complete bust akin to Sammy Watkins are underestimating his talent.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
A premier deep-ball option, no player comes close to his combined mark of 17.5 yards per catch (min. 60 total receptions) over past two seasons - there's not much PPR upside to his game, but something around 1,000 yards and 6+ TDs remain well within his reach 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Jones was a high-end WR1 in fantasy last year but is definitely due for some touchdown-rate regression. Even though he will take a big step backward, he should still be considered a WR2 worth adding in the 5th or 6th rounds.Cooks had 1,000 yards and was a top-12 fantasy receiver with both Brady and Brees despite splitting targets with a ton of other useful pieces. While he may not be a WR1 anymore with Jared Goff throwing the passes, chances are that he won't stumble too far down the final leaderboard.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Was a top-10 fantasy WR last season but will he continue to see as many targets with Kenny Golladay and multiple running backs ready to contribute? Steadily seems to out-produce his ADP despite having less than spectacular numbers across the board. Should still be the No. 1 target for high octane Rams.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After seeing 107 targets in 2017, Jones' incredible touchdown rate propped him all the way up to the WR5 in standard leagues. He caught a touchdown once every 11.9 targets, which is almost double the average rate for wide receivers, which stands at one every 22.8 targets. After scoring just four touchdowns the prior season in the same offense, you have to wonder just how sustainable his touchdown total is. On top of that, the Lions continue to hype up Kenny Golladay, who is another big-bodied wide receiver to take away some of those looks. Jones is a solid fantasy asset, but don't pay for last year's numbers. He averaged just 5.3 targets per game with Golladay in the lineup, but 9.8 targets per game when he was held out. He's going to have some big games, but he'll likely have to share the stage with Golladay at times. While many continue to prop Cooks up as a low-end WR1, I urge you to stay away from that territory when it comes to him. The Sean McVay offense doesn't cater to one wide receiver, and it's unlikely they take targets away from Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, who were both extremely efficient last season. We saw Sammy Watkins finish with 70 targets in this exact role last year, and that was despite them giving up a second-round pick to acquire him. While I'd expect Cooks to see more than that with a full offseason to work with the offense, it'd be a stretch to see him finish with anything more than 100 targets. There were just three wide receivers who finished top-24 last year with less than 100 targets, so while it's doable, it's not a given.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Typically known for his acrobatic catches, the Detroit Lions receiver had a fantastic season last year, ending shockingly as the #5 receiver in standard points leagues. That startlingly high level of production was buoyed by a very high nine total touchdowns, however there's reason to think Jones could post similar scoring rates this year. Jones was the go-to receiver in the red zone last year, earning 43% of the Lions red zone targets, good for 6th in the NFL, and on the other end of the field, Jones functioned primarily as the Lions deep threat receiver, granting him chunk yardage. While I don't expect the exact same prolific catch rates and TD production that catapulted him into the elite receiver tier given a couple key additions to the Lions' runnin back corps, don't be surprised if Jones ends the season among names like Thielen, Green, and Adams squarely within the top 10.Oh how the hype has died, er, has decreased a bit. Swapped from the Saints to the Patriots in exchange for essentially a 1st rounder, Cooks looked poised to enter one of the league's most efficient pass offenses and produce frighteningly high-level numbers as Tom Brady's #1 receiver. Unfortunately, he only posted…#7 WR overall numbers? Yea Cooks is great, and produced with what he was given in NE despite the disappointment of those who expected the next coming of Randy Moss. Following a crushing defeat in Super Bowl LII, the Patriots pulled a Houdini, shipping Cooks with one less year of affordability to the Rams for nearly the same 1st round pick. Craziness. While Cooks travels west to enter perhaps an even more dynamic offense with the Rams, he also enters a WR room still full of high-end talent with Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Much improved QB play from Jared Goff and the offensive genius of Sean McVay should allow Cooks to thrive when he gets the rock, but with already two mouths to feed in Kupp and Woods, and the beast that is Todd Gurley around, the chances of getting top 10 production from Cooks are slim.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
 It's not that Cooks is a bad talent - he's not. It's that McVay doesn't care to support 1 elite WR. He prefers to balance it out across all 3. @DynastyGuruFF
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Jones has some competition for targets in DET and he's usually fairly TD dependent. I'm not enthralled with him this yearCooks has stud potential but the Rams failed to properly utilize Sammy last year, which has to be a mild concern
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Jones was actually the 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver with 61 receptions for 1,101 yards and 9 touchdowns. He has a lot of talent and should at least be a WR2 in 2018, but the Lions will probably run the ball more in 2018.Cooks averaged 9.6 fantasy points per game and he could be even better next year, as long as the Rams give him enough targets in the passing game.
