Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 While Williams is an extremely talented wide receiver, this offense simply isn't going to have enough targets to go around to make Williams fantasy relevant this year. He'll have some big performances, but predicting which games those are going to be is going to be a nightmare. He's a player that I recommend letting someone else in your league draft.
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.If there's one thing I know, it's that Mike Williams is going to miss Philip Rivers throwing him the ball in tight one-on-one situations. Rivers was intercepted an amazing eight times while targeting Williams, which led all wide receivers, and he saw just 90 targets. Tyrod Taylor isn't someone who takes a lot of risks, and if Justin Herbert is put under center, they won't be throwing a whole lot with a rookie quarterback. Williams is a very risky fantasy selection in 2020.

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 - 106.9Despite seemingly having a down year from 2018 where he "broke out", in the form of TDs, this was actually an even more impressive year. Stayed healthy for the majority of the year and got his first 1000 yard season, was just missing the TDs of 2018. Put the last 2 season together and you get a Vincent Jackson type year. Would be happy to draft as a flex player if the QB situation is okay.
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.
