Brandin Cooks agrees to contract restructure

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Houston Texans and Brandin Cooks have agreed to a contract restructure.

Fantasy Impact

In an effort to create cap space the Texans have restructured Cooks’ contract freeing up $6.5M. The veteran WR is coming off his fifth 1,000 yard season and currently projects to be the top wide receiver for the Texans with Will Fuller entering free agency. Cooks should see a lot of volume during 2021, but his success will ultimately depend on what the Texans decide to do with Deshaun Watson.

Brandin Cooks catches two touchdown passes in loss

Fantasy Impact

Cooks started off this first season slow with the Texans as he adjusted to the offense but had a great finish. The veteran wide receiver finishes the year with 81 receptions, 1,150 receiving yards, and six touchdowns.

Brandin Cooks grabs six passes in return to lineup

Brandin Cooks caught six of seven targets for 59 yards on Sunday as the Texans lost to the Colts by a 27-20 score in Week 15 action.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks missed the Week 14 game against the Bears with a neck issue but was back on the field on Sunday. The veteran wide receiver is at the top of the depth chart for the Texans and is worth owning in most fantasy leagues.

Brandin Cooks (neck) a full participant at practice on Friday

Texans WR Brandin Cooks practiced in full on Friday after being limited earlier in the week with a neck injury.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks was held out of Week 14 with the neck injury but appears to be a full-go for Sunday. He'll get a tough matchup with an Indianapolis D/ST that's given up the 8th fewest points to opposing WRs on the season, but should still deliver at least WR3 numbers. Deshaun Watson also becomes a more reliable QB1 with his top option back in the lineup.
