Brandin Cooks leads team in receiving in Week 13 loss

Houston Texans' WR caught 3-of-6 targets for 38 yards, adding one carry for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks missed two days of practice last week with an illness, but that didn't stop him from resuming his typical role as the Texans WR1. The 28-year-old has caught 65 passes for 742 yards and three touchdowns over 12 games in 2021. Cooks owns a huge target share and is a solid fantasy WR2 for fantasy purposes. The former first-round pick's biggest flaw is his QB play.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a non-COVID-19 illness. He is active and will be in his usual role as the Texans WR1. The 28-year-old has caught 62 passes for 704 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games in 2021. Cooks owns 28.2% of the team targets and is a solid fantasy WR2 against the Colts. The former first-round pick is 23rd among all wideouts in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (illness) expected to play in Sunday's Week 13 game vs the Indianapolis Colts

Fantasy Impact

Per Schefter, Cooks' illness concerns should not stop him from suiting up on Sunday regardless of the questionable designation he is tagged with on the team's injury report. As such, the veteran wideout/only somewhat reliable fantasy asset on the Houston roster this season can be treated as a solid WR2 option against an Indianapolis defensive unit that has allowed the ninth-most points to opposing WRs this season. Be advised to continue following this story as we get closer to kickoff should something change.

Brandin Cooks (illness) questionable for Week 13

Texans WR Brandin Cooks is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Colts due to a non-COVID-19 related illness.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks returned to practice on a limited basis on Friday after being out earlier in the week. Barring a setback, he appears good to go for Sunday and should be considered a low-end WR2.

Brandin Cooks (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

There was a report that a few players were sick in the locker room, but did not test positive. Many players were sent home as a precaution. Though this is certainly a situation to monitor over the coming days.
