WR - DAL
Week 13 Outlook
Brandin Cooks brought down 4 of 5 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 45-10 win over the Commanders.
Cooks is the clear No. 2 target behind CeeDee Lamb for Cowboys' QB Dak Prescott. The veteran wide receiver is currently on a nice little three-game run which has seen him come up with 16 of 19 targets for 287 yards and a couple of touchdowns. Prescott has been on a roll, and Cooks has benefitted greatly from it.
Brandin Cooks caught three of four targets for 42 yards during the Cowboys' 33-10 win over the Panthers in Week 11.
Cooks is averaging 14.8 fantasy points per game over his last five contests. While that stretch does include some inconsistent play, there's no denying that he has cemented himself as the No. 2 wide receiver in a very potent offense. He'll find himself in the high-end WR4 realm against the Commanders on Thursday night.
Brandin Cooks caught 9-of-10 targets for 173 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 49-17 win over the Giants.
This performance came out of no where for Cooks with his previous season-high being 49 yards through the air. Cooks remains in the WR3 conversation moving forward for fantasy managers.
Brandin Cooks caught one of his two targets for seven yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
In a game where Dak Prescott completed 29 of 44 passes, Cooks was an afterthought. He finished with the sixth-most Dallas receiving yards and nothing indicates that he will become an integral part of this offense moving forward. With so many weapons on the Cowboys' offense, Cooks shouldn't even be started in emergencies.
Brandin Cooks caught 3-of-4 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 43-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Cooks was able to finish with a solid stat line in Week 8. He only caught three passes over the course of the day but made the most of them by taking one to the house in Dallas' blowout win over the Rams. He has struggled with consistency this year, so fantasy managers should continue to avoid him moving forward, even with this offense on the upward trajectory.
