Brandin Cooks is reportedly available for trade

Brandin Cooks is available for trade, per Jeff Howe of the Athletic.

Fantasy Impact

The Rams are looking to shed salary and restock their draft picks, making Cooks available for a trade. Cooks is coming off a down season, where he totaled 42 catches for 583 yards and two touchdowns across 14 games. His current deal is five years for $81 million. The 26-year-old produced four consecutive 1,000 yards season before 2019. With the enormous contract, it may be hard to find a trade partner for Cooks.

Brandin Cooks could be asked to restructure contract

The Rams could ask wide receiver Brandin Cooks to restructure his current deal with the team.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks is set to make $16.8 million in 2020 following a very disappointing season. While he carries too much dead money in his deal to warrant cutting outright, the team could ask him to take a reduction in salary to stay in Los Angeles beyond the 2020 season. Cooks is still only 26 years old. After entering the 2019 season as a WR2 on most draft boards, he's currently the WR47 based on our expert consensus rankings.

Brandin Cooks totals 40 yards in Week 17

Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 40 yards in the Rams' 31-24 Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks cleared 60 receiving yards just twice in 2019. However, he dealt with some concussion issues during the middle of the season. Another problem was Jared Goff's inconsistent play. The 26-year-old is probably a WR3 (at best) entering 2020.

Brandin Cooks finds the end zone on Saturday night

Brandin Cooks caught four passes for 39 yards and a score in the Rams' 34-31 Week 16 loss to the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

This was Cooks' first touchdown since Week 2 of the season. He now has a combined 14 targets over his past two games and will be a WR3 in Week 17 against Arizona.

Brandin Cooks catches four passes in Week 15

Brandin Cooks caught 4-of-8 targets for 46 yards in the Rams' 44-21 Week 15 loss to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks' 46 receiving yards are his most since Week 7. It has been a disappointing season as he has also dealt with concussion issues. He'll be tough to trust in Week 16 against the 49ers.
