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.

Brandin Cooks (neck) remains limited on Thursday

Brandin Cooks (neck) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks was listed as a limited participant leading up to Week 14 and was ultimately ruled out. The 27-year-old seemingly has a better chance at suiting up against the Colts this weekend following the weekend of rest. Fantasy managers should consider him on the WR2/3 borderline if Cooks is able to go for the fantasy semi-finals.
