What Cooks is doing in this Texans offense is inspiring. Despite the atrocious offensive production, Cooks is producing for fantasy and he's now the WR22 on the season. If Tyrod returns to the lineup this week, that can only mean good things for Cooks and his fantasy outlook. At this point, he belongs in your starting lineup every week as a high-end/mid-range WR3 that you know isn't going to crush your lineup no matter what else is going on in the offense around him. He moves up in the rankings this week simply due to so many other teams on bye though, so he can be viewed as a low-end WR2.
