Tyrod Taylor has only thrown for 265 passing yards on 50 total pass attempts over the past two weeks combined and that has certainly limited Cooks production from a fantasy standpoint. After seeing 14 targets in Week 9, Cooks has gone on to just see 8 total the past two weeks and he has a combined 63 receiving yards to show for it. While he did score last week to save his fantasy outing, Cooks is not coming with as high of a floor as we had come to expect earlier on in the season. He's still worth playing in this matchup, of course, and we should see the Colts jump out to a large lead which will force more passing volume for the Texans. However, we have to be aware that Cooks isn't bringing as much safety as we once thought. He can be viewed as a high-end WR3 this week.
