Brandin Cooks Week 3 Outlook - Cowboys at Cardinals

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sat, Sep 23rd 2023, 4:05am EDT

Cooks opened the week with a limited practice (knee), but he upgraded to back-to-back full sessions to close the week. Cooks doesn't carry an injury designation into Week 3. This season, in his small sample against zone coverage, Cooks has a 33.3% Target share, a 34.2% air-yard share, and a 40% TPRR (2.1 YPRR). Even going back to last season, Cooks still has the juice to get loose against zone. Last season, once Houston came to their senses and transferred Cooks back to a field stretching role, he crushed against zone. After Week 7, among 68 qualifying wide receivers, Cooks ranked 22nd in receiving grade and 21st in YPRR. Cooks will run about 81% of his routes against Marco Wilson (81.3% catch rate and 139.6 passer rating) and Kei'Trel Clark (66.7% catch rate and 95.8 passer rating). Week 3 Positional Value: WR3/4 with WR2 upside
