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.

Brandin Cooks (illness) officially active for Week 13

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks (illness) is officially active and will play in Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks returned to practice Friday after missing two days with a non-COVID-19 illness. He is active and will be in his usual role as the Texans WR1. The 28-year-old has caught 62 passes for 704 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games in 2021. Cooks owns 28.2% of the team targets and is a solid fantasy WR2 against the Colts. The former first-round pick is 23rd among all wideouts in the latest FantasyPros expert consensus rankings.
