Cooks heads to New England, where he'll continue to be in an explosive offense, but will also be riskier due to Bill Belichick's malleable offense. The hope is that Cooks is just an overall better receiver than the aging Julian Edelman and will take his job and targets, but it likely won't be that easy. Cooks gets a slight drop in ranking from me, but if he works out and becomes Brady's go-to target, then watch out.

Brandin Cooks retained by Patriots through 2018

The New England Patriots have picked up wide receiver Brandin Cooks' fifth-year option.

Fantasy Impact

Cooks will be retained by the Patriots through 2018. They picked up the 23-year-old wideout's fifth-year option over the weekend. Likely viewed as New England's biggest home run hitting threat at receiver, Cooks could be in store for yet another huge year for his fantasy owners. Since the Patriots employ a plethora of notable weapons on offense that includes Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Rob Gronkowski, Malcolm Mitchell, plus, a reliable stable of running backs, Cooks is expected to see the least amount of attention from opposing defensive backs in his career. He is in the mid-range WR1 tier entering the 2017 fantasy draft prep season.
