Over the last six years, there have been just seven wide receivers who've finished top-24 in at least five of them. Those receivers are Mike Evans, Julio Jones, Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Amari Cooper, Jarvis Landry, and... Cooks. He's done it with four different quarterbacks, too. However, 2021 might be his toughest test yet, as it appears Tyrod Taylor will be his quarterback, and this is projected to be the lowest scoring offense in the league. Still, he's the clear-cut top option on this team and should be a lock to see 100-plus targets as long as he's healthy.

Brandin Cooks agrees to contract restructure

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the Houston Texans and Brandin Cooks have agreed to a contract restructure.

Fantasy Impact

In an effort to create cap space the Texans have restructured Cooks’ contract freeing up $6.5M. The veteran WR is coming off his fifth 1,000 yard season and currently projects to be the top wide receiver for the Texans with Will Fuller entering free agency. Cooks should see a lot of volume during 2021, but his success will ultimately depend on what the Texans decide to do with Deshaun Watson.
