While many continue to prop Cooks up as a low-end WR1, I urge you to stay away from that territory when it comes to him. The Sean McVay offense doesn't cater to one wide receiver, and it's unlikely they take targets away from Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, who were both extremely efficient last season. We saw Sammy Watkins finish with 70 targets in this exact role last year, and that was despite them giving up a second-round pick to acquire him. While I'd expect Cooks to see more than that with a full offseason to work with the offense, it'd be a stretch to see him finish with anything more than 100 targets. There were just three wide receivers who finished top-24 last year with less than 100 targets, so while it's doable, it's not a given.

Brandin Cooks signs five-year extension

Brandin Cooks has signed a five-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Rams. Cooks was acquired by the Rams this offseason in a trade with the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

The terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed, but Cooks will now be under contract through the 2023 season. Cooks has posted over 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons, and he should play a heavy role in the Rams' young offense moving forward. He's currently the WR23 in our consensus rankings.
