There have been just nine wide receivers who've finished as top-24 fantasy options in at least four of the last five seasons: Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry, DeAndre Hopkins, Antonio Brown, Davante Adams, Amari Cooper, and... Cooks. Keep in mind he's done that while playing for three different teams, so he's essentially team-proof. Concussions were problematic in 2019 and will be a problem moving forward in his career, as another one could end it. While on the field, though, he's proven to have a WR2 floor in the NFL. We can't pretend that going to Deshaun Watson isn't an upgrade from Jared Goff, either. The issue is that Will Fuller plays a similar role and has chemistry with Watson. Cooks can likely be drafted as a WR4, but he'll be a starter when he's on the field.

Brandin Cooks: Bill O'Brien not worried about concussion history

Texans coach Bill O'Brien says he isn't worried about Brandin Cooks' concussion history.

Fantasy Impact

"Yes, he's had concussions, but he's only missed two games since 2015" O'Brien said. While true, we are talking about a wideout that could be one blow to the head away from possibly needing to retire. If Cooks can remain healthy, however, there is reason to think he can bounce back with Deshaun Watson as his quarterback. The 26-year-old scored just two touchdowns in 14 games with the Rams last year.
