Brandin Cooks has quietly had a very strong NFL career. The 2021 outlook is very fuzzy with chaos falling upon the Texans. If Deshaun Watson plays QB, Cooks could be a serviceable WR3. With Tyrod Taylor at QB, Cooks is a WR4 at best and that seems the more likely scenario. If he drops in drafts considerably he may be a sneaky good addition to a roster. However, it's going to be a long, difficult season in Houston.

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.
