Most players would see their efficiency go up when heading to the Patriots, but coming from the Saints and Drew Brees, it's unlikely. In a recent study I did, the Saints wide receivers have totaled 24 WR1 performances over the last three years, compared to 17 for the Patriots. He'll have WR1 weeks, but he'll be frustrating to own just like every other wide receiver drafted in his range. His upside is worth dealing with the frustrations.

Brandin Cooks putting on a clinic in joint practices

According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, Brandin Cooks has been impressive throughout the offseason and has "put on a clinic" during joint practices with the Jaguars this week.

Fantasy Impact

Cook's field-stretching ability adds an explosive element that the Patriots' passing attack and expect Tom Brady to look for him often this season. But the team also does not care about fantasy numbers so there will be weeks when Cooks is a decoy and players like Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski see all the targets. Cooks is worth an early round pick but will have some big weeks mixed in with some games with low production.
