Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
 We still don't know what's going on in Houston's receiving corps. When Fuller sits out, Cooks is the guy, but Fuller was able to practice this week. That said, Fuller also practiced the full week before he couldn't play on Sunday, so there's little certainty in this offense. Cooks is a low-end WR4 at best if Fuller is a full-go, and he shouldn't crack your lineups just because of a good Week 2 showing.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It hasn't been a great start to the season for Robinson, who caught just 3-of-9 targets for 33 yards against the Giants last week. He also dropped a pass that fell into the defenders hands for an interception. Fortunately, he has a matchup with the Falcons on deck. Their cornerback duo of Isaiah Oliver and A.J. Terrell is one to target with wide receivers. We've already watched four different receivers total 16-plus PPR points against them, and none of those wide receivers even saw double-digit targets. Knowing that Robinson has seen at least seven targets in 16 of his last 18 games, he's going to produce against a secondary that's allowing 2.01 PPR points per target. Plug him in as a low-end WR1 this week and expect results. He should be someone to consider as a discounted stud in cash games, too.It was good to see Cooks on the field in a full-time role, as his connection grew stronger with Deshaun Watson. He caught 5-of-8 targets for 95 yards, leading the team in a brutal matchup against the Ravens secondary. The Steelers aren't slouches either, as they've allowed just 16 receivers to score more than 11.2 PPR points against them since the start of last year. Why is that number significant? It's the average number of points it took to finish as a top-36 receiver in 2019. That's what you're looking for when starting any wide receiver, a top-36 performance. Cooks tends to do well against slower cornerbacks, and the Steelers duo of Joe Haden and Steven Nelson kind of fit in that group. Nelson ran a 4.49 when coming into the NFL while Haden ran a 4.52, though both are slower than they were when they came into the league. It's not a great matchup, but we'd give Cooks a solid bump if Fuller can't go or is limited throughout the week. For now, we'll assume Fuller plays after being limited in practice. Cooks should be in the high-end WR4 conversation whose arrow is trending up.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are just 29th against fantasy wide receivers, Robinson should have a good game on the road, but projecting his fantasy output is a challenge with Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Robinson looked to be a solid candidate to return WR1 production week in and week out heading into the season, but he simply has not been the same receiver on the field that we saw last year. While he's seeing the high target totals, he's not turning them into much for fantasy football. It's a great matchup for Robinson, so he deserves to be in your starting lineup, but you shouldn't be expecting anything more than high-end WR2 numbers this week.Cooks looked to be back from his injury that he had in week one and he put together a solid outing against a stout Ravens defense. With Fuller pulling a disappearing act, Cooks stepped in and turned 5 receptions into 95 yards through the air. This is another tough defense, but Cooks should be a fine option to roll out there as a WR3 this week.
