Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's going to be interesting to see if Belichick gives Cooper the No. 1 treatment or if he gives it to the veteran Crabtree. Knowing that Carr is likely to throw the ball 40-plus times, I think both Cooper and Crabtree are solid options, though Cooper comes with the higher ceiling and lower floor. Through nine games, the Patriots have allowed 17 different wide receivers to finish top-32 this year, so you should feel confident putting Cooper in lineups as a risk/reward WR1 with massive upside in this contest. When they played against the Texans in Mexico last year, Cooper posted 57 yards and a touchdown. Coming out of the bye week, we would've expected more than five targets in two games for Watkins, but he has scored in each of the last two weeks, propping up his fantasy numbers. He's actually seen five or less targets in all but one game this year, so it's hard to love him in great matchups, let alone one against a Vikings team that's allowed just six wide receiver touchdowns this year. Believe it or not, there's a chance that the Vikings don't use Xavier Rhodes in shadow coverage, which would obviously benefit him greatly. Still, he's just a risk/reward WR4 at this point, though the talent remains.
Bobby Sylvester

Cooper has been up and down all season, but it has begun to level out more as he is getting consistent targets finally. This week against New England could be a big week if they key in on Crabtree. He should be regarded as a WR2. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Watkins is still getting few targets, but he's making the most of them lately, with 108 yards receiving and two touchdowns in his last two games despite only three catches. The Vikings are mediocre against opposing wide receivers, but Watkins' fate likely depends on if Xavier Rhodes shadows him. If he does, then Watkins is unlikely to have success. If not, then Watkins should see an uptick in targets and have an opportunity to make plays. Given Robert Woods' success recently, it's simply unclear who Rhodes will be assigned to. That leaves Watkins as a borderline Flex play with a wide range of outcomes.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cooper has a great matchup and he had the bye week to reset his season. He is in the WR1 discussion against the Patriots 30th ranked fantasy receiver defense.
