Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 A-Rob has been a thorn in the side of every fantasy manager this season, though he remains on the WR3 map for a favorable Week 7 tilt with the Bucs while so many teams are on bye.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
What Cooks is doing in this Texans offense is inspiring. Despite the atrocious offensive production, Cooks is producing for fantasy and he's now the WR22 on the season. If Tyrod returns to the lineup this week, that can only mean good things for Cooks and his fantasy outlook. At this point, he belongs in your starting lineup every week as a high-end/mid-range WR3 that you know isn't going to crush your lineup no matter what else is going on in the offense around him. He moves up in the rankings this week simply due to so many other teams on bye though, so he can be viewed as a low-end WR2.Here's the good news for Robinson from a fantasy perspective: Over the last three weeks he has seen a 24.2% team target share. This is a higher target share percentage than players like DK Metcalf, Deandre Hopkins, Adam Thielen, Michael Pittman Jr, and Mike Williams to name a few. However, it has only resulted in 15 total targets due to the lack of passing volume in this Bears offense. With the Bears slowing down the pace of play and committing to their run game more, Justin Fields hasn't been asked to throw the ball a ton and the receiving options in Chicago are struggling because of it. In this matchup against the Buccaneers though, the Bears are not going to be able to run the ball as efficiently as they have been over the past couple of games and we could finally see Fields move over the 30 pass attempts threshold. Robinson's disappointed a ton of fantasy managers so far this season, but the path for opportunity is still there. He can be viewed as a mid-range WR3 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooks bounced back last week from two subpar games with 13 targets, 9 receptions, and 89 yards. He has a tough road matchup this week and he is probably no more than a boom / bust WR2 against the Cardinals 24th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
