Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Cooks (quad) did not practice Tuesday. This is a downgrade after being limited in Monday's practice. It's a concern with the Texans kicking off in two days. Wednesday's injury report is crucial for Cooks, as another "DNP" would put him on the wrong side of questionable against the Chiefs. @Rotoworldhe'll be active for the season opener assuming he doesn't have a setback.
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Cooks is a game-time decision tonight. He has an injured quadricep, and while he's arguably the Texans' new WR1, I think he's a pass for me this evening. The Texans have enough receiving talent elsewhere -- Randall Cobb, Will Fuller, Darren Fells, Duke Johnson -- that I think they'll be able to put him in a limited role. I don't think that Cooks will be able to get the separation he needs tonight, so I would look elsewhere for wide receiver help.Despite the questionable tag, Corey Davis should be good to go for Monday Night Football. There's a good chance that he draws Denver's new corner, A.J. Bouye, in coverage this week, and Bouye shut Davis down for three catches and 44 yards the last time the two played each other. Davis brings neither a consistent floor or much upside to the table, so I'd avoid starting him in either redraft or DFS.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 We saw the numbers with A.J. Brown dramatically increase when Ryan Tannehill came on the field, but why didn't we see a bump from Davis? Well, it does help that Tannehill and Brown were working together as backups prior to the 2019 season in training camp. Now that Davis has had some time to work with Tannehill, we could see a bump in production. If the Broncos are going to use A.J. Bouye to shadow anyone, it'd be Brown, and that would leave Davis against Devontae Harris, who was destroyed in coverage last year, allowing 31/296/3 on just 44 targets in coverage. The Broncos cornerback depth is one of the biggest weaknesses on their team, and the Titans should be exploiting that, depending on who's lined up against Harris. Here's something that could blow your mind: Davis has totaled 21 targets over his last five games, while Brown saw 20 targets in that span. You can't start Davis knowing how bad he was throughout 2019, but don't be surprised if he makes a splash now that Brown is seeing a lot more attention. *Update* He's apparently dealing with a hamstring injury that had him limited in practice this week.
