Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
After a couple of slow weeks, Sutton erupted in Week 5, catching seven passes for 120 yards and scoring his first touchdown of the season. Sutton has 644 air yards for the season and trails only Davante Adams in that category. But while Adams produces nearly every week, Sutton has had two 100-yard games this season and has been held under 50 receiving yards in the other three. Sutton ranks as a midrange WR2 this week against the Raiders, who are giving up 16.1 fantasy points per game to wide receivers, the third-lowest total in the league.Kudos to Chris Moore and Chris Conley on their touchdowns last week, but Cooks is still the only Texans receiver who matters for fantasy. The return of Nico Collins from a shoulder injury either this week or next could change that, but we'll need to see something from Collins first. Cooks was held to 3-23-0 on five targets last week, and he's been held under 50 yards in two straight. Is it really a surprise that Bill Belichick and the Patriots, notorious for scheming to erase an opponent's top offensive weapon, chose to focus on Cooks? He's the Texans' most dangerous playmaker by far - their only one, really - and now he's due to make some plays. Cooks will be facing a Colts defense that's had trouble with small, fast receivers, giving up 4-100-2 to Tyler Lockett in Week 1 and 9-125-2 to Tyler Lockett in Week 5. Regard Cooks as a high-end WR3 this week. He's worth considering in DraftKings contests at an affordable $5,800.
Derek Lofland

The Raiders are 2nd against fantasy wide receivers this year, Sutton is coming off a great game in Pittsburgh and he should be considered a low-end WR2.The Colts are 29th against fantasy wide receivers, but Cooks has been the 57th and 83rd ranked fantasy wide receiver the last two weeks after a very strong start to the season. He is a boom / bust WR3 that is trending in the wrong direction.
