Brandin Cooks
WR - HOU
at IND, Sun 1pm EDT
Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Harris was inches away last week from having two touchdowns. Instead, the play was reversed and Harris went from having six additional points to losing two due to a fumble right at the goal-line. Thankfully, he was able to come through for fantasy purposes and find the end zone in a plus matchup before leaving with an injury, which he is still reportedly dealing with this week. We'll need to monitor the practice reports this week for Harris, but if he does play, he's worth starting as a low-end RB2. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 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
FantasyPros
Damien Harris is battling a rib and chest injury and he faces a Cowboys D that is 6th against fantasy backs.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.
