Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Adams' usage has remained tasty with Carr. He's fifth in target share (32%), fourth in end zone targets per game, and fifth in weighted opportunity. He's 13th in PFF receiving grade (minimum ten targets). Adams will run about 67% of his routes against Roger McCreary and some combination of Chris Jackson and Caleb Farley (if Kristian Fulton isn't back). McCreary has allowed all seven targets in his coverage to be secured. Jackson is a wide receiver's best friend, allowing a 70.9% catch rate and 118.7 passer rating in his career. Farley has also been terrible, with a 70.6% catch rate and 117.0 in his young NFL tenure. Stefon Diggs went nuclear against this secondary, and Adams can do so in Week 3.Cooks might be another year older, but he's not ready to be put out to pasture yet. Among 57 wide receivers with ten or more targets, he's 30th in yards per route run but 47th in PFF receiving grade. These aren't damning numbers when you marry it with his insane volume and role. He's 11th in target share (30.1%) and 12th in weighted opportunity with a 36% air yard share. He'll run about 74% of his routes on the perimeter against Jaylon Johson and Kindle Vildor. Don't be surprised if the team does move him inside more this week. Johnson and Vildor have combined to allow a 55.5% catch rate and 77.0 passer rating. Teams have picked on slot corner Kyler Gordon through two games. He's defended the third-most targets in the NFL (18) allowing the most receiving yards in the NFL with a 155.8 passer rating.

Adams went from 17 targets, 10 receptions, 141 yards, and 1 TD in Week 1 to 7 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards, and 1 TD in Week 2. He should bounce back against a Titans D that is 29th against fantasy wide receivers.Cooks has 19 fantasy points through two weeks, an anemic Texans passing game has him staring at WR3 value early in the season.
