Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
While Cooks has only gotten in the end zone two games this season, he has been about as consistent as they come in terms of yards. This is going to be a shootout against the Raiders in Mexico City, so consider him a WR1 once again.Thomas has been cruising lately, but this week he draws a challenging Bengals' secondary. It isn't enough to make him unstartable, but it does move him down into the low-end WR2 range.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Oakland is 15th against fantasy receivers, but Cooks should still be an elite fantasy option coming off the bye week.Thomas has scored a touchdown in back-to-back weeks, but he is only a WR3 in a bad quarterback situation.
