Cooks needed to step up for the Patriots against the Jaguars and he certainly did, catching six of eight targets for 100 yards. He now has 17 targets in the Patriots' two playoff games, and he should likely see another eight or nine in the Super Bowl against the Eagles. Ronald Darby and Jalen Mills have improved as the season has gone on, but neither is a shutdown cornerback. Given his projected volume, expect Cooks to have a solid game in the Super Bowl and be one of, if not the best option at receiver.

Cooks had 6 receptions for 100 yards in the AFC Championship Game and the Eagles secondary is not nearly as tough as the Jaguars. Cooks could have a huge Super Bowl.
