Expert 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooks has had 80-yards receiving or more in 3 of his last 4 games. With Will Fuller V suspended the rest of the season, Cooks should be a WR2 against the Colts 7th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.The Dolphins are 17th against fantasy running backs, Bernard is a low-upside flex option playing without Joe Burrow.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
As of right now, Cooks is the only WR that you should be looking to play in Houston. He certainly gets a huge boost with Will Fuller out for the year, Randall Cobb on IR, and Kenny Stills no longer with the team. He's been playing extremely well here lately and should see plenty of targets funneled his way. It's a tougher matchup on paper, but Cooks should see enough volume to be viewed as a high-end WR2.At this point, all the shine has worn off with Gio and he's now merely a bye week fill-in option. He's simply not getting enough volume to have sustainable fantasy value in a poor offense. He can be viewed as a mid-range RB3 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Bernard has 65 carries on the season, and he finally cracked his first 15-yard run last week. It went for... exactly 15 yards. We've watched his opportunity dwindle over the last few weeks, as he's totaled just 12, 13, and 10 touches over the last three games. He has totaled 63.5 percent of the team's opportunities in that time, but there just aren't a lot of touches to go around. There have been two games he's finished better than the RB20 this year, and he totaled 18 touches in each of those two games, opportunity that feels long gone. He also isn't part of a high-scoring team with Brandon Allen under center. The Dolphins have allowed 4.53 yards per carry and 6.25 yards per target, which are both well above the league average, though they've allowed just the 16th-most fantasy points per game to running backs. The reason? They've allowed a running back touchdown once every 30.1 touches, which is obviously not great for a guy like Bernard who's scored just four times on 99 touches this season. Oddly enough, a league-high 67 percent of carries inside the five-yard line have resulted as touchdowns against the Dolphins. Unfortunately, there haven't been many carries in that area against them. The Bengals have just a 15.8-point team-implied total in this game, so don't go attacking this game with Bernard, who's now down in the low-end RB3 territory.
