Previously, there had been some discussion centering around the other receiving options that the Texans have on their roster. There was the potential that someone else could step up and take advantage of the projected passing volume if the Texans were playing from behind a lot. However, those discussions should be happening no longer after what we witnessed in week two from this offense. Brandin Cooks saw a 48% target share in week two, which resulted in 14 total targets. The next highest target share on the team resulted in two total targets. Cooks has shattered expectations every single place he has been throughout his career and he's doing it again here in Houston this season. He now has more targets on the season than Cooper Kupp, Deebo Samuel, DJ Moore, etc. and is performing well with the opportunity. Cooks can be viewed as a safe high-end WR3 again this week.
