Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are just 26th against fantasy running backs, Breida has good RB2 appeal at home this week.I think Cooks is a low-upside WR3 on the road against a Browns D that has a good enough pass rush to prevent Cooks from having a long touchdown reception.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Breida was extremely efficient with his touches last week, but could find more difficult going forward due to Joe Staley's injury. However, he will again serve as the lead back with Tevin Coleman out.Cooks' targets make him riskier than his two counterparts, but his big play ability makes him a touchdown threat from anywhere on the field.
