Expert 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
Brandin Cooks has quietly been turning it on lately. Since week five, he has only seen less than eight targets one time. In a plus matchup against a leaky DET secondary, he is a volume-based WR2 play with plenty of upside for Thanksgiving football. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He had his five-game streak of eight-plus targets ended in Week 11 but was still able to total 85 yards. He's totaled at least 60 yards in five of his last six games, with the one exception being the wind game against the Browns. The Lions were a matchup to target earlier in the season, though they've been getting better as the year goes on. If the Lions don't use Desmond Trufant to shadow Fuller, Cooks will see him a lot in coverage, and that's a good thing. On the season, he's allowed 19-of-26 passing for 248 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. That amounts to 2.17 PPR points per target. The Lions aren't used to teams throwing on them a whole lot because their run defense is so soft, but we saw what happens when receivers get targeted against them last week; the Panthers trio of receivers combined for 22/243/1. Knowing the targets will be there, Cooks should be in starting lineups as a solid WR3 with upside this week.Sure, Woods sees in-between 5-8 targets in 8-of-9 games coming into Week 11 against the Bucs, but then suddenly gets targeted 15 times. Sometimes you just have to accept the volatility of the NFL and move on. Woods now has seven touchdowns on the season, which ties a career high. There have been times where McVay changes the offensive plan mid-season and you wonder if that happened a few weeks back, as Goff is throwing the ball a lot more over the last month. Unfortunately, Woods did see 10 targets against the 49ers the last time they played, though they only netted four catches for 29 yards, but he did sneak in a touchdown to salvage his fantasy day. There have been rumors that the 49ers might get Richard Sherman back from injury this week, though Jason Verrett has done a great job in his place, allowing just 16-of-25 passing for 162 yards and one touchdown. Whichever one plays, that's who Woods will see about 40-45 percent of the time, but the Rams have done a great job moving him around to get him better matchups. With the increased passing volume, the arrow is pointing up for Woods, even if this matchup isn't all great. Consider him a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 who comes with a solid floor.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooks has only 1 touchdown in his last four games and he has cooled a bit since strong games in Week 5 and 6. Cooks is a boom / bust WR3 against the Lions 20th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.Woods did have 12 fantasy points the last time these teams met, despite Jared Goff struggling in that game. Woods is low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cooks only saw five targets last week, but he put up a solid 4-85-0 stat line on them. Additionally, Cooks reeled in a nice touchdown grab but it was called back due to an offensive holding penalty. He's done nothing but produce for your lineups here recently and he should be viewed as a mid-range WR2 this week with upside.
