Andrew Gould

Cooks played a week after suffering a concussion, but he caught just two passes in an uncharacteristically sluggish day from the Rams's passing offense. He's still on pace for 1,346 receiving yards despite taking a goose-egg in Week 5, so expect better days against San Francisco's 25th-ranked passing defense.Diggs' down days this season have come against Tre'Davious White and Patrick Peterson, so he's still a top-shelf option despite falling comfortably behind teammate Adam Thielen. He should have a better outing against a banged-up Jets secondary that has ceded four 100-yard receivers this season. Only the Eagles have allowed more receptions to wideouts (96) than Gang Green (95), so this is a week where Thielen and Diggs can both deliver WR1 value.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
San Francisco is 23rd against fantasy wide receivers and Cooks should benefit from having the concussion another week behind him. WR Adam Thielen has been the featured weapon in their offense, but Diggs has had a good season too and he should thrive against the Jets secondary.
