Cooks has gone five games without a touchdown and collected just 205 total yards in the last four contests. Robert Woods received more targets in each time. He's not looking like a trustworthy WR1 these days, but the Rams need a win to take Wild Card Weekend off, and no team has relinquished more touchdowns to wideouts (23) than the 49ers. He's a high-upside WR2 to start during the final weekend. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams need to win this game to earn the bye, Cooks is on the WR1 radar this week.
