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.Reason will prevail. Contradicting calls for Jerry Jones to go all out, the Cowboys will give Elliott some well-deserved rest in Week 17. He averaged a gargantuan 25.4 touches and 133.4 total yards per game, clearing 100 in eight of the last nine. The Giants are one of the NFL's softest opponents against the run without Damon Harrison and Landon Collins, so Rod Smith is an appealing replacement and DFS flier.

 Jerry Jones claiming DAL will play starters as normal even though they're locked into No. 4 seed. In 2016, he claimed same thing when they were locked into No. 1 seed. Dak two series, Zeke DNP, Dez 18 snaps.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams need to win this game to earn the bye, Cooks is on the WR1 radar this week.
