 While Cooks didn't do much to impress last weekend versus the easy Titans' defense, he did see 9 targets which has to encourage owners. Granted, his matchup is much more difficult this week, but with 8+ targets, he certainly has a chance to break a big play or two.
Dan Harris

Ajayi lost an early fumble against the Falcons, but recovered to gain 98 total yards on 18 touches. He's clearly the main back in Philadelphia, but it's unclear how much that will help him this weekend against the Vikings. Minnesota allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs this season, and will obviously try to limit Ajayi and force Nick Foles to beat them. Still, given the guaranteed 15 touches or so, Ajayi isn't the worst fantasy option at this stage of the game.Cooks was quiet against the Titans, catching just three of his nine targets. Unfortunately, he now draws an even tougher matchup against Jacksonville and its elite secondary. The exact coverage breakdown for the Jaguars against the Patriots is unclear in light of Rob Gronkowski's presence, but Cooks will likely see a mix of A.J. Bouye and Jalen Ramsey all game. That does not bode well for the speedy receiver, and he should be downgraded some from where he would be ranked in a neutral matchup.

The Vikings allow the fewest points to fantasy running backs and they will be keying on the run game. The Eagles running backs are not stellar options this week.The Jaguars allow the fewest points to fantasy receivers , but Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown had 7 receptions for 132 yards and 1 touchdown last week. Cooks could still have a big impact playing with QB Tom Brady.
