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
FantasyPros
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. 
Derek Lofland

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.
