Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Cooks only saw five targets last week, but he put up a solid 4-85-0 stat line on them. Additionally, Cooks reeled in a nice touchdown grab but it was called back due to an offensive holding penalty. He's done nothing but produce for your lineups here recently and he should be viewed as a mid-range WR2 this week with upside.Fitzgerald became heavily involved last week, but Murray's inability to push the ball downfield could have played a role in that. Assuming that Murray's back and fully healthy, Fitzgerald should return to his backup role in this offense. He's not worth looking at for fantasy this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He had his five-game streak of eight-plus targets ended in Week 11 but was still able to total 85 yards. He's totaled at least 60 yards in five of his last six games, with the one exception being the wind game against the Browns. The Lions were a matchup to target earlier in the season, though they've been getting better as the year goes on. If the Lions don't use Desmond Trufant to shadow Fuller, Cooks will see him a lot in coverage, and that's a good thing. On the season, he's allowed 19-of-26 passing for 248 yards and two touchdowns in his coverage. That amounts to 2.17 PPR points per target. The Lions aren't used to teams throwing on them a whole lot because their run defense is so soft, but we saw what happens when receivers get targeted against them last week; the Panthers trio of receivers combined for 22/243/1. Knowing the targets will be there, Cooks should be in starting lineups as a solid WR3 with upside this week.
