 Cooks had been so consistent all season, then over the past two weeks he has gone for just 3 receptions and 55 yards combined. While another bust to that degree is unlikely, he is merely a WR2 this week for the first time all season.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
It's fair to say that Ingram was a disappointment on Thursday against the Falcons, since he essentially had the backfield all to himself after Alvin Kamara left with a concussion but had one of his worst games since the Adrian Peterson trade. Consider it a one-off, as Ingram had been one of the most reliable backs in all of fantasy for most of the season. He'll face a tough opposing defense this week in the Jets, who allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs. But regardless of if Kamara play, Ingram's track record makes him a must-start option, even in the difficult matchup. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Jets are 9th against fantasy running backs, but the Saints running game should be good to go on 10 days rest. The Steelers have allowed the third most points to fantasy receivers in the last 5 weeks, Cooks should be a solid WR1 this week.
