Derek Lofland

Evans has not done much in 2 games, but he has a great matchup against a horrible Giants secondary.I think Cooks is a low-upside WR3 on the road against a Browns D that has a good enough pass rush to prevent Cooks from having a long touchdown reception.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Evans has played second fiddle to Godwin the first two weeks, as he is noticeably hindered by his illness. After a long week, he should be healthy and fully ready to take advantage of this bad defense.Cooks' targets make him riskier than his two counterparts, but his big play ability makes him a touchdown threat from anywhere on the field.
