As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at new Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
Texans head coach/GM Bill O’Brien said he felt “really good” about Cooks’ health after a pre-trade physical, according to ESPN. The big question is the multiple concussions Cooks has sustained, but we can’t know how likely he is to suffer another. Cooks enters an offense that watched 28.1 percent of last year’s targets leave with DeAndre Hopkins. Four straight top-15 PPR finishes (2015-18) across three franchises make Cooks a prime candidate to fill in.
