Patriots | Brandin Cooks wants big plays

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 19:55:23 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks said he believes he will be able to showcase his explosiveness more often as the season goes on. "At the end of the day, I just want to stick to the process, perfect my craft and pay attention to the little details," Cooks said. "And I feel like it's going to come."

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has just two touchdowns this year, but he has still been a big part of the passing game, delivering at least 85 yards in four of the six games. He is locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 13:41:06 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught six passes for 93 yards against the New York Jets in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has been targeted at least six times in five games this season and has posted at least 85 yards in three of the last four games. He can be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks paces Pats receivers

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 22:18:46 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 85 yards (17 yards per catch) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5. Cooks was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has alternated solid outings with quiet ones, and his 85-yard showing Thursday night was a much better effort than his three-catch, 38-yard game against Carolina. While Cooks hasn't been the second coming of Randy Moss some speculated he'd be, he's someone that deserves a weekly spot as a WR2 based on upside alone.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks was a deep threat in Week 3

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 17:22:10 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks recorded 111 yards on deep passes in Week 3, which is the third most by a Patriots receiver in the past 12 years.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has been a terrific addition for the Patriots and has 256 yards and two touchdowns over the first three games of the season. He will remain a big part of the team's passing game and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Brandon Cooks has breakout game

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:56:38 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks was coming off a disappointing Week 2 performance but showed by the Patriots traded from him with his 131 yards. He should continue to be a focal point in the passing game against the Carolina Panthers and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks quiet against old team

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:57:20 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks managed just two receptions for 37 yards on four targets in his return to the New Orleans in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: The performance was rather disappointing considering the fact Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three touchdowns and Cooks was underneath very little of that. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the Texans at home.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks draws praise

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 09:16:16 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has shown great professionalism for a 23-year-old, according to quarterback Tom Brady. "I've been so impressed with his professionalism.. … We expect to perform at a championship level every day. For a 23-year-old to understand that and to buy into that, and then to work at that level, has been very impressive from my standpoint. Being around a lot of young receivers, that's one thing that's probably held a lot of people back. Brandin, I just love working with him and (I'm) excited for him this year," Brady said during his weekly interview with WEEI.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks' work ethic has been well-chronicled this offseason, so it isn't much of a surprise he has acclimated himself to the "Patriot Way" so quickly. Owners might be a bit apprehensive in using a second-round pick on him given New England's penchant for spreading the wealth, but Cooks is not a run-of-the-mill talent. He has top-10 and possibly top-five upside at his position in fantasy this season.

Patriots | One catch for Brandin Cooks

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 19:31:20 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught one pass for eight yards in a 30-28 preseason win over the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks has enormous upside in New England's offense, but the ample firepower available to Tom Brady could lead to the occasional dud. That will likely change if Julian Edelman's knee injury turns out to be serious, and if Edelman is out of the equation, Cooks needs to be treated as a WR1.

Patriots | Key Patriots to sit Thursday

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 13:56:20 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Brandin Cooks are not expected to play in the Patriots' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a shock to any. Playing stars simply isn't worth the risk early on in the preseason. This will have no impact on their respective fantasy values. As you were.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks putting on a clinic

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 09:14:42 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has been impressive throughout the offseason, and he has put on "a clinic" against the Jacksonville Jaguars during two days of joint practices at Gillette Stadium.

Fantasy Tip: The narrative surrounding Cooks since he arrived from New Orleans via trade this spring was he was a one-trick pony who would get swallowed up into the Patriots' spread-the-wealth passing game and be highly inconsistent as a result. Cooks is anything but a one-trick pony and has 10-touchdown upside in an offense that has lacked his big-play ability. All in all, he should be considered a top-10 receiver and a value pick if he last until the third round in fantasy drafts.
