Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks caught four balls for 59 yards in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons. Cooks was targeted seven times, which tied for third on the team. He'll have a tougher matchup next week against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are among the better half of teams that have defended the receiver position the last three weeks. Cooks will be a high-end WR3 in Week 8.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks finished with four receptions, 59 yards and seven targets in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Spin: It was another so-so stat line for Cooks, but actually his best stat total since Week 4. He has failed to score a touchdown since Week 2, also. Cooks has devolved into more of a low-end WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues heading into Week 8 against the Bengals in London.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks has been irrelevant for a couple of weeks for fantasy owners. He left the Oct. 3 game with a concussion, and the entire Rams offense was plugged up last week. He had four catches for 47 yards in the two games combined. He has an awesome matchup against the Atlanta Falcons this week. They are the worst at defending the position in the league. They've allowed just over 15 catches for 219 yards and nearly two touchdowns per game to receivers over the last five games. Cooks is a low-end WR2 option for Week 7.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks didn't get anything going in the loss to the 49ers on Sunday, finishing with three catches for only 18 yards. To Cooks' credit, the entire team fell victim to the smothering 49ers Defense, and while it was good to see him back in the lineup after suffering a concussion in Week 5, it was a disappointing performance, to say the least. The veteran will look to get back on track against the struggling Falcons in Week 7.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught three passes for 18 yards and rushed twice for 14 yards in a 20-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: The Los Angeles passing attack was horrendous as a whole, and Cooks was one of the many victims. On the plus side, he has a golden opportunity to bounce back against a struggling Atlanta defense in Week 7.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks should be in uniform this week as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He likely will receive a solid amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) remained a limited participant in a walk-through practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Fantasy Spin: If Cooks ends up being ruled inactive, both Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp will take on even larger roles than normal. Josh Reynolds could warrant flex consideration with a few extra targets.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) has been asymptomatic for a concussion this week and is expected to play in Week 6 against the 49ers, according to head coach Sean McVay. The Rams should have their full array of receivers available in this big divisional matchup. Cooks has been the most hit or miss between he, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods in 2019, but he'll return to WR2 upside if he suits up in Los Angeles. Kupp has become a strong weekly WR1, while Woods also maintains WR2 upside in this offense.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) was limited in practice on Wednesday after suffering a concussion last Thursday. Cooks has had extra time to heal for Week 6 against the 49ers, but he must pass through the league's concussion protocol in order to have a chance. Until he gets the clearance, Cooks is questionable, at best, for this weekend. If he can't get the green light, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods will have even higher ceilings, while tight end Gerald Everett and receiver Josh Reynolds will have bigger roles.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks needs to be medically cleared before he can play, so his status for Week 6 will not be known until later in the week. He is a weekly starting option when he is healthy.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks (concussion) has been placed in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Sean McVay. McVay did say that Cooks has been asymptomatic since suffering the head injury in the Thursday night loss. The 26-year-old suffered the injury on his only catch (a 29-yarder) late in the game. He also had a 27-yard rush. Cooks has extra time to heal up before Week 6, but he might still be questionable for that affair. If he misses any time, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp will both have WR1 upside, while Josh Reynolds would be forced into three-wide sets.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol after leaving the Week 5 game early.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks will have over a week to recover, so his status for Week 6 is up in the air. He should be a weekly starting option when he is healthy.
Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) will likely be placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, according to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry.
Fantasy Spin: This was to be expected. He'll have a week-plus to clear protocol before the team's Week 6 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) caught one pass for 29 yards and ran once for 27 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5 prior to being removed for a head injury.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks certainly made the most of his touches, but it was the third time this season that his involvement in the offense has been minimal. He'll get extra time to bounce back from the likely concussion he suffered Thursday night so monitor his status heading into Week 6.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks (head) was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion on Thursday night against the Seahawks. He was injured on a 29-yard catch when Seattle cornerback Shaquill Griffin landed hard on Cooks. The catch was the wideout's only one of the game, although he did have a 27-yard run on an end-around early in the second half. Cooks will automatically be questionable for Week 6 against the Niners if he doesn't return, although he'll have extra time to recover. If Cooks misses any time, both Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods will have even more upside. Of the three receivers, Cooks has the most volatility from a fantasy standpoint.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) exited the Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks and went to the locker room with trainers to be evaluated for a concussion.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks landed hard after hauling in a long pass early in the fourth quarter. If he ends up missing time, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods would become even stronger fantasy options.
Before the season began, most fantasy owners considered Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks to have both a volatile floor and a high ceiling. While Cooks certainly has maintained his WR2 value, whats pleasantly surprising is that the veteran has shown remarkable consistency. Against the Buccaneers, Cooks had six receptions for 71 yards on nine targets and remained heavily involved in the offense as a deep-ball threat. This should bode well heading into a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, whose secondary gave up a big day to fellow speedster and deep-ball threatJohn Rossin Week 1. Lock Cooks in as WR2 in all formats (upgraded slightly in standard scoring due to his high yardage per game) with a WR1 ceiling.
Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught six of his nine targets for 71 in a 55-40 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Cooks has just one touchdown this year, but he has topped 70 yards in three straight games. He offers a WR3 floor with WR1 upside because of his big-play ability.
When Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks opened the season with two catches for 39 yards, many fantasy owners panicked that the stars workload had been drastically cut. Three weeks into the season, these concerns seem distant. Appearing to be second in line for targets behind counterpart Cooper Kupp, Cooks dominated a beleaguered Cleveland Browns secondary for eight receptions on 12 targets for 112 yards in the teams Week 3 20-13 victory. While teammate Robert Woods, who has had the lowest target share among starting Rams receivers in the past two games, may rebound and command more volume, Cooks deep-ball ability and fantastic route-running will always keep him relevant, especially against a Tampa Bay defense that gave up a 75-yard TD to tight endEvan Engram in Week 3. Consider Cooks a mid-tier WR2 in standard and PPR formats with potential WR1 upside.
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks had eight receptions on 12 targets for a team-high 112 yards in the teams 20-13 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Cooks picked up where he left off in Week 2, as he remained quarterback Jared Goffs deep-ball target on Sunday night. His performance solidified that the star wide receiver still has a WR1 ceiling. However, his floor still remains relatively volatile on a week-to-week basis --Robert Woods remains heavily targeted in the offense -- but Cooks recent rapport with Goff keeps him as a high-end WR2 in all formats.
