Brandin Cooks showing chemistry
Brandin Cooks - WR, HOU

Texans off-season receiver acquisition Brandin Cooks is showing great chemistry with quarterback Deshaun Watson

Dynasty Analysis

If the camp reports are accurate, Watson and Cooks, for that matter all Watson's receivers, have established great chemistry and are firing on all cylinders in camp. Cooks has been making play after play in camp, so much so that team reporters are suggesting they have "seen enough" and to "wrap him in bubble wrap" until the start of the season. For Cooks, more appropriately, the bubble wrap isn't a bad idea. Cooks was famously acquired to replace the traded-away DeAndre Hopkins (ARI), difficult shoes to fill and a different style of game entirely. Now with his fourth team in what is his seventh season in 2020, he'll try to stick with Watson and the Texans for the long haul. Cooks has reportedly suffered five "known" concussions since entering the league and while he remains unconcerned, the potential for a shortened-career should additional concussions follow is very real. Without knowing what is to come in that area, Brandin Cooks is poised to be the WR1 for the Texans in 2020 though consistency will be key and multiple reasons exist to keep his dynasty ranking, currently WR43, much more conservatively placed. Until we see consistent productivity, treat Cooks as no better than an upside WR4. Risk-on dynasty coaches can acquire the 26 year-old receiver relative to his current value in the hope he makes Texans-faithful forget about DeAndre Hopkins.
