Brandin Cooks News

  • Brandin Cooks career year? · Jun 24, 2022

    Texans receiver Brandin Cooks could be in-line for a career year in 2022

    It's all guess work of course but it stands to reason that career marks across the board would be possible for Cooks, now in his third year with the team. Despite the team turmoil in 2021 and lack of consistent quarterback play, Cooks still managed a 90/1,037/6 stat line. When considering his career-high marks across multiple seasons of 84 receptions (2015), 1,204 yards (2018) and nine touchdowns (2015), it's not out of the realm of possibility given sophomore quarterback Davis Mills' development and more stability across the offense and coaching staff. Predicting the Texans' offensive production in 2022 is not an easy exercise and, regardless whether or not Cooks does have a career year, he's undoubtedly the WR1 for a team which will be relying heavily on its passing attack. The perennially under-appreciated receiver is ranked as DLF's WR44.

  • Brandin Cooks signs extension · Apr 8, 2022

    The Texans have signed receiver Brandin Cooks to a two-year extension

    The deal keeps Cooks in Houston through 2024 and provides sophomore quarterback Davis Mills with a valuable and dynamic go-to receiver to aid in his development. Cooks produced his sixth 1,000 yard season in 2021 and remains an undervalued dynasty asset due to his Houston affiliation but following his career-high 90 reception performance in 2021, the 28-year-old, who turns 29 in September, is locked into what should be another high-volume upside role for the rebuilding team. Cooks is listed as DLF's WR36.
