Brandin Cooks, WR, Texans

What You Need to Know:

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The Deshaun Watson situation is a major concern for Cooks. QBs Tyrod Taylor and/or Davis Mills would be a massive downgrade -- and the worst QBs Cooks has played with as a pro.

The good news? Cooks was great last year, turns just 28 in September and should dominate Texans targets this season with Will Fuller gone.

The efficiency and TD chances will take a hit sans Watson. But even then, talent and volume should get Cooks to at least WR3 level. And if he gets Watson back, we’re talking about a likely top 20 WR.

Cooks is a strong value at his current WR41 ADP.
