The Texans have traded the 57th pick in the NFL Draft to the Rams for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick in 2022. Cooks joins the trio of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb atop Houston's WR depth chart and should be the best bet to lead the group in targets. His departure from the Rams leaves room for WR Josh Reynolds to capture more playing time -- barring a significant WR addition in the upcoming draft. The Rams also cut Cooks' playing time in the 2nd half of last season, preferring to get more TEs on the field.
Texans WR Brandin Cooks (neck) practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll return for Sunday's game against the Colts and is safe to get back into fantasy lineups as a lower-end WR2.
The Texans expect WR Brandin Cooks (neck) to return for Sunday's game against the Colts, according to The Houston Chronicle. Cooks was seemingly close to playing vs. the Bears this past week. He's back in the WR2 mix for Week 15. And his return is good news for QB Deshaun Watson.
Texans WR Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) is officially inactive for today’s game against the Bears. Keke Coutee (knee) is active and suddenly looks like QB Deshaun Watson’s #1 WR. WR Chad Hansen and TE Jordan Akins also project for targets boosts.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans WR Brandin Cooks is not expected to play today against the Bears, "barring significant late improvement." He's dealing with foot and neck issues. Cooks is officially questionable, and ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported that Houston expected the WR to play. So we'll need to confirm his status when the inactives come out at about 11:30 a.m. ET. For now, though, expect to not have Cooks available for your fantasy football lineups.
ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Texans WRs Brandin Cooks (foot, neck) and Keke Coutee (knee) are expected to play vs. the Bears today. Neither guy seemed to be in any danger of missing this one. Both are fine to get into fantasy lineups.
