NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Texans WR Brandin Cooks "is a true game-day decision" with his quad injury. "But he has improved the past 24 hours, and there's optimism he'll play" in the Thursday night opener, Pelissero adds. In most cases you should still skip over Cooks for your fantasy lineup. Even if he plays, Cooks would likely be at an elevated risk for re-injury, and there have already been murmurs about the Texans limiting his Week 1 role. If Cooks doesn't play, Kenny Stills would likely start in his place. Treat Stills as merely a DFS option, though, outside of deep leagues.
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.
