Shark Bites

Texans WR Brandin Cooks has been activated from the COVID list. He'll return for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. Cooks posted 8-101 and 7-102-2 lines in his last 2 outings before missing Week 16.

Recent Shark Bites

Texans WR Brandin Cooks caught all 7 targets for 57 yards and a score in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. It was nice fantasy efficiency after an erratic start to the season. He'll get a potentially challenging matchup with the Jaguars before a Week 6 bye.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks drew 12 targets in Sunday's season opener, accounting for 32.4% of QB Davis Mills' total pass attempts. He caught 7 of those for 82 yards, including a 42-yarder. RB Rex Burkhead was the only other Texan to see more than 3 targets in the game. Chris Moore and Nico Collins tied for 2nd among wideouts with 3 apiece. Collins ran much closer to Cooks in usage, though, running a route on 78% of Mills' dropbacks. Cooks hit 92.7%, with Moore well behind at 51.2%. Cooks looks like the only usable Houston passing-game piece right now, but there's room for Collins to work his way into deeper-league contention.

The Texans have agreed to a 2-year extension with WR Brandin Cooks. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Houston will pay Cooks just less than $20 million per season through 2024. Clearly, this means he's not going anywhere in trade (at least this offseason). Cooks finished 21st among PPR wideouts last season and is going much lower than that in early 2022 fantasy football drafts.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks suffered a knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Chargers, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Cooks' absence leaves WR Nico Collins as the best bet for targets in Houston -- but he's only in play in DFS tournaments.
