    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks signed a five-year contract extension Tuesday, July 17. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Cooks, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods comprise an underrated wide receiver corps for the Rams. Unfortunately for Cooks, there may be too many mouths to feed for him to be viewed as more than a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3. He's more the latter in a PPR setup.

  • Posted: 6/29/2018 6:40pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks has been 'able to get to that deep ball' consistently over the last few years, according to head coach Sean McVay.

    Huddle Up: His ability to deliver big plays is undeniable, but much like last season when he was in New England, Cooks could find himself being too dependent on big plays because of all the weapons around him. He's worth grabbing as a WR3, but don't overpay for a few big weeks.

  • Posted: 5/25/2018 7:43pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks and QB Jared Goff connecting in the passing game has 'become the norm' during OTAs, according to Myles Simmons of TheRams.com.

    Huddle Up: The Rams have plenty of firepower on offense, which could limit Cooks' ceiling a bit. He should still be a strong WR3 and is always capable of producing big plays.

  • Posted: 4/3/2018 5:46pm ET

    The Los Angeles Rams have 'already expressed interest' in an extension with newly acquired WR Brandin Cooks, who is entering his contract year in 2018.

    Huddle Up: This would seem rather obvious, as teams don't typically trade away first-round picks for one-year rentals. However, Cooks may not be in a rush to sign given the fact that Allen Robinson signed a free-agent deal worth $14 million per year and Sammy Watkins inked one worth $16 million per year. The Rams' best recourse may be to use the franchise tag next year, but they'll exhaust their other options first. In the meantime, Cooks should be considered a WR3 with WR2 upside for fantasy purposes this season.

  • Posted: 4/3/2018 3:04pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round pick were acquired by the Los Angeles Rams Tuesday, April 3, in exchange for a first-round pick and sixth-round pick.

    Huddle Up: Cooks joins what now appears to be somewhat of a crowded receiving corps, even with Sammy Watkins gone. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp will be Cooks' main competition for targets, but Cooks does figure to be Jared Goff's primary deep threat in one of the NFL's most prolific offenses. Still, it's hard to envision Cooks surpassing the value he had in New England, which was as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

  • Posted: 4/3/2018 2:58pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round pick were traded to the Los Angeles Rams Tuesday, April 3, in exchange for a first-round pick and sixth-round pick.

    Huddle Up: Cooks' absence paves the way for Julian Edelman and Chris Hogan to be Tom Brady's go-to wide receivers. Edelman has low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 value in PPR leagues if he can stay on the field. Hogan possesses low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 appeal assuming he can stay healthy as well. Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson become late-round fliers, although the Patriots could obviously add to the position via the draft.

  • Posted: 2/11/2018 9:23am ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (head) is encouraged by how he has felt since suffering a head injury during Super Bowl LII, according to people close to him.

    Huddle Up: Cooks should be able to participate in offseason workouts if he does not suffer any setbacks. He posted solid numbers in his first season with the Patriots and should be a top-three receiver for the team next season. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues in 2018.

  • Posted: 2/10/2018 6:24pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks wants to remain with the team, and Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald believes Cooks could offered an extension to lower his $8.459 million cap hit in 2018.

    Huddle Up: Cooks was a bit boom or bust in 2017 as part of New England offense loaded with weapons, but he should still be considered a WR2 moving forward.

  • Posted: 1/21/2018 5:24pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars with six receptions for 100 yards on eight targets.

    Huddle Up: Cooks posted the big yardage and Danny Amendola had a pair of touchdowns, giving Tom Brady a pair of reliable targets once Rob Gronkowski left the game with a head injury.

  • Posted: 1/13/2018 9:46pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught three passes on nine targets for 32 yards in a 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooks' fantasy owners should be used to this. Playing in an offense that spreads the ball around, Cooks is going to remain prone to the occasional clunker.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 8:40pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished with four receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Cooks had a couple of stinkers the past two games, posting just three grabs for 55 yards, but for those fantasy owners rolling the dice on him in fantasy playoff games he came through.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 2:36pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (hand) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has been limited to 55 yards over the last two games but has been targeted at least seven times in five of the last six games. He can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues this week because of his big-play potential.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 3:26pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks (hand) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooks was targeted seven times in Week 14 but finished the game with only one catch for 38 yards. He has been quiet in each of the last two games but should have a favorable matchup this week. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy option for owners this week.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 10:20pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks finished with only one catch on seven targets for 38 yards in the team's Week 14 defeat Monday, Dec. 11, against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Yikes. Owners of Cooks should be thankful he was even able to log the one catch, which came late in the fourth quarter, but other than that, he just couldn't get anything working opposite Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard. The result was Cooks' first game as a Patriot with less than multiple catches. He should bounce back from this right away, so no need to panic.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 2:03pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks managed just two grabs for 17 yards on three targets in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: It was a disappointing outing for Cooks after his two strong performances in the past two weeks. The game also snaps a nine-game streak with at least three receptions. He'll look to bounce back in Week 14 against the Miami Dolphins on Monday night.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 5:04pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks posted six receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins on his seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has scored three times in the past five games, including once each over the past two weekends. He also has four or more catches in seven straight outings. He remains a solid WR2 in most PPR formats, and a decent WR3 or flex play in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 9:40pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks said his goal is to 'absolutely' spend the rest of his career in New England. 'It just matches my personality,' Cooks said. 'The way things are structured, the way they go about their business, it's just a great place.'

    Huddle Up: Cooks is coming off his best game of the year, and after an inconsistent start, he has found his rhythm in New England. He currently ranks fifth in receiving yards and third in yards per catch, and Cooks can be deployed as a WR2.

  • Posted: 11/13/2017 5:16am ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks had six catches for 74 yards and was targeted 11 times in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has a 39-637-3 line on the season and has only had one 100-yard game. This is what to expect from him with this much around him. He's a WR3 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 7:12pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes on eight targets for 26 yards in a 21-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Any player in New England's offense is bound to have an occasional down game, so don't worry about this one too much. Continue to deploy him as a WR2.

  • Posted: 10/26/2017 7:59pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has four plays of 40-plus yards and is averaging a league-leading 19.2 yards per reception. He is on pace for a career-high 1,227 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cooks underwhelmed a bit in his first couple of games with New England, but he has quickly become an explosive weapon for the offense and can be confidently deployed as a WR2.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 5:05am ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught four passes for 65 yards and scored a touchdown in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Cooks believes the longer the season goes, the more explosive he can be. This was his third touchdown of the season in a crowded Patriots receiving corps, and Cooks makes a good WR2 companion to Chris Hogan.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 7:55pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks said he believes he will be able to showcase his explosiveness more often as the season goes on. 'At the end of the day, I just want to stick to the process, perfect my craft and pay attention to the little details,' Cooks said. 'And I feel like it's going to come.'

    Huddle Up: Cooks has just two touchdowns this year, but he has still been a big part of the passing game, delivering at least 85 yards in four of the six games. He is locked in as a WR2 heading into a Week 7 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 1:41pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught six passes for 93 yards against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has been targeted at least six times in five games this season and has posted at least 85 yards in three of the last four games. He can be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 10:18pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 85 yards (17 yards per catch) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5. Cooks was targeted eight times.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has alternated solid outings with quiet ones, and his 85-yard showing Thursday night was a much better effort than his three-catch, 38-yard game against Carolina. While Cooks hasn't been the second coming of Randy Moss some speculated he'd be, he's someone that deserves a weekly spot as a WR2 based on upside alone.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 5:22pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks recorded 111 yards on deep passes in Week 3, which is the third most by a Patriots receiver in the past 12 years.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has been a terrific addition for the Patriots and has 256 yards and two touchdowns over the first three games of the season. He will remain a big part of the team's passing game and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:56pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns against the Houston Texans in Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Cooks was coming off a disappointing Week 2 performance but showed by the Patriots traded from him with his 131 yards. He should continue to be a focal point in the passing game against the Carolina Panthers and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 6:57pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks managed just two receptions for 37 yards on four targets in his return to the New Orleans in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: The performance was rather disappointing considering the fact Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three touchdowns and Cooks was underneath very little of that. He'll look for better results in Week 3 against the Texans at home.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 9:16am ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has shown great professionalism for a 23-year-old, according to quarterback Tom Brady. "I've been so impressed with his professionalism. We expect to perform at a championship level every day. For a 23-year-old to understand that and to buy into that, and then to work at that level, has been very impressive from my standpoint. Being around a lot of young receivers, that's one thing that's probably held a lot of people back. Brandin, I just love working with him and (I'm) excited for him this year," Brady said during his weekly interview with WEEI.

    Huddle Up: Cooks' work ethic has been well-chronicled this offseason, so it isn't much of a surprise he has acclimated himself to the 'Patriot Way' so quickly. Owners might be a bit apprehensive in using a second-round pick on him given New England's penchant for spreading the wealth, but Cooks is not a run-of-the-mill talent. He has top-10 and possibly top-five upside at his position in fantasy this season.

  • Posted: 8/25/2017 7:31pm ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks caught one pass for eight yards in a 30-28 preseason win over the Detroit Lions Friday, Aug. 25.

    Huddle Up: Cooks has enormous upside in New England's offense, but the ample firepower available to Tom Brady could lead to the occasional dud. That will likely change if Julian Edelman's knee injury turns out to be serious, and if Edelman is out of the equation, Cooks needs to be treated as a WR1.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 1:56pm ET

    New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski and WR Brandin Cooks are not expected to play in the Patriots' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 10, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: This shouldn't come as a shock to any. Playing stars simply isn't worth the risk early on in the preseason. This will have no impact on their respective fantasy values. As you were.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 9:14am ET

    New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has been impressive throughout the offseason, and he has put on 'a clinic' against the Jacksonville Jaguars during two days of joint practices at Gillette Stadium.

    Huddle Up: The narrative surrounding Cooks since he arrived from New Orleans via trade this spring was he was a one-trick pony who would get swallowed up into the Patriots' spread-the-wealth passing game and be highly inconsistent as a result. Cooks is anything but a one-trick pony and has 10-touchdown upside in an offense that has lacked his big-play ability. All in all, he should be considered a top-10 receiver and a value pick if he last until the third round in fantasy drafts.
