2019 Outlook: Brandin Cooks

Brandin Cooks has consistently finished as a top-15 Fantasy receiver since 2015, but it's come on inconsistent results. That's why some people might have a little hesitation drafting him with a top-50 pick. Despite four straight years with roughly 120 targets, over 1,050 yards and anywhere from five to nine touchdowns, his production fluctuated like a struggling Hollywood actor's career. He's had six or seven games 10-plus non-PPR Fantasy points each year (a 40.6 percent rate overall) and slightly more games with six or fewer points in non-PPR. Match that with the Rams' spread-the-ball approach and Cooper Kupp's return and Cooks should be viewed as a boom-or-bust No. 2 receiver. That's not a bad thing, just make sure there aren't players with a better outlook before you pick Cooks.
