Rams' Brandin Cooks: Sidelined Tuesday by groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks did not participate in Tuesday's OTA due to a minor groin issue, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Given the condition of the injury, it's quite possible the Rams held their offseason acquisition out of Tuesday's session to ensure it doesn't result in a long-term concern. Assuming it remains a minor issue, Cooks should slot into Sammy Watkins' vacated spot as the team deep threat this season. He will work opposite Robert Woods with Cooper Kupp working in the slot, providing quarterback Jared Goff with a trio of capable wideouts to target. Cooks has topped 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and should be in a good spot to challenge that number again in 2018.

Rams' Brandin Cooks: Likely getting extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams plan on signing Cooks to a contract extension before Week 1, Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports.

Los Angeles agreed Tuesday to acquire the wideout and a 2018 fourth-round pick from the Patriots in exchange for first- and sixth-round picks in 2018. It would be an awful lot for the Rams to give up for a one-year rental with an $8.46 million salary, but the deal starts to make sense if Cooks is viewed as part of the club's long-term plan. While the speedy receiver may have been a slight disappointment in New England last season, he's only 24 years old and is coming off three straight 16-game campaigns with at least 1,082 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Cooks profiles as the likely No. 1 receiver in Los Angeles, though the same was said of Sammy Watkins, who ultimately served as a low-volume decoy in his lone season with the Rams. Cooks should see an uptick from Watkins' 2017 total of 70 targets, but his accustomed volume -- 120-target average the past three years -- is far from a sure thing. The Rams also need to feed Todd Gurley, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, their top three pass catchers from last season. Cooks may end up disappointed with how much time he spends clearing out space for his teammates.

Rams' Brandin Cooks: Traded to Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots are slated to trade Cooks to the Rams along with a fourth-round draft pick for first- and sixth-round draft choices, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With Cooks sent packing after just one season with New England, Julian Edelman (knee) and Chris Hogan now top the Patriots' wideout depth chart, while Cooks now slots in as the Rams' top option at the position. Cooks, who finished the 2017 regular season with 65 catches (on 114 targets) for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games, will now be catching passes from Jared Goff instead of Tom Brady. Though Brady is the more productive of the two signal-callers, Cooks' new team context (in terms of competition for targets) should ensure a rate of volume conducive to continued fantasy relevance in 2018.

Patriots' Brandin Cooks: Catches 65 passes during regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks (head) finished the regular season with 65 catches (on 114 targets) for 1,082 yards and seven TDs in 16 games.

Cooks, who also ran nine times for 40 yards this past season, was knocked out of Sunday's Super Bowl loss to the Eagles after just 18 snaps. While the Patriots were able to rack up 33 points in the contest, they had to adjust their game plan minus their top deep threat for almost three full quarters. The 24-year-old speedster remains under contract with the Patriots in 2018 and will once again serve as one of QB Tom Brady's top pass-catching weapons next season.

Patriots' Brandin Cooks: Out for remainder of Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooks has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's Super Bowl with a head injury.

Cooks was not cleared to return after undergoing evaluation following a hard hit from Philadelphia safety Malcolm Jenkins. The ex-New Orleans Saint will finish the game with one catch for 23 yards and one carry for one yard. Expect Philip Dorsett to see increased snaps with Cooks out.
