Texans Not Worried About Brandin Cooks' Health

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he feels "really good" about wide receiver Brandin Cooks' (head) health after a physical with a doctor in Los Angeles. Cooks head recurring concussion issues that caused him to miss two games with the Rams in 2019. "Yes, he's had concussions, but he's only missed two games since 2015. All that was taken into account when we worked with [Rams coach] Sean McVay on the trade," O'Brien said. The 26-year-old has had 1,000-yard receiving seasons with the Saints, Patriots and Rams, but he disappointed in 2019 in LA. He will start in three-wide sets with Will Fuller V and Randall Cobb in his new home, and Cooks could bounce back with better health in Houston's offense. He should be targeted as a boom/bust WR3 for fantasy owners.

Texans Acquire Brandin Cooks From Rams

The Houston Texans acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks and a 2022 fourth-round pick from the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday in exchange for the 57th overall pick in this month's draft. The Texans traded elite wideout DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals in exchange for running back David Johnson earlier this offseason, so adding another receiver to help pick up the slack from Hopkins' departure was necessary. Houston's receivers now include Cooks, Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills at the receiver position. Cooks should be the No. 2 behind Fuller, while this acquisition mostly hurts Stills and Cobb in the pecking order. The 26-year-old missed two games with a head injury last year and caught only 42 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns, breaking a streak of four straight 1,000-yard seasons. Cooks has boom/bust potential in fantasy while pairing up with quarterback Deshaun Watson, but there sure are a lot of mouths to feed now in Houston's passing game.

Rams Put Brandin Cooks On Trade Block

The Los Angeles Rams have made wide receiver Brandin Cooks available in a trade as they try to trim salary and restock their draft picks, according to a source. The Rams are also considering a trade for star running back Todd Gurley. Cooks is under contract through the 2023 season and is scheduled to make $8 million in 2020 with a salary cap hit of $16.8 million. The speedster caught 42 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games in 2019 after four straight seasons with at least 65 grabs, 1,082 receiving yards and five touchdowns. Cooks also missed some time with a concussion and has a history of head injuries. A move out of LA, where he's third behind Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, might be best for his fantasy value. Stay tuned.
