Brandin Cooks traded to the Houston Texans

He’s not DeAndre Hopkins, but he’s at least a start.

The Los Angeles Rams are trading wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Houston Texans for a second round pick.

Fantasy Impact

He’s not DeAndre Hopkins, but at least Deshaun Watson has a legit number one receiver to throw the ball to. I was on the record earlier in the offseason saying that I expected a bounce back year for Cooks and now that he’s with the Texans, I still think he has the potential to have a strong fantasy season. He’ll be the number one guy presumably and has recorded 1,000+ receiving yards in four out of his last five years. I’m certainly intrigued by his 2020 fantasy value.
