Patriots | Brandin Cooks quiet against old team

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:57:20 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks draws praise

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 09:16:16 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | One catch for Brandin Cooks

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 19:31:20 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Key Patriots to sit Thursday

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 13:56:20 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks putting on a clinic

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 09:14:42 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Tom Brady, Brandin Cooks building chemistry

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 14:51:11 -0700

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady said he has been working with WR Brandin Cooks during training camp so they can work on building a better chemistry.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots added Cooks this offseason, and he should be a big part of the passing game this season. He has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and has 17 touchdowns during that span. Cooks should be considered a solid No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues. Brady will have plenty of weapons to work with and will be No. 1 quarterback in all leagues.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks praised by head coach

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:49:40 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has already impressed head coach Bill Belichick. "Brandin's worked hard. Definitely, he has some skill. A transition for him [from the Saints]; he's working hard to make it," Belichick said. Belichick said Cooks is able to do multiple things for the Patriots and they'll have to see how those tools translate at training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks, Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, among others, give Tom Brady a versatile and formidable group of pass-catchers. Cooks may not be as involved with the Patriots, but he'll still play an integral role. As such, he should part of the WR2 conversation for fantasy purposes.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks lining up everywhere

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 08:23:54 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks is lining up everywhere on the field for the team, and he caught a team-high eight passes during a three-day minicamp this week. Cooks finishes every single route, regardless of how quickly the ball is delivered, and he flashes his hands at the end of the route to simulate the timing of the throw, according to S Devin McCourty.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks is a weapon, but it's hard to envision him harnessing his WR1 potential with so many other weapons in this offense. Cooks is at-best a WR2 in fantasy.

Patriots | Brandin Cooks impressive at minicamp

Wed, 07 Jun 2017 12:45:41 -0700

New England Patriots WR Brandin Cooks has been one of the breakout performers during minicamp this week and his speed has set him apart from his teammates, in the opinion of the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe.

Fantasy Tip: Cooks probably will be used as a deep threat for the Patriots but could also see short passes that would allow him to use his speed. He has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and will have a solid role in the Patriots' passing game. Cooks can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
