Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks made six catches in a Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Cooks was targeted eight times, making six catches for 47 scoreless yards. Cooks had a very up-and-down season, as the Cowboys offense mostly ran through CeeDee Lamb and Jake Ferguson. Offseason moves will play a huge role on what Cooks' fantasy value will be in 2024, although he's likely to fall into another boom-or-bust situation no matter what.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks is a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in a Wild Card Weekend matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Cooks has carved out some fantasy value this season, but he rarely sees high volume and usually needs a touchdown to put up a relevant fantasy score. In the regular season, Cooks scored a touchdown in eight games and was at least a fantasy WR2 in seven of them. In games where he did not score, his best performance was an overall WR49 game in Week 11. This week's matchup should be a high-scoring game, so there's a decent chance Cooks scores, but he comes with a very low floor so there's quite a bit of risk involved in having him in any lineups.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks scored a touchdown in a Week 18 win over the Washington Commanders. Cooks was targeted eight times, making his six catches for 39 yards and the score. His touchdown came on a five-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott in the third quarter and gave the Cowboys a 35-10 lead. Cooks had an up-and-down season which made him frustrating in standard leagues but a rather valuable asset in best ball formats. He and the Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the playoffs next weekend.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks is a touchdown-dependent option in a Week 18 game against the Washington Commanders. Cooks has had some touchdown luck lately, scoring in three of his past five games, but not piling up much yardage outside of those touchdown catches. He's been a boom-or-bust play most of the season with the booms not getting too high, making him a WR3 for this regular season finale, albeit with some more upside than most in that rank.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks scored a touchdown in a Week 17 win over the Detroit Lions. Cooks was targeted eight times, making five catches for 60 yards and the score. His touchdown came in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard pass to give the Cowboys the lead. Cooks still has upside but remains an inconsistent option behind all-world receiver CeeDee Lamb, who had another huge game in this one.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks is a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions. Cooks has scored a touchdown in three of his past five games, but has also caught just six passes in his past three games combined. The Cowboys offense should play well against the Lions secondary, but Cooks has a very low floor with just a middling ceiling, making him risky in most formats, especially in fantasy championship week.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks scored a touchdown in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Cooks was targeted just twice, making two catches for 14 yards. His score came on an eight-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott near the end of the fourth quarter, to give the Cowboys a lead that they would only hold for a few minutes before the Dolphins won the game on a last-second field goal. Cooks has been inconsistent this season, mixing solid weeks with poor performances. This one was somewhere in between, thanks to him finding the end zone on one of his two catches.
Dec 24, 2023 8:15 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks is an unexciting option in Week 16 fantasy lineups in a game against the Miami Dolphins. Cooks got in a limited practice on Wednesday, but it was reported as a rest day and not injury related. He's been having an up-and-down season, but he's been a fantasy WR3 or better in half of his games since Week 8. The Dolphins defense has been excellent overall and has been able to limit receivers like Cooks fairly easily. There's a very low floor without much of an enticing ceiling for Cooks this week, making him better left on the bench in most leagues.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks made just two catches in a Week 15 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He was targeted six times but was only able to come down with the two grabs, one for eight yards and the other for two. It was another down game for the Cowboys WR2, who has been the boom-or-bust fantasy option most expected. He'll have a slightly better chance at a boom game next week against the Dolphins on Christmas Eve.

Dallas Cowboys wide receivers Brandin Cooks (illness) and Jalen Tolbert (illness) are active for Week 15 versus the Buffalo Bills. Both players had been listed as questionable but were trending in the right direction ahead of kickoff. Cooks is a fringe WR3/FLEX option in what should be a competitive game versus Buffalo. Meanwhile, Tolbert remains off the fantasy radar.
Dec 17, 2023 3:06 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (illness) is expected to play versus the Buffalo Bills in Week 15 despite being listed as questionable, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The veteran has looked promising in his age-30 season, catching 30 passes for 461 yards and five touchdowns over the course of his last eight games. His strong rapport with Dak Prescott as the No. 2 wide receiver in Dallas makes him a fine FLEX option in fantasy football this week.
Dec 17, 2023 8:16 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receivers Brandin Cooks (illness) and Jalen Tolbert (illness) are both listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills but are expected to be available on Sunday. Cooks missed practice on Thursday and Friday, while Tolbert was able to get in a limited session on Friday after sitting out Thursday. The Cowboys expect both wideouts to be feeling better by Sunday's showdown against the Bills in Buffalo. Tolbert is off the fantasy radar completely but Cooks has been much more involved in Dallas' passing attack after a slow start to his first year in Dallas. Buffalo hasn't been a great matchup for opposing wideouts from a fantasy perspective this year, but the Bills defense is pretty banged up and could be without standout safety Micah Hyde (neck) for the rest of the year. Cooks will be a WR3/flex option for fantasy managers in Week 15.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn't sound concerned about the availability of wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Jalen Tolbert and cornerback Stephon Gilmore for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills after all three players missed practice on Thursday due to illness. A bug must be going around Dallas' locker room right now, but all three players should be feeling much better by the time they kick off Sunday in Buffalo. Following a slow start earlier this year in his first season in Dallas, the 30-year-old Cooks has become much more involved in the offense. He has scored in two of the last three games (five TDs total in 2023) and has 10 catches for 154 yards on 14 targets in the last three weeks. Cooks will be a WR3/flex in a good matchup this weekend against a banged-up Bills defense.
Dec 15, 2023 12:36 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks will look to bounce back in a Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills. Cooks was on a bit of a roll heading into last week's game, but put up a dud against the Eagles, catching just two passes and scoring five fantasy points. He's had a wide range of outcomes this season which has leveled him off into the WR3 ranks, but makes him difficult to trust from week to week. He's a risky option but could pay off in fantasy lineups this week.
Dec 14, 2023 11:56 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks made just two catches in a Week 14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Cooks was targeted five times, but only came down with the two grabs, gaining a total of 37 yards. Most of the yards Cooks gained came on one play, as he made a 30-yard grab to go with his other catch for just seven yards. It was definitely a down game for Cooks, who had seen his fantasy arrow pointing up after the past few weeks. Michael Gallup seemed to jump ahead of Cooks in this one, but that could easily switch back in Week 15 against the Buffalo Bills.
Dec 11, 2023 1:15 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks has a good matchup in a Week 14 game against the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Cooks has finished as at least a fantasy WR3 in five of his last seven games, and should be able to do that again in a good matchup against the Eagles. In what should be a high scoring Sunday Night Football contest, Cooks and the rest of the Cowboys offense should thrive, making Cooks a definite starting option in most fantasy formats.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks scored a touchdown in a Week 13 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. Cooks was targeted four times and made all four catches, gaining 45 yards and scoring a touchdown. His touchdown came on a seven-yard pass from Dak Prescott in the second quarter and was his second game in a row finding the end zone. Cooks was incredibly inconsistent earlier in the season, but he's been a solid fantasy option in three of the past four games, and should continue going forward as a WR2/3 depending on the matchup.
Dec 1, 2023 12:11 AM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks will look for consistency and to even things out in a Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Cooks has been alternating good and bad games, finishing as the fantasy WR21, 97, 3, 49, and 18 over the past five weeks. Based on that pattern, he's due for a bad week, but based on his and the Cowboys offense's recent play, there's a lot of upside in Cooks. His floor is lower than most others on the WR2/3 radar, but the ceiling is nice and the Cowboys shouldn't have a hard time moving the ball on Thursday Night.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks led the Cowboys in receiving in a Thanksgiving Week 12 win over the Washington Commanders. Cooks was targeted five times, making four catches for 72 yards. His touchdown came on a 31-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott in the second quarter. It was another excellent game for Cooks, who out-gained CeeDee Lamb and totaled the same number of catches. Lamb is still the clear first choice in this passing game, but Cooks has carved out a solid role as second in line, and if he can stay consistent he could be a real asset in most fantasy leagues as an upside WR3.
Nov 23, 2023 10:52 PM EST
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks will look to maintain some consistency in a Week 12 game against the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving. Cooks is averaging close to 15 fantasy points per week over his last five games, but that includes a 28-point performance and a 1-point performance along the way. He'll look to become a more consistent contributor as the clear second option in a powerful passing game against a Washington defense that struggles to defend through the air. His wide range of fantasy performances gives him quite a bit of variance in terms of ceiling and floor, but he ends up somewhere in the WR4 range but with more upside than most others in that ranking.
