Summary

Brandin Cooks is new to the Rams depth chart for 2018, the third team in as many seasons for the former first round selection. With the departure of Sammy Watkins, the vertical role in the offense is open for Cooks, who has averaged 14.1 yards-per-catch over his career and has three straight 1,000-yard seasons. Cooks has a thick frame for his height and the ability to make contested plays on intermediate routes. One area of concern is the overall volume of the Rams passing game (24th in pass attempts) and the deep reservoir of targets between wide receivers and Todd Gurley. Cooks has seen at least 110 targets in each of the past three seasons while no Rams target saw more than 94 in 2017 with their well-balanced attack. (June 3)

Rams | Brandin Cooks a versatile weapon (Thu Aug 9, 12:41 PM) - Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks will be used in a variety of positions and move around offensive formations, according to head coach Sean McVay. McVay added that Cooks is a 'rare type player' who possesses a complete skillset.

Our View: Well, the Rams are definitely looking to get their money's worth from Cooks after he signed that ridiculously big contract not long ago. The more ways they can try to use him, the better the chance he breaks out from the pack around him. The Rams didn't throw a ton last year they were 24th in passing attempts in 2017 but we hope they open things up for Jared Goff this season. That would bode well for Cooks currently the 22nd receiver coming off the board in drafts and his production.
