Summary

On his third high-level offense in as many seasons, Brandin Cooks logged a similar stat line in 2018 with Sean McVay and Jared Goff as with the Patriots and Saints in previous seasons. Cooks was the speed to Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods' short and intermediate acumen as Cooks hit a career high 1,204 yards last season. Cooks had a single drop, which was the lowest total for any receiver with more than 60 receptions and he was one of the best deep targets in the NFL with nearly 400 yards coming on passes at least 20 yards in length. Cooks was the primary outside receiver for the Rams, even when Cooper Kupp missed a chunk of the season, as Robert Woods was the primary slot option in Kupp's absence with Cooks sticking to the outside. Cooks has yet to see elite volume in his career, but durability (four straight seasons without missing a game) and a high floor (four straight 1,000-yard seasons) are cornerstone traits for the mid-career receiver.
