Third Time's the Charm?
Brandin Cooks is 24 years old, has three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons on his resume, has played with two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, and somehow finds himself playing for his third team in as many years. It's not unusual for players to switch teams, but it's almost unheard of for a player of Cooks' caliber to switch teams in successive years. It's even stranger to think he was traded for a first-round draft pick (and then some) in back-to-back offseasons. Is there anyone else in history that can say the same?
Regardless of how he got here, Cooks is now a member of the Los Angeles Rams and moves from the AFC's best team (New England) to one of the NFC's Super Bowl favorites (Los Angeles). He's been a top-12 fantasy receiver for three straight seasons, and will immediately become the Rams top pass-catcher. The question fantasy managers must ask is how Cooks' new home affects his outlook?
- Jared Goff is a good, young quarterback but he's no Drew Brees or Tom Brady
- The Rams have a dynamic offense but pass the ball much less than New Orleans and New England
- Cooks was paid a princely sum before he ever played a snap for the Rams, but he still has two viable incumbent receivers competing for targets
