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.

Rams | Brandin Cooks fine tuning game (Fri Jun 21, 10:21 PM) - Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks said he has focused on improving his timing with QB Jared Goff this offseason. 'You can always have perfect timing out there when you're throwing on air,' Cooks said. 'But now we've got defenders out there, just continue to work on that and get better at that, so we can be the best we can possibly be.'

Our View: Cooks was fantastic in 2021 and defied the "first year with a new quarterback" drag on production for the second straight year. He should build on his strong campaign this year now that he has continuity for the first offseason since 2016.
