Brandin Cooks's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Brandin Cooks to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 71 projected fantasy points puts him at #35 behind JuJu Smith-Schuster and ahead of Travis Fulgham. He has averaged 5.94 fantasy points in his past 34 games, which is less than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 7.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#43) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #32 ranked wide receiver. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 87%, he is the #39 most highly owned wide receiver. Brandin Cooks is expected to improve on this season-to-date's #49 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

START EM ALERT: BRANDIN COOKS PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF MARVIN JONES IN WEEK 9

Brandin Cooks is projected for 8.8 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #23 ranked wide receiver and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Marvin Jones but behind Robby Anderson. Week 10 will not be as good based on projected rank (#37). He is projected for 7.9 fantasy points.

BRANDIN COOKS IS A GREAT DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL ($6.1K) AND DRAFTKINGS ($5.5K)

He is projected for 11.2 FanDuel points and 14.6 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$501 more than $6.1K on FanDuel and +$391 more than $5.5K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
