Double coverage: Matthew Berry on Brandin Cooks - ESPN
Berry: Here are the positives on Cooks fantasy value: He has crazy speed and lands on a team that needs it. It's also a team that threw the ball 651 times last year and just saw 143 targets walk out the door in the form of Darren Sproles and Lance Moore. Some of those will go to Kenny Stills in an increased role, but not all of them. So he should have a solid target number from a future Hall of Fame quarterback on a team that scores in bunches. All positives.
