News: 10 hours agoCooks secured all four targets for 45 yards and a touchdown and added a two-point conversion catch in the Cowboys' 41-35 win over the Seahawks on Thursday night.
Spin: Cooks made good use of his relatively light night, posting Dallas' second-longest reception (19 yards), recording a seven-yard scoring grab and making a key two-point conversion catch after the Cowboys' final touchdown to extend the lead to three points. The veteran wideout has now crossed the goal line in three of the past four games, a favorable pattern he'll look to extend in a critical Week 14 home matchup against the Eagles on Sunday night, Dec. 10.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cooks was traded to the Cowboys after spending his first nine seasons with the Saints, Patriots, Rams and Texans. The 2014 first-round pick has finished 23rd or better in fantasy PPG in seven of his nine seasons, though the most recent was a 37th-place showing in 2022. Cooks had to deal with weak QB play in Houston, but he has also dealt with injuries (his last full season was in 2018) and has struggled to find the end zone (he last cleared six TDs in a season in 2017). The 29-year-old could settle in as high as second in target priority behind only CeeDee Lamb in a good Dallas offense, which would be enough to place him on the weekly flex radar.
