    Brandin Cooks Has Tough Matchup Against Jaguars

    Wednesday, January 17, 6:27 PM

    New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks could have a tough time producing this Sunday against an elite Jaguars defense. The Jaguars were burned for 132 yards by the Steelers' Antonio Brown last week, but they allowed the fewest fantasy points to receivers during the regular season. Cooks will surely see plenty of Pro Bowl cornerback Jalen Ramsey and may be used, at times, as nothing more than a decoy. Cooks caught only three passes last week for 32 yards and could struggle to produce a game-breaking play. In fact, outside of Brown, the Jaguars have not allowed more than 90 receiving yards to a single wide receiver all season. Cooks could disappoint in fantasy this Sunday and will carry more risk than usual.
