Brandin Cooks Set To Return In Week 3

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday and was removed from the final Week 3 injury report, meaning he will make his return against the Arizona Cardinals. Cooks suffered an MCL sprain in the season opener and was held out of the Week 2 win over the New York Jets. The Cowboys didn't need to throw the ball in the 40-0 blowout over the New York Giants in Week 1, so Cooks had just two receptions for 22 yards in his Cowboys debut. The same could be true this Sunday against the 0-2 Cardinals, so Cooks isn't exactly an intriguing flex play for fantasy managers this weekend while coming off a knee injury.

Brandin Cooks Practices Again Thursday

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) is good to go for his second straight day of practice on Thursday after missing the Week 2 win over the New York Jets with an MCL injury. Cooks was officially listed as limited on Wednesday and will likely be given the same designation on Thursday. In the 40-0 blowout win over the New York Giants in Week 1, Cooks wasn't really needed and finished with just two catches on four targets for 22 yards. With him absence in Week 2, Michael Gallup played the same number of offensive snaps as CeeDee Lamb but caught just one pass for three yards. For what it's worth, Cooks expects to return this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals in another game that probably won't require the Cowboys to air it out much.

Brandin Cooks Returns To Limited Practice

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) was able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday after sitting out of the Week 2 win over the New York Jets with an MCL sprain he suffered in the season opener. There's no guarantee that Cooks will be active this weekend in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals, but the fact that he's back at practice is a good sign early in the week. With Cooks inactive on Sunday, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup both played 72% of the offensive snaps, with Jalen Tolbert checking in third at 68%. Cooks is feeling great and expects to play against Arizona, but we'll have a better idea of his availability later this week. In his Cowboys debut in Week 1, he caught just two of four passes for 22 yards in a 40-0 blowout win over the New York Giants.

Brandin Cooks Officially Inactive Sunday

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) is officially inactive for Week 2 versus the New York Jets. The veteran played 59 percent of offensive snaps in his Cowboys debut last week, hauling in two of four targets for 22 yards. Michael Gallup, Jake Ferguson, and Jalen Tolbert should see more opportunities in Cooks' absence, but none of them are particularly intriguing fantasy options on Sunday.

Brandin Cooks Unlikely To Play Versus Jets

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) isn't expected to suit up for Sunday's clash with the New York Jets. The veteran is battling a sprained MCL, meaning he might miss more time moving ahead. Of course, CeeDee Lamb is Dak Prescott's top target. However, flex consideration can be given to KaVontae Turpin, Michael Gallup, and Jalen Tolbert for managers in deep fantasy formats.

Brandin Cooks To Be Game-Time Decision

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) will be a game-time decision on Sunday in a Week 2 contest against the visiting New York Jets. Jones added that Cooks doesn't need practice repetitions to be ready to play this weekend after being diagnosed with a sprained MCL this week. With Sunday's Cowboys game coming in the late-afternoon window, the 29-year-old Cooks becomes a pretty risky fantasy play in Week 2. He wasn't really needed in the season-opening blowout win over the Giants, catching two passes for 22 yards on four targets. If Cooks is out or limited against one of the toughest defenses in the league, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup will have bigger roles and Jalen Tolbert figures to start in the slot for Dallas.

Brandin Cooks Dealing With Sprained MCL

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) is dealing with a sprained MCL in his knee, according to a source. Cooks didn't practice for the second straight day on Thursday and instead is working with the rehab group, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said the Cooks was improving and has a chance to play in Week 2 against the New York Jets, but he'll have to get on the practice field on Friday in order to have a shot. The 29-year-old had just two catches for 22 yards on four targets in his Cowboys debut in the Week 1 drubbing of the New York Giants, but Dallas really wasn't forced to go to the air in a game that was never close. If Cooks is out or limited this Sunday, Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert, as well as tight end Jake Ferguson, would have expanded roles behind top wideout CeeDee Lamb. Cooks has become an extremely shaky lineup play this week against one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Brandin Cooks Has A Chance To Play In Week 2

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks (knee) was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, but head coach Mike McCarthy said the veteran wideout is doing "OK" and thinks he'll do a little more on Thursday. There is a chance that Cooks will be able to play in Week 2 on Sunday against the New York Jets. It's an injury to watch for the 29-year-old pass-catcher, but it doesn't appear to be serious enough to keep him from playing this weekend. However, the injury combined with an extremely tough matchup against a ball-hawking Jets defense is enough to make fantasy managers wary of using Cooks in a flex spot in Week 2. Dallas didn't have to do much throwing in their 40-0 dismantling of the New York Giants in the season opener, so Cooks only had two catches for 22 yards on four targets in his Cowboys debut.

Brandin Cooks Makes Two Catches In His Cowboys Debut

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks made two catches in a Week 1 rout over the New York Giants. Cooks was targeted four times, coming down with half of his targets for a total of 22 yards. He was narrowly missed by quarterback Dak Prescott on both of the incompletions. In what should be a much close game against the New York Jets in Week 2, Cooks will likely see more chances to stretch the field.

Brandin Cooks Should Get A Solid Start To The Season In Week 1

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks should be able to get his Cowboys career off to a solid start in a Week 1 matchup against the New York Giants. Cooks was acquired in a trade with the Houston Texans this offseason, and looks like he'll immediately slide in as the second most popular target in the passing game behind CeeDee Lamb. In Week 1, Lamb will mostly be covered by Adoree' Jackson, leaving Cooks to play catch with Dak Prescott against a below average Giants secondary. Assuming he remains healthy, Cooks should have his most productive fantasy season in a while. Until he proves it though, he's a mid-range WR3 at best.

Brandin Cooks Likely To See Heavy Workload

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks has looked like one of the most productive players on the team during training camp. The 29-year-old is set to begin his first year in Dallas this season. The Athletic's Joe Machota believes that Cooks will finish second in targets on the team this upcoming season. The only player expected to do better than Cooks is fellow wideout CeeDee Lamb. The belief is that Cooks is outperforming Michael Gallup as the No. 2 target. Cooks should see a significant increase in value with a much better offense and quarterback in 2023.
