Brandin Cooks Set To Return In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 7:30 PM

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.

DeVonta Smith Looks To Bounce Back Against Commanders

Friday, September 29, 8:31 PM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith will take on the division-rival Washington Commanders in Week 4 on Sunday. While the 24-year-old missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, he was a full participant on Friday and is not listed on the team's final injury report. Last week against Tampa Bay, Smith came back to earth after scoring in each of the season's first two games. The former Heisman winner took a backseat to A.J. Brown, who got the squeaky wheel treatment after being visibly frustrated about his involvement during Week 2. This matchup against the Commanders is excellent for fantasy wide receivers, setting Smith up for a bounce-back performance. Washington allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to the position and was eaten alive by Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis last week. Consider Smith a high-end WR2 in Week 4.
