Brandin Cooks Catches Six Passes In Playoff Loss

Sunday, January 14, 11:30 PM

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks made six catches in a Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Cooks was targeted eight times, making six catches for 47 scoreless yards. Cooks had a very up-and-down season, as the Cowboys offense mostly ran through CeeDee Lamb and Jake Ferguson. Offseason moves will play a huge role on what Cooks' fantasy value will be in 2024, although he's likely to fall into another boom-or-bust situation no matter what.

Rashee Rice Wraps Up Rookie Season Quietly

Monday, February 12, 1:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.
