Brandin Cooks Developing Rapport with Dak Prescott
1 month ago

Brandin Cooks has an obvious connection with Dak Prescott in Cowboys’ Mini-Camp

A report from The Athletic indicated that Brandin Cooks and Dak Prescott have developed a lot of chemistry over the last year. While Cooks had a disappointing first season with the Cowboys, he scored 8 touchdowns in his final 12 games. Prescott started the year slow as well, and each of them plan on building on their strong finish to the 2023 season.


The Cowboys should be one of the highest volume passing offenses in the NFL given their limitations at the running back position. This is a great situation for Cooks who has no competition as Dallas’ clear WR2 going into the 2024 season. While Cooks is passed his prime going into year eleven, he could still provide WR3 value most weeks. This makes Cooks a value in current fantasy drafts.

Brandin Cooks Will Not Play in Week 2
10 months ago

Brandin Cooks will not be able to play in week two against the New York Jets due to an MCL Sprain.

The Cowboys will be without their No. 2 wide receiver this weekend when they face off against the New York Jets. Brandin Cooks suffered an MCL Sprain in their win last week against the New York Giants and won’t be able to suit up this weekend. That leaves Michael Gallup, Jalen Tolbert, and Kavontae Turpin to pick up the slack and more opportunities at the wide receiver position.

Unfortunately, an MCL sprain is likely a multi-week injury and the Cowboys could be without Cooks for the foreseeable future. With six 1000-yard receiving seasons in his career, Cooks’ production will be hard to replace on the roster. With the defense playing excellent as well, there likely won’t be a need for the Cowboys to air it out most weeks. As a result, none of these wide receivers besides CeeDee Lamb will be startable in fantasy formats. In deeper leagues, Gallup checks in as a WR4 with upside given his big play ability.

Cowboys WR Brandin Cooks Suffers Sprained MCL

Brandin Cooks status ahead of week two is uncertain as he deals with a sprained MCL

Brandin Cooks suffered a sprained MCL in the Cowboys’ week one win against the New York Giants. While his status remains uncertain, this is typically a three to four week injury. Cooks is likely going to miss time and he very well could be placed on injured reserve.

Moving forward, the next man up for the Dallas Cowboys will be five-year NFL veteran Michael Gallup. He ran the same amount of routes as Cooks in week two, but now he will take on a much larger role. Fantasy managers may forget that Gallup accumulated 1,950 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns between the 2019 and 2020 seasons. However, a knee injury he suffered in 2021 hampered his production into 2022. Now fully healthy, Gallup has an opportunity to prove himself and will be a borderline WR3 until Cooks returns.

This likely will mean a small bump in targets for Jake Ferguson as well. While he only had two catches for eleven yards in week one, Ferguson was targeted by Dak Prescott seven times. He isn’t on the fantasy radar yet, but could develop as a streaming option later in the season. For Prescott, this puts a small damper on his outlook but expect better fantasy days as the Cowboys didn’t throw much in a lopsided affair. Nonetheless, he may be more of a high-end QB2 in a tough matchup against the New York Jets in week two.
