Brandin Cooks Player Overview

A fractured left thumb in Week 10 of 2014 landed him on the IR for the final 6 games of his rookie campaign. His following two seasons have been injury-free -- notwithstanding a mild concussion in 2015 that didn't affect his playing time. Cooks could have a huge year this year, playing for the league's best QB on the league's best offense. A top-5 fantasy finish isn't out of the question.
