4.) Brandin Cooks vs. Buffalo Bills

In the game of the week up in Orchard Park, the Dallas Cowboys will play up far away from home in the cold weather against the Buffalo Bills. They have been steamrolling opponents, which includes coming off an impressive 33-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Wideout Brandin Cooks was targeted 5 times, but brought in just 2 catches for 37 yards. Cooks has seen no more than 4 catches in his last four games and is getting targeted no more than 5 games in that stretch. 

Unless he manages to get into the end zone, he is a risky option week in and week out. The Buffalo secondary that he will go up against plays great situational football and it is easier to trust CeeDee Lamb to be the number one option. Cooks’ inconsistency may have cost fantasy owners games this year and this Sunday’s matchup against the Bills does not look to be promising. If you have Cooks, there should be hesitation to put him in your starting lineup this week.
