Brandin Cooks, WR, Dallas Cowboys

Cooks was a big part of the Cowboys' bonanza against the New York Giants in Week 10, with nine catches for 173 yards and a touchdown. A lot of that came early, with seven of his 10 targets on Dak Prescott's 24 first half pass attempts, but Cooks has now scored in three of the last four games in line with Dallas' passing game coming to life.

The Cowboys' next four opponents (Carolina Panthers, Washington Commanders, Seattle Seahawks. Philadelphia Eagles) are not tough on opposing wide receivers. With CeeDee Lamb drawing the opponent's top corner and plenty of attention otherwise, Cooks is lined up for favorable situations.

Week 10 will probably easily go down as Cooks' biggest yardage game this season. But that won't prevent him from being a usable fantasy option, to and possibly through the playoffs.
