Brandin Cooks fantasy outlook: Start him.

As well as the Rams defense has played, they’ve tended to give up some big games to WR1s. And with the huge array of weapons on this Saints offense, they can’t afford to sell out on Cooks.

I expect a big game. Remember, all Cooks needs is one play. He’s as big of a home run threat as you’ll find in this league. And every week he’s looking more dangerous in the intermediate game.

It can be hard to predict receiver production on a team that spreads the ball as much as the Saints do. But I’m making a prediction now: Cooks stretches the field and comes away with a big afternoon.
