Cooks struggled to get open all night against Prince Amukamara. He saw the same amount of targets as Josh Reynolds and Gerald Everett.

Brandin Cooks corralled four-of-six targets for 62 yards Sunday in the Rams’ Week 13 win over Detroit.

It was a relatively quiet week for Cooks, but he still reached an impressive milestone, going over 1,000 yards for the fourth time in his career. In doing so, Cooks became the first player in league history to top 1,000 yards receiving three straight years for three different teams. Cooks was going against Matt Patricia on Sunday (both former Patriots), which may explain why the Lions were able to contain him. Cooks and the Rams will be featured against the Bears on Sunday Night Football in Week 14.
Dec 2 - 4:30 PM

Brandin Cooks caught 8-of-12 targets for 107 yards in the Rams' 54-51, Week 11 win over the Chiefs on Monday night.

Cooks' 12 targets led the team in the first game without Cooper Kupp (knee), while Robert Woods had 11 looks and scored a touchdown. The only thing missing from Cooks' line was a trip to the end zone, but the Rams were getting the ball in his hands deep down the field and also close to the line of scrimmage, allowing him to showcase his speed. He had one pass knocked out of his hands on what would have been a 45-yard completion, and Jared Goff also short-hopped him on two deep middle crosses, so Cooks could have had a much bigger night. Still, he's topped 100 yards in three-straight games and gets the bye before a Week 13 date at the Lions.
Nov 20 - 12:32 AM

Brandin Cooks caught 10-of-12 targets for 100 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks, adding a nine-yard rushing touchdown.

Cooks' rushing score came on a jet sweep. The Rams spent the better part of four quarters setting it up. Both the targets and catches were new season highs. Cooks could begin seeing 10 looks with greater regularity if Cooper Kupp (knee) is lost for the season. He will be a WR1 for next Monday's guaranteed shootout with the Rams in Mexico City.
Nov 11 - 7:49 PM

Brandin Cooks caught 6-of-8 targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Saints.

Cooks’ "revenge" game could not have started much better. After coming up with a 48-yard catch to help spark the second drive, Cooks finished it off with a grab in the back of the end zone for a four-yard score, his third of the season. He opened up the second half with a 15-yard catch on the opening scoring drive, made a great diving catch on a tipped pass the next series, and had another 15-yard gain to top 100 yards on a game-tying touchdown drive in the fourth. The Rams offense sputtered from there, but it was still a good outing for Cooks. He will be a borderline WR1 next week against the Seahawks.
Nov 4 - 7:42 PM

Brandin Cooks caught 3-of-8 targets for 74 yards in the Rams' Week 8 win over the Packers.

Both the targets and yards were Cooks' most in four games, but he found himself dealing with some sticky coverage from Packers rookie CB Jaire Alexander. Cooks has not cleared 100 yards since September, but there has been nothing concerning about his usage. He's just dealing with the typical statistical ups and downs of a fantasy season. Especially with six teams on bye, Cooks will remain in the WR1 mix for next week's showdown with the Saints.
Oct 28 - 8:12 PM

Brandin Cooks hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 7 win over the 49ers.

The Rams' passing game did not have to do much in this one, but Cooks still had a good day. His best play was a 19-yard touchdown in the second quarter in which he ran a great route to get open. The offense should have more to do next week against the Packers, and Cooks will be a borderline WR1 in that good matchup.
Oct 21 - 7:50 PM

Brandin Cooks caught 2-of-6 targets for 53 yards in the Rams' Week 6 win over the Broncos.

Cooks caught a 44-yard pass on the Rams' third play from scrimmage and went into witness protection thereafter. The Rams' passing attack never really got in gear as it dealt with injury to Cooper Kupp and watched Todd Gurley go bonkers on the ground. Cooks should bounce back as a high-end WR2 for Week 7 against the 49ers.
Oct 14 - 7:39 PM

Brandin Cooks (concussion) is active for Week 6 against the Broncos.

As is Cooper Kupp (concussion). After it initially looked like they might be short-handed on offense, the Rams will be full strength as they play in a blustery Denver. Inactive for the Rams are K Greg Zuerlein, DB Darious Williams, RB John Kelly, OLB Trevon Young, C Brian Allen, DT Sebastian Joseph-Day and DT Tanzel Smart.
Oct 14 - 2:37 PM

Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) will both play in Week 6 against the Broncos.

Cooks and Kupp were both full participants in practice on Friday and were cleared Saturday morning, as expected. The Rams will have their full arsenal of weapons on hand in what projects as a sneaky shootout against the Broncos. Expect no limitations for both Kupp and Cooks.
Oct 13 - 12:10 PM

Brandin Cooks (concussion) is expected to play in Week 6 against the Broncos.

Same goes for Cooper Kupp. Both were full participants in practice Friday and are expected to be cleared from the league's protocol on Saturday. The Rams are looking good to have their full arsenal of weapons on hand in Denver.
Oct 12 - 3:43 PM

Brandin Cooks (concussion) practiced again on Thursday.

As did Cooper Kupp (concussion). Per coach Sean McVay, both will be "full" on Friday if they escape Thursday's session symptom free. That would mean they will be good to go against the Broncos. It's looking good.
Oct 11 - 4:10 PM

Brandin Cooks (concussion) was cleared for Wednesday's walkthrough.

The Rams listed him as a DNP, though he's trending in the right direction for Week 6. Cooks' concussion is more of a concern than Cooper Kupp's, but both are expected to suit up against the Broncos. Josh Reynolds is the next man up if Cooks sits.
Oct 10 - 4:49 PM

Rams coach Sean McVay is "hopeful" Brandin Cooks (concussion) will be cleared to play this week.

He said the same of Cooper Kupp, who is also dealing with a concussion. "They felt good today. They didn’t have any symptoms or things like that," McVay said. "We’ll go through the standard operating procedure, and if everything checks out...then we’re hopeful to get those guys this week." Neither player is out of the woods yet, but optimism is better than the alternative. Josh Reynolds will fill in if either player is forced to sit.
Oct 9 - 9:21 AM

Brandin Cooks exited Week 5 against the Seahawks after taking a big helmet-to-helmet hit at the end of the second quarter.

Cooks took a scary hit to the head at the end of a catch in the two-minute drill. He was down on the field for a couple minutes before walking off on his own. He was taken straight into the locker room, and it would be a shock if he returns to this game. The catch on which he was injured was called back on a penalty -- astoundingly not for the hit -- so Cooks exited the game without recording a catch.
