How to handle Brandin Cooks’ injury in Week 10 fantasy football

Cooks is a no-go this week.

The Los Angeles Rams will be without the services of wide receiver Brandin Cooks when they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers this week. Cooks is still dealing with a concussion he suffered last month.

Cooks initially suffered the injury back in Week 8 in a game against the Bengals. He took a hard hit to his head early in the action and left the game. The good news for Cooks and the Rams is that he was cleared to return to practice, albeit in a limited role, on Friday, making it more likely that he could return to action in Week 11.

The bad news is that Cook has a history with head injuries. This is the second time this season he has had a concussion.

Cooper Kupp is still the Rams No. 1 receiver, soaking up most of the yardage and looks in the passing game, but there is usually plenty to go around. Robert Woods hasn’t been as productive as he has been in the past, but Josh Reynolds, who took over when Cooks left two weeks ago, filled the gap nicely. Reynolds caught three balls for 73 yards and a touchdown in Week 8. Even better for fantasy planning is that he was targeted eight times. Better yet, Reynolds will only set you back $3,800 in DK leagues this week.
