As we inch closer to the 2020 NFL Draft, another splash trade was announced when the Houston Texans made yet another move at the wide receiver position: they acquired Brandin Cooks from the Los Angeles Rams. Here are the details of the trade:

Texans get – Brandin Cooks, 2022 4th-round pick

Rams get – 2020 2nd-round pick (57th overall)

This move makes it four different teams for Cooks as he prepares to enter his seventh season in the league. At 26-years old, his athleticism and history of consistent, high-end production offer a high ceiling for fantasy owners as he becomes one of the top targets for quarterback Deshaun Watson. However, a history of concussions has the unfortunate potential to derail his career at a young age.

Let’s take a closer look at this trade and determine if Cooks can become a top wide receiver in the league once again.
