Brandin Cooks resumes practicing for Texans on Thursday

Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks resumed practicing on Thursday.

What It Means:

Cooks was held out last week after he was displeased about not being traded at the deadline, but he's expected to return to a starting job in Week 10 against the New York Giants on Sunday. Nico Collins is also on track to return after missing two games with a groin injury. Cooks is leading the Texans with a 22.7% target share this season (7.6 per game) and he's playing the most offensive snaps among the team's pass-catchers (85.3%).

numberFire's models project Cooks for 6.7 targets, 4.0 receptions, and 46.8 yards on Sunday and he's the WR33 in our Week 10 PPR rankings. The Giants are allowing the fourth-fewest FanDuel points per game to wide receivers this season, but their pass defense is only 21st in numberFire's adjusted team metrics.
