Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks (hamstring) exited practice after his hamstring 'got a little bit tight' Thursday, Aug. 1, according to head coach Sean McVay.
Huddle Up: With all the weapons the Rams have on offense, Cooks may deliver the occasional mediocre outing, but he's a proven performer. He has topped 1,000 yards in each of the last four seasons, logging a career-high 1,204 yards last season. The hamstring issue doesn't sound serious. Don't hesitate to draft him as a WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks said he has focused on improving his timing with QB Jared Goff this offseason. 'You can always have perfect timing out there when you're throwing on air,' Cooks said. 'But now we've got defenders out there, just continue to work on that and get better at that, so we can be the best we can possibly be.'
Huddle Up: Cooks can pile up yards in bunches, and while he will deliver the occasional dud, he still finished 2018 with 80 grabs for 1,204 yards. Locked in as one of the main weapons for the Rams, he's a WR2.

Los Angeles Rams WR Brandin Cooks caught three of seven targets for 22 yards in Week 14 versus the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: The entire Rams' offense appeared to be bothered by the cold, and Cooks was no exception. Prince Amukamara also did not make life easy on him for most of the evening, typically allowing . As painful as this result was for his fantasy owners, Cooks should be able to rebound in a big way against the Philadelphia Eagles' decimated secondary in Week 15.
