Not sure what to think on this one.

Edelman only has one year left on his contract but he's cheap. I imagine he would continue to be cheap if the Pats offered him another contract next year.

Great for Brady. Could go either way for Cooks.

Cooks is overrated to start with so the Patriots are as good a spot as any. When he was drafted by the Saints I felt he was lucky as fuck. These two offenses are high-powered enough to keep people believing in him.

Brees throws a little bit more than Brady, and more passes go to Gronk/TE in NE. Cooks was set up to succeeed in NO, this is a downtick for him for sure.

Great pick up for Brady IMO
Cooks will be fine especially since Gronk sits half a season due to injury yearly, so his stats will be fine even if it takes until his 2nd year.

I'm not too upset about Mitchell. Edelman and amendola are likely only around for 1 more year. He'll get his shot. Just need to be patient.

I think Edelman was be around as long as Brady is there. He'll keep taking team friendly deals.

So 1 (maybe 2) more years then?

Middle of the field could open up for Edelman with Cooks on the outside. Pats haven't really had someone with vertical speed like Cooks.

I agree. I think this helps Edelman more than anything. Cooks will have his games, but it'll still be scary to start him.

Great article Brad, thanks for sharing!

As a Pats fan I'm stoked to have him and he's looked great so far, but I'm staying away from him for now in fantasy

Yeah, I am staying away too. Too many weapons, too unpredictable, Edelmonster, ick. I stay away from Cooks. I think he will be a better NFL player than fantasy with the Patriots.

Never been a fan and I'll believe he's a good fit for NE when I see it. I'm prepared to laugh at his owners if it all goes south though cuz I'm a dick.

After reading that, it's not going to go south. It may not meet a lot of people's expectations, but when someone works as hard as he (apparently) does... they'll be just fine.

Probably right. Likely comes down to what people consider a success. I've heard some say Amendola has done well in NE and I think he's as blah as it gets.

I would say realistic success for Cooks will be staying in the top 20 for fantasy WRs... Exceptional success would be top 10.

I could convince you about dola in one article but I'll save that for another time (again in real value not fantasy). For what it's worth Hogan has been stellar in camp and Mitchell is still improving from his already solid rookie year

I'd like to see Mitchell get more time. I think they might have something in that kid but he needs to stay healthy and they need to lose some of those hosers they believe are assets cuz they're not.

I think he will have a similar year to last season. I try not to do projections because they are always wrong and you can talk yourself out of good players. That's what is happening a lot I think. People say there are so many mouths to feed but there aren't really. Edelman, Gronk and that's it. No way Malcolm Mitchell or Danny Amendola will have an effect on Cooks season. I think Belicheck really likes him and will use him a lot in the red zone and on deep targets - fantasy gold.

Yeah Ross, Belichick loves him. They practiced with the Saints in 2015 and 2016. The hooded one said in 2015 "I'm glad we don't have to play him twice a year" and in 2016 he said "it doesn't get much better than him." That praise also hasn't slowed this preseason

The same could be said for about a quarter of WRs in the league. Potential points do nothing in regards to fantasy points. Just proves he a boom or bust guy that Brady isn't looking for.

It says that in the article as well, but also proves the upside is there. Definitely easy to see with him watching the games. That chemistry just is not there.

Yeah, not buying it. Cooks is what he is in that offense. Brady plays to who is open, if that is Cooks, he will get the ball. Targets have been there, and he hasn't connected on a few of them. 11 targets in 2 games is not amazing, and he depends on volume.

I think Cooks will have a handful of big games, a few good games, and a few duds. Just my opinion.

It is an interesting article.

It may also be that Brady's O-Line is not as solid as it has been in the past and he doesn't have as much time to look for deep routes. Brady was only sacked 15 times in 2016 and has already been sacked 5 times this season.

I also noticed that if you take out Cook's 20 yards YAC (125 yards - 20 yards after catch equal 105 yards) then his average completion routes are 21 yards. (105 yards div by 5 catches) Not sure any Patriot WR has ever had completion routes that deep. In 2016, when Gronk avg over 21 yards per catch, take out is YAC, and his completion routes average less than 13 yards.

I'd like to think that chemistry is probably also playing a role.
