You take out week 5 since cook injured and he avgs 7.75 targets a game. When you all drafted Brandin Cooks can you tell me you drafted him to be 12-15 target guy? No you drafted him to be your boom/bust stretch the field guy, and with 7.75 targets avg per game that's very possible and has worked out for you 2/5 weeks. 1 Week Injured and 2 serviceable weeks...
Week one a bit disappointing given Goff terrible throws 2 catches from 6 targets but weeks 2 & 3 he outplayed his point projects and gave you what you drafted him to do, in my week 3 he won me my week by 1 point with that Monday night performance of 16 .5 ppr points. Tampa bay game was one of the weirdest games we've seen with the LAR DST getting torched and yes Goff on the road went to safety blanket players Kupp/Woods and even Everett for short yardage because he was throwing interceptions like crazy.
So really everyone is panicking because 1) Kupp is a monster who didn't slow down due to injury and 2) Cooks maybe lost you week 5 because injured by concussion. 3) You could of picked Kupp over Cooks.
My simple argument is he isn't much of a bust unless you reached for him in your draft, if you took him around your adp he is still getting you value. Let's hope LAR get rolling again as the season goes on and all 3 WR's will continue to do well.
