The WR1 for the Texans is going to be a valuable fantasy asset this season.

With the departure of DeAndre Hopkins and his 150 targets, what fantasy owners need to know is who on the Texans will replace him. Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller are the obvious two candidates to replace Hopkins as the WR1, but it’s unknown which will be targeted more and how exactly this offense will look in 2020. Cooks has more years of proven production, but Fuller has an established rapport with Deshaun Watson, and has shown flashes of greatness.

Cooks and Fuller currently being ranked back to back in both ADP and ECR in both standard and PPR formats. ECR has Fuller at 35, Cooks at 36; ADP has them reversed. While working on my projections for the Texans, I realized that they shouldn’t be so even. Cooks is the better option, and it’s not even close. To explain why, I’m going to do an in-depth comparison of these two receivers. Enjoy!
