Back in 2014 I predicted Brandin Cooks would be the offensive rookie of the year. Little did I know my team had landed the wunderkind of that draft class, Odell Beckham, while Cooks quietly settled in as an afterthought behind a slew of 2014 rookie sensations. I may have been overzealous about Cooks’ rookie ceiling, but his NFL peak still stands to reach new heights. Coming off a sophomore campaign in which he caught 84 receptions for 1,138 yards and 9 TDs, Brandin Cooks is about to hit the third year stride we used to judge receivers on (before 2014 broke the mold).
This time of year many dynasty league owners are preparing for their rookie drafts and adjusting draft strategies for new dynasty start-ups. Personally, I feel it’s important to develop a draft strategy based around your league’s rules as well as the time of the year your Dynasty League is holding it’s draft.
