Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper will look to bounce back from a rough Week 5 in a Week 6 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Cooper was blanketed in coverage by James Bradberry last week while pretty much every other Cowboys receiving option had a plus matchup, so he was expected to struggle a bit. Still, his two catches for 23 yards was a disappointment after he saw 16 targets in Week 4. With Dak Prescott (ankle) done for the season, Andy Dalton will take over under center for the Cowboys. While he's no Dak Prescott, Dalton should be more than capable of moving the ball and scoring points. It's not too much of a downgrade for a receiver of Cooper's caliber. The Cardinals Defense doesn't often use Patrick Peterson in shadow coverage, so Cooper should be able to avoid him on some plays depending on how the Dallas offense lines up. He's a mid-range WR1 with upside this week.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught two of his four targets for 23 yards in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Spin: It appeared Cooper was being shadowed by James Bradberry for most of the day, which certainly contributed to this dud. Cornerbacks of Bradberry's caliber won't be lining up across from him every week, but the bigger concern moving forward is that Dak Prescott won't be throwing him the ball anymore in 2020. Andy Dalton is a capable quarterback, however, so Cooper's fantasy owners can probably continue to fire him up as a low-end WR1 moving forward, including in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper was targeted four times in a Week 5 win, catching two of those for 23 yards. Cooper fell way behind rookie CeeDee Lamb's 11 targets, and tied with Michael Gallup's four for second on the team. Cooper and most of the Cowboys offensive players will take a hit with Dak Prescott (ankle) almost certainly out for the year. Andy Dalton can run an offense, but he's no Dak Prescott. Cooper should settle into the mid-WR2 range.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is set up for another strong WR1 week in most formats, but especially in PPR leagues. Cooper and the Cowboys take on the New York Giants in Week 5. The Giants haven't done much to stop opposing wide receivers so far, and they haven't faced anyone like Cooper yet. Last week, Cooper caught a dozen passes and scored a touchdown while gaining 134 yards. He may not see the 16 targets he saw in Week 4 again this week, but he's essentially a lock for a high floor and has a very high ceiling to go with it.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper registered game highs with 12 receptions, 134 yards and 16 targets in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns, and he recorded one touchdown.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper was surprisingly the only Dallas receiver to go into triple-digit receiving yardage with Dak Prescott throwing for 502 yards. Fantasy owners of Cooper are glad it was their guy. He will look to stay hot in Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught 12 passes in Week 4, gaining 134 yards and scoring a touchdown. Cooper was targeted 16 times in a game where Dak Prescott attempted 58 passes. Cooper's touchdown came on a 20-yard catch and run near the end of the first quarter. Tons of players were targeted by Prescott in this one, but Cooper had twice as many targets as the next guy (Ezekiel Elliott and Dalton Schultz were both targeted eight times). Cooper continues to be an outstanding fantasy wide receiver in any format, with top-tier upside in PPR leagues.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been receiving tons of targets from quarterback Dak Prescott through the first three games of the season. Cooper is third in the NFL with 35 targets, making 25 catches for 267 yards. He hasn't scored a touchdown yet, which has settled him into a strong WR2 stat line, but he'll work his way into WR1 status as soon as he starts finding the end zone. He has a tough matchup against Denzel Ward this week, but Cooper has done well against strong defensive backs in the past.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper had nine receptions (on 12 targets) for 86 yards in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Spin: While Cooper was more of a chain mover on Sunday, he's clearly the most reliable option among Dallas' receivers. With so many other explosive options the veteran is more of a weekly WR2 with WR1 upside.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper made nine catches in a Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He was targeted a team-leading 12 times, gaining 86 yards on his nine grabs. Cooper tied with Ezekiel Elliott for the team lead in targets and led the team in catches, but fell behind Michael Gallup and Ced Wilson in yards. Both of those guys scored touchdowns in this one as well, while Cooper is still looking for his first score of the season. The Cowboys have all kinds of options in the passing game, which may limit Cooper's upside this season. He may settle into the high-end WR2 range for most games, but he'll often have WR1 upside.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been an effective fantasy wide receiver through two games despite not coming down with a touchdown yet. Cooper has totaled 16 catches for 181 yards on 23 targets. Facing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, the Cowboys should have another high-scoring offensive performance and Cooper is about as good a bet as anyone to score his first touchdown of 2020. Cooper is a mid-tier WR1 for Week 3.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper hauled in six of his nine targets for 100 yards in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper came through for his fantasy owners with 10 catches for 81 yards while drawing operating opposite Jalen Ramsey last week, so he's leaving no question he is still the clear lead receiver in Dallas. Having drawn 23 targets through two games and with a ton of weapons around him to keep some of the defensive attention off him, it's only a matter of time before he goes off for his fantasy owners. That time could be as soon as Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught six passes in an impressive Week 2 comeback win, gaining an even 100 yards. Cooper tied with rookie CeeDee Lamb for the lead among wide receivers with nine targets, both falling one behind tight end Dalton Schultz's 10. It was a strong performance from Cooper and the entire Cowboys offense, as they were down 20-0 after the first quarter and managed to come away with a 40-39 victory. Cooper has a tougher matchup against the Seahawks Defense next week but should remain a solid WR1/2 in that one.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper has been one of the better receivers in the NFL over the last few seasons and will continue to be the main option in the passing game for Dallas. He is a must-start option in all leagues this week.
Dallas Cowboys OT Tyron Smith (neck) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as questionable for Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. CB Anthony Brown (ribs) was added to the injury report Friday and was limited; he is also listed as questionable. DE Aldon Smith (tooth) did not practice for a second straight day Friday but was removed from the injury report. CB Jourdan Lewis (ankle) and WR Amari Cooper (ankle) practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) is not expected to miss any time in Week 2. Cooper was a late addition to the injury report this week, which is always concerning, but it seems he is fine and fully expected to play. Cooper is a high-upside WR1 as long as he suits up, as the Falcons Defense was annihilated by the Seahawks passing game last week. Cooper will match up with rookie defensive back A.J. Terrell.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to play in Week 2, head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday, Sept. 18. '(Cooper) went through the mock game and everything today,' McCarthy said. 'I don't foresee a setback there.'
Fantasy Spin: Cooper caught 10-of-14 targets for 81 yards in the Cowboys' opener, and has an even better matchup Sunday against the visiting Falcons. Barring any reversals of fortune in the next 48 hours, lock him in as a WR1 this week.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (foot) was limited in practice on Thursday, while left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) sat out. With La'el Collins and Cam Erving already on Injured Reserve, Smith's injury is one to watch heading into Week 2 against the Falcons. Cooper should be good to go this weekend as long as he doesn't suffer a setback in practice on Friday. If he were to sit out on Sunday, rookie CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup would see more targets in the passing game, especially with tight end Blake Jarwin out for the season. But if Cooper is active as expected, he'll be a surefire WR1 against a defense that was carved up by Russell Wilson in Week 1.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Spin: The team may have wanted to rest Cooper a bit during practice, but fantasy players will know more about his status in the next few days. He will have a favorable matchup this week and should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys DE Aldon Smith (tooth) and OT Tyron Smith (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17. WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was limited. CB Jourdan Lewis (ankle) practiced in full.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper shouldn't have too much trouble racking up fantasy points in a Week 2 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons secondary had no answer for any of the Seahawks wide outs in Week 1 and Cooper should add to that trend. He was targeted 14 times in Week 1 and caught 10 of those for 81 yards. He might not see quite that many targets this week, but he's a WR1 with an enormous PPR ceiling regardless.
