The Dallas Cowboys fired offensive coordinator Scott Linehan on Friday. The decision was mutual, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Dallas' offense finished 22nd in the league in both total offense and scoring offense, averaging just 21.2 points per game. It wasn't until the team traded for wide receiver Amari Cooper that the offense started to actually move the football with more consistency, but to be fair they didn't have many weapons outside of running back Ezekiel Elliott. The next offensive coordinator will be expected to develop a strong rapport with quarterback Dak Prescott, who is in line to receive a contract extension in the near future.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his nine targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Fantasy Spin: After providing a major spark to the Dallas offense after coming aboard, Cooper seems destined to be the focal point of the passing attack for the Cowboys in 2019 and a WR2 for fantasy owners.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught seven passes for 106 yards in Saturday's Wild Card win. Cooper was targeted nine times and was clearly quarterback Dak Prescott's preferred target. Despite Cooper's relative struggles away from Dallas, he will have to remain a huge part of the offense if the Cowboys expect to keep up with either the Rams or the Saints next week. Cooper will be a high-upside DFS play.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught seven of his nine targets for 106 yards in a 24-22 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper ended the regular season with three quiet games in a row, but he was back to making big plays in the Cowboys' playoff opener. He has WR1 potential for playoff contests as the clear No. 1 option in the Dallas passing attack.
Cowboys' WR Amari Cooper had 7 receptions for 106 yards but no touchdowns in Saturday's win against the Seahawks.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper didn't close off the season on a great note, catching just five passes for 31 yards despite being targeted 11 times. Cooper could not get on the same page as quarterback Dak Prescott, and simply has not looked like the Amari Cooper who finally showed the WR1 upside after joining the Cowboys. It's something to keep in mind for playoffs DFS players, especially with the games Blake Jarwin and Cole Beasley had while Cooper struggled.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper finished with five receptions for 31 yards on 11 targets in Week 17 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't a great fantasy performance, but it was a rather meaningless game. He'll be a highly coveted receiver for those in postseason fantasy leagues after his strong finish to the season.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught four passes on Sunday, totaling just 20 yards. Since his explosion in Week 14, Cooper has disappointed two weeks in a row, catching eight passes for a total of 52 yards. With the Cowboys locked into the NFC East title regardless of the results of Week 17, Cooper is likely to sit for the last game of the regular season.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper posted four grabs for just 20 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fantasy Spin: It was a bitter pill for fantasy owners hoping the good times would roll in what was the championship week for most. He'll look to finish up strong on the road in Week 17 against the Giants before the team's home wild-card game the following weekend.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16, and the Buccaneers have allowed the second-most receiving touchdowns this season.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper is coming off his worst game as a Cowboy, but facing one of the friendliest matchups possible, he should vault right back into WR2 territory.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught four of his seven passes for 32 yards and added an 11-yard run in a 23-0 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15.
Fantasy Spin: After a monster performance against the Eagles, Cooper had arguably his worst performance since joining the Cowboys. On the plus side, he has a golden opportunity to rebound against Tampa Bay in Week 16.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught just four passes in Week 15, gaining 32 yards. The entire Dallas offense was a mess, as they did not score and rarely even came close to the end zone. Cooper was targeted six times, but quarterback Dak Prescott was sailing overthrows all day. Cooper should fare better next week against the Tampa Bay "defense."
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is a solid option in Week 15 despite facing off against a tough Colts defense. Since joining the Cowboys, Cooper has been the second highest scoring wide receiver in the NFL in terms of fantasy points, and he leads the league in receiving yardage. He's seen a full 25 percent of quarterback Dak Prescott's targets since joining the team, and there's no reason to believe that will go down. The Colts do defend outside receivers well, in fact they've only allowed one WR1 week all season, so Cooper's ceiling takes a slight hit, but he's still a strong WR2 with a decent floor.
Cowboys' WR Amari Cooper scored an impressive 49.70 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 14 win against the Eagles. Cooper caught 10 passes for 217 yards with three touchdowns.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper post 10 catches for 217 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winning score on a deflection in overtime, in the Week 14 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. In six games with the Cowboys he has 34 grabs, 642 yards and six scores after just 22 catches, 280 yards and one touchdown in the first six games with Oakland.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper looks rejuvenated playing in Dallas with Dak Prescott after losing a little of his luster in Oakland. Fantasy owners are riding the former Alabama star to big points at the most important time of the season.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper had a fantastic game on Sunday, catching 10 passes on 13 targets, gaining 217 yards and scoring three touchdowns. His touchdowns came from 28, 75, and 15 yards out. It was an absolutely dominant performance from Cooper, but the same can't be expected against a team with a real secondary. The Eagles, meanwhile, have become a defensive matchup to target in the fantasy playoffs.
Cowboys' WR Amari Cooper had 10 receptions for 217 yards with three touchdowns for an outstanding 21.7 yards per catch in Sunday's win against the Eagles.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper seems set for another solid performance in a Week 14 divisional matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Cooper has now played in five games as a Cowboy, and he's seen at least 25 percent of the team's targets in four of those five games. When the Cowboys and Eagles clashed in Week 10, Cooper caught six passes on 10 targets for 75 yards. He's a solid WR2 option this week with some upside in what should be a close game throughout.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper was targeted eight times on Thursday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints, catching all eight for 75 yards. He did lose a fumble, but Cooper was doing a good job getting open, even though he wasn't able to do much with the ball after the catch. Cooper continues to look more and more comfortable as the key part of the Dallas passing game and should keep putting up strong WR2 numbers into the fantasy playoffs.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper all eight of his targets for 75 yards in a 13-10 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 13. He also lost a fumble.
Fantasy Spin: The trade is working out nicely for both Cooper and the Cowboys. Dallas is taking command of its division, and Cooper looks like a weekly WR2 candidate.
