2019 RTSports Outlook

A trade to the Cowboys was just the thing to jumpstart Cooper's career. He had a huge finish to his season with the Cowboys, having 53 receptions for 725 yards and six touchdowns in nine games with Dallas. He hit the 1,000-yard mark for the season despite having just 280 years in six games with the Raiders. Cooper had three 100-yard games with the Dallas and at least four receptions all but a game. He will be the top target in this offense from day one this year. Cooper is just 25 years old and has 1,000-yard seasons three of four seasons in the NFL. Cooper is the complete package at receiver. Cooper gets in and out of his breaks with great speed. He makes a lot of plays downfield but also can be a top possession receiver because of his great hands. He has good strength for the position but doesn't play overly physical. Cooper has lacked some consistency in recent years but seemed to put that behind him last year with the Cowboys. Fantasy Outlook: Cooper is likely a top-10 fantasy receiver if he plays with the Cowboys all last year. We aren't sure he can sustain that play in this offense but should be considered a top-15 option. Look for around 85 receptions for 1,200 yards and near double-digit scores.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Once upon a time, Amari Cooper was the next great wide receiver, and then the 2017 season happened, in which Cooper was held to just 680 receiving yards and looked to be turning into a bust. But the Raiders dealt Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys during the 2018 season, and in nine games with Dallas, Cooper caught 53 passes for 725 yards and six touchdowns. The fourth-year wideout was finally starting to look like he was ready to fulfill the promise he showed early in his Raiders career. Now, Cooper is the unquestioned number-one option for the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott, who looks to be on the upswing after a solid ending to his 2018 campaign. With a new offensive coordinator in tow as well in Dallas, the Cowboys offense could reach new heights in 2019, and the development of the Prescott and Cooper connection will be a huge piece of that. Yes, Coopers fantasy owners will have to assume the risk that the former Alabama receiver will revert to the inconsistent ways that plagued the end of his Oakland career, but its a good bet that hell be a dynamic part of the Cowboys offense this year, finally giving the team a successor to Dez Bryant as their top receiving threat on the outside. Consider him a WR2 with WR1 upside heading into 2019.

Dec 4 4:03pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Dec. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper should continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys and is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Dec 3 7:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) remained a full participant at practice Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper rebounded from his Week 12 shutout against the New England Patriots to catch eight of 11 targets for 85 yards against the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving. He hasn't found the end zone since Week 10, but he has a quality matchup in Week 14 against a Chicago Bears pass defense which was roasted by Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay on Thanksgiving.

From TheHuddle

Dec 3 5:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys S Jeff Heath (shoulder), LB Sean Lee (pectoral, non-injury), LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck), DT Antwaun Woods (knee) and RB Tony Pollard (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, Dec. 3. DL Michael Bennett (foot), WR Randall Cobb (illness), OT La'el Collins (knee), OG Zack Martin (elbow, ankle), OT Tyron Smith (Achilles) and S Darian Thompson (arm) were limited. WR Amari Cooper (knee) and CB Byron Jones (hip) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Dec 3 12:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been a WR1 almost all season, but he'll be more of a limited-upside WR2 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs. Cooper seems to still be struggling with a knee injury despite logging full practices and undergoing an MRI that showed no structural damage. Besides all that, he takes on the Bears Defense in Chicago on Thursday Night Football this week. The Bears have been a nightmare to opposing wide receivers, leaving Cooper ranked somewhere between WR15-25 this week.

From RotoBaller

Dec 2 5:13pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Dec. 2.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper has posted at least 80 yards in four of the last six games and continues to be the main option in the passing game. He should be a starting option in all leagues this week.

From TheHuddle

Dec 2 4:40pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (knee) was a full participant in practice on Monday. "Its healed better than I thought it would. Im good to go," Cooper said. Cooper has fought through a handful of injuries this year but hasn't missed any games and remains productive for fantasy owners. Against a Bears Defense that is much better against the run, Cooper will remain a high-end WR1 on Thursday night. He should be good to go unless he has a setback in the next two days.

From RotoBaller

Dec 1 12:50pm ET

There has been no progress on new deals for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and cornerback Byron Jones, who are all eligible for free agency after this season, according to sources. Prescott has built a case to become the highest paid quarterback in the league and he's the team's priority. The only way Cooper doesn't hit the market is if the franchise tag is placed on him, and Dallas could easily use it on Prescott. Jones, a former first-rounder, will be positioned well on the open market with years of experience at safety and corner. It's looking likely that he will be playing elsewhere in 2020. If Cooper leaves, Michael Gallup would be the No. 1 wideout in Dallas.

Nov 29 6:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (knee) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Bears next Thursday, according to head coach Jason Garrett. Cooper tweaked his knee late in the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bills, but he was able to return in the game and should be able to play through yet another ailment this year. Despite his nagging injuries in 2019, Cooper hasn't missed a game and has put up consistent, elite numbers for his fantasy owners. Even in a tough draw against Chicago's defense, Cooper will remain firmly in the WR1 mix.

From RotoBaller

Nov 29 3:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper's (knee) MRI exam on his left knee showed no structural damage, according to a source. Cooper took a hit to his knee in the fourth quarter of the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Bills but was able to return to the game. He was limping noticeably after the game, though, which prompted the MRI exam on Friday. Cooper has played through heel, ankle, knee and quadriceps injuries this year but has remained productive and hasn't missed a game. He had eight catches on 11 targets for 85 yards on Thursday, and he'll remain a WR1 despite a tough matchup next Thursday against the Bears.

From RotoBaller

Nov 29 2:23pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) did not suffer any structural damage to his left knee, according to results from an MRI on Friday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Spin: Good news for Cooper who took a shot to his knee during Thanksgiving's loss to the Bills but was able to return and finish eight catches for 85 yards on 11 targets. We'll monitor his status over the next week, but he should be ready to plug in his usual WR1 role.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 8:43pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) will undergo an MRI Friday, Nov. 29, after leaving late in the game Thursday, Nov. 28, due to a knee injury.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper caught eight of 11 targets for 85 yards before his departure. It was a strong bounce-back outing after being held without a catch against the New England Patriots in Week 12. The Cowboys play against next Thursday against the Chicago Bears.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 8:20pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper caught eight passes in Week 13, gaining 85 yards. Cooper was unable to score on Thanksgiving, but it was good to see him heavily involved in the passing game. He led the team in catches, targets, and yards. After a pair of rough outings, fantasy owners are likely feeling a bit better about Cooper in the fantasy playoffs. They'll have another tough challenge next Thursday against the Chicago Bears, though.

From RotoBaller

Nov 28 8:03pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught eight of his 11 targets for 85 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 13.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper's longest reception of the game was just 17 yards, as he was unable to break free for any game-changing plays. It was a promising bounce back after being held without a catch against the New England Patriots in Week 12. He should get back on track against the softening Chicago Bears' secondary in Week 14.

From TheHuddle

Nov 26 2:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper will be looking for a rebound performance on Thanksgiving when the Cowboys take on the Buffalo Bills. The Week 13 matchup isn't great for Cooper or the Cowboys, but he can't do worse than he did in Week 12, when he was held without a catch on just two targets. The Bills Defense is good, but they're not Patriots-good, so Cooper should be able to at least catch a pass. He's ranking more as a lower-end WR2 until he shows that his various injuries aren't causing more issues than he and the team are leading on.

From RotoBaller

Nov 24 11:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper failed to catch either of his targets in a 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 12.

Fantasy Spin: New England's secondary is the best in the league, and the Patriots simply erased Cooper from the equation. There will be much better days ahead for the go-to weapon of the Dallas passing attack.

From TheHuddle

Nov 24 8:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper had no catches on two targets against the New England Patriots in Week 12. The only point he scored was from a tackle following an interception. He did have a 20-yard reception nullified from an official review, but he was bottled up all game. He'll have a midrange matchup against the Buffalo Bills Thursday night, and he'll be a low-end WR1.

From RotoBaller

Nov 22 6:23pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 12.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper is coming off a disappointing Week 11 performance but has posted at least 80 yards in four of the last six games. He will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense but should still be a starting option in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 22 5:43pm ET

Dallas Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) did not practice Friday, Nov. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 12 versus the New England Patriots. LB Joe Thomas (illness) did not practice all week, while S Donovan Wilson (illness) did not practice for a second straight day Friday; both players are listed as questionable. OG Connor Williams (knee) was limited in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. OT La'el Collins (knee, back), LB Sean Lee (non-injury) and OG Zack Martin (back, ankle, elbow) were limited Friday but no longer appear on the injury report. WR Amari Cooper (knee), S Jeff Heath (shoulder) and DE DeMarcus Lawrence (neck) practiced in full all week and have also been removed from the injury report. DT Antwaun Woods was upgraded to a full practice Friday and also no longer appears on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Nov 21 4:53pm ET

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 21.

Fantasy Spin: Cooper probably will be on the injury report for several more weeks but is in no danger of missing games. He will have a tough matchup this week but should still be a No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 20 5:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (knee) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Cooper continues to battle through injuries this year, but he's fully expected to play in Week 12's showdown with the Patriots on the road. He'll likely be shadowed by shutdown cornerback Stephon Gilmore in this one, but Cooper is a must-start fantasy commodity as long as he's playing. With that said, Dallas' No. 1 wideout will be more of a low-end WR1 this weekend, and fantasy owners should temper expectations just a bit.
