Amari Cooper Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Sunday that WR Amari Cooper (ankle) "looks great ... Everything has been extremely positive from the strength staff." Cooper, of course, remains on the active PUP list after January ankle surgery. The tentative plan is to have him get on the practice field in mid-August. McCarthy's words are nice -- but we can't feel totally confident drafting Cooper until we see him in action.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn't expect WR Amari Cooper (ankle) to practice until training camp breaks in mid-August. Cooper remains on the active PUP list after January ankle surgery. The team continues to express little concern about his status, but it sure seems like his recovery has taken longer than expected. Cooper comes with elevated risk until we see him back on the field.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) has been placed on the PUP list to open training camp. He's eligible to be activated at any time. Cooper had what was described as a "routine clean-up procedure" on that ankle back in January -- so it's at least slightly concerning that he's still not ready to go. We'll continue to monitor the situation.

Details on Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's offseason ankle surgery have been scarce. Until now. Sports Illustrated's Mike Fisher reports that it was a "routine clean-up procedure" and happened in January. Fisher adds that the team is "unconcerned about any long-term issues." ESPN's Todd Archer previously reported that Cooper is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, but Fisher hears that Cooper will be "cutting it close." We'll see when he's able to take to the practice field, but it doesn't sound like there's any concern about his status for the start of the season.

ESPN's Todd Archer hears that Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. He missed spring practices after undergoing ankle surgery this offseason. "They'll just monitor him and see how it goes" in camp, Archer adds. We'll be keeping a close eye on Cooper, who is going in the 3rd round of early fantasy drafts.

Cooper is "still working through" the issue, per McCarthy, and hasn't participated in spring practices. McCarthy added that he's "hopeful" Cooper will be ready for the start of training camp. We'll keep a close eye on him throughout the summer.
