Rams rookie WR Pharoh Cooper suffered a shoulder injury in Saturday's preseason game against the Broncos. The Los Angeles Times reports that he'll miss a few weeks, potentially including the regular-season opener. That's not going to be a big blow to anyone's fantasy lineup, but a healthy Cooper at least faces some opportunity upside in a weak L.A. receiving corps.
The Rams continued to build around QB Jared Goff by selecting WR Pharoh Cooper with the 117th overall pick of the 2016 draft. Cooper totaled 135 catches for 2,109 yards and 17 TDs in a crappy South Carolina passing game over the last 2 years. He added another 311 yards and 3 TDs on the ground. Cooper is a versatile and physical wideout but goes just 5’11, 203 pounds with subpar measurables. He figures to max out as a possession-type slot receiver. And Los Angeles isn’t a great landing spot.
