What You Need to Know:

  • The Browns acquired Cooper for just a 5th-round pick and a swap of 6th-round positions with the Cowboys.
  • Dallas’ primary motivation was clearly to unload a contract that runs through 2024, with cap hits of more than $23 million in each of the final 2 seasons and more than $10 million in dead cap over the final 3.
  • Cooper joins an offense that targeted WRs at the league’s 3rd lowest rate each of the past 2 years.
  • The Browns then dumped target leader Jarvis Landry (87 targets, 16.7% of team total) this offseason. Cleveland has also shed TE Austin Hooper (11.7%), Rashard Higgins (9.0%) and Odell Beckham (6.5%) since the start of last season.
  • Through 7 seasons across 2 teams, Cooper has never reached 23% target share. Here are his annual shares (adjusted for games missed):

  • It’s tough to argue against this Cleveland team featuring the weakest target competition Cooper has faced to date. The next most seasoned wideout is 3rd-year Donovan Peoples-Jones, with 78 career targets, 48 receptions and 11 starts to date. David Njoku and Harrison Bryant present receiving upside at TE, though. And Cleveland’s backfield returns intact (barring a Kareem Hunt move ahead of the season).
  • The Browns have run at the 4th and 7th highest rates in the league in 2 seasons under Stefanski. But they’re paying Cooper a hefty amount this year and gave up 3 first-round picks plus a lot of guaranteed money to land QB Deshaun Watson.
  • The new QB sure seems to be headed for some kind of league suspension.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We could dig further into Cooper’s metrics, but we know pretty well what he brings as a receiver at this point. He’s efficient and productive but has never quite reached that top range of target share. Cooper went from trailing Michael Crabtree in Oakland to narrowly leading Michael Gallup and then CeeDee Lamb in Dallas. Perhaps the lesser WR competition in Cleveland gives him a nudge in that category. But we have to balance that possibility with an offense that has ranked among the most run-heavy since Kevin Stefanski arrived and – probably more importantly – a QB that looks like a good bet for suspension.

If the league finally sits Deshaun Watson down, Cooper would likely be catching passes from Jacoby Brissett. The best-case scenario there would be Cleveland convincing Baker Mayfield to reclaim his job. Either way, it would be a lackluster situation for pass-catcher ceiling.

Cooper is fine at his low-WR2 ADP, but his only path to significantly outperforming that is Watson avoiding suspension and playing like his old self.

Amari Cooper, WR CLE

8:24am EDT 9/23/22

Cooper has 2nd straight big game

After posting a 9-101-1 line in Week 2, Browns WR Amari Cooper racked up 7 catches on 11 targets for 101 yards and a TD in Thursday night's win over the Steelers. Cooper was creating big separation all night, scoring on a slant from 11 yards out and tallying 3 grabs of 18+ yards. After garnering 17.6% of Browns targets in the opener, Cooper has registered big 37.0% and 35.5% target shares the past 2 outings. If he stays anywhere near that level, he'll be an every-week fantasy starter -- even in a run-leaning Cleveland offense.

Browns WR Amari Cooper came alive for 9 catches, 101 yards and 1 score vs. the Jets. His 10 targets led the team and represented a huge 37% share. He also saw a whopping 68% of Cleveland’s air yards. His lone score came on a busted zone coverage in the end zone. Overall, it was nice to see a more accurate Jacoby Brissett utilizing Cooper in the short to intermediate ranges. The former Cowboy should be treated as a WR3 for now.

WR Donovan Peoples-Jones led the Browns in targets (11), receptions (6) and receiving yards (60) in Sunday's win over the Panthers. He beat WR Amari Cooper by 5 targets, while RB Kareem Hunt was the only other Cleveland player to catch more than 3 balls or crack 20 receiving yards. Cooper managed just a 3-17 receiving line on his 6 looks. Anthony Schwartz drew the only other 2 targets among WRs.

Following a settlement between the Browns and the league, QB Deshaun Watson will be suspended 11 games. He’ll pay a $5 million fine and be required to enter a treatment program. Watson’s now scheduled to make his Browns debut in Week 13… at Houston. The 11-game suspension makes Watson undraftable outside of deep 2-QB leagues and maybe as a last-round pick in best-ball tournaments. The fantasy values of guys like Nick Chubb, Amari Cooper and David Njoku also take a hit with the news. We'll see if Cleveland makes a move for QB Jimmy Garoppolo.

Browns WR Amari Cooper returned to practice on Wednesday. He tweaked his right ankle on Monday, but it looks like a non-issue going forward.

Dynasty Write-up
Moving to Cleveland lands Cooper in a run-leaning offense, but that might shift after the Browns traded for QB Deshaun Watson. Cooper has maintained production through 7 years across 2 franchises with changing personnel around him and will still be just 28 when the coming season begins. He should be a good bet for more target share than he garnered in Dallas the past 2 years.
