Shark Bites

The Raiders have traded WR Amari Cooper to the Cowboys in exchange for a 1st-round pick. That's a massive price to pay for a guy who's been more disappointing than not since the start of the 2017 campaign. Of course, Cooper is still just 24, has a 1st-round resume and has certainly flashed upside. This isn't exactly a great landing spot, though. Cooper will be the clear #1 option in Dallas' passing game, but the Cowboys rank 31st in pass rate. Plus, it tends to be tough for WRs to settle into new offenses mid-season. Consider Cooper a WR3 for now. Oakland, meanwhile, is left with Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts atop the WR depth chart.

Recent Shark Bites

Browns WR Amari Cooper drew a target on 32.4% of QB Jacoby Brissett's dropbacks in Sunday's OT win over the Buccaneers, turning his 12 looks into 7 catches for 94 yards. Cooper could have had even more but dropped a long pass late in regulation. He made up for that with a 46-yard reception to set up the game-winning TD run in OT. For the game, Cooper accounted for 30.4% of Browns receptions and 44.8% of receiving yards. WR David Bell ranked 2nd among wideouts with 4 catches for 23 yards on 6 targets. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones contributed just 2 receptions for 16 yards among 4 targets. WR Anthony Schwartz added 1 catch but ran for a 31-yard TD on a 1st-quarter reverse. Browns receivers should have a new QB next time out, with Deshaun Watson eligible to return from suspension in Week 13.

Browns WR Amari Cooper snagged 3 of 4 targets for 74 yards in Week 7. He seemed to be on his way to a big day after hauling in a 55-yard deep ball in the 1st quarter. Yet in total, he saw just a 14.8% target share. Cooper's still racked up 70+ yards in 4 of his past 6 matchups. And Cleveland’s game script could force more passing than desired this week against the surging Bengals.

Browns WR Amari Cooper caught 4 balls for 44 yards and Cleveland's only TD in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He drew 12 targets, a 26.7% share and double the total of his nearest teammate. The Browns get an upside passing matchup vs. Baltimore in Week 7.

Browns WR Amari Cooper rebounded from a disappointing Week 4 to deliver a 7-76-1 receiving line among 12 targets in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He ate up 35.3% of Cleveland targets for the game. WR Donovan Peoples-Jones ranked 2nd at 7 looks, catching 4 or 50 yards.

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.
