Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are “likely” to release WR Amari Cooper. It's a matter of money, as the veteran is scheduled to count $22 million against Dallas' salary cap. (If cut, he’ll carry a figure of only ~$6 million.) Coming off an inconsistent year 2, CeeDee Lamb would project as the big winner here. Note that Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz are all impending free agents.
Update: According to multiple reports, the Cowboys will try to trade Cooper but are expected to release him if that doesn't work out. Multiple reports also have the team planning to try for a long-term deal with Gallup.
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.
