The Cowboys traded WR Amari Cooper and a 6th-round pick to the Browns in exchange for 5th- and 6th-round picks. The compensation is minimal because Cleveland is taking on all of Cooper's $20 million cap hits over the next 3 seasons. The Cowboys were reportedly set to release Cooper if they couldn't find a trade partner. Dallas is believed to be the frontrunners to re-sign WRs Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson, who would join CeeDee Lamb as the team's top 3 WRs. In Cleveland, meanwhile, Cooper should establish himself as the #1 WR. Exactly how big a target share he garners will depend on whether the Browns bring back WR Jarvis Landry and/or add more to the WR room. But a run-first offense and questionable QB play puts a damper on Cooper's 2022 fantasy outlook.
Browns WR Amari Cooper revealed on Tuesday that he underwent surgery this offseason for a core-muscle injury that he played through last year. Cooper was on the injury report with a hip late in the season, although it's unclear if this is related. Regardless, he said that he's "doing well now," per ESPN's Jake Trotter, so it doesn't sound like it'll impact his 2023 campaign. Cooper is coming off a 78-1,160-9 line and WR10 PPR finish in his Browns debut last year -- which now looks even more impressive considering he did it while dealing with this core-muscle injury.
Browns WR Amari Cooper snagged 3 of 4 targets for 105 yards in Week 17's win over the Commanders. Much of his production came on a pair of 30+ yards TDs from QB Deshaun Watson in the 2nd half of Sunday's contest. Only 1 other Browns' pass-catcher had more than a single catch. Cooper is set to go up against a fairly beatable Steelers secondary next Sunday in Week 18 action.
Browns WR Amari Cooper (hip) carries no injury designation ahead of Saturday's game vs. the Saints. It seems his absence from practice this week was merely rest-related. The weather in Cleveland is going to be brutal, so Cooper is a WR3 at best. Nothing against him. Fantasy managers might want to look for players in better weather conditions for their lineups.
Browns WR Amari Cooper (hip) was given another rest day again on Wednesday. TE David Njoku kept his limited participation going as well. We didn't get much new information today ahead of Saturday's game vs. the Saints. Check back tomorrow once we learn more about these two.
