Shark Bites

Browns WR Amari Cooper immediately became an impactful player in this offense following a trade from the Cowboys. He finished as the WR10 in PPR with 14.5 points per game in 2022. Digging into the numbers a bit, Cooper led the Browns in targets (133), target share (26.2%), air yards share (38.7%), and Weighted Opportunity Rating. Additionally, Cooper ranked 12th in PFF receiving grade, 12th in yards per route run (2.06), and 16th in receiving yards (1,160) among 34 WRs who saw 100+ targets last season. Granted, most of his production last year came with QB Jacoby Brissett under center. Cooper logged six top-12 weekly finishes in 2022, with only one coming in the six games that QB Deshaun Watson started from Week 13 on. Watson spent nearly two years away from the game of football due to off-field conduct and didn't play up to the previous level of performance he displayed as a member of the Texans. Should he improve, Cooper might be one of the best value picks in fantasy this season. The Browns' offense finished last year 22nd in pass rate, though they should improve upon that somewhat now that Watson has reacclimated himself to the NFL game after being away from the sport. If the Browns pass more and Cooper plays like his dominant self, he'll be a precious asset for fantasy managers. Take a peek at where Cooper appears in our current WR rankings.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (heel) is off the final injury report for the Wild Card round after putting in a full practice on Thursday. It looks like he'll be ready for his usual role in Saturday's game vs. the Texans. Cooper, of course, smoked Houston for 265 yards and two TDs just a few weeks ago.

Browns WR Amari Cooper said Wednesday that his injured heel is "getting better every day." He added that he could have played last week had the game meant anything and that he expects to play against the Texans on Saturday. Cooper missed practice again on Wednesday, though. We'll see if he gets on the field on Thursday and how he's listed on the final injury report for the Wild Card round.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (heel, rest) did not practice on Tuesday. He's been taking early-week practices off for most of the season, so we wouldn't read too much into this.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (heel) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He said Thursday that he expects to be ready for the Wild Card playoff game next weekend. WRs Elijah Moore (concussion) and Marquise Goodwin (knee) are listed as questionable. Both guys will likely be held out of this meaningless game. Cedric Tillman is the best target bet in Cleveland's WR corps this weekend.

Browns WR Amari Cooper (heel) said Thursday that he's feeling better every day and expects to be ready for the Wild Card playoff game next weekend, according to insider Scott Petrak. Cooper won't play in Sunday's meaningless finale vs. the Bengals, but it sounds like he's ok to draft in your playoff fantasy contests.
