News: 2 days agoCoach Kevin Stefanski said after Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams that Cooper suffered a concussion during the game, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Spin: Cooper was evaluated for a concussion after exiting with a head injury in the second quarter, and Stefanski revealed that those tests confirmed a concussion for the wide receiver. Prior to exiting, Cooper caught three of five targets for 34 yards. He'll have to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol in order to suit up in Week 14 against the Jaguars.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cooper was traded to the Browns last offseason and proceeded to put together one of his best NFL campaigns. The former Raiders and Cowboys star posted career-high marks in target share (26%), touchdowns (nine) and end zone targets (15), the latter of which was exceeded by only DK Metcalf. Cooper also matched his career-best fantasy finish (10th), and that was with Deshaun Watson suspended for 11 games. He has now finished all eight of his NFL seasons between 14th and 31st in fantasy PPG. Cooper is entering his age-29 season as a clear No. 1 target and will have Watson under center from the get-go this time around. He's a fringe WR2.
