News: 20 hours agoCooper (rest/ribs) was listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Spin: Cooper didn't practice Wednesday due to a listed combination of rest and the rib injury, but his return to a limited session Thursday has him trending in a positive direction as Sunday's game against the Rams approaches. Per Cabot, Cooper plans to play this weekend, though unless the wideout is deemed a full practice participant Friday, he could carry an injury designation into the game.
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.
