News: 5 days agoCooper (hamstring) brought in three of six targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 44-20 win over the Giants on Sunday.
Spin: Cooper generated a second straight three-catch, one-touchdown effort while beating a questionable designation due to a hamstring injury, with Sunday's score coming on a 24-yard touchdown grab just before halftime. The veteran wideout has four straight three-reception tallies overall after posting a spectacular 13-139-2 line in Week 1 against the Buccaneers, and the six targets he saw versus the Giants were his highest total in that category since the opener as well. Cooper will look to get closer to full health during the coming week ahead of a showdown on the road with the Patriots next Sunday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Cooper is undoubtedly one of the league's top WR talents, so it may surprise you to know that the six-year NFL vet has yet to finish a season better than 10th in fantasy points. Volume is the primary culprit, as he's never exceeded a 23% target share or 130 targets in a single season. Despite the capped ceiling, Cooper has finished as a top-21 fantasy WR in five of six seasons, including each of the past three. The 27-year-old was fifth among wideouts in Dak Prescott's five starts last season and figures to pick up where he left off in Dallas' high-volume, loaded offense in 2021. Cooper is a solid WR2 with the potential for a career-best season.
