Eagles WR Riley Cooper (toe, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 10.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside
Compared to the other Eagle receivers, Riley Cooper has nice size and should be a potential red zone threat. Two years ago, he really connected with Nick Foles and from Week 6 on produced over 700 yards and seven TDs over the final 11 games in 2013. Cooper is in a good system as the Eagles run a fast-paced offense with a lot of plays.

Fantasy Downside
Cooper was a total bust in 2014 even when Foles was the QB. That continued after Mark Sanchez took over and used Jordan Matthews a lot more. The team drafted Nelson Agholor this past spring, and many feel Josh Huff is ready to take on a bigger role. That could push Cooper down to fourth on the Eagles depth chart. The team never seems to take advantage of his size in the red zone either, but that could also be due to a lack of trust.

Botton Line
Cooper does do a lot of things right, according to the team, but blocking and special team don't equal fantasy points. So, Cooper is buried at 78th on our WR list and there isn't a ton of value there right now. While you just never know in this offense, the odds seem stacked against him with other potential younger receivers poised to break out.
