Week 3 at Seattle Seahawks
What a start to the season for Amari Cooper. He has racked up 23 targets in two games and turned that volume into 16 catches for 181 yards without a score. The touchdowns should be coming for Cooper, who clearly remains Dak Prescott's top target in the passing game. Cooper's high-volume usage makes him immune from most matchup concerns, and those concerns aren't even present this week as he gets to take on a flailing Seattle secondary that has been burnt by the likes of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and Julian Edelman so far this season. Cooper should have little trouble getting separation from the Seattle corners and has blowup potential in a projected shootout. Start Cooper as a strong WR1 against the Seahawks this weekend.
Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reports Friday that WR Amari Cooper “went through the mock game and everything today. I don’t foresee a setback there.”
Cooper had his hands full Sunday night. The Cowboys are lined up for an offensive shootout with the Atlanta Falcons this Sunday, a game that Cooper would be expected to be a top 15 fantasy producer at wide receiver. His injury history is a concern and time sidelined will always be a concern with Cooper leading up to game day.
