2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
For the second straight season, Cooper started off the 2020 year red hot, with an average of 12.75 targets in each of his first four games. Yet, unlike in 2019, Cooper did not turn that elite target volume into touchdowns, with just one TD reception in those four games and only five total on the year.

Cooper's five receiving touchdowns equaled the lowest output of his career, despite the six-year veteran posting his career-best 92 catches.

His decline in yards per reception and touchdown rate can be attributed to the loss of quarterback Dak Prescott and numerous injuries across the offensive line. With Dak returning to the field along with Zach Martin, Tyron Smith, and La'el Collins, look for the offense to push the ball downfield more and be far more efficient than in 2020.

Cooper may not be in consideration as a WR1 this season like in years past, but he is a high-end No.2 WR who has the ability to put up monster games. If you go RB-RB in your first two picks, Cooper is a solid option in the third or fourth round.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Amari Cooper expected to play Thursday night
Sat out Weeks 11 & 12
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 1, 12:34 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Source: #Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper is expected to travel with the team to New Orleans today and play against the #Saints tomorrow night. Cooper, who is unvaccinated, tested positive for Covid and has missed last two games, both Cowboys losses. (Ed Werder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Cooper has missed the last two games after being placed on the Covid-19 list. The Saints have given up the 5th most fantasy points to wide receivers this season including four 100-yard receiving games giving Cooper some WR2 value in Week 13.


Amari Cooper (COVID) now non-committal for Week 13
Veteran WR still symptomatic, up in the air for matchup with Saints
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Nov 30, 11:45 am

Dallas Cowboys
Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) on Twitter: "Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19) is back in building but "still not feeling the best," coach Mike McCarthy said. Still has a cough. "To be determined" whether he'll practice today. "My gut would be if he doesn't practice tomorrow, I don't see him going to the game." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: That was a quick change of direction. Earlier in the morning, Jerry Jones indicated Cooper should play, but the news that he's still symptomatic puts him in doubt of playing. Michael Gallup would get a bump, and Dak Prescott would take a hit if Cooper can't play.


Injury Jerry Jones expects Amari Cooper to play Thursday
Cowboys WR missed Week 12 due to Covid protocols
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 30, 9:51 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on WR Amari Cooper (COVID-19): “We’re fully expecting him to be ready by game time” Thursday at Saints, he said on @1053thefan. Cooper missed two games. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Head coach, err... team owner Jerry Jones seems to think Cooper will be ready to face the Saints in Week 12. Cooper didn't practice with the team on Monday. He'll be a WR2 against the Saints if he's able to get cleared and his presence will put a cap on the ceiling of Michael Gallup.


Injury CeeDee Lamb out for Week 12 with concussion
Couldn't clear protocol in time
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Nov 25, 11:20 am

Dallas Cowboys
#Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out today against the #Raiders, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL. Amari Cooper also out with COVID, leaving Dak Prescott without his top two receivers. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: On the short week, it was going to be tough for Lamb to clear the concussion protocol. In the end, he will miss Week 12 which leaves Dallas thin at receiver. Expect Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Noah Brown to be the top wideouts. TE Dalton Schultz should be a primary option for Dak against the Raiders.


Injury CeeDee Lamb in limbo for Week 12
Suffered concussion in Week 11 loss to KC
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 22, 11:30 pm

Dallas Cowboys
CeeDee Lamb left Week 11 in the second quarter with a concussion and did not return, leaving him unlikely to clear the league protocol in time to play on Thanksgiving Day against the Las Vegas Raiders. (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)

FFToday's Take: Dallas already knows it will be without Amari Cooper after his positive COVID test last week. Lamb did participate in team meetings on Monday, so there is at least some hope he can be cleared in time, although it is rare that a player can clear the league's concussion protocol four days after landing on it. As it stands now, Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz figure to be the team's top available pass-catchers against Las Vegas.


Amari Cooper lands on Covid-19 list, Out for Week 11
Could miss Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 19, 3:49 pm

The #Cowboys have placed star WR Amari Cooper on the COVID-19 list, knocking him out Sunday and putting his availability for Thursday in doubt as well. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The NFL's Covid protocols strike again. With Cooper out, we could see more targets for Michael Gallup and TE Dalton Schultz. Cedrick Wilson is also likely to see increased playing time against the Chiefs. Gallup moves into WR2 territory in the highest total (56.5) game of the week.


Injury Amari Cooper dealing with bruised ribs
Initially hurt in Week 1, aggravated in Week 2
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 20, 11:00 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Mike McCarthy says Amari Cooper has bruised ribs and they’ll know more Wednesday. (105.3 The Fan - Josh Clark)

FFToday's Take: It helps to explain Cooper's disappointing Week 2 performance, but it brings into question why he wasn't listed on the injury report at any point last week. Expect Cooper to be limited in practice all week, although it would be a surprise if doesn't go versus the Eagles on Monday night. CeeDee Lamb would obviously be in line for a target bump if he sits. Cedrick Wilson would also be worthy of starting consideration in deeper leagues as well.
