2019 NFL Draft Guide Player Profile: Amari Cooper
Colby Conway takes an in-depth look at Amari Cooper and lets fantasy football owners know what to expect during the 2019 NFL season.
In his first two professional seasons, Amari Cooper made the Pro Bowl and notched 1,000 receiving yards. Then, 2017 happened, where he caught just half of his targets (48-of-96) for a measly 680 yards, but did manage to set a single season best of seven touchdowns. After a handful of unproductive weeks with the Oakland Raiders to begin the 2018 season (22 receptions for 280 yards and one touchdown across six games) led to him being traded to America’s team in exchange for a first round draft pick. After all of the criticism, Cooper flashed the WR1 brilliance that he displayed in some good seasons with Derek Carr out west. Was it the change of scenery? Was it the number change? There were a lot of factors that went into the reemergence of Cooper in Dallas, but fantasy owners are here for it nonetheless.
From the naked eye, it was no surprise that Cooper was better in Dallas than he was in Oakland in 2018. Check it yourself.
