Who is Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper’s resume was as sparkling as one a receiver could generate in college. It paid off quickly. He declared for the 2015 NFL Draft, where the then Oakland Raiders selected him in the first round with their fourth overall selection. He provided glimpses of brilliance, but his Raiders tenure was rife with inconsistency. He went for at least 1,070 yards in each of his first two seasons, but just 680 in 2017 and 280 yards through the first six games of 2018. After another slow start and the Raiders going nowhere, the Cowboys gave him a fresh start, trading a first-round pick to acquire his services. He’s been exactly what the Cowboys could’ve hoped for. He finished 2018 with 725 yards in nine games, and hauled in at least 79 receptions and 1,110 yards in the two following seasons. Cooper's two full seasons as a Dallas Cowboy saw him end the year as the WR10 and the WR16 in fantasy football.

Cooper was on pace for another strong season in 2021. He began the season with a bang, but his inconsistent tendencies followed him. He played 14 games in 2021; only six of them saw him bring in at least five receptions. Granted, the entire Cowboys’ offense fluttered up and down, but his inconsistent reputation reared its head again, which affected his seasonal output. He finished the 2021 season with 865 yards, the lowest since his last full season as a Raider. His six drops were the 22nd most from wide receivers. He finished in the top 20 in deep targets and red zone targets, but outside the top 30 in numerous stats; including an 18.8-percent target share (No. 43), 11.5 (No. 32) Average Target Distance, 196 (No. 52) Yards After Catch, 8.4 (No. 41) Yards Per Target, and 1.90 (No. 38) Yards Per Route Run. Ultimately, Cooper winded up as the WR28 in fantasy in 2021, a far cry from his normal finishes or his WR15 ADP heading into the year. He has cemented himself as a legitimate starting wide receiver, but that may not be good enough for what the Cowboys are paying. He signed a five-year extension that pays him $20 million per year in 2021, but that contract has an out for the Cowboys in 2022. The Cowboys were on the verge of taking that out in Cooper's contract, but were able to squeeze additional value out of Cooper before parting ways. Instead of waiving Cooper, they traded him to the Cleveland Browns in a deal that netted them a fifth round pick. Cooper will eventually be catching passes from Deshaun Watson once the NFL finishes their investigation of Watson regarding allegations of sexual assault. From a fantasy perspective, Cooper will be a hot commodity again, even with his history of inconsistent weekly production.
