Eagles | Riley Cooper hurts thumb

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 20:02:31 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (thumb) exited a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 22, with a thumb injury. X-rays were negative, but he did not return.

Fantasy Tip: With Nelson Agholor coming on strong, Cooper probably won't have a big role this season. At best, he is a late-round option.

Eagles | Riley Cooper still eager to play

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 13:55:51 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper knows he needs to compete to stay a starter. "I'm still extremely hungry. I'm not complacent. I'm not content, by any means," Cooper said. "I think that's how you have to approach the game every single year. They're trying to bring someone in to take your job. I know that. I'm going to do everything I can for that not to happen."

Fantasy Tip: Cooper is technically still a starter, but at least Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff could eventually surpass him. Jordan Matthews is already the Eagles' No. 1 receiver. Cooper does have his work cut out for him if he wants to maintain starting status. Agholor and Huff are more promising from a fantasy perspective, though. Cooper should only be drafted for depth.

Eagles | Josh Huff working with starters

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 07:13:55 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Josh Huff has been working with the starting unit with WR Riley Cooper opposite of him. WR Nelson Agholor could eventually take snaps away from Huff and/or Cooper eventually, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff McLane.

Fantasy Tip: It's a fluid situation worth monitoring throughout camp. Huff is a WR5 flyer for now, but Agholor appears to be gaining steam and is on the cusp of WR4 territory. Cooper is a WR4, but he has very minimal upside.

Eagles | Riley Cooper may not start in 2015

Sun, 10 May 2015 23:22:48 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper may not have a starting job this season with the drafting of WR Nelson Agholor.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper caught just 577 yards of passes in 2014, and that number figures to go down in 2015 if Agholor catches on. Cooper's fantasy value is declining in Philadelphia.

Eagles | Riley Cooper active in red zone

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 17:16:45 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper had five catches for 53 yards, including touchdown catches of three and 16 yards, in a 27-24 loss to the Washington Redskins Saturday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper had just a single touchdown catch coming into the game, and at best, he is the No. 3 option in the team's passing attack.

Eagles | Riley Cooper underwhelming so far

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 16:07:56 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper leads all wide receivers in routes run, according to Cecil Lammey of ESPN Denver, but has totaled just nine catches for 71 yards.

Fantasy Tip: It's been all Jeremy Maclin as far as Eagles' wide receivers are concerned. The bright side is that Cooper is getting a ton of playing time, which is bound to increase his production eventually.

Eagles | Riley Cooper's role decreasing?

Sat, 20 Sep 2014 18:41:23 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper has five catches for 37 yards and no scores in two games this season despite Chip Kelly's offense creating one-on-one opportunities on the outside by drawing the safeties toward the middle of the field.

Fantasy Tip: While Cooper has been nonexistent, Jeremy Maclin has 21 targets in two games and has scored a touchdown in both. Maclin appears to have stepped into the role occupied by DeSean Jackson last year, and with a $6,200 salary (12.4% of cap) at FantasyScore, Maclin offers plenty of upside in Week 3 against a Washington defense that has yet to be tested by a legit passing attack.

Eagles | Riley Cooper probable for Week 1

Fri, 05 Sep 2014 11:33:10 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 5, and is probable for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: With a FantasyScore price of $4,900 (9.80% of cap), Cooper is a nice flex option with a good matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
