Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper had 15 receptions on targets of 20-plus yards downfield in 2019, which tied for second in the league among pass-catchers.
Huddle Up: Cooper's deep-threat role could become even more cemented this season with the addition of CeeDee Lamb, who is expected to work more underneath. Translation: Cooper may not have as many receptions but a higher percentage should be big plays, keeping his low-end WR1 stock locked in.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper could play more from the slot with the Cowboys drafting WR CeeDee Lamb in the first round Thursday, April 23, according to one NFL personnel analyst.
Huddle Up: Cooper hit career highs with 1,189 yards and eight TDs on 119 targets and 79 receptions in 2019, and while his efficiency might go up with the addition of Lamb -- who can also play in the slot -- it's hard to imagine his volume increasing with another prime target joining him and fellow wideout Michael Gallup. Cooper remains a low-end WR1 who now possesses a lower floor.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's five-year, $100 million contract extension includes a signing bonus of $10 million with fully guaranteed salaries of $10 million in 2020 and $20 million in 2021. His 2022 salary of $20 million is guaranteed for injury, but there is a potential out following the 2022 season with only $6 million in dead money.
Huddle Up: Cooper, who'll turn 26 years old this summer, should have more than three productive seasons left in him. He'll remain a mid-tier WR1 for the foreseeable future in all formats, including dynasty leagues.

Free-agent WR Amari Cooper intends to re-sign a five-year, $100 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys, league sources said Monday, March 16.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys are figuring out a way to keep the band together. He jelled nicely with QB Dak Prescott in his first full season in Dallas, posting 79 receptions (on 119 targets) for career bests of 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns. He also played in all 16 games for the third time in his five-year career.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper could receive interest from the Denver Broncos if he hits the free-agent market, in the opinion of Denver7's Troy Renck.
Huddle Up: The Broncos will be looking to add a starting receiver this offseason but likely would have a lot of competition if Cooper is available in free agency. Cooper will be a focal point in the passing game wherever he signs and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

The Dallas Cowboys have met with the agent of WR Amari Cooper twice since the end of the NFL scouting combine regarding a contract extension, according to a source, although financial proposals are not known.
Huddle Up: Cooper and the Cowboys are in a holding pattern because a potential collective bargaining agreement could be finalized soon but he is expected to seek one of the most lucrative contracts for a wide receiver. He will turn 26 years old in June, meaning he is about to enter the prime of his career, and should be a WR1 candidate in all fantasy formats next season.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper, a pending free agent, reiterated Thursday, March 5, that he is hoping to sign a long-term deal with the team. 'I love being a Dallas Cowboy,' Cooper said Thursday on 105.3 The Fan. 'I think about it almost every day. Just the aura of being a Dallas Cowboy, you can't beat it. I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for life.'
Huddle Up: Cooper finished seventh among fantasy wideouts with 167.5 total points last season and has scored 14 TDs in 25 career games with the Cowboys, averaging 5.3 receptions and 76.6 receiving yards per contest. With Cooper turning 26 in June, he's just entering his prime, and he remains a no-doubt WR1, especially if he remains in Dallas.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper is being recruited by fellow University of Alabama alumni who currently play for the Washington Redskins, according to John Keim of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Although the smart money remains on Cooper remaining with the Cowboys, he figures be the No. 1 option wherever he signs. That being said, he would likely slip into the WR2 tier for fantasy purposes if he lands in Washington and trades Dak Prescott for Dwayne Haskins.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper is expected to see contract talks with the Cowboys intensify in the near future, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys plan to use the franchise tag on Dak Prescott, so Cooper is on track to hit the free-agent market if the two sides are not able to reach an agreement. He will be a starting receiver no matter where he plays in 2020 and is at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
