Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has averaged 8.2 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 102.3 with WR Amari Cooper on the field compared to averages of 7.0 yards per attempt and a passer rating of 89.5 with Cooper off the field.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys still need to work out contracts with Prescott and Cooper, but both players are expected to be back, either on long-term deals or via the franchise and transition tags. Assuming the duo stays put, Prescott will enter 2020 as a midrange QB1 while Cooper will be a WR1 candidate.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper, a pending free agent, could wind up with the Philadelphia Eagles if he isn't re-signed by the Cowboys, in the opinion of NFL Network analyst David Carr.
Huddle Up: Cooper finished as fantasy's No. 7 wideout last season and has ranked among the league's elite since arriving in Dallas via trade midway through the 2018 season. That said, it's tough to imagine the Cowboys failing to retain Cooper, but Jerry Jones & Co. have a number of other financial decisions to make as well, including a potential new contract for QB Dak Prescott, so this situation definitely bears watching.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said Thursday, Jan. 23, he hasn't had recent talks with his agent about his expiring contract, but said he wants to remain in Dallas a long time.
Huddle Up: Cooper is coming off a career year with 1,189 yards and eight TD catches on 79 receptions, and he's expected to re-up with the Cowboys before he has a chance to hit the open market this March. Regardless, he'll be in the WR1 mix heading into 2020.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said he loves playing with QB Dak Prescott and wants to remain with the team going forward. 'That is part of me liking it,' Cooper said. 'My situation on the team, him being the quarterback, the teammates, where I live. Everything.'
Huddle Up: Cooper has sputtered a bit down the stretch, failing to reach 40 yards in four of the last six games. Still, he has a golden opportunity to end the regular season on a high note when he faces Washington in Week 17, and assuming he remains with Dallas in 2020, he has proven he can be a WR2 with WR1 upside

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught four of his 12 targets for 24 yards in a 17-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.
Huddle Up: After topping 100 yards against Philadelphia the first time around, Cooper seemed lost all afternoon. On the plus side, he has a good chance to close out the season on a high note against Washington.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper faces the Philadelphia Eagles on the road in Week 16, and Cooper has 48 catches for 777 yards and five touchdowns in seven home games this year compared to 23 catches for 296 yards and three touchdowns in seven road contests.
Huddle Up: Cooper had five catches for 106 yards against Philadelphia back in Week 7, but that game was in Dallas. His road splits aren't comforting, but you have to start him against the struggling secondary of the Eagles with a division title on the line.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper had one reception for 19 yards during a Week 15 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: It was another disappearing act from Cooper, who has failed to top 40 yards receiving in three of his last five outings. This one had more to do with how the game unfolded, though, as the Rams simply couldn't stop Dallas' ground and pound, which rendered the passing game largely unnecessary. Cooper will be looking for more in Week 16 against an Eagles team he torched for 106 yards back in Week 7.
