Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught three of his five targets for 24 yards in a 20-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.
Huddle Up: Cooper followed up a monster performance in Week 1 with a dud against the Chargers. Expect more good than bad out of one of the top targets in the Dallas passing attack.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper tallied 13 receptions (on 16 targets) for 139 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: There was a lot of preseason buzz surrounding CeeDee Lamb, but on Thursday night it was Cooper that sat atop the food chain, comfortably leading the team in receptions and yardage despite being targeted just once more than Lamb. While the Cowboys are unlikely to have too many games that feature 58 passing attempts versus just 18 runs, Cooper remains the safest option among Dallas' receivers. Depending on the matchup he should offer value as a WR1 or WR2.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) passed his physical Tuesday, Aug. 10, and was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Cooper's numbers really took a hit after Dak Prescott went down last year. His first two months saw him catch 53 balls for 583 yards and two touchdowns as opposed to 33 grabs for 490 yards and three scores in Nov/Dec. He's a WR1 with something to prove with Prescott coming back.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) told Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News that his ankle is 'close to 100 percent' Tuesday, Aug. 3.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) came into training camp in great shape, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'Everything's been extremely positive from the strength staff,' McCarthy said. 'His weight is as low as it's been since I've worked with him, so he looks great.'
Huddle Up: Cooper is expected to be recovered from an ankle injury in time for the start of the season, and with Dak Prescott back under center, he should be in line for another steady campaign as a main target in a potent pass attack. Consider Cooper a WR2.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2021 regular season.
Huddle Up: Cooper is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list but should return to practice before the end the preseason. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game and should be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is being placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open training camp, according to a source Thursday, July 22.
Huddle Up: Nothing unexpected and nothing that should keep Cooper out for much of camp. He remains a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 fantasy draft consideration.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) could miss the start of training camp due to irritation in his right ankle and may begin on the physically unable to perform list, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network Wednesday, June 9.
Huddle Up: According to Rapoport, it doesn't seem as though Cooper is at risk of missing much meaningful time, but it could put him behind WRs CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup to begin the season, especially with QB Dak Prescott working his way back from injury. Cooper's still a WR1 for now, but this situation will need to be monitored.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason because the team could save around $14 million in salary cap space if they rework the deal.
Huddle Up: Cooper has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of the last two seasons and will continue to be one of the main options in the passing game for the Cowboys. He likely will have Dak Prescott back next season and will be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) recently underwent ankle surgery that was termed 'a cleanup,' according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer, who added that Cooper will not require a long rehab.
Huddle Up: Cooper was listed on the injury report with an ankle issue a few times throughout the season, so the surgery should theoretically make this a non-issue heading into next season. The 26-year-old finished 2020 with a career-high 92 catches despite being on the opposite end of a lot of uncertainty at the quarterback position. Assuming Dak Prescott returns to full health in 2021 and doesn't miss significant time again, Cooper has a realistic shot at moving into the elite group of fantasy receivers.
