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.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper hauled in four of his six targets for 121 yards in Week 16 versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cooper did most of his damage on a 69-yard grab in the third quarter. It's been a trying season for the team's top wideout since Dak Prescott got hurt, but he's the Dallas receiver that has done the best job of maintaining his fantasy value. Cooper will have his hands full trying to be anything more than a WR3 in Week 17 against the New York Giants as he figures to draw the coverage of stud corner James Bradberry quite often.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper managed only two catches on three targets for 10 yards in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He also lost seven yards on two carries.
Huddle Up: Despite scoring 41 points, Dallas' offense lost the total yardage battle 458-291. The passing game wasn't able to get much going, which led to CeeDee Lamb being about the only Dallas receiver that did much of anything. Cooper had been able to remain relevant in fantasy for the most part since Dak Prescott's injury, at least until this contest. There's a decent chance he'll rebound in Week 16, however, as he gets to face the injury-riddled secondary of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught four passes for 51 yards and one touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. He was targeted five times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cooper has caught a touchdown in each of the last three games and has been targeted at least five times in all but one game this season. He should be a weekly starting option in all leagues as long as he is healthy.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught five of his nine targets for 43 yards and a touchdown in a 34-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Cooper salvaged one of his lower yardarge outputs of the year with a trip to the end zone. Despite all the issues with Dallas overall, Cooper has remained a relatively consistent performer. He's a low-end WR2.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his eight targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 41-16 loss to the Washington Football Team in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Cooper continues to be a bright spot for the Cowboys. He topped 60 receiving yards for the ninth times in 11 games, and he has had at least 79 yards in eight of those contests. He's a low-end WR2.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper registered six receptions for a team-high 81 yards on seven targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: Cooper was likely very glad to see Andy Dalton, an NFL-caliber quarterback, under center again in Big D. He didn't get into the end zone for the fourth straight game, but his yardage total was his highest since Week 4 against Cleveland.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper pulled in five of his six targets for 67 yards in Week 9 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. He also ran once for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Cooper is more of a low-end WR2 at best since Dak Prescott was lost for the season. While Garrett Gilbert and Andy Dalton are a step down from Prescott, they appear capable of making Cooper worth a start in fantasy. Dalton should be back from his concussion following the Cowboys' Week 10 bye, and Cooper has a decent shot at being a top-20 receiver in Week 11 against the weak secondary of the Minnesota Vikings.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught one pass for five yards during the team's Week 8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted five times.
Huddle Up: For whatever reason, Michael Gallup was the apple of DiNucci's eye on Sunday night while Cooper was mostly ignored. While his value has dipped since the injury to Dak Prescott don't read too much into things here as Andy Dalton is expected to return in Week 9. That should be enough to return Cooper to WR2 status next Sunday.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught seven passes for 80 yards against the Washington Football Team in Week 7. He was targeted seven times during the game.
Huddle Up: Cooper was basically the passing game for Dallas this week since the team only had 114 passing yards during the game. Fantasy players will need to monitor the team's quarterback situation because Cooper's value will take a hit if Bee DiNucci starts. He can still be a starting option next week, but fantasy players may want to lower expectations.
