Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (heel) is dealing with a heel muscle strain but could play at some point during the preseason.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys likely are taking things slow with Cooper since he does not need a lot of playing time in the preseason. Fantasy players can monitor the situation, but Cooper likely will be a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Aug. 13, he's willing to continue contract negotiations with QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott and WR Amari Cooper in the regular season.
Huddle Up: This is least promising for Elliott, who has said he won't play this season without a new deal. With Jerry apparently willing to play hardball, drafting the elite running back won't be for the faint of heart.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (heel) is dealing with plantar fascia irritation, according to a source who adds 'he'll be fine.'
Huddle Up: Cooper isn't yet expected to miss any regular-season action, but it would be nice to see him get back on the practice field ahead of time. The fringe WR1 needs to be watched closely.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (heel) has missed six consecutive practices with a a heel injury as of Tuesday, Aug. 13, but the team does not believe it will be a long-term injury.
Huddle Up: The issue is growing concerning, but there are still three weeks to to before the regular season kicks off. Regard Cooper as a low-end WR1.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (heel) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 8, and has missed the last five practices.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys can be cautious with Cooper, so he could miss more practices because of the injury. He played very well after joining the Cowboys last season and will be the main option in the passing game again this season. He should be a solid No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: Cooper wasted no time becoming the go-to weapon in the passing game after coming aboard last year, and he should be a solid WR1 in his first full season with Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (heel) sat out practice Tuesday, Aug. 6, due to a bruised heel.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper says he's not a top-five NFL receiver -- at the moment. 'It's something I think I can prove this year, not sure if I've proved it yet, but I plan on doing it this year,' Cooper told USA Today Sports' Trysta Krick. 'I think I definitely have the mentality and skill set to be a top-five receiver, that's no doubt. But have I proven it? I don't know. I really want to set out and prove it.'
Huddle Up: Cooper averaged 5.9 receptions and 80.6 yards and scored six TDs in his nine games with the Cowboys last season, and while he's not expected to be a top-five wideout in fantasy, he is a borderline WR1.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper told reporters Monday, June 24, he isn't thinking about his expiring contract but stated,' I do want to be a Dallas Cowboy for a long time.'
Huddle Up: Cooper also said in a recent interview with Pro Football Talk his goal for 2019 is 2,000 receiving yards - which would be an NFL record. It's obviously an unrealistic goal, as the 25-year-old would have finished with just under 1,300 yards receiving if his nine-game totals with Dallas were extrapolated over a 16-game season. The good news for fantasy owners is he was also on a 94-catch and 10-touchdown pace with the Cowboys. If he can come close to those marks this season, he'll be a solid WR1.
