    Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper scores big against Washington

    Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper caught two passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington. In an unexpected turn of events, Cooper led the Eagles in receiving Sunday. He caught Sam Bradford's longest throw of the season, a 62-yard bomb of a touchdown, in the third quarter.Cooper, long viewed to be an afterthought in the Eagles' passing game, has proved surprisingly relevant through four weeks. He's only picked up five catches for 97 yards and one touchdown so far, but for owners in need of deep wide receiver options, Cooper has looked more useful than early returns suggested.

    Riley Cooper steps up with other WRs quiet

    For as productive as Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews have been in the second half of the season, neither seemed to be a big target for quarterback Mark Sanchez in Week 16 at Washington. Tight end Zach Ertz got all the targets for the Eagles, but wide receiver Riley Cooper scored the touchdowns, hauling in a 3-yard slant late in the second quarter and making a leaping 16-yard grab early in the fourth. He finished with five catches for 53 yards. Cooper entered the game with just one touchdown all season, and he hadn't topped 50 yards since Week 8 at Arizona. Matthews, a rookie, had seemingly overtaken him in the pecking order, but now Matthews has averaged just 33.0 receiving yards in his last four games. The bigger upset for Cooper in Week 16 was outperforming Maclin, who had four catches for 62 yards. Maclin had only one fewer target than Cooper, though, and still finished with more yardage, so you have little reason to believe Cooper is now the preferred option. He and Matthews may be 2A and 2B, though, which makes both hard to trust Week 17 at the Giants.

    Eagles' Jeremy Maclin leads team with 98 receiving yards Week 15

    Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin caught four of his five targets for a team-high 98 yards in his team's 38-27 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15. Maclin's highlight came courtesy of a bad decision by his defender, who went for an interception despite having no help behind him. Maclin hauled in the catch and then followed a teammate blocking the one defender remaining between him and the goal line but was dragged down at the one-yard line on the 72-yard play. Tight end Brent Celek racked up 52 yards while catching four of his six targets. Rookie Josh Huff received just one target but hauled it in across the middle and weaved his way toward the sideline for a 44-yard gain. Tight end Zach Ertz contributed three catches for 32 yards, while wide receiver Riley Cooper managed 17 yards on two receptions. Rookie Jordan Matthews recorded just one target but didn't catch it. The Eagles will look to rebound against the Redskins in Week 16.
