He's off Week 7 before visiting Arizona on Oct. 26.
Both Matthews and Cooper have had their moments of glory, with Cooper getting his in Week 5, with his first touchdown of the season. Matthews had had his in Week 3, when he hauled in two scores of his own. However, neither player has topped 4 Fantasy points in a game outside of their scoring efforts.
If you want to roll the dice on Nick Foles finding his way and the Eagles turning into a top-flight passing game once again, knock yourself out. For now, if he isn't named Jeremy Maclin, you probably don't want to rely on any Eagles receivers.
Cooper won a jump ball on his score, putting the team up 20-7 with just 30 seconds left in the first half on the nine-yard play. It was his first touchdown of the year, but he saw himself out-targeted by emerging rookie Jordan Matthews. Cooper has managed just 158 yards on 19 receptions in five games. The Eagles host the Giants in Week 6.
Cooper had a chance at a possible game-winning touchdown catch Week 4 against the 49ers, but couldn't come up with the ball. He expressed some frustration with himself following the drop. "There’s no excuse," Cooper said. "Nick threw a perfect ball. Everything on his end was perfect." Cooper went on to say that the play needs to be made "10 out of 10 times." Cooper's only other drop this season would have also resulted in a score.
Despite the struggles, Cooper said he believes the team's offense has played well lately. "I feel like if everyone is doing their job and doing it to the best of their ability, I feel like this offense cannot be stopped."
Cooper has dropped two passes in four games that could have been touchdowns had he secured the ball. "No doubt, I have to catch both of those passes," he told the team website after Thursday practice. "Both throws were right on the money. Nick (Foles) put the ball there and I have to make the plays.
"I'm going to click. I'm confident of that. We're all working hard to get on the same page and get our offense going. ... I feel like this offense is unstoppable. If everyone is doing his job, I feel like this offense can't be stopped schematically."
Cooper snagged six passes for 54 yards in Week 4 and has 15 catches for 125 yards on the season. His YPC is down from 17.8 in 2013 to a mere 8.3 this year. He scored eight touchdowns last season to none in 2014.
