Player Outlook
Cooper should once again be the best receiver for the Browns, and we'll see if he can be among the best Fantasy receivers as well. We view him as a high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver this season, and he's worth drafting as early as Round 5 in all leagues. In 2023, Cooper set a career-high with 1,250 yards, and he also added 72 receptions and five touchdowns on 128 targets in 15 games. He did this despite playing with four different quarterbacks in Deshaun Watson, Joe Flacco, Dorian Thompson-Robinson and P.J. Walker. Watson (shoulder) will return as the starter this season, and that's good news for Cooper. But he also turns 30 in June, and the Browns added Jerry Jeudy this offseason to go with Cooper, Elijah Moore and David Njoku. There's a lot to like about Cooper at the right price, but don't reach for him on Draft Day just because of his history. He's entering the point in his career where he could start to see a downturn in production.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Misses final day of minicamp

    Cooper didn't report to June minicamp, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. With his absence confirmed for a third straight day, Cooper can be fined slightly more than $100,000. He's in the final year of his contract and looking for a new deal, following a 2023 season in which he had career highs for receiving yards (1,250) and yards per catch (17.4) despite missing two games and playing with four different quarterbacks. He struggled to produce with PJ Walker and especially Dorian Thompson-Robinson, but Cooper reached 90 yards in four of Deshaun Watson's six starts and averaged 121.3 yards in the four games he played with Joe Flacco. Cooper will turn 30 next week and remains crucial to the Cleveland offense even after an offseason trade for Jerry Jeudy.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Appears to be holding out

    Cooper isn't present Tuesday for the start of mandatory minicamp, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cooper is in the final year of his contract and presumably wants an extension. The Browns can fine him while he's absent, and it's possible this stretches into training camp if the wideout doesn't have a new contract by late July. Cooper had career highs for receiving yards (1,250) and yards per catch (17.4) last season, buoyed by a 25-485-3 receiving line in the four games he played with Joe Flacco as Cleveland's starting QB. Cooper also did well with Deshaun Watson, reaching 90 yards in four of the six full games Watson played, whereas Cleveland's other main pass catchers -- namely TE David Njoku and WR Elijah Moore -- struggled to get anything going with the supposed franchise QB. The Browns added Jerry Jeudy this offseason, likely pushing Moore back to the No. 3 role and giving Cooper more competition for targets.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Quiet in postseason loss

    Cooper recorded four receptions on five targets for 59 yards in Saturday's 45-14 loss to the Texans. Cooper missed the final two games of the regular season with a heel injury, but he managed to retake the field for the wild-card round matchup. He wasn't particularly impactful, finishing third on the team in yards and fourth in receptions. While it was something of a sour ending to the season for Cooper, he posted a career-best 1,250 yards receiving yards in the regular season and has surpassed 1,000 yards in four of his last five campaigns.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Cleared for playoff opener

    Cooper (heel/rest) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Saturday's wild-card game against the Texans, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. After being deemed a non-participant both Tuesday and Wednesday, the wideout returned to a full practice Thursday, which sets stage for him to return to the lineup following a two-game absence. During his last outing, Cooper caught 11 of his 15 targets for 265 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 16 win over the Texans. Looking ahead to this weekend's postseason opener, the Browns' top wide receiver is poised to reclaim his status as a top target for quarterback Joe Flacco.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Back at practice Thursday

    Cooper (heel/rest) returned to practice Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Cooper was listed as a non-participant both Tuesday and Wednesday, but the wideout's presence for practice Thursday aligns with his expectation of being available for Saturday's playoff opener against the Texans. The Browns' final injury report will be released later Thursday and clarify whether Cooper carries an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Not practicing, but should play

    Cooper (heel/rest) isn't practicing Wednesday, but he said he'll be ready to go for Saturday's game in Houston, Chris Easterling of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Cooper missed the final two games of the regular season, including a Week 18 contest that had no potential to impact to the Browns' playoff seeding. He didn't practice Tuesday or Wednesday, but the addition of 'rest' to his injury classification on the Browns' practice report for the wild-card round suggests Cooper is expected to play this Saturday. He said he could have played in the Week 18 loss to the Bengals if needed, per Jake Trotter of ESPN.com.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Not practicing Tuesday

    Cooper (heel/rest) won't practice Tuesday, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. The fact that the Browns are attributing Cooper's absence from practice in part due to rest offers hope that his heel injury won't prevent him from playing in this Saturday's wild-card game in Houston. After producing a career-best stat line of 11 catches for 265 yards and two touchdowns on 15 targets in the Browns' Week 16 win over the Texans, Cooper missed the final two regular-season contests with the injury.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Won't play Sunday

    Cooper (heel) has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bengals, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Considering that the Browns are locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, it's no surprise that the veteran wideout will be held out of the Week 18 contest while he continues to nurse the heel injury. Cooper will thus target a potential return to action in the team's postseason opener in the wild-card round next week. In his absence this weekend, look for Cleveland's depth receivers to see added snaps, with fellow starter Elijah Moore (concussion) listed as questionable and also profiling as a candidate to be rested by the team.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Still not practicing

    Cooper (heel) remained sidelined at practice Friday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cooper didn't practice Wednesday and Thursday, and with the Browns locked in as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, the wideout is a candidate to be rested Week 18, in any case. The team's upcoming injury report will be released later Friday and will clarify whether Cooper carries a designation into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Misses another practice

    Cooper (heel) remained sidelined at practice Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Cooper -- who was inactive for last Thursday's win over the Jets -- also missed practiced Wednesday, so the veteran wideout now has one more chance to get some work in ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bengals. In any case, with the Browns locked in as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs, Cooper is a candidate to be rested by the the team in Week 18.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Not practicing Wednesday

    Cooper (heel) won't take part in practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cooper has yet to practice since going off for a franchise-record 265 receiving yards to go with two touchdowns on 11 catches (15 targets) during a Week 16 win at Houston. Prior to sitting out last Thursday's win over the Jets, he went through a pregame workout but ultimately didn't feel right. Kicking off Week 18 prep with a absence from practice isn't exactly a great sign for his odds to suit up Sunday at Cincinnati, and with head coach Kevin Stefanski already ruling out a healthy Joe Flacco for Sunday's game at Cincinnati, there's a chance the rest of the offensive regulars like Cooper that are banged up may join the quarterback on the sideline this weekend.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Won't play Thursday

    Cooper (heel) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Jets. As the contest approached on a short week, Cooper was listed as a non-participant during Tuesday's practice as well as estimated sessions both Monday and Wednesday. With the Browns' top pass catcher slated to miss his first game of the season, Elijah Moore and Cedric Tillman are on track to lead the team's WR corps Week 17, while top TE David Njoku should remain a key target for QB Joe Flacco.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Should be available Thursday

    Cooper (heel) should be able to play Thursday night against the Jets, barring any setbacks in warmups, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Cooper approaches the contest officially listed as questionable, but it appears as though he's trending toward being available versus New York. Official confirmation of his Week 17 status will arrive once the Browns' inactives are posted ahead of Thursday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Hopeful to play Thursday

    Cooper (heel), who is officially listed as questionable, is "hopeful" to suit up Thursday versus the Jets, but his status isn't yet certain, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The Browns' only actual practice during shortened Week 17 prep was Tuesday, when Cooper sat out due to the heel injury. He was also listed as a non-participant during estimated sessions Monday and Wednesday. The star wideout set a new franchise record with 265 receiving yards during Sunday's win over the Texans, but now even if Cooper does manage to suit up and play through his heel injury, he faces a more difficult matchup this week against Sauce Gardner and the Jets secondary. A final word on Cooper's availability may come down to the wire, but Cleveland will officially confirm his status no later than 90 minutes prior to Thursday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, when the team releases its inactive list.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Questionable for Thursday night

    Cooper is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Jets with a heel injury, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cooper was listed as a non-participant in practice during the week due to a combination of rest and a heel injury. He earned the time off after setting a franchise record with 265 receiving yards in this past Sunday's 36-22 win over the Texans. Cooper has been no stranger to playing through injuries in the past, so it would be surprising if he ended up sitting out Thursday, though official word on his status won't arrive until the Browns release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to the game's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff. If Cooper is able to play this week, he may have a tougher time getting open; the Jets' 1,583 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns allowed to wide receivers are both the fewest in the NFL.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Sets franchise record

    Cooper caught 11 of 15 targets for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-22 win over the Texans. He also caught a two-point conversion. The 265 receiving yards set a new franchise record for the Browns, surpassing Josh Gordon's mark of 261 yards from 2013. Cooper has become one of the hottest wideouts in the NFL since Joe Flacco was installed as the team's new quarterback, and over the last three games the 29-year-old receiver has hauled in 22 of 37 targets for 451 yards and three TDs. The chemistry between Cooper and Flacco will face a tougher test in Week 17 against the Jets.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Targeted 14 times

    Cooper recorded seven receptions on 14 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's 31-27 win over the Jaguars. He also lost a fumble. Cooper was targeted a season-high 14 times, marking his third game of the campaign with double-digit opportunities. He took advantage with his highest yardage total since Week 10, primarily on receptions in the short and intermediate areas of the field. While his stat line was positive overall, Cooper did lose a fumble midway through the second quarter that led directly to a Jacksonville touchdown. He should continue to see plenty of volume with Joe Flacco under center, though Cooper will see a suddenly stout Chicago defense in Week 15.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Cleared for Sunday's contest

    Cooper (concussion/ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Cooper headed into Sunday with a questionable designation after he managed just one limited practice this week due to his two injuries, but his status for the Week 14 contest was mostly cleared up Saturday, when he was confirmed to have cleared the five-step concussion protocol. Despite his light practice activity this week, Cooper isn't expected to face any major restrictions with his snap count Sunday. Though the Browns haven't formally named a Week 14 starting quarterback, Cooper is expected to be on the receiving end of passes from Joe Flacco, who appears in line for a second consecutive start even though rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson has cleared concussion protocol.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Ready to play Sunday

    Cooper (ribs) cleared concussion protocol Saturday and is in line to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Cooper, whom the Browns listed as questionable for Sunday's contest, was a limited participant in Friday's practice. Though he didn't practice fully at any point this week, he was apparently able to bypass a return to full-contact work and gained clearance from an independent neurologist -- the final state of the five-step concussion protocol. The Browns also predictably elevated Joe Flacco to the active roster, and while the team hasn't officially confirmed the veteran quarterback will make his second consecutive start, it seems likely Cooper will be catching passes from the 38-year-old Sunday. The 29-year-old wide receiver tallied three catches on five targets across 23 snaps before being forced out of last week's loss to the Rams, so fantasy managers shouldn't have many reservations slotting Cooper back into lineups.

  • Browns' Amari Cooper: Questionable, yet to clear protocol

    Cooper (concussion/ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports. Cooper sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday but has a chance to play after returning to the practice field Friday as a limited participant. According to Zac Jackson of The Athletic, Cooper has yet to pass through the five-step concussion protocol, but the Browns are holding out hope that the receiver will be able to gain clearance from an independent neurologist Saturday. If Cooper clears the protocol and is able to play through the rib issue Sunday, he'll be returning to an uncertain situation at quarterback. Following Friday's practice, head coach Kevin Stefanski was unwilling to name either Joe Flacco or Dorian Thompson-Robinson as the team's Week 14 starting quarterback, and official word on that front may not arrive until gameday.
