Riley Cooper: Not expected to be signed by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper, who participated in the Bucs' rookie mini-camp on a tryout basis this weekend, is not expected to be signed by the team in the near future, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Bucs opted to kick the tires on the 29-year-old this weekend, but it doesn't appear the veteran did enough to warrant an immediate signing. Naturally, that doesn't close the door on a possible return later in the summer, and Cooper notably already has an advocate on the club in former Eagles teammate DeSean Jackson. However, the additions of Jackson, third-round pick Chris Godwin and promising CFL standout Derel Walker in the offseason have added to a crowded and much deeper wideout corps than the team boasted a year ago at this point. Additionally, after being out of the NFL last season, Cooper was unsurprisingly fighting off some rust throughout the three-day mini-camp.

Riley Cooper: Trying out with Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper will have a tryout with the Buccaneers during their rookie camp, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Cooper hasn't played in the league since the Eagles released him following the 2015 season. At 29, it's tough to gauge how much Cooper has left in the tank, as he only recorded 21 receptions for 327 yards and two touchdowns during his final season in Philadelphia.

Riley Cooper: Released by Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper was released by the Eagles on Monday.

Cooper tallied just 21 catches and 327 receiving yards last season, so the Eagles decided to remove him from the roster in a cost-cutting move. He figures to hook on with a new team at some point, but coming off his sub-par 2015 season, it's unlikely he will play a prominent role in the offense wherever he winds up.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: No catches in season finale win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper didn't catch a pass in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.

Cooper, whom many believe will be moving on in the offseason as his contract becomes manageable, caught two passes in his final three games of the season. He finished the year with 21 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns, both of which were the lowest marks since 2012. He was relegated to spot duty all year, and could find himself elsewhere next season.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: No targets in primetime loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper didn't see a target in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Washington.

Cooper is decidedly an afterthought in the Eagles' offense. With plenty of money invested in the wide receiver, it will be interesting to see if Chip Kelly finds a creative way to unload Cooper's contract, bites the bullet and releases the wideout, or decides to keep paying his No. 4 wide receiver like a No. 1 wideout. For the time being, Cooper is nothing more than a blocker in Kelly's offense.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Two grabs in loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper caught two balls for 22 yards in Sunday's 40-17 loss to the Cardinals.

Cooper has just 21 catches in 14 games this year, and is averaging 23.4 yards per game. He was strangely productive earlier in the season, but the Eagles' offense has shifted away from him, and the wideout is nothing more than a desperation play in any fantasy league.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Three grabs in win over Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper caught three passes for 28 yards in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Bills.

Cooper nearly hauled in a 44-yarder on the Eagles' first play of the game, but it was ruled incomplete. He had an impact on the game for the second week in a row, and with the release of wide receiver Miles Austin this past week, his role in the offense will remain marginal but existent. He's still an extremely shaky commodity in any fantasy league.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: First-down catch in win over Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper caught one pass for 14 yards in Sunday's 35-28 win over the Patriots.

It was just one catch, but in the context of the game, Cooper made a big play, picking up a first down very late in the fourth quarter. Still, his fantasy value remains extremely limited, and he's only a desperation play in most formats. His 62-yard touchdown catch from earlier this season was a mirage, and he's been low on the hierarchy of quarterback Sam Bradford's targets for quite some time now.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper (toe) is active Sunday against the Dolphins.

Cooper was limited in practice Wednesday but bounced back to log a full day's work both Thursday and Friday. He'll take the field, but will compete with Nelson Agholor (ankle) for snaps, as the rookie wideout is also active for the contest. Neither can truly be considered a safe play, especially considering Cooper hasn't been targeted in back-to-back weeks.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Probable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper (toe) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

With Nelson Agholor (ankle) probable to play for the first time since Week 5, Cooper appears to have missed his chance at earning a key role in the Philadelphia passing game. Cooper hasn't been targeted since Week 6.

November 12, 2015 01:15 PM
Eagles' Riley Cooper: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper (toe) was a full practice participant Thursday.

With a full showing under his belt, Cooper is set to be active Sunday against the Dolphins. However, he's earned a combined 32 snaps the past two games, while going without a look from Sam Bradford during that stretch.

November 11, 2015 03:33 PM
Eagles' Riley Cooper: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper (toe) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Cooper's season has been difficult to forecast from a fantasy standpoint, as his modest workload has only yielded fruit during a three-game stretch from Weeks 4 through 6. That run produced eight catches (on 17 targets) for 180 yards and two touchdowns, but he's otherwise produced just three receptions for 25 yards in the Eagles' other five contests. In fact, he hasn't been target since Week 6, leaving him on the outside looking in in the passing attack.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Target-less in primetime loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles wideout Riley Cooper wasn't targeted in the Sunday night loss to Carolina.

A knee injury during the week likely didn't help Cooper when it came time for him to make plays against a stout Carolina defense. He was unable to get open on limited snaps, and quarterback Sam Bradford never threw a pass his way. His productivity from the previous three weeks - 180 yards, two touchdowns - was unsustainable for a player of his quality, but this extreme drop-off was likely injury-related.

Eagles WR Riley Cooper active for Week 7 vs. Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) is active for Sunday's game in Carolina.

Cooper missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned as a full participant Friday. Although he has 180 receiving yards and two touchdowns over the last three weeks, his involvement in the passing game can't be counted on. Cooper is still averaging just 3.7 targets per game this season.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Listed as questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) has been designated as questionable for Sunday night against the Panthers.

After missing practice both Wednesday and Thursday, Cooper was listed as a full participant Friday, yet the official questionable designation suggests that his status nonetheless merits tracking.

Over the last two games, Cooper has been targeted 14 times, resulting in back-to-back three-catch efforts, including his second TD in three weeks.

October 21, 2015 02:19 PM
Eagles' Riley Cooper: Doesn't practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury.

Cooper has settled into a comfortable role in the Eagles' passing attack, racking up 17 targets over the last three games. The usage has equated to eight catches for 180 yards and two touchdowns, but his game-day status could be in question as a result of the knee concern, which is of unknown severity. As a result, his activity level will be monitored closely as the week continues.

Eagles' Riley Cooper: Three grabs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cooper caught three passes for 32 yards in Sunday's 39-17 win over the Saints.

Cooper's prolific Week 4 was always going to be an aberration for the team's No. 4 wide receiver, and the Eagles' big win over New Orleans proved it. While quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 333 yards, Cooper accounted for just 10 percent of that. In an offense equally interested in passing the ball to its bevy of tight ends and running backs, Cooper will struggle to see consistent, meaningful touches as the season continues.

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper caught two passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Washington.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Riley Cooper misses practice, may not play in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper was not able to practice Tuesday and with just four days to recover from a calf strain, Cooper probably won't play against the Giants on Thursday. His absence would leave Will Compton as the likely starter next to Keenan Robinson.
