Cooper reeled in 10 of 13 targets for 217 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 29-23 overtime win over Philadelphia.
Cooper absolutely shredded the Eagles' secondary in the fourth quarter, burning his defensive assignment twice for two long touchdowns. It felt like the wideout was destined to have a huge game after a deflected ball -- that probably should have been intercepted -- fell into his bread basket in overtime, resulting in his third long touchdown of the night, sealing the crucial win for the Cowboys in the process. This was Cooper's second monster performance over the last three games, and outside of a dud versus the Falcons in Week 11, the wideout has been WR1 material since coming to Dallas. Dak Prescott is clearly looking to get the ball into Cooper's hands when dropping back for a pass, so the volume should still be there even if Sunday's matchup against the Colts doesn't turn into a shootout.
The Cooper-Dak Prescott connection is legitimate, as the receiver has now brought in 16 of 17 targets over the last pair of contests. It was a second straight eight-catch effort for Cooper, who equaled his second-highest yardage total since arriving in Dallas via trade from the Raiders. The 24-year-old did lose the ball after a five-yard catch early in the second quarter, but his performance otherwise continued to validate the team's decision to pay a hefty sum for him. Cooper will look to continue thriving against the Eagles in a key Week 14 divisional battle on Dec. 9.
Cooper caught eight of nine targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 31-23 win over the Redskins.
Cooper led Dallas' wideouts in targets, catches and yards by a comfortable margin as he finished with his second-best yardage output since entering the NFL. Most of his damage came on touchdown grabs of 40 and 90 yards on back-to-back drives in the third quarter to help his team open up a lead. Cooper enjoyed a respectable start to his career with his new team, but this monstrous performance gives him 22 catches, 349 yards and three touchdowns through four games since the trade. He's clearly getting used to his new surroundings and will look to keep it up next Thursday against the Saints.
Cooper caught three of five targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 22-19 win over the Falcons.
Cooper finished tied for third on the team in targets and managed a long gain of just 17 yards. He was held off the board entirely in the first half and never really got going despite what looked like a favorable matchup on paper. This performance is a tough pill to swallow for Cooper's fantasy owners, who were surely encouraged by his first two performances with his new team. He'll look to get back on track Thursday in another potentially favorable matchup against the Redskins.
Cooper caught six passes (10 targets) for 75 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.
Cooper wasn't able to find the endzone like he did in his Cowboy debut last week, but he still produced a usable fantasy line. With 18 targets through two games, Dallas appears intent on feeding their new weapon. Dak Prescott doesn't provide Cooper with huge upside on a week-to-week basis, but the high volume should keep the wideout relevant in most formats. A soft matchup against an injury-riddled Atlanta defense Sunday bodes well for another strong game for the 24-year-old.
