Amari Cooper vacuumed 10-of-13 targets for 217 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 14 overtime victory over the Eagles.
It's the fourth time Cooper's eclipsed the century mark this season, and already the second time he's done so since joining the Cowboys. Dallas had a concise blueprint to target Eagles corner Sidney Jones throughout the afternoon, which gave Cooper ample opportunity to dominate downfield — including separating from Jones for a 75-yard catch-and-run touchdown sprint. In his last three games alone, Amari's exploded for touchdowns of 40, 98, 28, and 75 yards. Above-average Amari has already recorded 642 receiving yards with Dallas, nearly tripling his total in six games with Oakland (280). The Cowboys have put themselves in position to clinch the NFC East with a sixth-straight victory against the Colts next week, keeping Cooper as a high-usage WR1 in Week 15. Dec 9 - 7:54 PM

Amari Cooper caught 8-of-8 targets for 75 yards in the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Saints.

Cooper also lost a first half fumble where Marshon Lattimore kneed the ball out. The Cowboys are now 4-1 since Cooper's acquisition, with the wideout posting at least 75 yards three times in the process. He has added the desired new element to the Cowboys' offense. He will have a juicy Week 14 matchup against the Eagles' undermanned secondary.
Nov 29 - 11:38 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested Amari Cooper could be extended this offseason.

"Amari looks like he's making a bid for his cash," Jones told reporters after Thursday's win. Cooper has turned around his season since his trade to Dallas, posting at least 75 yards or a touchdown in 3-of-4 games. He's signed through 2019 at $13 million on his fifth-year option, but the Cowboys should extend him this offseason after giving up their first-round pick for him. 24-year-old Cooper will likely top the $16 million AAV Sammy Watkins got from Kansas City.
Nov 24 - 2:12 PM

Amari Cooper caught 8-of-9 targets for 180 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 31-23, Week 12 win over the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

Cooper beat Quinton Dunbar for his first touchdown from 40 yards out then broke away from a weak Fabian Moreau tackle attempt for his monster 90-yard score. Cooper has seen at least eight targets in 3-of-4 games with the Cowboys and has put together a 22-349-3 line for Dallas. Cooper has been a legitimate WR2 with upside since the trade and gets New Orleans next Thursday.
Nov 22 - 9:58 PM

Amari Cooper caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Cowboys' 22-19, Week 11 win over the Falcons.

It was a step back for Cooper in his third game with the team after amassing an 11-133-1 line in his first two appearances against the Titans and Eagles. Cooper averaged nine targets per game in those contests. The matchup against Atlanta was ripe, but Ezekiel Elliott was just cruising all afternoon, totaling 201 yards and a score on 30 touches. Cooper was held catch-less in the first half but made a couple contested grabs in the third quarter. Cooper will look to rebound against the Redskins on Thanksgiving.
Nov 18 - 4:16 PM

Amari Cooper caught 6-of-10 targets for 75 yards in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Eagles.

Cooper got off to a fast start with 50 yards in the first half. He had just one catch after that, but it's another encouraging game after Cooper scored in his Cowboys' debut. Cooper was open on multiple downfield plays, but was overthrown by Dak Prescott. His rest-of-season value is up in Dallas, where Cooper is the clear featured wideout. Cooper is a WR2 for a Week 11 matchup with the Falcons.
Nov 11 - 11:50 PM

Amari Cooper caught 5-of-8 targets for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' 28-14, Week 9 loss to the Titans on Monday night.

His eight targets led the team as Cooper was making his Cowboys debut following his acquisition from the Raiders. He beat Malcolm Butler for a four-yard score in the first quarter. OC Scott Linehan was clearly trying to scheme him the ball early, but the offense went off the rails in the second half and didn't score after the break. Still, it's pretty clear the Cowboys plan to force the ball to Cooper, and Dak Prescott's one interception was a forced ball into double-coverage in the end zone to Cooper. Cooper will be a WR3 next week against the Eagles.
Nov 5 - 11:17 PM

Cowboys OC Scott Linehan said Amari Cooper will play a "significant amount" of snaps on Monday.

"We’re not really easing him in," Linehan continued. The Cowboys overpaid considerably for Cooper, so we wouldn't expect the team to just "ease him in", anyhow. It's still a question mark how much of an impact he'll make on a run-first offense that doesn't go downfield often. The Titans' underwhelming secondary will be a good first test to see how the Cowboys utilize Amari.
Nov 2 - 2:32 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said a first-round pick is "what a player like [Amari Cooper] costs."

Paying a first-round pick for a No. 1 receiver is not an issue, but paying it for a player who has struggled to consistently produce and will require a big extension in the near future is more dubious. Either way, Cooper is a Cowboy now, and he will join the team on Tuesday to start getting ready for what should be his debut in Week 9.
Oct 23 - 9:50 AM

Cowboys acquired WR Amari Cooper from the Raiders in exchange for a first-round pick.

The 3-4 Cowboys — who have featured an unwatchable passing offense this season — are going for it in the wide-open NFC East while the 1-5 Raiders are accelerating their tank in year one of coach Jon Gruden's 10-year, $100 million contract. One of the most inscrutable players in football, Cooper has baffled the past two seasons after beginning his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns, but he is still only 24 with loads of talent. There are better offenses he could have joined in terms of goosing his production, but he will be the centerpiece of the Cowboys' previously receiver-desperate attack. Cooper is under team control through 2019.
Oct 22 - 3:09 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are "gathering information" on Amari Cooper ahead of next week's trade deadline.

No team is in greater need of pass-catching help than the receiver-starved Cowboys, who are currently trotting out the likes of Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup at wide receiver. Dallas has begun to do its due diligence on Cooper, who has also drawn trade interest from the Colts and Redskins. The Raiders have been adamant they won't accept anything less than a first-round pick for Cooper, which is a steep cost for a player whose career has been riddled by inconsistency. The 24-year-old also has health concerns coming off a concussion in Week 6.
Oct 21 - 10:43 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Raiders are seeking a first-round pick in exchange for Amari Cooper.

It's safe to say they're not going to get it based on Cooper's inconsistency and Week 6 concussion. Nevertheless, this is further confirmation Jon Gruden is aiming to tear apart the organization after trading Khalil Mack and dangling 2016 first-round S Karl Joseph. Gruden even benched 2017 first-round CB Gareon Conley last week. Cooper was in-limbo GM Reggie McKenzie's 2015 first-round pick. Mack was McKenzie's first-rounder in 2014.
Oct 15 - 4:47 PM

Amari Cooper is done for the day in Week 6 with a concussion.

It's an unfortunate but unsurprising outcome after Cooper was knocked unconscious by Seahawks S Bradley McDougald. McDougald was not flagged for the helmet-to-helmet hit, but he will almost certainly draw a significant fine. Cooper finished catch-less on one target. The Raiders have a Week 7 bye.
Oct 14 - 2:44 PM

Amari Cooper went to the locker room in the first half of Sunday's Week 6 game against the Seahawks with head/neck injury.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald easily could have been flagged for helmet to helmet, but he was not. Cooper was knocked out for several moments before finally walking to the locker room. He will surely be tested for a concussion.
Oct 14 - 1:54 PM

FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Raiders are shopping Amari Cooper.

Jon Gruden isn't done cleaning house after trading Khalil Mack. Cooper has been inconsistent after a down 2017, but it's hard to see the Raiders making such a franchise-changing move. Oakland is also calling teams about 2016 first-rounder Karl Joseph. It's telling that both players are repped by the same agent as Mack. Cooper is signed through 2019 after the Raiders picked up his fifth-year option.
