Eagles released WR Riley Cooper.
The move is more than a year overdue. Cooper was one of the league's worst receivers in 2015, catching only 21 passes while diminishing as a blocker. Since averaging 17.8 yards per catch in 2013, Cooper has managed 11.9 yards per grab. He doesn't make plays. The transaction frees up $2.9 million in cap space. Going on 29, Cooper's phone won't be ringing off the hook. 49ers fans should be worried that coach Chip Kelly might want a reunion in San Francisco. Feb 8 - 1:51 PM

Riley Cooper failed to catch his lone target in the Eagles' Week 17 win over the Giants.

Cooper appeared in all 16 games for the third-straight season, but he posted three-year lows in catches (21), yards (327), and touchdowns (two). He didn't catch a single pass Week 16 or 17. Cooper has three years left on his five-year, $22.5 million deal, but seems like a near-lock to be cut this offseason. All of the guaranteed money in his contract is up, and the Eagles can save $2.9 million against the cap by releasing him. Cooper is okay as a blocking receiver, but he's no playmaker and shouldn't be playing regular snaps.
Jan 3 - 10:13 PM

Riley Cooper secured 2-of-3 targets for 42 yards in the Eagles' Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Cooper ripped off gains of 24 and 18, but he finished third among Eagles wide receivers in targets behind Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor. None of Philly's wideouts have been able to establish fantasy reliability this season.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Riley Cooper (toe) is listed as probable for Week 10.

Cooper was limited to nine snaps last week due to his toe injury. He'll be active for a blocking role against Miami.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 05:16:00 PM

Riley Cooper (toe) was upgraded to "full" on Thursday, and will be active for Week 10 against the Dolphins.

The lightly-targeted role player has 11 catches on the season.
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 02:47:00 PM

Riley Cooper (toe) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He wasn't targeted Week 9 against Dallas and isn't on the fantasy radar.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 03:10:00 PM

Riley Cooper wasn't targeted in Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Cooper returned from a first-half foot injury, but played only nine snaps. He could miss practice time and isn't a lock to be ready for Week 10. Miles Austin replaced Cooper in base sets, but was held to one catch.
Mon, Nov 9, 2015 01:40:00 AM

Riley Cooper was held without a catch in Week 7.

Cooper played despite being listed as questionable with a knee injury. He wasn't even targeted and played behind Miles Austin in three-wide sets. Cooper will be limited to a blocking role when Nelson Agholor returns.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 01:11:00 AM

Riley Cooper (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Panthers.

With Nelson Agholor sidelined, Cooper and Josh Huff will play opposite Jordan Matthews. The Eagles inactives are QB Thad Lewis, LB Kiko Alonso, CB Denzel Rice, LB DeMeco Ryans, OL Tanner Hawkinson, and DE Brandon Bair.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 07:05:00 PM

Riley Cooper (questionable, knee) is expected to play Sunday night.

There hasn't been concern over Cooper's status after he played through his injury last week. Cooper should start in two-wide sets for his blocking, but won't be higher than the No. 4 pass-game option.

Riley Cooper (knee) is questionable for Week 7 against the Panthers.

Cooper sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday after dinging his knee Monday night. He played through the injury last week, and should be good for Sunday.
Fri, Oct 23, 2015 12:34:00 PM

Riley Cooper (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

Nelson Agholor (ankle) is also out. Cooper banged his knee Monday night against the Giants, but he was able to finish the game. It is surprising Cooper has not been able to practice this week, but missing both Wednesday and Thursday puts his status in serious doubt. With Agholor likely out and Cooper questionable, Josh Huff could play a large role against Carolina.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 12:30:00 PM

Riley Cooper (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Cooper entered Week 6 with a minor knee issue and banged his knee in Monday night's win over the Giants. He quickly returned and played the remainder of the game. Cooper should be fine for Week 7 against Carolina.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 11:08:00 AM

Riley Cooper caught 3-of-6 targets for 76 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 6 win over the Giants on Monday night.

Cooper kicked off the scoring for the Eagles, hauling in a 32-yard touchdown in the end zone, beating fill-in RCB Jayron Hosley and S Brandon Meriweather's coverage. Cooper later reeled in another 43-yard bomb down the middle, but briefly exited with a knee bruise suffered on the catch. With Jordan Matthews doing very little, Cooper has started seeing more targets. He might be worth owning in deeper leagues as a bye-week fill-in, though production will be spotty. Treat Cooper as a WR5 next week in a road date with Carolina's top-end secondary.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 12:51:00 AM

Riley Cooper caught 3-of-8 targets for 32 yards Week 5 against the Saints.

Cooper's eight targets tied with DeMarco Murray for the most on the team. Cooper could not do much with the work, though he would have had a long touchdown if Sam Bradford had not underthrown him in the first half. Cooper had just nine targets total entering the game, and he is now up to just eight catches on the season. He does not need to be owned.
