Amari Cooper Looking For Future Guarantees

Thursday, July 4, 2:19 PM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper didn't take party in the team's offseason program or mandatory minicamp because he wants future guarantees from the Browns ahead of the final year of his current contract. Cooper thinks he has leverage because he's been great in his two seasons in Cleveland, and the rest of the receiving corps is unproven and inconsistent. He's likely looking for something like the $35 million in guarantees that Mike Evans got from the Buccaneers last spring ahead of his age-31 season. Another comparison could be the $50 million the Titans gave to Calvin Ridley, who is six months younger than Cooper. The Browns have the money to give Cooper a raise, but future years could be complicated. The 30-year-old will undoubtedly be the team's WR1 again, but the addition of Jerry Jeudy could lower his fantasy ceiling. Target him as a low-end WR2.

Jordan Addison Impressive Heading Into Year 2

Friday, June 28, 1:03 PM

Minnesota Vikings second-year wide receiver Jordan Addison produced one of the most notable springs of any Vikings player during organized team activities and mandatory minicamp this offseason, taking full advantage of his first NFL offseason to set himself up for an even better year after impressing as a rookie in 2023. Addison was hurt and missed most of the team's spring workouts last year after he was the 23rd overall pick in the draft. Still, he was one of four players in modern NFL history to record at least 70 receptions, 900 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns in his rookie campaign. He showed a natural instinct for getting open and developed a reputation for making tough catches as well. Addison has a bright future, but fantasy managers in 2024 may want to temper expectations a bit now that quarterback Kirk Cousins is gone. He's a fine WR4/flex target but could be a bit more inconsistent with Sam Darnold throwing him the pigskin.
