Amari Cooper Won't Take Practice Field On Wednesday

Wednesday, December 6, 2:08 PM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper (concussion/ribs) is not practicing on Wednesday. The veteran exited the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams after taking a big hit and was evaluated for a concussion and rib injury. Although there's no update on whether he could play in Week 14 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, his absence from practice to begin the week is not a good sign. If he can't play, Elijah Moore will become an appealing flex option. Moore saw 12 targets in his first game with Joe Flacco, so his upside might be higher than it was with previous quarterbacks. The Jaguars have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season.

Saints Put Michael Thomas On Injured Reserve

Tuesday, November 21, 4:04 PM

The New Orleans Saints are placing wide receiver Michael Thomas (knee) on Injured Reserve, which means that he will be forced to miss at least the next four games. Head coach Dennis Allen said on Monday that Thomas' knee injury was going to keep him out for some time, but now we know it will be at least for the next four games. It means that fantasy managers won't have him to close out their regular season and they might not even be able to count on him if they make the postseason. The 30-year-old injured his right knee on the first offensive play in Week 10 and was eventually ruled out for the rest of the game. Until Thomas is able to return, Rashid Shaheed and rookie A.T. Perry will see more targets through the air behind target hog Chris Olave. Tight end Juwan Johnson also becomes more attractive as a TE streamer.
