Amari Cooper Held In Check In Wild-Card Loss

Sunday, January 14, 7:53 AM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper caught four of his five targets for 59 yards in a 45-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Cooper was held in check just a few weeks after he shredded this very same Houston secondary for 265 receiving yards on Christmas Eve. The veteran receiver came into the game dealing with a heel injury that held him out of the previous two games and he did appear to be favoring it at times on the field on Saturday. Cooper remains under contract with the Browns for the 2024 season and will be returning as the team's No. 1 receiver after posting a career-high 1,250 receiving yards this past season.

Rashee Rice Wraps Up Rookie Season Quietly

Monday, February 12, 1:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.
