Brandin Cooks Has Looked Dynamic This Offseason

Tuesday, July 2, 4:03 PM

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brandin Cooks didn't make the impact many had hoped for in his first season with the organization. He caught just 54 passes for 657 yards, but his eight touchdowns kept him on the fantasy football radar. The six-time 1,000-yard receiver has now failed to reach 700 yards in two consecutive seasons, but he's reportedly looking like his old self offseason. "The Cowboys were 11-0 in the regular season when Cooks had at least 20 receiving yards and 0-5 when he had fewer than 20," wrote Saad Yousuf of the Athletic. "One of the most underrated players in Dallas, the 31-year-old Cooks still showed his signature speed while blowing past cornerbacks during OTAs." The former Saint, Patriot, Ram, and Texan is being selected outside the top 50 wide receivers in 2024 fantasy drafts, so he could be a steal at cost in the explosive Dallas offense. However, it's tough to ignore the statistical regression in recent seasons.

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.
