Time to start Amari Cooper? WR help


#1

Currently have almost all my WRs injured this week in my standard league team. Everyone, except Amari Cooper.

Questionable WR: Demaryius Thomas, Stefon Diggs, Kelvin Benjamin

Only other WR: Amari Cooper

Is it time to roll the dice with Cooper? Or wait and see if anyone plays on Sunday?

My team for any reference:
QB: Carson Palmer
RBs: LeSean Mccoy, Carlos Hyde, Joe Mixon, Marshawn Lynch, Aaron Jones, Orleans Darkwa
TE: Kyle Rudolph

IR: Aaron Rodgers (Still heart breaking)

I’m rolling Cooper out this week in a similar situation. Take out a couple off-ball penalties last week and he put up a very usable line, he hasn’t been great for sure, but he hasn’t been as bad as his stats suggest.

Yeah, I may just have to put Cooper in this week.


#4

Just remember Carr isn’t the greatest against division rivals. But I am still starting Crabtree this week

Kelvin didn’t practice yesterday either which is concerning. I’d consider starting DT over Amari, sounds like he’s going to play and he’ll get more workload since Sanders isn’t likely to play.

I’m trying to figure out whether I should play Amari Cooper, Taylor Gabriel, or Ted Ginn in my WR2 spot. Just got Cooper in a trade and wasn’t planning on starting him (was planning on playing Gabriel). Rankings are looking like I should play Cooper though…should I play Cooper? Projections show me having good odds to win against my opponent (-13 pt spread), but wonder who is safer. Seems like Cooper but Gabriel’s had more points recently. Any thoughts?

I’m hoping Demaryius Thomas is okay. Out of all of them, He’ll most likely be one of my starting WR. Digg’s groin injury and not practicing Wednesday concerns me, same with Benjamin’s knee injury. I’ll need to make a decision with Cooper before tonight though.

My thoughts on your situation, I may go with Amari Cooper. Gabriel isn’t a bad choice, especially if Sanu doesn’t play this week. In my opinion though, it’s Cooper over Gabriel.

Pulled the trigger and started Cooper tonight. So far, I’m breathing easy for the rest of this game.

I’m playing against someone who benched him… I am also breathing easy
