WR Amari Cooper, Browns
A quiet 3-for-4 performance for Cooper against the Ravens sets up a nice buy-the-dip opportunity. Despite Jacoby Brissett being under center, Cooper has stayed afloat in fantasy with top-12 weekly finishes in three of seven games and at least 74 receiving yards or a touchdown in five of seven. Deshaun Watson’s return is still a month away, but now could be the best time to get in on Cooper in trades especially ahead of a Week 9 bye that managers could be annoyed by. TE David Njoku’s unfortunate high-ankle sprain could knock him out for the next month, and he was 10th at his position in target share at just under 18%. Even in a run-heavy offense, that translates to roughly six vacated targets per game that backup TE Harrison Bryant is highly unlikely to soak up entirely himself. Cooper has already been top-10 in targets and should also easily command a 30% target share over the next month with Njoku out.
