Week 1 vs. NYG
Receiving: 7 / 68 / 1 on 8 targets
Chris Cooley stepped up in Week 1 against the New York Giants, posting seven catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. Cooley helped the Redskins move the ball in the second half as the Giants rolled coverage over Santana Moss and took away that option for Jason Campbell, working the middle of the field to give Campbell a second option. With Cooley's score he has already matched his 2008 total and if he continues to get numerous targets on a weekly basis he will be a strong fantasy TE option on a weekly basis.
Week 2 vs. STL
Receiving: 7 / 83 / 0 on 9 targets
Cooley was the featured receiver once again for Washington in Week 2. Jason Campbell worked the short passing game towards Cooley for most of the day, connecting with him a team leading seven times, but never for more than 18 yards at a clip. Cooley got open underneath and in the flat but he could not find his way into the end zone, the issue he had most of last year. He still appears to be the top target for the Redskins and with his TD last week he remains a Top 10 TE with very strong upside.
Week 3 vs. DET
Receiving: 3 / 38 / 0 on 5 targets
Chris Cooley was a non-factor in this game. He had three receptions of 11 yards or more but at completely different times in the game. Once in the second quarter that came up short of the first down. Once in the third quarter on a series that led to an interception and once on the final series that fell short of reaching the end zone. Cooley was the target of two other passes on the final drive, but both fell incomplete.
Week 4 vs. TB
Receiving: 5 / 65 / 1 on 10 targets
Cooley was a strong downfield target for Campbell in the middle of the field, and he made a nice catch away from his body on his touchdown. He was just missed on another downfield target that would have been a big gainer, and he also got some screen passes designed to get the ball in his hands.
Week 5 vs. CAR
ight End Chris Cooley was held without a catch for the first time since his rookie season. He worked mainly as a blocker after left tackle Chris Samuels left the game with an injury.
Week 6 vs. KC
Receiving: 5 / 57 / 0 on 9 targets
Cooley led all Redskins in Week 6 with the pass receiving trifecta --- most targets, catches and yards for Washington. Cooley snagged a five yard out late in the first quarter, broke two tackles and went up the sideline for a season best 25 yard gain for Cooley. Cooley added 32 more yards on four grabs, mostly over the middle, as he remains a strong fantasy tight end option for a Redskins team that has little else to offer as far as receivers after Santana Moss.
Week 7 vs. PHI
Receiving: 2 / 21 / 0 on 4 targets
Cooley was featured in the game plan, catching the first two targets of the night, and creating extra yards after the catch. His night was cut short by a broken foot that will sideline him for the rest of the season.
