Week 5: vs New Orleans Saints

All WR vs NO

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Sam Bradford finally woke up at the wheel and led his cohorts in this phase of the game to three TDs at Washington - 15/28 for 270 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown is more what his fantasy owners had in mind back in August. Backups Riley Cooper (three targets for 2/72/1 receiving), Miles Austin (three for 2/51/1) and Brent Celek (two for 1/10/1) handled the TDs for Bradford, while starer Nelson Agholor finally looked like a starter with four targets for 3/64/0, and Jordan Matthews posted eight targets for 3/50/0. We'll see if Bradford can sustain the momentum here in Week Five. The Saints' pass D has made a lot of quarterbacks look good in recent years - this year, Brandon Weeden was the most recent player so boosted (16/26 for 220 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions thrown, with three sacks taken for -26 yards) - two weeks ago, Cam Newton blew this unit up with 20/31 for 318 passing yards yielding two TDs and zero interceptions. Advantage, Philadelphia.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs WAS (3 / 2 / 72 / 1 rec)

Riley Cooper played on 67 percent of snaps on Sunday, now fourth most of all skill position players on the season. But his role in this offense is clearly just to fill a seat and distract a defender in three-wide sets. He won't see many targets or be heavily involved in the game plan. That said, every now and again he'll be targeted deep since he'll always be left alone in single coverage. That was the case on Sunday when he hauled in a 62-yard touchdown to open the second half. There wasn't anything particularly special about what Cooper did; running a deep post against a mediocre cornerback won't win any MVP votes. It was, however, an absolute perfect throw from Bradford. Cooper is going to be on the receiving end of these types of plays throughout the season, and occasionally they'll explode for big scores. Predicting when they'll happen will be a headache.

Our View: It's been a long time since Cooper was remotely NFL relevant, much less fantasy-relevant. No need to even roster him, forget start him in your lineup.
