Summary

You couldn't have written Riley Cooper's story if you were a best-selling novelist. A year ago, Cooper seemed to be on the roster fringe and that was before racially offensive remarks surfaced on the internet. When the Eagles sent Cooper home on leave, it seemed a formality that he would be released. Yet, support from some of his teammates and a torn ACL to starter Jeremy Maclin gave Cooper another chance. Fast forward to a year later and Cooper not only made the most of his second chance, he's now a starter with a new 5-year, $23mm deal including $10mm guaranteed. Only in America. What fantasy owners need to decide is just how good Cooper can be, and if he's consistent enough to trust in weekly lineups. For all his accolades, Cooper only finished as WR24 last season and caught just 47 passes. Will he win as many jump balls as he did last year? If not, he may be overdrafted by fantasy owners hoping for another significant step forward. (May 25)

Eagles | Riley Cooper not practicing (Thu Jul 31, 12:06 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (foot) is not participating in practice Thursday, July 31.

Our View: We expect to see Cooper out there soon, but don't expect big things from him in general. Most of the staff sees Cooper as no better than a WR4 or WR5 as it stands, and one of the reasons is we have no idea if he can overcome the greater degree of attention he will receiver with DeSean Jackson gone.
