Summary

Riley Cooper's days as an NFL starter are numbered, if not expired. In spite of starting all 16 games last year, Cooper managed just 577 yards and 3 touchdowns. Whatever ability Cooper showed to beat defenders deep in 2013 (17.8 yards per catch) disappeared last year (10.5 yards per catch). Combine that with the fact Cooper isn't one of Chip Kelly's guys, and the writing is on the wall. The only reason Cooper will see regular playing time in 2015 is if either rookie Nelson Agholor flops or someone higher on the depth chart gets hurt. (August 16)

Eagles | Riley Cooper doesn't have a catch (Tue Sep 1, 11:02 AM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper doesn't have a catch this preseason.

Our View: Cooper is a guy who is going to have some trouble finding a role considering the weapons around him and that has shown in preseason. At best he might produce WR9 numbers, but unless Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews implodes or Darren Sproles suddenly can't catch, Cooper is going to see very little in the way of opportunity. At the end of the day there are better uses for the end of your bench.

Eagles | Riley Cooper hurts thumb (Sat Aug 22, 11:02 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (thumb) exited a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens Saturday, Aug. 22, with a thumb injury. X-rays were negative, but he did not return.

Our View: Cooper is an obstruction to Nelson Agholor and Josh Huff having consistent value this year. It doesn't sound like he'll miss any time, but if he misses the third preseason game and youngsters impress, it could continue to momentum away from Cooper playing significant snaps this year.
