Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Despite plenty of other receiving options in this offense, Cooper continues to shine for fantasy purposes. Through Week 5 last year - which is when Dak went down with his injury - Cooper was the WR13 in all of fantasy football. Even with Lamb performing at a very high level right away, Cooper was still a fantastic fantasy asset to have on your roster. Heading into 2021, we should see Dallas air the ball out a ton again and Cooper's going to be the favorite to lead this team in targets. He's a fantastic high-end WR2 to add to your fantasy lineup. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Remember when Cooper was labeled as a "boom or bust" receiver during his Oakland days? While with the Cowboys, that hasn't been the case at all. He's now been a WR2 or better in 20-of-41 games with the Cowboys, which amounts to 48.8 percent. That number is the exact same as Stefon Diggs' career number. It's higher than Terry McLaurin's 48.3 percent. The emergence of CeeDee Lamb may take some of the upside potential away from Cooper, but he's still a great high-end WR2 to have on your fantasy team.It seems the torch has been passed from Thielen to Justin Jefferson, though it's not as if Thielen will just fade into oblivion. It goes back to the Stefon Diggs days where he had to share that production. While Thielen did finish as the No. 8 wide receiver last year, it was thanks to his 14 touchdowns on just 74 receptions and 925 yards. No other receiver finished higher than No. 18 with fewer yards than Thielen. He's also going to be 31 years old at the start of the season and has a history of back issues, presenting a bit of risk, though he does have a ton of proven production with Kirk Cousins, which can't be ignored.

Dak's injury destroyed the Cowboys offense last year. Their line was also decimated. Things should be better in 2021. That bodes well for Cooper. There should be more TDs in 2021. He'll have to compete with Cee Dee Lamb to get them though. That's easier said than done. Cooper is a steady top 15 WR. It's hard to see him produce much better than that though. Also note Amari injured his ankle in May. He might not be ready for training camp. Keep an eye on this as the summer unfolds.Thielen set a personal best last season with 14 TDs. He had fantasy owners Hooked on a Thielen (That's reference to Blue Swede's song lyrics for our younger viewers haha!) Anyway, I digress, where was I? Oh yeah those TDs probably comes down a little, but maybe he'll make up for it with more yardage? Justin Jefferson will eat into some of his targets, but also may draw more coverage. The Vikings play a tough schedule. For that reason I'll downgrade him just a smidge.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
Amari Cooper has had the boom or bust label for many years, but he's found a bit more consistency in Dallas. With Dak Prescott back and healthy, Cooper is poised for a strong '21 campaign, but outside of more TDs (just 5 last year), I wouldn't be looking for higher receiving stats, with CeeDee Lamb sure to see plenty of volume from the slot. Cooper is a 1A fantasy WR, but better suited as your #2.

Was the WR3 prior to Dak's injury. Huge that Dak is returning. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooper had 190.8 fantasy points, despite Dak Prescott missing most of the season. Cooper feels like he should be a solid WR2 if Dak is back in 2021, but I could see Lamb becoming the featured receiver in the offense in 2021.Thielen feels like he overachieved a little in 2020 with 14 receiving touchdowns in 15 games. He is still a very good receiver, but I think Jefferson is a fantasy WR1 and Thielen is more of a fantasy WR2.
