Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Brown is a stud, plain and simple. He's defied the rule of regression and continues to blow the roof off normal projections. Based on the targets he saw last year and where on the field he saw them, he was supposed to finish as the No. 30 wide receiver. That's the opportunity he had. Well, he finished as the No. 12 wide receiver. The year before that, he was supposed to finish as the No. 49 wide receiver but finished No. 15 instead. The addition of Julio Jones will certainly limit his target ceiling, but based on what we've seen to this point, his efficiency should carry him to new heights in 2021.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.

The trade for Julio has it's pros and cons for Brown. The pro is he'll see more single coverage and room to operate underneath with Julio serving as a deep threat. The Titans offense should go to another level which means more TDs. The con is less targets. Julio's veteran presence should help Brown develop his route running and overall professionalism. He commands respect in the locker room. A.J. Brown will only improve under Julio's mentoring. He's set for another good year. That said, make no mistake. Julio is the #1 WR on Tennessee, not Brown.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.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The addition of Julio Jones opposite of A.J. Brown is a boost for his outlook. The Titans have been a funnel offense the past two seasons and their promotion of their TE coach to OC tells us that the plan is to remain true to what has worked. With the vacated targets of WR Corey Davis and TE Jonnu Smith vacated, there will be more than enough work to go around for everyone to feast. It will also open up space for Brown to work against more 1-on-1 coverage, which he can beat at any moment. The icing on the cake is the True Throw Value king himself, Ryan Tannehill, delivering passes. The True Throw Value (a BRoto Fantasy Exclusive Stat that measures a QB's fantasy efficiency through the air) king was wildly efficient yet again last season, finishing third overall for his second top-3 and third top-6 finish in as many years. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
The addition of Julio Jones may slightly cap AJB's seasonal projection, but by a slim margin. Brown has feasted on efficiency and should continue to do so. He is still and elite option worth of a top-five pick for upcoming redraft leagues. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While AJ Brown may no longer get the 180+ targets we were hoping for from him this season, he's still a top-tier fantasy option after the addition of Julio Jones. Brown moved down a couple of spots in my rankings, but he's still a top-10 receiver and should see plenty of work. This offense is going to be incredibly fun to watch in 2021 and adding Brown to your fantasy roster might be too good to pass up, no matter his price tag. My Updated Very Early Projection: 83-1203-11 receiving.

Those massive target totals just took a huge hit with Julio Jones arrivingWas the WR3 prior to Dak's injury. Huge that Dak is returning.
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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Brown had 212.5 fantasy points in 14 games last year and he has established himself as one of the best deep threats in the NFL. He is a great WR1 in an offense that opens itself up to big plays downfield with Derrick Henry's rushing ability.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.
