You won't find a bigger Cooper fan than me, but he may be a tad overrated in the fantasy world. Since arriving in Dallas, he's played 25 games. In those games, he's finished as a WR2 or better in just 11 of them. While it's difficult to find players that hit that mark over 50 percent, you want your WR1 to hit that mark more often than not, which is something Cooper can't say. Now adding CeeDee Lamb to the mix, he may lose some of his target upside, though he didn't have an elite target share to begin with.Coming off a year in which he played just 10 games while dealing with back issues, many are down on Thielen. You must remember he posted back-to-back 1,200-plus yard seasons before 2019. Not just that, but with the teams forced to stay away from camps, Kirk Cousins won't have much time to develop chemistry with any of the other receivers, so Thielen should be a target monster. He should have a bounceback season.

 Adam Thielen is a fake value and that entire Vikings offense is going to be a mess post-Diggs. Don't bet on age 30 bounceback years from injury at a top 4 round price. @FF_RyanB

Cooper really did not build on his 2018 season and finished 2019 with 1,195 yards receiving and 8 receiving touchdowns. Cooper is among the most talented receivers in the league and worthy or WR2 value, but he is not consistent enough to be a WR1.Thielen ended up missing 6 games due to injury and he finished with 424 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns. He should rebound from that with a healthy 2020 season, but he is more of a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in an offense that features RB Dalvin Cook.

Will always be underrated because of his inconsistency IMO. Finished as WR10 on the year with only 119 targets and constantly dealing with injury. If he returns to Dallas he will continue being the alpha. Cobb might get some McCarthy love, Gallup will get some 3rd year leap love, but Cooper will always remain the clear 1 for me. Gallup still struggles with catch consistency and Cobb is a nice slot piece but nothing more, especially for fantasy. Could also be out the door.The Vikings went from 6th to 30th in attempts following the firing of Defilipo and promotion of Kevin Stefansky. Cousins thrived in the new system, ranking 9th in play action pass attempts. Thielen has seen a steady decline in targets dating all the way back to last year when Dalvin Cook returned from injury and the OC changes were made. Injuries have been an issue as well.
