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.He finished as the WR24 last year, his rookie season, while dealing with some poor quarterback play. While five games is a small sample size, Lamb was the WR12 with Dak Prescott under center. Now in his second year with a full offseason, Lamb might just finish as a top-10 option, especially if the Cowboys keep deploying him from the slot.
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.Lamb came out on fire last year and immediately returned value for fantasy managers that added him in the mid-to-late rounds. While the price tag is certainly going to be a bit higher this time around, he still has the chance of returning value. With Cooper above him on the depth chart, it's unlikely that we ever see Lamb ascend into the top-10, but that doesn't mean that he can't push for top-15. When Dak was healthy last year, both Lamb and Cooper were top-15 fantasy wideouts. I wouldn't be shocked if we see that repeat again in 2021.
Brendan Tuma
FantasyPros
 Lamb enters 2021 as a high-floor, high-ceiling fantasy option given his high usage as a slot receiver and Dallas' breathtaking amount of projected passing attempts. A strong college performer was immediately produced as a rookie, Lamb went for 74 catches and 935 receiving yards despite the disaster of a second half from the team's offense. The 22-year-old averaged 13.1 PPR points per game as a rookie, but that number spiked to 17.1 in games started by Dak Prescott. This is a situation where it's okay to reach in order to be a year early on an obvious breakout candidate.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 There's no telling how good Lamb would have been in his rookie season had Dak Prescott stayed healthy the entire year. With Prescott under center for the first five games, Lamb was the WR12 in half-PPR formats. Without Prescott, he was 32nd, and rarely explosive (topping out at 85 yards receiving, and only twice surpassing 65). With Prescott back and looking fully healthy, Lamb has a chance to excel as the Cowboys' slot receiver, especially if he can cut down a bit on the drops (eight total last season, tied for third-most in the league). Whether you draft him or Amari Cooper first, he should be an excellent WR2 with upside.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
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. At his current ADP (48th overall), It might be time to let Amari to fly the fantasy coop.CeeDee Lamb was just starting to come on when Dak got hurt. Lamb is the real deal. He's a big play machine. He's better than Amari Cooper imo. With a full offseason to get more comfortable with the playbook, Cee Dee should makes a huge jump. I'm going to call him TD Lamb because he should score a bunch of them. The best part is, Lamb can be still be had for relatively cheap in the 4th round.
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 with Cooper being the deep threat.Lamb had 180.7 fantasy points in 16 games, despite being a rookie in a pandemic year and not having Dak Prescott most of the year. He should be a WR2 with monster upside in his second year with Dak Prescott back under center.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
Cooper may not be ready for training camp as he rests with hopes that an irritation in his ankle will calm down. 
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.Was the WR12 before Dak went down. Now has full offseason to learn and be schemed even more heavily into offense. LOVE Sophomore CeeDee
