Hard to ignore the 100+ catches as a rookie and the strong bond formed with Tua Tagovailoa, but also hard to ignore Tyreek Hill reaching in for his slice of the pieHis stock rises and falls on the tide of the Deshaun Watson off-field drama
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 *UPDATEx 3 (6/8) - Liklihood of major DW Suspension coming, potentially for full year. Cooper takes a huge hit with dramatic drop in QB play & likely huge schematic shifts
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Jaylen Waddle looked primed to make the leap into the top-12 conversation after a stellar rookie season. Along with breaking Anquan Boldin's rookie reception record, Waddle commanded a 22% target share and 24% target rate per route run - 18th-best in the NFL. But with the expensive addition of veteran Tyreek Hill, it is less likely that Waddle is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver in Miami. Hill is coming off a season where he commanded the league's seventh-highest target rate per route run (27%). The trade moves Waddle down from a fringe WR1 to mid-range fantasy WR2 after seeing almost zero target competition last season.Amari Cooper finished last season 27th in half-PPR per game (11.2), which was in line with his career average. There is hope that he can provide a higher floor as the clear No. 1 wide receiver in Cleveland. And that floor will be accompanied by an extremely high ceiling with Deshaun Watson entrenched under center. The ex-Texans quarterback fueled top fantasy WR finishes for the likes of Brandin Cooks (WR16, 2020) and Will Fuller (WR8/game, 2020) the last time he played. And prior to that, he supplemented DeAndre Hopkins as the fantasy WR4 and WR10 from 2018-2019.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waddle was terrific as a rookie with 133 targets, 99 receptions, 988 receiving yards, and 5 touchdowns in the fantasy season. He should be an upside WR2, but Tyreek Hill is going to cost him some targets, but also open up the short part of the field for him.Cooper had only 97 targets, 63 receptions, 786 yards, and eight touchdowns in the fantasy season. Cooper is now a Brown and while he will do well catching balls from Deshaun Watson, he also is going to be playing in an offense that runs the ball a ton.
