WR - CAR
Week 3 Outlook
The Carolina Panthers announced on Twitter that they have agreed to one-year deal with wide receiver/return specialist Pharaoh Cooper.
By adding Pharaoh Cooper, the Panthers continue to add depth to the wide receiving core, while improving their special team’s return game. Cooper had a career year last season playing 13 games (one game for the Bengals and the final 12 games with the Cardinals). Cooper produced 25 receptions for 243 yards and one touch down. Where Cooper made his mark was in the return game. He returned 25 kickoffs for 543 yards and 17 punts for 129 yards. If you’re in a deep league that has return yards stats, Cooper might be worth a speculative add or place him on the watch list for now.
Pharoh Cooper caught 3-of-4 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Cardinals' 36-26 Week 11 loss to the 49ers.
It was his first score of the season. However, Cooper doesn't need to be owned in fantasy these days.
Pharoh Cooper caught four passes for 29 yards in the Cardinals' 27-21 Week 7 win over the Giants.
The Arizona passing game wasn't needed much today, which led to Cooper leading the team in receiving. With Christian Kirk due back soon Cooper remains off the fantasy radar.
Wide receiver Pharoh Cooper was claimed by the Bengals on Sunday, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
Cooper was let go by the Cardinals as part of their roster cutdown but was claimed by the Bengals on Sunday. He is unlikely to have any immediate fantasy impact other than as a returner.
The Rams activated Pharoh Cooper from IR prior to Monday's game with the Chiefs. The team placed Cooper Kupp on IR to activate Cooper.
For the moment, Cooper should provide some help on special teams. But he should also provide depth for the Rams' wide receiving group, and could even factor into the slot receiver role vacated by Kupp eventually. He's far from an add in fantasy circles, but savvy owners would be wise to keep an eye on him.
