Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 11 PPR Rankings
Amari Cooper photo 7. Amari Cooper (at DET)
The MRI he had on his knee apparently meant nothing to him, as he posted a ridiculous 11 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown against the Vikings last week. He saw a season-high 14 targets, which is promising, as he'd been lacking in the target department through eight games. The Lions are going to have Darius Slay shadow him in coverage, one of the better shadow cornerbacks in the game who's allowed just a 57.1 percent catch-rate in his coverage this year with just one touchdown on 28 targets. The Cowboys move Cooper around quite a bit, so it'll be impossible for Slay to stay on him 100 percent of the time. It's the reason we saw Allen Robinson able to tally six catches for 86 yards against them last week. Some will look back and say that Stefon Diggs hit them up for 7/142/0 but Slay left that game after playing just 18 snaps, opening the door for him to produce. Cooper will remain in lineups as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 because he's still a top route-runner in the game, but it's not a week to play him in cash lineups.

He's getting back into the must-start territory, as he's now seen six-plus targets in 6-of-7 games. He's going to benefit form Cooper pulling the No. 1 cornerback in shadow coverage, and this is one of those weeks, as Cooper will get Darius Slay, which will leave Gallup with Rashaan Melvin. He's someone who's been struggling as of late, allowing 19-of-25 passing for 299 yards and three touchdowns since Week 6, which amounts to a 154.8 QB Rating. The Lions have allowed 13 passing touchdowns over the last four games, with wide receivers accounting for six of them. Knowing Slay has allowed just one touchdown on the season, Cooper may have a hard time hitting pay dirt. Week 7 was the only time Gallup finished outside of the top-36 wide receivers, so he should be glued into lineups as a stable WR3, at worst. With the matchups, you can say he's in the low-end WR2 conversation this week.

Just when we thought we could write Cobb off; he's seen eight targets in each of the last two games. His 22.6 PPR points in Week 10 gave him his first top-24 finish on the season, so it's not as if you've been missing much. In fact, that was the first time he'd finished better than WR40 since back in Week 1. The Lions have Justin Coleman defending the slot, and after a hot start, he's struggled over the last five games. In that time, he's allowed 29-of-38 passing for 395 yards and three touchdowns. He's turned into a matchup to target in potential shootouts, though this may not have the feeling of a shootout with Stafford potentially out. The Lions have allowed 11 receivers to finish inside the top-24 against them this year, and six of those receivers were slot-heavy, like Cobb. Knowing he's seen eight targets in each of the last two games, he's on the WR4 radar as someone who should possess a high floor, though his history with the team (eight games) suggests he doesn't have a very high ceiling.
