Last week was just the second time all season Cooper didn't finish as a top-34 wide receiver, despite seeing double-digit targets just twice all season. Darius Slay was a tough matchup, which kind of primed him for the matchup against Stephon Gilmore this week. Based on quarterback rating in his coverage, he's the fourth-toughest matchup among cornerbacks who've played at least 25 percent of their team's snaps. Oddly enough, the No. 1 cornerback on that list is J.C. Jackson for the Patriots. As a team, they've allowed just a 48.1 percent catch-rate to wide receivers along with a ridiculous 5.03 yards per target, and one touchdown on 214 targets. It's safe to say this is as bad of a matchup that you could ask for, as there's been just one receiver who's been able to cross the 15 PPR point threshold, and that was Golden Tate, who caught a 64-yard catch-and-run touchdown where most of his yardage came after the catch. Knowing Cooper is not a volume hog like some of the other top-tier receivers, it'll be difficult for him to overcome this brutal matchup, though you also don't want to bet against one of the best route runners in the game. You start him as a middling WR2 but lower your expectations this week.

Amari Cooper update: Jerry Jones expects him to play in Week 12

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he expects Amari Cooper (knee) to play in Week 12 against the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

It was previously reported that Cooper is still "fighting through" his knee injury. He played on just 55% of the snaps in Week 11 versus the Lions. We expect Cooper to play this weekend in New England. Even in a tough matchup he's must-start for fantasy purposes.
