 Anthony Lynn told reporters Wednesday that he doesn't expect any hang-ups for RB Austin Ekeler (neck) against Denver. Ekeler is out of concussion protocol and is working on getting his timing back now.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Just as everyone accepted him as a frontline WR1, Cooper has collected 63 yards in the last two games. That was in a full heaping of playing time. While the Cowboys insist they're playing their starters, there's no guarantee Cooper plays four quarters in a game with no consequences. There's a lot of risk to consider before trotting him out as a high-reward WR3.
