Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
All of the Cowboys receivers take a hit with Dalton behind center, but Cooper should continue to be a safe high-end WR2 every week based on volume alone. The Cowboys are going to continue to throw the ball a ridiculous amount with their defense playing the way that it is now, which means that Cooper should continue to see 7+ targets every game. Fire him up as a high-end WR2 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seemed like the Cowboys forgot they had Cooper on the team for six quarters, as he had just four targets in Week 5, and then saw just one target during the first half of Week 6. Fortunately, they realized he's pretty dang good and wound up targeting him 10 times for 7/79/1. He's now totaled at least 79 yards in 5-of-6 games, though we have seen a clear downgrade in quarterback play. That's one issue, while the next one is the Week 7 matchup. Just 42.1 of the production that Washington has allowed to skill-position players has gone to wide receivers, which is the fourth-lowest mark in the league. When you find out that Washington has allowed just 65.0 PPR points per game to the combination of running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends (ranks as the fifth-lowest in football), that's not good. Would you believe me if I told you there's no team in the league who's allowed fewer fantasy points per game to wide receivers than Washington? It's crazy but true. It certainly helps that they've only had to defend 16.3 wide receiver targets per game, something that will bump up against the Cowboys whose receivers average 29.8 targets per game. From a per-target standpoint, Washington has allowed 8.66 yards per target to wide receivers, which ranks as the 12th-most, so maybe the stats they've allowed has been more of a small sample size? According to Football Outsiders DVOA, they rank as the 22nd defense against No. 1 receivers. You start Cooper as a WR1 but understand he may lose some of that consistency with Dalton under center. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Football Team is 2nd against fantasy wide receivers. Cooper is a low-upside WR2 on the road in a tough matchup.
