Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Sure, Woods sees in-between 5-8 targets in 8-of-9 games coming into Week 11 against the Bucs, but then suddenly gets targeted 15 times. Sometimes you just have to accept the volatility of the NFL and move on. Woods now has seven touchdowns on the season, which ties a career high. There have been times where McVay changes the offensive plan mid-season and you wonder if that happened a few weeks back, as Goff is throwing the ball a lot more over the last month. Unfortunately, Woods did see 10 targets against the 49ers the last time they played, though they only netted four catches for 29 yards, but he did sneak in a touchdown to salvage his fantasy day. There have been rumors that the 49ers might get Richard Sherman back from injury this week, though Jason Verrett has done a great job in his place, allowing just 16-of-25 passing for 162 yards and one touchdown. Whichever one plays, that's who Woods will see about 40-45 percent of the time, but the Rams have done a great job moving him around to get him better matchups. With the increased passing volume, the arrow is pointing up for Woods, even if this matchup isn't all great. Consider him a low-end WR2/high-end WR3 who comes with a solid floor.Despite all the quarterback changes and inconsistencies in this Cowboys offense, Cooper has managed to post at least five catches and 67 yards in 8-of-10 games. He's lacking that top-five upside he had with Dak Prescott under center, but he's still a very usable WR2. The Vikings matchup was a great one for the Cowboys, who target their receivers heavily, but the matchup against Washington hasn't been nearly as kind to receivers. Cooper has a touchdown issue to begin with, so when you add in that they've allowed just six wide receiver touchdowns all year, it's an issue for his projected ceiling. As a team, they've seen just 17.8 wide receiver targets per game, and that's led them to allow the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. It's worth noting that Cooper caught 7-of-7 targets for 80 yards the last time they played in a game the Cowboys threw for just 114 yards. He accounted for 63.6 percent of the receptions and 70.2 percent of the yards. That's not going to happen again, but it's clear Cooper can beat their cornerbacks. The problem is ceiling, as Washington has allowed just three top-20 wide receivers this year, and each of them saw at least nine targets. He's the best play on the Cowboys, but he's still stuck in high-end WR3 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Woods did have 12 fantasy points the last time these teams met, despite Jared Goff struggling in that game. Woods is low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 this week.The Football Team is 2nd against fantasy wide receivers and Cooper had only 12 fantasy points the last time they played. Cooper is a low-upside WR3 playing with Andy Dalton in a tough matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Cooper was a low-end WR2 in my rankings last week and that's likely where he's going to land again in week 12. He put together a solid performance in week 11 and was a few yards away from finding the end zone on one of his six receptions. This is a tougher matchup for opposing WRs, but Cooper should be viewed as a solid start here.
