Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Through the first five games of 2020, Cooper had amassed a total of 55 targets and he was the WR13 in fantasy football. Through the first five weeks this year, Cooper has only seen 34 targets, but he's still the WR14 in fantasy football due to his touchdown production. Cooper now has four touchdowns on the season, which is certainly offsetting the lack of target volume that he's been getting. With Prescott playing as sharp as he is so far this season, there's no reason to believe that Cooper's production will fall off at any point. He's one of Prescott's favorite targets in the red zone and we know that he has the talent to make those opportunities count. In a matchup against the Patriots' secondary that just got torched by the Texans last week, fire up Cooper as a high-end WR2 yet again.Here are Pollard's total touches each week so far this season: 7, 16, 12, 10, and 18. He certainly doesn't have the upside for fantasy that many other options do at the position who see more volume, but he's proving that he's an incredibly consistent option for fantasy lineups. As fantasy managers are scrambling to figure out their RB2 spot every single week, Pollard's actually one of the more reliable and steady options for that spot. He's playing in a high-powered offense, he has a guaranteed role, and we know he has the talent to make those touches count. To prove this point, Pollard leads all RBs in the NFL in Yards Per Carry with 6.4 (min. 50 rush attempts). Based on the way he's been playing recently, he has to be elevated into the weekly high-end RB3 conversation. In this matchup against New England, Pollard's certainly worth starting if you've got him on your roster and you're in need of help at the RB spot.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cooper has scored a TD in back-to-back games and he should be a WR2 against a patriots team that is 8th against fantasy wide receivers.
