The Bears have been in the top half of the league against WRs over the past five weeks, but they are no where near the feared matchup that they were last season. Cooper sees the best matchup of the WR crops, seeing a 12% matchup advantage over Kyler Fuller. Cooper has been relatively quiet recently, but he did put up 85 yards in a tough matchup on Thanksgiving. He is a solid WR2 option with upside this week.I won't even try to explain what happened last week against Minnesota. Overall, Lockett has been bad recently, and he knows it. Look for him to get involved very early this week. In fact, I would not be surprised to see Wilson make it a point to target him on the first pass attempt. Still, will that be enough? He is a WR2 with upside against the Rams.
Derek Lofland

Cooper has not done much in recent weeks, Cooper is a low-end WR2 to high-end WR3 on the road against the Bears 5th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.Lockett has been a bust over the last few games, but he still has to be in the WR2 discussion against the Rams 15th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There was a scare with Cooper last week when he took a direct hit to his knee where he was flipped and came down hard. He did return to the game and early word from Jason Garrett is that he's expected to play. The Bears aren't a tough task for a receiver like him, as Amukamara struggles with speed over the top (he's actually been ruled out for the game with a hamstring injury), while Fuller is better in contested catch situations. Neither of them are particularly agile. It's why we've watched fellow elite route-runner Stefon Diggs dominate them the last two times they've played and why Emmanuel Sanders was able to tag them for 11/98/1 earlier this year. Cooper should be in lineups as a low-end WR1 where the only risk is re-injury.There are many wondering what to do with Lockett after his zero-catch performance on Monday night football. You really don't have a choice but to play him. He's a volatile player to begin with, and he was also reportedly dealing with the flu last weekend. Provided he practices in full at some point this week, we have to assume he's healthy. The matchup with the Rams isn't a particularly good one, as Nickell Robey-Coleman is the one he'll see in coverage. Despite covering the slot - where a high catch-rate is expected - he's allowed just 29-of-49 for 259 yards and one touchdown in his coverage. The last time these two teams met, Lockett finished with four catches for 51 yards and a touchdown, though he only saw four targets, so it's not an appealing matchup for him in the slot. You have to lower expectations for Lockett, as he hasn't been the same player since hurting his leg in the 49ers game. He should still be in the high-end WR3 conversation.
