Cooper has drawn 18 of Dak Prescott's 67 targets (26.9%) in two games with the Cowboys. He posted yardage tallies of 58 and 75 after failing to hit 20 yards in consecutive clashes as a Raider. The trade has salvaged his fading stock, and the Falcons have relented the third-most fantasy points per game (29.0) to opposing wideouts. The confluence of volume and matchup make Cooper a top-25 option who has hopefully left his floor concerns in Oakland.Howard has logged just one more snap than Tarik Cohen over the last four games, turning a featured role into a clear timeshare. While he has also deposited four touchdowns during that period, he has totaled just 208 yards (with only two catches for 20 yards) while averaging 3.2 yards per carry. He's a touchdown-dependent RB2 (at best) facing a Vikings defense that has permitted rushing scores to just two running backs (David Johnson and Alvin Kamara) this season. Following a string of convincing wins, a more competitive opponent makes Cohen the preferred Bears running back in all formats.

We now have a two-game sample for Cooper and it's looking good so far in his new life with the Cowboys as he's seen 18 targets in those games. The best part is that he's delivering with those targets despite the lack of knowledge in the offense and rapport with his quarterback. He's tallied 11 catches for 133 yards and a touchdown, though it could've been more if Prescott hadn't missed him down the sideline when he had his corner beat by multiple yards. The Falcons present another plus-matchup, as they've allowed plenty of performance on a per-target basis, as the 2.01 PPR points per target to wide receivers ranks as the fifth-highest mark in the league. They don't have a shutdown cornerback that they'll attempt to shadow Cooper with, and that's the reason we've seen six wide receivers top 100 yards against them through nine games. Knowing that Cooper has double the targets of any other Cowboys pass-catcher over the last two weeks should give you confidence when inserting him as a rock-solid WR2 this week who comes with WR1 upside. We've watched the Bears ride Howard over the last three weeks, as gamescripts have been in their favor as seven-plus point favorites in each game. Because of that, he's totaled 47 carries to Cohen's 18 carries, but that time is coming to an end this week. The Vikings are going to be the most competitive team they've played in a while and their run-defense has allowed just 3.66 yards per carry on the season (6th-lowest) with two rushing touchdowns (2nd-lowest). In the two games he met them last year, he totaled just 85 yards on 28 carries without a touchdown. Knowing that Howard has seen exactly five targets over the last six games, he's nothing more than a mediocre RB3 option this week.

Cooper has played well since coming to Dallas and he should be a WR2 against a horrible Falcons secondary that is 30th against fantasy wide receivers. Howard goes against a Minnesota D that has allowed the seventh fewest rushing yards to running backs this year. Howard is a low-upside flex play.
