Cooper should have a big game against the Dolphins, the only worry is they score so many points early that they take the air out of the ball in the second half. I would still trust him as a WR1 against the worst team in the NFL.Watkins is still the lead wide receiver in this offense, but they have a tough matchup at home against Baltimore. He is a boom / bust WR2 this week.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Watkins had a fairly disappointing stat line last week, but he did see 13 targets. When you see that many targets from Patrick Mahomes, you're going to have a huge week more often than not. The Ravens aren't the easiest opponent, but they did give up over 100 yards to both Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk last week. Stick with Watkins as a WR1.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
The Cowboys lost Gallup for this week, so Cooper may see a couple more deep targets against the Dolphins. This may be the worst defense of all time, giving Cooper absolutely no ceiling this wek. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 If you were to know that Patrick Mahomes would throw for 443 yards and four touchdowns in Week 2, and that Tyreek Hill was out, you'd have to figure that Watkins had a massive game, right? What about if I told you he had 13 targets? His 10.9 PPR points was obviously a letdown, but there will be better days for him. The Ravens have one of the more talented cornerback groups in the league, but they're likely going to be missing two starters (at least one) at the position. They were without Jimmy Smith last week, and it let to the Cardinals throwing for 349 yards, though there were no touchdowns. Watkins will see a mixture of Brandon Carr, Marlon Humphrey, and Anthony Averett in coverage, so there's no one matchup we can look at. What we do know is that Watkins has played 69 percent of his snaps in the slot, and we just saw the slot duo of Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk tally a combined 11 receptions for 218 yards on 19 targets last week. You'll want to keep Watkins in lineups, especially with the way Mahomes is throwing the ball right now. He may not be a locked-in WR1 but he's a solid upside WR2.
