Eagles WR Riley Cooper is ruled out for Week 1 against the Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

Phildelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper (collarbone) has been officially ruled out for Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. Cooper broke his collarbone very early in training camp and did not practice at all this week. He was initially penciled in as the No. 4 receiver behind DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Avant.

Fantasy Impact: Cooper had surgery on the collarbone in late July and was given a timetable of six weeks to recover, but he's so far back on the depth chart there's no reason for the Eagles to rush him back, and no reason for fantasy owners to care about him. Damaris Johnson will get a chance to step up in his place.
