It may be time to start taking Riley Cooper seriously in fantasy football. Cooper ended up with 102 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers. Cooper caught just three passes. Quarterback Nick Foles attempted just 18 passes on the afternoon as the Philadelphia Eagles focused on the ground game throughout most of the afternoon. Cooper tied wide receiver DeSean Jackson for the team lead with five targets.
Fantasy impact: Even though Cooper isn't as flashy as his teammate Jackson, his chemistry with Foles continues to make him a fantasy weapon worth owning. The fact that he caught just three passes would be more concerning if it weren't for the fact that Foles completed just 12 passes all afternoon. It's only a matter of time before Cooper's numbers settle down a bit, but he's certainly worth owning in all formats. He'll likely be a WR3 throughout the rest of the season, but he's more of a WR2 against the Washington Redskins in Week 11.
