Riley Cooper disappoints fantasy owners in Week 15

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Riley Cooper finished with just 29 yards in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. We take a look at the fantasy implications.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw the ball a season-high 48 times on Sunday and wide receiver Riley Cooper caught just four passes for 29 yards. It was a disappointing afternoon for Cooper, who was targeted seven times but couldn't break off for any big plays. Meanwhile, fellow wide receiver DeSean Jackson was targeted a whopping 16 times.

It marked the fourth straight week that Cooper has failed to find the end zone. His Week 10 performance was also the last time Cooper managed more than 100 receiving yards.

Fantasy impact: Cooper's Week 15 was certainly disappointing. He's proving to be a risky fantasy option, especially this late in the season. Foles is obviously producing, so it's difficult to assume that Cooper will struggle every week, but the numbers have been underwhelming for the past month. Owners who want to gamble with him as a WR3 will face a bit of a challenge against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.
