Eagles WR Riley Cooper goes through first full practice in more than 2 weeks


Eagles WR Riley Cooper goes through first full practice in more than 2 weeks

After the past couple of weeks sidelined due to an ankle injury that had him in a walking boot for a few days, Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14 is back at practice. He actually made his return to full activity Sunday and followed it up with another full practice Monday.
Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18 and LeSean McCoy @CutonDime25 also went through Monday's practice despite some minor injuries. McCoy reportedly has a "small version of turf toe" while Maclin had been bothered by a sore hamstring.

Fantasy Analysis:

Cooper is expected to play Thursday versus the Steelers in the regular season dress rehearsal. Coming off a career year in which he scored eight touchdowns and totaled more than 800 yards on just 47 receptions, Cooper is only a WR4. A good portion of his value last season was created by big-yardage receptions. Those are exciting but not generally consistent.
Cooper also saw more than seven targets in a game just once last season. He should get more looks with DeSean Jackson out of the picture, but he is a boom-or-bust player at a position where talent and dependability are in high supply.
