Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been sidelined with COVID since Week 11, but he'll travel with the team and is expected to play on Thursday Night Football.

This is great news for his Week 13 fantasy outlook.

Amari Cooper Update

The Cowboys have yet to release official word on Cooper's status, but reports suggest he'll suit up against the New Orleans Saints in Week 13, which is a great jumping off point for the veteran: New Orleans allows the fifth-most PPR points to opposing wideouts.

Amari Cooper Fantasy Outlook

CeeDee Lamb's second year progression has seen him take over as the Cowboys most-targeted receiver, but Cooper is still fantasy relevant each and every week. He ranked as WR23 prior to the absence and still sees 7.2 targets and 4.9 receptions per game.

Cooper has also already matched his mark of 5 TDs from 2020 and his team-leading 9 red zone targets makes him an surefire fantasy starter each week.

The veteran wideout has the potential for a big week thanks to New Orleans' bad secondary, and he's listed as WR10 in The Duel's Week 13 PPR rankings.
