Amari Cooper continues to be hindered by lower body injuries, but he is expected to play against the Minnesota Vikings.

Cooper has been dealing with knee and ankle issues dating back to before the team's bye week. He left the game against the Giants last week due to the knee injury, but returned and scored a 45-yard touchdown.

These injuries appear to be issues that will continue to pop up the rest of the season, but Cooper continues to be active and play well despite the injury issues. Through nine weeks, Cooper ranks as WR6 in PPR fantasy points per game.

Cooper also has a great matchup with the Vikings, who have struggled to contain outside receivers. He has been given a 33 percent matchup advantage, per Pro Football Focus, which is tied for the eighth-largest matchup advantage of the week.

Cooper looks fully ready to go for Sunday night and can be plugged into your lineups with confidence. He ranks as WR11 in our Week 10 PPR rankings.
