Amari Cooper has struggled through lower body injuries all season long for the Dallas Cowboys, and this week is no different. While it didn't look like he was playing at full strength in his team's Week 14 "Thursday Night Football" game against the Chicago Bears, Cooper does get a few extra days to recover.

And after being a full participant in Friday's practice, it looks like Cooper is good to go this week against the Los Angeles Rams.

Amari Cooper Fantasy Outlook in Week 15

Overall, the Rams' defense has allowed the 12th-most PPR fantasy points to opposing wide receivers over the past five weeks. However, Cooper will draw the toughest matchup on the field, going head to head with Jalen Ramsey. Still, Pro Football Focus gives Cooper a 12 percent matchup advantage over the talented cornerback.

Cooper has also been a much more productive player when playing at home this season. He's averaged 126.3 receiving yards per contests across six home games, compared to 42.3 receiving yards in seven road games (though he was sidelined for the majority of Week 6).

He's also scored five touchdowns at home (three on the road), and has recorded at least 85 receiving yards in all six games at AT&T Stadium.

In our Week 15 PPR rankings, Cooper comes in at WR21. However, he's always a threat to go off for a big game, even in a tough matchup.
