Amari Cooper has been sporting a questionable tag this week after sitting out the Dallas Cowboys first couple practices.

He got in some limited work on Thursday though, and he's on track to suit up on Sunday, giving him a solid Week 11 fantasy outlook against the Detroit Lions.

Despite entering the season with some injury concerns and playing banged up, Cooper has put together a terrific nine games in 2019. He's one of only four wide receivers averaging at least 20.0 PPR fantasy points per game, and he's also fourth overall with 179.8.

This has been by far the most efficient season of his career, even crushing the numbers he posted in nine games as a Cowboy in 2018. His 11.9 yards per target destroy his previous career-high of 9.4, and he's already matched his career-high with seven touchdowns.

In Week 11 he draws a matchup with a Lions team that has allowed top-12 PPR production to opposing wideouts, and even facing Darius Slay in coverage shouldn't slow Cooper down too much.

Already back on the practice field, don't expect Cooper to have any limitations if he plays. Accounting for him suiting up on Sunday, we have him sitting at WR7 in our Week 11 PPR fantasy football rankings.
