Cowboys expect Amari Cooper (ankle) practicing by mid-August

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to begin practicing after the team's August 13 preseason game, per Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

What It Means:

Cooper is recovering from an ankle procedure he had in early June. Jones also expects Cooper to be able to play some preseason snaps ahead of the Cowboys' Thursday night opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cooper led the Cowboys with a 30.4 percent target share in four games with Dak Prescott under center last season, but his rehab and the development of CeeDee Lamb, may result in less volume in 2021.

Cooper is currently the WR11 in numberFire's preseason fantasy rankings. Our models expect him to barely out-target Lamb 143.0-135.9 while leading the Cowboys with 97.0 receptions for 1,350.8 yards and 7.35 touchdowns. Cooper led all Cowboys' skill-players with 0.73 Reception Net Expected Points per target last season.
