Riley Cooper – Philadelphia Eagles

Matt Hartman - RotoBaller

Baller Move: Add Immediately (12+ Teams Standard, PPR)

Analysis: As much as I don’t want to write, this I cannot deny that Cooper has some real chemistry withNick Foles. Maybe it’s Cooper’s golden locks that immediately bring attention to Foles eyes? The only big issue here is: will Foles remain the starting quarterback in Philadelphia? Because with Michael Vick orMatt Barkley or starting at QB, Cooper will not have the same results. Rumor has it that the starting quarterback may change week-to-week, even though Foles tied a NFL record with 7 touchdowns in one game! But this is still up in the air right now, and Vick has already been ruled out for week 10. Whatever the case, the past two times that Foles started Cooper has 259 yards, 9 catches, 4 touchdowns on 12 targets. If those numbers don’t stick out you are missing out. The only catch here is without Foles, Cooper will be just a marginal wide receiver option. So if you believe Foles will remain the starting QB, go for Cooper on the week 10 waiver wire.
