2013 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-17-2013 by Ben Standig
8/7: It goes without saying that Cooper hasn't had a good few weeks. SInce the Eagles have welcomed him back into the fold, we'll move on from the ugliness and focus on the football. There is also a reason why Philly kept him on the roster: they're running out of bodies. With his size and route-running ability, Cooper is an interesting talent and one the Eagles might have to rely on considering their limited options. If he emerges as a starter, it is conceivable he's a draftable WR5, but circle back in a couple of weeks.
Somebody is about to pick up a whole bunch more targets now that the Eagles confirmed wide receiver Jeremy Maclin is out for the season after tearing tore the ACL in his right knee. That someone could be Cooper, who offers red zone size, though has remained a fantasy tease. He did catch a career-high 23 passes last year, three for touchdowns. The Eagles' WR2 position is certainly one to watch during training camp. So far the viewing has been a bummer.
