Held in check
Cooper caught four of eight targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 13-10 win over the Steelers.
Cooper was held to his third-fewest yards, which may be a theme the rest of the year as the Browns roll with rookie quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson in place of the injured Deshaun Watson (shoulder). The offensive game plan called for short passes, a radical change for Cooper who has a career-high aDOT of 15.5 yards in 2023 while mostly hauling in passes from the big arm of Watson. As Thompson-Robinson acclimates as the starting quarterback -- it's his job to lose with Watson done for the season -- the Browns may take more chances downfield, and their leading receiver could become more fantasy friendly.
