Fantasy Football analysis: Browns WR Amari Cooper

Cooper saw 12 targets go his way two weeks in a row before that number dropped to four last week as he caught four three passes for 74 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7. He will get a matchup against a Bengals defense that allowed Atlanta Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota to throw for 124 yards and a touchdown on 8-of-13 passing last week.

Start or sit in Week 8?

Cooper is a top-15 wide receiver fantasy football option this weekend. If you have him on the roster, then he should be inserted in the starting lineup.
