Cowboys pick up fifth-year option on WR Lamb

The Dallas Cowboys picked up the fifth-year option for 2024 on wide receiver CEEDEE LAMB late last week. Last season, Lamb established career highs in receptions (107), yards (1,359) and touchdownsMore (9) in his first year as the Cowboys’ lead receiver after the trade of AMARI COOPER to the Cleveland Browns. The Cowboys are likely hoping the option is a placeholder to an eventual long-term deal. Less



Browns WR Cooper feeling good after core surgery

Cleveland Browns veteran wide receiver AMARI COOPER labored through the final month of last season with a painful core muscle injury. Cooper had surgery a couple of months ago and saidMore recently that he is feeling good, adding that he was “healing up real nice” and that he is “exactly where I’m supposed to be”. With the team’s offseason program beginning this week, the Browns are expected to ease Cooper back into action. Less

Factoid: Free agent receivers

I’m not sure if a notable wide receiver will switch teams this year. But there probably will be at least a couple, and I’m going to be more careful this year not to underestimate their potential to put up big numbers.   more »


Factoid: Davante Adams

No wide receiver in the league has caught more than 40 percent of his team’s touchdown passes in the last two seasons. I think those are the only times in league history that’s occurred. But the go-to guys have bounced back this season, with a handful of players dominating their team’s opportunities around the end zone.   more »

Raiders cut former first-round defender

Amid frustration from a disappointing 2-6 start to the season, the Las Vegas Raiders cut former first round safety JOHNATHAN ABRAM in an unexpected move on Tuesday. Abram was the 27thMore overall pick in the 2019 draft and was the Raiders’ compensation in the AMARI COOPER trade with the Dallas Cowboys. Abram was a hard hitter, but he struggled in coverage and had issues with on-field discipline. Less

Browns WR Bell activated off PUP list

Cleveland Browns rookie third-round wide receiver DAVID BELL (foot) was activated over the weekend off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Bell’s timely return is crucial because the Browns areMore counting on him to play a big role this season, possibly even as the second wideout behind starter AMARI COOPER. Bell logged several offseason reps with Cleveland quarterback DESHAUN WATSON, although time will tell when Watson returns to the mix amid suspensions and appeals. Less

Around the NFL: Dallas Cowboys

The chances of Jalen Tolbert putting up viable numbers, especially early in the season, seem to be improving. James Washington (the other big wide receiver addition by the Cowboys in the offseason) left practice today with what appears to be a sprained ankle.  more »


Around the NFL: David Bell

There won’t be another Amon-Ra St. Brown this year. It’s rare for lightly-regarded rookie receivers to make much of an impact. But if there’s somebody who’s got a little bit of that in him, it likely will be David Bell.  more »


Around the NFL: Cleveland Browns

It’s looking more and more likely that Jacoby Brissett will be doing most of the quarterbacking in Cleveland. Maybe all of it. And that should have everyone wary of counting on much from that team’s pass catchers.  more »



Washington headed to Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys signed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JAMES WASHINGTON to a one-year contract, adding both depth and experience to the wide receiver room. Washington was a second-round pick ofMore the Steelers in 2018, although he never had a major impact in Pittsburgh’s offense. With AMARI COOPER off to Cleveland and MICHAEL GALLUP working his way back from an ACL injury, Washington could have some fantasy relevance alongside fellow wideout CEEDEE LAMB to start the upcoming season.

Amari Cooper headed to Cleveland

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to trade veteran wide receiver AMARI COOPER to the Cleveland Browns. The deal is pending a physical and should be finalized by the middle of theMore week. The Browns and fantasy owners will hope that the Cooper trade yields better results than a similar trade to acquire another veteran wideout, ODELL BECKHAM JR. Meanwhile, with Cooper headed to Cleveland, the Cowboys will officially move fellow wideout CEEDEE LAMB into the No. 1 receiver role. Less


Around the NFL: Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper is being traded to Cleveland, but I’m not crazy about the fit. I don’t expect he’ll put up top-20 receiving numbers in that offense.   more »



Cooper out, Gallup in for Cowboys?

The Dallas Cowboys are working to get their wide receiver room in order heading into the 2022 season. As part of their efforts to do so, the team is reportedly setMore to release wide receiver AMARI COOPER by the start of the new league year on March 16th. The Cowboys are also reportedly close to a new deal with free agent wideout MICHAEL GALLOP. The Cowboys are projected to be more than $21 million over the salary cap, with many free agents to address. Less

Free agency is starting in two weeks, and it’s looking like there will be a lot of veteran pass catchers who’ll be available.
