|The Eagles 5th round pick in the 2010 draft, Cooper has made some plays when given the opportunity but unfortunately not nearly enough of them. Given a decent amount of playing time last season when injuries beset the Eagles receiving corps, Cooper finished the year with 16 receptions for a nifty 315 yards and a score. Not bad. Not so impressive was his completion to target percentage which checked in at 45.7%, his second consecutive sub-50% season. Cooperís solid size and decent speed make him a good option on deep passes, hence his 19.7 yards per reception figure from last season. However, he struggles to get open on underneath routes and has a limited upside. He isnít worth drafting in standard leagues and may be usurped on the depth chart by rookie 6th round pick Marvin McNutt, rendering him a slight dynasty league prospect also.
|Eagles release Jason Avant -- Tue Mar 4 3:00 pm --|
Save over $3 million against the cap
|The Philadelphia Eagles have released veteran wide receiver Jason Avant. Avant, 30, has spent his entire eight-year career with Philadelphia and developed into a reliable receiver for the Eagles. The 6-foot Avant had 38 catches for 447 yards and two touchdowns last season. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Eagles have re-signed Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin this off-season and this move saves over $3 million against the cap in 2014. Avant will look to sign with a team that needs a veteran leader in the receiving corps. His fantasy value is hovering in WR5 territory at best.

Free agent WR staying in Philadelphia
|The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have agreed to terms with wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on a one-year contract.
"Jeremy is an ideal player for our scheme with his combination of size, speed, strength and route-running ability, in addition to his dynamic playmaking talent," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "We're happy to see him rehabbing well and to get him under contract for the 2014 season." (PhiladelphiaEagles.com)|
FF Today's Take: Maclin missed all of 2013 after tearing his ACL in training camp but is expected to be ready for training camp. He will battle Riley Cooper for targets and the starting receiver spot opposite DeSean Jackson. Both Maclin and Cooper will have a negative effect on each other's fantasy value unless one of them gains the upper hand in Chip Keely's offense. Low-end WR3 value for each as the off-season continues.
|Eagles re-sign WR Riley Cooper -- Thu Feb 27 9:00 am --|
Five years, $25 million
|A day after locking up left tackle Jason Peters, the Eagles signed two more of their own players when they reached a new deal with free agent wide receiver Riley Cooper and extended the contract of center Jason Kelce on Thursday.
Cooperís deal is for five years and is reportedly worth $25 million. Guarantees are not known at this time. (The Intelligencer)|
FF Today's Take: It's been reported that Cooper will receive $10 million guaranteed. Cooper was a deep ball threat last season, averaging 17.8 yards per catch and finished as the No.24 fantasy wideout. He currently sits as the Eagles No.2 wideout but contract negotiations are ongoing with Jeremy Maclin.
