Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper finished his first game this season without dropping a pass. Since he is the league leader in dropped passes this should be a good sign. But unfortunately, it is not as Cooper continues to be awful as he records only one catch for 8 yards in Sundays game against the Baltimore Ravens.
I have absolutely no clue why Cooper keeps playing this badly, I honestly believe its hilarious. Derek Carr’s injury is a significant blow to the team, but there is still no excuse for Cooper’s slump because he wasn’t productive before the injury. If you are a fantasy football player that took Cooper high in your draft you should be ashamed of yourself.
Amari Cooper … no passes are caught in his coverage— Ari (@FFesq) October 10, 2017
Cooper has made the Pro Bowl the past 2 seasons but now he seems to be past his prime. He is only 23 years old. He has also recorded a total of 23 yards in his last three games. He currently ranks 104th in receptions, 129th in yards, and 121st in receiving touchdowns. But on the bright side, he leads the NFL in dropped passes and disappointment.

That is hard to fathom.
