Riley Cooper's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 9

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IINovember 3, 2013

The Philadelphia Eagles were able to dominate the Oakland Raiders in Week 9, and Riley Cooper had the greatest game of his career thanks to a historic day from quarterback Nick Foles.

After scoring yet again with less than five minutes remaining in the third quarter, Cooper had already put up 139 yards and three receiving touchdowns on just five catches. He had already put up 32 points in ESPN standard-scoring leagues.   

Heading into this game, Cooper had only grabbed 20 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns. He only had 13 total points in the first five weeks of the season, but he's now had 59 points over the past four.

With Foles under center (who had seven touchdowns with a quarter still to play), Cooper has thrived. The two seem to have a legitimate connection that could lead to a successful fantasy season for the wide receiver out of Florida.

Based off of what we've seen with him and Foles in the lineup together, Cooper should be a legitimate flex option for the rest of the 2013 season.
