    Amari Cooper's sublime size-adjusted agility

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 124: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion laments the imposition of fantasy football questions on social media. 


    Amari Cooper is the most precocious wide receiver prospect since Julio Jones. 


    Once situation and resale value is factored in, Breshad Perriman becomes a top-2 rookie wide receiver. 


    Intractable fantasy analysts are generally slow to adjust pre-draft rookie rankings based on post-draft landing spots. 


    Amari Cooper's college dominator rating, breakout age, size-adjusted 40-time, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle, and agility score fit the profile of a one-a-generation NFL route runner.


    Andre Holmes' development, or lack thereof, will determine Amari Cooper's role in the Oakland Raiders' offense. 


    Advanced metrics, prospect evaluations, and fantasy football information were provided by PlayerProfiler.com.
