Fantasy Football Outlook: Chris Cooley’s days as a TE1 are long over, as Fred Davis has taken the inline starting job. Cooley has suffered some tough injuries in recent years, but if he remains on the team, he should be a decent Joker or H-Back to move around, and provide Robert Griffin another veteran target, that knows how to get open in this league.
Other than that, he’s worth avoiding on draft day, and will need Davis to go down with an injury or suspension before he has relevance.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
It’s time to bail on Chris Cooley as an option worth drafting if you play in leagues of 12 teams or less. Cooley’s knee hasn’t reacted well this off-season and recently he went to visit Dr. James Andrews to asses what was wrong with his recovery. Basically, it looks like Cooley will continue to rest the knee, but I would look to target Fred Davis as a late round stash instead.
We’ve seen Davis be a fantasy relevant starting option when Cooley was down in the second half of the 2009 season, and he should be a respectable option if Cooley misses time. I’m not a big fan of players with knee problems, and especially if the knee isn’t reacting well when the start to play on it, and it swells up. I’m not saying Cooley can’t be an option to hold at some point, but you can do better than waiting around for a tight end with a bum knee, unless your in a deep PPR league, as Cooley has upside to stash late in your draft.
