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.

June 2011

Chris Cooley came back well from injury in 2009, to put up his regular full season numbers in recent seasons. While Cooley is worthy of a top ten ranking in both standard and PPR leagues I will probably have him just outside the top ten in standard leagues. The main problems I have with Cooley is his unproven new quarterback John Beck and that Fred Davis is ready to take on a bigger role with a year under his belt in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, and that he’s cut out his alcohol consumption to stay in better shape.

Factor in that Cooley has failed to reach more than three touchdowns in a season in the past two full seasons, and I’m not sure if Cooley will give you the numbers you need, be it that he’s considered an every week play. If you draft him and the Redskins start out slow, you may want to have another option on draft day to go to like Jimmy Graham of the Saints.

2010 Preview

Chris Cooley suffered a season ending injury and Fred Davis took over for the rest of season. While Davis had a good year Cooley should remain the starter if he stays with the Redskins. His value should be solid with Donovan McNabb under center.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Chris Cooley was having a decent year before he suffered an injury on Monday Night football and missed the rest of the season. Upon Cooley’s departure from the field, young up start Fred Davis took over and posted a solid showing in the offense.

Audio: TE Chris Cooley | 2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: Speculation had Cooley leaving the Redskins even before last season ended as many thought the team would move forward with Davis. Instead of Cooley moving on, new head coach Mike Shanahan decided to keep the talented veteran.

With a proven coaching staff that likes to use their tight ends, Cooley should have a nice bounce back season as long as he can stay healthy. If you’re in a twelve team fantasy football league than Cooley should make for a nice value starter for your team as he will be cheaper than previous years because of the injury.
