4. Amari Cooper will have another 100-yard game

Amari Cooper had a nice rebound game against Buffalo as he went for eight catches for 113 yards and two touchdowns. He was non-existent against the Miami Dolphins a couple of weeks ago, so it was a good sign to see him get back to his average self.

This was his fourth game crossing the 100-yard mark and he also added to his touchdown totals now having seven of them. For the year, Cooper is at 50 receptions for 698 yards. He’s never had more than eight touchdowns in a season in his career, so he looks to run by that mark soon. Potentially, his 69. 8 YPG also has him on pace for one of his best seasons in terms of yards gained with 1186 yards.

Cooper has been one of the few bright spots this season for a team that seems to be struggling in so many other areas. Between his good season and the rise of Donovan Peoples-Jones, the wide receiver concerns going into the year haven’t been as pressing as in past seasons.

DPJ has been very consistent, having caught four passes or more in seven straight games. His 577 yards gained so far are only a few yards off from his previous season’s totals, so he’ll run by those totals likely in this next game. He’s on pace to reach 1,000 yards gained in a season for the first time in his three years.

This part of the Browns offense, especially with Deshaun Watson returning can be an exciting part of this team moving forward. Now all this team needs are more wins.
