After Amari Cooper resurrected the Dallas Cowboys 2018 season, how can the young wideout improve on his terrific first season in Big D?
The Dallas Cowboys shocked the football world when they traded their 2019 first round pick for talented, but streaky wide receiver, Amari Cooper. As we all know Amari changed the Cowboys offense tremendously and changed the fortune of the team, going 7-2 once he joined the team.
After a Pro Bowl first season with Dallas, how can Cooper keep the ball rolling and not fall into a slump as he did in Oakland?
For starters, the offense around him will help him get the touches he needs. In Oakland, Cooper was always the guy that the defense keyed on every play. Yes, wide receiver Michael Crabtree was on the roster with Cooper, but he has never been a receiver to take the top off a defense like Amari has proven to be.
Defenses in 2019 will key on running back Ezekiel Elliott, and rightfully so, but with the eyes in the backfield look for No. 19 to make those big plays we saw last season.
An aspect Amari can improve on in 2019 is eliminating the drops. We did not see many drops from Amari in the Cowboys uniform last year, but he has been known throughout his career to drop very catchable balls.
Amari can also become a little more vocal to quarterback Dak Prescott in 2019. We all saw last year it is necessary for Coop to touch the ball early in order to have a good game, so it might be a good idea for Amari to let Dak know to get him the ball early in often.
With that being said, to a certain extent. We do not need Amari to be yelling on the sidelines like the last great Dallas wideout. The Cowboys need Amari to get over 1,000 receiving yards once again next year and with the weapons around him, along with his skill set, it is bound to happen. Only 143 days till kickoff.
