3. Amari Cooper, WR Alabama Crimson Tide
Amari Cooper is the number one receiver on my list. Frankly, no one else even comes close. White is a great prospect, long-term maybe even a better prospect than Cooper. Nevertheless, this is fantasy football and we don’t care about long-term. For the 2015 season Cooper should be far and away a better pick than White.
Cooper is extremely far along in his development and should have an immediate impact in his rookie season. In a day an age where rookie receivers continue to show that they are more than capable of having a great impact in their first NFL season, Cooper looks like the perfect 2015 candidate to follow suit.
A lot like the players to follow on my list; expect so see someone reach for Cooper in the early rounds of your fantasy draft. Could Cooper jump right in and become the Oakland Raiders number one receiver in 2015? This sounds very likely. Being the number one target for an emerging young quarterback in David Carr, I predict will be a very statically rewarding position for Cooper.
Next: Melvin Gordon, RB Wisconsin Badgers
