4. We will all hate Amari Cooper

On 40 targets this season, Cooper has caught 24 passes for 339 yards, a pair of touchdowns, and five plays of 20 yards or more. He has 178 yards after the catch, which is the best in the NFL among wide receivers.

That’s pretty incredible for a rookie.

The Broncos have had the luxury of playing against some pretty horrible receivers with the Raiders over the last couple of years, but they no longer have that luxury. Cooper is legit, and he’s going to be for a long, long time.

The secondary needs to eliminate the mental mistakes and make sure they don’t under-estimate this extremely talented rookie.
