Amari Cooper is confident — like, supremely confident — in the Cowboys receivers this year

The Washington Football Team would love to see a wide receiver eclipse 1,000 yards in 2020, especially considering they haven't had a pass catcher achieve that milestone since 2016.

Amari Cooper, meanwhile, believes the Cowboys could finish the year with a trio of players above the four-digit mark.

In speaking with Dallas' website recently, Cooper called his new teammate, CeeDee Lamb, the "best player on the board" when the franchise drafted Lamb 17th overall this past April. And Cooper's already adamant that Lamb will fit in quite well with himself and Michael Gallup.

"I think the expectation is to have three 1,000-yard receivers this year," Cooper said.

In the history of the sport, only five offenses have been able to pull off such a feat. The 2008 Cardinals, with Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin and Steve Breaston, were the last to do so. In 1989, Washington made it happen, thanks to contributions from Art Monk, Ricky Sanders and Gary Clark.

So, no pressure, dudes.

Perhaps Cooper forgot that Ezekiel Elliott is also on the roster, and he's someone that tends to be involved a decent amount on Sundays. Regardless, Cooper is clearly confident in the damage he and his fellow wideouts are capable of this season.

Hopefully he's wrong, though, because nobody likes it when anyone on the Cowboys is proven correct.
