    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught 11 passes for 210 yards and a pair of touchdowns during the team's Week 7 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Cooper's 210 yards far surpassed his total from the first six games combined (146), and the touchdowns were his first since Week 1. It was a monster game from Cooper, who was targeted a whopping 19 times, but it could've been even bigger as he again allowed a couple of catchable balls to slip through his fingers. Still, this is the type of performance fantasy owners have been waiting for from the third-year wideout. It'll be hard to keep him out of your lineup in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 4:39am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught five of six passes for 28 yards in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Cooper only dropped one of his passes, which is an improvement from previous yards. Still, he is a risk to play in Week 7 against the Kansas City Chiefs, what with the short week and the Chiefs coming off the loss to Pittsburgh.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 2:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 13, and he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is expected to be in the lineup, but he has been a risky fantasy play this season due to his high number of drops and nagging injuries. He has definitely performed well below fantasy expectations to date.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 4:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has arguably been the biggest disappointment in all of fantasy football thus far, but it looks like he'll have another crack at turning things around on Sunday. Fortunately for him, Derek Carr appears more likely than not to return in Week 6, and a home date with the Chargers could lead to a healthy number of points on the board. Don't be surprised if he posts another dud, however, given his current knee ailment.

  • Posted: 10/11/2017 3:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: It appears Cooper will be good to go for Week 6 against the Chargers, but is that good? Something has been off with Cooper this season, and it's uncertain if his knee has been hindering him for longer than reported. He has had key drops at inopportune times and he just hasn't been himself so far this season.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 8:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper had one catch on two targets for eight yards in a 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Cooper hasn't even cracked double-digit receiving yards in the last three games, and if EJ Manuel is still under center in Week 6, Cooper should probably be left on the bench.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 6:18pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was already off to a brutal start, and it's hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel now that EJ Manuel will be under center. He is a risky WR3 at this point, and you may want to consider benching him against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 5:47pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been limited to three catches for 15 yards in the last two games even though he was targeted 13 times on those games. His fantasy value will take another hit with EJ Manuel as the starting quarterback. Owners may want to bench Cooper this week if they have better options.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 6:07pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper finished with two catches on eight targets for nine yards in a 16-10 loss to the Denver Broncos Sunday, Oct. 1.

    Huddle Up: With Michael Crabtree out, Denver's stingy secondary smothered Cooper, continuing his horrible start to the season. Cooper's stock is probably as low as it will go, so he could make a nice buy-low candidate.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 3:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Cooper could receive more targets this week if Michael Crabtree is not able to play. He has not posted great numbers so far this season and will be facing a tough Denver Broncos secondary. Owners can still start Cooper, but he may only be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 6:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper was called a 'stud' by head coach Jack Del Rio Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: With 10 catches for 101 yards through three games, Cooper has been one of the bigger disappointments to start the year. With a tough matchup with the Denver Broncos on tap in Week 4, he should be viewed as a WR3.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 4:42pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is off to a slow start this season and is facing a tough opponent this week. He may receive a decent amount of targets during the game but may only be a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 4:04pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been limited during practice for most of the season but will be ready to play in Week 4. He has been limited to 40 yards over the last two games and will be facing a tough Denver Broncos defense this week. Cooper may only be a flex option for owners this week,

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 8:36pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted just one catch for six yards in the Week 3 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper and the Raiders offense was held down by a dominating Washington defense. He'll look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Denver Broncos, but that's another difficult matchup. Treat Cooper more as a WR3 for Week 4.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 1:51pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, and was removed from the injury report heading into Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper faces a Redskins pass defense allowing 266.5 yards per game, so there is opportunity for a big stat line. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues for Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 4:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: This appears to simply be standard procedure for the star third-year wideout. While he's only registered nine catches for 95 yards thus far, he does have a touchdown and has also drawn 18 targets. To put that into perspective, if he maintains that pace of nine per game, he'd end up with a career high. Cooper should be a solid WR1 this week, as he has a delicious matchup on tap in Washington on Sunday night.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 4:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been on the injury report since the start of the season but has not missed any time and should be in uniform Week 3. He was held to 33 yards in Week 2 and will be facing a solid Washington Redskins secondary this week. Owners could consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in their lineups.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 2:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Cooper will see his normal workload this week and should have some success because of the favorable matchup. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver for owners in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 1:36pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced fully for a second consecutive day Friday, Sept. 15, and he was removed from the injury report for Week 2 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Cooper opened the 2017 season with a solid performance, including a trip to the end zone while being targeted 13 times. He faces a good matchup against a middle of the road Jets pass defense which plan to work in man coverage. He should be considered a low-end WR1 or top-notch WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 4:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is coming off a fine Week 1 performance and should have a solid role in the passing game against the New York Jets. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this week because of the favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 4:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooper probably will be limited during most of the week but should be on the field for Week 2. He posted 62 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and will continue to be a big part of the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 2:24pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught five passes for 62 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Cooper struggled at the end of the 2016 season but has bounced back with a solid Week 1 performance. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 1:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Cooper likely will be the main target in the passing game this season and should receive plenty of targets in Week 1. Owners should consider Cooper as a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 5:08pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be fine for the game against the Tennessee Titans and should be the main target in the passing game in Week 1. He struggled during the second half of last season but should still be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 4:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was listed as a limited participant for practice on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Cooper was simply limited to preserve him for Week 1 or if he suffered any kind of setback pertaining to the ailment which hampered him in the preseason. When healthy Cooper is a solid low-end WR1 or must-have WR2 in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 8/15/2017 1:02pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (leg) was back on the practice field Tuesday, Aug. 15. He had missed six straight practices and seven of the Raiders' last eight practices.

    Huddle Up: It's a little sigh of relief for the Raiders and for Cooper owners. As long as he doesn't have any setbacks he warrants low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 consideration in one of the better passing offenses in the NFL.

  • Posted: 8/12/2017 6:17pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (leg) will not play in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 12.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been dealing with a leg issue, but it isn't considered serious at this point. The Raiders have no reason to rush their top receiver, and Cooper remains safe to draft as a low-end WR1 or luxury WR2.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 12:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (leg) is still hampered by a nagging left leg injury. He has missed six of the Raiders' last seven practices.

    Huddle Up: It's nothing to fuss over at this point. There is plenty of time between now and the regular season. As such, Cooper remains a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 in a high-scoring offense.

  • Posted: 8/6/2017 5:58pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (leg) was sidelined for the third time in four practices with a left leg injury Sunday, Aug. 6.

    Huddle Up: Coming off two solid seasons, Cooper enters 2017 as the go-to option of an improving offense. He has a great chance to finish as a WR1.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 12:55pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper showed up to training camp seven pounds heavier than he was last season. Not only has Cooper bulked up, he has improved his route-running as well. Offensive coordinator Todd Downing has noticed improvements with Cooper's balance and his ability to come back to the football. Cooper does expect to lose some weight throughout training camp and could start the season around 210 pounds.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has put together two solid seasons in his first two years in the NFL. If he can increase his red-zone touches, combined with his aforementioned upgrades, he has a good shot at becoming a WR1 for the first time in his career.

  • Posted: 7/13/2017 2:16pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught only five passes in the red zone last year, none of them resulting in a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Cooper does the majority of his work in between the 20s. The main knock against him is that he doesn't produce close to the end zone, an area in which his counterpart, Michael Crabtree, has excelled. If the third-year receiver can add a little more scoring to his game, he should enter WR1 territory this season.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 6:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he can have 'a lot more production' and is working to be 'dominant' this season.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has topped 1,000 years in his first two years in the league, hauling in 155 passes. There is every reason to expect that his best is yet to come, and he should be drafted as a WR1.

  • Posted: 5/20/2017 10:05am ET

    Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said the team expects WR Amari Cooper to make a big leap in his play in 2017. McKenzie said Cooper played well early in the 2016 season but struggled a bit at the end of the season.

    Huddle Up: Cooper finished this past season with 1,153 yards and five touchdowns but was held to under 50 yards in five of his last seven games. He struggled with Derek Carr sidelined for the last few weeks of the season, but Carr will be ready for 2017. Cooper will be a big part of the passing game this season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 5:16pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper finished with two catches for 10 yards on 10 targets in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: With third-string quarterback Connor Cook under center, it's tough to blame Cooper for laying an egg. He is one of the best young receivers in the game and should be a WR1 in 2017.

  • Posted: 1/7/2017 12:30pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been fairly quiet over the last several weeks but should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. His fantasy value probably takes a hit because of the team's quarterback situation, but he can still be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/6/2017 1:22pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 6, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be ready to play against the Texans and likely will receive a solid amount of targets during the game. He has posted disappointing numbers over the last month of the season and will be playing with the team's third-string quarterback. Owners probably can consider Cooper as a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 1/5/2017 3:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Cooper's value obviously goes down with the absence of Derek Carr. He did catch a touchdown last week with Connor Cook at quarterback, however. Still, the Houston Texans have been stellar against the pass this season and Oakland will be on the road in a hostile playoff atmosphere. Temper expectations for Cooper.

  • Posted: 1/4/2017 8:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he will 'demand the ball' against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was held below 60 yards in seven of his last eight games, and having Connor Cook under center doesn't help his value. However, his big-play ability is undeniable, and Cooper is still worth using as a WR3 given the limited player pool in the playoffs.

  • Posted: 1/4/2017 4:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been able to play the last few weeks despite the injury but has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last six games. His value will be hurt by the team's quarterback situation, but he could still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 12:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should receive a solid amount of targets during the game, but his value will be affected by the team's quarterback situation. Owners can still consider Cooper a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most leagues but may want to lower expectations.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 7:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play, but the quarterback situation and matchup against Denver are fall from ideal. He is still worth starting in season-long formats, but stay away in DFS games.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 7:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play in Week 17, but with Derek Carr sidelined, don't expect more than WR3 production.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 6:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been on the injury report for a while, but he hasn't missed any time. He was likely limited as a precaution, and you can expect to see him play in Week 17, especially since the team continues to battle for home-field advantage in the AFC.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 7:59pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) posted four receptions for 72 yards on six targets in the Week 16 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Cooper shook off a shoulder injury to play, and he had his best yardage total in seven games dating back to Oct. 30 in Tampa.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 6:39am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was listed as questionable on the injury report after serving as a limited participant in practice throughout the week. He should still be regarded as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 option in most fantasy formats, even though he has been held under 60 receiving yards in each of his last six games.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 3:07pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been on the injury report over the last few weeks but has been able to play. He has struggled over the last month with three performances with under 30 yards and one touchdown during that span. Owners can still consider Cooper as a No. 3 receiver in leagues despite his recent play.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 6:16pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been trending in the wrong direction, being held to under 30 yards in three of his last four and under 60 yards in six straight. He has too much upside to bench, but another week of WR3 production is certainly possible.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 5:48pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been held to under 30 yards in three of his last four games but does have one touchdown during that span. He should continue to be a solid option in the passing game and can be a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/16/2016 2:57pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play in Week 15 despite the injury and should be targeted often against the San Diego Chargers. He has been held to 60 yards in each of the last five games but can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 4:05pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be fine to face the Chargers in Week 15 but his numbers have not been very encouraging as of late. In fact, the 2015 first-round draft pick has been held to less than 60 receiving yards in each of the past five weeks. With only four touchdowns on the year, owners in standard leagues understandably have to be frustrated with his production, though it is worth noting that he had one of his best games of the season opposite San Diego in Week 5. He's overdue and worth another shot this week.
