    Posted 12/10/17 6:53am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson was a limited participant in two out of three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He is likely to see fewer targets this afternoon due to the return of WR Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension but he could be a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 6:58am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is likely to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, although he will test the ankle during pregame warmups before a final decision is made.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was listed as questionable on the injury report and was able to return to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8. He has not played in several weeks and is too much of a risk to start in most fantasy leagues even if he is cleared to play.

    Posted 12/10/17 8:27am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Cooper had an impressive showing upon his return to practice Friday, Dec. 8, but will be a risky fantasy option this afternoon because of an ankle that is still less than 100 percent. Even when healthy, he has been a major disappointment this season and is not worth starting outside of deeper seasonal leagues.

    Posted 12/10/17 9:04am ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson is likely to see fewer targets this week due to the return of WRs Michael Crabtree from a one-game suspension and Amari Cooper from an ankle injury. That being said, Patterson still merits consideration as a flex option in deeper fantasy formats versus a Kansas City secondary that will not have CB Marcus Peters (suspension) available.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/10/17 11:54am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 14 and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Cooper entered the game with an ankle injury, but it is not known if this is the same ankle that was previously injured. Cooper has struggled at times this season and is only a No. 3 receiver at this point.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 12/9/17 8:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr faces the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, and the first time these teams met this season, Carr threw for a season-high 417 yards and three touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: It has been a disappointing season for Carr overall, but a rematch with Kansas City could be just what the doctor ordered. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most passing yards this year, and Carr could be in line for another QB1 performance against his division rival.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/8/17 9:49am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is not expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The irony here is that the one game Cooper lived up to his fantasy draft status was in Week 7 against the Chiefs. Cooper has yet to practice this week, so this is a spot in which Michael Crabtree should dominate, especially in light of Marcus Peters' suspension. Given the state of the Kansas City defense, however, it is just as likely Oakland runs its offense through Marshawn Lynch.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/8/17 1:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Patterson had a golden opportunity last week with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper injured, and he showed he can still perform at a high level. However, Crabtree is due back on Sunday, and Cooper might be healthy enough to play, too. So Patterson's role will shrink, making him a risky fantasy play.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/8/17 1:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has missed a couple of games and might have a little bit of rust to knock off. Fantasy owners should go another way, even if he is active on Sunday, as he hasn't exactly lit the world afire when he has been healthy this season.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/8/17 6:10pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) looked pretty good during a limited practice appearance Friday, Dec. 8, according to coaches, and the Raiders are holding out hope that Cooper can play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has had almost no practice over the last couple of weeks, and with an ankle that is less than 100 percent, he is too risky to start if he is able to play.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/7/17 12:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper may be out of the concussion protocol, but he is still dealing with a nagging ankle injury. He's heading for the wrong side of questionable, which would lead the way for Michael Crabtree to have a big game in a tasty matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Cooper's practice status tomorrow will be key.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/7/17 3:37pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Patterson appears to be on track to play in Week 14, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He likely would be in the starting lineup if Amari Cooper misses another game. He has recorded seven catches and 169 yards over the last two games and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 12/7/17 3:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was likely receiving a day off and should be ready to play this week. He is coming off his first 100-yard performance of the season in Week 13 and has four touchdowns in the last four games. He can be at low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option for owners.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/6/17 5:41pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Patterson is coming off a game that saw him record a season high in receiving yards (97), while tying his season high in receptions (four), but he'll be off the radar if Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) returns to action. Even if Cooper doesn't play, Patterson won't be a reliable option with Michael Crabtree returning from suspension.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/6/17 5:27pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, but still did not return to practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, due to his ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: It's a step in the right direction but Cooper's lack of practice time could have him trending in the direction of being inactive again, so his owners will have to follow his situation closely throughout the rest of the week. If the former first-round draft pick ends up sitting, Michael Crabtree gets a boost in his first game back from suspension, while Seth Roberts and Johnny Holton should also merit consideration in deep formats.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/5/17 2:02pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) remains in the concussion protocol and is still nursing an ankle injury.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has a long road ahead in order to be able to play this weekend. If he is unable to go for a second straight week then Michael Crabtree, who returns from suspension, will have WR1 upside. Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson would also demand starter consideration.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 7:50am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) is described as hopeful for Week 14 with the ankle injury more relevant than the concussion.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been a bust in fantasy, but he is immensely talented. If he was dropped in your league, he's worth picking up.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 2:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Dec. 4. The team also waived DT Darius Latham.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree returns after his one-game suspension and will be in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He should see a solid amount of targets during the game and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/4/17 3:23pm ET

    Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said he hopes WR Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) will be able to play in Week 14, but the team will monitor him during the week to see how he progresses.

    Huddle Up: Cooper needs to pass his concussion tests and be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so owners should monitor the situation during the week. He has recorded a touchdown in each of his last two games but has been held to under 60 yards in nine of his 11 games this season. Owners may want to look for other options for their lineups this week.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 12:11pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is officially active for the team's Week 13 game.

    Huddle Up: Patterson should have a big role in the passing game with Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper out of the lineup. He can be at least a flex option in most fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup.

  • Johnny Holton - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 8:22pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Johnny Holton racked up three receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 13 against the New York Giants. He also lost a fumble.

    Huddle Up: Holton made an acrobatic catch, landing on his back and rolling into the end zone for his score. He saw a team-high seven targets with Amari Cooper (concussion) sidelined and Michael Crabtree suspended, but he'll be back to a minor role again in Week 14 with Crabtree due back.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/3/17 8:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson was good for four receptions and 97 yards on his four targets in Week 13 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Patterson had a golden opportunity to show what he could do with Amari Cooper sidelined due to concussion and Michael Crabtree suspended. Patterson could continue to have fantasy appeal if Cooper misses additional time, but the return of Crabtree in Week 14 limits Patterson's value to deeper formats again.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 12/3/17 8:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch opened the scoring with a 51-yard touchdown in the first quarter of Week 13 against the New York Giants, and he finished with 17 runs for 101 yards and the score.

    Huddle Up: Lynch has turned up the intensity lately, running for 67 or more yards in three straight outings while scoring in each of the past two, and three of the past four contests (four total). After a slow start to the season he is back as a legitimate low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play in most formats.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 12/3/17 8:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22 of his 36 pass attempts for 287 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: Carr has thrown at least one touchdown in each of his 11 games, but he has one or fewer TD strikes in seven of the past nine outings. His yardage totals have kept him in the mix as a low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/1/17 12:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the New York Giants.

    Huddle Up: As expected. With Michael Crabtree serving his one-game suspension, it leaves Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson as Derek Carr's top receivers. The biggest winner figures to be Jared Cook, however, as the Giants have been a sieve for opposing tight ends. Cook also has shown the most rapport with Cook this season of the remaining healthy players.

  • Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
    Posted 12/1/17 1:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 1, and is listed as questionable for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Patterson likely will be a starting receiver for the Raiders if he is active since Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper will not play. He is coming off a solid Week 12 performance and would have a favorable matchup this week. He could be at least a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 12/1/17 6:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook faces the New York Giants in Week 13, and the Giants have allowed an opposing tight end to score a touchdown in nine of their 11 games this season.

    Huddle Up: Cook has already been one of Oakland's steadiest weapons in the passing game, and the friendly matchup and suspension of Michael Crabtree make him a must-start TE1 in Week 13.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 11/30/17 12:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (undisclosed) was not present for the media-access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Lynch's status after practice to see if he is dealing with an injury. He has recorded three touchdowns over the last three games and would have a favorable matchup if he plays this week. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is active.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 11/30/17 1:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30, because he received a rest day, according to offensive coordinator Todd Downing.

    Huddle Up: Lynch likely will receive his normal workload this week against the New York Giants and should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 11/30/17 3:31pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) missed practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: At this point, it looks like owners should begin to prepare for life without Cooper this weekend, as it seems he's very likely to sit out Week 13. With Michael Crabtree suspended, Seth Roberts and Johnny Holton will each get the biggest upticks in usage and are both worth a look in most formats opposite a suspect Giants defense.
