Amari Cooper - WRPosted 11/15/18 9:02am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has received 27.4 percent of the team's targets over his first two games with the squad. In Weeks 1-8 with the Oakland Raiders, Cooper's target share was 12.2 percent.
Huddle Up: It's been a good change of scenery for Cooper's fantasy owners, and next up is a matchup with the struggling Falcons secondary. Keep Cooper locked in as a WR2.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 11/14/18 11:29am ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is questionable to play in Week 11 as he is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee.
Huddle Up: Hopes for Nelson producing sans Amari Cooper have quickly faded. He has not managed more than two catches in his last four outings. If you can help it, don't start any Oakland wide receiver.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 11/14/18 12:35pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) will miss a couple of weeks and could be out longer after injuring his posterior cruciate ligament last week, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Bryant has been a non-factor even with Amari Cooper out of the picture. It's safe to drop him at this point unless you're in a deeper league and need the depth.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 11/14/18 4:38pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Nelson is considered questionable for Week 11, but owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He has been struggling over the last month and can be benched this week even if he is active for the game.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/14/18 4:41pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (hip) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Martin has received at least 10 carries in each of the last three games and has rushed for at least 60 yards in two of the games. He should have some success against the Arizona Cardinals and can be at least a flex option in standard leagues.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 11/11/18 3:45pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (quadriceps) left the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers due to a quadriceps injury.
Huddle Up: When healthy, Nelson is worth using as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. Check back during the week and see his practice status before deciding upon him for Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/11/18 7:35pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed 15 times for 61 yards in the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added three catches for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: Martin had a season high in total scrimmage yards in this one, but he still has failed to find the end zone in all nine of this games this season. He remains nothing more than a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 11/11/18 7:32pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 24-of-37 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Carr has been blanked in the touchdown category in back-to-back games, and three of the past four outings. Head coach Jon Gruden has publicly supported Carr, but the team is 1-8 and the quarterback is not doing much. Could a change be coming at some point? It may, or may not, but Carr's fantasy appeal is at an all-time low.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 11/11/18 7:50pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard rushed three times for seven yards in the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers and he added five grabs for 52 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Richard is a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues, as he has three or more grabs and at least 38 receiving yards in seven consecutive outings. He has minimal appeal in standard play, however. The Raiders battle the Cardinals in Week 11.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 11/11/18 7:47pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook finished with four grabs for 52 yards on nine targets in the Week 10 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Cook has two or more grabs in each of his nine outings this season, but his yardage totals have really yo-yoed this season. Sometimes he has TE1 ability, other times he barely registers as a TE2. The Raiders will face the Cardinals in Week 11, a team which shut down Kansas City's Travis Kelce pretty well on Sunday.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 11/11/18 9:16pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his 10 targets for 75 yards in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Cooper was among the best receivers in the league creating separation this season prior to his trade from the Oakland Raiders, and it has carried over to his new team. Of course, it didn't hurt his cause this week that the Eagles were shorthanded in the secondary. While Dak Prescott hasn't exactly been dazzling this season, he seems to have found a quick connection with Cooper, drawing 18 targets in two games. Look for more of the same and high-end WR3 production again in Week 11 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 11/11/18 11:21pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant (knee) sustained a knee injury during the team's Week 10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. The injury is believed to be a possible torn PCL, though the team hopes Bryant won't need surgery. He's set to undergo an MRI to clarify the nature of the injury, but regardless of the result Bryant is expected to miss some time.
Huddle Up: Well, if you plucked Bryant off waivers with the hope he'd get some of Amari Cooper's looks that appears to have come to an abrupt end. Unless the MRI reveals something extremely minor it's on to the next one.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/9/18 2:07pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 9, but is not on the injury report for Week 10.
Huddle Up: Martin probably will receive most of the carries in the running game but will be facing a solid Los Angeles Chargers defense. He can be a possible flex option in deeper standard leagues but is not a must-start option.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/8/18 4:50pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (hip) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 8.
Huddle Up: Odds are Martin will be fine for Sunday, but he's a bit of a risk for owners who elect to deploy him in starting lineups. Oakland has been so bad lately that it's possible they get blown out again, which would take away from Martin's snaps. He's a lower-end RB2 option this weekend as a result.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/7/18 5:25pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: Martin has received at least 10 carries in each of the last two games but was held to 49 yards in the last game. He will continue to receive a majority of the carries but may only be a flex option in standard leagues this week against a solid Los Angeles Chargers defense.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 11/5/18 12:40pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper and the Cowboys have already discussed a contract extension. Executive vice president Stephen Jones said he ultimately believes an extension will be achieved. 'We feel like he was worth the No. 1 [draft pick], and I think part of making it worth it is that we eventually sign him to an extension.'
Huddle Up: Jones is right, if they only have Cooper for half a season then it would be a waste of a first-round pick. How long the potential extension will be remains to be seen, but Cooper has the ability to be the Cowboys' next Dez Bryant for years to come if he plays to his full potential. How he is used tonight will be a good indication of how Dallas will use him the rest of the year.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 11/5/18 8:39pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper finished with five receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 loss against the Tennessee Titans in his team debut.
Huddle Up: Cooper, who was targeted eight times, is a great addition for a Dallas offense in desperate need of an injection. Once he understands the playbook more and jells with Dak Prescott better he is going to be a solid fantasy option again. He'll try and do more in Week 10 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 11/3/18 6:57pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper will play a significant role when he makes his team debut against the Tennessee Titans in Week 9. 'We're not trying to ease him in,' offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said.
Huddle Up: Cooper should immediately become the go-to target for Dak Prescott. It remains to be seen if he can return to the WR2 form he showed in his first couple of years in Oakland, but Cooper has more than enough upside to use as a WR3 against Tennessee.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/1/18 5:55pm ET
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (wrist) returned to action Thursday, Nov. 1, against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Luckily, Martin was only briefly on the sidelines and doesn't appear hampered by the injury. Hopefully, he can resume providing RB2 value for the duration of the contest.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/1/18 5:40pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin (wrist) is being evaluated inside the medical tent after coming out in the first quarter of the team's Week 9 matchup Thursday, Nov. 1, against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: No word yet on the severity of the injury but this is something no fantasy owner wants to see on the first drive of the game. Jalen Richard stands to benefit the most for as long as Martin is sidelined.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 11/1/18 8:22pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught two passes on three targets for 16 yards in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Nelson now has a grand total of five catches for 36 yards combined over the last three games, and with the Raiders seemingly imploding as a team, there might not be a light at the end of the tunnel. Don't worry about hanging on to Nelson.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 11/1/18 8:16pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed 11 times for 49 yards and caught one pass for 20 yards in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Martin remained the lead back, but he became a non-factor as the Raiders fell further and further behind. Oakland's porous defense is going to cap his upside, but Martin still has some flex appeal based on his role in the offense.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 11/1/18 8:13pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 16 of his 22 passes for 171 yards and rushed three times for five yards in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: It was the same old story for Carr, who completed a solid percentage of his throws but was unable to produce many points. He isn't even worthy of being a fantasy backup at this point.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 11/1/18 8:27pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook caught both of his targets for 20 yards in a 34-3 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9.
Huddle Up: Cook has cooled off after a hot start, and he has been held to 20 yards or less in three of his last four games. If you have been using Cook, you may be better of cutting him loose and trying some streaming options to fill your tight end spot.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 10/28/18 8:51am ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has been told that he is the club's quarterback now and for the foreseeable future, according to multiple sources.
Huddle Up: The 27-year-old three-time Pro Bowler is experiencing the worst season of his career, with 1,783 passing yards, seven touchdowns and eight interceptions through his first six games. He should be viewed as nothing more than a QB2 in all fantasy formats.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 10/28/18 6:49pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard rushed twice for 14 yards and caught eight passes for 50 yards in a 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Richard came into Week 8 averaging more than five catches per game, and his role in the passing attack gives him some flex appeal in PPR formats.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 10/28/18 6:44pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed 13 times for 75 yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in a 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Martin ran well in the loss, and with Marshawn Lynch out for at least most of the regular season, Martin could be a solid flex option in the second half.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 10/28/18 6:32pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 28 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for a touchdown in a 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Carr continues to complete more than 70 percent of his passes, but this is one of the few times he has been able to put the ball in the end zone multiple times. He is still a QB2, at best.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 10/28/18 6:59pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook caught four passes on five targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in a 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8 after being held to 30 yards in his previous two games combined.
Huddle Up: Despite a couple of off weeks, Cook has a steady role in the Oakland passing attack, which is more than a lot of tight ends on other teams can say.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 10/28/18 6:53pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught one pass on four targets for 14 yards in a 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.
Huddle Up: Nelson was a non-factor in the loss, and he has managed just three catches for 20 yards over the last two games and has been held below 50 yards in four straight. It's tough to trust Nelson at this point.
