    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.

  • Posted: 12/14/2016 7:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant for practice Wednesday, Dec. 14, due to a shoulder ailment.

    Huddle Up: Cooper ripped the Chargers secondary for 138 yards and a touchdown on six receptions and 12 targets in the first meeting back on Oct. 9, so fantasy owners are hopeful of a repeat performance in the second meeting in San Diego this weekend.

  • Posted: 12/8/2016 9:55pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper finished with five catches on 10 targets for 29 yards in a 21-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: It was an off night for the entire offense, and Cooper still led the team in receiving. He should be back in the WR1 mix against the Chargers in Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 10:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted two catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: If not for the stat line salvaging 37-yard touchdown in the second half, Cooper's performance was mostly underwhelming. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 10:42pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted four receptions for just 22 yards on seven targets in the Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: It was a brutally disappointing stat line for Cooper and his fantasy owners against a poor Carolina pass defense, especially in a game where his offense scored 35 points with most of the production through the air. He'll look to rebound in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 9:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was quiet for most of the Week 11 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Nov. 21, in Mexico City. He had three grabs for 22 yards until shaking free for a 35-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter for the game-winning score.

    Huddle Up: Cooper's yardage totals have been mediocre in three of his past four games, but he still has managed a touchdown in two of the past three outings. He remains a must-start fantasy option, and he faces a favorable matchup in Week 12 against the shaky pass defense of the Carolina Panthers.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 4:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been targeted at least eight times in seven of the nine games this season and has three 100-yard games in the last five games. He can be a No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/19/2016 12:57pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 19, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He has recorded at least 129 yards in three of his last five games and should be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 11/18/2016 7:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) remained a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 18.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has remained an elite contributor despite the back issue, and he should be deployed as a WR1 in Week 11 against Houston.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 9:01pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been able to play through the back injury and continues to produce. He is a WR1 against the Texans in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 4:54pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) is active for the Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was questionable for the game, but is active. That's good. However, he is still facing the league's No. 1 pass defense, albeit without the injured Aqib Talib.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 7:01am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) is expected to be active for Week 9's game against the Denver Broncos, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report. Although he has a difficult matchup against the Denver secondary, he should still be considered a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 5:28pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was limited during practice and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Cooper probably has a decent chance of playing against the Denver Broncos, but owners will need to check the inactive list before deciding on their lineup. He will he facing a tough defense but can still be a No. 1 or No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 7:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was a limited participant at practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Cooper already has a really tough matchup ahead for Week 9 opposite the Broncos' elite defense, and although he'll be entering a little banged up, he's still someone owners need to keep in the lineup no matter what. This past weekend, the sophomore wide-out registered career highs in receptions (12) and receiving yards (173), to go along with a touchdown, though owners shouldn't be surprised if he's limited to WR2 production for his next outing.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 4:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (back) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play this week, but owners should monitor the situation. He has posted at least 129 yards in three of the last four weeks and has two touchdowns during that span. He should be considered a No. 1 receiver as long as he is healthy.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 4:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper racked up 12 receptions for 173 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was targeted 15 times, and his reception total and yardage total were each career bests.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has 129 or more receiving yards in three of the past four games, and he has hit double digits in receptions in two of the past three outings. He remains an obvious WR1 in all fantasy formats, but Week 9 might be a bit more difficult against the sturdy defense of the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 7:05pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 8, a team allowing 237.5 yards per game with 10 touchdowns in six games. Cooper leads the Raiders with 40 catches and 614 yards. He has also combined with WR Michael Crabtree with 375 yards and 22 first downs on third down, both first among all NFL duos.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has three games with 129 or more yards this season, but he also has had a couple of games where he has disappeared, especially Week 7 in Jacksonville when he had a season-low 29 yards. You can expect a solid game in Tampa Bay in Week 8 against the NFL's 20th-ranked pass defense. He remains a solid low-end WR1 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 8:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper had four receptions for just 29 yards in the Week 7 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Cooper had a pair of 100-yard games over the past two outings, so this was a big disappointment against a Jacksonville pass defense which is in the lower half of the league statistically. With just one touchdown through six games, Cooper should be treated more like a WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 8 at Tampa Bay.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 8:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper was targeted nine times in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he picked up just four receptions for 62 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is averaging five receptions for game, but his yardage totals have decreased in each game this season. He was drafted as a bona fide WR1 in most fantasy formats, but is looking more like a WR2 so far.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 9:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is averaging 18.9 yards per catch this season, which ranks second among players with at least 10 receptions.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is a fantasy star in the making at the receiver position, and he is no worse than a WR2 against Tennessee in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 7:25pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted six receptions for 137 yards in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. He was targeted a game-high 11 times. He also hauled in a two-point conversion reception.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was targeted as more of a WR2 on draft day in most fantasy leagues, but he has WR1 ability as he continues to improve. Derek Carr looked to him early and often, trusting him in crunch time the most. He is off to a great start to the 2016 season, and faces a favorable matchup in Week 2 against an Atlanta Falcons team that allowed four passing scores in the opener.

  • Posted: 8/9/2016 3:30pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said a foot injury nearly shut down his 2015 rookie season that ended in him failing to top 20 receiving yards in three of his four December games. Cooper said Monday, Aug. 8, in an interview with KGMZ in San Francisco, he was not himself and everything about his play was affected. Cooper noted his inability to create separation off the line and out of breaks because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Thanks in large part to his late slump, Cooper finished 23rd among fantasy WRs a year ago, but we see a big leap and increased production in Year 2, ranking him as a low-end WR1.

  • Posted: 7/25/2016 8:42am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has a better idea of where QB Derek Carr wants to go with the football this season, and Carr said he is able to throw the ball to Cooper earlier because he knows where Cooper will be. Cooper has appeared more relaxed this season, and retired WR Jerry Rice said Cooper's attitude will help him avoid the drops that hurt him at times as a rookie.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like things are lining up for Cooper to take the next step, building on a solid rookie season and teaming with Carr to present one of the league's up-and-coming tandems.
