Player Outlook

This is a big season for Amari Cooper, who is entering his third year in the NFL. We hope a breakout campaign happens for him since he's been good through the first two years of his career, but not great. He was the No. 22 Fantasy receiver in standard leagues as a rookie in 2015 with 72 catches for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns on 130 targets, and he improved as a sophomore in 2016 with 83 catches for 1,153 yards and five touchdowns on 132 targets, which made him the No. 14 receiver. Teammate Michael Crabtree posted better stats than Cooper both seasons, but Cooper has much more upside. He just needs to be more consistent. In 2016, Cooper had six games with double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league, but he also had seven games with six points or less. We expect him to improve this season, especially with quarterback Derek Carr fine for the start of training camp after breaking his leg late last season. Cooper is worth drafting as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy receiver in Round 2 in all formats.

Player News
  • Raiders' Amari Cooper: Appears quite healthy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cooper caught three of four targets for 46 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams. Cooper showed no signs of the leg injury that caused him to miss at least six practices over the past couple weeks. He arguably had the best play in a first half full of highlights, high-pointing a Derek Carr pass in triple coverage to pick up 31 yards on a 3rd-and-10. Cooper also was the only player to draw more than two targets while Carr was in the game.

  • Cooper (leg) returned to practice Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. After missing six straight practices, Cooper was back on the field Tuesday, and while the Raiders' starting wideout sported a compression sleeve over his left leg, Gehlken encouragingly relayed that in his return "Amari Cooper look(ed) like Amari Cooper." Given his current lofty ADP, getting a proper return on investment for Cooper -- who's on the heels of a 2016 season in which he caught 83 passes (on 132 targets) for 1,153 yards and five touchdowns -- hinges on his ability to find the end zone more often, a plausible outcome tied to quarterback Derek Carr's continued development.

  • Raiders' Amari Cooper: Sidelined Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cooper (leg) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Coming as no surprise, Cooper will take a seat as he continues to work his way back from the leg injury that's hindered him the past couple of weeks. It's unlikely fellow wideout Michael Crabtree plays much either, so Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson should see some quality time with the first-team offense Saturday.

  • Raiders' Amari Cooper: Remains absent
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cooper (leg) isn't practicing Wednesday, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Bothered by the injury since at least last Tuesday, the third-year wideout seemingly hasn't practiced at all since Thursday, making him unlikely to play in Saturday's preseason opener against Arizona. The Raiders have avoided commenting on Cooper's injury, but there's been nothing from the media suggesting it's serious.
