Raiders' Connor Cook: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Cook faced an uphill battle for the primary backup spot behind Derek Carr throughout the offseason, and the Raiders have elected to dress EJ Manuel in Week 1. Cook's inexperience certainly played a factor in the decision, while Manuel appeared in 28 games through four seasons with the Bills before heading to Oakland.

Raiders' Connor Cook: Receives extended run Saturday against Cowboys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook completed nine of 16 pass attempts for 89 yards in Saturday's 24-20 loss to the Cowboys. He also gained two yards on his lone carry.

While Cook wasn't incredibly productive in this extended run, it is noteworthy that EJ Manuel, who had worked ahead of him during the last preseason contest, attempted just four passes. It is quite possible that the position battle could continue into Thursday's preseason finale, where Cook and Manuel could both see reps ahead of the final roster decisions.

Raiders' Connor Cook: Working as No. 3 quarterback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook worked behind fellow quarterbacks Derek Carr and EJ Manuel during Saturday's preseason loss to the Rams, completing 9-of-15 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Cook still has a solid chance at making the Raiders' final roster if he remains behind Manuel in the competition to back-up Carr, having outperformed Manuel during the team's second preseason game. Manuel has the edge in terms of experience, while Cook struggled mightily as a rookie in his first NFL start against the Texans during Oakland's season-ending playoff loss in early January. Cook projects to be the second quarterback off the bench once again during the Raiders' upcoming preseason tilt versus the Cowboys.

Raiders' Connor Cook: Predictable results against No. 1 defense Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cook completed 18 of 45 passes for 161 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions and was sacked three times in Oakland's 27-14 loss to Houston in their AFC wild-round playoff game Saturday.

Cook was in a tough spot, making his first career NFL start against the league's top-ranked defense, which led to predictable results. Oakland had just 203 yards of total offense and failed on 14 of 16 third-down attempts. The rookie was able to string together one good drive, but he missed targets all day and was hurt by some drops. The Raiders offense, so productive all season with Derek Carr steering, scored just 20 points in two games without him.

Raiders' Connor Cook: Confirmed as Saturday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Jack Del Rio confirmed Wednesday that Cook will start Saturday's AFC wild-card playoff game against the Texans, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

In the process, the 2016 fourth-rounder will become the first QB in the Super Bowl era to make his NFL starting debut in a playoff game. Cook is taking over for Matt McGloin, who started Week 17's game against the Broncos in place of the injured Derek Carr, but subsequently injured his left shoulder in that contest. Cook will square off against Brock Osweiler, who the Texans have re-installed as their No. 1 signal-caller. While it wouldn't surprise us to see Oakland run plenty Saturday, working in Cook's favor from a fantasy perspective is that he'll have a pair of reliable wideout targets at his disposal, Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
