Cooper caught three passes on six targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers. He finishes up his 2017 campaign with 48 receptions for 680 yards and seven touchdowns on 96 targets in 14 games.
Cooper's fantasy performance in Week 17 was salvaged by an 87-yard touchdown reception, marking his second 60-plus yard score in the last two weeks. The third-year receiver failed to surpass the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time in his career during the 2017 campaign, but he found the end zone seven times despite dealing with a variety of minor injuries throughout the latter portion of the season. The entire Raiders offense was a mess at times as they scored less than 20 points in 10 of 16 contests, but the core of quarterback Derek Carr, running back Marshawn Lynch, Cooper and fellow receiver Michael Crabtree is slated to return in 2018 during what will be a bounce-back effort.
Cooper (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers after practicing fully Friday.
Cooper returned to action in Week 16's loss to the Eagles, logging a TD on a 63-yard deep ball, while finishing with three catches for 66 yards overall. The 2015 first-rounder has found the end zone six times in 13 games this season, so he has a shot to help fantasy players in Week 17, but note that he could draw shadow coverage from standout cornerback Casey Hayward.
Cooper (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
After sitting out two of the previous three games, Cooper suited up for Monday's 19-10 loss to the Eagles and provided the Raiders' lone touchdown on a 63-yard deep bomb. He was otherwise held in check, finishing with three catches for 66 yards and the aforementioned score on four targets while handling a limited snap share (64 percent). Wednesday's practice participation puts Cooper on track to play in Week 17, but he could draw shadow coverage from standout cornerback Casey Hayward, as was the case when Cooper caught five passes for 28 yards in a Week 6 loss to the Chargers. There's also no assurance Cooper returns to his usual snap share upwards of 90 percent.
Cooper caught three of four targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 19-10 loss to the Eagles.
Cooper's performance was buoyed by his 63-yard touchdown bomb during the first half, marking his longest play of this season. That play alone allowed Cooper to top 60 yards for just the third time this term. Although an ankle injury has slowed him lately, Cooper's return Monday will presumably leave him available for this weekend's season finale versus the Chargers, but with the Raiders now out of playoff contention, his status may still be worth monitoring.
Cooper (ankle) is listed as active Monday at Philadelphia.
Cooper has missed two of the past three games due to a left ankle injury. Here's to hope he lasts longer than his last appearance Week 14 at Kansas City, where he was blanked on 15 offensive snaps. If so, Cooper could strike against an Eagles defense that has given up 182 receiving yards per game and six touchdown catches to wideouts over the last three outings.
