Player News - Raiders

Date: Team: Pos:

Speaking Monday, coach Jack Del Rio said Amari Cooper has "got to find a way" to fix his issue with drops.

Drops are wildly overrated in the NFL, but sometimes they become very hard to ignore. Cooper has already been charged with six drops through three games, which is three more than any other receiver charted at Pro Football Focus. Cooper dropped four balls in the opener and has dropped one in each of the past two games. He has just 101 yards through three games and dropped only five balls all of last season. Cooper gets a tough matchup next week against Denver.

Jared Cook caught 4-of-6 passes for 43 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against Washington.

Cook was the only bright spot, scoring on a diving 21-yard touchdown in the third quarter. He has a 13/124/1 line through three games. Cook doesn’t have a streamable matchup against Denver in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 12:21 AM

Seth Roberts caught 4-of-5 passes for 20 yards in Week 3 against the Redskins.

The four catches were a season high. Roberts struggled with blocking and had multiple penalties. The Raiders surprisingly gave Roberts an extension despite two years of team control. Roberts could have an expanded Week 4 role if Michael Crabtree (chest) misses time.
Sep 25 - 12:06 AM

Amari Cooper caught 1-of-5 targets for six yards in Week 3 against Washington.

Cooper was targeted on Derek Carr’s game-opening interception. He was shut down in a game Derek Carr threw for just 118 yards. Cooper has struggled the last two weeks and has six drops in first three games. He could be in for another rough game with a Denver matchup in Week 4.
Sep 25 - 12:04 AM

DeAndre Washington caught 5-of-6 targets for 24 yards in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Washington caught a few dumpoffs on the final drive of the game. He played behind Jalen Richard early, and isn't worth owning as a handcuff.
Sep 24 - 11:53 PM

Jalen Richard had two carries for four yards in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Richard was a non-factor with Oakland struggling to move their offense. He left with an injury late and could miss practice time next week.
Sep 24 - 11:50 PM

Marshawn Lynch had six carries for 18 yards in Week 3 against Washington.

Lynch didn’t have much of a chance with the Raiders playing from behind the entire game. Oakland managed just 128 total yards of total offense. Lynch got off to a strong start with 90-plus yards or a touchdown in his first two games, but has a shy away matchup with the Broncos in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 11:48 PM

Derek Carr completed 18-of-30 passes for 118 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Week 3 against the Redskins.

It was a disaster for Carr, who threw two first-half interceptions. He couldn’t get anything going with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, leading the Raiders to just seven first downs. Carr had been mistake-free going into Sunday night, so this should go down as one of his worst games. Carr has another tough matchup with Denver in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 11:39 PM

Michael Crabtree suffered a chest injury in Week 3 against the Redskins.

Crabtree took a big hit on a third down pass in the fourth quarter. X-rays were negative, but he's done for the night. Crabtree had just one catch for seven yards before exiting.

Sean Smith (neck, shoulder) is active for Week 3 against Washington.

Smith was expected to play despite his questionable tag. It's the first time he's been in the lineup with both David Amerson and Gareon Conley. Oakland's inactives are QB Connor Cook, OT David Sharpe, OT Jyland Ware, DE Jihad Ward, S Erik Harris, CB Dexter McDonald, and DT Darius Latham.
Sep 24 - 7:12 PM

Jared Cook is not listed on the Raiders' Week 3 injury report.

Cook was "limited" early in the week by a shoulder injury, but he'll be out there against the Redskins. Washington was creamed by tight ends in Weeks 1-2.
Sep 22 - 3:54 PM

Sean Smith (neck, shoulder) is questionable for Week 3 against the Redskins.

Smith should be fine despite the questionable tag after putting in a full practice on Friday. First-round rookie Gareon Conley started opposite David Amerson with Smith sidelined in Week 2.
Sep 22 - 3:27 PM

Amari Cooper is not listed on the Raiders' Week 3 injury report.

Cooper was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices with some sort of knee ailment, which was the case in Weeks 1 and 2, as well. Just as he was in Weeks 1 and 2, Cooper will be all systems go for Week 3 against Washington.
Sep 22 - 3:21 PM

Sean Smith (neck, shoulder) was limited in practice on Thursday.

After missing Week 2, Smith was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. Gareon Conley made his NFL debut against the Jets and may get some extra work again this week against the Redskins.
Sep 21 - 7:22 PM

Amari Cooper (knee) was limited in practice again on Thursday.

He was limited on Wednesday for the second week in a row, but last Thursday he was a full participant. Cooper has been on the injury report for most of this month, but he will be out there Sunday against the Redskins. It'll be a subpar matchup against Josh Norman, but his fantasy owners should still have him locked in their lineups.
