Jared Cook caught 2-of-4 passes for 17 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

It was a rough night for Cook, who struggled with penalties and drops. He had a touchdown overturned on offensive pass interference. Cook has been streaky with under 30 yards four of the last five games. He's a boom-or-bust streamer for Week 16 against the Eagles.

Seth Roberts caught 3-of-5 passes for 52 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

Roberts led Oakland in receiving on a night Derek Carr threw for just 171 yards. His only highlight was a 28-yard catch on the opening play of the fourth quarter. Roberts has seen more snaps the last three weeks, but it hasn't led to fantasy value. Even if Amari Cooper doesn't return, Roberts should be avoided in Week 16.
Dec 18 - 12:28 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 7-of-17 passes for 39 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against Dallas.

Crabtree was targeted heavily with Amari Cooper out. He got most of his catches on check downs, though he drew a deep pass interference call late that put Oakland in position to win. Both of Crabtree's touchdowns were goal-line passes from Derek Carr. With Cooper not a lock to return next week, Crabtree is a WR1 for a matchup with the Eagles.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 16 times for 76 yards and caught 3-of-4 passes for 16 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

Lynch was shut down early, rushing for just 26 yards at the half. He came on late, but was held without a touchdown despite multiple red-zone trips. Lynch has put together a strong second half, rushing for 60-plus yards or a TD in seven straight games. He'll remain an RB2 for Week 16 against the Eagles.

Derek Carr completed 21-of-38 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Week 15 against Dallas.

Carr continued his decline, struggling to get anything going early before making a comeback in the second half. Both of his touchdowns were goal-line passes to Michael Crabtree. Despite the TDs, Carr ended the game with an epic fail, fumbling out of the end-zone with 31-seconds remaining for a touchback. It effectively puts an end to Oakland's playoff chances. Carr will remain just a QB2 for a matchup with the Eagles in Week 16.
Dec 18 - 12:02 AM

Raiders LT Donald Penn was forced from Week 15 against Dallas with a foot injury.

He's done for the night. Penn was injured after getting rolled up on in the first quarter. Vadal Alexander replaced Penn, with Marshall Newhouse moving to left tackle.
Dec 17 - 9:10 PM

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is inactive for Week 15 against Dallas.

Amerson wasn't expected to play after being listed doubtful. He'll miss his seventh straight game. Also inactive for the Raiders are WR Amari Cooper, QB Connor Cook, DE Mario Edwards Jr, TE Clive Walford, OT David Sharpe and OT Jylan Ware.
Dec 17 - 7:13 PM

Jared Cook (wrist) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

He finished the week with a full practice after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. Cook led the team with 75 yards in last week's loss to Kansas City and should play a big role again with Amari Cooper (ankle) sidelined this week.

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

He missed his second straight practice on Friday. Apparently Amerson suffered a setback to his sprained foot earlier this week. He's expected to miss his seventh straight game and at this point, it's fair to wonder if we've seen the last of him in 2017. Dexter McDonald and Sean Smith will start at cornerback against Dallas.
Dec 15 - 3:41 PM

Raiders placed S Obi Melifonwu (hip) on injured reserve, ending his season.

It's been a rough first season for Melifonwu, who underwent knee surgery in August and just had a second operation on his hip. Antonio Hamilton, who had been out with a knee injury, will be activated from I.R. in the corresponding move.
Dec 15 - 3:29 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) is out for Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Cooper lasted just 14 snaps before aggravating his sprained ankle last week against Kansas City. He's week to week. Michael Crabtree should be in for a big workload Sunday while tight end Jared Cook could also have an expanded role.
Dec 15 - 3:21 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to miss Week 15.

Cooper remained sidelined at Thursday's practice. It's hard to see how he suits up after aggravating his injury last Sunday against the Chiefs. A lost season is ending in lost fashion for the disappointing third-year pro.
Dec 14 - 2:48 PM

Jared Cook (wrist) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's the first time Cook has been on the injury report since Week 3. The limited practice suggests he shouldn't miss any time. Cook is a back-end TE1 for Week 15 against Dallas.
Dec 13 - 7:19 PM

Raiders placed LB Cory James (knee) on injured reserve.

James has been dealing with knee issues most of the season. He hadn't been active since Week 12. James struggled in his first year as a full-time starter, grading near the bottom of PFF's ratings. The Raiders should upgrade on him this offseason.
Dec 13 - 5:20 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Cooper played 14 snaps last week against the Chiefs before aggravating his ankle issue. The Raiders were aggressive to play him through the high-ankle sprain. Cooper is unlikely to be a factor the rest of the fantasy season.
