  Raiders | Future unclear for Mario Edwards    Tue Feb 2, 08:57 PM

Oakland Raiders DE Mario Edwards Jr. (neck) has a separate issue that his neck injury revealed that could be genetic, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. There are more tests to come.

Footballguys view: Neck injuries are always tricky to deal with--especially if there's a problem that is genetic. A second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Edwards showed well as a rookie both as a run-stuffer and pass-rusher. In 14 games, Edwards finished the 2015 season with 33 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 2 passes defensed.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper impressed with toughness    Thu Jan 28, 12:44 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (foot) was nearly shut down in December due to a foot injury. General manager Reggie McKenzie said Wednesday, Dec. 27, that he was impressed how the rookie toughed it out and finished the season.

Footballguys view: Cooper is the real deal. Fantasy owners should be falling all over themselves to add Cooper in drafts next year. He could be a set-it-and-forget-it WR1 in his second season.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was targeted a career high 146 times in 2015, while tying a career high in catches (85) and touchdowns (9). His 922 receiving yards were the second most of his career for a single season.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray coming off career year    Mon Jan 18, 02:07 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray gained 1,865 total yards, including over 1,000 rushing yards, and six touchdowns this year in his second season in the NFL. Murray said the 1,000-yard season is exciting, but he knows there's a lot more for him to do.

Footballguys view: Murray wasn't always able to get the running game going, but a robust passing game helped open things up for him. He should be a third or fourth round pick in redraft leagues this summer.

  Raiders | Derek Carr in elite company    Thu Dec 24, 01:39 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would have the second-most two-touchdown games for a player in his first two seasons with two touchdown tosses Thursday, Dec. 24, against the San Diego Chargers. He would tie Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning for second place in the category.

Footballguys view: Carr is a good bet to put up QB1 numbers against San Diego this weekend, so clearly we think there is a good chance he will get those two touchdowns.
