  Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson logs full practice    Thu Dec 14, 07:38 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was a full participant in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Patterson had some nice games for a few weeks but fell on his face against Kansas City last week. We expect similar struggles against Dallas this week, especially as Jared Cook and Michael Crabtree likely become the focus. We would avoid Patterson completely this week.

  Raiders | Jared Cook limited in Thursday's practice    Thu Dec 14, 07:18 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (wrist) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Despite a terrible game by the Raiders against Kansas City, Cook played well. We think he should be solid this week again versus Dallas, and is a nice TE2 start with TE1 upside.

  Raiders | Marshawn Lynch sitting Thursday    Thu Dec 14, 03:09 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: The rest of the offense has struggled without Amari Cooper and the Cowboys now have Sean Lee back. Lynch was able to make fantasy owners happy with a touchdown last week, but we don't feel that will happen against Dallas. Considering him a borderline RB2/RB3 option this week.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper unlikely to play     Thu Dec 14, 03:05 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was held out of practice Thursday, Dec. 14, and is not expected to play in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Cooper, much like the Raiders' season, has taken a turn for the worse. There's some real speculation that he will be down for the count for the rest of the season.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper unable to practice    Wed Dec 13, 07:39 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners just can't trust Cooper, especially in the fantasy playoffs. Even if he does play against the Cowboys we couldn't plug him in as anything more than a 'what the heck' flex.

  Raiders | No practice for Amari Cooper    Wed Dec 13, 03:26 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was not able to practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can't really trust Cooper at this point. He's likely staying on your bench in Week 15 even if he does play against the Cowboys on Sunday.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper active for Week 14    Sun Dec 10, 11:27 AM

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is active for Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cooper is a boom/bust option. It's not certain he'll play his normal number of snaps or play at his normal level, but normal has been disappointing when it comes to Cooper this year - except for against the Chiefs earlier this year, when he posted an 11/210/2 line.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper hopeful of playing Sunday    Sun Dec 10, 09:58 AM

  Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson likely to play    Sun Dec 10, 09:53 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) is expected to play in Week 14's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Patterson will still only be the #3/#4 receiver with Amari Cooper active, but his play after the catch could help Derek Carr's upside in Kansas City today.

  Raiders | Oakland hoping Amari Cooper plays    Fri Dec 8, 09:10 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) looked pretty good during a limited practice appearance Friday, Dec. 8, according to coaches, and the Raiders are holding out hope that Cooper can play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Cooper was limited in practice on Friday and we could see him as a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Last time he faced Kansas City, Cooper went off for over 200 yards receiving. At less than 100 percent, Cooper is a risky boom/bust play for fantasy owners...if he plays in Week 14.

  Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson limited in practice    Fri Dec 8, 04:56 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for the Week 14 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Patterson would be the replacement for Amari Cooper if he can't go, although he might not be much healthier than Cooper right now.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper questionable for Week 14    Fri Dec 8, 04:56 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cooper is playing an early game, so you won't have to agonize over this one. If he goes, he has a massive ceiling considering his 11-210-2 line in the first matchup. If he is active, he will be tough to bench.

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) is not expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, according to a source.

  Raiders | Cordarrelle Patterson limited Thursday    Thu Dec 7, 06:37 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: We would like to see Patterson get in a full practice to have more sleeper appeal, but with Amari Cooper looking unlikely to play, Patterson should start against a Chiefs defense that is vulnerable to the pass and big plays. Patterson has almost broken a long touchdown in each of the last two weeks and could come through in what looks to be another shootout like the 31-30 matchup between these two teams earlier this year.

  Raiders | No practice for Amari Cooper    Thu Dec 7, 03:06 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Footballguys view: Right now it looks like Cooper isn't playing, which is a hit to this offense, especially with Michael Crabtree suspended. This looks like two weeks in a row where you'll be without his services and while he has scored touchdowns two weeks in a row, his production has largely been disappointing for Fantasy GMs this year.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper still in protocol    Tue Dec 5, 05:02 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) remains in the concussion protocol and is still nursing an ankle injury.

Footballguys view: All reports indicate the ankle problem is worse than the concussion. We could see Cooper cleared from the concussion protocol some time this week. We'll be monitoring his practice status closely before the Raiders big divisional battle against the Chiefs on Sunday.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper's status uncertain    Mon Dec 4, 06:23 PM

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said he hopes WR Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) will be able to play in Week 14, but the team will monitor him during the week to see how he progresses.

Footballguys view: There have been previous reports that suggest Cooper is on the right track. His concussion is not the more major issue as it's the ankle injury that is most problematic. We'll get an update on Cooper's status as the week goes on. He's got a juicy matchup against the Chiefs in Week 14.

  Raiders | Michael Crabtree back on roster    Mon Dec 4, 05:33 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Dec. 4. The team also waived DT Darius Latham.

Footballguys view: Crabtree is back in action this week, just in time for a divisional game against the Chiefs. When he's on the field, Crabtree has WR1 upside for fantasy owners.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper trending upward    Mon Dec 4, 10:50 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle, concussion) is described as hopeful for Week 14 with the ankle injury more relevant than the concussion.

Footballguys view: The ankle injury has had plenty of time to heal, and the Raiders could certainly use Cooper back in a huge matchup against the Chiefs in Week 14. Both teams are 6-6, and Cooper crushed the Chiefs back in Week 7 with 11 catches for 210 yards and two touchdowns. It will greatly help to get Michael Crabtree back in action after his one-game suspension. We'll know more about Cooper's status later in the week.
