Jalen Richard - RBPosted 4/10/19 5:08pm ET
Oakland Raiders restricted free-agent RB Jalen Richard signed a new contract with the Raiders Wednesday, April 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Richard likely will be used as a receiver out of the backfield this upcoming season and could be a possible flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 3/30/19 10:32am ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has not started contract extension talks with the Cowboys at this point, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cooper played very well after being traded to the Cowboys and posted 725 yards and six touchdowns in nine games after the trade. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game for Dallas and can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/26/19 9:35am ET
New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook will sign a 2-year, $15.5 million contract with the team Tuesday, March 25. Cook will receive a guaranteed $8 million in his first year of the deal.
Huddle Up: Cook posted career receiving highs across the board last season with the Raiders, catching 68-of-101 targets for 896 yards and six TDs to finish fifth among fantasy tight ends. Even though the Saints have a few more passing-game weapons than last season's Raiders, Cook's fantasy ceiling is just as high as the Saints have been searching for a reliable, full-time tight end since Jimmy Graham's departure after the 2014 season.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 3/25/19 1:49pm ET
Free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch (Raiders) will make a decision on whether or not to retire following the NFL Draft, according to Oakland Raiders general manager Mike Mayock. The Raiders have already said they would welcome Lynch back.
Huddle Up: Lynch turns 33 years old in April and is coming off injuries to his groin and core that caused him to miss 10 games last year, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him hang up the cleats. There is value to be had in Oakland's backfield, but right now it's one to stay away from in the fantasy realm.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/21/19 7:45am ET
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) is expected to sign with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 21.
Huddle Up: Cook had a big year last year, and he could be in line for a bigger one in the Saints' offense. He'll be a low-end TE1 in fantasy with the Saints.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/20/19 4:56pm ET
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) is close to an agreement with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cook is coming off the best season of his career but would have a chance to improve on those stats with the Saints. He likely would have a solid role in the Saints passing game and likely would be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/18/19 7:35am ET
Free-agent WR Jordy Nelson (Raiders) is visiting the Seattle Seahawks Monday, March 18.
Huddle Up: Nelson still has some PPR WR4 chops in fantasy, but he'll be an inconsistent contributor.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 3/14/19 2:09pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson was released Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Nelson was no longer needed after the team added Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams this offseason, but he did post 739 yards and three touchdowns this past season. He should receive interest from some teams during free agency but is no longer a must-start option in fantasy leagues. Nelson could be a No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his new team.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 3/13/19 4:39pm ET
Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Raiders) is scheduled to meet with the New Orleans Saints Thursday, March 14, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cook is coming off a career year and is the top tight end available in free-agency. He likely would have a solid role in the passing game if he joins the Saints and would be a No. 1 fantasy tight end in all leagues.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 3/6/19 10:05am ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would welcome the addition of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, in the event Oakland trades for Brown. 'I hope he's in play. It would be great to add a guy like that to your team, talent like that,' Carr told the Fresno Bee on Saturday, March 2.
Huddle Up: Duh? It's not really news, per se, but Carr is at least saying the right things ahead of a potential trade for the enigmatic wideout. Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league, is poised to slightly slow down given his age-31 season and having to adjust to a new quarterback. Should Carr be that quarterback, gamers are looking at Brown being no better than a midrange WR1 based on sheer volume alone.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 3/1/19 9:21pm ET
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Amari Cooper's representatives met with the organization in Indiianapolis at the NFL Scouting Combine in an attempt to work on a contract, or make headway on a deal. Cooper is expected to be among the highest-paid wide receivers upon his new deal.
Huddle Up: Cooper bounced back last season with 75 grabs, 1,005 yards and seven touchdowns across 15 games between Oakland and Dallas to rebound as a must-start fantasy option after a down year with the Raiders in 2017.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 2/27/19 4:34pm ET
Oakland Raiders impending free-agent TE Jared Cook is a player that the Raiders would like to re-sign, but the team may wait to see what he is being offered in free agency before making a final decision on Cook, according to general manager Mike Mayock.
Huddle Up: Cook is coming off the best season of his career and should receive interest from multiple teams in free agency. He probably should be considered a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues next season no matter where he signs.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 2/25/19 1:58pm ET
Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch is considered more likely to remain with the Raiders since they will be staying in Oakland. Lynch has said he is open to playing this season under the right circumstances and head coach Jon Gruden said the team would love to retain him.
Huddle Up: Lynch turns 33 this offseason and dealt with a core muscly injury that put him on Injured Reserve last year. He can at least serve as a short-yardage and goal-line back, but he's no more than an RB3 candidate if he does return.
Giorgio Tavecchio - PKPosted 2/9/19 1:45pm ET
Atlanta Falcons PK Giorgio Tavecchio likely will be the team's kicker in 2019 since PK Matt Bryant will be released.
Huddle Up: Tavecchio made all five of his field goal attempts in limited playing time this season and should be a solid fantasy option next season.
Martavis Bryant - WRPosted 2/7/19 2:17pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Martavis Bryant is suspended indefinitely but could return by training camp if he follows his treatment plans and does not have any setbacks.
Huddle Up: Bryant played well earlier in his career but has had several off-field issues over the last few years. He probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues next season even if he is reinstated.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 2/6/19 5:36am ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's $19.9 million salary for 2019 becomes fully guaranteed Wednesday, Feb. 6.
Huddle Up: Carr actually threw for a career-best 4,049 yards and a 68.9 percent completion percentage last season. However, his touchdowns have fallen each of the last three years. He'll be a QB2 with a little upside if the team drafts some weapons around him.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 1/27/19 2:57pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook caught three passes for 71 yards against the NFC in the 2019 Pro Bowl.
Huddle Up: Cook posted career highs in receptions (68), yards (896) and touchdowns (six) this season. He likely will receive plenty of interest if he hits the free-agent market and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues next season.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 1/22/19 10:34am ET
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch, an impending free agent this offseason, hasn't announced whether he plans on playing in 2019, but if he does, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Tuesday, Jan. 22, that 'we'd love to have him back.'
Huddle Up: Lynch will be 33 by the time next season rolls around, but he'd still be a fantasy RB2 consideration if were to be projected to be the primary RB in Oakland.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 1/22/19 11:11am ET
Oakland Raiders impending free-agent TE Jared Cook will be re-signed if head coach Jon Gruden has his way, but Gruden admitted that Cook will be a popular name on the free-agent market.
Huddle Up: Cook was one of the few bright spots for the Raiders this season, and maybe the lone bright spot. He's a top-five fantasy tight end candidate now after finishing 2018 as the TE5.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 1/19/19 8:47pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard's 68 catches in 2018 ranked seventh among running backs, and his 607 receiving yards were the sixth most at the position,
Huddle Up: Richard rarely saw meaningful carries, but he had a steady role in the passing attack. He is expected to return to Oakland in 2019, and you could do worse when hunting for running back depth in PPR formats.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 1/17/19 4:38pm ET
Oakland Raiders restricted free-agent RB Jalen Richard is expected to return to the team next season.
Huddle Up: Richard likely will not take over the starting job in 2019 but should continue to be a solid receiver out of the backfield for the Raiders. He can be considered a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues next season.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 1/12/19 8:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his nine targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: After providing a major spark to the Dallas offense after coming aboard, Cooper seems destined to be the focal point of the passing attack for the Cowboys in 2019 and a WR2 for fantasy owners.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 1/5/19 8:40pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught seven of his nine targets for 106 yards in a 24-22 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Cooper ended the regular season with three quiet games in a row, but he was back to making big plays in the Cowboys' playoff opener. He has WR1 potential for playoff contests as the clear No. 1 option in the Dallas passing attack.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 12/30/18 5:03pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper finished with five receptions for 31 yards on 11 targets in Week 17 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great fantasy performance, but it was a rather meaningless game. He'll be a highly coveted receiver for those in postseason fantasy leagues after his strong finish to the season.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 12/30/18 7:04pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 24 of his 33 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Carr finished the year with his best completion percentage of his career by a wide margin, but his 19 touchdowns were his fewest ever. Unless Oakland goes out and finds some more offensive weapons in the offseason, Carr is destined to be a lower-end QB2 in 2019.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/30/18 7:17pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught nine of his 12 targets for 78 yards in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Huddle Up: After disappearing in the middle of the year, Nelson closed the season with 38 catches for 386 yards over the final five games. He is expected to be back with the Raiders next year, and at the very least, he should be a solid backup in PPR formats.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/30/18 7:12pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed 21 times for 100 yards and caught one pass for one yard in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Martin closed the year with back-to-back 100-yard efforts, and he was a serviceable back for Oakland after Marshawn Lynch was injured. However, he isn't currently under contract for 2019, and at his age, there is little chance he will be signed to be a lead back.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/29/18 7:03am ET
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson will return for the 2019 season, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Nelson, who will turn 34 in May, received a $3.6 million roster bonus for 2019 earlier this week and will be entering the final season of a two-year, $14.2 million contract. After a slow start to the 2018 campaign, he has caught 29 passes for 308 yards over the last four games and should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option entering 2019.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/28/18 3:15pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Richard has posted at least 50 total yards in three of the last four games and will continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He could be a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 12/28/18 3:08pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Cook should be able to play this week as long as he can deal with the pain from his injured ribs. He has been on a cold streak over the last few weeks but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.
