    Posted 9/22/17 1:51pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 22, and was removed from the injury report heading into Week 3 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Cooper faces a Redskins pass defense allowing 266.5 yards per game, so there is opportunity for a big stat line. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues for Week 3.

    Posted 9/21/17 4:56pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: This appears to simply be standard procedure for the star third-year wideout. While he's only registered nine catches for 95 yards thus far, he does have a touchdown and has also drawn 18 targets. To put that into perspective, if he maintains that pace of nine per game, he'd end up with a career high. Cooper should be a solid WR1 this week, as he has a delicious matchup on tap in Washington on Sunday night.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 9/21/17 5:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: The nine-year veteran should be good to go for Sunday, as this seems like it'll be typical concerning his practice habits for the duration of the campaign. He's on pace for a career high in receptions in the early going, and with a nice matchup on tap versus the Redskins, he could end up being a very useful TE1 this weekend.

  • Jared Cook - TE
    Posted 9/20/17 4:48pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Cook has been a solid part of the passing game and has recorded nine catches and 81 yards in the first two weeks of the season. Cook should be on fantasy rosters but probably can stay on the bench this week.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/20/17 4:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been on the injury report since the start of the season but has not missed any time and should be in uniform Week 3. He was held to 33 yards in Week 2 and will be facing a solid Washington Redskins secondary this week. Owners could consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in their lineups.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 9/17/17 7:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch finished with 12 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown and one catch for four yards in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Lynch wasn't needed much in a game that got out of hand, but he is the headliner in the Oakland backfield. He should be a high-end RB2 against Washington in Week 3.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 9/17/17 7:06pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree finished with six catches for 80 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has reached 80 yards in each of the first two games, and he can be trusted as a WR2 heading into a Week 3 matchup with Washington.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 9/17/17 7:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 23 of his 28 pass attempts for 230 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-20 win over the New York Jets in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Carr is completing 75.0 percent of his passes and has five touchdowns and no interceptions through two games. He is looking the part of a QB1 heading into a Week 3 meeting with Washington.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 9/16/17 7:16am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch was fined $12,000 by the National Football League for making an obscene gesture during Week 1's game against the Tennessee Titans, according to a league source. Following one of his carries in the fourth quarter, Lynch put up both of his middle fingers.

    Huddle Up: Lynch gained 76 rushing yards on 18 carries last week and added an 18-yard catch. He makes a viable RB2 or flex option versus most opponents and has a favorable Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/15/17 1:36pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) practiced fully for a second consecutive day Friday, Sept. 15, and he was removed from the injury report for Week 2 against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: Cooper opened the 2017 season with a solid performance, including a trip to the end zone while being targeted 13 times. He faces a good matchup against a middle of the road Jets pass defense which plan to work in man coverage. He should be considered a low-end WR1 or top-notch WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/15/17 2:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Cooper will see his normal workload this week and should have some success because of the favorable matchup. He can be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver for owners in Week 2.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/14/17 4:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is coming off a fine Week 1 performance and should have a solid role in the passing game against the New York Jets. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues this week because of the favorable matchup.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/13/17 4:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Cooper probably will be limited during most of the week but should be on the field for Week 2. He posted 62 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and will continue to be a big part of the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/10/17 8:04am ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski (back) will not need surgery on his back injury and could return in eight weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Janikowski could be a fantasy option if he returns during the second half of the season.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 9/10/17 2:03pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 76 yards on 18 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. He also caught one pass for 16 yards in the game.

    Huddle Up: Lynch played well in his first game with the Raiders and was able to handle a heavy workload. He likely will receive a similar amount of carries each week and will be a No. 2 running back or a flex option against most opponents.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 9/10/17 1:53pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr went 22-for-32 for 262 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Carr continued his strong play from 2016 in Week 1 and has thrown at least two touchdowns in five of his last seven regular season games. Carr should be considered a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next week against the New York Jets.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 2:08pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree caught six passes for 83 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has been a productive player since joining the Raiders and will continue to receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He should be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver against most opponents.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/10/17 2:24pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught five passes for 62 yards and one touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Cooper struggled at the end of the 2016 season but has bounced back with a solid Week 1 performance. He should be at least a No. 2 fantasy receiver next week against the New York Jets.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/9/17 4:57pm ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski (back) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Sept. 9. It is not known yet whether Janikowski will be out for the season due to disc issues in his back or whether Janikowski will miss a partial section of the season.

    Huddle Up: What is known is that fantasy owners with Janikowski are now free to look elsewhere for a kicker. Janikowski will likely be gone for at least eight weeks, and PK Giorgio Tavecchio has no fantasy value and little job security.

  • Marshawn Lynch - RB
    Posted 9/8/17 10:14am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch should see the bulk of carries in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans, but head coach Jack Del Rio admitted recently he doesn't know what to expect from his starting running back right away.

    Huddle Up: Lynch was one of the more polarizing high-profile players during draft season, with some owners taking him as high as the middle of the second round and others landing him in the fifth. The Raiders would probably like nothing more than for him to be their featured back, but as a 31-year-old running back with a history of back issues coming off a year away from football, the odds are stacked against Lynch holding up to a full workload. As long as he can play, however, he should be considered a high-end RB2.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/8/17 1:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Cooper likely will be the main target in the passing game this season and should receive plenty of targets in Week 1. Owners should consider Cooper as a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/8/17 1:17pm ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski (back) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Janikowski may be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list for his status. Owners probably should look for healthier options to use in their lineups.

  • Khalil Mack - LB
    Posted 9/8/17 1:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders DE Khalil Mack (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Mack finished in the top ten in sacks last season with 11 and should continue to be one of the better pass rushers in the NFL. He should be a valuable option in IDP leagues.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/7/17 5:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski (back) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Janikowski is expected to remain with the team after he resolved his contract situation. He has been a solid kicker during most of his career and could be a starting option in deeper leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/7/17 5:08pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be fine for the game against the Tennessee Titans and should be the main target in the passing game in Week 1. He struggled during the second half of last season but should still be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/6/17 4:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (knee) was listed as a limited participant for practice on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: It's uncertain if Cooper was simply limited to preserve him for Week 1 or if he suffered any kind of setback pertaining to the ailment which hampered him in the preseason. When healthy Cooper is a solid low-end WR1 or must-have WR2 in all fantasy formats.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/6/17 8:55pm ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski and the team resolved their 'contractual differences' Wednesday, Sept. 6, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: This ensures that the longest-tenured Raider will remain in Oakland. Once one of the true elite kickers around the NFL, Janikowski isn't as consistent as he once was, but he still has value to offer fantasy clubs given the potent offense he plays with.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/5/17 5:43am ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski (back) looked 'awful' in practice Monday, Sept. 4, according to a source, as his back has been slow to recover. The team worked out three kickers Monday.

    Huddle Up: A previous note mentioned his status was rocky because he refused a pay cut, and this puts him at a big risk of being cut. If you're drafting late, you may want to avoid him for now. If you own him, a contingency plan is worth considering for Week 1.

  • Sebastian Janikowski - PK
    Posted 9/4/17 4:51pm ET

    Oakland Raiders PK Sebastian Janikowski's status with the team is uncertain because he has refused to restructure his contract to this point, according to a source. He is scheduled to make $4 million this season and could be released if he does not agree to the reworked deal.

    Huddle Up: Janikowski has been a reliable fantasy kicker since he has entered the NFL. He probably would find a team quickly if he is released, but owners may want to look for other kickers for Week 1.

  • Seth Roberts - WR
    Posted 8/30/17 1:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Seth Roberts signed a two-year contract extension through 2019 Wednesday, Aug. 30. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Roberts has a nose for the end zone, but he doesn't do much between the twenties. That's thanks in large part to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Roberts makes for a decent late-round dart throw, but he won't possess significant fantasy value unless one of Cooper or Crabtree become injured.
