• Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 1/8/17 10:43pm ET

    The agent for Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray has had talks with the team about a contract extension. Murray has said he'd like to stay with the team that drafted him.

    Huddle Up: Murray should stay a decent RB2 candidate if he stays in Oakland. He had a quiet day in the NFL Wild Card game against the Houston Texans, but one game doesn't ruin a player's contract plans.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/7/17 12:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree should be in the starting lineup against the Texans and will see a decent amount of targets during the game. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues even though the team is starting their third-string quarterback.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/7/17 12:30pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been fairly quiet over the last several weeks but should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. His fantasy value probably takes a hit because of the team's quarterback situation, but he can still be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/7/17 4:35pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (head) left the Wild Card playoff game Saturday, Jan. 7, in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Andre Holmes formed a connection with quarterback Connor Cook almost immediately after Crabtree departed and seems likely to play out the rest of the game with Crabtree unlikely to return.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 1/7/17 5:10pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray finished with 12 carries for 39 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 12 yards in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: Murray is slated to be a free agent this offseason, but assuming he ends up back in Oakland, he should continue to be a volume-based RB2.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/7/17 5:16pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper finished with two catches for 10 yards on 10 targets in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: With third-string quarterback Connor Cook under center, it's tough to blame Cooper for laying an egg. He is one of the best young receivers in the game and should be a WR1 in 2017.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/7/17 5:38pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (concussion) sustained a concussion in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has 174 catches, 1,925 yards and 17 scores in two years with Oakland, and he should be a quality WR2 in 2017.

  • Connor Cook - QB
    Posted 1/7/17 6:03pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook completed 18 of his 45 passes for 161 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions in a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: The odds were stacked against Cook, and he looked actually like you would expect a third-stringer thrown into the fire would look. Derek Carr should be healthy and back under center for Oakland for the start of the 2017 season, and he can be drafted as a QB1.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/6/17 1:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 6, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree should receive his normal workload against the Texans despite the injury. His fantasy status will be affected by the team's quarterback situation but can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/6/17 1:22pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 6, and is listed as questionable for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be ready to play against the Texans and likely will receive a solid amount of targets during the game. He has posted disappointing numbers over the last month of the season and will be playing with the team's third-string quarterback. Owners probably can consider Cooper as a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/5/17 3:40pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Cooper's value obviously goes down with the absence of Derek Carr. He did catch a touchdown last week with Connor Cook at quarterback, however. Still, the Houston Texans have been stellar against the pass this season and Oakland will be on the road in a hostile playoff atmosphere. Temper expectations for Cooper.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/5/17 3:46pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: As is the case with Cooper, don't expect gaudy numbers from Crabtree with Derek Carr sidelined. Connor Cook was OK in his first NFL action last week, but he's no Carr. Plus, the Houston Texans were one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in 2016, and the Raiders will be away from home. Crabtree is a risky start for those in playoff contests.

  • Connor Cook - QB
    Posted 1/4/17 11:03am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook will be the starting quarterback for the Wild Card playoff game against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Cook had a decent outing after filling in for Matt McGloin in Week 17 and finished with 150 yards, one touchdown and one interception during that span. He probably will not be asked to throw a lot against the Texans and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/4/17 4:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been able to play the last few weeks despite the injury but has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last six games. His value will be hurt by the team's quarterback situation, but he could still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/4/17 4:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has caught at least five passes in five of the last six games and has two touchdowns during that span. He should continue to be a main part of the passing game, but his value will be affected by the team's quarterback situation. Crabtree can still be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in playoff fantasy leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/4/17 8:21pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he will 'demand the ball' against the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was held below 60 yards in seven of his last eight games, and having Connor Cook under center doesn't help his value. However, his big-play ability is undeniable, and Cooper is still worth using as a WR3 given the limited player pool in the playoffs.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 1/3/17 3:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (leg, finger) suffered a broken finger in Week 12, not just a dislocation as previously believed.

    Huddle Up: Carr's finger isn't as worrisome with the broken fibula he's recovering from now. The fact that he played with a break and dislocations in his finger is a testament to his toughness, though. He's a QB1 candidate again next season, assuming his leg makes a full recovery.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 1/2/17 5:43pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray hasn't been receiving enough work, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

    Huddle Up: The Raiders may be forced to rely on Murray in the wild-card round of the playoffs with Matt McGloin or Connor Cook starting. The Pittsburgh Steelers have been vulnerable against the run this season, too, making Murray a favorable option in fantasy playoff leagues.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 1/1/17 12:51pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has been a solid option for fantasy owners this season and should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 17. His value may drop some since Matt McGloin will be the starting quarterback, but he can still be a No. 3 receiver in leagues.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 1/1/17 12:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should receive a solid amount of targets during the game, but his value will be affected by the team's quarterback situation. Owners can still consider Cooper a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most leagues but may want to lower expectations.

  • Matt McGloin - QB
    Posted 1/1/17 3:20pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin (shoulder) left the Week 17 game against the Denver Broncos due to a shoulder injury. He was taken to the locker room and is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Connor Cook checked into the game for McGloin. It was bad enough with Derek Carr going down last week to a serious injury, but now the Raiders might be down to their No. 3 QB heading into the playoffs.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 7:39pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree will likely suit up, but with Matt McGloin under center against a stingy Denver secondary, he is no more than a risky WR3 in Week 17.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/30/16 7:33pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Friday, Dec. 30, is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play, but the quarterback situation and matchup against Denver are fall from ideal. He is still worth starting in season-long formats, but stay away in DFS games.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 12/29/16 7:49pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has been a reliable WR3 most of the year, but a matchup with Denver's tough corners and an injury to Derek Carr make him a risky play in Week 17.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/29/16 7:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Cooper should be able to play in Week 17, but with Derek Carr sidelined, don't expect more than WR3 production.

  • DeAndre Washington - RB
    Posted 12/29/16 9:07pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington is benefitting from being deactivated earlier in the year because he was able to take care of his body and learn the offense, according to OT Donald Penn.

    Huddle Up: Washington had a big performance in Week 16, and while he has been too inconsistent to trust in the finale, he will be a sleeper candidate heading into 2017, especially in dynasty formats.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 12/28/16 8:22am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (leg) is aiming to return if the Raiders advance to the Super Bowl, but he's considered an extreme long shot.

    Huddle Up: Carr had a fantastic season, but a return this year is unlikely. He'll be a midrange QB1 option in drafts next season.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 12/28/16 6:47pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Michael Crabtree (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has been dealing with a multitude of injuries down the stretch, but so far he has continued to play through them. He is expected to play in Week 17, as the team is still battling for home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 12/28/16 6:45pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Cooper has been on the injury report for a while, but he hasn't missed any time. He was likely limited as a precaution, and you can expect to see him play in Week 17, especially since the team continues to battle for home-field advantage in the AFC.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 12/27/16 12:37pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (fibula) underwent successful surgery Tuesday, Dec. 27, and is doing well, according to his mother. Carr is expected to be fully recovered from his broken fibula in six to eight weeks.

    Huddle Up: If the Raiders can win throughout the playoffs then Carr could return in time for the Super Bowl. As for Week 17, though, Matt McGloin is not even close to being a starting fantasy option against one of the best pass defenses in the NFL in the Denver Broncos.
