Jared Cook - TEPosted 5/26/19 9:26am ET
New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook has impressed his new teammates so far in OTAs, with QB Drew Brees near the top of the list. 'I'd read a lot of good things about him before he got here, but he's certainly impressed us these first couple of days,' Brees said Thursday, May 23. 'He's got a great feel for the game, and I think he's going to fit very well in our offense. He's got great length, so he's got a big catch radius. You feel confident with those 50-50 balls. You feel like there's a lot of places where you can throw if where he can get it and the other guy can't. Anytime you have a target like that, you feel like that's a good matchup.'
Huddle Up: The big tight-end receiving numbers have been missing in recent seasons for the Saints, and now enter Cook, who finished fifth among fantasy tight ends last season with the Raiders, catching 68-of-101 targets for 896 yards and six TDs. Slot him on your draft board as a mid-level TE1.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 5/20/19 4:37pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper is at a stalemate in contract extension talks with the Cowboys, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Cooper is entering the final year of his contract, so the team is looking to sign him to a long-term extension this offseason. He played well after joining the Cowboys and should receive plenty of targets this upcoming season. He can be a No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 5/12/19 5:10pm ET
New Orleans Saints TE Jared Cook will be given the chance to show 'everything he can do' for the offense, according to tight ends coach Dan Campbell. 'The guy is over 30 and he still runs like the wind. He can absolutely smoke,' Campbell said. 'He's got 35-inch arms, he is long, and he is fast.'
Huddle Up: Cook set career highs in receptions, targets, yards and touchdowns last year in Oakland, and while Drew Brees likes to spread the ball around, he also knows how to utilize a dynamic tight end. Look for Cook to remain a solid TE1 in 2019.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 5/4/19 2:14pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper hopefully will sign a contract extension with the Cowboys before the start of the 2019 regular season, according to owner/general manager Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Huddle Up: Cooper played very well after the trade to the Cowboys and will continue to be the main option in the passing game. He can be considered a solid No. 2 receiver in fantasy leagues in 2019.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 5/1/19 12:08pm ET
Free-agent RB Doug Martin (Raiders) agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, May 1, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Martin likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Raiders with Isaiah Crowell out for the season. He probably will receive a handful of carries during games but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Marshawn Lynch - RBPosted 5/1/19 2:30pm ET
Retired RB Marshawn Lynch is willing to play for the Oakland Raiders if they want to sign him, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Lynch announced his retirement a few weeks ago, but the Raiders lost Isaiah Crowell to a season-ending injury. The team has signed Doug Martin, so it is not known if they will be interested in Lynch. He probably will not have a lot of fantasy value if he joins the Raiders.
Foster Moreau - TEPosted 4/27/19 10:48am ET
Louisiana State TE Foster Moreau was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the 137th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Raiders do not have a clear starter at tight end, so Moreau could compete for the job during training camp. He probably will not have a big role in the passing game as a rookie and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Josh Jacobs - RBPosted 4/26/19 2:24pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs can be a three-down back for the team, according to general manager Mike Mayock.
Huddle Up: Jacobs should be considered the leading candidate for the starting job this upcoming season and could also have a role in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Josh Jacobs - RBPosted 4/25/19 7:56pm ET
Alabama RB Josh Jacobs was selected by the Oakland Raiders with the 24th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is a well-rounded back who could be used on every down in the NFL. He will be in the mix to be the top pick in rookie drafts, and he could be a RB2 in redraft leagues if he is allowed to lead the Oakland backfield.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 4/22/19 5:25pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper said he has natural chemistry with QB Dak Prescott and believes they can be more productive this upcoming season. Cooper said he has been working out with Prescott this offseason to strengthen their chemistry.
Huddle Up: Cooper was one of the best receivers in the NFL after he was traded to the Cowboys and posted 725 yards and six touchdowns with Dallas. He will continue to be the main option in the passing game for the Cowboys and can be a No. 2 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
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.
