Teams are expressing interest in trading for both New York Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins and Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley with the cornerback market heating up with the Oct. 30 deadline quickly approaching. The Eagles, Patriots and Steelers are among the teams exploring their options. The Giants and Raiders are both well out of the race already and are in rebuilding mode, with the Raiders no secrets to trades, already dealing All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack and wide receiver Amari Cooper. Neither Jenkins nor Conley have played very well this year, but they could be an upgrade for a team in need of secondary help.
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper was pursued by the Philadelphia Eagles before being traded to the Cowboys. Whether or not the Colts made an offer was not disclosed.
The Oakland Raiders sent wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday in exchange for a first-round pick, according to a source. At 1-5 coming off their bye, the Raiders are in full-on rebuild mode in head coach Jon Gruden's first season. They now have compiled three first-round picks in 2019 after also trading All-Pro defensive end Khalil Mack before the start of the season. Safety Karl Joseph, a former first-round pick, is also available via trade before the Oct. 30 deadline. Cooper started his career with two 1,000-yard seasons but has been wildly inconsistent since. The change of scenery could do him good, but he'll initially remain a boom-or-bust WR3 that has to learn a new offense. In Oakland, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts will see higher fantasy ceilings, as well as tight end Jared Cook.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is being acquired by the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a first-round draft pick, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: The Cowboys finally gain a much-needed offensive playmaker to help Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. Cooper can't do any worse in Dallas than he was doing in Oakland. Targets shouldn't be an issue anymore, ideally, as he immediately becomes the Cowboys' best passing threat. On top of usage, Cooper has a favorable schedule remaining from a fantasy perspective.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is expected to be traded to the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source. Cooper is coming off a concussion in Week 6 in London, but apparently he's fine. He's been extremely inconsistent in his time with the Raiders, making him hard to rely on in fantasy. A change of scenery could do him good, but he'll have to learn a new offense and could struggle even more, at least initially. If this pans out, it's bad news for Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and rookie Michael Gallup. Cooper will likely be a very risky WR4/flex until he settles in with his new team. Back in Oakland, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts, as well as Jared Cook, will receive fantasy boosts.
The Dallas Cowboys have been doing their research on Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper as the Oct. 30 trade deadline approaches, according to league sources. The Raiders want a first-round pick for Cooper and the Cowboys have been calling around to get background information on Cooper. The Redskins and Colts have also made inquiries on Cooper, according to a league source. Dallas is one of the most receiver-needy teams in the NFL this year, so it would not be a surprise if they pulled the trigger, and owner Jerry Jones has made similar trades in the past. Cooper has just 22 catches for 280 yards and a touchdown in the first six games of the year, and he's coming off a concussion in Week 6. While a change of scenery would be good for Cooper, a move to Dallas probably wouldn't suddenly pull him out of boom-or-bust WR3 territory that he's currently in. If Cooper is traded, Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant would have higher fantasy floors.
The Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins have reportedly expressed interest in Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper, according to league sources.
Fantasy Spin: The 24-year-old Cooper has been very inconsistent this year, with 22 receptions for 240 receiving yards and one touchdown through six games; however, 18 of those catches came in two contests against Cleveland and Denver. Although he's difficult to trust as a starting option in any fantasy format, he's worth hanging onto in deeper seasonal leagues because of his upside and the possibility that he could land with another club which could better utilize his talents.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is on the trading block. The Raiders are asking for a first-round draft pick in exchange for Cooper, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The Oakland Raiders are seeking a first-round pick in a trade for wide receiver Amari Cooper, according to a source informed of the situation. The Raiders and head coach Jon Gruden won't discuss shopping Cooper, but it appears they want to get rid of him after he has been highly inconsistent this year and in his career so far with Oakland. However, getting a first-rounder for the disappointing and now injured wideout -- he suffered a concussion in Week 6 -- seems outrageous. Cooper has become an untrustworthy WR4/flex, but a change of scenery might be the best thing for him. A receiver-needy team such as the Browns or Cowboys could bite. If Cooper is dealt, it'd increase the fantasy value of receivers Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden deflected questions about the team's interest in shopping wide receiver Amari Cooper for a trade after their blowout loss to the Seahawks in London on Sunday. I dont know, Gruden said of the trade report. I havent heard that. Im just sorry to have to deal with a lot of these reports. I just hope Amari is OK. Like I said, hes going to be a big part of our pass offense, and well see what happens here. Hopefully hes all right. The biggest current issue with Cooper is the concussion he suffered on Sunday. Luckily for him and the Raiders, they'll be on their bye in Week 7, so hopefully he'll be able to be cleared in time for the Week 8 game against the Colts, where he'll remain a boom-or-bust WR3 for fantasy owners, assuming he's not traded by then.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ribs) was ruled out at halftime for the rest of Week 6 on Sunday, Oct. 14, after suffering a rib injury.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper's disappointing year didn't get any better overseas in London as he finishes the day with no catches on one target. It's getting tougher and tougher to justify rostering the under-performing wideout.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (head) left in the second quarter of the Week 6 game Sunday, Oct. 14, and headed to the locker room to be evaluated for a possible concussion.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper's 2018 travails continue, and this time it's an injury concern after he took a nasty hit over the middle.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper (head) left the game early in Week 6 in London against the Seahawks after a helmet-to-helmet hit. The good news is he was able to jog off the field under his own power, but he will likely be evaluated for a concussion. Consider the frustrating wide receiver questionable to return. He missed his only target before leaving. If he is unable to return, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and tight end Jared Cook should see more targets as they attempt to erase a 14-0 deficit.
The Oakland Raiders have been in talks to trade former first-round wide receiver Amari Cooper and safety Karl Joseph. Cooper has been a disappointment for the Raiders and fantasy owners. He's been Jekyll and Hyde so far in 2018 -- he has just four catches combined in three games and has 18 catches combined with a touchdown in two other games. That makes him a very shaky boom/bust WR4/flex at this point. If he were traded, it'd increase the fantasy values of Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper has been the subject of trade discussions, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday, Oct. 14.
Fantasy Spin: Along with Cooper's fantasy owners, it sounds like the Raiders are less than thrilled with the up-and-down former first-round pick, who has alternated poor and good weeks all season, with the latest being a one 10-yard reception outing in Week 5. Cooper has been hard to trust as a starter, but he's worth hanging on to the majority of leagues to see what develops given the talent and upside he's displayed.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper needs to be featured more, according to quarterback Derek Carr, but Carr said he won't throw at Cooper just to reach a certain number of targets.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper has topped 100 yards in two of the five games this year but has been held under 20 yards in the other three. He's a boom-or-bust WR3 against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 6.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is in a spot for his upswing game this week against the Seahawks. Cooper has been on a bad game, then strong game pattern this season and this week is set for a "good game." Week 1 he had one catch, Week 2 he had 10, Week 3 he had two, Week 4 he had eight, Week 5 he had one. This is amazingly inconsistent, but if you are buying into his pattern in the offense, this should be the week for him to post big numbers against a very weak and injured Seattle secondary.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper caught his only target for 10 yards in a 26-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 5.
Fantasy Spin: Cooper has topped 100 yards in two of the five games this year, but this was the third time has finished with less than 20 yards. He is an all-or-nothing WR3 at this point.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper went missing in Sunday's loss against the Chargers. Cooper had only one catch for 10 yards with no touchdowns. Cooper saw a lot of Chargers top cornerback Casey Hayward, which proved to be a very tough matchup. This makes the third time in three games this season where Cooper has been held to under 20 yards in a game. The roller coaster of production continues for another week, which should be the trend moving forward.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is looking to add another 100-yard game this season, which would be his third of the year. He may see a tough matchup against Chargers top cornerback Casey Hayward, but Cooper was able to post a 100 yard, one touchdown game last season versus this Chargers secondary. Cooper has been a bit of a fantasy roller coaster in terms of production, but him coming away with a big performance this week, would give him solid outings in three of his last four games.
