Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) did not participate in practice Tuesday, May 29, because of the hamstring injury he suffered last week.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has been learning a lot from WR Jordy Nelson.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) left organized team activities early Tuesday, May 22, with a hamstring ailment, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
The Oakland Raiders exercised wide receiver Amari Cooper's fifth-year option on Monday. Even after posting career lows in catches (48) and yards (680) in 2017, the Raiders had planned to do this all along. With Michael Crabtree now out of the picture in Oakland, Cooper is expected to become even more of a focal point on offense under new head coach Jon Gruden. That could make Cooper in line for a bounce-back season as a value play in fantasy drafts this fall.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper's fifth-year option was officially exercised Monday, April 23.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is expected to have his fifth-year option picked up soon, according to a source.
Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said the team has been in touch with wide receiver Amari Cooper's agent about extending his fifth-year option. McKenzie said the team is focused on the draft but that "we like Amari." The third-year wideout rubbed his fantasy owners the wrong way in 2017 by posting career lows in receptions (48) and yards (680) after reaching 1,000 yards his first two years in the NFL. He ranked third in the league in dropped passes, but he also wasn't 100 percent healthy for much of the year. With new head coach Jon Gruden in town and with better health, Cooper should be the focal point of the offense and could be in for a bounce-back season as a fantasy value pick.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper's agent has been in contact with the Raiders about Cooper's contract situation, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. The Raiders will have to decide this offseason whether to exercise the fifth-year option in Cooper's contract.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden reiterated his plans on WR Amari Cooper being a central figure of the offense this season Monday, April 2, and went one step further by suggesting Cooper reminds him of a 'young Tim Brown.' 'I said it when he came out of Alabama, that he reminded me of a young Tim Brown. He has that type of game speed. He's elusive, and has a wide range of routes he can run. ? We're going to make him the main vein of our passing offense and move him around a lot,' Gruden said.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he expects wide receiver Amari Cooper to be "the focal point of our offense" in 2018. Coming off a disappointing season in which he had career lows in catches and yards in his third season, Cooper will be a value candidate in drafts for a potential bounce-back year under a new coaching staff. He posted less than 10 yards in a game five times and only went over 100 yards three times. Michael Crabtree is slated to return as the No. 2 wideout, which should continue to take some pressure off of Cooper.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper will be the focal point of Oakland's offense in 2018, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper battled an assortment of injuries all season, quarterback Derek Carr told Sirius XM Radio on Friday, Feb. 16. 'He would never say it to you, but I'll say it to you to have his back. That man was out there giving anything he could and, honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had,' Carr said.
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr said that wide receiver Amari Cooper fought through injuries all of last season. "He would never say it to you but I'll say it to you to have his back. That man was out there giving anything he could and honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had," Carr said. In 14 games, Cooper caught a career-low 48 passes for just 680 yards (14.2 yards per catch) and seven touchdowns. While the seven scores were a career high, he was also targeted a career-low 96 times. Oakland's offense as a whole took a big step backward, which is one of the main reasons they brought in new head coach Jon Gruden. With better health and improved play from Carr, Cooper is a bounce-back candidate that could present excellent value in drafts.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 19 of his 28 passes for 243 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17. RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 19 times for 101 yards and added two catches for 18 yards. WR Amari Cooper caught three passes for 115 yards and a touchdown, and WR Michael Crabtree caught two passes for 17 yards. TE Jared Cook finished with three catches for 35 yards.
Raiders' WR Amari Cooper had 3 receptions for 115 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's loss in Los Angeles Chargers.
Oakland Raiders DT Treyvon Hester (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and has been ruled out for Week 17. OT Vadal Alexander (concussion) did not practice and is listed as doubtful. OT David Sharpe (illness) did not practice and is listed as questionable. CB David Amerson (foot) and CB Dexter McDonald (knee) were limited during practice and are listed as questionable. DT Denico Autry (ankle, hand), TE Jared Cook (wrist), WR Amari Cooper (ankle), DE Mario Edwards Jr. (ankle), CB Rodney Hudson (ankle, illness), S Keith McGill (knee) and WR Cordarrelle Patterson (hip) fully participated in practice and are not on the injury report.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) and tight end Jared Cook (wrist) were both full participants in practice Friday and have been taken off the final injury report for Week 17 against the Chargers. Cooper and Cook will be fine to play, but both have been mostly inconsistent for fantasy owners in 2017, and not much should change in a tough draw against the Bolts, who will be playing for a postseason spot. Cooper caught a long touchdown pass last week in his return, but he may be followed around by shutdown cornerback Casey Hayward this weekend. Cooper is a volatile WR3 to close out the year, while Cook is an unattractive low-end TE1.
Fantasy football's biggest bust, Amari Cooper will finally see his disastrous season come to an end in Los Angeles this weekend, where he will be a low-floor WR3. Cooper hardly played in last week's loss, but did manage to score on a long pass, and while he may see more reps this week, the chances of him repeating himself are slim. Supremely talented, but unable to get out of his own way, Amari Cooper is nothing more than a high-risk, low-reward WR3.
Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 28.
