Fantasy Football: Week 7 six-pack

Fantasy Football: Week 7 six-pack

As I begrudgingly turned on Chiefs-Raiders for the first time Thursday night, when it became painfully clear the Cubs' World Series title defense season was over, Amari Cooper was dropping a deep ball from Derek Carr.

Raiders’ Amari Cooper sets early tone in huge game vs. Chiefs

Cooper finished with a career high 210 yards receiving, and added two touchdowns on 11 catches in Oakland's heart-stopping 31-30 win

Raiders’ game grades in win over Chiefs

Offense Was this really the same offense? The Raiders amassed nearly as many total yards Thursday night (505) as they did in their previous two games combined (519). Derek Carr took some chances downfield, and Amari Cooper finally looked like a speedy, dynamic wide receiver. Defense The Raiders gave up gobs of yardage, again (425 in all). Most of the game, they couldn’t cover Tyreek Hill or slow Kareem Hunt. But when it mattered most in the fourth quarter — when they faltered Sunday against the...

Tough to defend this pass interference non-call in Chiefs-Raiders game

Tough to defend this pass interference non-call in Chiefs-Raiders game

The Oakland Raiders ran a fleaflicker where Marshawn Lynch flipped the ball back to Derek Carr who then threw it 38 yards down the field to Amari Cooper who caught it for a touchdown. Except... Watch what Cooper does on the play. He pushes the Chiefs defensive back, Terrance Mitchell, to the ground. IF THIS ISN'T OFFENSIVE PASS INTERFERENCE, WHAT IS? #CHIEFS pic.twitter.com/gXkvMrWdbO— Clay Wendler (@ClayWendler) October 20, 2017 The ref near the goal line may not have seen that because he didn’t have a good view. Shouldn’t there be someone else who can see that? Mitchell is...

Raiders podcast: Breaking down the ugly 30-17 loss to Ravens

It will be another week of frustration in Raider Nation after an ugly home loss to Baltimore dropped the Raiders to 2-3. Among the topics Jerry Mcdonald and Matt Schneidman delve into on Inside The Black Hole: EJ Manuel’s decent day filling in for Derek Carr, Amari Cooper’s continued non-existence and the defense’s inability to pry […]

Game grades for Raiders’ home loss to Ravens

Offense EJ Manuel completed only half of his passes (13-of-26) for 159 yards and was sacked three times in his first Oakland start. Marshawn Lynch gained 43 yards on 12 carries, his best game in three weeks. Has anyone seen Amari Cooper (two targets, one catch)? Defense Ravens WR Mike Wallace had two 50-yard-plus catches on his way to his highest production (133 yards) in more than six years. Joe Flacco, hardly known for his elusiveness, wasn’t sacked, and the Ravens converted 7 of 14 third downs...

Tim Brown calls for Raiders’ Amari Cooper to be more involved in offense

Through four games, wide receiver Amari Cooper has 12 catches and seven dropped passes. Former Raider and Hall of Famer Tim Brown believes Cooper is pressing because of a lack of opportunity.

Raiders’ Amari Cooper likely an early target to help ‘get his confidence rolling’

Don’t tell the Baltimore Ravens and their head coach John Harbaugh, but there’s a good chance the Raiders will be looking to throw the ball to Amari Cooper early in the game Sunday in Oakland. The Raiders’ dynamic wide receiver has suffered a string of dropped passes this season, and for the Raiders to get back on track, they’ll need to get Cooper into a grippy groove. Harbaugh, in a Wednesday morning conference call with Bay Area media, said of Cooper, “He’s a game wrecker.” The Raiders could use one of those.

Raiders’ Amari Cooper looking to correct early-season errors

Wide receiver Amari Cooper, as he does most weeks, stood in front of his locker Wednesday and softly answered questions from reporters. Cooper knew his six dropped passes in three games this season would be a prominent topic. They were, and he didn’t duck those questions. “I try to move forward,” Cooper said. “Obviously, I look back on them to see how I dropped the ball, and then fix it. … Most of the balls I’ve dropped have been a result of trying to run before I actually catch the ball. “It’s a little frustrating, but you...
