Silver Mining 9/21: Amari Cooper expanding his voice, MGM worried about Raiders parking plan

Raiders News Raiders receiver Amari Cooper expanding his voice - SFChronicle.comIt was suggested to Amari Cooper this week that the Raiders receiver is decidedly quieter and more mild-mannered than players who have starred at his position in the past. MGM is worried about the Raiders’ stadium parking plan – Las Vegas Review-JournalBill Hornbuckle, an MGM executive and one of the nine members of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board, on Thursday said his company fears that its customers would be “choked out” by people wanting to park close to the stadium on event days.

Raiders vs. Dolphins fantasy football advice: Cooper, Carr, Cook will ignite Oakland air raid

Raiders vs. Dolphins fantasy football advice: Cooper, Carr, Cook will ignite Oakland air raid

If NFL games were only 30 minutes long, the Oakland Raiders might be the best team in the league. Unfortunately for Raider Nation, they are not and it is making my fantasy predictions rather difficult. Last week against Denver, I was sort of right about Derek Carr but also wrong. He put on a record-setting display with his completion percentage and looked comfortable all day. But the offense did stall in the second half scoring only seven points. Overall, Carr threw for close to 300 yards and one touchdown resulting in a good fantasy outing. Those who stuck with Amari Cooper finally got...

Raiders WR Jordy Nelson not sweating quiet start

Being Derek Carr’s primary receiving target has resulted in a gaudy stat line in each of the Raiders’ first two games. Tight end Jared Cook had nine catches for 180 yards in Week 1. Last weekend in Denver, receiver Amari Cooper had 10 catches on 10 targets for 116 yards. “So maybe I’m in the rotation this week,” receiver Jordy Nelson said, grinning. “We’ll see.” Nelson, the Raiders’ biggest free-agent acquisition this spring, is off to a quiet start with five catches for 53 yards in two games. He was targeted four times at Denver and did not have a catch in the second half....

Raiders week 2 Ballers

Raiders week 2 Ballers

After the Raiders second half collapse against the Rams, it was off to Denver…where they had a second half collapse. There was some progress though. Or it would appear. This time they only blew a 12-point lead and managed to score once in the second half. So, the result was a crushing game-winning field goal instead of just getting routed as they did in the opener. In this one, it was a few plays that eluded them. The result was a late drive by the Broncos to kick the game winning field goal. Ballers Derek Carr, Amari Cooper The opener was an out and out disaster for Carr. And part of...

Raiders Film Study Week 1: Carr to Cook connection

The home opener against the Rams resulted in a loss for the Oakland Raiders. A loss is always a bad result but the final score doesn’t reflect how close the game truly was. There were some promising things to see on tape and it is clear that Gruden’s offense can be potent and damaging to opponents. Derek Carr has officially found his favorite target, much to the chagrin of Amari Cooper fantasy owners. Carr hit Cook for a Raiders franchise record 180 yards receiving by a Tight End. The Raiders came into the game ready to exploit the mismatches that Cook gave them. It only took the...

Horse Tracks: Broncos shouldn’t have much trouble containing Amari Cooper

Horse Tracks: Broncos shouldn’t have much trouble containing Amari Cooper

Amari Cooper has never done much against the Denver Broncos defense, but Martavius Bryant has. The Denver Broncos defense has done well against Oakland Raiders star wide receiver Amari Cooper in six games against him, allowing just 17 catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns. That amounts to just 3 catches for 26 yards a game. Despite Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden suggesting they will need to get Cooper the ball more, he should take a look instead at Martavius Bryant tape. “If we had more first downs in the second half and had more time of possession, perhaps we would’ve seen more of...

Raiders vs Broncos fantasy football advice: Expect Oakland’s (Derek) Carr to stall again

Raiders vs Broncos fantasy football advice: Expect Oakland’s (Derek) Carr to stall again

After an impressive first half against the Los Angeles Rams, it looked like many of the Oakland Raiders players were a smart fantasy play. Hell, maybe Oakland could have limited Todd Gurley and Jared Goff. However, that was not the case and, like I predicted, Goff and Gurley put up monster fantasy days. On the Raiders side, Amari Cooper was shockingly non-existent and Carr was poor putting up great first-half numbers but an abysmal second half. I had one major omission in Jared Cook who had a jaw-dropping Week 1 with 180 yards receiving. In this week’s fantasy football edition, Cook...
