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.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 1/17/19 4:38pm ET
Oakland Raiders restricted free-agent RB Jalen Richard is expected to return to the team next season.
Huddle Up: Richard likely will not take over the starting job in 2019 but should continue to be a solid receiver out of the backfield for the Raiders. He can be considered a late-round option in point-per-reception leagues next season.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 1/12/19 8:28pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught six of his nine targets for 65 yards and a touchdown in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Huddle Up: After providing a major spark to the Dallas offense after coming aboard, Cooper seems destined to be the focal point of the passing attack for the Cowboys in 2019 and a WR2 for fantasy owners.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 1/5/19 8:40pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper caught seven of his nine targets for 106 yards in a 24-22 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Cooper ended the regular season with three quiet games in a row, but he was back to making big plays in the Cowboys' playoff opener. He has WR1 potential for playoff contests as the clear No. 1 option in the Dallas passing attack.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 12/30/18 5:03pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper finished with five receptions for 31 yards on 11 targets in Week 17 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great fantasy performance, but it was a rather meaningless game. He'll be a highly coveted receiver for those in postseason fantasy leagues after his strong finish to the season.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 12/30/18 7:04pm ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 24 of his 33 passes for 185 yards and two interceptions in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Huddle Up: Carr finished the year with his best completion percentage of his career by a wide margin, but his 19 touchdowns were his fewest ever. Unless Oakland goes out and finds some more offensive weapons in the offseason, Carr is destined to be a lower-end QB2 in 2019.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/30/18 7:17pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson caught nine of his 12 targets for 78 yards in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17.
Huddle Up: After disappearing in the middle of the year, Nelson closed the season with 38 catches for 386 yards over the final five games. He is expected to be back with the Raiders next year, and at the very least, he should be a solid backup in PPR formats.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/30/18 7:12pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin rushed 21 times for 100 yards and caught one pass for one yard in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17. He also lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Martin closed the year with back-to-back 100-yard efforts, and he was a serviceable back for Oakland after Marshawn Lynch was injured. However, he isn't currently under contract for 2019, and at his age, there is little chance he will be signed to be a lead back.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/29/18 7:03am ET
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson will return for the 2019 season, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Nelson, who will turn 34 in May, received a $3.6 million roster bonus for 2019 earlier this week and will be entering the final season of a two-year, $14.2 million contract. After a slow start to the 2018 campaign, he has caught 29 passes for 308 yards over the last four games and should be viewed as a WR3 or flex option entering 2019.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/28/18 3:15pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Richard has posted at least 50 total yards in three of the last four games and will continue to be involved in the running and passing game. He could be a flex option in some deeper point-per-reception leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 12/28/18 3:08pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 28, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Cook should be able to play this week as long as he can deal with the pain from his injured ribs. He has been on a cold streak over the last few weeks but can still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 12/27/18 4:12pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Cook appears to have a decent chance to play in Week 17, but owners will know more about his status in the next day or two. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end if he is active this week.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/27/18 4:13pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Richard should be involved in the running and passing game against the Kansas City Chiefs and can be considered a flex option in some deeper leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 12/26/18 4:07pm ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Owners should know more about Cook's status for the Week 17 game later in the week. He is coming off two disappointing games but has been one of the better tight ends in the NFL this season. He can be a starting option in all leagues if he is active.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/26/18 3:51pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Richard has received eight or nine touches in each of the last four games and should have a similar role if he plays this week. He can be considered a flex option in some leagues.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/26/18 5:55pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson said Wednesday, Dec. 26, that he plans on returning next season. He's set to make $7.2 million in base salary and bonuses in 2019.
Huddle Up: After a disappointing start, the 11-year veteran has finally settled in with his new club, racking up 29 catches for 308 yards on 34 targets over the last four games. While he may not be the top-flight receiver he was in Green Bay, Nelson will be a solid buy-low target entering next season, with potential to serve as a viable WR3.
Derek Carr - QBPosted 12/25/18 2:40am ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 19 of 26 passes for 167 yards in the club's Week 16 victory Monday, Dec. 24, versus the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It was the type of outing that didn't do anything for fantasy owners but was just enough to get the win for his real-life team. Despite Oakland's disappointing season, Carr actually hasn't had a bad campaign and will be in position to reach the 4,000-yard plateau next week for the first time in his career. Still, though, he's ideally more of a QB2 right now.
Doug Martin - RBPosted 12/25/18 3:24am ET
Oakland Raiders RB Doug Martin produced 107 rushing yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the club's Week 16 victory Monday, Dec. 24, versus the Denver Broncos. He also added one catch for nine yards.
Huddle Up: Martin continued his 2018 resurgence with his first 100-yard performance on the ground in more than three years. Those who were shrewd enough to get his services when Marshawn Lynch went down have to be feeling pretty thankful right now. After logging his best game of the season, Martin will continue to be a viable RB2 in the finale.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/25/18 3:23am ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard carried the rock four times for 11 yards and added four receptions for 40 yards in the team's Week 16 win Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: This is a pretty typical stat line for Richard and it certainly wasn't going to change while backfield teammate Doug Martin was enjoying his best showing of the year. Due to his inconsistent usage and defined ceiling, Richard is really only a FLEX option in deep PPR leagues.
Jared Cook - TEPosted 12/25/18 3:17am ET
Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook was kept in check in Week 16 Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos, securing only two of three targets for 20 yards.
Huddle Up: Cook let down his fantasy owners big time in this one, though to be fair, the 10-year veteran has basically been a godsend for those trying to shore up the tight end position on their roster. In fact, he's already logged career bests in touchdowns, receptions and yards. Despite the off night, he'll keep his TE1 status entering the season finale.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/25/18 3:15am ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson hauled in seven of 10 targets for 75 yards in the club's Week 16 win Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Nelson appeared all but done as recent as a month ago but this late-season run he's on has vaulted him back into fantasy relevancy. The former Green Bay Packer has collected 29 catches in his last four outings, which remarkably tops his output from the previous 10 games. Thus, he's crafted himself as a legit WR3 option for Week 17.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 12/23/18 5:30pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper posted four grabs for just 20 yards on five targets in Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It was a bitter pill for fantasy owners hoping the good times would roll in what was the championship week for most. He'll look to finish up strong on the road in Week 17 against the Giants before the team's home wild-card game the following weekend.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/22/18 2:47pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) practiced in full Saturday, Dec. 22 and he was lifted from the injury report leading up to the Week 16 game Monday, Dec. 24 against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: Nelson has had a few big games recently, re-emerging as a useful WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/21/18 1:56pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) was able to practice in full Friday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: Nelson has enjoyed a resurgence lately, racking up 22 catches for 233 yards on 26 targets over the past three outings. He is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 if active.
Amari Cooper - WRPosted 12/21/18 6:42pm ET
Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper faces the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16, and the Buccaneers have allowed the second-most receiving touchdowns this season.
Huddle Up: Cooper is coming off his worst game as a Cowboy, but facing one of the friendliest matchups possible, he should vault right back into WR2 territory.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/20/18 4:05pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Nelson has been playing well over the last three weeks and has been targeted 26 times over that span. He will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense but could still be a flex option in some leagues.
Jalen Richard - RBPosted 12/16/18 4:25pm ET
Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard ran four times for nine yards in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added five receptions for 67 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: The Raiders got away from the run in the second half with the game out of hand, and that was good news for Richard running short routes out of the backfield. He's a nice low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night with much lesser value in standard play.
Jordy Nelson - WRPosted 12/16/18 4:22pm ET
Oakland Raiders WR Jordy Nelson registered six grabs for a game-high 88 yards on eight targets in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Nelson has re-emerged as a fantasy threat, especially in PPR leagues, posting six or more grabs over the past three outings. He has 22 catches for 233 yards during the span. Treat him as a WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR, with lesser value in standard play in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
