Raiders | Amari Cooper wants to work with QB

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:08:57 -0700

Oakland Raiders rookie WR Amari Cooper said he wants to individually catch passes with QB Derek Carr three more times before the start of training camp, according to Carr.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign when a receiver wants to spend more time with his quarterback. Carr and Cooper seem to be developing the beginning of a good rapport. Carr has already lauded Cooper's rout-running and work ethic. We'll see what happens once they hit the field, though. Cooper should be drafted as a low-end WR2 in his rookie season, while Carr should be taken as a fantasy backup.

Raiders | Derek Carr throws passes

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:01:02 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) threw a few passes during organized team activities Tuesday, June 2, as he continues to recover from an injury on the ring finger of his throwing hand. The injury is not considered serious. There is no timetable for when Carr will really start throwing or how long the recovery will take.

Fantasy Tip: Carr at least seems to be improving, as he had not thrown passes in previous weeks. The recovery still seems to be taken some time. Fortunately for Carr and the Raiders, they still have a couple months until training camp and the preseason begin. Even when healthy, Carr is not a starting fantasy quarterback and should be drafted as a QB2.
