Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper (foot) was nearly shut down in December due to a foot injury. General manager Reggie McKenzie said Wednesday, Dec. 27, that he was impressed how the rookie toughed it out and finished the season.
Fantasy Tip: Cooper posted 72 receptions for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns in his rookie season, and he was targeted 130 times in his 16 games (15 starts). He'll be a Top 15 fantasy selection at his position next season, if not higher.

The Oakland Raiders could move to San Diego for the 2017 or 2018 season if the San Diego Chargers move to Los Angeles, according to a source. According to another source, the Raiders moving to San Diego is very viable, but they are expected to stay in Oakland for the 2016 season.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree was targeted a career high 146 times in 2015, while tying a career high in catches (85) and touchdowns (9). His 922 receiving yards were the second most of his career for a single season.
Fantasy Tip: Last season was supposed to be star rookie receiver Amari Cooper's for the taking. Crabtree really flew under the radar throughout the season, and actually outperformed Cooper from a fantasy perspective. The key again for Crabtree next season will be to stay healthy, which he has done the last two years. If he can do that, he could end up as WR2 again, with added value in PPR leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray gained 1,865 total yards, including over 1,000 rushing yards, and six touchdowns this year in his second season in the NFL. Murray said the 1,000-yard season is exciting, but he knows there's a lot more for him to do.
Fantasy Tip: Murray came through in what was expected to be a breakout campaign for him, en route to being one of only seven running backs to rush for 1,000 yards. He was one of the few bright spots for the Raiders, and he should be viewed as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 heading into next season.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper wrapped up his rookie season with 72 receptions, 1,070 yards and six touchdowns, although he appear to hit the rookie wall b posting just 10 catches with 150 yards over his final four games. Still, he has a tremendous future and will be a fantasy staple for many years to come. He is a Top 10 option at his position heading into 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree failed to hit the century mark in his final eight games after three 100-yard games in the first eight outings, hitting the wall a little bit. He still managed 922 receiving yards with nine touchdowns to re-emerge as a solid WR2/3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues.
Sun, 03 Jan 2016 21:22:31 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Murray totals 1,066 yards and six rushing touchdowns to emerge as a low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in 2015. He will be a decent early-round fantasy option with a chance to continue his improvement in 2016.
