No one could have predicted the Raiders would start the season 2-3 after winning the AFC West in 2017. Worse yet, Derek Carr is dealing with a back injury that could keep him sidelined for a couple more weeks. The Raiders struggles don’t stop there as Amari Cooper has a disaster this season for the Oakland Raiders. Cooper has found his way on my fantasy football bench and for good reason, he stinks.

Head coach Jack Del Rio had the following on Cooper’s poor start:

 

“I wouldn’t say it was by design not to have him get more targets,” coach Jack Del Rio said after the loss, via the San Jose Mercury News. “The read went away from him a couple of times, a couple of times it was supposed to be to him. I’d like to see him get the ball more. To me it’s about execution right now. I’m not going to sit here and get into how or why individuals aren’t getting the ball. I don’t see where that’s going to help us.”

Cooper has the highest drop percentage of any receiver in the NFL. He’s only managed to reel in 39.4 percent of his targets. The last three games frankly have been ugly having four receptions for 23 yards. Only time will if Cooper can turn things around.
