RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

There was no outlook written for Amari Cooper.

2017

What is Derek Carr's obsession with Michael Crabtree? For the second year in a row, the ineffective Crabtree (6.9 YPT, 33rd) saw more looks (145) than Cooper (8.7 YPT, 13th) did (132), especially in the red zone where Crabtree got 21 targets to Cooper's 13. While Cooper gained 150 more yards despite the lower volume, Crabtree outscored him eight to five. At 6-1, 211 and with 4.43 speed, Cooper is a nice blend of size and game-breaking speed. He's also quick and athletic and runs crisp routes. While Cooper had only two catches of 40-plus, he brought in 21 of 20-plus (4th) despite being 15th in targets. The question for Cooper once again is volume -- his skills and role make him a safe bet to reach 1,000 yards and half a dozen TDs, but his ceiling is limited by Crabtree's heavier workload, especially from in close. Adding insult to injury, slot man Seth Roberts also saw a whopping 21 of his 77 targets in the red zone, effectively freezing Cooper out, though we'd expect significant regression on that front. The Raiders didn't make any significant additions to the passing offense -- Jared Cook figures to be a lowend tight end, and Cordarrelle Patterson more of a return man than a source of targets, so it's still possible Cooper claims his rightful share of the team's aerial output. Even if he doesn't, the floor is still high for the 23-year old.

2016

Cooper's rookie year was more or less what one would expect. While he eclipsed 1,000 receiving yards, making him only the 15th rookie to do so since the merger, he scored only six times, and his 8.2 YPT placed him 16th among the league's 32 100-target wide receivers. But perhaps the bigger surprise was Cooper not being the top target on his own team. Despite playing all 16 games, he finished with 16 fewer targets than Michael Crabtree, a castoff from the 49ers whose career seemed on its last legs. At 6-1, 211, Cooper has decent size, and his 4.42 40 time is above average. He's a strong route-runner, quick in and out of breaks and willing to go over the middle of the field. He also makes big plays his six catches for 40-plus yards tied for sixth in the league, even though he was only 16th in targets. Heading into 2016, Cooper should supplant Crabtree as the team's target leader. Receivers typically make dramatic improvements in their second seasons, and while David Carr is no Drew Brees, he is a competent quarterback who should also get better in Year 3 as his rapport with Cooper grows.

2015

The fourth overall pick in this year's draft, Cooper won't hurt for opportunities in Oakland. The question is of what quality. While some are excited about quarterback Derek Carr's 21-TD, 12-INT rookie season, it came with a 5.5 YPA, last by a wide margin among the 36 quarterbacks with 200 or more pass attempts. To be sure, Cooper should be an immediate upgrade over Carr's targets from last season, and it's likely he'll be the team's clear No. 1 out of the gate even with newly signed Michael Crabtree around. But this is a bottom-of-the-barrel organization trying to improve a passing game that ranked 26th in yards and last in efficiency. Cooper himself is an interesting prospect because for such an early pick he lacks the elite size/speed profile of an A.J. Green or Julio Jones. But at 6-1, 211, he's above average in height and weight, and his 4.42 40 is fast, just not blazingly so. Cooper's especially polished as a route-runner, quick and fluid in and out of breaks and willing to take hits and catch balls in traffic. And he was massively productive in college. But while some have compared him to Marvin Harrison, no one is comparing his quarterback to Peyton Manning.
