Oakland to sign WR Crabtree to extension -- Wed Dec 9 7:34 pm --
Wideout ready to cash in on career year
Michael Crabtree won't be testing the free-agent market again next offseason. The Raiders will be signing the wide receiver to a long-term contract extension, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday, via a source informed of the situation. The deal is expected to be finalized soon. According to Rapoport, the extension will be roughly $8 million per year.
FF Today's Take:Oakland's offense is headed in the right direction and fantasy owners should take notice. Locking up Michael Crabtree gives quarterback Derek Carr two productive targets on the outside while Latavius Murray heads up the ground game. Crabtree is currently on pace to match or exceed his career bests in nearly every relevant statistic this year and will head into 2016 as a solid WR3.
Raiders' Murray and Cooper probable for Sunday-- Fri Nov 13 4:50 pm --
Both expect to suit up for tilt with Vikings
Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray and wide receiver Amari Cooper are listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. Murray was forced from last week's game with a concussion, while Cooper emerged with a quad issue.(The Score)
FF Today's Take:These appear to be nothing more than minor injuries. Cooper is a must-start this week while Murray is shaping up to be a low-end RB2.
