Following a bust-worthy, one-catch performance on Monday night, there's actually some good news for Amari Cooper's fantasy owners.


The Oakland Raiders' coaching staff is saying they want to find more ways to get Cooper involved. This comes after the "stud" wideout got just three targets in the Raiders' opener. 

Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said they plan to move Cooper around the formation "a lot." And that proved to also be the case in Monday night's season opener -- with underwhelming results. 

Despite 19 snaps from the slot (45.2 percent of his routes), Cooper still came away with just one catch for nine total yards.

Head coach Jon Gruden also said Cooper was open deep multiple times, but that quarterback Derek Carr passed up on those opportunities.

It's still hard to trust Cooper as the WR1/2 you drafted him to be against the Denver Broncos strong cornerback group in Week 2, but at least there's a concerted effort to get him the ball this week.
