The Oakland Raiders fire sale continues as they have traded wide receiver Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys for a 2019 first-round pick. This is the second movement of a high-profile name since the start of the season as the Raiders sent Khalil Mack to the Chicago Bears for two first-round picks. 

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has come under fire ever since the Mack deal went down, but fans have to be excited about the number of picks they'll have in the first round these next couple of seasons before moving to Las Vegas. That number stands at five (with the potential for more). 


Dallas gets the prototypical wide receiver they have been looking for all season -- their 10 receptions per game accumulated from the wide receiver position ties them for fifth-worst in the NFL. 

While Cooper has been unbelievably inconsistent throughout his career, a change of scenery may be just exactly what he needs. There's no doubt the Cowboys will try to pepper him with targets, so Cooper owners in fantasy may have just had their season revived.
