Derek Carr: Amari Cooper will 'compete and make plays'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Raiders QB Derek Carr answered questions about WR Amari Cooper:

What was your reaction when the Raiders drafted Amari Cooper?
Derek Carr: Excitement. I knew we were going to get a good player with the No. 4. We were going to get someone good, and we did. I was very excited to see Amari come to this team.

What does he bring to this offense that was missing last year?
Carr: He’s really good in and out his breaks. He has good command of his route tree. He’s going to be a productive player for us.

What are your expectations for Cooper in Year 1? Do you think he can have an impact.
Carr: I think my expectations of him are the same as he has for himself. I just want to see him come in, compete and make plays, and I think we will see him do that.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Raiders were hurting for WR help and seem to have helped Carr and the offense by signing Michael Crabtree and drafting Cooper. Cooper already ranks as a low-end WR2 on our list, an area you haven't often seen Raiders ranked in the recent past. Crabtree is having a nice camp and that should only help Cooper, who we project for a line of 75-1,042-6
