I wouldn't really say that 90 targets is "ample" especially considering he's had 130 each of the past two seasons. I'd also be a bit more worried if any other receiver on the Raiders had been doing well, Crabtree is set to have his worst season in terms of yards since 2013 when he only played 5 games and the second worst season of his career. Carr has had a massive regression this year with almost all of his stats nearly identical to what they were his rookie year (and his int% is actually a bit higher) which could also be because they changed OCs this year but is still at least somewhat on Carr. Ideally this would fix itself next year/in the offseason.lukkynumber13 wrote: ↑Fri Dec 29, 2017 10:18 pmI think Sammy.
1. Both guys have suffered from injuries throughout their careers (Sammy is at least healthy now, and has been all year)
2. Both have great draft pedigree and everything that comes with being a top-flight prospect.
3. Both guys have excelled against NFL competition for chunks of 2 years each.
4. For me, the tiebreaker is that Amari has been given ample opportunity to be involved in his team's success this year, and has largely squandered it. Sammy has not yet been given the keys to the sports car, but the targets he has received have led to immense production.
That, and this more of a personal belief, but I think Cooper has been playing a bit hurt this year. He had a knee injury that was bad enough to make him lose multiple weeks of the preseason and had him iffy going into the year and I think it's partly to blame for his issues.
Either way they're still about neck and neck for me, as of right now Watkins has the better QB and a better system but Cooper has a bigger workload (although not so much this year) and is a year younger so still a toss up for fantasy value in my opinion.
