While the compensation was much better than most expected, it now seems that the downtrodden Raiders are going into fire-sale mode ahead of the October 30 trade deadline.

Jon Gruden seems to be cleaning house with the Oakland Raiders by stockpiling draft picks and trading away their best players, but the latest blockbuster deal was apparently set in motion by the player, not the coach.

The Cowboys entered the season hoping a committee of receivers could make up the production lost when Dez Bryant was released in the offseason. If their scoring unit is unable to turn things around in 2018, the Raiders could be acquiring a top-10 pick in next April's draft.

Cooper, the fourth overall pick in the 2015 draft, has 22 catches for 280 yards and a touchdown in six games this season. They attempted to sign Sammy Watkins in free agency, but he opted to join the Kansas City Chiefs. The previous two deals, for the Seahawks' Joey Galloway and the Lions' Roy Williams, are two of the worst in franchise history.

Dallas receivers have just one 100-yard game combined through seven games, by Cole Beasley in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville. "His past drops and injuries have been the biggest concerns".

The scout followed up by saying Cooper was a different player in his first two years.

The Cowboys front office, led by Jerry Jones and his son Stephen, chose Option B.

If Cooper is able to earn the trust of quarterback Dak Prescott, it could be worth the wait for fantasy managers. He is now in the league's concussion protocol.
