Amari Cooper Staying Positive

This article first appeared on

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, who has just four catches for 23 yards during the team’s three-game losing streak, is trying to keep his frustration in check. He is coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and has averaged 78 catches, 1,112 yards and six touchdowns in his first two seasons in the NFL. Cooper is currently on pace for just 42 receptions for 378 yards and three touchdowns. He also entered last weekend leading the league with seven drops. “Just keep being me, just keep doing me, stay true to who I am and the ball will find me,” Cooper said. The good news is that Derek Carr (back) will be back in there this Sunday, so hopefully Carr can break out of his funk. He’s still tough to trust as a WR3 right now.
