Week 8 Wrap-Up: Are the Raiders actually better without Amari Cooper?

Week 8's Sunday action has come to a close, and (a bit unexpectedly) the Oakland Raiders showed life. After scoring 13 total points in crushing, back-to-back losses, Derek Carr and the offense scored 28 points. The defense couldn't stop Marlon Mack and the suddenly-juggernaut Colts though, but still, it begs the question: could the Raiders be a more viable fantasy resource sans Amari Cooper?


Our experts analyze that and much more on this week's podcast. They also break down the Panthers demolition of the best defense in the league, along with Todd Gurley's continued MVP-season and the stunning nature of Adrian Peterson's fight against Father Time.


Our experts then hear your thoughts on players you are no longer going to bench after Week 8 (welcome back, Larry Fitzgerald). (20:40)


They also offer up a couple of pickup options for Week 9 when Arizona, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, New York Giants, and Philadelphia will be on bye. (32:20)
