2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 13 ISSUES: DEREK CARR STATUS SHAKY WITH LIKELY NO CRABTREE, COOPER

After a slow start to the season amid heightened expectations, Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has performed like the QB 1 that many anticipated over the last month.  The good times may not keep rolling into Week 13 however due to some injury/misbehavior issues that could decimate the Raiders' receiving corps versus the New York Giants.  While a tasty matchup for Carr on paper, top wideout Michael Crabtree has already been suspended for two games due to the nasty fight he engaged in with Denver Broncos QB Aqib Talib last week and fellow starter Amari Cooper's status is also murky after he suffered a concussion in the same game.  So now what we have here is a scenario where Carr could be without both Crabtree (a certainty) and Cooper (a possibility) which makes banking on him to put forth big numbers in a clinching week in fantasy football could be asking a lot.  In addition, third receiver Seth Roberts becomes an immediate person of interest if both Crabtree and Cooper are out as he would likely see a major uptick in targets along with tight end Jared Cook.  Both guys would be worth starting in all fantasy football leagues under that scenario but this is a fluid situation which bears watching the rest of the week.
