  Oakland Raiders - Priority News
  News Statistics Roster  
Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 4/16/14 6:53pm et
The Oakland Raiders hope to trade QB Terrelle Pryor before the start of the offseason program Monday, April 21.
Huddle Up: The Raiders were unable to make their offense work with the run-first Pryor at the helm, so they're moving forward with Matt Schaub. We'll see what team wants to give the athletic Pryor a shot at a backup gig.

Jeremy Stewart - RB Posted 4/3/14 2:45pm et
Oakland Raiders RB Jeremy Stewart has signed his exclusive-rights tender.
Huddle Up: Stewart will stay in Oakland for a third straight year but, for fantasy purposes, is 4th in the team's RB pecking order behind Darren McFadden, Maurice Jones-Drew and Latavius Murray.

Jacoby Ford - WR Posted 4/1/14 9:47pm et
The New York Jets signed WR Jacoby Ford (Raiders) on Tuedsay, April 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Ford brings some speed and big-play ability to the Big Apple, but his reception totals have declined each season since his 25-catch debut in 2010. He also missed the 2012 season to injury.

Maurice Jones-Drew - RB Posted 3/28/14 11:24am et
The Oakland Raiders agreed with free-agent RB Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars) on a three-year deal. He's set to take a physical Friday, March 28, and sign the deal later in the day.
Huddle Up: Jones-Drew will share carries with Darren McFadden, or perhaps they can stagger their injuries so the Raiders always have at least one former elite back at their disposal. Either way, what little fantasy value there was in Oakland's backfield is now sliced in half.

Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 3/25/14 2:19pm et
Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said QB Terrelle Pryor likely will be released or traded in the near future. McKenzie said Pryor wants to be a starting quarterback next season.
Huddle Up: Pryor did finish second among all QBs with 576 rushing yards a year ago, but his starting run in Oakland lasted only 10 games, and it's hard to find another team at the moment where he'd have a decent chance to start right away.

Matt McGloin - QB Posted 3/23/14 4:00pm et
Now that the Oakland Raiders have traded for QB Matt Schaub, the team is content to keep QB Matt McGloin in a backup role. McGloin will likely be a No. 2, with QB Terrelle Pryor headed elsewhere.
Huddle Up: McGloin, who threw for 1,547 yards, 8 TDs and 8 picks in 7 starts as an undrafted rookie this past season, would seem to be an ideal backup for the veteran Schaub.

Matt Schaub - QB Posted 3/21/14 8:32pm et
The Oakland Raiders acquired QB Matt Schaub (Texans) Friday, March 26, in exchange for a 6th round draft pick. Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he believes Schaub could be the team's starting quarterback for more than one or two seasons.
Huddle Up: At minimum Schaub gives the Raiders flexibility if they don't like their quarterback options early in Round 1, or if they'd prefer to go another direction with that pick. Ideally he'll be a short-term solution/mentor for an incoming rookie, but if the Raiders opt to go with a pocket passer instead of a runner like Terrelle Pryor he could be a two-year option.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 3/11/14 6:13pm et
The Oakland Raiders have re-signed free-agent RB Darren McFadden to a one-year deal worth $4 million. However, only $100,000 of the deal is guaranteed.
Huddle Up: After it appeared that McFadden was headed elsewhere, he'll remain in Oakland for a 7th season on an incentive-stacked deal. But unless his durability improves, that does little to change his fantasy outlook as an injury-prone, underachieving back.

Charles Woodson - S Posted 2/25/14 11:44pm et
Oakland Raiders FS Charles Woodson definitely expects to play in 2014 and the Raiders have gone on record as saying they want him back. A reunion with the Green Bay Packers does not appear likely.
Huddle Up: Woodson, who will turn 38 in October, has a Bay Area winery and look for him to retire as Raider, possibly next offseason.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 1/16/14 10:38pm et
Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie said he expects impending free-agent RB Darren McFadden to hit the free-agent market this offseason.
Huddle Up: It's looking like McFadden's health will be some other team's concern after an injury-filled 6-year run in Oakland.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 1/14/14 7:20pm et
Ian Greengross, agent for Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Darren McFadden, said McFadden would like to re-sign with the Raiders this offseason but no contract talks have taken place at this time. Greengross said McFadden is open to accepting a complementary role next season.
Huddle Up: After a 6-year run with the Raiders filled with injuries (29 missed games) and unrealized expectations (only 1 1,000-yard rushing season), McFadden's days in Silver & Black appear to be over. If so, you can count on some team signing McFadden to a low-risk deal, and one immediate guess is Cincinnati, where former Raiders coach and McFadden supporter Hue Jackson has been promoted to offensive coordinator.

Dennis Allen - HC Posted 1/8/14 12:45pm et
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis said head coach Dennis Allen will remain with the team. 'We met this evening at the Raider facility, and the meeting went really well,' Davis said. 'We talked about a lot of things, from personnel issues to the coaches to a review of the past season to the draft and our needs for next season. We're ready to rock and roll.' Allen has two years remaining on his current four-year deal.
Huddle Up: While Allen keeps his job, there are plenty of other issues yet to deal with--like both of Oakland's running backs heading for free agency, or the big question mark at quarterback.

Dennis Allen - HC Posted 12/31/13 11:27am et
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis indicated Monday, Dec. 30, that no official decision has been made on the status of head coach Dennis Allen, but he gave every indication that Allen is likely to be back in 2014. General manager Reggie McKenzie is on even firmer ground, and it seems likely the GM is sticking with Allen, too.
Huddle Up: There were some rumblings about a shake-up in Oakland, but now it appears like Allen and McKenzie will get at least one more season to turn things around.

Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 12/31/13 4:01pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen isn't sure if the team's future quarterback is currently on their roster. Allen has said QB Matt McGloin has a future with the team but hasn't been as optimistic about QB Terrelle Pryor. 'I'm not sure that we have the quarterback of the future in the building right now, but again I think we'll go through the offseason evaluation process, I think we'll go back through all the tapes, we'll comb through everything. I do think we have a better idea of what we have at the quarterback position, but again I think, listen, that's the most important position on the football field,' Allen said.
Huddle Up: Both Prior and McGloin had brief flashes of success, but neither appears to be the solution in Oakland. A new quarterback might buy Dennis Allen a couple more seasons at the helm, but it's no guarantee.

Denarius Moore - WR Posted 12/27/13 11:48pm et
Oakland Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Moore, who back in Week 15 from a 3-game injury absence, has fallen to No. 3 in the Raiders' WR pecking order behind Rod Streater and Andre Holmes. Don't expect much in Week 17, even with a promising matchup against the Broncos' secondary.

Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 12/24/13 10:54pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen fired back Tuesday, Dec. 24, about the claims of QB Terrelle Pryor's agent, who said Monday, Dec. 23, that the coach is setting the quarterback up to fail by starting him in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos. "Well, first is, I'd say that's the stupidest thing I've ever frickin' heard,' Allen said. 'No coach in their right mind -- this isn't 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' This isn't made-for-TV drama. This is football, and we make our football decisions based solely on that. Nothing other than that."
Huddle Up: If you thought another lost season for the Silver & Black was going to end peacefully, think again.

Terrelle Pryor - QB Posted 12/23/13 11:54pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor will be the starting quarterback Week 17.
Huddle Up: Matt McGloin has been uninspiring at best over the past weeks, and Pryor could be a decent fantasy start in Week 17 given his rushing skills and favorable matchup against a banged-up Denver defense.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 12/20/13 6:30pm et
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (knee, ankle) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 20, and is probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: It totally figures that after McFadden already waylaid your initial fantasy plans but still led you to discover productive backup Rashad Jennings, he's now coming back just in time to take a piece out of Jennings' playoff value.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 12/16/13 6:08pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he expects RB Darren McFadden (ankle) to participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: The last time McFadden came back from injury, Jennings still got the bulk of the work. Keep an eye on the situation, though, especially if you are relying on Jennings.

Denarius Moore - WR Posted 12/13/13 6:55pm et
Oakland Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Moore has missed the last three games but could return this week against the Chiefs. If Moore plays, he's nothing more than a desperation WR4/5 given his matchup and the Raiders' shaky quarterback situation.

Darren McFadden - RB Posted 12/13/13 6:55pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said the team is considering placing RB Darren McFadden (ankle) on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: The Raiders could have saved time and put McFadden on IR in training camp. McFadden is out for Week 15 and likely the season.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/12/13 7:04pm et
Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Jennings has been a full practice participant 2 straight days and count on him starting Week 15 against the visiting Chiefs.

Denarius Moore - WR Posted 12/12/13 11:54pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) appears to be on track to play Week 15, but a decision has not been made at this point.
Huddle Up: Moore has missed the past 3 games and his return would be a boost to the Raiders' QBs but would muddle the WR situation where Rod Streater is currently the No. 1 wideout.

Denarius Moore - WR Posted 12/11/13 5:12pm et
Oakland Raiders WR Denarius Moore (shoulder) is participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: This would relegate Rod Streator back to the No. 2 job and Andre Holmes practically useless in terms of fantasy football.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/11/13 5:12pm et
Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) is participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Take note, especially if you were counting on Marcel Reece this week.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/11/13 7:19pm et
Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Jennings will start this week against the Chiefs and despite the tough matchup he should be considered a RB2 with Darren McFadden expected to miss the the game.

Matt McGloin - QB Posted 12/10/13 12:10am et
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Monday, Dec. 9, that QB Matt McGloin will start the final three regular season games, with QB Terrelle Pryor seeing spot duty.
Huddle Up: Pryor cut into McGloin's snaps in Week 13, and while the undrafted rookie remains the Silver & Black's top fantasy option, Pryor's presence presents a definite drawback.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/10/13 12:10am et
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings has passed his concussion test. He said Monday, Dec. 9, that he expects to be ready to play in Week 15.
Huddle Up: Definitely count on Jennings to return after his untimely Week 14 absence, and look for him to shoulder the majority of the Raiders' RB workload despite Marcel Reece's strong fill-in start Sunday.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/6/13 12:57am et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) still needs to pass some concussion tests before being cleared to play Week 14. Jennings practiced Thursday, Dec. 5 on a limited basis.
Huddle Up: Be cautiously optimistic about Jennings' chances of playing Sunday as he's been able to practice for 2 straight days. Meanwhile, fellow RB Darren McFadden has been sidelined all week with an ankle issue.

Rashad Jennings - RB Posted 12/6/13 8:46pm et
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (concussion) has still not been cleared to play in the Week 14 game against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Jennings has practiced on a limited basis but still hasn't been cleared to play. Darren McFadden is out Sunday but even if Jennings plays he'll be facing the Jets' top ranked rush defense, so owners should go with another option if possible.
