• Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 9/25/16 8:12pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray carried 10 times for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans. Outside of his 22-yard scoring scamper, he has 15 rushing yards on his nine other totes.

    Huddle Up: Murray has scored a rushing touchdown in each of his three games so far, but his rushing yardage total has also decreased in each of his games to date. Still, he remains a low-end RB1 in all leagues because of his touchdowns.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 9/25/16 8:11pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 21 of his 35 pass attempts for a season-low 249 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Carr has managed at least 249 passing yards and one or more TD passes in each of his three starts. He has emerged as a borderline QB1/2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, especially when the matchup is favorable.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 8:14pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper was targeted nine times in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans, but he picked up just four receptions for 62 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is averaging five receptions for game, but his yardage totals have decreased in each game this season. He was drafted as a bona fide WR1 in most fantasy formats, but is looking more like a WR2 so far.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 9/25/16 8:13pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree hauled in eight receptions for 102 yards on a game-high 11 targets in the Week 3 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree has developed a nice rapport with Derek Carr, racking up at least four receptions in each of his three games while posting 87 or more yards in two of his three outings. He has re-emerged as a solid WR2 in most fantasy formats and will remain so as long as he can avoid the injury bug.

  • DeAndre Washington - RB
    Posted 9/24/16 8:18pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington should 'blossom' as a receiving threat as the season progresses, according to beat writer Eddie Paskal.

    Huddle Up: Washington is a must-own handcuff to Latavius Murray, and if he becomes a steady factor in the passing game, he could be a flex option in PPR leagues by the end of the year.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/23/16 9:32pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper is averaging 18.9 yards per catch this season, which ranks second among players with at least 10 receptions.

    Huddle Up: Cooper is a fantasy star in the making at the receiver position, and he is no worse than a WR2 against Tennessee in Week 3.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 9/19/16 9:40am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray will continue to lose carries to DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard, based on comments made by head coach Jack Del Rio following a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. ?All of our running backs are pretty good. We were running the ball well, and they?re all going to play,? Del Rio said.

    Huddle Up: Murray averaged 7.1 yards per carry versus the Falcons with a long run of 18, so his role wasn't being reduced due to ineffectiveness. He also boosted his fantasy bottom line by adding six catches for 44 yards, while Week 1 standout Richard was mostly ineffective. Murray owners may want to see what he can fetch in trade offers this week since his upside will be obviously be limited in a committee, but his offensive line is good enough for him to maintain RB2 value even with a limited workload.

  • Jalen Richard - RB
    Posted 9/17/16 9:24am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray is still expected to remain the feature back despite losing some carries to Jalen Richard, DeAndre Washington and Jamize Olawale in Week 1, according to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.

    Huddle Up: Murray was forced to settle for 14 carries against the New Orleans Saints last week, but that may have been just as much about seeing limited work during the preseason as it was anything else. Expect Richard and Washington to remain involved just enough to keep Murray out of the RB1 discussion but no so much that he can't be considered an every-week starter.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 9/17/16 6:15pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington had five carries for 14 yards in Week 1, and RB Latavius Murray said Washington is just scratching the surface and will see his 'fair share' this season.

    Huddle Up: Three different players scored rushing touchdowns for Oakland in Week 1, but Washington wasn't among them. He could ultimately emerge as the No. 2 option behind Murray, but Washington is mainly an asset in keeper leagues for now.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 9/11/16 7:26pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had a team-high seven receptions for 87 yards in the Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also had the key game-winning two-point conversion reception late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree was targeted nine times and looked like a solid low-end WR2 for most fantasy owners. This was a very favorable matchup against a poor Saints secondary. The Raiders face another favorable matchup in Week 2 with a visit from the Atlanta Falcons, a team that allowed four passing touchdowns in Week 1.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 9/11/16 7:25pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper posted six receptions for 137 yards in Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints. He was targeted a game-high 11 times. He also hauled in a two-point conversion reception.

    Huddle Up: Cooper was targeted as more of a WR2 on draft day in most fantasy leagues, but he has WR1 ability as he continues to improve. Derek Carr looked to him early and often, trusting him in crunch time the most. He is off to a great start to the 2016 season, and faces a favorable matchup in Week 2 against an Atlanta Falcons team that allowed four passing scores in the opener.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 9/11/16 7:24pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray rushed 14 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the New Orleans Saints. He also added a 13-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: Murray's fantasy owners likely weren't pleased when they saw the highlights from the corner of their eye and it was Jalen Richard, not Murray, running for a long fourth-quarter TD. However, Murray still had a fairly productive game. He remains a solid low-end RB1 in most fantasy formats despite the presence and occasional touches by Richard, DeAndre Washington and even Jamize Olawale.

  • Michael Crabtree - WR
    Posted 8/28/16 9:31pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree said he has been practicing all the routes during practice and continues to improve his chemistry with QB Derek Carr.

    Huddle Up: Crabtree was a potent complement to Amari Cooper last year, and he should land firmly in WR3 territory again in 2016.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 8/27/16 9:49pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray had a limited role in the team's third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Tennessee Titans, but head coach Jack Del Rio said it is not indicative of Murray's job being in question. 'We saw him last year. We need to find out who will be the backup,' Del Rio said.

    Huddle Up: Murray didn't do much in his limited snaps and touches, but he is the unquestioned No. 1 tailback in Oakland and a solid low-end RB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Clive Walford - TE
    Posted 8/11/16 11:09pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford said he is more comfortable in the offense this year, and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Walford is going to be a 'big part' of what the Raiders do on offense.

    Huddle Up: Walford injured his knee in an offseason ATV accident and had yet to practice. With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree drawing extra attention on the outside, the athletic tight end should be able to exploit since coverage down the middle of the field. Walford could be one of the steals of the draft if he stays healthy this year. He currently has an ADP in Round 15.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 8/9/16 3:30pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said a foot injury nearly shut down his 2015 rookie season that ended in him failing to top 20 receiving yards in three of his four December games. Cooper said Monday, Aug. 8, in an interview with KGMZ in San Francisco, he was not himself and everything about his play was affected. Cooper noted his inability to create separation off the line and out of breaks because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Thanks in large part to his late slump, Cooper finished 23rd among fantasy WRs a year ago, but we see a big leap and increased production in Year 2, ranking him as a low-end WR1.

  • Clive Walford - TE
    Posted 8/8/16 3:10pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford is not listed as the starting tight end on Raiders' initial depth chart. TE Lee Smith is listed ahead of Walford.

    Huddle Up: Despite the early depth chart, Walford remains the tight end deep-league fantasy GMs want as he had 50 targets and 28 receptions last season while Smith, regarded as the team's blocking tight end, had 13 and 12.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 8/5/16 3:34pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray returned to practice Friday, Aug. 5, after he sat out Thursday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: This a key pre- and early season stretch for Murray, who finished with the fourth-most touches (307) in the league last season, but failed to earn the full trust of the Raiders' coaching staff. We currently have him ranked as a RB3.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 7/25/16 8:42am ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper said he has a better idea of where QB Derek Carr wants to go with the football this season, and Carr said he is able to throw the ball to Cooper earlier because he knows where Cooper will be. Cooper has appeared more relaxed this season, and retired WR Jerry Rice said Cooper's attitude will help him avoid the drops that hurt him at times as a rookie.

    Huddle Up: Sounds like things are lining up for Cooper to take the next step, building on a solid rookie season and teaming with Carr to present one of the league's up-and-coming tandems.

  • George Atkinson III - RB
    Posted 7/18/16 9:42am ET

    Oakland Raiders RB George Atkinson III impressed with his straight-line speed and explosiveness during offseason workouts, and he will have a chance to earn more reps in training camp.

    Huddle Up: The expectation is that rookie DeAndre Washington is slotted for primary backup duty behind Latavius Murray, so he'll be Atkinson's primary competition for that job. And according to most depth charts Atkinson will also have to go through Taiwan Jones, Marcel Reese, Roy Helu and Jamize Olawale to get touches so he'll have to continue impressing just to make the team.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 7/7/16 7:41pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is more polished and isn't a gunslinger, according to former QB Brett Favre.

    Huddle Up: In his second season, Carr finished with 339 fantasy points -- 13th among QBs -- and with that year of chemistry established with wideouts Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, don't be surprised to see Carr crack the QB1 ranks this season. He's certainly someone to keep an eye on if you wait to draft a QB.

  • Amari Cooper - WR
    Posted 6/28/16 4:04pm ET

    Oakland Raiders WR Amari Cooper has received praise for his performance during the team's offseason program, and he has continued to build rapport with QB Derek Carr. He has appeared confident and comfortable this spring.

    Huddle Up: Cooper struggled down the home stretch last season, but his talent and potential are undeniable and he still should be drafted as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 this summer.

  • DeAndre Washington - RB
    Posted 6/23/16 1:23pm ET

    Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington spent some time with the first-team offense during the team's minicamp, although there has been nothing guaranteed about Washington's role going forward. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave see Washington as a player who can do a little bit of everything, plus help out on special teams.

    Huddle Up: Latavius Murray finished fourth in the league with 307 offensive touches, but the Silver & Black didn't exactly seemed thrilled with a the quality and consistency of Murray's work and that's where Washington, the team's fifth-round pick, fits in as a ready-to-step-in backup and/or change-of-pace option.

  • Derek Carr - QB
    Posted 6/11/16 11:46am ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Amari Cooper have shown good chemistry during organized team activities. The two players were not able to work together last season because Carr was recovering from an injury.

    Huddle Up: No surprise that Carr and Cooper are hooking up. Any extra chemistry they can develop heading into September will only improve both of their fantasy prospects.

  • Clive Walford - TE
    Posted 5/25/16 10:14am ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) is expected to be cleared well before the beginning of training camp. He did not participate in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24.

    Huddle Up: Bigger things are expected of Walford, and him getting on the field as soon as possible will help in that regard. It will also help fantasy owners put a little more faith in him.

  • Connor Cook - QB
    Posted 5/15/16 11:03pm ET

    Oakland Raiders QB Connor Cook will vie for the backup position with QB Matt McGloin. Cook impressed head coach Jack Del Rio at rookie minicamp. 'I think he's been outstanding,' Del Rio said. 'Obviously he is intelligent. He asks good questions. He's got arm talent. It's a matter of getting familiar [with] what we do and how we do it.'

    Huddle Up: Cook, the Raiders' surprise fourth-round pick may very well end up with the backup gig, but even his dynasty-league value is low with a young and rising QB ahead of him in Derek Carr.

  • Clive Walford - TE
    Posted 5/3/16 3:29pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford (knee) suffered a knee injury earlier this offseason in an all-terrain vehicle accident, according to sources. He is expected back for training camp, and one source said the injury may not be as bad as originally thought. It's unclear what his injury was, but indications are that he's weeks removed from surgery.

    Huddle Up: Scary news -- particularly after the death of the Ravens' Tray Walker in a dirt-bike accident earlier this offseason -- but it sounds like Walford escaped serious injury. The Raiders really have not made any corresponding moves in free agency or the draft, either, so it appears they are planning to their starting tight end on the field in training camp and the preseason.

  • Clive Walford - TE
    Posted 3/31/16 3:50pm ET

    Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford's role is expected to be expanded in 2016.

    Huddle Up: As a rookie third-round pick last season, Walford finished second among Oakland tight ends with 28 catches, but did lead the position with 329 yards and three TDs. In any case, the Raiders saw enough that fellow TE Mychal Rivera (32-280-1) is reportedly now on the trading block.

  • Andre Holmes - WR
    Posted 3/15/16 10:17am ET

    Free-agent WR Andre Holmes (Raiders) re-signed with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, March 15, on a one-year deal worth up to $3 million with $1 million guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Holmes flashed a bit a couple seasons ago but was pushed to the back burner by Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree last season. He's a depth guy in the Oakland receiver rotation--not an easy place from which to be fantasy-relevant.
