Raiders | Marshawn Lynch will be used on early downs

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 11:13:15 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be on the field for first and second downs with the Raiders. RB DeAndre Washington, RB Jalen Richard and FB Jamize Olawale are expected to see time on third down.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch should receive most of the carries for the Raiders in 2017 and likely will not receive many targets in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues but will have more value in standard leagues.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch deal agreed to

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 05:29:24 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, April 26, and the two teams have agreed to compensation, according to sources. The NFL draft compensation will be a swap of late-round picks in 2018. The deal and swap are contingent on Lynch passing a physical. The one-year deal has a $3 million base salary with a chance to earn $2 million more if he reaches 1,000 yards. The max value of the contract is $8.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: The last we saw of Beast Mode, he rushed for just 417 yards and three scores on 111 attempts in an injury-riddled 2015. He just turned 31 and could still approach the 1,000-yard plateau. However, his upside in fantasy is minimal as an aging RB2.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch, Raiders still talking

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:34:42 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the Oakland Raiders are still talking about a revised contract, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider. "Nothing really new,'' Schneider said. "They're still talking. The steps after that were to be that if they came to an agreement, (Raiders GM) Reggie (McKenzie) and I would discuss a form of compensation."

Fantasy Tip: Lynch would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy if he lands with the Raiders.

Raiders | GM optimistic about Derek Carr extension

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 12:30:40 -0700

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie is optimistic about getting an extension for QB Derek Carr done before training camp, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Vic Tafur.

Fantasy Tip: Carr echoed similar thoughts last week, so this should get done in a timely fashion. The 26-year-old missed the tail end of last season with a broken fibula but has been a full participant at OTAs. At the moment, he slots in as a midrange fantasy QB1 with upside.

Raiders | Derek Carr fully participating in OTAs

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 18:22:55 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's (leg) surgically-repaired right fibula is healed enough to the point that he's able to be a full participant in the team's offseason training program, which began Monday, April 17. "I've been running, jumping, throwing, cutting, everything," Carr said. "So I'm ready to rock. I'm ready to do absolutely everything. I did everything my teammates did today. I'll do everything my teammates will do tomorrow."

Fantasy Tip: Carr enjoyed an MVP-caliber season in 2017, registering 3,937 passing yards to go with a terrific 28/6 TD/INT ratio in 15 games. Overall, he finished with a shiny 96.7 QB rating, and it looks like he might be in a position to pick up where he left off based on his health going into OTAs. Carr looks like he can be fully trusted again as a QB1 entering the new campaign.

NFL | Raiders-Beastmode union has deadline?

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 09:32:30 -0700

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) has an agreement in place to join the Oakland Raiders, if the Seattle Seahawks trade his rights. However, the deal may have a deadline of the 2017 NFL Draft. Oakland could move on if it drafts a power back, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: As this story evolves, we'll keep you updated. An Oakland-employed Lynch would be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 in fantasy drafts.
