Oakland Raiders news, rumors and injuries
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 17:51:43 -0800
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) did not take a single snap under center last week. Not being under center eliminated any potentially risky center-to-quarterback exchanges with Carr's injured finger. Carr still managed 260 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 13 win. Head coach Jack Del Rio did not indicate if the Raiders would use the same strategy this week.
Fantasy Tip: Carr has been one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL this year, wherever he's taking a snap. He'll be in a hostile environment against the Kansas City Chiefs this Thursday night, but the Chiefs have been porous against the pass this year. Carr is a QB1 consideration again this week.

Fantasy Tip: If not for the stat line salvaging 37-yard touchdown in the second half, Cooper's performance was mostly underwhelming. He'll look to get back on track in Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday.

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree (finger) racked up seven receptions for 74 yards with a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He was targeted 11 times. Crabtree left the game briefly to have his left ring finger popped back into place.
Fantasy Tip: Crabtree returned to the game with his ring finger and pinkie taped together, and he did not skip a beat. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray (ankle) rushed 20 times for 82 yards with a pair of scores in the Week 13 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. He also had three catches for 23 yards to give him over 100 total yards from scrimmage.
Fantasy Tip: Murray was a question mark this week with an ankle injury, but he showed no ill-effects of that ailment. He has eight rushing scores over the past six games, and 11 touchdowns in 10 outings. He remains a solid low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) completed 19 of his 35 pass attempts for 260 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills. He also ran twice for four yards.
Fantasy Tip: Carr did not show any ill-effects from the finger injury he suffered last week. He remains a fantasy must-have in all leagues heading into Week 14 against the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night, although with sub-freezing temperatures the offense could take a while to warm up.
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 11:55:28 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Crabtree has been able to play with the injury and posted 110 yards in the last game. He should continue to see a solid amount of targets in the passing game and can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 11:50:31 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Murray should be handle his usual workload but is coming off two disappointing performances in the last two games. He can still be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Carr probably will not be limited by the injury and likely will be asked to throw as much as he had before the injury. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
