New York Jets WR Percy Harvin may make perfect sense for the Oakland Raiders, with Harvin expected to be released by the Jets. Raiders offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave maximized Harvin's talent with the Minnesota Vikings in 2012.
Fantasy Tip: Harvin is hard to put a finger on. He'll surely have some sort of fantasy value in 2015, depending on where he lands. In Oakland, it'd be a bit of a mystery how they'd use him, but surely Musgrave has interesting ideas alongside youngster's Derek Carr and Latavius Murray. No matter where Harvin lands, he'll likely have more value in PPR leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The free-agent running back market will be flooded with plenty of talent in 2015, so McFadden isn't likely to find a great deal from interested parties. However, he could still yield some decent fantasy value next year, depending on where he lands. Health has always been the question for him.

Detroit Lions impending free-agent DT Ndamukong Suh will meet with the Oakland Raiders next week, according to a source familiar with the Raiders' plans. Suh could be a perfect fit in head coach Jack Del Rio's four-man defensive front. General manager Reggie McKenzie wasn't afraid to throw around cash last offseason, and Oakland has more than $57 million in salary cap space in 2015.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is expected to be aggressively pursued by the Oakland Raiders, according to sources. The Raiders have $56.6 million to spend, and Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie helped draft him four years ago.
Fantasy Tip: Cobb is unlikely to repeat his 91-1,287-12 monster 2014 if he lands on a rebuilding team. He'd make a high-end WR2 without a lot of upside in Oakland. The presence of possession receiver James Jones could keep enough attention off of Cobb to allow him to remain a low-end WR1.

The Oakland Raiders plan to release DE LaMarr Woodley, a league source said Sunday, March 1. He made just five tackles in six games before his season ended due to a torn biceps. The Raiders save $5.187 million against the salary cap without adding any dead money with the transaction.

Fantasy Tip: If Thomas lands in Oakland, he would immediately become one of Derrick Carr's top targets, especially in the red zone. He probably won't put up the numbers he did in Denver, but Thomas should still be considered a TE1 as long as he remains healthy.

Fantasy Tip: The days of Jones-Drew being an RB1 are over. If he is cut and finds a new team, he'll likely be no more than a complementary running back. If he stays, he'll probably back up Latavius Murray. Murray has RB2 potential if he starts in Oakland's backfield.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb has recovered from injury issues that plagued him in 2013, but a move like this might hurt his fantasy value depending on if he goes to a team with a lower-quality quarterback. It's hard to imagine Green Bay letting him go, so stay tuned.
