Sun, 14 Sep 2014 12:27:18 -0700

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew questionable

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 15:24:41 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is questionable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: It is possible that Jones-Drew could play, but he could be limited and is not worth the $4,900 (9.80% of cap) cost at FantasyScore. If Jones-Drew does not play, look for Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray to get more work, but neither should be considered in FantasyScore.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew questionable?

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:29:31 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) remains questionable for the Week 2 game against the Houston Texans, according to head coach Dennis Allen.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew could play, but he almost certainly isn't worth spending $4,900 (9.8% of cap) at FantasyScore on. Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray will receive a boost in value if MJD doesn't play, but they're both risky options, as well.

Raiders | Raiders to split carries without MJD

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 13:15:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders RBs Darren McFadden and Latavius Murray will both receive a crack at the running back duties in Week 2 against the Houston Texans with RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) unlikely to play, according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson. The Raiders only had 25 yards rushing on 12 carries in Week 1 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: McFadden and Murray will each cost only the minimum for running backs ($3,700) at FantasyScore this weekend. How they'll be used is anyone's guess at this point. Consider both backs weak flex options against the Texans.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew likely out

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 05:32:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is expected to miss the Week 2 game, according to multiple sources. Jones-Drew had a small bandage covering a surgical site below his index finger, and his hand was swollen Thursday, Sept. 11. He said he didn't break his hand, however, multiple sources have reported that he did break his hand. He's not expected to miss a lot of time.

Fantasy Tip: Darren McFadden ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) becomes a great bargain on FantasyScore against the Houston Texans this weekend. Latavius Murray should see some action as well, at the same fantasy price tag.

Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew may be back soon

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 11:11:24 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is not expected to miss much time, if any, after undergoing a procedure on his broken right hand, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Jones-Drew could sit out this week to allow his hand to heal, but his status for Week 2 is uncertain at this point. Jones-Drew costs $4,900 at FantasyScore, which may be risky since he could be limited if he is able to play. Darren McFadden could be a solid option at $3,700 if he gets the start.

Wed, 10 Sep 2014 22:06:52 -0700

Oakland Raiders LB Nick Roach (concussion) has not yet been cleared to practice. He is still making his way back from a concussion suffered Aug. 22. Head coach Dennis Allen was optimistic Wednesday, Sept. 10, that Roach is making some progress. "He's doing better," Allen said. "He did a little bit more today. We're following a protocol and we're going to stick with it. Whenever he's ready to go, we'll slide him right back in there."
