Raiders | Michael Crabtree showing off hands

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:29:26 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree could be playing himself into a new contract this season as he continues to impress his new team. Crabtree's hands have been his strong suit throughout his career, and he's displaying those hands again with the Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree and WR Amari Cooper could make a formidable receiving duo in Oakland's new-look offense. It may take some time for Crabtree to adjust to his new team, but he's worth a look in WR4 or WR5 territory.

Raiders | Derek Carr to throw deeper?

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:17:47 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr may look to throw more downfield this year due to new WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, a new coaching staff and a more solid offensive line.

Fantasy Tip: Carr has a lot of weapons at his disposal with Cooper, Crabtree and some young, talented tight ends and running backs. Carr still needs to improve, and it could take some time to get used to the new coaching staff and roster. He should still make a solid backup fantasy quarterback.

Raiders | Khalil Mack provides versatility

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 14:02:17 -0700

Oakland Raiders LB Khalil Mack will be used in many ways this season, according to general manager Reggie McKenzie. Defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. said the Raiders are going to put Mack in a position to make plays, but his specialty may be rushing the passer. "He's pretty dog-gone good getting after the quarterback," McKenzie said. "He's really good going forward, and it's an opportunity to do a lot of different things with him. They're going to use Khalil in all kinds of ways. That's the way it should be."

Raiders | Michael Crabtree stands out

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 06:44:51 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree has been the star of the team's first three days of training camp, according to San Francisco Chronicle writer Vic Tafur, who categorized the wide receiver position as a team strength.

Fantasy Tip: This is encouraging for Crabtree's fantasy forecast, but we all know injuries are a concern, and seeing him do it over a full slate has become akin to spotting a sasquatch. Consider Crabtree a risky WR3 or ideal WR4 target.

Raiders | Trent Richardson's spot in jeopardy?

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:37:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson is likely competing with RB Michael Dyer for a spot on the 53-man roster, and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport puts Richardson's chances of making the final roster at 50-50.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson was expected to compete for the starting job, and if he ends up failing to make the roster, Latavius Murray becomes a safe RB2 option while Roy Helu would be worth a late flier in points-per-reception formats.

Raiders | Latavius Murray ready to prove himself

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 19:19:55 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray said he understands how important it is for him to perform well in 2015. "I know the success I've had doesn't matter," Murray said Friday, July 31. "What matters now is what I [do going] forward and what I do this upcoming season, this upcoming training camp. Again, do anything I can just to get better and help the team."

Fantasy Tip: While Murray is an unproven option, he was impressive when his role expanded late last season. With the No. 1 running back job his to lose in 2015, Murray should make a solid RB2.

Raiders | Rod Streater placed on NFI list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:41:19 -0700

Oakland Raiders WR Rod Streater (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Streater was limited to only three games last season because of a foot injury and may take things slow during training camp. Streater could have receive some targets this season but is not more than a late-round option or a waiver wire option during the season.

Raiders | Trent Richardson placed on NFI list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:37:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is expected to compete for the starting running back job when he is cleared to practice. He is likely the underdog in the competition but should see playing time even if he does not win the job. Richardson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as depth at the position.

Raiders | Trent Richardson not impressing

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:16:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson is rumored to being unimpressive with his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Latavius Murray seems to be the talk of camp and he could have a breakout year as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3. T-Rich shouldn't be drafted as much more than a handcuff unless he carves out a decent-sized role.

Raiders | Former OAK WRs talk Amari Cooper

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:59:14 -0700

Oakland Raiders rookie WR Amari Cooper was compared to former Oakland WR Tim Brown by former WR Jerry Rice. Rice said the Raiders have their new Tim Brown in Cooper. Brown himself said Cooper is a superb receiver who he thinks will dominate right away.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper is widely considered the top rookie wide receiver in the fantasy football realm this year. Cooper has the size and talent to succeed right away, but playing with a second-year quarterback could mean a learning curve. Still, there are less advisable moves than taking him as your second wide receiver.

Raiders | Trent Richardson sees opportunity

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:49:52 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson plans to make the most of a fresh start in Oakland. "I know what they [the coaching staff] expect and how they're going to spread the field, putting me in a position to be successful," said Richardson. "With that, in talking to [Head] Coach [Jack Del Rio], he just said there is just a lot of opportunity out here. He said he isn't going to promise me anything, but if I come in and work, I can be that bell cow," Richardson said Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has scored just six touchdowns, while playing in 31 games for two teams over the past two seasons. Latavius Murray should be expected to enter the season as the Raiders' starting running back, as he has far more upside than Richardson.

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 05:25:45 -0700
