  Raiders | Kaelin Burnett placed on IR    Mon Sep 1, 09:20 PM

The Oakland Raiders re-signed LB Kaelin Burnett (knee) and placed him on the season-ending reserve/injured list Monday, Sept. 1.


  Raiders | Derek Carr to start    Mon Sep 1, 06:33 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will be the starting quarterback Week 1.

Footballguys view: And there you have it. The only rookie quarterback to start in Week 1 will be in Oakland. Carr has a strong arm and good accuracy throwing deep. His problems arise when under pressure. He doesn't handle pressure well, and he's not quite as athletic as his older brother David Carr. The rookie doesn't have great weapons around him, so we're expecting Carr to get off to a rough start.

  Raiders | Greg Little waived    Sat Aug 30, 07:23 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Greg Little was waived Saturday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: Little can't catch....or we should say he struggles to catch the ball consistently. That's a problem if your job title is wide RECEIVER.

  Raiders | Waiting to name starting QB    Fri Aug 29, 08:09 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) is still recovering from an elbow injury. Head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Aug. 29, that he still wants to see where Schaub is physically before making the final call on his Week 1 starting quarterback.

Footballguys view: With Schaub banged up we could see rookie Derek Carr as the team's starter. Carr has a strong arm, but his game falls apart under pressure. We're not overly excited about any piece of the Raiders passing game.

  Raiders | Kaelin Burnett nursing injury    Fri Aug 29, 08:07 PM

Oakland Raiders LB Kaelin Burnett (knee) suffered a knee injury in practice, and was inactive for the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28. Head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Aug. 29, that it wasn't worth the risk to play him.

  Raiders | Matt Schaub to throw    Thu Aug 28, 03:41 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) did some light throwing Wednesday, Aug. 28. The team will have him throw again Monday, Sept. 1, to see where his arm is at.

Footballguys view: Could Derek Carr end up starting the Week 1 game against the New York Jets? It's a good matchup given that the secondary is a mess but the front seven can bring pressure and Carr can struggle against that. If Schaub's elbow keeps hurting and Carr's ribs are OK we might see him under center. Neither of these two are anyone you want to depend on at this point. Schaub is ranked as QB3 and Carr a QB4, though Carr is the clear choice in terms of dynasty value.

  Raiders | Derek Carr entrenched as backup    Wed Aug 27, 10:21 PM

  Raiders | Two more waived    Tue Aug 26, 07:19 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Juron Criner and PK Kevin Goessling were placed on no-recall waivers Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Criner has flashed in practices and he is a big body with an even bigger catch radius, but he has failed to stand out in a Raiders wide receiver group that is in the bottom half of the league. He could get a call from another team that liked him in the 2012 draft.

  Raiders | Matt Schaub still out    Tue Aug 26, 04:24 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) missed his third straight day of practice with elbow soreness Tuesday, Aug. 26, but head coach Dennis Allen doesn't think Schaub's injury is serious, and the team expects him to play in Week 1 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Schaub being replaced as the Raiders starter is still a matter of when, not if, unless he picks up his level of play from the preseason. He still looked like a quarterback with broken confidence.

  Raiders | Sio Moore returns to practice    Tue Aug 26, 04:20 PM

Oakland Raiders LB Sio Moore (neck) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 26, four days after being taken off the field on a stretcher. Moore had been diagnosed with a neck sprain, but it's unknown if he'll play in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28.

Footballguys view: Great news for Moore and the Raiders defense. His versatility can give the defense lots of looks when combined with Khalil Mack, who like More can rush the passer and drop into coverage and everything in between.

  Raiders | D.J. Hayden to PUP    Tue Aug 26, 09:03 AM

Oakland Raiders CB D.J. Hayden (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Footballguys view: Hayden's career has been another black mark on Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie's record. The Raiders did at least trade down in the first round of the 2013 draft before taking Hayden, but it has gone about as you'd expect for a player that had massive medical concerns.

  Raiders | No concerns over Matt Schaub    Mon Aug 25, 07:26 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) is expected to start in Week 1 against the New York Jets, according to head coach Dennis Allen.

Footballguys view: We're not worried about his elbow either....we're concerned with his lack of confidence and the lack of playmakers around him in the passing game. Allen is not worried about Schaub's injury and is holding firm with Schaub as the starter.

  Raiders | Matt Schaub elbow non-issue    Mon Aug 25, 05:20 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) said his elbow has been sore for a few weeks but has not affected his throwing.

Footballguys view: This news--while positive--is not going to give fantasy owners in deep leagues much confidence. Schaub will begin the year as the starter for the Raiders, but we're certain that at some point rookie Derek Carr will take over.

  Raiders | Matt Schaub has MRI    Mon Aug 25, 09:50 AM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub (elbow) had an MRI reveal no major structural damage in his right elbow.

Footballguys view: Good news? Schaub lost his mojo with the Texans last year, and we don't see him all of sudden getting it back with a poor Oakland offense. Fantasy owners should avoid Raiders skill position players if possible. It's difficult--and unwise--to rely on a team with so many question marks...and one big question mark at quarterback.

  Raiders | Matt Schaub struggles    Sat Aug 23, 03:01 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Matt Schaub struggled against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 22. Head coach Dennis Allen said the team needs to improve its passing game, but that it's not up to one person to make that change. Allen mentioned a dropped touchdown and protection issues among the factors contributing to Schaub's poor play.

Footballguys view: Should anyone be surprised by this? The answer is emphatically "no." Schaub lost his mojo last year with the Texans, and he may struggle to get it back with a talent-starved Raiders offense. He may begin the season as the starter, but we could see rookie Derek Carr take over at some point this year.

Oakland Raiders RB Kory Sheets (Achilles') tweeted that he is out for the 2014 season after suffering an Achilles' injury Friday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the veteran back. Sheets had been in the Canadian Football League but got one more chance to make it in the NFL with the Raiders this year. He was looking good in camp, and still has a dangerous stiff arm when toting the rock. Now, Sheets may never get back to the NFL again.
