  Raiders | Michael Crabtree scores again    Fri Oct 20, 12:38 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree had three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.

Footballguys view: Crabtree caught the game-winning score to save his fantasy night, but took a backseat to Amari Cooper the rest of the night. He seemed like a reliable low WR1 going into this one, but his weekly floor is going to be lower in light of this result.

  Raiders | Jared Cook has big night    Fri Oct 20, 12:27 AM

Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook logged six receptions (on seven targets) for 107 yards Thursday, Oct. 19, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Footballguys view: Cook had a potential game-winning score clank off of his hands, but he was strong in the middle of the field and also caught a highlight reel play to set up the game-winning situation. He has streamer appeal every week with this upside finally flashed in the Oakland offense and a healthy Derek Carr.

Oakland Raiders LB NaVorro Bowman has a chance to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7 even though he signed with the Raiders Monday, Oct. 16, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Footballguys view: Bowman shouldn't take that long to get up to speed in the Raiders defense. The team plays on a short week as they take on the Chiefs on Thursday night in Week 7.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) will start Week 6's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Footballguys view: Carr is back after suffering this injury against the Broncos in Week 4. The initial prognosis was 2-6 weeks of recovery and obviously Carr is on the short side of that. Fantasy owners should look at him as a QB2 in Week 6.

  Raiders | Derek Carr has another limited practice    Thu Oct 12, 07:31 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: Carr's back may still be a factor even if he returns to action this week. He was struggling before the injury, so the back issue won't help. We see him as a middle of the road QB2 and hope that he can bounce back this season.

  Raiders | Derek Carr expected to play    Mon Oct 9, 06:22 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (back) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6, according to head coach Jack Del Rio.

Footballguys view: Carr was going to need 2-6 weeks to recover from the back injury he suffered against the Broncos in Week 4...and it looks like only two weeks were necessary. One has to wonder if the team is rushing him back too soon because the offense lacked spark with E.J. Manuel as the starter against the Ravens in Week 5.

  Raiders | Amari Cooper to be more involved?    Sat Oct 7, 09:33 PM

Oakland Raiders QB EJ Manuel said he is going to make an effort to make WR Amari Cooper more involved in the offense early against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Cooper has been plagued by drops and lackluster play. Manuel actually threw the ball well last week, so Cooper has a chance to bounceback. He's worth a WR3/Flex start in this four-team bye week.

  Raiders | Big workload for Marshawn Lynch?    Sat Oct 7, 09:22 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch should see a 'heavy dose' of carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5, according to Eddie Paskal of Raiders.com.
