  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew not seen at practice    Wed Sep 17, 06:01 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: We might now see Jones-Drew this week. Fantasy owners should look at Darren McFadden as a RB3/flex play.

  Raiders | Bojay Filimoeatu waived    Mon Sep 15, 05:41 PM

The Oakland Raiders placed LB Bojay Filimoeatu on no-recall waivers Monday, Sept. 15.


  Raiders | Vincent Brown signed    Mon Sep 15, 05:29 PM

The Oakland Raiders signed free-agent WR Vincent Brown (Chargers) to a one-year contract Monday, Sept. 15. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Rod Streater suffered a hip flexor in Week 2, so this signing could mean that the team expects him to miss some time. Brown failed to stay healthy during his time with the Chargers, and thus his pro career has been a bust. He seems to have lost what little speed he used to have. Brown can still run a crisp route, and he has strong hands. We're not expecting him to be much of a fantasy factor with his new team.

The Oakland Raiders have declared OG Tony Bergstrom, S Jonathan Dowling, DE Shelby Harris, RB Maurice Jones-Drew, OT Matt McCants, QB Matt McGloin, LB Nick Roach inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Darren McFadden gets the start, but Latavius Murray should also get a lot of work and could burst on the scene today with a good game.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew questionable?    Fri Sep 12, 04:29 PM

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

Footballguys view: It sounds like there's a chance Jones-Drew will play, but he's not worth a start either way. Counting on Darren McFadden or Latavius Murray as even a flex play is endangered by the possibility of Jones-Drew playing.

  Raiders | Raiders to split carries without MJD    Fri Sep 12, 04:15 PM

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.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew likely out    Fri Sep 12, 08:32 AM

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.

Footballguys view: Darren McFadden will get the start vs Houston, but we know how this story ends...

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew sits out    Thu Sep 11, 06:10 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 11, after undergoing surgery on his right hand.

Footballguys view: We have concerns about Jones-Drew even if he was 100 percent healthy. It would be a surprise to see Jones-Drew play in Week 2. That means Darren McFadden is the starter with second-year back Latavius Murray as his primary backup.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew may be back soon    Thu Sep 11, 02:11 PM

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.

Footballguys view: So you can slow your roll on Darren McFadden or Marcel Reece. You have to have an alternative for him because we still don't know what the ETA is on his return. If he sits this week, which is the expectation, McFadden will get the bulk of the work against the Houston Texans, with Reece (or Latavius Murray) getting the scraps. McFadden would be no better than a RB3 or flex with some upside.

  Raiders | Nick Roach not cleared    Thu Sep 11, 01:06 AM

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.'

  Raiders | Marcel Reece could see touches    Thu Sep 11, 01:06 AM

Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece could see an increase in touches in Week 2 against the Houston Texans if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is forced out of action.

Footballguys view: While Reece can see some work, we'd expect Darren McFadden to get the bulk of it if Maurice Jones-Drew is out. Reece might be worth a spot on deeper rosters in case McFadden implodes or gets hurt, but he isn't someone to start this week.

  Raiders | Latavius Murray might see bigger role    Thu Sep 11, 01:05 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Latavius Murray might see increased reps in Week 2 against the Houston Texans if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is unable to go.

  Raiders | Darren McFadden might start Week 2    Thu Sep 11, 01:04 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden will get the start in Week 2 against the Houston Texans if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is unable to play.

Footballguys view: With Maurice Jones-Drew banged up, we'd expect nothing different. McFadden may get an increase in carries anyway if MJD plays, as the Raiders could decide to try and protect Jones-Drew from aggravating the injury. Marcel Reece might see some snaps, but he's not worth starting--McFadden would be a decent RB3 or flex start with some upside if MJD is out.

  Raiders | Maurice Jones-Drew sits    Wed Sep 10, 07:10 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.

Footballguys view: The veteran back is not the same player he used to be. He's getting a bit of time off here, but even if he plays in Week 2 we're not that excited about his fantasy prospects. Jones-Drew is a flex play against the Texans.

Footballguys view: Matt Schaub will back up Derek Carr, so the Raiders at least have a little faith in his ability, but just a little.

  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.
