  Raiders | Derek Carr's release would save big money    Mon Jan 13, 09:13 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is scheduled to count $21.5 million against the 2020 salary cap, and releasing him would save the Raiders $16.5 million after a $5 million charge for dead money. Previous reports have placed the odds of Carr's return at 70 percent.

Footballguys view: Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has never seemed enamored with Carr. We could see the team release him in order to make a run at a veteran like Tom Brady or Cam Newton (if released for Brady and if traded with Newton). Gruden loves his veteran quarterbacks but the team might want to go after a rookie instead. Who knows what will happen but things look dire for Carr's time with the Raiders.

  Raiders | Hunter Renfrow delivers on third down    Fri Jan 3, 12:46 AM

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow had 23 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns on third downs during his rookie season, and 70 percent of those catches resulted in first downs.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see what Renfrow can do in 2020 and beyond. Head coach John Gruden called Renfrow a 'special' player after he closed the year with 13 catches and 209 yards over the final two weeks. We'll see if Renfrow is catching passes from Derek Carr in 2020 or some other quarterback as the Raiders move to Las Vegas for next season.

  Raiders | William Stanback signs futures deal    Wed Jan 1, 09:56 PM

Former Montreal Alouettes RB William Stanback signed a futures deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, Jan. 1.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Virginia Union in 2017, Stanback was with the Green Bay Packers for a few months. After that, Stanback had to make his way up in Canada and he became an All Star player for the Alouettes. Stanback rushed for 1,048 yards and five touchdowns while adding 33 receptions for another 329 yards in the CFL's 2019 season. We'll monitor him but only in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Raiders | Darren Waller undergoes surgery    Mon Dec 30, 05:52 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Waller had a breakout year in 2019, his first season as a full-time starter in the pros. He finished second in the NFL (for tight ends) with 1,146 yards receiving. Fantasy GMs will consider him a top-5 option at the position in 2020 drafts.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs ruled out    Sat Dec 28, 04:03 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was downgraded to out Saturday, Dec. 28, for the game Sunday, Dec. 29, against the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Without Jacobs, the Raiders turn to DeAndre Washington as their lead back. The Raiders playoff hopes are alive...barely...and they need to win if they want any chance to make the postseason. The Broncos rush defense has been a bit up-and-down during the season, but they should be able to contain Washington.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 17, according to information obtained from a source Friday, Dec. 27.

  Raiders | Vote of confidence for Derek Carr    Thu Dec 26, 09:17 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's performance this season was praised by head coach Jon Gruden. 'He's done a lot of good things,' Gruden said 'I know there's a lot of swirling reports out there, but Derek's done a great job. He's done a heck of a job for us.'

Footballguys view: Carr can be released with only five million dollars in dead cap money, but the Raiders probably won't go into their first year in Vegas with uncertainty at quarterback. They could use a draft pick to groom a potential successor and this quarterback market will be intriguing, but Carr is likely to be the Raiders Week 1 starter.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams misses practice Thursday    Thu Dec 26, 05:56 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26. He wasn't on the injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 25.

Footballguys view: Williams had a plantar fasciitis problem earlier this year and it's possible that it popped up again. Check the practice reports tomorrow before playing him in Week 17. Hunter Renfrow is the best Raiders wide receiver play this week even if Williams foot is fine for Sunday.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs doesn't practice Thursday    Thu Dec 26, 05:54 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder, illness) didn't practice Thursday, Dec. 26.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs' surgery for infection    Thu Dec 26, 01:23 PM

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder, infection) clarified Thursday, Dec. 26, that he had surgery on Christmas to deal with a leg infection.

Footballguys view: The Raiders have a must-win game against the Broncos on Sunday. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the surgery should not in itself prevent Jacobs from possibly playing in Week 17, but the running back still remains a question mark due to his lingering shoulder injury.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs has surgery    Thu Dec 26, 02:51 AM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder/illness) underwent a surgical procedure of some kind on Wednesday, Dec. 25, posting a video about it to his Instagram account, according to The Athletic's Vic Tafur.

Footballguys view: Jacobs is dealing with a shoulder injury, but the Instagram post shows some wrap around his lower left leg. It seems like a minor surgery, but this does not bode well for the rookie's availability in a must-win against the Broncos on Sunday. If (when?) Jacobs is declared out, then the Raiders will once again turn to DeAndre Washington.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder/illness) was listed as a non-participant on the team's estimated injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 25.

Footballguys view: Jacobs needs to practice fully on Friday so he can play against the Broncos on Sunday. There is a small chance the Raiders can make it into the postseason, but they still need to win.

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs gets some work in Tuesday    Tue Dec 24, 04:14 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) participated in the team's walk-through Tuesday, Dec. 24.

Footballguys view: It's just a walk-through, but it's a good sign for Jacobs in Week 17 as the team tries to make it to the postseason. They must beat the Broncos and then get wins by the Ravens, Texans and Colts. Then, the Raiders also need a victory by one of the following teams: Bears, Lions, Chiefs or Patriots. FPI gives it all a 13.2% chance of happening.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has a chance to play in the Week 17 game.

Footballguys view: See what Jacobs can do in practice this week. DeAndre Washington will be the lead back if Jacobs is down again. The Raiders playoff hopes are still alive but they have to beat the Broncos on Sunday (and about four other things need to happen) if they want to get in.
