Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 16.

Footballguys view: Carr played with a lot of courage last week. We'll see if that continues...and if he continues targeting Andre Holmes early and often.

  Raiders | Limited practice for Derek Carr    Wed Oct 15, 11:37 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.

Footballguys view: Even if healthy, Carr isn't a great option for fantasy owners this week. We'd avoid him regardless of his status, but long term have mostly liked what we've seen from the rookie.

  Raiders | More carries for Darren McFadden?    Tue Oct 14, 10:04 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden carried the ball on 14 of the team's 20 rush attempts in Week 6, and interim coach Tony Sparano said he wants to emphasize the run going forward.

Footballguys view: McFadden is the best running back they have on the roster. Fantasy owners should trust him as a RB3/flex play going forward. As we see a more robust offense from Oakland, a big part of that could be the play of McFadden.

  Raiders | Bigger role coming for MJD?    Sat Oct 11, 09:10 PM

Oakland Radiers RB Maurice Jones-Drew has just 11 carries for 12 yards in two games this season, but interim head coach Tony Sparano said he wants him to share the load with RB Darren McFadden. 'I'd like Maurice to take a little bit greater role, maybe get some snaps off of Darren,' Sparano said. 'If we could, keep them both fresh that way, but we also have got to be running the football and doing some things that way too.'

Footballguys view: McFadden is still the back that has been playing better and will get first run, so if you are going to own a Raiders back, it should be him.

  Raiders | Raiders committed to Derek Carr    Fri Oct 10, 12:10 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr has received a vote of confidence from new head coach Tony Sparano. "I visited with him and we got a chance to talk about that," Sparano said. "I said to him, 'This is your football team; you're the quarterback. We don't have time for you to be a rookie right now, this team needs you to step up and be that leader. Don't sit around and wait to do that.'' Carr has showed good poise through four weeks of ups and downs in his rookie season.

Footballguys view: Carr deserves that backing, as he has made the most of a very poor situation. He still doesn't have any redraft fantasy value, but deep dynasty leagues and the Raiders have to be pleased with what they have sen so far from Carr.

  Raiders | Derek Carr sees limited reps    Thu Oct 9, 06:39 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: We should see Carr back out there for the Raiders. He may start for Oakland, but he should be nowhere near your fantasy lineup.

  Raiders | Derek Carr expects to play    Thu Oct 9, 01:07 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) said he expects to play in Week 6 against the San Diego Chargers after practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Oct. 8. 'It would take a lot for me not to play,' Carr said after practice. 'It felt really good out there.' Head coach Tony Sparano said Carr is day-to-day, and he won't commit to Carr playing this weekend.

Footballguys view: When the other option is Interceptasaurus Matt Schaub, you'll duct tape up the rookie and go with him if at all possible. While the Raiders have no choice, you do. Carr could become a solid quarterback down the road but he's not there yet and the San Diego Chargers defense is not someone you want to test this week in fantasy.

  Raiders | Kenbrell Thompkins claimed    Mon Oct 6, 04:11 PM

The Oakland Raiders claimed WR Kenbrell Thompkins off waivers from the New England Patriots Monday, Oct. 6, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are still the landing spot for washed up players to go. Thompkins may not be washed up, but he fell out of favor with the Patriots this year after making the team as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He's got great athleticism and crazy body control, but Thompkins lacks consistency to his game.

The Oakland Raiders placed WR Rod Streater (foot) on the Reserve/Injured list Thursday, Oct. 2, with a designation to return.

Footballguys view: Redraft owners should have already dropped Streater. He's not eligible to return until Week 13, and Streater could have limited value upon his return.

  Raiders | Derek Carr expects to play after bye    Wed Oct 1, 06:42 PM

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) said he expects to play against the San Diego Chargers in Week 6 following the team's bye week.

Footballguys view: For Carr to not miss any games would be remarkable considering that he suffered and knee and an ankle injury. The unheralded rookie starting QB is winning over a lot of doubters.

  Raiders | Tony Sparano named interim coach    Tue Sep 30, 01:57 PM

The Oakland Raiders named Tony Sparano interim head coach Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Footballguys view: Sparano gets the interim job over OC Greg Olson. His previous head coaching experience (Miami Dolphins 2008-2011) had to make the difference. Sparano is a solid, yet unspectacular option for the Raiders. If he does well over the next 12 weeks, there's a chance he would get consideration for the job in 2015.

  Raiders | May look at Jon Gruden     Tue Sep 30, 12:49 PM

The Oakland Raiders may look at free-agent head coach Jon Gruden for their head coaching vacancy, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The team is looking for a "superstar" coach to fill their vacancy.

Footballguys view: That seems like a dream scenario for Raiders fans right now. They have to do something, because what they've been going through since "Chucky" left is a living nightmare.

  Raiders | Dennis Allen fired    Mon Sep 29, 11:07 PM

The Oakland Raiders called head coach Dennis Allen Monday, Sept. 29, to inform him he has been relieved of his head coaching duties.

Footballguys view: Are we sure about this? There was a report about Allen getting fired from the AP after the Raiders loss in London to the Dolphins on Sunday. We're not shocked by this news...even the premature news. Things aren't working with Allen and the Raiders. The team has to move in a different direction. We'll see if general manager Reggie McKenzie is the next one out the door.

  Raiders | Derek Carr banged up in loss    Sun Sep 28, 11:39 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Derek Carr (ankle, knee) told reporters after the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins in London Sunday, Sept. 28, that he suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament and high ankle sprain.

Footballguys view: That sounds like a multi-week cocktail of injuries, although Carr has showed a lot of toughness in the first four games. In a season with few bright spots, Carr has been one.

  Raiders | Andre Holmes shines in loss    Sun Sep 28, 11:37 PM

Oakland Raiders WR Andre Holmes had five receptions for 74 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Miami Dolphins.

Footballguys view: Holmes' touchdown game in garbage time, but he did show some good chemistry with backup QB Matt McGloin last year, so if Derek Carr is going to miss time, Holmes could be worth a stash coming out of the bye. With Denarius Moore falling out of favor and Rod Streater out for a while, Holmes could have no matter who the quarterback is because of his size and speed.

  Raiders | Darren McFadden goes distance    Sun Sep 28, 11:37 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden carried 11 times for 40 yards in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, while RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) carried twice for just one yard. McFadden also had four receptions for 32 yards, while Jones-Drew had two catches for only two yards.

Footballguys view: McFadden has "what the heck flex" value as the best back in this backfield, but Jones-Drew is clearly on the decline and can be dropped - at least for as long as McFadden is healthy.

  Raiders | Oakland RBs likely 50-50 split    Sat Sep 27, 07:55 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden and RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) are likely to receive a 50-50 split of the carries in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer Vic Tafur.

Footballguys view: Making neither a good play. If you need to cut someone to field a full lineup this week, your Raiders running back is a good choice, even though McFadden was playing better than his numbers so far this year.

  Raiders | Darren McFadden to start in London    Fri Sep 26, 09:54 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden is expected to make a third straight start in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins in London, head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Maurice Jones-Drew should be back this week as he's listed as probable for the game against the Dolphins in London. With MJD back, Run DMC becomes a low end RB2/RB3/flex play - both backs are more desperation plays in Week 4.
