Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 17 vs KC (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Made a man miss on a short swing pass and then punished the next defender who tried to bring him down as he rumbled for an impressive 14-yard gain.
2015 Week 13 vs KC (2 / 16 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Olawale had one red-zone carry and continues to run as the second back. He also serves is serving as the fullback in the goal line formation and is a threat to receive the ball near the end zone.
2015 Week 12 vs TEN (2 / 17 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Olawale got his first carry on the Raiders first trip to the red zone. He bulled his way forward for an impressive 10-yard gain down to the seven-yard line. Olawale also received some red zone work lined up as the fullback in an I-formation. He was targeted from this formation off of play action from the six-yard line, but the Titans were not fooled and the pass was nearly intercepted. Olawale got some carries late with the Raiders trying to run out the clock (before Carr fumbled) and looks better than Murray as a power runner. He should see increased usage in this role going forward.
2015 Week 11 vs DET (4 / 12 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Olawale continues to operate as the backup tailback. He brings many of the same attributes as Marcel Reese to the table, but is a niftier runner than Reese. He runs hard and should continue to see a handful of carries every game.
2015 Week 10 vs MIN (5 / 24 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
Olawale was the clear #2 back behind Murray and ran hard on his few opportunities. While he does not have Murray's burst, he is a more powerful runner and more effective on short-yardage plays. He received some red zone snaps and a red zone carry again and has the potential to find the end zone in future weeks.
2015 Week 9 vs PIT (1 / 19 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After Latavius Murray left with a concussion, Reece and Olawale split time in the backfield. Olawale showed surprising wiggle and sprinted for a 19-yard touchdown run. He lined up as the single back and hit the hole hard; then put a subtle juke on the linebacker in the hole to get loose and go untouched for the score.
2015 Week 5 vs DEN (6 / 13 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
When Murray was benched in the second half, Olawale, Reese and Helu all rotated in the backfield and at least one of the three was out there every play. Olawale is a bigger, slower version of Reese. He runs with power, but he is not a big play threat at all and is a poor option to receive anything more than a few carries per game..
2015 Week 1 vs CIN (1 / 6 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 19 / 0 rec)
Olawale is a FB/RB hybrid and was used similarly to Marcel Reese. He lined up as RB in the shotgun and ran hard. He had a long gain that was called back due to a holding call. Olawale was also involved in the passing game and did a nice job getting open both when lined up at RB and when lined up as a FB on the line of scrimmage.
