Veldheer said contract talks haven't gone sour, just a little stale. General manager Reggie McKenzie prefers not to use the franchise tag.

Raiders | Patchwork OL for Week 1

Fri, 06 Sep 2013 20:25:01 -0700

Oakland Raiders OT Khalif Barnes will move from right tackle to left tackle in Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts, and OT Tony Pashos, who just signed Monday, Sept. 2, will get the start at right tackle with OTs Jared Veldheer (triceps) and Menelik Watson (knee) out.

Fantasy Tip: While we don't use OL in fantasy football, a patchwork and struggling offensive line could hurt the values of QB Terrelle Pryor, as well as RB Darren McFadden and the receiving corps, too. Pryor might not have as much time to throw, and could be running for his life.
