Raiders | DeAndre Washington showed explosiveness

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 19:18:51 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington averaged 5.4 yards per carry in 2016 and was tied for sixth in the NFL with seven runs of 20-plus yards on 87 carries.

Fantasy Tip: Washington showed intriguing potential in limited action. If Latavius Murray signs elsewhere this offseason, Washington's fantasy value should skyrocket.

Raiders | Latavius Murray expected to leave Oakland

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 11:43:43 -0800

Impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is unlikely to return to the Oakland Raiders when he officially hits the open market next month.

Fantasy Tip: An earlier report suggested "the door will remain open" for Murray to return, but the fact the Raiders are willing to let the market set his price means the odds of that are slim. Murray is not a difference-making talent, but he's a capable power back with 74 catches over the last two seasons despite losing a ton of reps to DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard in 2016. Teams like the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers could be interested if his financial demands aren't too high.

Raiders | Latavius Murray could still return to OAK

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 08:48:39 -0800

Although the Oakland Raiders are expected to let RB Latavius Murray reach free agency, the door will remain open for a possible return to the organization after he tests the market, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The 27-year-old Murray had 788 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in 14 regular-season games last year and should be viewed as a RB2 in most fantasy formats. If he does not return to Oakland, expect the Raiders to use a committee of DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and Taiwan Jones in the backfield in 2017.

Raiders | Derek Carr close to full health

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 11:19:01 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (leg) said he is close to fully recovered from the fractured fibula he suffered during the regular season, according to OT Donald Penn.

Fantasy Tip: Carr could be limited during some of the offseason workouts but should be a full participant when training camp starts. He was tied for seventh in the NFL with his 28 touchdowns and finished with 3,937 yards and only six interceptions. He will have several weapons to work with in the passing game and can be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Competition for Latavius Murray?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 18:07:25 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray will have interest from multiple teams, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan, and Caplan believes the market for Murray could make it difficult for Oakland to re-sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has been the workhorse for Oakland the last two years, and if he returns, he should be a high-floor, volume-based RB2.

Raiders | Michael Crabtree more productive on the road

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 13:08:48 -0800

Oakland Raiders WR Michael Crabtree recorded 609 yards and five touchdowns on the road this past season. He recorded 394 yards and three touchdowns at home.

Fantasy Tip: Crabtree was able to surpass the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in four years in 2016 and posted a career-high 89 receptions. He will continue to be part of one of the better offenses in the NFL and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Raiders | Subtle changes coming for Oakland offense

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 10:55:47 -0800

Oakland Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing said he will not make changes just for the sake of making them after replacing Bill Musgrave. "Oh, it will be very subtle," Downing said in a conference call with reporters Wednesday, Feb. 15. "We're going to keep the same system terminology. There's no reason to change any of that stuff. All we're doing right now is finding the ways that we can all individually do our jobs better, prepare our positions better, and how we can just quarter-turn a couple things to make the offense as efficient as possible."

Fantasy Tip: This is a wise approach to his new job, as fixing what isn't broken generally doesn't translate well in fantasy. The offensive stars should remain strong contributors, barring injuries, and finding ways to subtly tweak the offense can open doors for fringe players to see larger roles.

Raiders | Derek Carr will have say in game planning

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 10:46:21 -0800

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr will have a voice in the game planning, according to new offensive coordinator Todd Downing, who was promoted from quarterbacks coach after former offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's contract expired.

"There's been a lot made about his command at the line of scrimmage. There's certainly going to be opportunities for Derek to do that," Downing said. "... Where I see him needing a little bit more command is just being able to share his thoughts of game plans. Being a student of the game, as he already is, but vocalize what he likes and doesn't like. I think my relationship with him is something that's going to give him the opportunity to voice his opinions. I look forward to him really taking charge of expressing his thoughts on the offense."

Fantasy Tip: Carr was in the conversation of NFL MVP before breaking his leg, and with few changes expected in the system, there is little reason to doubt he can have another special season. Carr is a rock-solid No. 1 fantasy quarterback.

Raiders | Latavius Murray may not return

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 13:35:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Latavius Murray is not expected to be re-signed, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders have a deep backfield as is and they can afford to let Murray go even with his recent success. DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and Taiwan Jones will make up the Raiders' backfield for now. Washington has the most promise, but this should end up as a committee.
