BEST OF MAXIM
What was becoming evident throughout the first half of the season is now patently obvious. As much as running back Darren McFadden was touted as the player whose success was most important to the team, it's clear the Raiders will rise or fall with quarterback Carson Palmer. Now that McFadden and backup Mike Goodson both have high ankle sprains, with their status for Sunday...
What a heartbreaking loss for the Raider Nation. The Oakland Raiders were able to score 22 points in the fourth quarter, including 15 unanswered, to be one field-goal away from tying the scoreboard on what would have been an incredible comeback. Unfortunately, the 35 points scored by the Buccaneers in the second half ended up being too much to overcome [...]
It was a painful week in many ways for Silver and Black Nation. It was bad enough that Bucs rookie running back Doug Martin made like Walter Payton against the Oakland defense. Add to that the twin high-ankle sprains for Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson, and the week could not have gone any worse. McFadden has not been ruled out [...]
Raiders second-year running back Taiwan Jones took first team reps during Wednesday’s practice, per Paul Gutierrez of CSNBayArea.com.
“He’s been a little up and down,” Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said of Jones, via Gutierrez. “A little injury-prone, or injury-plagued, and so it’s been kind of tough to evaluate because he’s missed some time. But we’ve got confidence...
Last week: 30 (-1)
Oakland/Tampa Bay was a crazy game for statistics. Everyone knows about Doug Martin’s 272 total yards and 4 total touchdowns, which was the 4th highest single game fantasy football total in history. However, we also had Carson Palmer throw for 414 yards and 4 touchdowns in a losing effort for just the 7th time in NFL history. Meanwhile, because of...
Oakland Raiders running backs Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson were expected to sit out practice yesterday, but defensive lineman Richard
Seymour was also sidelined due to a hamstring issue, reports Paul Gutierrez of
"After getting some
treatment Monday and Tuesday, we felt like holding (Seymour) out of practice
today," said coach Dennis Allen. "...
The Oakland Raiders will be without RB’s Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.
Both players missed practice on Friday because of high-ankle sprains, so Taiwan Jones figures to see large workload with Marcel Reece being mixed in throughout the game. McFadden’s injury isn’t believed to be too severe, so there’s at least a chance that he...
1. Both Marcel Reece and Taiwan Jones Should be Owned
As a standout receiver in an offense that will be without Darren McFadden (31 catches) and Mike Goodson (14 catches) the next couple weeks due to high-ankle sprains, it's understandable why Oakland fullback Marcel Reece is generally considered the Oakland running back to target on waivers this week, especially in PPR leagues...
Few people likely had the Oakland Raiders at the top of their Super Bowl contenders list before the start of the season.Those that did probably reluctantly admitted that this is a "rebuilding" year since Oakland is in a hole and looking up from a 3-5 record. As the Raiders face a stiff Baltimore Ravens defense this week, we make three bold predictions about the outcome...
