Denarius Moore @ Bal
The Ravens have given up some points to opposing WRs, but they play so much better at home and Moore may have trouble this week. The Raiders are the 11th best team vs opposing WRs at 18.6 PPG.
Steve Smith vs Den
Smith finally got into the endzone for the first time last week, but has a had pull with Champ Bailey this week. They are the 9th best team against opposing WRs and Smith is not a sure thing this week.
Danny Amendola @ SF
SF is tough against #1 WRs, as they rank as the 5th best in the NFL. In their last 5 games, the 49ers have held 3 of their opponents WR corps to 9 points or less. Unless you need him in a PPR, I’m staying away.

The Oakland Raiders have activated linebacker Aaron Curry to the 53-man roster this Tuesday, as announced by the team’s official twitter account. Curry was placed on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform list before the start of the season with injuries on his knees. To make room for the former 4th overall pick in the 2009 Draft, the Raiders have waived also linebacker Vic So’oto, [...]
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...
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 [...]
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...
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. "...
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...
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...
The Raiders activated outside linebacker Aaron Curry to the 53-man roster Tuesday, Steve Corkran of Bayareanewsgroup reports.
The Raiders waived linebacker Vic Sooto to make room for Curry on the roster. Curry is eligible to play against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Curry missed some of the offseason workouts, all of training camp and the first eight games, while recovering...

Former Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden might be eyeing a return to coaching, Charlie Campbell of Walterfootball reports. Sources around him have shared that he is looking into different assistant coaches around the league and seeing what their potential availability will be after the 2012 season.
Assistant coaches mentioned are fired Eagles defensive...
