Hunter Renfrow Officially Ruled Out

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow has unsurprisingly been ruled out for this week's matchup versus the Titans.

Tyrell Williams A WR4 Versus Titans

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams is coming off his worst game of the season (1/9/0), and his Week 14 matchup doesn't appear that encouraging either. The Titans have allowed the sixth-most passing yards in the league (260.1 YPG), but have kept opposing WRs out of the end zone in five of their last seven... Read More

Darren Waller Reaches 100 Yards In Garbage Time

Tyrell Williams A TD-Dependant WR3

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams will look to snap his four-game touchdown skid this Sunday in a crucial game versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Derek Carr A Risky QB2 Versus Chiefs

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr is coming off his worst game of the season where he was benched for the fourth quarter after passing for just 127 scoreless yards against the Jets.

2019 Season in Review - Edwin Diaz

After a lights-out 2018 campaign, Edwin Diaz emerged into the elite class of closers heading into the 2019 season. He wrapped up his historic year with the second-most saves in a single season (57) to go along with a sparkling 1.96 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and 44.3% K-rate. The Mariners sold high on their young hurler...

Tyrell Williams Flops Versus Jets

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams was one of many players to struggle for the offense in the team's 34-3 loss to the Jets on Sunday. He hauled in two of his six targets for a paltry 18 yards in what was easily the worst game of the season for the squad. Williams has now... Read More

Josh Jacobs Stymied By Jets Defense

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs failed to do much in the team's 34-3 blowout loss to the Jets in Week 12. He tied a season-low with 10 carries as he ran for 34 yards against a New York team that is excellent at stopping the run. The rookie added one catch for a measly... Read More

Josh Jacobs Limited On Wednesday

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was listed as limited for Wednesday's practice, but is in no danger of missing Sunday's game versus the Jets.

2019 Season in Review - Trevor Bauer

Trevor Bauer disappointed fantasy managers everywhere in 2019 after a dominant 2018 campaign where he finished sixth in AL Cy Young voting. Setting career-bests with a 2.21 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 221 strikeouts in 175.1 IP (30.8% K%), the 28-year-old entered the 2019 draft season as a top-10 pitcher with an ADP of 31. His... Read More
