Keelan Doss Inactive Monday Night

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Keelan Doss is unsurprisingly inactive for Monday night's game versus the Broncos.

The Oakland Raiders have brought back wide receiver Keelan Doss after upping their contract offer in the wake of the Antonio Brown release. Doss signed on with the Jaguars for a league-minimum $495,000 salary earlier this week, but the Raiders showed desperation by tacking on an additional $300,000 signing bonus to the deal. The hometown... Read More

J.J. Nelson Steps Into WR2 Role

Oakland Raiders wide receiver J.J. Nelson will now step into a starting role with the recent loss of Antonio Brown.

Hunter Renfrow Destined For Higher Target Share

With Antonio Brown's high volume of targets now up for grabs, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow should see an uptick in opportunities in lieu of this recent vacancy.

Darren Waller Looks To Profit With One Less Mouth To Feed

In the wake of the Antonio Brown release, the Oakland Raiders will look to feed the ball more often to their new starting tight end, Darren Waller.

Tyrell Williams Now Raiders De Facto WR1

With the loss of Antonio Brown to the Oakland Raiders offense, wide receiver Tyrell Williams will now step into the vacant WR1 role.

Tyrell Williams Faces Tough Week 1 Matchup

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams should find plenty of success in his first year with the Silver and Black, but the results may not come in Week 1.

Catcher Waiver Wire Pickups For Week 23

As we enter the final month of the regular season we start to see more prospects getting the big league phone call as rosters expand.

Time For Darren Waller To Prove It In Week 1

With plenty of preseason hype surrounding Oakland Raiders tight end Darren Waller, it's time for him to show his skills when the team opens up the regular season on Monday Night Football.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown will be under the spotlight when he dons the Silver and Black for the first time on Monday Night Football's primetime stage.

Doug Martin Released By Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have parted ways with veteran running back Doug Martin after reaching an injury settlement.
