Jamize Olawale rushed two times for -3 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 90 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 11 win over the Texans.
Olawale took a pair of goal-line carries from the one-yard line early in the game but was stuffed on both. His big play was a 75-yard touchdown catch-and-run on a busted coverage by the Texans. On the play, Amari Cooper was lined up in the backfield with Olawale outside. The defense bit on the Cooper swing pass, and Olawale snuck deep and into the end zone for the long score. He obviously isn't on the fantasy radar heading into Week 12 against the Panthers. Nov 22 - 12:26 AM

Jamize Olawale (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's not clear when Olawale suffered the injury. Latavius Murray will be locked into goal-line work if Olawale misses time.

Jamize Olawale rushed six times for 22 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 5 win over the Chargers.

He also caught his lone target for two yards. With Latavius Murray (toe) out, Olawale took over as the Raiders' goal-line back, capitalizing on his lone carry from the one-yard line for a bunny touchdown. Expect him to see 6-8 carries and most of the goal-line work if Murray continues to miss time.

Raiders signed FB Jamize Olawale to a three-year, $6 million extension through 2018.

A fourth-year UDFA, Olawale has been a steady game day presence since 2013. He has 32 touches this season, easily a new career high. He's Pro Football Focus' No. 7 fullback through 13 weeks, but the competition isn't very fierce. The Raiders love locking up role-playing types.

Raiders signed RB Jamize Olawale off the Cowboys' practice squad.

It's an interesting move with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson due back this week and Jeremy Stewart and Marcel Reece playing well. Olawale is a converted wide receiver and fullback, so the Raiders may envision him as a lead blocker. He showed well in preseason action.

Cowboys waived RB Jamize Olawale, CB Teddy Williams, S Eddie Whitley and DL Robert Callaway.

A converted wideout and fullback from the University of North Texas, Olawale impressed in preseason action only to get caught in the numbers crunch. Williams is the "Splendid Sprinter" who was a track star in college.

According to the Cowboys website, there is a "growing excitement" over undrafted rookie RB Jamize Olawale.

A converted wideout from the University of North Texas, Olawale has moved from lead blocker to tailback with the Cowboys over the past couple of months. With fullback size (6'0/230) and halfback moves and speed (4.53 forty), Olawale has stood out in the first two preseason games. He could push Phillip Tanner (hand surgery) for the final running back spot.
