Date: Team: Pos:

Marshawn Lynch rushed 11 times for 67 yards and caught his only target for 10 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Lynch was the most effective weapon for Oakland's offense early, sparking what could have been a game-changing drive with a 25-yard carry midway through the second quarter. A Seth Roberts fumble ended that march inside the 10, however, and a lopsided scoreline limited Lynch to just two carries in the second half. With a tough matchup against the Broncos up next, Lynch will remain no better than a touchdown-hope RB2.
Nov 19 - 8:08 PM

Jared Cook hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Cook came into the game on one of the best runs of his career, and he looked headed to another good game when he came up with a nice 26-yard grab in the second quarter. That was about all he could muster the rest of the way, however, as the Raiders' offense was stuck in neutral. Unlike the rest of the passing attack, Cook will be in a bounce-back spot next week against the Broncos. He will remain a solid TE1 in that matchup.
Nov 19 - 8:03 PM

Amari Cooper hauled in 3-of-7 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Of Oakland's primary offensive weapons, Cooper was the only one which had an actual bad game, but he ended up with the best fantasy week of the bunch. With Oakland down 30-0 early in the fourth quarter, Cooper caught a pass short of the end zone, managed to stop his momentum before going out of bounds, and was able to get the ball inside the pylon. It was the definition of a garbage-time touchdown, but fantasy owners will take it. With the Broncos up next, Cooper will be no better than a WR3 next week.
Nov 19 - 8:00 PM

Michael Crabtree hauled in 6-of-11 targets for 51 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Like his quarterback, Crabtree did not stand out as having a particularly poor day, but he simply could not get anything going along with the rest of the passing attack. He did have a chance at a big play in a one-on-one situation down the field, but he could not come up with the catch. Crabtree has yet to top 85 yards this season, and he has not found the end zone since Week 7. It is unlikely either of those trends change next week against Denver.
Nov 19 - 7:55 PM

Derek Carr completed 28-of-49 passes for 237 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Carr was not aggressively bad or even actually bad in this game, but Oakland could simply not get anything going in the passing game in what was ultimately a flat performance. His receivers certainly did not help matters, and it is possible the altitude had something to do with the terrible showing. Carr had thrown for at least 300 yards three games in a row before this one, but it is unlikely he gets back on that track next week against the Broncos.
Nov 19 - 7:52 PM

Raiders declared CB David Amerson (foot), RT Marshall Newhouse (hip, quad), LB Shilique Calhoun, QB Connor Cook, DT Darius Latham, DE Jihad Ward, and OT Jylan Ware inactive for Week 11 against the Patriots.

Oakland was always going to have trouble shutting down Tom Brady and company, and Amerson is yet another blow. Brady, Rob Gronkowski, and Brandin Cooks should all be in for big days. Vadal Alexander will start in the place of Newhouse.
Nov 19 - 3:00 PM

David Amerson (foot) is doubtful for Week 11 against the Patriots.

Amerson returned to a limited practice on Thursday but it looks like he'll need at least another week. Dexter McDonald will draw another start at corner opposite Sean Smith. It's a mouthwatering matchup for Tom Brady.
Nov 17 - 3:40 PM

David Amerson (foot) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Amerson had the bye week to rest his injured foot but still needs more time. With Amerson hurt and Gareon Conley (I.R., shin) done for the year, Oakland's secondary is looking thin for Sunday's matchup against the high-powered Patriots. That game will be played in Mexico City.
Nov 15 - 6:56 PM

Raiders placed CB Gareon Conley (shin) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Conley showed up to Raiders camp in the spring with a shin injury and never got over it. He did hold his own in Weeks 2-3 appearances, then suffered a setback. The 24th overall pick in April's draft, Conley should still have a bright future if he can overcome the injury bug. He bookended Marshon Lattimore at Ohio State and at times impressed even more than Lattimore on college tape.
Nov 13 - 5:14 PM

Raiders DE Darius Latham's four-game suspension is over.

The Raiders are on bye this week, but Latham will be eligible to play Week 11 against the Patriots if Oakland decides to activate him. The undrafted sophomore had just started getting snaps before the suspension.
Nov 6 - 9:20 AM

Jared Cook caught 8-of-9 targets for 126 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

Cook caught three passes for 59 yards on the opening drive and had over 100 yards at half. He was a matchup problem for Miami's linebackers all night. Cook led Oakland in targets and continues to be a featured part of the offense. Cook has a matchup with the Patriots after Oakland's Week 10 bye.
Nov 6 - 12:39 AM

Michael Crabtree caught 3-of-4 targets for 40 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

It was a down game for Crabtree, who also had a drop. He has just one touchdown and has been held under 40 yards in two of his last three games. Crabtree will take a 36/441/6 line into a Week 10 bye.
Nov 6 - 12:15 AM

Amari Cooper caught 4-of-9 targets for 58 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

Cooper ran more of his routes out of the slot this week, tying for the team-lead in targets. He couldn't get anything going downfield with Derek Carr, who mostly settled for checkdowns. Cooper has been more involved since his Week 7 breakout, but hasn't had any splash plays. With a Week 10 bye, Oakland could look to feature Cooper in the second half.
Nov 6 - 12:12 AM

DeAndre Washington rushed four times for 16 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

Washington was a non-factor behind Marshawn Lynch. He only had one target in the pass game and played fewer snaps than Jalen Richard. Washington will continue to split work behind Lynch when their Raiders come out of their bye in Week 11.
Nov 6 - 12:06 AM

Jalen Richard had five carries for 14 yards in Week 9 against Miami.

Richard didn't have a carry in the first half. He played just 12 snaps with Marshawn Lynch back from suspension. With Oakland on their bye, Richard is safe to drop.
