Five Bold Predictions for the Las Vegas Raiders: Josh Jacobs

Five Bold Predictions for the Las Vegas Raiders 

Joe Heller | May 13th, 2020

The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a season that fell off the rails, after losing a rookie running back to an injury that shelved him for the last month of the season. The Raiders were primed for a wildcard spot prior to Jacobs’ injury, as the Chiefs had the AFC West Division all but locked up when the calendar flipped to December. Here are my five bold predictions for the Las Vegas Raiders. Continue reading

Waiver Wire Targets for Week 11

Mike Fanelli | November 12th, 2019 

The month of November has been a wacky one in the NFL. The Dolphins are 2-0 as they defeated the Jets and Colts this month after going 0-7 in the first two months of the season. Meanwhile, coming off a bye, the Rams lost to the Steelers on Sunday while the Saints got destroyed by the Falcons. This coming week the Packers, Giants, Seahawks, and Titans are on a bye, leaving fantasy owners with several key players unavailable as they push for a playoff spot.

Thursday Night Football Week 10 DFS

Brandon Braasch | November 7th, 2019 

This is a must-win divisional game for both teams. The Los Angeles Chargers started the season 2-5 and have won two in a row to get back to 4-5. The Oakland Raiders are right in the middle of the playoff race as well at 4-4. Both teams are fighting to stay alive in the wild card race and even the division battle with the Kansas City Chiefs. Here are my top players in this game that should be very close and hard-fought.

TNF Fantasy Preview: Los Angeles Chargers vs Oakland Raiders

Mike Fanelli November 7th, 2019 

Even though it feels like it just started, we are more than halfway through the 2019 season. The San Francisco 49ers are the only remaining undefeated team as the New England Patriots loss on Sunday while the Cincinnati Bengals are the only remaining winless team as the Miami Dolphins got their first win of the season against the New York Jets. Last week’s Thursday night game was closer than many expected between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals. Hopefully, tonight’s game is similar. In a division matchup between the Los Angles Chargers and Oakland Raiders, as both teams enter tonight’s game needing a win in the tight AFC Wild Card race.

Detroit Lions Week 9 Recap- Gruden, Carr Raid Lions

Tom Greene | November 4th, 2019

The Lions traveled to Oakland in their last season at the Colosseum. The plan was to use an Air-Raid offense (like Arizona’s) to sink the Raiders’ ship in the Black Hole for one last time. Instead, Jon Gruden utilized Derek Carr to do exactly what Matthew Stafford was supposed to do- raid the secondary and win the game. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 8 Recap: Giant Victory Keeps Lions on the Prowl

Tom Greene | October 28th, 2019 

At 2-3-1, division and/or playoff hopes seem far-fetched. Not many teams, if any, come back from 2-5 (or 2-4-1) to play meaningful football in January. But, .500 teams after week eight still have a chance, and the Lions had a chance to get back into the race with that record.

Week 8 Fantasy Streamers

Mike Fanelli | October 22nd, 2019 

Week seven of the NFL season got off to a scary start when the Kansas City Chiefs lost Patrick Mahomes on Thursday night with a dislocated knee injury in their win against the Denver Broncos. Thankfully, Mahomes is expected to just miss a few weeks and will likely be back after the team’s week 12 bye. In the meanwhile, fantasy owners can’t drop Mahomes and since you spent the early draft capital on him, you likely didn’t draft a second quarterback. The best way to try and fill his shoes is to stream the position. As part of this week’s streamers, I will give you a few options to replace Mahomes with for this week.

The Walsh Way – Week Two DFS Values

Kevin Walsh | September 13th, 2019 

We are on to week two! This week’s value edition will admittedly contain several Raiders due to the pricing coming out prior to Monday Night Football, so when you see an Oakland player in each section, know that it’s due to a combination of the Monday Night effect, as well as the initial week settling-in process.

Business is Boomin’ in Oakland, Raiders acquire Antonio Brown

Givanni Damico | March 11th, 2019

The Antonio Brown saga is finally over. After enduring through months of complaining from Brown, as well as a fake news report from Ian Rapoport, the Steelers have finally rid themselves of the locker room cancer. Watching this whole situation unfold was more dramatic than an episode of Real Housewives and somehow less entertaining.

Week 10 Streaming Options: QB, TE, D/ST, K, and Deep “Boom” Plays

Travis Finkel | November 7th, 2018

Week 10 offers some relief from a Week 9 “bye-pocalyspe.” This past week we were forced to throw out names like Derek Carr and Joe Flacco as streaming options and that didn’t go as well as someone people had needed. Week 9 was a week where good streamers were needed desperately, but in reality there just weren’t many great options. Here’s to a better Week 10.

Oakland Raiders: 2018 Season Preview

Givanni Damico | August 29th, 2018

No one was happy with the 6-10 performance of the Oakland Raiders last season, including upper management who decided Jack Del Rio’s time in the Bay Area was up. Can they bounce back to 2016 and show last year was a fluke?
