The Raiders released their initial depth chart Monday, which included listing Khalil Mack at DE instead of LB. It's not a surprising move, as new HC Jack Del Rio's staff switches from a 3-4 base front to 4-3. It could prove quite important to IDP leagues, though, if any commish sites change Mack's designation to DL. He'd carry much more value at that lower-scoring position in general. The depth chart also lists MLB Curtis Lofton, SLB Ray-Ray Armstrong and WLB Malcolm Smith as the LB starters. That makes Sio Moore a 2nd-teamer. Del Rio downplayed the significance of the 1st depth chart, but we'll be curious to see how the LB picture develops. The new staff signed Lofton and Smith, while Armstrong joined the team via waivers in October.

The Raiders signed LB Curtis Lofton on Tuesday to a 3-year, $18 million deal that included $10 million in guarantees, according to USA Today. The Saints had cut Lofton 2 days earlier to save cap space. Lofton has long been a strong run defender and will clearly man an inside spot in Oakland's D whether the Raiders settle into a 4-3 or 3-4 base. Lofton has generally produced low-LB2 to LB3 numbers for IDP fantasy football leagues and figures to remain in the same range. We'll see how the rest of the Raiders' LBs settle out. Khalil Mack headlines a group that added former Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith in free agency and retains Sio Moore. It's a talented group that might leave Moore without a starting job (judging by the new regime's early moves).

The Saints on Monday released veteran LB Curtis Lofton to clear a little more than $4 million in cap room. The 28-year-old had performed fine in New Orleans but isn't a special player in any particular area. He'll likely find a new suitor fairly quickly and continue to deliver low-LB2 to high-LB3 fantasy football production for your IDP league.
