Raiders OLB Cory James (knee) is active for today's game against the Bills. We'll see what his playing time looks like in his 1st game with MLB NaVorro Bowman. James missed last Thursday's win over the Chiefs.

Raiders LB Cory James is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs with the knee issue that dogged him in Week 6. James played just 7 snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chargers after leaving the previous game early with the injury. James looks like a poor bet to play in this game and certainly isn't worth trusting in IDP lineups even if he's active.

Raiders OLB Cory James left Sunday's game against the Ravens early with a knee injury. We have yet to see any further update on his outlook for Week 6 and beyond, so we'll keep an eye on his status this week. Edge guys Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack were the only LBs (for fantasy purposes) who played more than 55% of the defensive snaps against Baltimore. Don't plan to count on a Raiders LB beyond Mack in your IDP lineup if James remains out.

Raiders LB Cory James (knee) is active for today's game at Tennessee. He looks like the best bet for tackles in a weak Oakland LB corps and a solid LB3 with upside for IDP owners. We'll see if the knee limits his playing time at all.

Raiders LB Cory James is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He spent all week limited in practice by a knee issue. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Raiders LB Cory James "seems set to play most every down at weakside linebacker," according to CSN Bay Area. James has reportedly been the constant, with a revolving door at MLB. Tyrell Adams, rookie Marquel Lee and free-agent addition Jelani Jenkins have all seen time there. Lee opened the 2nd preseason game in the middle but gave way to Jenkins before the 1st team left the field. The takeaway for IDP owners: Unless you play in a very deep league, don't bother with an Oakland MLB. We'll see what the 3rd preseason game reveals at the position.

Raiders LB Malcolm Smith missed practice Wednesday with a quad injury that knocked him out of Sunday's win over the Ravens. Oakland signed former Washington LB Perry Riley earlier this week, which would seem to indicate pessimism on Smith's status. The team also lost LB Ben Heeney to injury, though, so it needs depth whether Smith's ready to return or not. We'll keep an eye on his participation. Rookie LB Cory James will be the top Raiders LB play in IDP leagues this week either way.
