Raiders CB David Amerson has been ruled out for the rest of today's game against the Broncos with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning.

Raiders CB David Amerson (knee) and LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Bills and ready to use in your IDP lineups if they make sense for you.

Raiders CB David Amerson (knee) and LB Malcolm Smith (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Both players put in limited practices all week and seem on track to play. Amerson told reporters that he's ready to play after missing last week's game. We'll check on the status for each come Sunday.

Raiders CB David Amerson cleared the league concussion protocol Thursday and is expected to play today against the Titans. Barring some pregame setback, he's set to go in your IDP lineup.

Raiders CB David Amerson suffered a concussion late in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, according to CSN Bay Area. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning to the field. We'll keep an eye on his status this week to see if Oakland and IDP owners will have Amerson for the Week 3 visit to Tennessee.

The Raiders signed CB David Amerson to a 4-year, $38 million extension Friday. The contract doesn't really impact his IDP outlook, except to display Oakland's belief in Amerson as a starter going forward. He delivered DB1 fantasy numbers as a Raiders starter last season after Oakland picked him up off waivers from Washington. Amerson looks like a strong CB option in 2016 fantasy football drafts. Check our DB rankings to see exactly where we value Amerson.

The Raiders not only took CB D.J. Hayden out of the starting lineup for Sunday's win at Tennessee. They demoted him to outside the team's top 3 corners. David Amerson stepped back into the starting lineup, across from T.J. Carrie, where he had played while Carrie filled in for Nate Allen at safety. Neiko Thorpe worked as the nickel CB vs. the Titans, relegating Hayden to just 5 snaps. Go ahead and dump him in your IDP league. Amerson, meanwhile, defensed 6 passes in his return to the lineup after impressing both as a starter and in the nickel role (after Allen returned). He carries significant IDP upside the rest of the way -- especially in CB-required formats.

The Raiders have activated S Nate Allen from short-term IR. He has been out since suffering a Week 1 knee injury but is expected to reclaim his starting spot next to Charles Woodson, according to Pro Football Talk. That would push T.J. Carrie back to CB, which has featured David Amerson and D.J. Hayden as starters for most of Allen's absence. We'll see how the playing time works out among this crew going forward. All make for fairly risky IDP options this week against Minnesota.

The Raiders started CB David Amerson across from D.J. Hayden in Sunday's loss to the Bears, and the former Washington corner played 75 of the 77 defensive snaps. Oakland moved T.J. Carrie from that CB spot to safety, next to Charles Woodson. Carrie seemed to start out covering well and corner and brings kick-return skills should he get his hands on any turnovers. Carrie will be interesting to watch for IDP purposes. Washington once touted Amerson as an exciting prospect but cut him earlier this season -- from a bad secondary. We'll see if a Raiders D with a lot of new pieces -- and upgraded talent overall -- can turn into a fantasy option.
