Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is active for tonight's game against the Chargers. He should be fine to use as planned in your IDP lineups after playing through a doubtful tag two weeks ago and a questionable tag Sunday. There's some risk the short week leaves him less ready, but he also gets Easton Stick in the Chargers QB's first NFL start. So there's upside as well.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby is questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Chargers. Well bet on him playing through the knee injury once again after playing through a doubtful tag two weeks ago and a questionable designation last week. We’ll confirm Crosby ahead of the game

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is active for today's game against the Vikings, as expected. Crosby played through a doubtful designation last week and has said he's feeling better this week. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is officially questionable for the second straight week. He told NFL Network Friday, however, that he feels "incredible" and will play Sunday against the Vikings. We're not buying his assessment of the knee. But Crosby played through a doubtful tag after no practice in Week 13. This time around, he managed a limited Friday practice. Crosby played his smallest snap share of the season last time out, but that was still 82%. We'd go ahead and play Crosby in most cases. See where he sits in our Week 14 DL rankings.

Raiders LB Robert Spillane (ankle) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is active for today's game against the Chiefs. He becomes the second player this year to be active after being listed as doubtful, following Giants WR Darius Slayton earlier today. There's obviously still risk of re-injury and/or limited playing time. But Crosby's available if you were waiting for him in your IDP lineup.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby remains doubtful for today's game against the Chiefs with a knee injury that kept him out of practice all week. But multiple reports say he plans to try to play. How effective he'll be and how much of his normal snap share he'll get obviously remain to be seen. And, of course, there's still the chance he turns up inactive. If you have another viable option for your IDP lineup, we'd lean away from using Crosby -- especially in a lackluster matchup for his fantasy upside. But we'll update Crosby's status when the inactive come out around 3 p.m. ET.

Update: Fox's Jay Glazer calls Crosby "60-40" to play. We'd still try to use another IDP option but have re-added Crosby (low) in the Week 12 DL rankings.

Raiders Robert Spillane (ankle) and S Marcus Epps (neck) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Both guys spent the entire practice week limited. Spillane didn't miss a snap last week, so we'd bet on him being ready to play. Epps left that game after 16 snaps so carries a bit more risk. He's also a much lower-level IDP option. We'll check both players ahead of Sunday's game.

Raiders Edge Maxx Crosby (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chiefs ... but the team is still hoping he can get ready. Crosby has missed practice all week, but HC Antonio Pierce told the team website Friday that his star pass rusher is "getting treatment around the clock." Pierce added, "If he can be there Sunday, he'll be there." The doubtful tag, of course, means that you shouldn't expect to have Crosby available for your IDP lineup. No other true edge player has been getting even 50% snap share for the Raiders. No one on the team besides Crosby has more than 2.5 sacks. So you shouldn't be looking for any Raiders D-lineman to fill in for Crosby in your IDP lineup. We'll confirm his status ahead of Sunday's game.

Raiders LB Robert Spillane (hand) is active for today's game against the Giants. We assumed he'd play through his questionable tag and kept him at his usual level in the Week 9 rankings. Start him comfortably in your IDP lineups.

Raiders CB Nate Hobbs remained limited throughout the practice week with the same ankle issue that cost him four games. But he carries no injury designation into Sunday's clash with the Giants. It's certainly not surprising that he's on track to play after returning last Monday might against the Lions and suffering no reported setbacks. But staying off the final injury report marks another positive step. Hobbs makes for a strong weekly starter in CB-required IDP leagues and can even factor in as a general DB starter. His return game included 6 tackles and a sack on just 63% playing time. That was his lowest snap share so far this season, so we'd bet on it rising going forward. See where Hobbs lands in our Week 9 DB rankings.

The Raiders have ruled LB Divine Deablo (ankle) and LB Luke Masterson (concussion) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. That removes a starter and the guy who would have filled in for him. LB Robert Spillane is also questionable with a hand injury. He managed limited practices Thursday and Friday, though, after missing Wednesday. We haven't seen an indication on how likely he is to play but would lean toward betting he'll be out there. Amari Burney -- a sixth-round rookie -- should be the next guy up. He played 45% of snaps in Monday night's loss to the Lions, which Deablo missed and Masterson left early. Curtis Bolton checks in behind Burney on the current depth chart. Spillane will be an easy start if he's active. Burney can be a low-end option for deeper leagues but would be risky. Week 8 marked his first NFL action. Check the Week 9 LB rankings for final positions before you set your IDP lineups.

Raiders CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Lions. It'll be his first action since suffering his injury back in Week 3. Hobbs remained limited throughout the practice week, so there's likely some risk both of a reduced initial role and re-injury. We'll watch both areas in projecting him for Week 9 and beyond.

The Raiders have ruled LB Divine Deablo (ankle) out for Monday night's game against the Lions. That should make Luke Masterson a full-time (or near full) player in Deablo's absence. Masterson stepped in for 62% playing time last week in the game Deablo left early. You can now find Masterson in our Week 8 LB rankings.

Raiders LB Divine Deablo left Sunday's loss to the Bears with a left ankle injury. We'll see about the severity heading into a Week 8 clash with the Lions.

Raiders CBs Nate Hobbs (ankle) and Jakorian Bennett (shoulder, knee) have been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Raiders CB Jakorian Bennett (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Patriots.

The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. It'll be the third straight game without Hobbs.

Raiders CB Jakorian Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Packers. That leaves Las Vegas down two of its top three CBs, with Nate Hobbs (ankle) already ruled out. Bennett put in limited practices all week, so we'll see about his Week 6 availability.

The Raiders have ruled CB Nate Hobbs (ankle) out for the second straight game. CB Jakorian Bennett (hamstring, shoulder) is questionable. The Monday night kickoff vs. the Packers makes Bennett not worth waiting on for IDP lineups in most cases.
