The Raiders have placed K Eddy Pineiro (groin) on IR and will roll with K Mike Nugent. The 36-year-old has connected on 83.9% of his career FGs. He might be a spot-start option this season, but you should be able to do better than Nugent coming out of your draft.
Raiders K Eddy Pineiro is sidelined with a groin injury, according to insider Scott Bair. Pineiro was thought to be ahead of Mike Nugent in the race for Oakland's starting job, but this injury could change that. Avoid the situation in fantasy drafts for now.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the Raiders have waived K Giorgio Tavecchio and signed K Mike Nugent to a 1-year deal. Tavecchio had been competing with Eddy Pineiro after stepping in for injured K Sebastian Janikowski as Oakland's kicker in 2017. Pineiro and Nugent will now compete for the 2018 job. That continued uncertainty makes either kicker a shaky option in current best-ball drafting. You're best off looking elsewhere.
