Oakland Raiders Fantasy Football News 2019

The Raiders have waived DE Bruce Irvin, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic. The nearly $4 million left on Irvin's contract might keep him from getting claimed, though interested teams with cap space could foot that bill now that they wouldn't have to surrender any draft capital in trade. Either way, expect the 31-year-old pass-rusher to get another shot somewhere this season. Whether he'll have a shot at IDP relevance will depend on the landing spot.

Raiders CB Daryl Worley is active for tonight's game against the 49ers. He entered the day questionable with a shoulder issue that limited his practice time this week but is ready to go for Week 9 IDP lineups. The Niners starting Nick Mullens can only add turnover upside to Worley.

Raiders CB Daryl Worley is questionable for Thursday night's game against the 49ers with a shoulder injury. That's a new ailment after an ankle tweak rendered him questionable for Week 8. Worley played through that for normal usage. Oakland listed him as a limited participant all this week. We'll check his status when the inactives arrive tonight.

Raiders CB Daryl Worley (ankle) is active for today's game against the Colts. He suffered the injury in Friday's practice, but it reported to be minor. Worley seems good to go for Week 8 IDP lineups -- in an upside spot.

Raiders CB Daryl Worley suffered an ankle injury in Friday’s practice and is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. According to NBC Sports’ Scott Bair, though, HC Jon Gruden doesn’t believe the injury to be serious. We’ll check on Worley’s status Sunday afternoon

The Raiders have released LB Derrick Johnson. The veteran's playing time had dwindled to just about a quarter of the defensive snaps over the past 3 games, so his departure shouldn't mean much for the Oakland defense. It could, however, mean a further playing-time boost for Marquel Lee, the 2nd-year LB who had supplanted Johnson as the middle starter. Though their snap counts didn't correlate directly over the past 4 games, they came pretty close. Lee will be interesting to watch for IDP purposes. He's only an add in deep/dynasty formats right now.

The Raiders on Friday placed DE Khalil Mack on the reserve/did not report list. Mack continues to hold out in search of a new contract after skipping the team's mandatory minicamp. He's on the option year of his rookie contract and currently headed toward unrestricted free agency in the spring. We'll see how this situation plays out.

The Raiders traded up 2 spots in Round 3 to draft LSU EDGE player Arden Key. The versatile pass rusher racked up 11 sacks as a 2016 sophomore but then took a leave of absence from school and dealt with a shoulder injury. Key also weight just 238 pounds in the pre-draft season. He'll need work before seeing regular playing time in the NFL and will make for a high-risk rookie pick in dynasty fantasy football drafts.

Raiders OLB Bruce Irvin (concussion) and DL Denico Autry (hand) are active for tonight's game against the Eagles. Neither is much of an IDP option. As expected, Oakland will miss CB David Amerson (foot) once again. He entered the day doubtful.

Raiders OLB Bruce Irvin (concussion) is questionable for Monday night's game against the Eagles. He returned to practice Friday but has yet to complete the league protocol. DL Denico Autry (hand) is also questionable. The Raiders have ruled DE Mario Edwards (ankle) out for the game and will likely continue to miss CB David Amerson (foot), who is doubtful.

The Raiders have ruled DE Mario Edwards (ankle) out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys. CB David Amerson (foot) is also doubtful for the game. He has missed the past 6 contests with the injury.

Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) is inactive for today's game against the Chiefs. It'll be the 6th straight missed game for Amerson, who reached the weekend questionable. DL Denico Autry (hand) is active after also being questionable. OLB Cory James (knee) is out after arriving as doubtful.

The Raiders will have S Karl Joseph (groin) for tonight's game against the Dolphins. He's active after missing last week's game at Buffalo. CB David Amerson, however, will miss a 2nd straight game with a foot injury.

The Raiders have ruled CB David Amerson (foot) out for Sunday night's game against the Dolphins. S Karl Joseph (groin) is questionable after missing last week's game at Buffalo. Joseph put in limited workouts all week. We'll see about his availability Sunday.

Raiders LB Cory James (knee) and CB David Amerson (shoulder) are active for today's game against the Chargers. Each is fine to use if he was in your Week 6 IDP plans.

Raiders LB Cory James (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. James put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. We'll see about his status Sunday. CB David Amerson (shoulder) is questionable as well after limited workouts each day.

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.
