Raiders S Karl Joseph (groin) is doubtful for today's game against the Bills. HC Jack Del Rio intimated Friday that rookie Shalom Luani is likely to start in Joseph's place. IDP owners should look elsewhere for a Week 8 fill-in.

The Raiders have ruled S Karl Joseph (toe) out for Thursday night's game against the Chiefs. That will likely leave Nate Allen starting in his place. Allen's not much of an IDP option.

Raiders S Karl Joseph left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Bills with a left big toe injury. S Nate Allen filled in the rest of the way. Joseph didn't open the game on the field, however -- with Reggie Nelson the lone true safety, alongside CBs David Amerson, Sean Smith and T.J. Carrie. That followed a 76.9% snap share for Joseph in Week 12, his smallest since entering the lineup. Combine that with the toe injury, and it's tough to trust Joseph over the next 3 weeks. You can stash him on your bench in a deeper IDP league, but feel free to move on to another DB in average-sized redraft leagues.

The Raiders' latest depth chart lists 1st-round pick S Karl Joseph #2 at SS behind veteran Nate Allen. That doesn't necessarily mean he has let his new team down but rather that he's still developing -- especially after losing most of his senior year to an ACL tear and missing the offseason. Expect Joseph to replace Allen at some point this year. Neither should be on your IDP radar heading into the season, though.

The Raiders selected S Karl Joseph 14th overall in the NFL Draft. He'll start right away at the back of a defense that could still use some work. Joseph drew praise for his hard hitting in scouting reports but grabbed just 9 INTs over his 4 college seasons. He did at least finish with 5 in 2015.
