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.
Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) and S Jonathan Abram (shoulder, thumb) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills. Kwiatkoski -- who has been out since straining a pectoral muscle early in the season opener -- graduated to full practice Friday and looks on track to play. Abram put in limited workouts all week, but Raiders Wire reports that Abram "appears likely to play" as well. Both are IDP options if in the lineup. Holding off on Kwiatkoski for another week would be OK, though, as Buffalo has been a negative scoring matchup for fantasy LBs.
Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict (shoulder) and DB Lamarcus Joyner (groin) are active for today's game against the Vikings. Each entered the day questionable but is fine to use as you might have planned in your IDP lineup.
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.
