Olawale gained six yards on one carry during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans. Olawale was given a rushing attempt for the first time in the Raiders' last seven games, while Latavius Murray, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington continued to lead the way out of the backfield.
Olawale caught one pass on one target for 10 yards in Sunday's regular season finale against the Broncos. Olawale finished the 2016 regular season with 47 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 17 carries to go along with 12 receptions on 14 targets for 227 yards and one score in 16 games. The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his contract with Oakland, but he figures to remain an afterthought in terms of fantasy attention.
Olawale caught three passes for 90 yards and a touchdown on three targets during Monday's win over the Texans. Olawale was one of the unlikeliest options to lead the Raiders' in receiving on Monday, but his 75-yard catch and run touchdown in the fourth quarter tied the game up, and ultimately led to the team's eighth win of the season. The fullback figures to remain fantasy irrelevant, but he likely enjoyed the spotlight for once.
Olawale (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Broncos. Olawale had been questionable after being limited in practice throughout the week. He should see his normal workload on Sunday.
Olawale (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Broncos. Olawale was limited in practice throughout the week and is likely on the probable side of questionable. In the event he's held out look for Taiwan Jones and Jalen Richard to see some extra reps.
