Even if he's splitting reps, Maurice Jones-Drew is motivated
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Saying it's "hilarious" to hear about people doubting his abilities, Maurice Jones-Drew said Thursday that he's fully prepared to show the world that he can still play at a high level

"I know what I have left," Jones-Drew said according to the San Jose Mercury News. "I know the work I put in this offseason to get to where I need to get to be able to play at a high level. I stopped worrying about what people were saying."

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen reaffirmed that Jones-Drew will split carries with Darren McFadden, something MJD has to get used to since he hasn't split with anyone in some time. A Sports Illustrated report said McFadden has an edge on Jones-Drew in the race to start. 

Through his eight-year career, Jones-Drew has amassed 1,818 carries and 342 catches. He'll be 29 years old when the season starts and turns 30 in March 2015.

Matt Schaub 'getting his mojo back'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

After a disastrous 2013 season with the Texans, quarterback Matt Schaub is settling in with the Raiders and regaining his confidence, reports the Sacramento Bee.

"Schauby's getting his mojo back," defensive tackle Antonio Smith told the paper. "He's getting his confidence back. He's starting to believe in himself again.

"He's starting to throw with confidence. Those are things you need to be a successful quarterback. You would be surprised just much a mindset is important in this game. ... The moment you are doubting yourself is the moment you start throwing a lot of interceptions and stuff."

Raiders coach Dennis Allen thinks Schaub can again be a Top-10 quarterback.

"I think he's in a good frame of mind," Allen said. "I think he's very hungry. I think he's excited about the new opportunity. I think anytime you go into something new there's a little bit of, maybe it's an increased focus, an increased intensity level, because it is new. You kind of force yourself out of your comfort zone a little bit. I think he's done that."
