Position Listing
Rodney Hudson
News
Free agent center Rodney Hudson agreed to a five-year, $44.5 million deal with the Raiders, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Hudson, 25, started 31 of 32 games for the Chiefs over the past two seasons.

When Hudson officially signs the contract on Tuesday, he'll become the league's highest-paid center.

Ricky Lumpkin
News
The Raiders have made a flurry of moves, including the placing of tight end David Ausberry on the reserve/injured list with a foot injury sustained on Oct. 19. His place on the roster will be taken by defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin, who was promoted from the practice squad.

Ausberry finishes the year with just two catches for 14 yards in six games.

Cornerback Jansen Watson, who was cut by Oakland before the season, has been added to the practice squad.

Kevin Boothe
News
The Raiders plan to release offensive guard Kevin Boothe, reports Fox Sports 1.

Boothe played in nine games during the 2014 season, but he started 32 games in 2012 and 2013 for the Giants.

Lee Smith
News
The Raiders announced the signings of defensive tackle Dan Williams and tight end Lee Smith on Wednesday. 

Williams spent the previous five years with the Cardinals, where he started 40 of the 70 games he played in. Williams totaled 116 tackles and two sacks. He recorded a single-season best 45 tackles a year ago. 

Smith spent the past four seasons with the Bills and is predominantly a blocking tight end. He was originally drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round in 2011 before being placed on waivers — which is how the Bills acquired him. 

Shelby Harris
News
The Raiders announced they elevated defensive end Shelby Harris from the practice squad and put tight end Brian Leonhardt (concussion) on injured reserve. Oakland signed kicker Michael Palardy to take Harris' spot on the practice squad.
Max Valles
News
Guard/center Jon Feliciano, a fourth-rounder who is set to battle for a starting job, and sixth-round defensive end Max Valles have signed their rookie contracts, the Raiders have announced.

Valles recorded 78 tackles and 13 sacks over two seasons at Virginia.

Latavius Murray
News
Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio expects Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete for the starting running back spot on the team, per ESPN.

"I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Del Rio also spoke about the fact that he is encouraged by Richardson's potential.

"What I saw when we brought him in and talked to him was a young man that was hungry to kind of leave that portion of his career behind him and start fresh," Del Rio said. "My challenge to him was, 'Look, I don't want you to worry about anything other than coming in here and competing your butt off every day. Come in here and be a great teammate. Come in here and find a role on special teams. Come in here and just grind every day with the hunger you had as a freshman at Alabama.'"

Khalil Mack
News
The Raiders may solve their pass rushing needs by moving second-year linebacker Khalil Mack to defensive end. 

Mack was drafted fifth overall last year, after tying the NCAA career record for tackles-for-loss. He had four sacks for the Raiders as a rookie. 

"He plays defensive end for us already in sub packages," coach Jack Del Rio said at the NFL owners meetings, per ESPN. "So, I think it would be natural for him to be able to play whatever we decide is best for him, how it helps the team best. ... He’s definitely shown he’s got ability to be an edge rusher, a defensive end, he is that in that capacity. I feel like it’s how we best want to utilize him and who we have around him as well."

Tarell Brown
News
Free agent cornerback Tarell Brown was in New England on Tuesday for a second visit with the Patriots, according to ESPN.com.

Brown visited with the team in March, but left without a contract. Brown played in 2014 with the Raiders, totaling 55 tackles with four passes defended. He spent the the previous seven years in San Francisco where he amassed 11 interceptions.

Charles Woodson
News
Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is set to be one of the NFL's top free-agent targets . At least one NFL veteran has made it clear he'd like Suh to join his team.

Speaking to ESPN.com, Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson said that Suh is the type of dominating defensive player that any team would want to add.

“I know I would be no different. That guy is one of the best, overall, period in the NFL," Woodson said. "Would I like him on our team? Believe it.”

Suh was taken by the Lions with the second-overall pick in the 2010 draft. Until March 7, when the legal tampering period begins, NFL teams won't be able to negotiate with players' agents. Until then, the only team that can stay in contact with Suh's agent, Jimmy Sexton, is Detroit. The official free-agent period starts March 10, when the new league year begins.

The Lions have reason to bring Suh back as they'll have a $9,737,500 cap charge for Suh regardless if he's franchised, re-signed or gone, due to bonus money prorated for the 2015 season.

One reason Woodson would like Suh is to make the Raiders' defensive backs' jobs easier. In 2014, Oakland allowed 238.1 yards through the air per game, which ranked 17th in the NFL.

“The better your front is, the better it makes your job as a defensive back and the ability to know that the ball is coming out soon," Woodson said.

The Oakland Raiders made their final cuts before Saturday's deadline. The team parted ways with WR Greg Little, RB George Atkinson, DE Denico Autry, CB Chance Casey, OL Jack Cornell, DE Jack Crawford, LB Carlos Fields, LB Bojay Filimoeatu, LB Spencer Hadley, OL Danny Kistler, OL Erle Ladson, DT Ricky Lumpkin, OL Lamar Mady, TE Jake Murphy, WR Seth Roberts, DE Ryan Robinson, S Brandian Ross, OL Jarrod Shaw, TE Scott Simonson, RB Jeremy Stewart, K Giorgio Tavecchio and FB Karl Williams.
Usama Young
News
The Raiders placed defensive end LaMarr Woodley (bicep) and safety Usama Young (knee) on the season-ending injured reserve list Saturday.

Woodley suffered a torn bicep muscle in Week 7 against the Cardinals. Young tore his ACL and MCL in the same game.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for start of season
Miles Burris
News
Linebacker Miles Burris wrote on his Instagram that he has been released by the Raiders, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Burris started all 16 games for the Raiders last season and recorded 109 tackles, 76 of them solo. His release appears to be a casualty of Oakland going in a new direction with its coaching staff, as Burris was preferred by former defensive coordinator Jason Tarver. 

Injury
Kenbrell Thompkins
News
After making only modest contributions since coming over from the Patriots in Week 6, Raiders wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins suddenly emerged as quarterback Derek Carr's favorite target Week 16 against Buffalo, catching five passes for 90 yards. He hadn't caught even one pass since Week 13, and his previous high in yardage was 47.

Of course, you should know how this goes by now. Fellow wide receivers James Jones and Andre Holmes have both had their stretches of Fantasy relevance this season, as has tight end Mychal Rivera. The Raiders have a multitude of viable receiving targets, but their roles aren't so clear, which makes the task of picking the most impactful from week to week next to impossible.

In other words, you'd need to play in an especially deep league to take a flier on Thompkins for the season's final week.

George Atkinson
News
The Raiders announced they signed running back George Atkinson Saturday.

To make room for Atkinson on the 53-man roster, the team officially placed cornerback Carlos Rogers on injured reserve. Atkinson has yet to play in an NFL regular season game.

Taiwan Jones
News
After spending the last two seasons as a cornerback, the Raiders will move Taiwan Jones back to running back this season, reports CSNBayArea.com.

Jones was drafted in 2011 as a running back out of Eastern Washington. He has been playing in the defensive back field since the 2013 season. Jones missed 15 games last season with a foot injury.

Sio Moore
News
Raiders linebacker Sio Moore underwent a "major" surgical procedure on his injured hip, general manager Reggie McKenzie said at the NFL combine.

Via ESPN.com, McKenzie said Moore will not be ready for organized team activities. Moore is expected back by training camp.

In 11 games in 2014, Moore recorded 90 tackles and three sacks. He ended the season on injured reserve due to the hip injury.

Injury
Hip - Questionable for start of training camp
Michael Crabtree
News
Wide receiver Michael Crabtree is shedding no tears over his departure from the 49ers, which resulted in a short move to Oakland.

Crabtree signed a one-year, incentive-laden deal for $3.2 million with the Raiders.

His experience in San Francisco was not always positive, especially as it neared its end. He spoke about feeling disrespected, referring himself as a third-down receiver and a fourth option, after an overtime victory over New Orleans. The result was criticism about his attitude.

"That's just talk," Crabtree told ESPN. "I don't worry about talk. Some people say a lot of things, but until you get to know people, then you'll know for yourself. It's just talk. ... I was friends with my teammates."

Crabtree never fulfilled his potential with the Niners after being selected No. 10 overall in 2009. Injuries prevented him from displaying his explosiveness and he finished his six seasons there with 347 receptions for 4,237 yards and 26 touchdowns.

Larry Asante
News

The following players were signed as restricted free agents: Larry Asante, Andre Holmes, Marquette King, Brandian Ross and Rod Streater.

News
Raiders defensive back Neiko Thorpe signed his exclusive-rights tender on Thursday, according to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson. 

Thorpe began his NFL career with the Chiefs in 2012, bouncing between the practice squad and the 53-man roster. After spending part of the 2013 season in Canada, he joined the Raiders and made the 53-man roster in 2014. 

With Oakland a season ago, Thorpe totaled five tackles in the nine games he appeared in.

Justin Tuck
News
If defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Lions, then he will become a free agent March 10 and there will be plenty of teams interested in the Pro Bowl lineman. 

Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck indicated if Suh wanted to sign with Oakland, then he would be welcomed in Raider Nation.

"(He's) Raider-ish," Tuck said, per the Detroit Free Press. "And that's one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact that he's an awesome football player. He kind of fits the mold of ... the toughness and the ferocious player that built the Oakland Raiders."

It is speculated Suh will receive a contract worth at least $100 million. Tuck believes the three-time All-Pro deserves such a lucrative deal.

"The thing about him, you know what you're getting every day. Some of the tactics, you could probably do without, but he's a hell of a football player," Tuck said. "I would love to have the opportunity to line up beside of him and let him take all the double teams that I normally take."

Jonathan Dowling
News
The Raiders announced a couple of roster moves prior to Sunday's game against the 49ers. The team placed safety Jonathan Dowling on injured reserve with a back injury and added tight end Scott Simonson to the 53-man active roster, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

News
A quartet of Raiders have been red-lighted for the Sunday game against the Broncos, including cornerbacks Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring) and Carlos Rogers (knee). The others are tight end David Ausberry (foot) and guard Gabe Jackson (knee).

Listed as questionable is T.J. Carrie (ankle) while wideout Vincent Brown (hamstring), cornerback Keith McGill (groin), fullback Jamize Olawale (shoulder) and defensive end Justin Tuck (knee) are probable.

News

It was previously reported by ESPN that surgery was a potential option for Carr. 

“I don’t know where this idea came up that he’s going to be having surgery,” Younger said. “The situation, I don’t even want to call it an injury, is very minor, and we’re just being cautious.”

Carr has been held out of team activities to start the offseason. 

Injury
Finger - Probable for start of training camp
Sebastian Janikowski
News
Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski did not receive a field goal attempt Week 17 against the Broncos.

Janikowski did have two extra point attempts, but that was it. The Raiders had a tough time putting points on the board, so Janikowski's main focus was kickoff duty. He converted 19 of 22 attempts on the year.

Brice Butler
News
The Raiders threw for 183 yards with three interceptions in their 52-0 loss at St. Louis, so there wasn't a lot of production to go around. Wideout Andre Holmes caught three of six targets for 28 yards, and wideout Kenbrell Thompkins hauled in two of five targets for 28 yards.

Receiver Brice Butler secured both his targets for 27 yards. Tight end Mychal Rivera caught three of eight targets for 21 yards, and wideout Vincent Brown had a 10-yard grab.

Raiders tackle Donald Penn subdued a home invasion attempt earlier this month, according to a report by TMZ

The 6-4, 340-pound Penn was home with his wife and two children in Los Angeles, when a man jumped his security fence, smashed through the front door and began "going crazy" inside the home.

Penn claims he doesn't know the man, but he was able to physically restrain the 6-1, 220-pound intruder until police arrived. 

Penn got a temporary restraining order against the man, requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from the family. The case will be heard later this month, when the Penn's are expected to request that the order be made permanent.

Austin Howard
News
The Raiders drafted Miami guard Jon Feliciano in the fourth round, and offensive line coach Mike Tice has him slated for right guard. 

Feliciano will need to beat out veteran Khalif Barnes to win the job. 

"Right guard and right tackle is an open competition,"  Tice said, per CSN Bay Area. "We’re pretty set on the left and in the middle, and hopefully those guys can maintain their growth. We pointed out some things they can get better at, but the right side is where the competition is."

The candidates for right tackle are Menelik Watson and Austin Howard

"All you want coming in is an opportunity to compete and get better," Feliciano said. "We have that there at the Raiders, and I know everyone is going to go in there and compete. That’s going to be awesome."

Trent Richardson
News
Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio expects Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete for the starting running back spot on the team, per ESPN.

"I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Del Rio also spoke about the fact that he is encouraged by Richardson's potential.

"What I saw when we brought him in and talked to him was a young man that was hungry to kind of leave that portion of his career behind him and start fresh," Del Rio said. "My challenge to him was, 'Look, I don't want you to worry about anything other than coming in here and competing your butt off every day. Come in here and be a great teammate. Come in here and find a role on special teams. Come in here and just grind every day with the hunger you had as a freshman at Alabama.'"

Roy Helu
News
The Raiders announced that they've officially signed former Redskins running back Roy Helu Jr. 

It was previously reported by ESPN's Adam Caplan that Helu agreed to a two-year, $4 million deal. Helu was selected by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft. During his time in Washington, he ran for 1,132 yards and seven touchdowns and totaled 1,152 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns. 

Helu will likely be used as a third-down back behind Latavius Murray.

Nick Roach
News
Raiders linebacker Nick Roach's 2015 season could be in doubt already.

According to the San Francisco Chroncle, Roach may be forced to sit out this coming season due to recurring headaches stemming from a concussion sustained last preseason.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie was asked about Roach's status during his media availability on Wednesday.

“[T]hat decision is up to Nick and the medical staff," McKenzie said. "I am not going to rush him to play when mentally he’s not ready.”

In 2013, Roach recorded 112 tackles, four forced fumbles and one interception — all of which were single-season bests. Prior to signing with Oakland in 2013, Roach spent six seasons with the Bears.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for start of season
Marcel Reece
News
Raiders running back Marcel Reece has been a difference-maker in PPR leagues before, catching 52 passes in 2012, so his back-to-back games with at least six catches are worth noting in Fantasy, especially since he scored on one of his seven grabs Week 14 against San Francisco. With the emergence of Latavius Murray as the primary ball carrier, Reece probably isn't versatile enough for standard-league use, but he's no less relevant than, say, Roy Helu.

Marquette King
News
Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater and punter Marquette King are both going to sign their restricted free agent tenders, reports csnbayarea.com.

Andre Holmes
News
Raiders wide receiver Andre Holmes is going to sign his tender with the team, according to ESPN.

Holmes was given a low-tender offer by the team, meaning another team could match the offer and the Raiders would receive no compensation in return if he was signed.

The 26-year-old started 13 games last season, registering 47 receptions for 693 yards and four touchdowns. 

J'Marcus Webb
News

Mychal Rivera
News
Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera had a productive three-game stretch earlier in the season, so his seven-catch, 109-yard, touchdown-scoring performance Week 14 against San Francisco wasn't completely out of nowhere. But considering he had a combined seven catches for 69 yards in three games in between, a repeat performance might be a bit much to ask. The Chiefs, his Week 15 opponent, permitted him just one catch for 8 yards in Week 12.

For more major takeaways from Week 14, check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

Ras-I Dowling

The Raiders will have both Ras-I Dowling and Khalil Mack Week 17 against the Broncos.
