Smith suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4 and was later placed on injured reserve. He is arguably the Raiders' best blocking tight end and provides a boost to the running game when healthy. On the other hand, Smith amassed only six catches in four games before being injured, a sign that he is not a fantasy producer in Oakland's high-powered offense.
With Latavius Murray departing for Minnesota in free agency, there may be some thought that the Raiders are willing to let Richard and Washington handle the backfield. While it's still possible that's the case, the team probably prefers to add a bigger back through free agency or the draft. Adrian Peterson's name has been frequently mentioned, but the team might also consider a player along the lines of LeGarrette Blount, Tim Hightower or DeAngelo Williams. Richard and Washington were both efficient with their limited touches as rookies, but they struggled when asked to handle more work in Murray's absence.
Edwards was a late addition to Oakland's injury report Saturday. He played through illness in Week 17 and he'll do so once again after practicing fully throughout the week. He may be limited slightly but, since he's little more than a depth pass rusher, his limitations shouldn't impact the defense greatly.
This move by the Raiders' front office comes as no surprise, securing Mack as a key focus on the defensive side of the ball through the 2018 season. Although Mack is currently slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2019, the Raiders now have additional time to work out a long-term deal with the reigning Defensive Player of the Year.
Ward didn't produce much at Illinois, but his rawness is largely explained by inexperience, and the presumption is that he has considerable upside thanks to unusual athleticism for a player with such a big build. At 6-foot-5, 297 pounds, Ward is an enormous figure, but he showed standout quickness and explosiveness at the Combine by logging a 7.38-second three-cone drill and 111-inch broad jump at the Combine.
Luani is a former soccer player who showed a bit of a center fielder skill set at Washington State, intercepting four passes each of the last two years. Oakland is set at safety, so he'll try to make a special teams impact.
Calhoun hadn't played since Week 11 versus the Texans due to an issue with one of his knees. He went under the knife this week to fix whatever's been bothering him and will hope to be back in time for the start of start of the 2017 campaign.
Per the report, the first year of the the soon-to-be 30-year-old's deal is fully guaranteed. Cook, who caught 30 passes (on 51 targets) for 377 yards and a TD in 10 games for the Packers in 2016, figures to have an opportunity to supplant Clive Walford as the Raiders' top pass-catching option at tight end. In any case, he'll provide QB Derek Carr with another weapon on offense to work in tandem with top wideouts Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree.
Jones returned kicks for the Raiders in six games throughout the season, but never became involved in their offense. Rookie running backs DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard provided a spark behind Latavius Murray, leaving little opportunity for Jones. He has one year remaining on his contract with Oakland before becoming an unrestricted free agent in 2018.
Cook was in a tough spot, making his first career NFL start against the league's top-ranked defense, which led to predictable results. Oakland had just 203 yards of total offense and failed on 14 of 16 third-down attempts. The rookie was able to string together one good drive, but he missed targets all day and was hurt by some drops. The Raiders offense, so productive all season with Derek Carr steering, scored just 20 points in two games without him.
Holmes missed the entire 2016 season after suffering a severe high-ankle sprain in training camp. Although he's now recovered from the injury, Holmes looks set to enter the 2017 campaign buried on the depth chart under tight ends Jared Cook, Clive Walford, and Lee Smith.
Smith played through his shoulder injury late in the 2016 season but it turned out he was unable to make a full recovery without surgery. He's expected to be healthy and able to participate by the time offseason practices begin.
Brown, Chekwa and Moore had all been ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Carrie and Watson entered the contest listed as questionable. Carrie is dealing with an ankle injury. Watson has foot and ankle issues. Bergstrom and McGee are healthy scratches.
Crabtree led the Raiders in catches, targets and receiving touchdowns -- placing in the top 10 league-wide in the latter two categories -- despite playing opposite Amari Cooper, who blossomed into a Pro Bowler in his second season. In fact, 2016 marked the second time in eight seasons that Crabtree topped the 1,000-yard mark. Overall, his final numbers were strikingly similar to those from his first season in Oakland, when Crabtree posted a 85/922/9 line last year. That evidences the veteran's consistent role in a passing game that's emerged as one of the league's best behind quarterback Derek Carr, but Crabtree could improve his stock further by dropping fewer balls next season. Although he suffered a concussion in the Raiders' playoff loss Saturday, Crabtree figures to make a full recovery over the offseason, which he now enters having not missed a single regular season game over the past three years.
Tavecchio has spent time with the Packers, Lions and Raiders since 2013, but he's never made an active roster. The signing makes the current offseason the fourth straight that Tavecchio has spent with Oakland. He'll provide competition for Sebastian Janikowski, who will again be the frontrunner for the team's placekicking job.
The 26-year-old spent his firs three season in Green Bay. He projected to backup Dee Ford at the left outside linebacker position while Justin Houston is sidelined, so this cut is somewhat surprising. Dadi Nicolas now appears to have assumed that role
Lynch isn't dealing with any injuries or health concerns, but the Raiders are keeping the 31-year-old on the sidelines during OTAs as he continues to learn the new system. He may not suit up for practice until training camp, but for now, seventh-round pick Elijah Hood figures to see additional reps at running back as Lynch serves as his mentor.
Conley has been investigated by Cleveland police after he was accused of rape in early April, but evidently the Raiders' own investigation left them convinced that the accusation lacked merit. It's quite an investment for anything otherwise to be the case. If the allegations against Conley prove unsubstantiated, he could be a steal for the Raiders this late. Indeed, he was regarded as a potential top-10 pick prior to the breaking of the investigation.
Smith remains subject to the league's drug program, but will be reinstated given he stays on the right path throughout the coming months. He'll certainly add another pass-rushing presence for the Raiders' defense, while defensive end Khalil Mack was recently named 2016's defensive player of the year.
McGill will avoid missing his first game of the season despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to an abdomen injury. He'll serve as Karl Joseph's backup at strong safety.
Ellis was presented with many opportunities to stop the Saints' rushing attack, as they ran the ball just 22 times throughout the entire game. He should have a bigger role Week 2 against running back Devonta Freeman and the Falcons.
With Latavius Murray officially out of the picture, Washington and Richard -- both rookies last season -- are left atop the Oakland depth chart in some order. While both players easily topped five yards per carry last season, they struggled when an injury to Murray forced them into larger roles. Luckily for the Raiders, there are still some interesting power backs available in free agency, not to mention the upcoming draft. If the team surprisingly decides not to make any notable additions, Washington and Richard likely would battle for the starting job in training camp. The more likely scenario is a committee backfield featuring Washington, Richard and an offseason addition.
Carr broke his right fibula in Week 16 of last season but ended last month by stating his intention to be fully involved in Oakland's offseason work. Although the Raiders' exertions were likely on the lighter side to start off their program, the fact Carr completed all the tasks that his teammates did is certainly encouraging. According to all accounts, Carr's recovery has gone tremendously well, but given his massive importance, it's likely his status will continue to be updated until he's back in full football activities. In the meantime, Carr hopes to secure a new contract with the Raiders before training camp and said Monday his agent and general manager Reggie McKenzie have been in talks over a deal for months.
Perfectly coinciding with Derek Carr's (broken leg) absence, Janikowski didn't attempt a field goal in any of the Raiders' last three games as the offense simply couldn't move the ball on a consistent basis. Despite this sudden dropoff in usage, Janikowski still finished the 2016 campaign with the 10th-most field goals in the league and could make for an attractive fantasy option on an up-and-coming Oakland squad in 2017.
Despite being limited in practice throughout the week due to a hamstring issue, Riley will suit up for Saturday's tilt. Riley, a middle linebacker, has just two games with more than five tackles this season.
Williams spent the past two seasons in Oakland, recording 65 tackles and 1.5 sacks through 32 games. The 29-year-old should attract the attention of at least a handful of teams as training camp nears.
Jenkins had just 29 tackles and one pass defensed with the Dolphins in 2016 while also missing seven games due to a knee injury. When healthy, he's a starting caliber linebacker, and he's expected to compete with Tyrell Adams for the Raiders starting weakside linebacker position in 2017.
Holton was also handed a rushing attempt, but he failed to gain a single yard. He finishes the 2016 regular season with just two receptions on three targets for 34 yards in 15 games. He also rushed for 43 yards on six carries to go along with a lost fumble. It was a bit of an uneventful rookie season for Holton, but he has two years left on his contract with the Raiders so he'll look to prove his worth down the road.
The Raiders didn't have the services of their 2016 first-rounder for the final four outings of the regular season due to an injured left big toe. After turning in limited showings in practice this week, Joseph will return for the first time since Week 13 as the starting strong safety, from which he racked up 60 tackles (44 solo), one interception, and one fumble recovery prior to the recent respite.
Helfet appeared in 25 games for the Seahawks in 2014 and 2015 but was waived after fracturing his foot in training camp last summer. With Mychal Rivera set to hit free agency, Helfet appears to have a wide-open shot to secure the Raiders' No. 3 tight end slot in advance of the 2017 campaign.
Melifonwu is unlikely to see many defensive snaps as long as both Reggie Nelson and Karl Joseph are healthy at safety, but he may see some looks in nickel and dime defenses, and he should immediately take on a big special teams workload. He's an incredible athlete at 6-foot-4, 224 pounds, boasting 4.4 speed, a 44-inch vertical and a 141-inch broad jump. Being as tall as he is can make it hard to stop and cut as necessary in coverage, but George Iloka is one such case of a safety succeeding in the NFL at a similar build.
James was limited in practice all week but isn't expected to be limited on Thursday. He'll start at linebacker alongside Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith once again.
Autry played significant snaps for the Raiders in 2016 and racked up 2.5 sacks in the process. However, he could be in store for a major decrease in playing time if Mario Edwards is able to stay healthy this upcoming season.
Lee, who was drafted in the fifth round on Saturday, will be part of a battle for the starting role at middle linebacker in Oakland among a severely thin and inexperienced corps. Cory James and Ben Heeney currently round out the remaining options at MLB, but the team may still look to sign a veteran. Lee, a solid run defender, will have to polish his craft in coverage situations in order to potentially earn the job.
Heeney is coming up on 13 weeks since having surgery and is about three weeks from being able to do contact work. He recorded 15 tackles in only four games for the Raiders in 2016, so his return to action should give a boost to Oakland's front seven.
O'Malley was seeing limited action behind Clive Walford and Mychal Rivera before being released.
Locked in as Oakland's top playmaker, Cooper could benefit from playing alongside a receiver with the speed to stretch defenses downfield. Michael Crabtree and slot man Seth Roberts were excellent complements the past two seasons, but neither has the wheels to scare opposing safeties. Even if he's only a part-time player on offense -- which seems likely -- Patterson could open things up a bit for Cooper, Crabtree and Roberts on short and intermediate routes. Cooper skipped the Pro Bowl with an undisclosed injury, but there's been nothing to suggest he's still hampered as he prepares for what should be a big third season in the NFL.
A 2015 third-round selection, Walford didn't develop as expected in his second professional season, catching only 33 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns (on 52 targets) in 15 games. The stat line closely mimicked his rookie-year production as he continued to split work with Mychal Rivera in a passing game that was highly reliant on its wideouts. Rivera departed for Jacksonville in free agency, but the Raiders seemingly made an upgrade with the signing of Jared Cook, who likely will enter training camp as the favorite to serve as the team's No. 1 tight end. Walford could still push for the job if he regains his explosiveness and impresses during the offseason program.
The contract suggests Manuel may be released if he doesn't beat out 2016 fourth-round selection Connor Cook in a battle for the No. 2 quarterback job. Starting signal-caller Derek Carr (broken fibula) is believed to be on schedule or even slightly ahead in his rehab process.
Irvin and fellow pass-rusher Khalil Mack were unable to get to the quarterback in what turns out to be the Raiders' lone playoff tilt. The 29-year-old veteran has three years remaining on his contract with Oakland, so he'll look to start for the Raiders at outside linebacker again in 2017.
The 2013 first-round selection also expects to have a big role in the return game, which is where he really shined during his four-year tenure with the Vikings. Patterson did regain some offensive relevance last season after catching only two passes in 2015, but he's yet to reach 500 receiving yards in a campaign. He may have to settle for another limited offensive role in Oakland, where Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts formed a highly effective wideout trio the past two seasons. Patterson might get a shot to push Roberts for the No. 3 role, but the incumbent would probably have the edge in such a competition. While Patterson's two-year contract does include $5 million guaranteed, it can be voided after the first season, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
Ball was placed on IR after clearing waivers back in August. He's now ended his first two years in the league on IR and he'll be looking to stay healthy and make an impact for the Raiders in 2017.
Roberts earned the one-year deal after a 38-catch, five-touchdown 2016 season. The 26-year-old will likely have to outperform what he was able to do last season if he hopes to secure a long-term deal in the near future. As for the immediate, Roberts projects to function as a depth receiver for the Raiders in 2017.
