  • Nelson logged five tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 34-14 loss to the Bills. Nelson has racked up 44 tackles through eight games this season, but the Raiders' starting free safety has yet to force a single turnover. As a result, his IDP value has been somewhat limited while Oakland has unexpectedly struggled to a 3-5 start. Nelson will look to snag the first interception of his 2017 campaign in Week 9 against the Dolphins, who plan to be led by quarterback Jay Cutler (ribs).

  • Nelson racked up eight tackles (six solo) Thursday against the Chiefs. This was Nelson's third game with eight tackles, but unlike the past two seasons when he accumulated a combined 13 interceptions, he has yet to snag a pick this campaign. He still makes enough tackles to be a mediocre IDP threat, but he'll need to make some interceptions before he can be considered high-caliber.

  • Nelson racked up eight tackles (five solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's win over the Titans. Nelson was the second-leading tackler for the Raiders on Sunday, while fellow safety Karl Joseph led the way with nine. Oakland's secondary, which disappointed in 2016, played well enough in Week 1 to limit Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to no completion longer than 24 yards and zero passing touchdowns. Nelson and crew have a much easier matchup in Week 2 against a lousy Jets offense led by QB Josh McCown.

  • Nelson racked up five tackles (five solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Texans. Nelson hadn't reached the five-tackle mark in the Raiders' previous four contests, but he was able to due so in Oakland's first and only game of the playoffs.

  • Raiders' Reggie Nelson: Nabs interception Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson recorded three tackles (two solo), one pass defensed, and one interception during Sunday's win over the Chargers. Nelson's interception was essentially the game sealer in the fourth quarter when Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers sailed his intended target, with the ball ending up in the hands of Nelson. This marks Nelson's fourth pick of the season, good enough for the team lead.
