Raiders' Tahir Whitehead: Productive in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead collected a team-high 10 tackles (six solo) to go along with two passes defensed and an interception in Sunday's 24-21 win over the Steelers.

Whitehead has now forced a turnover in consecutive weeks as he continues to lead the Raiders in tackles as well. He's racked up double-digit tackles in two of the team's past three games and will look to maintain momentum against the Bengals on Sunday.

Raiders' Tahir Whitehead: Forces fumble in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead accounted for seven tackles (all solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 40-33 loss to the Chiefs.

Whitehead finally forced his first turnover of the season, stripping the ball from Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce during the first quarter of Sunday's tilt. Whitehead is now six tackles away from reaching the 100-tackle mark for a third straight season heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Steelers.

Raiders' Tahir Whitehead: Posts season high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead logged 14 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defended during Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.

Whitehead led the Raiders with 14 tackles Sunday, and has put up at least seven tackles in five straight games. The seven-year veteran has yet to record a sack this season, but will nonetheless remain a reliable IDP asset against the Chiefs in Week 13.

Raiders' Tahir Whitehead: Collects seven tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead logged seven tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 23-21 win over the Cardinals.

Whitehead has now accounted for seven tackles in each of the Raiders' past four contests, bringing his season total to 71 (53 solo). He'll be a primary candidate to lead the team in tackles during a Week 12 matchup with the Ravens, but Whitehead has yet to force a turnover or record a sack this season.

Raiders' Tahir Whitehead: Leads team with seven tackles Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead accounted for seven tackles (six solo) and four tackles for loss in Thursday's 34-3 loss to the 49ers.

Whitehead's four tackles for loss were a bright spot for a struggling Raiders defense that failed to contain 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens in his first career start. Whitehead should be busy again in Week 10 against the Chargers, especially given Oakland's decision to release fellow outside linebacker Bruce Irvin on Saturday.
