Steelers' Ryan Switzer: One reception in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer recorded one reception for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Switzer only managed 12 plays on offense but the wideout is also handling all punt and kick returns, recording 74 total return yards on Sunday. Look for Switzer to continue to play a larger role on special teams than offense for now.

Raiders' Ryan Switzer: Snags touchdown in preseason victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer caught a seven-yard touchdown pass on his lone target during Friday's preseason win over the Lions.

Switzer, who is looking to carve out a role in the Raiders' offense as a potentially gadget-type slot receiver, was on the receiving end of a touchdown throw from backup quarterback Connor Cook on Friday. The former Cowboy has caught the eye of head coach Jon Gruden throughout training camp, so at this point Switzer's roster spot doesn't appear to be in much danger as he also competes for a gig in the return game.

Raiders' Ryan Switzer: Making case for role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer is making a case to earn a role on offense, Scott Bair of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "Ryan Switzer has really caught my eye," said Raiders coach Jon Gruden. "Switzer has come in here and not only been a punt returner, kick returner, he's come in and been a force as a slot receiver. He's really done well."

The Raiders traded DL Jihad Ward to Dallas for Switzer in April, seemingly hoping for an easy fix to last year's struggles in the return game. The 2017 fourth-round pick still figures to get most of his touches on special teams, but he also should have a chance to beat out Seth Roberts for the No. 4 wideout role. Switzer could then find himself getting regular playing time in the slot if Amari Cooper, Jordy Nelson or Martavis Bryant were to miss time.

Raiders' Ryan Switzer: Shipped to Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer was traded from Dallas to Oakland for defensive tackle Jihad Ward.

Switzer, a 2017 fourth-round pick, hauled in six passes on seven targets for 41 yards last season, and his best contributions came on special teams. The 5-foot-11, 181-pounder had 856 total return yards and took a punt back for a touchdown, so he'll likely take over as Oakland's return specialist in 2018, helping to replace Cordarrelle Patterson (Patriots).

Cowboys' Ryan Switzer: Undergoes minor ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Switzer recently underwent surgery to remove bone spurs in his left ankle, Mickey Spagnola of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Switzer was bothered by an ankle injury during the final five games of the 2017 season. This procedure isn't considered to be serious and the budding wideout is expected to be healthy in time for offseason workouts.
