Marcell Ateman: Back on practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Ateman to the practice squad Tuesday.

Ateman was cut from the same practice squad last Thursday. He's a candidate to be elevated to the active roster for this Thursday's game against the Chargers because Henry Ruggs is on the reserve/COVID-19 list and won't play. Ateman hasn't played since 2019, when he posted a 5-116-0 line through 11 games with the Raiders.

Marcell Ateman: Cut from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders cut Ateman from the practice squad Thursday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Ateman didn't suit up for game action with the Raiders in 2020, but he appeared in 18 games for the team from 2018-19. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound wideout will likely look to catch on with a practice squad elsewhere in the league.

Marcell Ateman: Cleared from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders restored Ateman (undisclosed) to the practice squad Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Ateman resided on the practice squad injured list for the past month, but he's finally healthy enough to return to practice. He'll continue to push for a roster spot as a depth receiver around the league now that he's healthy.

Marcell Ateman: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list Saturday.

Ateman didn't make the team's final roster following training camp, and now he won't be able to practice as he rehabs from an undisclosed injury. If the Raiders need another receiver on the active roster, Keelan Doss will likely be the first call.

Marcell Ateman: Joins Raiders' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Ateman to the practice squad Sunday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

After recording 116 yards on five receptions in 2019, Ateman failed to make the 53-man roster this year after the additions of Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Nelson Agholor. He's joined by Keelan Doss as the team's practice squad receivers who could be called upon if an injury bug surfaces.

Marcell Ateman: Cut by Las Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman was waived by the Raiders on Saturday.

Ateman geared up in 11 games for the Raiders last season and caught five of 10 targets for 116 yards, but even with Tyrell Williams (shoulder) going to IR, the offseason additions of Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Nelson Agholor were enough to push Ateman to the roster bubble. If he clears waivers, he'll likely be retained on the practice squad.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Season-high seven targets in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman caught three of seven targets for 46 yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Broncos, finishing his 2019 campaign with five receptions on 10 targets for 116 yards in 11 games.

Ateman's role in the Raiders' aerial attack was severely limited throughout his second year in the league until finally logging a season-high 52 offensive snaps and seven targets in Week 17. He'll look to compete for a roster spot again in 2020 alongside fellow reserves Rico Gafford and Keelan Doss behind current starters Tyrell Williams (foot), Hunter Renfrow and Zay Jones.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Active in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman (ribs) is active for Sunday's Week 15 tilt against the Jaguars.

Ateman will overcome his questionable designation to suit up Sunday but he still has an uphill battle to fantasy relevance. Even with fellow wideout Hunter Renfrow (ribs) out of action, Ateman remains no better than No. 5 in the receiver pecking order.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Managing rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a rib injury, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Ateman was added to the injury report Thursday as a limited practice participant and his status for Sunday remains in doubt. The 25-year-old hasn't played double-digit snaps over the past six games, so his availability is unlikely to significantly impact Oakland's offensive gameplan.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Catches only target in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman caught his lone target for a 34-yard gain in Sunday's 31-24 win over Detroit.

Ateman played just four snaps but made his one touch count, hauling in a deep ball over the middle to set up the Raiders inside the 10 for an eventual touchdown. The 25-year-old has appeared in just three games and made just two catches this year, but they've both been for gains of more than 30 yards. He'll still be buried on the depth chart as the Raiders host the Chargers in Week 10.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Notches 36-yard reception Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman caught his lone target for 36 receiving yards in Sunday's 42-24 loss to the Packers.

Ateman logged 23-plus offensive snaps for the second straight game with fellow receivers Tyrell Williams (foot), Dwayne Harris (ankle) and Zay Jones (coach's decision) all sidelined, but Ateman has recorded just one total reception during this span of increased opportunity. Williams' plantar fasciitis may keep him out in Week 8 against the Texans as well, which could lend Ateman additional chances to prove his worthiness of a roster spot in Oakland moving forward.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Serving as No. 4 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman will step up as the Raiders' No. 4 wide receiver against the Packers on Sunday, Paul Gutierrez of reports.

Ateman is facing a notable opportunity with Tyrell Williams (foot), Zay Jones (coach's decision) and Dwayne Harris (ankle) all inactive. The big-bodied wideout is a candidate to see key looks in Oakland's aerial attack Sunday, though he may not have a consistent role once the team's other weapons get healthy.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Rejoins Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman signed a contract with the Raiders on Thursday, NBC Sports California reports.

Ateman was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday, and he now rejoins the team following the release of fellow wideout J.J. Nelson. The 25-year-old stands to reprise his depth role in Oakland's aerial attack alongside the likes of Keelan Doss, Trevor Davis and Dwayne Harris (ankle).

Marcell Ateman: Let go by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman was waived by the Raiders on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The 25-year-old was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad Saturday, but he'll lose his roster spot in order to free up space for the acquisition of WR Zay Jones. Ateman played 28 offensive snaps Sunday but did not receive a target. He's a candidate to rejoin the team's practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Rises to 53-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

With Tyrell Williams (foot), J.J. Nelson (knee) and Dwayne Harris (elbow) listed as questionable, Ateman was brought up for depth in case one or more of them sit out. Ateman suited up in seven games for the Raiders last year, hauling in 15 of 31 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown.

Marcell Ateman: Joins Oakland's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman signed with the Raiders' practice squad Sunday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Ateman spent the final seven games of last season on the active roster (catching 15 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown) after starting the season on the practice squad, and he'll begin the 2019 campaign in the same position. The 2018 seventh-round pick had eight catches for 101 yards as he garnered three stars in the preseason.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Posts 49 yards in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman caught five of seven targets for 49 yards in Thursday's 17-15 preseason loss to Seattle.

Ateman had a solid showing in his final opportunity to earn a roster spot this preseason. Fellow fringe wideout Keelan Doss had more receptions and yards, but he also received a team-high 12 targets. There is likely only room for one -- if either -- of the lanky wideouts on the 53-man roster, so we will see who head coach Jon Gruden decides to roll with when roster cuts are due Saturday.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Long gainer as home team wins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman was targeted once and turned that opportunity into a 19-yard gain during Oakland's 14-3 win against the Rams on Saturday.

Entering the league as a seventh-round draft choice out of Oklahoma State, Ateman was cut last September before rejoining the Raiders in November, and proceeding to average three receptions for 32 yards over his first four appearances. In his final three games, however, Ateman managed just three total receptions for 27 yards. Barring a bombardment of injuries, Ateman isn't expected to get the requisite amount of playing time to produce a lucrative fantasy campaign.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: Sticking with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders signed Ateman, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday.

Ateman has been nudged down the depth chart throughout the offseason due to the trade for Antonio Brown and signings of Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson and Ryan Grant (toe). Still, Ateman may get in the act as an X receiver in 2019, considering GM Mike Mayock called him the projected starter at the spot before all the additions. In a seven-game cameo to conclude last season, Ateman hauled in 15 of his 31 targets for 154 yards and one touchdown.

Raiders' Marcell Ateman: No longer projects as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ateman is part of a receiving corps that has added Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams while subtracting Jordy Nelson, Scott Bair of NBC Bay Area reports.

It's a net loss for Ateman's standing on the depth chart, seemingly dropping him to No. 4 behind Brown, Williams and slot man Seth Roberts. The Raiders do at least seem to view Ateman as an asset, with general manager Mike Mayock saying in late February that the 2018 seventh-round pick would enter the offseason as a projected starter. He obviously lost that standing in a hurry, but Ateman should still have a good chance to keep his spot on the 53-man roster.
