Raiders' Curtis Riley: Plays in all 16 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley had 34 tackles (27 solo), one pass defensed and one forced fumble in 16 games this season.

The 27-year-old filled a rotational role in the secondary for most of the season, but he did receive three starts, including Week 17 when he posted seven solo tackles and a forced fumble. Overall it was still somewhat of a disappointing season for Riley, as his playing time was limited despite Johnathan Abram (shoulder) landing on injured reserve after the season opener. Riley returns to free agency in March after a season of inconsistent defensive opportunities on a porous pass defense.

Raiders' Curtis Riley: Posts season-high six tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley registered six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 34-3 loss to the Jets.

Riley posted a season-high six tackles despite logging only 28 defensive snaps, and he could continue to see an increased role if Lamarcus Joyner (hamstring) remains sidelined in Week 13 against the Chiefs.

Raiders' Curtis Riley: Will replace injured Abram
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is expected to start at free safety Sunday versus the Chiefs in place of Jonathan Abram (shoulder), Vic Tafur or The Athletic reports.

Abram is likely out for the season with a torn rotator cuff and labrum, so Riley will look to prove he can be the team's long-term solution. Riley started all 16 games for the Giants last year, posting 75 tackles, five pass breakups and four interceptions. The 27-year-old has IDP potential if he can keep up those rates.

Raiders' Curtis Riley: Signs one-year deal with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley is signing a one-year contract with the Raiders, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Riley went undrafted in 2015 and barely played until 2018, but he emerged as a 16-game starter for the Giants last season, piling up 75 tackles (63 solo), five passes defensed and four interceptions (including one for a TD). He was far less reliable than the stat line suggests, as Pro Football Focus charged him with the most missed tackles (23) of any defensive back in the NFL. The Raiders signed fellow safety Lamarcus Joyner to a much larger contract earlier this offseason, but it won't come as any surprise if he takes most of his snaps at slot cornerback, thus freeing up a spot for Riley as the free safety in nickel packages. From an IDP perspective, strong safety Karl Joseph offers the highest ceiling in the Oakland secondary.

Curtis Riley: Visits Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley visited with the Bengals on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Some teams have shown interest in Riley, though the young safety has been weighing all of his options before deciding on a final free agency destination. He's coming off a 2018 season that saw him record 75 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 16 games for the Giants. If he does sign with the Bengals he'll likely slot in as one of the team's starting safeties.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Strong third season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley made 75 tackles, five passes defended, four interceptions and one touchdown across 16 games with the Giants in 2018.

Riley appeared in only 11 games for the Titans across his first two NFL seasons, logging just 12 tackles during that stretch. He started at free safety for the Giants through the entire 2018 regular season and strongly exceeded expectations, notching the second-most interceptions on the team (four) after Alec Ogletree (five). Riley is set to become a restricted free agent this offseason.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Snags fourth interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley had six solo tackles and an interception in Sunday's 28-27 loss to the Colts.

Riley came up with the interception in the end zone early in the second quarter to put an end to the Colts' scoring threat. The 26-year-old has 74 tackles (62 solo), four interceptions and a touchdown while serving as the Giants' starting free safety this season.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (wrist) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Riley injured his wrist in Sunday's win against the Redskins, but it doesn't seem to be too severe because he practiced fully Wednesday. The Fresno State product was still able to log three tackles (two solo) and a pick-six over 58 defensive snaps Sunday against Washington.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Injures wrist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley suffered a wrist injury in Sunday's win over the Redskins, Jordan Raanan of reports.

It's unclear what the severity of Riley's injury is. He wasn't limited in the game due to the issue. He should be considered questionable for Week 15 for the time being, with his practice status later in the week serving as a better indication of his ability to play.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Notches interception in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley recorded four tackles (three solo), one pass defended and one interception during Sunday's 38-35 win over the Buccaneers.

Riley logged his second interception of the year during the Week 11 win. The 26-year-old continues to serve as an uncontested starter in the Giant's secondary, but his low weekly tackle volume makes him difficult to trust in IDP formats.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Full participant Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley (hamstring) was a full participant in Sunday's practice, Jordan Raanan of reports.

Riley suffered a hamstring injury nearly two weeks ago during practice, but it appears the long recovery time has helped him get back to full strength. Expect Riley, who was operating as the starting free safety in Sunday's practice, to be back for Friday's preseason game against the Lions.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Tweaks hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley "tweaked" his hamstring Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

While the extent of Riley's injury isn't clear, his absence isn't expected to be long-term. When healthy, the veteran corner is expected to compete for a rotational role in the Giants secondary.

Giants' Curtis Riley: Lands contract with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley signed a contract with the Giants on Friday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Riley appeared in 11 games for the Titans over the past two seasons but didn't log a snap on defense until 2017, when he racked up 12 tackles, two pass breakups and one interception in seven games. He should remain in a backup role with Giants and isn't on the IDP radar ahead of the 2018 campaign.

Titans' Curtis Riley: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Riley didn't figure to play much of a role on the defensive side, with Rashad Johnson and Kevin Byard ahead of him in the pecking order at free safety.

Titans' Curtis Riley: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riley was promoted to the Titans' active roster on Thursday.

Riley got the call up from the practice squad after Chance Warmack (finger) was placed on IR. The 2015 undrafted free agent spent last season on IR after suffering an ankle injury in August, ending his rookie season hardly before it get started. Riley has played both cornerback and safety in the Titans' defense but figures to contribute the most in special teams this season.
