Raiders' Karl Joseph: Notches 79 tackles in 15 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joseph notched 79 tackles (58 solo), one sack, four passes defensed, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in 15 games during the 2017 regular season.

Joseph, a 2016 first-round selection, played nearly 300 more snaps during his second season in the league after appearing in 12 contests as a rookie. The Raiders' starting strong safety didn't put up any eye-catching numbers in 2017, but likely stabilized his role in the secondary with two years remaining on his rookie contract. A minor hamstring injury during Week 17's loss to the Chargers ended Joseph's campaign a bit early, but the issue shouldn't linger into the offseason.

Raiders' TJ Carrie: Logs 84 tackles in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carrie racked up 84 tackles (70 solo), nine passes defensed and two fumble recoveries in 16 games during the 2017 regular season.

Carrie played a career-high 1,024 defensive snaps in 2017 as he served as a reliable starter at cornerback for the Raiders. He failed to force a turnover in 16 contests, but his 84 tackles were 32 more than his previous best in a single season. The 27-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, but incoming head coach Jon Gruden could make an effort to re-sign the cornerback after a decent 2017 campaign compared to the rest of the team's uninspiring secondary.

Raiders' Johnny Holton: Trio of scores in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holton hauled in nine passes (on 18 targets) for 218 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games during his 2017 campaign.

Holton showed off his big-play ability as he notched three 40-plus yard receptions and averaged one score per six targets throughout the 2017 season. His fantasy value was severely limited due to a lack of volume, however, as the second-year receiver failed to move above Seth Roberts or Cordarrelle Patterson on the depth chart behind starters Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Unfortunately for Holton, he also struggled with ball-security issues and drops, so it could be tough for the 26-year-old to see an increased role in 2018 before becoming a restricted free agent in 2019.

Raiders' Reggie Nelson: Raiders' tackle leader in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson racked up 89 tackles (60 solo), five passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one interception in 16 games during his 2017 campaign.

Nelson tied starting middle linebacker NaVorro Bowman for the Raiders' team lead in tackles with 89, though the former appeared in six more games with Oakland throughout the 2017 regular season. Nelson, who will turn 35 years old in September of 2018, is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. There's a solid chance the Raiders elect to move on from the aging veteran as his abilities in pass coverage continue to regress.

Raiders' Bruce Irvin: Logs eight sacks in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Irvin finished his 2017 campaign with 58 tackles, eight sacks, three passes defensed and four forced fumbles in 16 games.

Irvin, who turned 30 years old in November, has notched an impressive 10 total forced fumbles in two seasons with the Raiders. His eight sacks in 2017 were the most in a season for Irvin since his rookie campaign with Seattle in 2012. The outside linebacker has two years remaining on his contract with the Raiders, and the team plans to have one of its leading edge rushers back in 2018.
