Smith started the week not practicing but was a full participant Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old should resume his role as the Raiders' secondary tight end behind Jared Cook.
Nelson was the second-leading tackler for the Raiders on Sunday, while fellow safety Karl Joseph led the way with nine. Oakland's secondary, which disappointed in 2016, played well enough in Week 1 to limit Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota to no completion longer than 24 yards and zero passing touchdowns. Nelson and crew have a much easier matchup in Week 2 against a lousy Jets offense led by QB Josh McCown.
Richard was unable to capitalize on fellow backup DeAndre Washington's (hamstring) lack of involvement Sunday, as the latter appeared on just five offensive snaps while Richard accounted for 17 of his own. Veteran Marshawn Lynch once again received a bulk of the carries out of the Raiders' backfield, while receiver Cordarrelle Patterson hit pay dirt on a 47-yard run in the fourth quarter. Richard's limited opportunities severely impact any chance he owns at consistent fantasy production, and he also muffed a punt during Oakland's fourth consecutive loss.
Edwards did not participate in practice on Wednesday due to a back injury. However, it appears it wasn't too serious, as the defensive end was back out on the field just a day later. Barring any setbacks in Friday's session, the third-year pro should be all clear for Sunday's tilt with the Ravens.
Mack is now averaging one sack per game through the first four weeks of the regular season, but the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year has yet to force a turnover. He'll look to add to his sack total in Week 5 against the Ravens, who rank near the middle of the pack in terms of sacks allowed.
Hamilton sustained the injury against the Ravens last Sunday on a kickoff and is now slated to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on a torn meniscus. Linebacker Shilique Calhoun takes his spot on the 53-man roster as the Raiders' cornerbacks continue to be plagued by injury.
Ward underwent minor foot surgery in June, but has been out of a walking boot since early August. The 23-year-old had an up-and-down rookie season in 2016 and will likely play a backup role in the Raiders' defensive-line rotation to start the upcoming campaign.
Luani is a former soccer player who showed a bit of a center fielder skill set at Washington State, intercepting four passes each of the last two years. Oakland is set at safety, so he'll try to make a special teams impact.
Vanderdoes has been listed as a starter on the unofficial depth chart since day one. The 2017 third-round pick was dealing with a minor knee injury last week, but played in the Raiders' first preseason game against the Cardinals and recorded one tackle.
Amerson will avoid missing his second consecutive game, which is important for a Raiders defense that doesn't have much offensive support. Amerson has 11 tackles (eight solo) and four pass breakups in four games this season.
Calhoun has been on the Raiders' practice squad since being waived at the end of the preseason. The 25-year-old could potentially see more defensive opportunities with Cory James (knee) questionable for Sunday and Marquel Lee out with an ankle injury.
Cook tied his season-low in receiving yards during Week 5's loss but has yet to see less than five targets in a game throughout his 2017 campaign. His production has still been modest with 19 receptions for 195 yards and one touchdown through five contests. Cook will look to find the end zone for the second time this year in Week 6 against the Chargers, when quarterback Derek Carr (back) is expected to return from injury.
Adams was let go in order to make room on the roster for incoming free agent linebacker NaVorro Bowman. The 25-year-old recorded 18 tackles (11 solo) through six games with the team.
Cook faced an uphill battle for the primary backup spot behind Derek Carr throughout the offseason, and the Raiders have elected to dress EJ Manuel in Week 1. Cook's inexperience certainly played a factor in the decision, while Manuel appeared in 28 games through four seasons with the Bills before heading to Oakland.
Smith was able to log two full practice sessions and was trending towards playing in Sunday's game all week. He will draw the start at cornerback opposite T.J. Carrie.
Brown, Chekwa and Moore had all been ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Carrie and Watson entered the contest listed as questionable. Carrie is dealing with an ankle injury. Watson has foot and ankle issues. Bergstrom and McGee are healthy scratches.
Crabtree has emerged as quarterback Derek Carr's go-to receiver during Amari Cooper's slump of a season thus far, as the former has caught 25 passes and five touchdowns through five games played. Crabtree's first-quarter score against the Chargers put the Raiders on top early, but Oakland's aerial attack remained relatively quiet throughout the remainder of the contest. Crabtree will look to post the sixth touchdown of his 2017 campaign on Thursday against the Chiefs.
Tavecchio had been perfect on both field goals and extra points throughout the first five games of his NFL career, but a high snap during Sunday's tilt resulted in his first missed extra-point attempt during a crucial portion of the contest. Oakland's one-point loss exaggerates the disappointment stemming from Tavecchio's missed PAT attempt, but the kicker will look to bounce back on Thursday against the Chiefs. The rookie's fantasy value has taken a hit since Week 2 as the Raiders have failed to score more than 17 points throughout their past four games.
Lynch posted a season-best 4.8 yards per carry during the Raiders' Week 6 loss, but his fantasy production was limited as he failed to find the end zone. The veteran rusher again out-touched Jalen Richard, Cordarrelle Patterson and DeAndre Washington, solidifying his status as the No. 1 option out of Oakland's backfield. Lynch's next matchup comes against a Kansas City unit that ranks in the bottom half of the league in terms of run defense, having just given up 179 yards on 32 carries to the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell.
Conley had recently practiced on a limited basis, but it appears as though the rookie isn't close to returning to the field at full capacity, as coach Jack Del Rio had no updates on the defensive back's timetable this week. Dexter McDonald and T.J. Carrie are in line for increased roles in the team's secondary as long as Conley is out.
Jackson has been a consistent force along the offensive line for Oakland since being drafted by the team in 2014. He's started in 44 games for the team over his three seasons, including all 16 games each of the past two seasons. His extension will keep him under contract with the team through the 2022 season.
Smith remains subject to the league's drug program, but will be reinstated given he stays on the right path throughout the coming months. He'll certainly add another pass-rushing presence for the Raiders' defense, while defensive end Khalil Mack was recently named 2016's defensive player of the year.
Olawale apparently suffered the concussion in Week 5's loss to the Ravens and did not practice this week. The 28-year-old must clear the league's concussion protocol before he is able to return to the field.
The foot injury limited McGill's participation during Wednesday's practice, but he was upgraded to a full participant Thursday and Friday and looks like he'll be an option for the Raiders in Week 5. McGill has appeared in one game this season -- the team's Week 3 loss to the Redskins -- logging all 27 of his snaps on special teams.
Latham, a reserve defensive tackle, won't be eligible to play again until the Raiders' date with the Patriots on Nov. 11. Since Treyvon Hester remains as the only backup to starters Justin Ellis and Eddie Vanderdoes, it wouldn't be much of a surprise if Oakland adds another defensive lineman for depth in the near future.
Ellis was presented with many opportunities to stop the Saints' rushing attack, as they ran the ball just 22 times throughout the entire game. He should have a bigger role Week 2 against running back Devonta Freeman and the Falcons.
With both Marshawn Lynch and Jalen Richard also in the Raiders' backfield mix, Washington's path to making a fantasy splash in Week 6 is somewhat muddled, but his return to action Sunday is nonetheless a boost to the Raiders' depth at running back.
Carr completed 21 of 30 passes, but for only 171 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. He did have gains of 31 and 19 yards -- both to Amari Cooper -- wiped out by penalties, but Carr's only official completion of more than 15 yards was a 23-yard catch-and-run touchdown from Michael Crabtree. While the Raiders figure to be a bit more aggressive against the Chiefs on Thursday, the team's offensive problems don't seem to be as simple as not attempting enough passes downfield. Cooper's nightmare season is the obvious issue, but the team also hasn't gotten much from Marshawn Lynch, who's averaging 3.7 yards per carry and has yet to break off a run of more than 15 yards. Carr may have to put the team on his (injured) back in order to end the four-game losing streak Thursday.
Janikowski was surprisingly placed on injured reserve Saturday after initially being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. The possibility that he could return is a plus for the Raiders, though with only two opportunities to use the IR-return designation, it's unclear if they would use it on him.
Kirkland suffered an unspecified knee injury in the preseason opener and wasn't in line to be available for the next few weeks.
Holton broke free for a 64-yard touchdown reception during Week 4's loss to the Broncos, but reverted to a heavily reduced role on Sunday when Michael Crabtree (chest) returned to the lineup. Holton has seen just one target all season and figures to continue experiencing a dismal level of volume in Week 6 against the Chargers.
Joseph's sack, forced fumble and fumble recovery came on the same play when he rocked opposing quarterback Josh McCown on a first-and-10 early in the fourth quarter. He only saw 56 snaps, because the Raiders controlled the time of possession in the game. The 24-year-old picked up where he left off after leading the team in tackles in Week 1 and will look to stay hot Sunday against the Redskins.
If Penn plays well in 2017, he'll be guaranteed an average of $10 million through 2019. The Pro Bowl tackle will be 36 years old when his contract expires, so the Raiders are taking a risk that Penn's health won't waver. He's shown he's a key piece of Oakland's offensive front, though, as he only allowed one sack in 2016.
Melifonwu was placed on injured reserve Tuesday after undergoing surgery for an undisclosed knee injury. The current expectation is that he will return when eligible, but that will ultimately be determined by whether the Raiders need to use their two alloted IR returns on other players.
James is second on the team with 34 tackles (23 solo), so his return will be important against a strong Chargers running game that features Melvin Gordon. Due to his workhorse role of playing almost every down, James is a solid IDP option in almost every format.
Autry played significant snaps for the Raiders in 2016 and racked up 2.5 sacks in the process. However, he could be in store for a major decrease in playing time if Mario Edwards is able to stay healthy this upcoming season.
Lee exited Sunday's loss to the Ravens with the injury and was unable to practice this week. The 21-year-old was carted off the sideline Sunday so his status for this week was never overly optimistic, and there still is no clear timetable for his return.
Hood found himself trapped behind the likes of Marshawn Lynch, DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard on cut day. A 2017 seventh-rounder, Hood might have trouble finding a new home given his inexperience at the professional level.
Cooper tied his season high in catches with five during the Raiders' Week 6 loss, but he averaged just 5.6 yards per reception and has failed to find the end zone since Week 1. Fellow receiver MIchael Crabtree vultured his fifth touchdown of the season on Sunday, continuing his run as Oakland's safer fantasy option in the passing game. Cooper will look to end his slump Thursday versus the Chiefs, who just gave up 155 yards and a touchdown on eight receptions to the Steelers' Antonio Brown.
Walford, who was on the field for just five offensive snaps in Week 1, saw seven more snaps (12) in Week 2 against a struggling Jets defense while hauling in his first catch of the season. With Michael Crabtree, Amari Cooper and Jared Cook acquiring a majority of the targets from quarterback Derek Carr, Walford's role in the Raiders' aerial attack figures to remain limited in Week 3 against the Redskins.
Ware appears to have made a full recovery from his concussion symptoms and is back at practice. He should be a full participant through the rest of preseason barring any setbacks.
Usual starter Derek Carr suffered a transverse process fracture in his back last week, and he's inactive Sunday. Carr is targeting a Week 6 return to action, so this could be a one-week assignment for Manuel. He's a speculative fantasy play in Week 5, but working in his favor is that the Raiders will welcome starting wideout Michael Crabtree back to their lineup after he missed last Sunday's contest with a chest injury.
McCray, who spent his first three seasons with the Jaguars, joined the Seahawks during training camp. He ultimately was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed issue and subsequently reached an injury settlement with the club. He now is seemingly back to full health and should help provide depth in the Raiders' secondary.
Irvin has now made two sacks throughout Oakland's past three games after failing to reach the quarterback until Week 4 of the regular season. Irvin's role on defense likely won't be impacted much by Monday's signing of former 49er NaVorro Bowman as the Raiders look for a boost during what has become a four-game skid.
Woodson-Luster, an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas State, originally signed with the Raiders in May, but didn't survive roster cuts this past weekend. However, the team has since placed two players on injured reserve, creating an opening for Woodson-Luster to join the 53-man roster.
Patterson provided the Raiders with their longest play of the day as he broke free for a 47-yard touchdown run on a sweep play in the fourth quarter. The speedster's versatility hasn't translated to much volume through the air, however, accumulating just 53 receiving yards on 10 catches through six games. He also continues to see significantly less offensive snaps than fellow wideouts Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Seth Roberts, further limiting his potential fantasy upside.
Feliciano was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to open up training camp after suffering a knee injury during OTAs, but it now appears he's mostly put it behind him. Feliciano is expected to serve as the team's backup center this season.
Roberts finished as the Raiders' second-leading receiver in terms of yardage during their Week 6 loss, but such a feat remained unimpressive as quarterback Derek Carr passed for just 171 yards total. The third-year wideout has hauled in 14 receptions for 157 yards and a touchdown through six games, lacking much fantasy relevance with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree relatively healthy.
