Bowman led the team in tackles on Sunday and now his 52 tackles (31 solo) in six games with the Raiders. His fumble recovery came midway through the second quarter with the Giants driving downy into Oakland territory. He'll look to keep up the stellar play against the Chiefs this Sunday.
Smith started the week with a pair of limited practices, but his full participation Friday allowed him to avoid the questionable tag. The 29-year-old should retain his role as the Raiders' secondary tight end against the Bills.
Nelson has racked up 44 tackles through eight games this season, but the Raiders' starting free safety has yet to force a single turnover. As a result, his IDP value has been somewhat limited while Oakland has unexpectedly struggled to a 3-5 start. Nelson will look to snag the first interception of his 2017 campaign in Week 9 against the Dolphins, who plan to be led by quarterback Jay Cutler (ribs).
Richard has now logged no more than 13 offensive snaps in four consecutive games, remaining behind both starter Marshawn Lynch and fellow backup DeAndre Washington in the pecking order at running back. Richard's season averages of 4.5 yards per carry and 9.8 yards per reception are fairly healthy, but he figures to continue seeing limited opportunities out of the backfield moving forward.
Edwards barely missed more than a series, and he'll come back in to rotate defensive snaps with Denico Autry.
Mack landed a heavy hit on Geno Smith, forcing a fumble, which the All-Pro also recovered. It was a pivotal play that came with a little over 30 seconds left until halftime as the Giants were driving inside Oakland's red zone. Mack now has a sack in each of the past three games and is a key reason for the Raiders' defensive turnaround the past couple of weeks.
Hamilton had arthroscopic knee surgery on a torn meniscus a little over a month ago, but he appears to be nearing a return. If the Raiders choose to move him to the active roster, he will be eligible to return for the Week 14 matchup with the Chiefs. Look for more updates on his status to come over the next couple of weeks.
He's played in every game this season and won't be breaking that streak in Week 9. With Cory James and Marquel Lee returning from knee injuries, the rookie will slide back into a reserve/special teams role.
Ward has only suited up three times this season, playing just 35 defensive snaps and posting no notable stat line. The second-year pro is a depth defensive lineman anyway, so his absence doesn't shake up the Raiders' defense.
McDonald played 67 defensive snaps for the second consecutive week, as injuries to David Amerson (foot) and Gareon Conley (shin) have thinned the Raiders' secondary. They'll have a chance to further their recoveries during the team's upcoming bye, but McDonald could see an increased role in Week 11 against Tom Brady and the Patriots.
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.
This will be Amerson's fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, but he's been limited in practice the last two weeks, so it seems he may be trending in the right direction. Sean Smith and Dexter McDonald will both play extra defensive snaps Sunday.
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 entered Sunday's contest harnessing higher expectations than usual with starting wide receivers Amari Cooper (concussion/ankle) and Michael Crabtree (suspension) both sidelined, but the veteran tight end failed to capitalize against a vulnerable Giants defense as he caught just 20 percent of his targets from quarterback Derek Carr. Cook was evaluated for a brief moment in the medical tent on the Raiders' sideline, but was still able to log 50 out of a possible 65 offensive snaps. Fellow tight end Clive Walford racked up four catches on as many targets for 57 yards after logging just three total catches throughout the team's first 11 games of the season, resulting in a somewhat unexpected setback to Cook's potential fantasy value. Walford's breakout performance shouldn't impact Cook's normal role as the clear-cut starter at tight end moving forward, but likely having both Cooper and Crabtree back in the lineup could translate to a slightly lesser target share for Cook in Week 14 against the Chiefs.
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's target total marked a season best in his return from a one-game suspension, while fellow starting wide receiver Amari Cooper missed a majority of the contest due to an aggravated left ankle injury. Crabtree's increased involvement didn't translate to fantasy prosperity, however, as he averaged just 4.6 yards per target and etched a long reception of 13 yards. If Cooper is forced to miss additional time, Crabtree could be in line for a similar level of volume in Week 15 against the Cowboys, especially if the Raiders fall behind early again.
Tavecchio was perfect in Sunday's victory, which brought him to 67 points on the season.
Lynch notched just eight touches as the Raiders played from behind for a majority of Sunday's contest, while quarterback Derek Carr shouldered the load with 41 passing attempts. Despite his limited volume, Lynch managed to find the end zone on a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, also averaging a healthy 8.7 yards per carry on his seven rushing attempts. He's now scored five touchdowns in Oakland's past five games, so he'll look to maintain the momentum in Week 15 against the Cowboys.
Conley hasn't played since Week 3 in Washington and there remains no clear timetable for his return. The rookie first-round pick hasn't played enough to truly show what he brings to the table or what the Raiders are missing with him on the sideline.
Jackson was a limited participant in practice this week but will attempt to play against the Giants. Jon Feliciano would likely step in if Jackson is forced to miss any snaps Sunday.
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 was limited Thursday and Friday, but he'll be able to use his run-blocking abilities Sunday. The fullback is rarely given the ball, though, with no more than five touches in a game this season.
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.
The decision to place Latham on waivers came after the reinstatement of Michael Crabtree from his suspension. Latham has been largely inactive this season due to a variety of reasons, including suspensions and injuries. His future in the NFL remains widely uncertain at the present time.
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.
Washington failed to record a single reception for the first time since Week 4 and rushed for a dismal 2.7 yards per carry against the Giants, but he notched his second rushing touchdown of the season to salvage any fantasy relevance. Washington also out-paced fellow backup Jalen Richard in terms of touches, as the latter logged just one carry for four yards to go along with a five-yard reception.
Carr failed to take advantage of Kansas City's vulnerable pass defense as the fourth-year quarterback averaged just 5.1 yards per attempt and struggled with his accuracy. The Raiders were without starting wide receiver Amari Cooper (ankle) for a majority of the game, leading to a season-high 13 targets for Michael Crabtree as he hauled in seven passes. Playing from behind throughout the entire contest, Oakland rushed just 11 times while Carr was asked to handle much of the load on offense. Other than a 29-yard touchdown strike to tight end Jared Cook during garbage time in the fourth quarter, Carr would probably like to forget about this performance heading into his Week 15 matchup against the Cowboys on Sunday night.
Having used one of their designated-to-return spots to activate rookie safety Obi Melifonwu from injured reserve Nov. 4, the Raiders tabbed Antonio Hamilton (knee) for the other Tuesday. Janikowski will thus remain on IR for the rest of the 2017 season as he recovers from an injured disc in his back. In his absence, Giorgio Tavecchio will handle kicking duties for the final five games of the campaign.
Kirkland suffered an unspecified knee injury in the preseason opener and wasn't in line to be available for the next few weeks.
The Raiders were thin at wide receiver in Week 13, as usual starters Amari Cooper (concussion/ankle) and Michael Crabtree (suspension) were kept to the sideline, leaving the door open for Holton to lead the way in targets from quarterback Derek Carr. Holton also scored his third touchdown of the season on a nine-yard reception in the fourth quarter, essentially sealing the game for Oakland as they went on to win by seven. Crabtree is slated to return in Week 14, while Cooper has a good chance of making his comeback as well, so Holton could be forced to return to his original role as the No. 5 option on the depth chart at wide receiver.
Joseph was limited in practice all week but will suit up for Sunday night's game in Miami. He will look to cause disruption for Jay Cutler and the Dolphins' offense.
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.
The Raiders have given up 400 yards of total offense only three times this season, and two of those times James was inactive. The second-year pro is a stud when he's on the field, accruing 56 tackles (42 solo) through 10 games, and he left early in three of those contests. Nicholas Morrow is likely to take over at weak-side linebacker.
Autry avoided missing his first game since the 2015 season. The fourth-year pro has six tackles (five solo) and three sacks in his last two contests, but the production seems sporadic as he rotates defensive snaps with Mario Edwards.
Lee is ready to return after missing the Raiders' last three games. With Cory James also returning from his own knee injury, the rookie is probably ticketed for a reserve role.
Oakland had previously promoted Hood to the active roster during Marshawn Lynch's (suspension) absence for the Week 8 win over the Chiefs, waiving the rookie shortly after the contest. Now back with the organization, Hood will likely remain on the practice squad unless one of Lynch or fellow running backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington are forced to miss action down the road.
The undrafted rookie out of USC will make his NFL debut this Sunday against the Giants after spending the preseason with Raiders before being signed to the practice squad prior to Week 1. Don't expect Whitney to see many offensive reps, as he will be the fifth wideout on the depth chart -- but with Michael Crabtree suspended and Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) not at full strength, Whitney could get an opportunity at some point during the contest.
Newhouse will return to his role as Oakland's starting right tackle.
Mitchel is heading into his third NFL season and has yet to play a regular-season snap. When he gets healthy, he'll likely have a chance to sign onto a practice squad elsewhere.
Cooper's potential availability for the remainder of Sunday's game is still uncertain, but the starting wide receiver was seen alone on the bench without his helmet prior to halftime. If Cooper is ultimately held out -- which may be the likely scenario at this point -- Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson could be in line for additional targets from quarterback Derek Carr.
Walford is listed as the No. 3 tight end in Oakland, but he posted four receptions and 57 yards against the Giants in Week 13. The third-year pro will have to clear the league's concussion protocol before he can get back on the game field.
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.
Irvin turned in one of the better performances of his 2017 campaign in Week 13 against the Giants, racking up a season-high eight tackles to go along with his third forced in four games. He'll look to maintain the momentum in Week 14 against a Chiefs offense that just put up 31 points against the Jets behind four passing touchdowns from quarterback Alex Smith.
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.
Meanwhile, Michael Crabtree is back from a one-game suspension and Amari Cooper (ankle) is listed as active as well, so while Patterson could still factor in some on Sunday, his path to targets is less clear than it was last weekend, when both Cooper and Crabtree were unavailable.
Feliciano's absence in Week 14 leaves the Raiders without a ton of depth on the offensive line, but all five starters head into the matchup at full health. Feliciano will need to clear the league's concussion protocol before potentially returning in Week 15 against the Cowboys.
Roberts led the Raiders in receptions while usual starters Amari Cooper (concussion, ankle) and Michael Crabtree (suspension) were sidelined, but the slot receiver remains without a 50-yard performance through 11 games played this season. He's also been held out of the end zone since Week 1, while the expected returns of both Cooper and Crabtree in Week 14 don't bode well for Roberts' fantasy ceiling.
