Raiders Injuries

9 posts in this topic

Watson, Branch, and Ausberry did not practice today. Branch will probably play but the Raiders will again put out the waiver wire o line in week 2. The O line played ok last week and needs to improve if the Raiders want to win their home opener. Ausberry injury hurts but I like the stable of young TEs the Raiders have. Let's hope for a good week of practice and the team comes out fighting Sunday!

I think this will play into my preseason prediction of Rod Streater being a sleeper WR in the Raiders offense.  They are going to keep feeding him the ball and he has the hands and route running ability to take advantage of the talent vacuum that is the Oakland offense.

With a limited passer like Pryor, you often see them locking onto a single WR.  if that WR is Streater it could pay big dividends for his fantasy owners.

I'm re-watching the IND-OAK game and any injured Raiders defensive players likely got that way because of Vick Ballard. Dude was running hard!

Vick Ballard is swoopin' touches from my boy, Bradshaw. WTF, Jake? I drafted AB to at least be a viable Flex option.

I've gotta be honest, I avoided both in all of my drafts because no one knows how those two will be used this year. My guess would be whoever has the hot hand gets the majority of the carries and then Donald Brown just sits and makes 1st Round money while on the bench.

Jake, what's up? Totally agree with that in fantasy, can't have any back from Denver starting and a few other teams. However in a game situation it's much better to have a 2 headed monster back system because someone always has fresh legs!!! Unless its a machine like AP who is made of steal.

Hey what's goin' on Brandon. I totally agree. Especially with a guy like Bradshaw - he needs some rest. AP, not so much.
