DE - LV
Week 8 Outlook
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Raiders pass rusher Clelin Ferrell (reserve/COVID-19) has a "chance" to play in Week 12.
Ferrell was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 earlier this week, giving him a shot to return to the field following a one-game absence. However, because he has not practiced in the past two weeks while just recently being activated on Friday, the Raiders will take those factors into consideration when making a final decision on Ferrell's playing status against the Falcons. Ferrell has yet to record a sack in his year-two as a pro.
DE Clelin Ferrell is adding weight and is up to 275 pounds this off-season.
Ferrell gained 13 pounds this off-season and currently is up to 275 pounds. “He’s lean and mean and running pretty good,” Raiders' DL Coach Mark Hall said in a phone interview Wednesday. “We had a really good off-season and I know he can’t wait to get to Las Vegas and put that product on the field.” The former 2019 No.4 overall pick racked up 38 tackles and 4.5 sacks and five defended passes across 15 games last season. “You probably won’t even recognize me," said Ferrell. The 23-year-old is locked in as the Raiders' starting LDE and could be on the fantasy radar in IDP-league formats.
Clelin Ferrell posted five solo tackles, three assisted tackles, two TFLs, 2.5 sacks, three QB hits, and one pass defended, as the Raiders topped the Chargers, 26-24.
Ferrell produced his best game as a professional in primetime, accumulating more sacks tonight than he has all season. The fourth overall pick from the 2019 draft has been pretty quiet all season, but the Raiders are hoping he can sustain this success into next week's matchup against the Bengals.
The Oakland Raiders have selected defensive end Clelin Ferrell with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
In a surprise move, the Oakland Raiders selected Clelin Ferrell at fourth overall. While he is one of the best edge rushers in the draft, he was not on the radar this high for most. Ferrell fills an glaring need for the Raiders and projects as an immediate starter. He has enough talent to become an IDP force as a rookie.
