Jon Gruden resigns as head coach of the Raiders

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports Jon Gruden has resigned as head coach of the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact

The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Gruden used a racist trope in an email to describe NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith back in 2011. Since then, it was revealed that Gruden offended many others in his emails. He wound up lasting 3.5 years in his 10-year, $100 million coaching contract.

Las Vegas Raiders force huge fumble that leads to OT victory

The Raiders defense did an amazing job at containing Ravens on Monday, forcing two fumbles while sacking Lamar Jackson three times.

Fantasy Impact

The two fumbles also came at the courtesy of Lamar Jackson, who was simply trying to do too much at times. The Raiders took advantage of this and forced the Ravens to use their inexperienced running backs, refusing to let Jackson beat them. They get a much more favorable matchup next week against the Steelers, although it'd still be a risky play to start the Raiders defense.

Las Vegas Raiders D/ST forces three turnovers in Week 13

The Las Vegas Raiders D/ST had three sacks, recovered two fumbles, and added an interception in a 31-28 win over the Jets in Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

The Raiders D/ST stepped up after putting up a dud in Week 12, pressuring Sam Darnold into committing three turnovers on Sunday. Of course, the Jets will make any defense look good, so fantasy managers shouldn't consider streaming the Raiders defense for the remainder of the season.

Las Vegas Raiders D/ST forces one turnover in blowout loss

The Las Vegas Raiders D/ST had one interception and one sack in a 43-6 blowout loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

The Raiders defense intercepted and sacked Matt Ryan once but gave up three touchdowns in a blowout loss. If one team can help a defense find its way, it's the 0-11 Jets. Still, fantasy managers may want to be cautious with deploying the Raiders D/ST in Week 13 with some of their starting defensive players still recovering from COVID-19.

Las Vegas Raiders: eight defensive players placed on Reserve/COVID-19 list

Nearly all of the Las Vegas Raiders' defense has been placed on the league's Reserve/COVID-19 list, per Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Players placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list will be eligible to return for Week 11 if they continue testing negative throughout the week. Continue monitoring the Raiders' D/ST into the weekend as they will need every starter available for Sunday Night against the division rival Chiefs.
