S - FA
Week 17 Outlook
Safety Nate Allen picked off Drew Stanton in the Oakland Raiders' win over the Arizona Cardinals. Allen capitalised on an overthrown ball intended for John Brown before being tackled at the Arizona 10 yard line setting up another Oakland touchdown.
This is encouraging for a defense which many people are high on. Allen adds another option in an ever improving secondary and could well tempt drafters to take a shot on the new look Oakland defense. The Raiders' D/ST is a matchup based starter but the potential is there for them to be the difference for your team.
ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported that Nate Allen may have a torn ACL, which will surely end his season. He was just signed for four years at $23 million.
Both Raiders starting at Safety were injured on Sunday, leaving the defensive backfield reeling. The Raiders will look to fill the holes quickly. They are still a defense you should not be rostering.
Raiders safety Nate Allen left today's game with a knee injury and did not return.
If you were considering streaming the Raiders defense next week, look for a better option with or without Allen.
The Eagles have inactivated S Nate Allen (hamstring) for Week 9's game against the Texans.
Allen is injured, but he could be inactivated partially because he has played so terribly this season. Earl Wolff will get the start and try to breathe some new life into the Eagles' secondary.
