Nick Kwiatkoski agrees to reworked contract with Raiders

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Raiders and LB Nick Kwiatkoski agree to a restructured contract that will save the team $2.7 million against the cap.

Fantasy Impact

Another move for the Raiders. After releasing four veteran starters from last season, the Raiders agreed to rework the contract of Kwiatkoski, the move will help save the team a veteran starter and $2.7 million against the cap. The LB recorded 81 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble, and one interception in 12 games started last season.

Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral) ruled out for Week 2

Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski has been ruled out for Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

This was expected, but it is still a big loss for the Raiders linebacker corps. Raekwon McMillan, recently acquired from the Miami Dolphins, is expected to see the most snaps as his replacement.

Nick Kwiatkoski being signed by Raiders

Nick Kwiatkoski tweeted a photo of the new Las Vegas stadium and Ian Rapoport confirmed that he will be playing for the Raiders next season.

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski has been a Chicago fan-favorite for years and it was assumed that they wouldn't have the assets to retain him this season. Vontaze Burfict only played four games last season before suffering a suspension through the end of the year and his future with the team is up in the air. He has vowed to come back and change the way he plays, but the Raiders' investment in Kwiatkoski shows that they may be ready to move on. If so, Kwiatkoski would become a run-stuffing starting middle linebacker and would have the ability to launch himself into fantasy relevance. Keep an eye on the Raiders' camp to see how this depth chart will shake out. Kwiatkoski's contract is 3 years/$21M with $13.5M guaranteed.

Nick Kwiatkoski leads all Bears with eight tackles

Nick Kwiatkoski ended Sunday’s 21-19 win over the Vikings with eight tackles (six solo).

Fantasy Impact

If Kwiatkoski is given a starting gig next season he is worth rostering in dynasty leagues. He finished the regular season with 68 tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and an interception.

Nick Kwiatkoski racked up five total tackles and one sack during Sunday’s 21-13 loss to the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Kwiatkoski has 50 total tackles, three sacks, one forced fumble, and an interception through Week 15. He should be added in all leagues especially dynasty formats and a low-end LB1.
