Oakland D/ST produces three sacks in win over Green Bay

The Oakland Raiders D/ST allowed 287 yards and posted three sacks and one interception in a 22-21 preseason win over Green Bay Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

This game has little value for fantasy as both teams rested their starters over safety concerns with the field in Winnipeg Thursday night. Fantasy owners should steer clear of Oakland and pursue more talented units for fantasy this season.

Oakland D/ST harasses Kyler Murray in win

The Oakland Raiders D/ST allowed 374 yards and posted three sacks in a 33-26 preseason win over Arizona Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Oakland frustrated Kyler Murray early with heavy pressure and logged a pair of sacks of the rookie. This front looked much improved when the starters were playing, but is still best avoided in fantasy until we see more.

Oakland D/ST limits Rams in win

The Oakland Raiders D/ST allowed 190 yards and had one sack in a 14-3 preseason win over the Rams Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact

This was a battle of reserves with Oakland limiting yardage but failing to produce turnovers or pressure the quarterback. Avoid this unit in fantasy for the coming season.

Raiders hire Mike Mayock as GM

The Raiders have hired Mike Mayock to be their next GM.

Fantasy Impact

Mayock has become known for his time as an NFL Draft analyst on television. He'll join Jon Gruden, who of course also spent significant time in front of a camera prior to returning to coaching in 2018. This franchise returned to joke status this season, but Mayock and Gruden will try to turn it around in 2019. They have plenty of draft capital and salary cap space to make major changes.

Oakland D/ST decimated by Kansas City

The Oakland Raiders D/ST allowed 409 yards and had one interception in a 35-3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

This unit was bad all season and this week was no different. Barring major upgrades in the offseason, owners should stay away.
