Fantasy Impact: Jacobs was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries and then to Clark County Detention Center where he was booked for a DUI. Jacobs has since been released from custody and has a court appearance on March 8th.


WR Nelson Agholor caught one pass for 57 yards in the Raiders' 32-31 win over the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Agholor was a revelation for the Raiders, putting up 48 receptions with a career-high 896 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in his first season. He enjoyed a strong comeback campaign and was the best actual receiver for the Raiders across 16 games. He performed as a WR2 from Week 4 on, though he was often touchdown-dependent. He'll be worth a late-round pick next season given his rapport with Derek Carr and comfortability in the Raiders' offense.

Raiders TE Darren Waller delivered nine receptions for 117 yards and a TD in the Raiders' 32-31 win over the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Waller finishes as the number overall TE in fantasy after dominating this season with 107 receptions for 1,196 yards and nine touchdowns across 16 games. He's easily one of the best TE's and receivers in the game and is the primary threat and target hog of the Raiders' passing game. He should be one of the first three tight-ends off the board next season.

Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 24-of-48 passes for 371 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Raiders' 32-31 win over the Broncos in Week 17.

Fantasy Impact: Carr led the Raiders to an 8-8 record and enjoyed a career-high 4,103 passing yards with 30 TDs (27 passing, three rushing), seven interceptions, and three fumbles across 16 games this season. He has two years left on his contract, so his status as the starting quarterback remains intact for now. He'll be a middle-of-the-pack QB in 2021 and is only worthy of scooping up if you're streaming a QB.

Fantasy Impact: Brown will wind up missing 11 games this season. He has played in just 16-of-32 games since signing with the Raiders prior to 2019. “Very disappointing. We paid him to be the LeBron James of right tackles and he has had a lot of adversity,” coach Jon Gruden said on Friday. His absence will be a downgrade for the Raiders' offense as a whole.

Fantasy Impact: Ruggs didn't play in Week 15 but he'll return for Saturday's showdown with the Dolphins. It's a brutal matchup for a player who was already struggling to produce consistent fantasy results. Consider the rookie speedster a WR4 for the fantasy finals.

Raiders K Daniel Carlson hit two field goals and made three extra-point attempts in the Raiders' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Both of Carlson's field goals came from under 30 yards, so he didn't come through for fantasy managers as much as they had hoped. Still, Carlson is third in the NFL with 28 FGM and fourth with 41 XPs through 15 weeks this season.

Raiders QB Marcus Mariota came in Derek Carr after he left with a groin injury and completed 17-of-28 passes for 226 yards along with one touchdown and one interception in the Raiders' 30-27 loss to the Chargers. He also added 88 rushing yards and an additional rushing touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Mariota was dynamic, using his legs to extend plays and did a good job pushing the ball down the field and put the Raiders in positions to score. Derek Carr's groin injury looked significant enough to miss a game, and if that were to happen, Mariota is worth a stream for any managers still alive after the semi-finals or playing DFS in Week 16.

Raiders RB Devontae Booker ran for 12 yards on three carries in the Raiders' 30-27 loss to the Chargers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Booker didn't have a chance to get anything going on Thursday night. Josh Jacobs ate up 81% of the Raiders' carries, and Booker was not used in the passing game. He'll remain a decent handcuff for the oft-injured Jacobs but should not be plugged into any lineups heading into Week 16.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow brought in one pass for four receiving yards in the Raiders' 30-27 loss to the Chargers in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: Renfrow tweaked his neck on a punt return but was able to walk it off. However, he wasn't much of a factor in the Mariota-led passing attack, only seeing two targets the entire game. Renfrow can't be trusted in redraft leagues and should be left on benches in dynasty formats as well.

Fantasy Impact: The first-round rookie is missing his second straight game. Arnette is one of four notable defensive players on the Raiders to be missing this one.

Raiders safety Jonathan Abram (concussion, knee) won't play in Thursday's Week 15 game against the Chargers. (Source: Raiders.com)

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy managers who play in IDP leagues will want to be sure to remove Abram from their lineups. The hard-hitting safety has totaled 52 tackles and two interceptions this year.

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.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Raiders pass rusher Clelin Ferrell (reserve/COVID-19) has a "chance" to play in Week 12. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

The Raiders have placed DE Takkarist McKinley on IR with a groin injury. (Source: Aaron Wilson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McKinley has made his rounds this season. He was released by the Falcons, before being claimed by the Bengals, 49ers, and now Raiders. The former first-round pick may have finally found a new home, as it seems Las Vegas is willing to take a chance and wait on the talented young DE.

Raiders OL Richie Incognito is set to undergo season-ending foot surgery. (Source: Vic Tafur on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Las Vegas has had one of the best offensive lines in football this season, but this loss hurts. The 37-year-old is under contract for $6.35 million in 2021. It'll be interesting to see if the Raiders move on from him as there would be no dead money against the cap if they choose to do so. Ultimately, consider this is a slight downgrade for Josh Jacobs.

WR Bryan Edwards (foot/ankle) won’t carry an injury designation into Sunday’s Week 9 contest against the Chargers. (Source: Levi Damien on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Edwards will return to action for the first time since Week 3. He was a practice participant in practice this week and will play in Sunday’s game against the Chargers. Edwards is fourth on the WR depth chart behind Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor. The Raiders’ rookie wideout is only worth rostering in dynasty league formats.

Raiders' starting LT Kolton Miller did not practice on Friday with an ankle injury. (Source: Paul Gutierrez on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Miller hasn't practiced all week, which doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up this Sunday vs. the Chargers. Miller has been an iron man so far in his career with the Raiders. He started 97% of offensive snaps as a rookie in 2018, and 100% of snaps 2019-present. QB Derek Carr can thank his lucky stars that Chargers star DE Joey Bosa is doubtful with a concussion.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Jason Witten caught 2-of-2 targets for 21 yards in a Week 8 win over the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Impact: The future Hall-of-Famer reached a new season-high with 21 receiving yards - which is a good indication for fantasy managers to keep him on waivers. Witten would only become fantasy relevant if there was an injury to Darren Waller as he is primarily used as a blocking TE in the Raiders offensive scheme.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Raiders' offensive line, outside of RT Trent Brown, is expected to play in Week 7. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Both the Raiders and Buccaneers produced negative COVID-19 tests this morning, which means Las Vegas offensive linemen that include Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson, and Gabe Jackson are all in line to play against Tampa Bay. Trent Brown is the only regular starter sidelined for Week 7. For Josh Jacobs and Derek Carr, this is terrific news as the Buccaneers bring one of the league's toughest defenses, especially against the run.
