  1. FA 2020

    saw Deon Cain got waived. I’d be interested. He was always getting pumped up there, just never materialized. He could be worth a look, IMO.
  2. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Anyone like Jalen Reagor? Just turned on TCU game to check him out.
  3. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Collin Johnson having a reallllly disappointing night. These LSU CBs are legit.
  4. 2020 NFL Draft Thread

    Who y’all watching in this Texas/LSU game? Delpit and the LSU secondary as a whole, of course, but anyone else? Edit: Delpit (autocorrect)
  5. Fantasy Thread

    Didn't get any Raiders in my weekend draft, but Tuesday night I ended up with Jacobs in the 4th and Tyrell Williams in the 13th. That Williams value was just sweet.
  6. Fantasy Thread

    I’m targeting Kirk Cousins as my late round QB. Should be able to snag him right before kicker/D. I only carry one TE, so depending on draft position, I’ll either target OJ Howard/Henry in those 5/6 rounds, if I’m in the dead section. if not, Hooper in the 10th, if not, Andrews or Delanie Walker in the 13th. I am considering Waller there too though. But I’m basically all WR/RB in rounds 1-12, unless I sneak in that second tier of TE, or if Goff or someone is there in the 11th. For defense, just checking out the week one schedule and figuring it out from there. Other strategical thought processes: no player is a must have and no player is undraftable. But I can’t wait to draft AB when all the non Raider fans I play with pass on him a couple times.
  7. Raiders @ Cardinals - Preseason Week 2 GDT

    Rough game for Murray for sure. He might have some workable tools with the right system, but this one ain’t it. The system is getting exposed in a non-game plan specific preseason game. I can’t imagine how brutal it will look when teams use tape to plan against it. It will get ugly.
  8. Training Camp 2019

    I like Ferrell... but to add add to your point, so many draft voices are heard on Twitter and podcasts now that I’m not sure Mayock would really have the sway to move the needle much anymore. None of the major network personalities did this past draft, at least in my bubble Which is fine. I’d rather him run my favorite team than to be like Kyle Crabbs.
  9. 2019 Hard Knocks: Oakland Raiders

    I've gotten Waller at around pick 220 (above ADP) in my best balls so far. I definitely expect that to creep up in the best ball format, but still fall outside standard 12 man leagues. Who knows though, there really aren't a ton of TEs to be confident in this season, I could see him making it to chic status.
  10. 2019 Hard Knocks: Oakland Raiders

    This represents well that Hard Knocks probably does not affect season performance. I think poor performances coming off of hard knocks has more to do with the teams that can be forced to do it are teams that haven’t made the playoffs in two years, which indicates that they weren’t that good to begin with.
  11. Random Raider Stuff

    My thoughts on Waller. Sorry for the length, and drfrey your concerns are all valid. I just kinda like taking a leap on unproven guys sometimes 1- They have been convinced of Waller’s potential since they got him, as Gruden talked about instantly. They think he has the ability and that he is someone they can not only develop, but can pay dividends during the development 2- His development needs game action, which would not come if they were to bring in a more established guy/ retain Cook. This is why Luke Willson was brought in and Moreau drafted. Willson as a safe, mediocre guy that won’t be in the way of Waller’s shine, but is experienced enough to be insurance. Moreau as the potential all around guy who is safe due to blocking skills. 3- Receiving TE is not a huge priority, but a bonus. With the WR/RB upgrades, this position is the 3rd or 4th option, which is the perfect place to cheap out and give a guy a chance. If he falls flat, no big deal. But cheap upside is key. Good place on the roster to take on little risk while potentially getting rewarded if the guy is as good as they think. Waller himself is still a mystery. You’re right about that. Although he is supposedly clean, we all know sobriety is tenuous, so a misstep is always a worry. And maybe he is a spring/summer wonder. Lord knows we have all seen that before too. However, I think the team and his situation is constructed in a way that gives him the chance to succeed, but won’t be hurt if he doesn’t. TL;DR - receiving tight end is now the fourth option, so might as well give a guy like him the chance for cheap.
  12. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    Yeah, this place is more tempered. I think I was on twitter before I made this post, so it just kinda spilled over.
  13. The Official Derek Carr Thread

    I’m not sure what it is with the Carr debate either. My guess is that people see what they want to see with him. Some have taken the side of support to the point of denying evident flaws in his game; others have decided that he is horrible to the point of denying evidence that he did some good things last year. There are stats that can be cherry picked for both parties, and when you actually look at it, both sides are a bit right and a bit wrong. I want to start a crusade of grounding all Carr takes across all sources: one which we can agree that Carr is a pretty good QB with a bit more potential, but has displayed flaws due to both his play and his supporting cast. I dream of a Raider fan utopia where we can all be cautiously optimistic until we start crushing teams with consistency.
  14. Raider UDFA's

    I feel ya, I just think the PR/KR should pull double duty somewhere, especially since I predict that they keep a FB, and will have some bottom of the roster decisions at TE, LB, and maybe S. I wouldn't be upset with 6 WR + the return specialist if they can efficiently fill out the roster elsewhere.
  15. Raider UDFA's

    I think we need to account for Dwayne Harris (or outside chance for Jalin Marshall). I think one of Nelson, Grant, Doss/Ateman will have to go to ensure we have room for the PR guy. I'd like to see it shake out AB, T. Williams, Renfrow, Nelson, Doss, Harris/Marshall. Good mixture of vet/young and stability/upside. I like Grant and Ateman just fine, but I'm just more interested in developing the higher ceilings in Renfrow and Doss.
  16. 2019 Draft Recap

    I'm not overly worried about perceived value being lost on some of the early picks. If Gruden/Mayock can continue every draft with this much focus, preparation, and confidence, then this team will be built into a winner pretty quickly. There was obviously a plan, and they stayed steady in the execution of it. After last year's collection of misfit toys, this is a breath of fresh air.
  17. Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

    I think that’s a fair assessment. I definitely think some of these players that went right after him will be better, but we just weren’t so desperate at those positions. My opinion is that DE was such an urgent need that I’m glad they clubbed down and just hit it in the fairway. I would have been real nervous if they had to rely on a trade up or a player fall to address DE and get a player that might not be as safe of a fit. But your point still remains - it was real conservative. But after all the rumors about Haskins, Jones, Lock, it was mainly just a relief in my eyes.
  18. Raider UDFA's

    Sounds like Keelan Doss now too. Another good find.
  19. Raider UDFA's

    Pumped on Coney, for sure.
  20. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    This team could take 4 QBs or trade them all for conditional 2023 7th rounders and, try as I might, I still wouldn't be able to become emotionally invested in another team, nor would I be able to stay away. Fandom is a curse.
  21. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    Murray has been plenty up front that he isn’t playing baseball. Also, Mayock/Gruden have worked him out/ have presumably talked to him, so they would know if that was a possibility.
  22. 2019 NFL Draft Thread v5.0

    Yes. I do not see a lot of hype on Coney, but I would love this pick.
  23. 2019 NFL Draft V4

    I like Nelson a lot and would probably put him somewhere in that late 2nd/early 3rd range. I wouldn't mind nabbing an edge with 4, and then trading back either 24 or 27, and using one of the picks recouped there (hopefully something in the 55-70 range) to take him. The two left over from 24, 27, and 35 will be used for anyone slipping too far.
  24. 2019 NFL Draft V4

    I would like Z. Allen very much. I think it could benefit this team to double dip in DE. Get one that can perform pass rush with speed/technique, and then another base type that can still generate some with power/persistence. If the team was to go J. Allen or Burns, say, mixing in a Z. Allen, Omenihu, or Anthony Nelson, out of Iowa would look really nice. I'm a big fan of all three.
  25. Raiders release Jordy Nelson

    I still expect Roberts to be cut too. I thought Jordy was going to be able to man the slot, but eh, I'm not going to worry about losing him at this point.
