Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs has earned a 85.6 season grade from Pro Football Focus, which ranks as the highest so far among the first-round picks from the 2019 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: With 507 total yards and four TDs on 94 touches, Jacobs ranks eighth (standard scoring) and 14th (PPR) among fantasy running backs. With only six receptions on eight targets, he could use more work in the passing game but is close to a must-start as the bellcow of a better-than-expected Raiders team.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones was traded to the Oakland Raiders Monday, Oct. 7, in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round draft choice.
Huddle Up: The Bills have solid receiver depth with John Brown, Cole Beasley and Duke Williams, so they could trade Jones at this point. Williams probably will receive a few more targets during games and could be a flex option depending on the matchup.

Oakland Raiders WR Foster Moreau managed four grabs for a team-high 46 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears in London.
Huddle Up: Moreau still has a ways to go before he is a blip on the fantasy radar outside of the very deepest of leagues. The Raiders are off in Week 6.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller racked up four catches for 39 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears in London.
Huddle Up: Waller has shown glimpses of fantasy brilliance, especially in Week 3 when he went over 100 yards. But while he has at least four catches in all five outings, he hasn't been very consistent. The Raiders are off in Week 6.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed six times for 17 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears and he added three grabs for 19 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Washington was spelling Josh Jacobs and made the most of his chances. However, as long as Jacobs is healthy, he has limited fantasy appeal. The Raiders are off until Week 7 due to a bye.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed 26 times for 123 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has rushed for at least 79 yards in four of his five games, and he has two multi-TD performances already this season. Fantasy owners will have to make alternate plans with a bye in Week 6 for the Raiders.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 25-of-32 passes for 229 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Chicago Bears in London.
Huddle Up: Carr simply had to hand it off to Josh Jacobs and he did the rest, as the rookie had two of the team's three rushing touchdowns. The Raiders have two weeks off with the bye, but Carr is best used as a QB2 in most fantasy leagues on a normal week.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (elbow) returned to the Week 5 game after missing some time because of an elbow injury.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has been a solid fantasy option during the first month of the season and should be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) is considered a long-shot to play in Week 5's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source. He was listed as questionable on the injury report and did not practice at all during the week.
Huddle Up: Williams has been Oakland's most productive receiver this season, with 17 receptions for 216 yards and four touchdowns through four games. Fantasy owners should have alternate receiving options on hand in case he is deactivated but even if Williams suits up, he should be viewed as nothing more than a very risky flex option in deeper formats this week.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (elbow) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has been a solid fantasy option for players this season and should be a solid No. 2 running back again this week.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Williams did not practice this week and probably will be a game-time decision. He has played well over the first month of the season but is a risky option in fantasy leagues because of his uncertain status.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (elbow) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is off to a solid start in his rookie season and is a fine No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (undisclosed) is not listed among the injured players on the practice report Wednesday, Oct. 2. He had precautionary X-rays for an undisclosed ailment after the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: You can start Carr safely in Week 5 for the game against the Chicago Bears if you normally rely upon him in fantasy football, although he could be without WR Tyrell Williams (foot), who did not practice Wednesday.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (elbow) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Jacobs should be fine for the Week 5 game and likely will receive his normal workload. He has posted solid numbers in three of the four games this season and can be a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues this week.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Williams' status later this week. He has caught a touchdown in all four games this season but has also been held to under 50 yards in each of the last three games. He can be at least a flex option in leagues this week if he plays.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams caught three of his seven targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in a 31-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4, and he has scored a touchdown in all four games this season.
Huddle Up: Williams has been held under 50 yards in each of the last three games, but his nose for the end zone makes him a touchdown-dependent WR3 candidate.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller caught seven of his eight targets for 53 yards in a 31-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Waller continues to benefit from Derek Carr's love of the short pass, and he led the team in catches, targets and yards against the Colts. He has caught at least six passes and topped 50 yards in all four games this season, establishing himself as a high-floor TE1.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed 17 times for 79 yards and caught two passes for 29 yards in a 31-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Although Jacobs hasn't found the end zone since the opener, he has delivered at least 99 total yards in three of the first four games. He should provide volume-based RB2 production more often than not.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr (undisclosed) underwent precautionary X-rays after suffering an undisclosed injury during the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Carr has thrown six touchdowns in four games but has thrown for at least 250 yards in only one of the four games this season. He likely will be ready for the Week 5 game but probably will not be a starting option in most leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Jones appears to have a good chance to play this week but has not been a big part of the passing game so far this season. He probably will receive a few targets against the New England Patriots but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Huddle Up: Jones has caught five of 10 targets for 65 yards through three games. He isn't start worthy in all but deepest of leagues until more teams go on bye at the same time.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is a player that the team would like to get more involved in the passing game, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has been targeted only three times in three games and has one catch for 28 yards. Jacobs' fantasy value would increase if he had a bigger role in the passing game. He should still be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option.

Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones caught two of his three targets for 33 yards in a 21-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.
Huddle Up: Jones has just five catches after three games, and John Brown and Cole Beasley appear to be the main weapons for Josh Allen. His third season is shaping up to be a quiet one, and you should feel free to cut ties with Jones.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams finished with three catches, 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings on three targets.
Huddle Up: Williams was bugged by a hip injury during the week, so perhaps that's why his production was down a bit despite the fact the Raiders were passing more. He remains a decent WR3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4, another indoor game in Indianapolis.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller registered 13 receptions for 134 yards on 14 targets in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Huddle Up: The Raiders got into a deep hole early and they were forced to pass early and often. The short and intermediate passes were right up the alley of Waller, who was obviously a frequent target for Derek Carr. He has at least six grabs, 63 yards and seven targets in all three outings this season. Despite the lack of scores he has already emerged as a low-end TE1 in all fantasy leagues. The Raiders travel to meet the Colts in Week 4.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed 10 times for 44 yards in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings and he had no receptions on two targets.
Huddle Up: Jacobs wasn't heavily involved in the run game, as the Raiders got away from it early with a big deficit on the board. As such, Jacobs saw his fewest carries in any game to this point and he hasn't visited the end zone since his two-TD outing in Week 1. He'll look for better results in Week 4 at Indianapolis, and remains a decent low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in most formats.
