Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams has impressed with his speed and route-running so far in OTAs.
Huddle Up: Williams' season-high for targets (119) came in 2016 with the Chargers, and he'll be doing good if he can come close to that this season playing opposite Antonio Brown. Value Williams as a WR5.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown is participating in practice Wednesday, May 22.
Huddle Up: Brown is working with a new quarterback and needs to learn the offense but will be the focal point in the passing game. He can still be a No. 1 receiver in fantasy leagues but probably will not be the first receiver off the board.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown was not present during practice Tuesday, May 21.
Huddle Up: Brown was with the team earlier in the preseason and should return for at least the mandatory minicamp. He will be working in a new offense and with a new quarterback but should still be a No. 1 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown won't play at all in the preseason, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Brown is going to have a tough time putting up the same lofty numbers that he did in Pittsburgh, but he could still finish as a WR1. Just make sure you don't treat him like a sure-fire, top-five fantasy option at the position.

Oakland Raiders RB Isaiah Crowell (Achilles) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Friday, May 3.
Huddle Up: Josh Jacobs should receive most of the carries this season for the Raiders and can be at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/01/2019 7:05 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Doug Martin (Raiders) agreed to terms with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, May 1, according to sources. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Martin likely will serve as the No. 2 running back for the Raiders with Isaiah Crowell out for the season. He probably will receive a handful of carries during games but can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Isaiah Crowell (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' in a workout Tuesday, April 30, and is out for the season.
Huddle Up: Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington will have a chance to fend for touches behind Josh Jacobs. Both backs will be in the RB5 mix in camp.
Posted 4/11/2019 12:04 am UTC
Oakland Raiders restricted free-agent RB Jalen Richard signed a new contract with the Raiders Wednesday, April 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Richard likely will be used as a receiver out of the backfield this upcoming season and could be a possible flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
Posted 3/28/2019 8:03 pm UTC
Free-agent RB Isaiah Crowell (Jets) signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 28, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The addition of Crowell makes one wonder if Marshawn Lynch will not be back. If Lynch - and even Doug Martin - does not return then Crowell is the running back to draft in Oakland. He'll still have company, but there is potential for RB2 status in a new-look offense.
Posted 3/27/2019 6:03 am UTC
Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller is 'interesting' and someone the team is going to give 'a chance of a lifetime' in 2019, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Huddle Up: Waller has consistently been hyped since entering the league in 2015 as a sixth-round college receiver in Georgia Tech's option offense who made the move to tight end shortly thereafter, but he has amassed only 18 receptions over that time. It's not unthinkable that Waller could break out in his age-27 season, but any hype with him needs to be tempered until after the draft because it is likely the Raiders will address the position. Dynasty leaguers could do worse than taking a shot on him, however.
Posted 3/14/2019 2:03 pm UTC
New York Jets RB Isaiah Crowell was released Thursday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Crowell could land in a spot to be worth a look as an RB4 in the right timeshare.

Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders WR Antonio Brown has officially been traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for third- and fifth-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. The trade became official with the new league year beginning Wednesday, March 13, at 4 p.m. EDT.
Huddle Up: Brown is a low-end No. 1 receiver and is probable to be overdrafted in some fantasy circles. He has to learn a new system and build chemistry with a suspect quarterback. However, given Brown's elite skill set, he should adapt sooner than later.
Posted 3/13/2019 6:03 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, March 13, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Raiders are having quite the offseason so far. Williams makes a quality complementary No. 2 wide receiver to Antonio Brown. Brown will see most of the targets, but Williams finishing as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 is certainly in the realm of possibilities.
Posted 3/12/2019 4:03 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams has received interest from the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: The Steelers will be looking to replace Antonio Brown, and Williams likely would join the starting lineup if he signs with the Steelers. He could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if the two sides reach an agreement.
Posted 3/10/2019 4:03 am UTC
Updating an ongoing saga, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown will be traded to the Oakland Raiders, per a source. The verbal agreement reached will send 2019 third-round and fifth-round picks to Pittsburgh, and Oakland will add $30.125 million in guaranteed money to the remaining three years of Brown's contract. The deal is worth $50.125 million with incentives to reach a maximum value of $54.125.
Huddle Up: Brown will be the primary target in Oakland and should remain a No. 1 receiver in fantasy. Age, mileage, a new quarterback, Brown's drama, and having to learn a new system are all factors of concern, but talent and volume make him a late first-round pick in most all formats. He shouldn't fall much beyond the early quarter of the second round in any conventional 2019 format.
Posted 3/08/2019 12:03 pm UTC
Updating previous reports, Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown nixed a potential trade to the Buffalo Bills because he wouldn't commit to playing for them. The Steelers are at square one and running out of potential suitors Friday, March 8.
Huddle Up: Brown will be an elite WR1 in another uniform, but he's not a lock to be the top option away from the Steelers.
Posted 3/07/2019 11:03 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams is expected to receive strong interest from the Cleveland Browns in free agency, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Browns have Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway as starting receivers, but Williams likely would take over one of the outside receiver jobs if he joins the Browns. He could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in leagues if he signs with Cleveland this offseason.
Posted 3/06/2019 7:03 pm UTC
Free-agent WR Tyrell Williams (Chargers) is expected to be pursued by the Indianapolis Colts in free agency. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports anticipates Williams will demand $12 million annually.
Huddle Up: It's not the strongest free-agent wide receiver class and Williams is one of the best receivers available. He's now three years removed from a 1,000-yard campaign and has averaged 5.3 touchdowns over the last three years. If he lands with the Colts he'll have a WR2 ceiling but would be better drafted as a WR3.
Posted 3/06/2019 5:03 pm UTC
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr would welcome the addition of Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown, in the event Oakland trades for Brown. 'I hope he's in play. It would be great to add a guy like that to your team, talent like that,' Carr told the Fresno Bee on Saturday, March 2.
Huddle Up: Duh? It's not really news, per se, but Carr is at least saying the right things ahead of a potential trade for the enigmatic wideout. Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league, is poised to slightly slow down given his age-31 season and having to adjust to a new quarterback. Should Carr be that quarterback, gamers are looking at Brown being no better than a midrange WR1 based on sheer volume alone.
Posted 3/06/2019 12:03 pm UTC
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown's trade talks have heated up to the point that the team has asked for suitors' final offers.
Huddle Up: AB will be a top-flight receiver regardless of the jersey he dons, but it'll be hard to find a spot where he can replicate the explosion of the Steelers offense.
Posted 3/05/2019 1:03 am UTC
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown is not a trade option for the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Eagles have Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor as their main receivers, so Brown likely is not a high priority for the team. Jeffery can be a No. 2 in fantasy leagues, while Agholor has a chance to be a low-end No. 3 receiver.
Posted 3/03/2019 1:03 am UTC
Los Angeles Chargers impending free-agent WR Tyrell Williams is likely to be pursued by the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Williams has flashed big-play ability, but he was stuck battling to be the No. 3 target with the Chargers. He'd have a steadier role if he lands in Oakland, making him a WR3 candidate.
