Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr is scheduled to count $21.5 million against the 2020 salary cap, and releasing him would save the Raiders $16.5 million after a $5 million charge for dead money. Previous reports have placed the odds of Carr's return at 70 percent.
Huddle Up: The move to Las Vegas could mean keeping Carr for one more chance to prove he can be a franchise quarterback. Starting fresh for a new starter in Jon Gruden's offense in the first season in Sin City isn't the ideal way to put the best foot forward. Carr is an erratic No. 2 quarterback in 2020 fantasy drafts based on potential alone.

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow had 23 receptions for 344 yards and three touchdowns on third downs during his rookie season, and 70 percent of those catches resulted in first downs. Head coach John Gruden called Renfrow a 'special' player after he closed the year with 13 catches and 209 yards over the final two weeks.
Huddle Up: There are a lot of question marks for the Raiders entering 2020, but Renfrow appears entrenched in the slot and could muster some real fantasy appeal, particularly in PPR leagues.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller (thumb) underwent thumb surgery Monday, Dec. 30.
Huddle Up: Waller finished the season with 90 receptions, 1,145 yards and three touchdowns. He may miss some offseason workouts because of the surgery but should be ready for training camp. He will be a solid No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues next season.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was downgraded to out Saturday, Dec. 28, for the game Sunday, Dec. 29, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: It's a big, but expected, blow for the Raiders who must win Sunday in order to have any chance at a postseason berth. RB DeAndre Washington is a must-start RB2.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 27, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Williams had a bounce back performance last week after a few disappointing games and recorded 105 yards and one touchdown against the Denver Broncos earlier this season. He can be a No. 3 receiver for fantasy players this week.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness, shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 27, and is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Washington likely will receive most of the carries in the running game and has played well over the last few weeks. He can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is not expected to play in Week 17, according to information obtained from a source Friday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Jacobs has enjoyed a standout rookie season, but a nagging shoulder injury dampened the finish, costing him three of the season's final four games if he winds up sitting out Sunday as expected.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr's performance this season was praised by head coach Jon Gruden. 'He's done a lot of good things,' Gruden said 'I know there's a lot of swirling reports out there, but Derek's done a great job. He's done a heck of a job for us.'
Huddle Up: Carr has been efficient all year, completing 71.1 percent of his passes. On the flip side, he has yet to record a 300-yard game and has just 20 touchdowns. If he remains with Oakland beyond this season, Carr will likely remain a QB2 for fantasy purposes.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams (foot) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 26. He wasn't on the injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 25.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers will want to see at least a limited practice session from Williams Friday, Dec. 27, but there shouldn't be too much concern at this point. He's a WR2 in the must-win game for the Raiders.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder, infection) clarified Thursday, Dec. 26, that he had surgery on Christmas to deal with a leg infection. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the surgery should not in itself prevent Jacobs from possibly playing in Week 17, but the running back still remains a question mark due to his lingering shoulder injury.
Huddle Up: We'll see if we get more clarity over the next few days of practice, but Jacobs still seems unlikely after missing two of the last three games due to his shoulder.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) participated in the team's walk-through Tuesday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Offensive coordinator Greg Olsen called Jacobs' work on Tuesday "encouraging." The rookie has already surpassed 1,000 yards rushing, so it's unlikely he'll be returning for the regular-season finale just to pursue a milestone. Oakland still has a slim chance of making the playoffs, so it seems reasonable to believe Jacobs will play if he can tolerate the pain. If not, DeAndre Washington makes for a solid RB2 play in Week 17 versus the Denver Broncos.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has a chance to play in the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor Jacob's practice participation during the week to see if he will be able to play. He would be a risky option if he is active but should still be a starting option in leagues.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller caught all four of his targets for 37 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was the second-lowest receiving total of the season for Waller, and it came at a horrible time for fantasy owners playing for titles. Still, it is tough to complain too much about a season that saw Waller top 1,000 yards.

Oakland Raiders WR Tyrell Williams caught all four of his targets for 82 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was a solid outing in what has been a mostly quiet second half of the year for Williams. He has scored just once in the last eight games, and he has been held below 50 yards six times in that stretch. He's a big-play dependent, all-or-nothing flex option.

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow caught seven of his nine targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: After missing three games with a rib injury, Renfrow picked up where he left off. He's become one of Derek Carr's favorite targets in the second half of the year, and he will have WR3 potential in the finale. Looking ahead to 2020, Renfrow could be a popular sleeper.

Oakland Raiders RB DeAndre Washington rushed 23 times for 85 yards and a touchdown and caught two of his three targets for 21 yards in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: With Josh Jacobs sidelined, Washington served as a the workhorse in the Oakland backfield. If Jacobs misses the finale, Washington should at least be a flex option against the Denver Broncos.

Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 26 of his 30 pass attempts for 291 yards and a touchdown and added a three-yard rushing score in a 24-17 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Carr continues to complete passes at an impressive rate, but he has thrown more than one touchdown just once in his last seven games. He's only a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (rib) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Renfrow has missed the last few games because of the injury but should have a role in the passing game this week. He could be a flex option in some leagues but is not a must-start option.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard should both receive more playing time with Jacobs out of the lineup. Washington can be considered a possible flex option in standard leagues, while Richard can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' (shoulder) 69 broken tackles this season are seven more than any other running back, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: Jacobs' 1,150 rushing yards are by far the most of any rookie and the fourth most in the entire NFL this season. A shoulder injury could sideline him in Week 16, but Jacobs looks like a RB1 candidate for the foreseeable future.

Oakland Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (rib) said he is feeling good and ready to pick up where he left off with QB Derek Carr prior to his injury. 'I think we were starting to hit our stride a little bit and it's tough to miss time at that point, but those good things you did don't just go away,' Renfrow said. 'Hopefully we're building something for a while, so we work on things every day at practice and gain confidence from doing that in games.'
Huddle Up: Renfrow had strung together the best four games of his career before suffering an injury against the New York Jets. There's a chance he could return for the final two games, and while the rookie won't have much value in redraft leagues the rest of the way, Renfrow could be worth stashing in keeper leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 18.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is not expected to play in the Week 16 game, but fantasy players will know more about his status later in the week. DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would share playing time if Jacobs is ruled out. Washington could be a flex option in deeper standard leagues, while Richard would have value in point-per-reception leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (shoulder) isn't guaranteed to be available for the final two games of his rookie season, according to head coach Jon Gruden Monday, Dec. 16. 'All I can say is I've coached a long time and I've had some really tough backs - really tough guys. And he is up there at the top of the food chain,' Gruden said. 'This guy is one tough customer. He gave us everything he had yesterday. But his status for the coming weeks will be in question.'
Huddle Up: Jacobs pushed through the injury for 89 rushing yards on 24 carries while adding another 20 yards on two receptions against the Jacksonville Jaguars. His absence would be severely detrimental for fantasy managers he helped get to the championship, but he'll need to be in lineups as long as he's active.

Oakland Raiders TE Darren Waller caught eight of his 10 targets for 122 yards in a 20-16 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark for the year.
Huddle Up: Waller has just three touchdowns this year, but he has topped 70 yards in four of his last five games and is up to 80 catches and 1,001 yards. He's become a must-start TE1 in his fourth season in the league.
