Raiders week 8 Ballers & Busters: Part two

Busters Greg Olson This game was just bizarre from the very start. After three-straight chunks of yards picked up, everything just fell apart. Two of those big chunks early on were big runs (15 and 8). The Raiders were having early success against the Browns porous run defense. So, what did they do? They went away from it. A couple plays later, the wildcat reared its ugly head as Derek Carr split out right as a wide receiver, and Darren McFadden took the snap. He rolled toward Carr, but there was an oncoming rusher in his face as he flung the pass to no man's land. It was the first of many...

Raiders fall to 0-7 with 23-13 loss to Browns

CLEVELAND — The Raiders couldn’t score a touchdown for the first 59 minutes Sunday and were actually in the game for three quarters. But the ending was really never in doubt, was it now, and Oakland fell to 0-7 after Cleveland scored the game’s first touchdown early in the fourth quarter and won 23-13. Former 49ers safety Donte Whitner hit Darren McFadden and forced a fumble with 23 seconds left in the third quarter, after the Raiders, down 9-6, had driven 71 yards to the Cleveland 20. The ball flew into Joe Haden’s hands, who returned it 34 yards to the 47 to set up the Browns...

2015 NFL Draft running backs to watch

It's Saturday and that means College Football. So with that in mine, let's take a look at some runningbacks the Raiders could target in the first or second round in the 2015 NFL Draft. First Round Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia Todd Gurley is the best runningback I have seen in college football since Darren McFadden. Gurley is Marshawn Lynch 2.0 as he can run a sub 4.5 40-yard dash but has a powerful frame at 6'1", 232 pounds. What makes him special is his ability to simply run defenders over like a bulldozer. It is rare when the first defender brings Gurley down. "I don't know if I've faced a...

Fantasy Football Free Agent Frenzy Week 8

After hitting on many free agents last week, this is another solid week to make some changes to your fantasy football team.

McFadden Outperforms MJD In Week 6

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed 14 times for 80 yards, while teammate Maurice Jones-Drew had four rushing attempts and ran for 30 yards.Fantasy Spin:Maurice Jones-Drew was supposed to get a larger share of the rushing attempts, but that didn't happen. We still don't know what to make of the Raiders backfield and at this time don't recommend either back, but if you must then McFadden is the option.
