Bengals bite too much for Raiders in Cincy

Bengals bite too much for Raiders in Cincy

Today’s game in Cincinnati against the Bengals started out with the Raiders getting the ball first after the opening kickoff. Derek Carr’s streak of 8 games without an interception very nearly was ended but the defender dropped the ball that was right in his hands. Oakland wasn’t able to take advantage of their good luck at missing the turnover though, they punted to the Bengals a couple of plays later. Oakland’s defense stopped the Bengals quickly to get the ball back for Oakland. Then thanks to Jared Cook they got to the Bengals side of the field. However, Derek Carr got strip...

Raiders vs Bengals fantasy advice: Ground games for the win

Sundays have been a little bit more fun lately. The Oakland Raiders are playing competitive football and are actually producing impressive fantasy numbers at certain positions. Derek Carr turned in another stud performance with over 300 yards and two touchdowns. He looks like he has turned a corner in Jon Gruden’s offense. If Carr continues his recent play to finish the year, he could become a starting fantasy quarterback once again in 2019. Jared Cook, Seth Roberts and Jordy Nelson have all benefited greatly from Carr’s recent play. Cook had over 100 yards again and Roberts had 76...

Oakland vs Pittsburgh recap, final score 24-21: Raiders get late TD for the upset win against Steelers

It’s another installment of the legendary rivalry between the Raiders and the Steelers. Oakland got the ball first and struck pay dirt right out the gates. They drove down the field with 2 great long catches from Jared Cook, and then it was finished off with a Doug Martin 1 yard TD run. That opening drive touchdown gave the Raiders a 7-0 lead. The two teams traded punts after that before it was the Steelers turn to strike. They went down the field and eventually scored on a 2 yard Steven Ridley touchdown run. It was a 11 play, 67 yard drive that took over 6 minutes of clock and tied the...
Jared Cook sets another new single season career high

Jared Cook sets another new single season career high

The Raiders tight end is having a career year. With still three games and nearly three quarters left in the season, Raiders tight end Jared Cook has set a new single season career high. Midway through the second quarter against the Steelers, Cook caught his third pass of the game and surpass his previous single season career-high of 759 yards which set in 2011. He would have a fourth catch a few plays later, putting his season total at 782 yards and counting. Cook already had a new career high with 6 receiving touchdowns this season, surpassing his previous career high of five which he set...

Raiders vs. Steelers fantasy advice: Derek Carr to keep it going

At last, fantasy football has a bright outlook for the Oakland Raiders. Last week against the Chiefs, Derek Carr was a stud. Carr threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns all while playing a clean game. Jalen Richard provided 126 scrimmage yards in addition to Doug Martin’s 69 total yards and one touchdown. Jared Cook had 100 yards and a touchdown and Jordy Nelson caught 10 balls for 97 yards. Even though it was a losing effort, the Raiders put on a heck of a performance led by a much more confident Carr. Based on the way Oakland’s season has gone to this point, there is no reason...
Raiders Ballers vs Chiefs

Raiders Ballers vs Chiefs

This game was far more competitive than anyone thought it would be. There were things that worked and it was a one-score game until late in the fourth quarter. At this point, that’s about all you can ask for. Ballers Derek Carr, Jared Cook, Jordy Nelson He needed a game like this. His seven straight games without an interception are pretty much meaningless if the offense isn’t doing anything and the team is losing games by considerable margins. This one meant something. It was a division foe and arguably the best team in football. He did plenty to keep it close and he had some sure...

Gruden has ‘no sense’ for Bryant return, has plays ‘getting stale in my office’

The White Tiger has remained in his cage for most of the season. The Raiders put up an admirable fight in Sunday’s 33-40 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs. While Jordy Nelson and Jared Cook combined for 17 receptions for 197 yards and a touchdown, Oakland’s lack of athleticism at wide receiver was apparent. Could you imagine if Derek Carr had a weapon that could effectively stretch the field and create match-up problems for defenses on the outside? That player was supposed to be Martavis Bryant, whom Gruden traded a third round pick to the Steelers to acquire in the off-season. At the...
Raiders vs. Chiefs second half open thread

Raiders vs. Chiefs second half open thread

The Chiefs lead the Raiders 19-7 at the half, after a first half filled with turnovers and sloppy play. The Raiders have turned the ball over twice inside the Chiefs’ half of the field, and the Chiefs turned it over on their first series. The Raider miscues have robbed them of many sustained drives, and without that this might be a close game. Pat Mahomes has thrown for 160 yards and two touchdowns to Travis Kelce, and the Raiders have no answer for him. However, the Chiefs have no one who can cover Jared Cook, who has 46 yards on four catches. Can the Raiders come back and make this...

Raiders TE Jared Cook a constant for QB Derek Carr

BALTIMORE - Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has had little continuity with his receiving targets this season between trades (Amari Cooper) and injuries (Martavis Bryant, Brandon LaFell, Jordy Nelson).

In an inconsistent season for the Raiders’ offense, Cook went into Sunday’s game at Baltimore ranked sixth among NFL tight ends in catches and fourth in receiving yards.
