2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Oakland Raiders

- Updated: Friday, July 19th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Oakland Raiders.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Derek Carr544.6360.84002.823.9610.0826.566.30.4244.82
Since entering the league five years ago, Carr has finished as a top-20 fantasy quarterback every season. The QB18 in 2018, Carr threw for a career-high 4,049 yards but a career-low 19 touchdowns. Carr's career-low 3.4% touchdown rate was a full percentage point below his career average, but the improvement in weapons -- Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams and Josh Jacobs -- should see that normalize to his career average or even exceed it. At this point, Carr is vastly underrated compared to current expectations (ADP) and even my own rankings.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Josh Jacobs236.11038.87.0835.62670.89178.4
With little tread on the tires, Jacobs, one of Oakland's three first-round picks, will assume the lead-back role for the revamped Oakland offense. More important than possessing the top-end speed that he lacks, Jacobs has the quickness, elusiveness and power to become the every-down back that Oakland has drafted him to become.
Jalen Richard41.7204.30.6345.7388.51.1469.9
Tied with Jared Cook for the team lead in receptions (68) last season, Richard finished as a top-30 fantasy running back in PPR scoring (RB43 in standard). A more talented receiving corps and a first-round rookie running back with the potential to be a three-down back means that Richard will likely cede some of that passing-game work to others.
Doug Martin81.4333.72.048.661.10.1352.5
Martin had 190 touches for 839 scrimmage yards for Oakland last season and even though he re-signed with the club, first-rounder Josh Jacobs will put a huge dent into Martin's workload.
Chris Warren10.242.80.310.42.906.43

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Antonio Brown94.41161.18.97170.01170.69
Since 2013, Brown has had more than 100 catches and 150 targets every season and averaged 1,524 receiving yards and 11.2 touchdowns per season over that six-year span. In addition, AB has finished as a top-three fantasy wide receiver in five consecutive seasons. A top-three season may be less likely with Derek Carr instead of Ben Roethlisberger, but he should still rank near the league lead in targets.
Tyrell Williams50.3774.64.53000104.64
A few seasons removed from a 1,059-yard breakout season, Williams has had a couple of solid seasons --43/728/4 in 2017 and 41/653/5 in 2018. As Oakland's clear No. 2 receiver, Williams is unlikely to reach the 1,000-yard mark, but he could exceed the production he's had with the Chargers over the past couple of seasons.
Hunter Renfrow34353.61.700045.56
Not the biggest (5-10, 184) or fastest (4.59 forty), Renfrow has overachieved compared to expectations set for him by others in college. Outside of deep PPR formats, Renfrow is unlikely to make a significant impact in his rookie campaign.
Ryan Grant16.4177.10.9800023.59
J.J. Nelson8.3131.10.833.121.70.0320.44
Marcell Ateman4.648.80.30006.68

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Darren Waller27.3286.72.1800041.75
Currently sitting atop Oakland's depth chart at tight end, Waller has a chance for a breakout with Jared Cook now in New Orleans. While Cook was the team's top option last year, offseason changes puts Waller no higher than third amongst wide receivers and tight ends.
Luke Willson18.2194.71.2700027.09
Foster Moreau7.2850.4700011.32
Derek Carrier218.20.10002.42
