Thanks for this. I'm trying to figure out this FF thing and looking for Raiders offensive players. If I go into the season believing they will be a run team first and they do stupid things like finish the season with 75% passing plays, I will be pissed because I plan on taking at least 2 Raiders RB on my team. Also, I would pick Ausberry over Rivera. I think he has more FF point value as a receiver.
Schaubie 6.1 FPts/G... If he averages one TD a game that gets him six. That is stupid unless he doesn't start. He will average 250 yards a game and 1-2 TD passes. In my league that nets him 11 points at the minimum before interceptions are subtracted.
MJD and DMC can over achieve or just hit those predictions depending on injuries and the platoon situation. Some back will carry the ball in the endzone but without a Adrian Peterson type it's a crap shoot. I probably will have one of these guys on my team.
All raiders WR's and TE's are likely to go up in FF production with Schaubie as the triggerman. The problem the Raiders have in FF is there is no clear # 1 running the football and catching the football. Until we find out who Schaubie is comfortable chucking the ball to we will not know. I will say barring injury Streater should average more than 6.5 FPts/G.

Well the good news is most Raiders players will be available late in the draft so really nothing to lose gambling on a few.I think I might target McFadden as he should drop in most drafts.I think he will be motivated to get a big contract playing on a 1 yr deal plus in a run heavy scheme should put up some points and I just don't think Drew has a lot left in the tank (hope Im wrong).I agree Schaub should ave more than that.McGloin probably ave around that and Schaub is an upgrade but I still wouldn't touch him in ff.He will go undrafted in most leagues and can snatch him in fa if need be.If a wr seems to gell with Schaub in camp I might take a late rd flier on as we will probably have to pass a lot towards the end of games.I think 1 or 2 players could surprise this year as this isn't the same team from the last 2 years and that's all most will relate to.I will be paying close attention to who is stepping up in camp and maybe take some late rd fliers on some Raider players this year.
