Agent for Raiders WR Rod Streater said now that screws been put on foot he could be back in 5-6 weeks. He says the best case is Nov. 8 game.

Fantasy Impact:

So the best case is that Streater returns Week 10. It's a tough blow for one of our late-round favorites here at 4for4, but it opens up the door for another site favorite -- Andre Holmes -- who should see plenty of work with Streater sidelined and Denarius Moore seemingly on the outs. Holmes has produced when given starter's snaps and targets. The quarterback situation is a problem in Oakland, but the Raiders figure to trail a lot, so Holmes should see plenty of work.

Raiders WR Rod Streater (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 4. Streater is expected to miss 4-5 weeks with a foot injury that will require minor surgery. James Jones continues to be the team’s de facto WR1, with Denarius Moore and Andre Holmes competing for snaps at the WR2 spot.

Raiders have 'confidence' in WR Andre Holmes

With Rod Streater out with a fractured foot, the next Oakland Raiders receiver in the rotation will probably be Andre Holmes.

Oakland coach Dennis Allen said the 6-foot-4 Holmes is an intriguing prospect. He had five catches for 45 yards against the Houston Texans and made a beautiful 29-yard catch at the New England Patriots after Streater was hurt.

The Raiders need more reliable receivers and perhaps Holmes will get his chance.

"We've got confidence that Andre, when we put him in the game, will go out and make some plays for us," Allen said. "He made a couple plays for us in the game the other day. He drew the pass interference penalty and had a big catch down in the boundary. Those are some of the things that Andre did for us last year and we feel like he can bring some of those things for us this year."

Fantasy Impact:

James Jones is locked in as a starter and Denarius Moore played more snaps in the last two weeks, with Streater limited. Holmes saw a significant amount of playing time, however, and Moore had a drop that led to the game-ending interception by the Patriots in Week 3. Holmes may get a chance to play ahead of Moore, but even if he's the WR3, he has a chance to emerge as the WR2. He performed well in starter’s snaps over the final six games of the 2013 season, averaging 4.0-66-.17 (WR3-type numbers) in that span.

Rod Streater believed to have fractured foot

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said WR Rod Streater appear to have fractured foot injuries. Would very likely end his season.

Fantasy Impact:

He was started off in the second quarter and was in street clothes and crutches on the sidelines after that according to reports. James Jones and Denarius Moore probably move up a spot on the depth chart with Andre Holmes possibly seeing more action.

Raiders wide receiver Rod Streater has a hip flexor injury.

Fantasy Impact:

That's all we really know at this point but will continue to update you on his status for Week 3. James Jones busted out in the loss with a 9-112-1 line. But Andre Holmes and Denarius Moore could see more time if Streater is unable to go in Week 3. All are still risky fantasy plays in this Raiders offense.

Paul Gutierrez feels Raiders WR Denarius is on the roster bubble.

Moore started 35 of the 41 NFL games in which he's played, including 10 of 13 a season ago. His playmaking ability should separate him from the rest of the Raiders receiving corps. But being listed third at a receiver spot, behind Andre Holmes and James Jones, not only put his starting position in jeopardy, but also seemingly places him squarely on the 53-man-roster bubble.

Raiders Beat: QB Matt Schaub 'primed' for 'comeback' season

Thursday, August 7, 2014, 10:25am

ESPN - [Full Article]

QB Matt Schaub is primed for a comeback-player-of-the-year-type season. He is still a guy who has passed for more than 4,000 yards three times in his career, and a change of scenery from Houston could be the re-energizing boost the Raiders’ new quarterback needs. His physical gifts and experience give Oakland a seasoned QB similar to Carson Palmer but with more mobility and better talent around him. The running game, being a legitimate threat with Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden, will open up Schaub’s bread-and-butter play-action passing game, which he’s already flashed in camp.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s not a good idea to depend on Schaub or the Raiders’ passing game in general, but it’s feasible that he works his way into a QBBC/streaming role if he can regain his confidence after a brutal 2013 campaign. The Raiders have a decent group of receivers, including Rod Streater, Andre Holmes, James Jones and Denarius Moore.

Raiders WR Andre Holmes rising, Denarius Moore falling

Inside Bay Area - [Full Article]

At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Raiders WR Andre Holmes is four inches taller and 20 pounds heavier than Denarius Moore. Over the last seven games of the 2013 season, Holmes 25 receptions for 431 yards - an average of 17.2 yards per catch - and had a touchdown.

HC Dennis Allen noted the trend toward larger receivers league-wide and said of Holmes, “Sometimes you get these big receivers and they don’t play big. Andre not only has the physical stature but he plays to that stature,’’ I think he’s going to be a real factor for us this year.’’

Fantasy Impact:

Holmes is now on the radar as a serious late-round sleeper. He performed well in starter’s snaps over the final six games of the 2013 season, averaging 4.0-66-.17 (WR3-type numbers) in that span.

Raiders WR Andre Holmes is listed as a starter at wide receiver along with last year’s leading receiver Rod Streater, relegating newly-signed WR James Jones to the second team ahead of the team’s first preseason game this week.

Holmes had a strong close to last year, catching 22 passes for 366 yards and a touchdown, and it would seem the Raiders want to see if he can keep it up this year.

Discussing Raiders WR Andre Holmes...

“He’s a long strider, a big guy who can stretch the field vertically and go up and get the football,” quarterback Matt Schaub said. “Obviously, his height and his ability to adjust in the air are some of his strengths, as well as some of the intermediate routes. Just being able to get to the top of his route, come strong out of his cut, he can be a guy that can stretch the field for us.”

Fantasy Impact:

Denarius Moore has not had a great offseason and may lose snaps to Holmes, who has played well when given the opportunity.

Beat: Rod Streater, James Jones 'are the starters'

Monday, June 23, 2014, 10:12am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Raiders beat writer Paul Gutierrez was asked about the team's depth chart at WR: "Right now right now, or later, later (George Lopez voice)? Well, right now, on June 23, I'd say that James Jones and Rod Streater are the starters, with Denarius Moore nipping at their heels and Andre Holmes waiting in the weeds. Juron Criner also showed some life in organized team activities and minicamp. Truly, though, the title of starting receiver may prove to be just that -- a title, as with no true No. 1 consistent receiver on the roster, someone like, I don't know, Andre Johnson, the Raiders figure to use a lot of mixing and matching."

Fantasy Impact:

Moore seems to be fading within the organization. This is a notoriously positive time of year and there have been a few negative reports about Moore's progress. Another beat writer went so far to say that Andre Holmes seems to be passing Moore on the depth chart. Streater is the player we like at his current ADP. He has progressed well and is entering his third season.
