ESPN Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez believes DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard will split the workload in Week 8, as opposed to one serving as the bellcow with Marshawn Lynch suspended for one week.
Our rankings reflect as much, with neither offering a high ceiling. Consider both a FLEX option in a week with six teams on a bye week. All signs point to a running back by committee for the Raiders.

Week 11 vs. New England Patriots (game in Mexico City)
MODO BESTIA! Beast Mode heads south of the border to face a Patriots defense that is just 24th in our aFPA vs. RB rankings. Overall, they've allowed the eighth-most PPR points to opposing backs. Before the bye, Lynch also received 16 touches, the most he's had since Week 1. Hopefully, that's a sign of things to come. Given the matchup, Lynch is a good FLEX option, but anything more than that is risky business given his 2017 inconsistencies. He'll need to score.
