The Roto Street Journal moves from one juggernaut to the next, hitting all the fantasy angles of the Oakland Raiders. Grant Cohn of the Press Democrat returns and brings all his fire takes yet again while helping us dig deep into the many fantasy faces here. What will Marshawn Lynch bring to the table, and how many TDs can we expect? Is “the dog” truly coming out of Amari Cooper, and is he primed to explode into the WR1 elite? What juicy tidbit do fantasy owners NEED to know on Michael Crabtree? How will new TE Jordan Cook fit into the scheme? Does Cordarelle Patterson truly have some value? And what do all these pieces mean for Derek Carr, and how will he perform in new OC Todd Downing’s system? This interview is as information-packed as they come, and full of all the no-nonsense Grant always brings.
Also, The Wolf explains how such an offensive force can be taken to an even higher level in 2017, and what it means for fantasy owners. Find out where to draft all your Raiders and what to expect now!
