Outlook

The Raiders made a lot of moves this offseason and should be improved over last season. Oakland can improve on those four wins but aren't quite a playoff team just yet. The offense still needs a top No. 1 receiver and the aging Matt Schaub isn't the long-term answer at quarterback. The defense also is erratic and can give up the big game, which also is a concern. But overall, the team is improving and getting better, which is a good thing for the Raiders.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Rod Streater was the most consistent receiver for the Raiders last season. He nearly 900 yards and caught 60 passes. He'll start from day one this season and has a much better quarterback situation to work with this season. Matt Schaub is a big improvement over what the Raiders used last season, which is a plus for Streater. He could have some big games and push towards that 1,000-yard mark this season. He is good late-round sleeper for fantasy teams, ready to take his game to a new level.
FANTASY DUD
Running back Maurice Jones-Drew heads to Oakland this season in hopes of reviving his career. We aren't so sure that will happen, though. He moves to a timeshare with the Darren McFadden and likely sees a dip in touches this season. And Jones-Drew hasn't looked nearly as explosive the last few seasons, which is another concern. Plus, we think McFadden is a more talented back at this stage of his career, so he could run away with the starter's job if he happens to stay healthy. Don't expect Jones-Drew to turn things around with the Raiders.
