We all know the Raiders used to be and one could argue still are the laughing stock of the league. They have made infamous moves like drafting a punter in the first round, drafting DHB over Crabtree, Nicks, Maclin and Britt. Could AL Davis be ushering in a new way to draft? Probably not. However he has managed to get a good lineup for fantasy owners recently.

 

Ill start out with the most productive, being Zach Miller who was a top 3 TE prior to injury. 

 

Next we have the QB situation. This is one to monitor in 12 team and 2 QB leagues as Jason Campbell has been very productive the last few games. I just received word that Louis Murphy will be back this week, and most of you just shrug your shoulders and wonder who that is keep this in mind. If he had stayed healthy we could be talking about him as a top 20 wr. However, theres a catch, he has been productive but, only with Bruce Gradkowski at the helm. So lets talk about another raiders wr who emerged 2 weeks ago, Jacoby Ford.

 

Another speedy wr that caught Al Davis's eye. Last week he had a 94 yard return touchdown along with an impressive grab where he jumped over emerging star corner brandon flowers and yanked the ball from his hands. I love his potential and his speed and if your league counts return yards hes more than worth a stash. If you can stash murphy as well id do that but, id prefer Murphy over ford. 

 

Also be sure to monitor the Raiders QB situation because AL Davis loves Jason Campbell while Tom Cable likes Gradkowski so expect Campbell to be on a short leash for now. He has been on a 3 game winning streak so that is worth noting and if the Raiders keep winning i don't expect to see a change here. 

 

I wont go into too much detail about Darren Mcfadden since hes a household name but hes had a surge this year and expects to keep it going. Michael Bush has been a nice backup and Marcel Reece could be an emerging Darren Sproles type of player.
