2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Young backs Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington have both been relatively productive when given opportunities but the new coaching staff in Oakland has no allegiance to them and seemingly didn't believe they were a good enough tandem behind starter Marshawn Lynch. To fill that void, the Raiders opted to bring in another veteran back, Doug Martin, who had spent the previous six seasons in Tampa Bay.

One of the league's least consistent producers, Martin has posted sub-3.0 yards per carry numbers in back-to-back seasons heading into 2018, but also had a monster 2015 where he went off for 1,402 rushing yards at nearly 5.0 yards per carry. There are times when Martin looks like a top-10 back in the league and other times when he looks like he should probably be hanging up the cleats. While he won't likely battle Lynch for starter snaps, Martin does figure to be involved in the offense this season - the question is where and when. Martin does have a 49-catch season on his resume and a does average 8.4 yards per reception over the course of his career, which is a great number for a running back. He's actually been over nine yards per reception in each of his past two seasons, but the sample size is low as he's caught just 23 total passes over that two-year span. Still, the per-touch numbers look good in the passing game and that could allow him to be the primary receiving back on the team as backups Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington have failed to do much in that role and Lynch himself has never been much of a pass catcher.

Martin is a low-cost option that does have upside as a potential bell-cow back if Lynch gets hurt, especially given coach Gruden's adoration for him. However, after a four-game suspension to start the 2017 season due to a PED violation, Martin does bring fantasy owners additional risk of a long suspension if he failed another test, but it seems likely that he was using those PEDs to recover from injury during rather than that he has a serious problem.

Injury Marshawn Lynch lands on IR
Groin injury likely to end his season
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 22, 6:30 pm

Oakland Raiders
The Raiders have placed RB Marshawn Lynch on Injured Reserve. He has a groin injury that should sideline him for at least a month. ... Now his time in Oakland could be over. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Lynch enjoyed a solid first month but ulitimately couldn't carry the offense on his shoulders as the Raiders fell behind in most of their games in the second half. Doug Martin will get the first shot at carrying the early-down workload in his absence, but he's a poor bet to succeed on a team that is committing to a rebuild. Jalen Richard and possible DeAndre Washington could end up being the most valuable members of this backfield pretty quickly.


Injury Marshawn Lynch out with groin injury
Could be placed on IR
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 19, 2:45 pm

Oakland Raiders
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch will miss an extended period of time with a groin injury, a source confirmed to ESPN. The Raiders have discussed placing Lynch on injured reserve but no decision has been reached, the source said. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: First reports suggest Lynch could miss a month with further speculation suggesting he could be placed on IR. In his absence expect Doug Martin and Jalen Richard to handle most of the running back work with Martin operating on early-downs. This news is a boost to Martin and Richard's fantasy value.
