2009 Oakland Raiders Fantasy Football Preview

Ahhhh my Oakland Raiders. I have been a long lasting Raider fan and it just torments me to observe what my cherished group has become. The Raiders completed 5-11 out of 2008 leaving the Raider Nation with one more year of sorrow. I have composed (and will keep on composing) a few articles about the Raiders possibilities as a group heading into 2009. For this article nonetheless, I will analyze the Raiders exclusively from a dream forthcoming. In light of that how about we take a gander at the dream capability of the Silver and Black for 2009. Visit :- แทงบอลให้กำไร


Its an obvious fact that I am not sold on JaMarcus Russell as a NFL QB and I am even less attached to him as a dream QB. To be gruff, Russell has demonstrated me and individual Raider Nation individuals almost no in his 3 years in the association. Clearly, he has the gun arm however it takes substantially more than that to be a fruitful NFL QB simply ask Jeff George. Besides, Russell has not indicated a very remarkable hard working attitude since the Raiders contributed basically their whole establishment with him 3 years prior. Honestly, I needed and still wished the Raiders had drafted Brady Quinn instead of Russell as I might suspect Quinn has all the apparatuses to be a fine QB in this group for quite a while to come if the Browns actually give him the possibility. I simply don’t see that out of Russell and evidently the Raiders are getting worried also or they would not have marked free operator QB Jeff Garcia to “reinforcement” Russell. I have news for you parents. In the event that Russell begins gradually which is a genuine chance seeing like the Raiders have an absolutley merciless timetable this year Garcia will be in there. Until Russell gives some fire underneathth his can don’t go anyplace close to him on draft day this August even as a number 2 QB.


As down as I am on Russell I am that high on the Raiders running match-up and in my assessment if the Raiders pound the ball throughout the year using the 3 headed beast they presently have on the list I really accept that this group can go 8-8. To start with, Darren McFadden WILL breakout this year to the tune of 1100-1300 yards and 12 all out TD’s. Rely on it. For what reason am I so certain about that? A couple various reasons. To begin with, Dmac is simply excessively damn great. His newbie crusade was crashed to a great extent partially to an obstinate turf toe injury that hampered him for basically the whole year. No doubt about it. Regarding unadulterated ability McFadden is superior to Chris Johnson, Matt Forte, and Steve Slaton. In addition, Dmac has been proactive with respect to the previously mentioned toe injury by having the Raiders mentor place a steel plate in his shoe to help keep such a physical issue from happening once more. At long last, battering ram master Lorenzo Neal has been acquired by the Raiders explicitly to impede for McFadden and to help dispatch his vocation. McFadden is the genuine article. Draft him between the third to fifth rounds as a number 2 RB and watch him detonate.


Notwithstanding McFadden the Raiders likewise sport 2 other fine backs in Justin Fargas and Michael Bush. On the off chance that I am a wagering man I am feeling that Fargas will be the oddball this year. On the off chance that McFadden gets hot from the get-go which I accept he will Fargas won’t be seeing the field a lot. Shrubbery nonetheless, will have a job notwithstanding. The country saw precisely what Bush is equipped for as a sprinter in the week 17 finale against the Buccaneers when he scrambled for 177 yards and 2 TD’s in a game that Tampa expected to win to make the end of the season games and that eventually cost Tampa Head Coach and previous Raider Coach Jon Gruden his activity. Had it not been for the messed up leg he continued at Louisville Bush would have surely been a best ten pick and the Raiders totally took him in the fourth cycle a couple of years back. Shrub will most likely keep on observing work this year as a short yardage/objective line back and don’t be hesitant to make an effort on him with a pick in adjusts 12 and after. With respect to Fargas, I for one wouldn’t squander a single out him in light of the fact that except if McFadden gets injured for the current year I don’t see him putting any sort of advantageous numbers factually.


Dissimilar to the Raiders running assault the group’s getting corps is blurred with debate and question marks. Al Davis stunned me and the remainder of the world when he chose WR Darrius Heyward-Bey over Michael Crabtree and Jeremy Maclin. It is evident to me and every other person that actually the main variable that is important to Mr. Davis while assessing players is the 40 yard run time. I won’t get into Davis here as it isn’t the correct configuration as this is an article relating to the Raiders from a dream planned as it were. Does Heyward-Bey have any dream potential for 2009? Indeed. Would I foolish him? Truly, however no sooner than the 13-fourteenth round and on the off chance that somebody like Maclin or Percy Harvin is still on the board I would take either in front of Heyward-Bey. Nonetheless, from a dream perspective Heyward-Bey has a few things working for him. To start with, he is now the number 1 beneficiary in the group and Mr. Davis has made his goals entirely certain that he means to attempt to get the show on the road profound to the speedster directly as it so happens. On the off chance that you are in a group like mine who rewards you with extra focuses for long TD runs and gatherings than it merits a gave taking a late round flier on Heyward-Bey in light of the fact that the theory of probability says that he will get in any event a couple of bombs from Russell this year. Another collector that could see an expansion in his creation if Russell builds up the way the establishment needs him to is Johnny Lee Higgings. Higgins speaks to a decent ability both at the WR position and as a punt/kick returner. Thus to Heyward-Bey make an effort on Higgins late and if Russell can at long last get his head out of his can you may consider some to be from him as the year advances. Chad Shillings and tenderfoot Louis Murphy from Florida are 2 other Raider beneficiaries to watch out for this fall.


TE Zach Miller could be the greatest recipient if Russell makes progress. Mill operator began to truly become famous a year ago by getting 56 passes for 778 yds and 1 TD. Both the gatherings and yardage drove the Raiders beneficiaries by a mile and despite the fact that the 1 TD is disillusioning Miller makes certain to develop that in 2009. Mill operator alongside Greg Olson from Chicago are my 2 dim pony TE possibility for the up and coming season. Olson has the better QB yet Russell and Miller seemed to shape a decent science a year ago and if that proceeds with Miller has the ability to be a world class NFL TE.


The Raiders DST is to be dodged no matter what until the unit demonstrates something else. A year ago the group positioned 31st against the run and were beat on the ground the entire year. The DL was a finished calamity and LB Tommy Kelley who typically secures down the unit had an off year. The auxiliary is driven by one of if not the best spread corners in the game with Nnamdi Asomugha who was simply marked to an agreement expansion this slow time of year. Asomugha is the advanced Lester Hayes and is really truly outstanding at the CB position in the NFL. The reality nonetheless, is that it’s implied that there are obviously better choices at the DST position than the Raiders and they ought not be considered in any situation under any arrangement. In associations where kickers are compensated with extra focuses for FG’s more than 50 yards kicker Sebastian Janikowski can be of some an incentive as he actually has a similar leg he had emerging from FSU.


To finish up my assessment of the Raiders I firmly propose truly investigating McFadden as a number 2 RB for 2009. I am revealing to you right now he will have an incredible year and I likewise like the TE Miller. With respect to different Raiders there isn’t anything truly to get amped up for from a dream imminent. Next up: The Kansas City Chiefs.
