Strengths, weaknesses and X-factors too

The Las Vegas Raiders made some big splash moves this offseason, highlighted by trading for Davante Adams and signing Chandler Jones, which has undoubtedly added some star power to the roster. However, the Raiders’ lineup is still struggling to get some notoriety from the analytics community.

Pro Football Focus’ Ben Linsey recently ranked Las Vegas’ roster as the 21st-best in the NFL or...

Tackle machine was on one against Chicago

That week, he...

Cornerback is expected to be one of the Las Vegas Raiders' biggest needs next offseason as their top three players on the depth chart, Trayvon Mullen, Rock Ya-Sin, and Anthony Averett, have contracts that expire at the end of the year. While there’s still plenty of time between now and when Dave Ziegler, Josh McDaniels and the Raiders’ brass have to solve that problem, one guy to keep an...

PFF is low on the Raiders secondary

The Las Vegas Raiders secondary is one of the question marks entering the season. The Raiders didn’t address it aggressively in the draft or free agency. The only moves were the trade for Rock Ya-Sin and Anthony Averett, and both these players are not premier NFL starters.

Losing veteran and stand-out 2021 player Casey Hayward hurts but Patrick Graham must have confidence in the group. PFF is not impressed with...
