  Raiders | Kenyan Drake's versatility to be highlighted    Tue Apr 6, 02:51 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake expects 'to be used in a multitude of ways' and isn't overly concerned about being a starter, according to comments he recently made to ESPN's Paul Gutierrez.'Well, with my abilities, just being a starter ... isn't something that is a high priority, in terms of being out there for however many plays. What Coach (Jon) Gruden said (in) how he was going to use me was just being on the field in a multitude of ways - playing receiver, playing running back. ... Just having the ability to kind of use my versatility as a weapon in the open field is something that really spoke to me. And to kind of share that role with Josh, and him being obviously such a capable back, I feel like it spells success for this team,' Drake said.

Footballguys view: The Raiders are likely to line up Drake all over the formation. Josh Jacobs will be the primary ball-carrier, but Drake could mix in as a change-of-pace runner, a receiver out of the backfield and he could also line up in the slot. If used correctly, Drake could have flex appeal for Fantasy GMs in 2021.

  Raiders | Willie Snead signing with Vegas    Fri Mar 26, 02:17 PM

Free agent WR Willie Snead (Ravens) on Friday, March 26, will sign a one-year contract with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Footballguys view: Snead will have competition for slot snaps from Hunter Renfrow, and maybe Kenyan Drake. This fans out the Raiders target tree even further, but does give them one of the deepest wide receiver groups in the league.

  Raiders | Kenyan Drake to move around    Thu Mar 25, 09:47 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake said he was told he would be used in a 'multitude' of ways in the offense, including lining up at wide receiver.

Footballguys view: That's the smart way to look at Drake. Josh Jacobs is there to carry a heavy workload as a running back. In order to get Drake on the field it will have to be in many different ways.

Footballguys view: The reworked deal will also give him the opportunity to make up to $8 million including incentives. Mariota is set to hit free agency in 2022. He's sticking with the Raiders as the backup to Derek Carr although there have been plenty of rumblings that Mariota could be dealt if the price was right.

Free agent RB Kenyan Drake (Cardinals) on Thursday, March 18, signed an undisclosed deal with the Las Vegas Raiders, according to his representatives.

Footballguys view: Drake got 11 million guaranteed over two years, so the Raiders are likely planning a committee here. Josh Jacobs fantasy value takes a big hit here, and that's not even factoring in the hit he takes as the Raiders for some reason decided to rebuild their offensive line.

Las Vegas Raiders LB Nick Kwiatkoski and LB Cory Littleton restructured their contracts Friday, March 12. Kwiatkowski saved the team $2.7 million, and Littleton freed up $4.4 million.

Footballguys view: Littleton was a free agent bust last year, but the team is sticking with him. Kwiatkowski was the better of the two free agent linebacker pickups last year, but he also missed some time with a pec injury. The Raiders have over 40 million of cap room to work with in free agency, and could create more if they release Marcus Mariota.
