Description

The Oakland Raiders roster is falling apart, both by injury and design as the first-year overhaul continues under coach Jon Gruden. The Raiders traded Khalil Mack amidst a preseason holdout, then dealt Amari Cooper to Dallas this week for a first-round pick. Just days prior to their Week 7 bye, the Raiders also announced Marshawn Lynch would go on injured reserve.

The injury to Lynch creates an interesting conversation in fantasy football about which of the Raiders backs will see a bigger value bump as a result. Doug Martin will presumably jump to the top of the depth chart, but Jalen Richard will also stabilize his role as the team’s top receiving option.

Martin is a former first-round pick who produced monster stat lines in two of his six seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2012 with 1,926 total yards and 12 touchdowns, but struggled with injuries and inconsistency in the seasons that followed. He also rushed for 1,402 yards in 2015, then averaged 2.9 yards per carry in 2016 and ’17.

So, the results are mixed for Martin, but his upside is worth chasing. The big question is, will the Raiders offense be remotely good enough to lean on Martin and get him valuable carries at the goal-line? If not, the team could play from behind often and put Richard in position to get more work in the receiving game.

Take a look at the video above for PennLive reporter Dustin Hockensmith's thoughts on Martin and Richard and be sure to follow along with our 2018 fantasy football coverage on PennLive.com.
