Jimmy Garoppolo556.7374.74091.723.3813.3640.370.51.01243.58
Brian Hoyer48.431.9338.81.841.

Jimmy Garoppolo: Replacing Derek Carr with Jimmy Garoppolo is a lateral move, at best, for the Raiders and the offense's outlook overall. From a fantasy perspective, Jimmy G. offers no upside as a runner and is a middling QB2, at best.


Josh Jacobs237.81034.48.3241.1292.40.9208.55
Zamir White91.9404.42.399.873.10.469.39

Jakob Johnson0004.733.20.26.87

Josh Jacobs: Jacobs led the NFL in rushing yards (1,653), yards from scrimmage (2,053) and touches (393) in 2022. He dominated the team's running back touches, as the rest of the team's backs had a total of 77 (16.4%). In addition, Jacobs averaged a career-high 4.9 YPC and has now exceeded 50 catches in back-to-back seasons. That's the good news, but it's unclear when (or possibly even if) he'll sign his franchise tender after the team and Jacobs failed to reach a long-term agreement before July's deadline.

Zamir White: White, a fourth-round pick in 2022, played much less than expected during his rookie season (17 carries in 2022). The Athletic's Tashan Reed wrote in June that "the Raiders may call on White to balance out the workload a bit more in 2023." At a minimum, White is a sleeper to target near the end of fantasy drafts.


Davante Adams103.713898.
Jakobi Meyers70.1810.84.62.1100.07145.15
Hunter Renfrow45.7482.92.800087.94
Tre Tucker15.9188.31.100033.38
Phillip Dorsett6.388.60.500015.01
DeAndre Carter3.337.70.20006.62

Davante Adams: In his first season without Aaron Rodgers, Adams was targeted a career-high 180 times and finished with 100 catches for 1,516 yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns. Adams remains the league's best red zone weapon with double-digit touchdowns in six of the past seven seasons.

Jakobi Meyers: Meyers finished with 67 catches for 804 yards and six touchdowns in 2022 as he averaged a career-high 57.4 YPG. Given his familiarity with the offense and that Darren Waller is now a Giant, Meyers should rank (albeit a distant) second on the team in receiving, producing WR3/flex numbers in 2023.


Michael Mayer36389.92.300070.79
Austin Hooper33.1343.4200062.89
Jesper Horsted5.3620.400011.25

Michael Mayer: While he's not an elite athlete, Mayer is a savvy route-runner with strong hands who led Notre Dame in receiving all three years he was in South Bend. His all-around skill set could accelerate his adjustment to the NFL.

Austin Hooper: Hooper was a top-10 fantasy tight end in back-to-back seasons in 2018 and 2019, respectively, but that feels like an eternity ago. The Raiders drafted Michael Mayer in the second round, and although rookie tight ends tend to start slowly, Mayer is clearly their tight end of the future.
