2012 Team Outlook: Oakland
TE David Ausberry, OAK - Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)
A converted wideout, Ausberry currently projects as a pass-catching complement to Brandon Myers. He could develop into an impressive, if only occasional, receiving threat.Injury Status: Injured Reserve
PK Sebastian Janikowski, OAK - Solid/Safe Pick
Janikowski has a strong leg and modest accuracy. Despite missing a game, he finished last season eighth in the league in individual scoring. If you believe the Raiders will top their 8-8 mark of a year ago, you should trust that Janikowski will put up better numbers this season as well.
Oakland Defense - Deep-league Only
Defense was generally a weakness for the Raiders in 2011, though they did excel at forcing interceptions. With little offseason player movement of significance (and a rookie defensive coordinator now calling the shots), Oakland may once again struggle to keep opponents from putting points on the board.
