Big and lightning fast, Latavius Murray could make a splash if he earns a starting job. For now he'll have to wait for Darren McFadden to get injured or play terribly. There's a glimmer of opportunity as McFadden has never missed fewer than three games in a season.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

Moore caught 51 balls last year and 30 the year before. Those are solid numbers for any second year wide receiver, especially considering he wasn't the clear cut #1 in the offense, sharing time with new Colts WR Darius Heyward Bey. Is it time for a breakout season 3? Could happen, but don't count on it. Ongoing instability at QB and on the offensive line will make it tough for Moore to complete the leap to fantasy stardom. We like him, we just wish he had a better quarterback throwing him the ball. Don't discount appearances by as many as three different starting quarterbacks this season as Oakland tries to find a way to win games.

Streater was a serviceable fill-in as a rookie and should get the chance to show what he can do as a starter in his second season. The off-season release of Darius Heyward-Bey leaves a vacancy opposite Denarius Moore.

Ford has missed a year and a half with foot problems. If he's fully recovered from surgery to start this season, he could be a sometimes explosive weapon out of the slot. Like all Raiders receivers, he'll have trouble posting good numbers for a bad offense.

Injury Status: Out -

Except in 2011, Cribbs has generally not been a factor in the passing game. He may get more run at wideout with the Raiders, but his real value is as a kick and punt returner, where he has scored 11 career touchdowns (compared to just seven TD receptions). Worth a flyer in leagues that count return stats.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

No other TE on the roster is much of a threat in the passing game. However, Ausberry's lack of blocking ability means he likely won't be on the field enough to be a fantasy asset, even in deep leagues.
