Khalil Mack‘s emphatic march toward a top-10 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft continues to gain steam. At Buffalo’s pro day on Tuesday, the outside linebacker put forth a tremendous workout, which was held indoors at the Buffalo Bills’ facility. Representatives from 32 NFL teams attended the pro day, and Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine and Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie were among the notable attendees. Mack, who weighed in at 252 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds (he only ran the 40 once), which topped the 4.65 official time that he ran at the NFL Scouting Combine. He worked out both in space and with his hand in the ground, and blew people away with his […]

Stay put, Matt: When the Raiders said they weren’t committed to Terrelle Pryor, they weren’t kidding. Pryor has been dealing with knee issues, but he’s practicing again as of today … except it’s with the second unit. Matt McGloin has been named Oakland’s starter against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie ambushed the Texans by throwing three scores and no picks. I’ve said this before and will say it again: be extremely cautious about buying in on QBs who have great initial success (ie beginner’s luck). Take Case Keenum as one of many examples — another guy who hit the ground running, set off a fantasy waiver wire stampede, then tapered off as soon as defensive coordinators had some film they could […]
Matt McGloin started his first NFL game for the Oakland Raiders and quickly earned his first That Helps No One award. Read on to learn why.

Sit Stevie: According to a report on the official Bills team site, coach Doug Marrone “(doesn’t) feel good” about Stevie Johnson’s chances of seeing the field in Week 11. Johnson picked up a groin injury last week against the Steelers, but he hasn’t been a consistent fantasy threat when he’s healthy. Stevie seems to have one good week every so often, then lets his owners down more often than not. If you had been banking on him starting this week, you may want to jump on the waiver wire and make other plans. Broken Law: Remember when going into the season, the consensus was BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovanni Bernard would split carries until a winner emerged? Bernard went on to […]

In today’s Three and Out: Mike James is hurting; Terrelle Pryor is hurting worse than first thought … and is Ray Rice hurting?
Nick Foles made history in Oakland as the Philadelphia Eagles destroyed the Oakland Raiders. In the process, Foles earned the Week 9 KABOOM! award. See just how big of a day Foles had here.
In today’s Three and Out: Rob Gronkowski continues to be uncertain for the Patriots; it’s a little more certain that Christian Ponder and Terrelle Pryor won’t play.
In today’s Three and Out: Terrelle Pryor’s status for Week 4 is up in the air while Le’Veon Bell could touch down for the Steelers this week.
Peyton Manning is probably the most automatic player in fantasy football right now. Probably. I should change that to just automatic. But here’s the thing, if you had him on Monday night, and let’s say you needed 28.86 points, you had to feel pretty good. And if you have Montee Ball to boot, there’s no way you could lose, right?
In today’s Three and Out: Robert Griffin III has been cleared, but no word on whether he’ll start Week 1; the Raiders haven’t named a starter — but for a vastly different reason.
