Oakland Raiders: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
The Raiders pride themselves on drafting players with great physical gifts. If this group even puts things together they could be a respectable team in 2010. Still, it’s hard to know what this group of bandits are going to do.
Below we have the Raiders 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for Oakland, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
Gradkowski Should Start
JaMarcus Russell basically slapped his team in the face once again by showing up to voluntary workouts fatter than he was a year ago. This can’t sit well with owner Al Davis and maybe even he see that it’s time to move on from his former No.1 overall selection.
To be honest this team has some solid talent and a scrappy, underrated quarterback like Gradkowski could help this team become respectable in 2010.
Look for receiver Chaz Schilens as a deep sleeper this year for fantasy as he is back from a foot injury that cost him half of last season.
At running back, Darren McFadden and Michael Bush will fight it out for which player will start. With Justin Fargas out of the picture, both runners have stronger fantasy value this season.
Not Far Away On Defense
This defensive unit is not that far off from being a strong group after the acquisition of Kamerion Wimbley from the Browns. If the Raiders can play well at the defensive tackle positions, this group could give a few teams some tough games.
Watch out for the Raiders as a team that could surprise some people in 2o1o. Then again, they could just fall on their faces and lose double digit games. You just never know with the Raiders.
