12 for 30 with 208 yards, 2 INT and 1 TD in Week 1? It's not great, but we've seen worse. Unfortunately for Raiders Nation, the 2007 No.1 overall pick might just be no good. That being said, we figure he'll at least throw for a TD this week against last year's 28th-ranked pass defense after they got torched by Flacco last week.
The kid has all the potential in the world. He could be one of the great backs in the league. If he gets a full workload, he could get 1000 yards and more. It looks like they want to share carries though. He's a start though, in most leagues, for amount of potential.
Bush had a good week backing up McFadden in Week 1, to the tune of 12 carries for 55 yards and at TD. When Fargas gets back, one would imagine it'll be Bush's carries that he cuts into, and not McFadden, who also had a solid game against the Chargers. You never know though...
Had a big game Monday night, with 87 yards and a TD. Russell is going to need a WR to trust, and it looks like it might be the late round pick from Florida rather than the No. 7 overall pick from Maryland, Heyward-Bey. Does the level of play in the SEC better equip players to handle the speed of the NFL?
If Cassel is able to make his Kansas City debut, he'll still have his work cut out for him. He faces an underrated Raiders pass defense, that was 10th in the NFL last season and limited Phillip Rivers in Week 1. If Coyle starts, expect much of the same.
LJ will breathe a sigh of relief to be repeatedly running into the Raiders' soft middle rather than Haloti Ngata who helped limit him to 20 yards and a 1.8 yard per carry average in Week 1. He's not the elite runner he once was, but should be a decent No. 2 option. He's probably in for a long season.
Charles had eight touches against the Ravens. He should get around the same number this week and could be a dump off threat for whichever QB can't find an open WR. He's not recommended as an option with Larry Johnson healthy.
This talented third-year wideout has averaged 1000 yards during his first two years in the league. He caught a TD pass from Coyle against the Ravens and could really benefit from Cassel's return to the lineup.
The speedy Bradley was targeted 7 times by Brodie Coyle in Week 1, the most of any Chief. He has never gone for more than 380 yards any of his previous four years in the league. Every NFL WR is talented, and you never know when a guy will just bust out. Stay tuned to see if Chief QBs keep targeting him.
