Top 10 Las Vegas Raiders Players Going Into the 2020 SeasonThe Raiders will move to Vegas in 2020 as weird as “Las Vegas Raiders” sounds they’re a dark horse candidate. The Team has some weapons and there’s no excuses not to make the playoffs. The Raiders have been irrelevant since 2002 and are looking to change that. I think it’s possible but we’ll see.
To me, their best is Josh Jacobs, a guy who put the league on notice last year with 1,150 yards and 7 touchdowns. He's a dangerous weapon with plenty of upside. Mike Mayock will have some fun with him, I can tell.
He's one of the elite RBs in the league and is sure to improve in the years to come.
Last year, he had a solid year and was one of the best on the Bears' defense. Chicago, you might have made a mistake letting him go. He'll contribute to a defense that looks sneakily good.
I like this fit. He's a veteran receiver, and he'll help fill the Amari Cooper void. Sure, his numbers dipped last season, but he didn't play in as many games, and the entire team was banged up. He's still a solid weapon for Derek Carr to utilize.
He actually had a productive season last year, with 651 yards and 6 touchdowns. He's a decent target, but nothing I'd consider elite. Rather, he's a serviceable option.
Here's a weapon that flies under the radar. Nobody really talks about him. Hunter Renfrow had a solid rookie season with 605 yards and 4 touchdowns. Not too bad at all, and he has the potential to grow even more.
This is their top draft selection, who has been hailed as a potential game-changer. He's the fastest guy in the draft and is now their Amari Cooper replacement. No need to remind you all about that AB experiment, right? I'm sure Mike Mayock will have some fun with this guy.
He was a solid player in LA last year, yet the Rams let him go for some reason. He'll fit in nicely here. With 135 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 2 interceptions, his numbers are not too shabby. Why exactly did the Rams let him go again?
He's been one of the best centers for the Raiders and has earned a few Pro Bowl bids these past few years. He's 31, so he still has some potential left.
He pulled a bit of a surprise by joining the Raiders a few seasons ago, after many thought he was done. However, he's still doing well. He's a good lineman who's a veteran, and his presence could help those around him develop. Although he doesn't have the best personality, the Raiders have never cared about that.
To me, Derek Carr is no different from Alex Smith. He's a serviceable veteran, but nothing beyond that. He had a decent 2016 season but then got injured. Since then, he hasn't been the same player. He's regressed, and while he has the skills, we need to see more. There's no reason he can't take this team to the playoffs.
