The Raiders :OAK-NFL: are 3-4 with a strong runningback in Darren McFadden and passing attack led by Carson Palmer.  They have scored 139 points in 7 games which isn't bad but not good enough to cover their suspect defense.  Still, there is glimmer of hope in Oakland.  They play in a weak division.  The Broncos appear to be the front runner with floundering San Diego right behind them.  However, Oakland could leap past San Diego with a Chiefs upset on TNF this week.  How could the Raiders schedule play out this season?

Below is the remaining schedule with predicted losses in red and predicted wins in green.  The remaining schedule starts off with the rematch of Super Bowl XXXVII.

Week - Date - Opponent
9 Sun November 4      Tampa Bay Buccaneers                
10 Sun November 11     @ Baltimore Ravens               
11 Sun November 18      New Orleans Saints               
12 Sun November 25     @ Cincinnati Bengals   
13 Sun December 2      Cleveland Browns               
14 Thu December 6      Denver Broncos               
15 Sun December 16      Kansas City Chiefs               
16 Sun December 23     @ Carolina Panthers               
17 Sun December 30     @ San Diego Chargers

That outcome leads to an 8-8 record which may even get them to the playoffs in a very weak AFC.  They can beat Denver at home.  The Browns, Chiefs, Panthers, and Chargers are all comparable or weaker teams for Oakland.  Add another upset to the mix and the Raiders could be 9-7.  One thing we do know from the remaining schedule is that long winning or long losing streaks are likely.  Which Raiders team will we see down the stretch?  This one's for Al...

  • ldsjayhawk: It's probably not easy to get a hold of the teams you like on the site, eh?
    Today at 12:57:06 PM
  • nottathedaddy: Yeah but why change now.
    Today at 12:57:36 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: Eric's right.  I can't believe that.  That guy had been there since the beginning.
    Today at 12:57:52 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I always feel in Bush League that I would rather have guys in their favorite teams.  I guess I hope that they'll be more likely to stick around.

  • Eric: Hard to get Boston
    Today at 01:08:15 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I'll bet Boston is the hardest to get.
    Today at 01:09:48 PM
  • Eric: Yeah they are, oh well. Fun to use other teams
    Today at 01:10:47 PM
  • Eric: Usually if I want them I will ask the Boston owner if they wanna switch logos
    Today at 01:11:08 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: It is.  I have :SEA: in FGM.  I like that one, because they have a budget I am not used to having with KC.

  • norrya66: I love the Bush league, but I just can't follow fantasy for the whole MLB year
    Today at 01:16:07 PM
  • norrya66: I wish we had a weekly lineup submission league, but I know most people don't like them
    Today at 01:16:26 PM
  • SlackJack: Back to you Norryaa
    Today at 01:21:14 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: I don't always change my lineups daily.  I often will set it up at the beginning of the week.  It's a little more work, but if I know I won't have time.
    Today at 01:21:36 PM
  • Eric: Exactly
    Today at 01:22:58 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: norrya, how involved do you like to be up front?  I found that Armchair didn't really require daily changes as much.  That may be because I had a lot of injuries last season though.
