Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast Ep.82: Oakland Raiders Offensive Projections with Dwain McFarland

Matt Waldman’s RSP Cast continues its 2019 Team Projection Series with Dwain McFarland with a deep dive into the individual and team performance of the Oakland Raiders offense.

Dwain McFarland returns to the show for an excellent conversation about how to project offenses and a look at the Raiders offense:

  • Are the criticisms of Jon Gruden’s offensive philosophy legit?
  • Depending on where you look at this game, Derek Carr is near-elite and highly alarming.
  • Were Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree a better receiver tandem for Carr’s game than Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams?
  • Which comedic cast could play the Raiders and Steelers star players and why is this a salient point for 2019?
  • Do we trust this team to supply the support necessary for Josh Jacobs to thrive?

As mentioned at the beginning of this podcast, I highly recommend reading McFarland’s new piece at the RSP site on How to Project NFL Offenses. If you’re a fantasy player, NFL beat writer, or football analyst, you should consider learning to do your own projections and Dwain has 20 years experience as well as success in high stakes fantasy leagues.

Even if you don’t have time to do projections and want pointers on how to select others, this article is a great resource. If you’re an RSP subscriber, you can also stay tuned for future RSP Newsletters where Dwain will be providing snapshots of individual player projections from his league-wide process.
