Veteran wide receiver Derek Hagan signed with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Veteran wide receiver Derek Hagan signed with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday, the Mercury News reports. Hagan played a possession role in his six games with Oakland last season, catching 11 passes for 114 yards. The Raiders needed depth at wideout, with Denarius Moore (hamstring), Jacoby Ford (foot) and Juron Criner (ankle) all hampered by injuries.

Analysis: Moore and Ford are questionable, though still could play in Monday night's game against the San Diego Chargers, and Criner is expected to be dressed as well. Factor in Darrius Heyward-Bey and Rod Streater, and it's hard to see Hagan making much of a fantasy impact, if any, this week or further down the road. This move strengthens the Raiders much more than it helps fantasy owners.
