Darrius Heyward-Bey Fantasy Update: Raiders WR Leads Team With 89 Receiving Yards

Darrius Heyward-Bey led the Oakland Raiders with five receptions for 89 yards, an amazing performance when one thinks about it. Both Kyle Boller and Carson Palmer threw three interceptions each and were a combined 15-of-35. Bey's day could have been better with a touchdown reception, but until the Raiders sort out the quarterback situation, the lack of scoring might persist.

Heyward-Bey came into the week with 345 yards and a touchdown on the year. While the Raiders' passing game had been strong, the ground game was the focus for much of the early portion of the year.

Relief may be coming for Heyward-Bey Owners. With this past week's Carson Palmer trade, the Raiders receivers should see an uptick in production if Palmer performs up to the expectations.

Heyward-Bey was ranked No. 27 among receivers heading into the week by Yahoo! Sports.

Dwayne Bowe Fantasy Update: Chiefs WR Gains 76 Yards

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe put up a solid, if unspectacular, fantasy football line against the Oakland Raiders. he had team highs with six receptions for 76 yards. However, this game ended his streak of three straight games with a touchdown catch and two straight games with more than 100 receiving yards.

It's been feast or famine for Bowe owners in the 2011 NFL season. He's topped 100 yards three times, and scored four touchdowns in Chiefs' past three games, but had just 17 yards in the season opener against Buffalo. It's probably safe to assume that Bowe will be feasting more often than not, but there's still a chance, as he deals with Kansas City's inconsistent offense, that he could go missing for a week here and there.

VIDEO: Todd Haley, Hue Jackson And Another Awkward Post-Game Handshake

It wasn't quite the scene last week's near-rumble between Jim Harbaugh and Jim Schwartz was, but we were treated to another cold post-game handshake on Sunday after the Kansas City Chiefs throttled the Oakland Raiders. As Todd Haley and Hue Jackson headed to the center of the field, it was clear the Raiders' head coach wasn't happy. By the time they did connect to exchange pleasantries, Jackson could be seen gesturing and saying something to Haley, though nobody is quite sure what.

Here's the video of the interesting handshake.

It would appear Jackson was upset with Haley's decision to throw deep late in the fourth quarter, just before the Chiefs took a knee to end it. Or it could've just been sour grapes -- Carson Palmer and Kyle Boller combined to throw six interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns, and the Raiders offense never got into gear.

Seems like these handshakes are a recipe for disaster. At some point, a coach is going to deck his opponent in a heated moment.

NFL Scores Week 7: Chiefs Vs. Raiders

It didn't matter if it was Kyle Boller or Carson Palmer for the Raiders, the Kansas City Chiefs secondary picked off each three times on the road to a 28-0 shutout of the Oakland Raiders.

Carson Palmer Replaces Kyle Boller, Throws Pick-Six

It's been a downright terrible day for the Oakland Raiders quarterbacks. In fact, it might be a good idea to just use running backs out of the wildcat and cut out the middle man. You see, Kyle Boller started the game and it was about as predictable as could be. Boller came out and immediately threw an pick-six.

But Boller wasn't done -- not by a longshot. In addition to the early interception that was returned for a touchdown, Boller added two more picks as the Raiders offense struggled to get anything going. It was only a matter of time before the Kyle Boller era ended.

In the second half, Boller's day came to a merciful end as Carson Palmer made his debut. Except things haven't gone so hot for Palmer, either. For example, Palmer joined the pick-six parade!

So there's that. Boller was 7-15 for 61 yards and Palmer is 7-14 for 83 yards so far, with the former throwing three interceptions and the latter one. Either way, the quarterback play hasn't been great and with Darren McFadden dealing with some kind of foot injury, the Raiders' offense is struggling.

UPDATE: As this was published, Palmer threw a second interception. If you're wondering what's on the line in this game, Jason LaCanfora lets you know:

Kyle Boller's Day In A Photo

Hey, Kyle Boller! Congratulations on your first start. I know it was because Carson Palmer had no idea what was in the playbook, but at least you got some run! So how'd it go out there? Tear it up and fling the ol' pigskin around a bit? Shred some defenses?

VIDEO: Chiefs CB Javier Arenas Wildcat Touchdown

The Kansas City Chiefs broke out the wildcat against the Oakland Raiders today. With running back Jamaal Charles out for the season, Todd Haley turned to another of his speedy players, albeit an unconventional one. Cornerback Javier Arenas came into the game in the third quarter for the play. Here is video of the touchdown, featuring the replay as well.

Arenas took the snap, faked the handoff and ran it in for a seven-yard touchdown. That touchdown put the Chiefs up by a score of 21-0.

Jackie Battle was supposed to be the Chiefs main running back today. Instead, Arenas and LeRon McLain have the Chiefs' two rushing  touchdowns. Battle has ten carries for 44 yards today. 

It’s been a big day for the Chiefs’ defensive backs. A first quarter interception of Oakland QB Kyle Boller gave the Chiefs a 7-0 lead, and they haven’t looked back since.

Carson Palmer came into the game after Kyle Boller threw three interceptions, putting the Raiders in a hole that will be tough to dig their way out of with the game in the second half.

Darren McFadden Fantasy: Raiders RB Sidelined With Injury, Questionable Return

Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden can't score many fantasy points today, because he was injured early in the football game. McFadden had just two carriers for 4 yards and caught one pass for 3 yards before leaving the game with an undisclosed injury. He was seen on the sideline with his right foot wrapped.

McFadden should continue to be one of the NFL's better options at running back going forward, and Carson Palmer's presence might help reduce opponents' efforts to stack the box against the Raiders runner. After running for 50 yards and a touchdown on Oakland's opening drive against Cleveland in Week 6, McFadden gained just 30 yards in the second half, as the Raiders struggled without Jason Campbell, who left with a broken collarbone.

VIDEO: Kyle Boller Starts Over Carson Palmer, First Throw A Pick 6

After a week of cat and mouse where Oakland Raiders Head Coach Hue Jackson refused to name a starting quarterback against the Kansas City Chiefs in week 7, Kyle Boller got the go-ahead start with Palmer still not game ready. Boller's first throw ended up being intercepted and returned for 59 yards for a touchdown by Kansas City.

Sebastian Janikowski Status Update: Dave Rayner To Replace Seabass

The Oakland Raiders will be without their placekicker Sebastian Janikowski this week when they take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. Janikowski is one of the better fantasy football and real football kickers in the NFL because of his powerful leg. He made three 50+ yard field goals against the Houston Texans two weeks ago.

In Janikowski's place, the Raiders will have kicker Dave Rayner do the kicking. Rayner was signed over the weekend by the Raiders in case Janikowski couldn't go. This will be Rayner's 7th team in five seasons in the NFL. He's played with the Indianapolis Colts, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals, and now the Oakland Raiders.

Jackie Battle Status Update: Chiefs RB Probable, Should Be Featured Back

Jackie Battle was a relative unknown to people who aren't fans of the Kansas City Chiefs up until Week 5. Then, with Thomas Jones putting in another average performance, he burst onto the fantasy scene with a fantastic 19 carry, 119 yard performance against the Indianapolis Colts. Battle has been listed as probable all week following the Chiefs' bye week, but he's fully participated in practice and should get his chance to be the featured back against the Oakland Raiders. From the KC Star:

"We basically have a plan in terms of not equally distributing the carries," [offensive coordinator Bill] Muir said, "but certain plays we maybe like with a certain player. Obviously you get in a situation where a guy is running tough and he's running for extra yards - the kind of game sometimes dictates who that back is."

What does that mean for his potential fantasy numbers? It's hard to say. Battle was fantastic against the Colts, while Jones' age and level of performance suggest that Battle is going to see plenty of carries. However, he's only put up huge numbers on one occasion and it's tough to bank on a guy like that putting in a repeat performance.

Sebastian Janikowski Injury Update: Raiders Kicker Out

UpdateRaiders name Janikowski's replacement.

The Oakland Raiders will be without their placekicker Sebastian Janikowski this week when they take on their AFC West rival, the Kansas City Chiefs. Janikowski is one of the better fantasy football and real football kickers in the NFL because of his powerful leg. He made three 50+ yard field goals against the Houston Texans two weeks ago.

While missing a kicker isn't a huge deal for most teams, Janikowski is about as much of a weapon as you can get out of a kicker. He can boom kick offs and actually let you score from mid-field. On the season, Janikowski has hit on 5 out of 6 50+ yard field goal attempts.
