Oakland Raiders Week 17 Stock Report

The Oakland Raiders’ final stock report recognizes some unsung heroes who made safety Charles Woodson’s farewell a victorious drop-the-mic moment.

Two players who didn’t perform particularly well throughout the game but made critical plays deserve honorable mentions.

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers targeted linebacker Malcolm Smith in pass coverage with success. However, Smith forced a fumble on Chargers tight end David Johnson, which led to defensive lineman Benson Mayowa’s 40-yard fumble return to San Diego’s 3-yard line.

Smith and Mayowa put the Raiders in position to earn a victory, but which players excelled throughout the entire contest in solid performances from start to finish?

Who deserves credit as unheralded top performers in Week 16? Which player failed to solidify his case for a contract extension? We’ll discuss a milestone and a few solid contributors flying under the radar.
