Oakland Raiders Week 8 Stock Report

On a rare occasion, this week’s Oakland Raiders stock report contains very few negatives. The Raiders dominated the San Diego Chargers for 45 minutes in Week 7.

Oakland's defense seemed complacent for the final quarter, which falls on defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. Nonetheless, his stock remains even due to his stellar game plan to keep the Chargers out of the end zone for three quarters.

Two reserves made key contributions on offense, and two defensive players helped set the tone for a physical and disruptive play style against the Chargers' passing attack.

One particular player who’s criticized for every miscue finally shows up on the positive side of this report. Another player continues to struggle, creating a small void within the Raiders' developing offense.

Whose performance caused a significant rise in stock? Who’s the non-factor within the offense?
