Oakland Raiders’ Week 9 Stock Report

It’s about that time to buy or sell Oakland Raiders’ player stocks based on Week 8 performances. This week’s report heavily features offensive talent, as the Raiders gashed the New York Jets' top-five defense.

In consecutive weeks, Oakland’s offense rag-dolled two solid pass defenses, compiling a combined 71 points and 615 passing yards over two games.

In Week 8, offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave’s well-oiled offensive machine kept rolling and ran over Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie in the process.

Based on the symbolic first throw at Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, the team has developed a strong sense of confidence in its vertical attack.

On Sunday, running back Taiwan Jones flashed exceptional speed and vision on a long reception for a score. To avoid repetition, he’s omitted from this report, but his catch-and-run touchdown deserves honorable recognition.

Whose stock rises? Which player continues to lose traction on his starting job? Let's investigate.
